You gotta get one of these!

Okay, so recently my best friend B was over visiting, like always.. and We were getting ready to go out and take some family photos, and I told her she could use the greatest invention ever.. and I just happened to own one of them.

Yup, this little pupppy right here, has only one tempeture settting, and that is all you stinkin' need with this. I love my Chi. I can't use it enough. When I get out of the shower.. and actually take the time to blow dry my hair, nothing is better than using this amazing straightener. Usually these things retail for $100+ and I know what you're thinking.."Who in their right mind would spend that much?!" Well I certainly wouldn't... I stole it! NO, I didn't steal it. I used one of my other favorite things in this whole wide earth... I used KSL... and I purchased it for a steal at $50. One of the best purchases in my life. I have made so many converts to the way of the Chi... I just felt inclined to share that with the blogging world.

So, as I started this post, it was a homage to my Chi... Than I thought.. But I have a ton of things I own, that I LOVE! So, in no particular order...
My glue gun.. Seriously! When people talk about needing ducktape... I reach for my glue gun. Probably the best 2 dollars ever.. You can't go wrong with these. I use it for all of my crafts, and I never seem to run out of things this little beauty can be used on...
My hot curlers.. These things probably went out of style back in the 80's but surprisingly they are still making them. This is the only thing I wanted for Christmas last year, and hot-dog I got it! One of my favorite gifts. If you have never used one of these, You need to come over and try it out. It takes like 15 minutes.. Well for me it takes 15 mins. To put in your hair.. I have a lot of hair. Than you wait 20 mins or longer if you so desire. Take them out, and amazingly beautiful hair. So much easier than curling every section.
My coveted Canoon 30EOS... I love this thing. I got this as a gift from my padre. I use this thing all the time... Can't you tell I used my little point and shoot to take a picture of it? I love everything about this camera. My attachments, my flash.. EVERYTHING!!!!!! I am not saying go out and spend tons of moola on a fancy camera.. But, make sure you do research on what you are purchasing, even if it is a little point and shoot. You can always get the most bang for your buck.
My CamelBak water bottle. I cannot get over how much I love this. One of the best water bottles I have ever owned. I have converted a few people to this little toy a few times. Even I am a convert. I will take this thing every where, and the best part. No spill. BPE free, and one of my favorite buys.
My sewing machine... It's probably one of the cheapest sewing machines ever made, has very little fancy buttons, or stitches it can do... But, what it does for me is enough... I make a little bit of everything with it.. So far nothing has really fallen apart... If you are reading this, and I made you something.. and it fell apart.. I don't wanna know... Okay, I do, cause now I feel bad, and I can fix it for you... But, for me. It's perfect!
And last, but not least... My Ipod... I purchased this little guy on KSL almost 3 years ago. I bought it for $90. A steal. The poor kid selling it, had to pay off his cell phone bill.. His loss, my gain. I purchased it, so I could make mine and Jon's wedding playlist, and used it for our reception. It's interesting because, I can remember parts of our reception, and what song I could hear in the background... Like, I remember Etta James, At Last, was playing while we cut our wedding cake... Cute right?! I use this thing ALL THE TIME!!! When I do my hair or make-up, crafting, cleaning... Just all the time. Oh also, side not. My skull ear plugs you see in the picture. Buy some. They are like $20 a pair. But so worth it. My ears are far to small for Ipod's ear plugs, these things fit perfectly, and don't hurt my ears one bit...

I hope you enjoyed my list of loves, and likes, and franky things I just cannot live without. I hope it inspired you to add a few things to your Christmas list.. or at least go out and try a few of the items... Or you are always more than welcome to come to my house and try one of them... except my water bottle... Love ya to peices but don't want your germs... Alright well, I am off to clean, and dance the morning away with some good music!
