Our Favorite Things Blog Hop

 
I'm so glad to be a part of this hop where we can share with you our favorite things! Here are a few of mine:
 
 
My favorite restaurant has got to be Chuy's! I only discovered it a few years ago, but I love it!
 
The food is good, the atmosphere is great, but the creamy jalapeno dip is the BEST! I literally eat chips and dip the whole time and don't even need to order food (although I usually do.)

 
 

This time of year, one of my favorite things is having holiday traditions with my kids. We are trying a new advent activity this year called, "Truth in the Tinsel." It is an ebook that you can purchase and download, and it includes verses to read and simple crafts to do each day leading up to Christmas!

It helps keep our minds and hearts focused on what we are really celebrating during this time!

 
One of my favorite things I use in my homeschool room is this 10 drawer cart!
 
 
I use it to organize the kids' independent work each day. They start at the top and work their way down, and can easily move from one subject to the next with little help from me!
 

Another of my favorite items we use for school are these Do-a-Dot markers! They are great for little ones to be able to paint without making a mess. There are also a lot of educational activities you can do with them.
 
 
I have several activities and products I've created to use these dot markers with to practice sight words, building fluency, letters, and numbers. Some of these will be 50% off this week - just visit my TpT store and look for "My Featured Items" near the top of the page!
