One of my most favorite things is checking out OTHER people’s favorite things.  So, naturally I was super excited to participate with 25 fellow bloggers in a favorite things giveaway and blog hop.  To one of you, I’ll be giving away a basket filled with some of my favorite things, worth over a hundred bucks!  After you check them out and enter my giveaway, be sure to stop by the other blogs, check out the baskets, and enter to win theirs.

 * This is a great way to get ideas for Christmas, find some great products for yourself, and check out some of the best blogs on the internet! *

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the goodies up for grabs…(you’ll find the links to each blog at the end of the post.)

But, first…let’s check out MY basket, packed with some of my favorite things…

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

Olay Professional ProX Advanced Cleansing System – so much cheaper than the other similar products, but works awesome!

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product – This is my favorite leave-in conditioner (for dry hair).  It makes my hair super smooth and soft.

Nalgene 32 oz. Water Bottle – I have a fetish with water bottles and Nalgene makes my favorite!  They’re super durable, have wide openings, and the lid is attached (hooray!)

Dover Coloring Book ‘Pinwheel Designs’ – When my kids have zapped every ounce of energy from me, I like to plop on the bed and mindlessly color in this book, while the husband watches football.  I know, so little kid.  But, it’s therapeutic and the designs are awesome.

Rosie Thomas CD ‘If Songs Could Be Held’ – I heart Rosie Thomas.  That’s all.

Mrs. Meyer’s Honeysuckle Countertop Spray – A delicious smelling natural cleaning product.  I love all Mrs. Meyer’s products!  I buy these bottles in cases from Amazon to clean my kitchen counters.

The War DVD – There’s something about this movie that makes me happy..  Maybe because a lot of it reminds me of my own childhood, but even more, it has a great message and is a perfect family movie.

Yummy Earth Organic Fruit Lollipops – Suckers made with real fruit and no artificial anything??  Yes, please.  These are so delicious.  Tastes just like the real fruit, and they should.  I love to buy big bins of these!

Body Back Company Scalp Massager – I put these in my husbands stocking last year, thinking it was kinda silly.  But, no.  The family fights over these things…they tickle your head soooooo good.  If you can get someone else to do it for you, you will be in instant heaven.

Alright, want to win my basket??  Enter here…(when you’re done, scroll down and visit all the other blogs and check out their favorite things.  I know that’s what I’ll be doing!)
