Frugal Friday Tip + more.....

Today, it has been almost a week since I've washed my hair!  you are thinking GROSS!!! right, no........ not at all.
I am making my own conditioner. 

This is the recipe (and for the life of me, I can't remember where I got it) but here it is...

Homemade Conditioner

 make a mixture of 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar,
little bit of lemon juice and
1 qt. water.

before I washed my hair, I put olive oil on my hair for 30 min., then I washed w/shampoo and then poured the "conditioner" on my hair, let it set for 5 min or so and then rinsed.  My hair is so soft and clean feeling.  Now, I know you are wondering about the smell.  Well, let me share, it smelled so horrible when I was poring it on my hair, I thought I was gonna die, BUT, the smell lasted for only a few minutes, and then not so bad..... After my hair dried, I couldn't smell in vinegar at all and my DH couldn't smell anything either.... so very successful I would say.....
Now, normally, I would have to wash my hair every other day b/c it would start to feel gross, and my head would get all itchy.  NOT a bit w/this new "rinse".  I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Next, I'll be making my own shampoo! :)

I just wanted to also report on my goals this week.  um, well.... sorta, o.k.  um, I lost my um....  list :) teehee :)

and moving on.... Joe made some Jambalaya for supper tonite. 

We had his parents over to help eat it.... we are planning on making this a monthly habit of fixin' a pot of jambalaya and inviting friends over to eat and play Wii.  Joe showed his 60 yr. old + parents how to play, Gordy played around of bowling, and Janice had a turn at the Island Flyover.  I think they had a good time :)

Oh, I'm from the Midwest, and am not a huge fan of spicy foods :( so this is what I ate for supper.

Toast w/strawberry jam/jelly, (i can't remember the difference)
