When Melissa from 320 Sycamore invited me to participate in her Favorite Things 2020 Blog Hop I was thrilled. I love the other accounts participating, and it is always so fun to get ideas from other’s favorite things! Hope you find some new, fun ideas for you and your family!




Vegetable Chopper

I’m not really one for kitchen gadgets, but this one is worth taking out of the cupboard and cleaning. It makes onions, potatoes, and everything in between so simple. When I am really on top of things, I will chop everything I need for the week and it makes dinner prep or breakfast eggs so simple.

The Perfect Sweater

I loved this sweater so much, I bought it in all 3 colors. It is warm but not crazy hot and it is not too loose or too tight. It is a little bit cropped, so best to wear with higher jeans. Right now it is on sale for only $25 and you can get 10% off with code BROOKEJ5. Fits true to size!

Eyelash Serum

My eyelashes have always been short and stubby, but this serum has helped them fill out and grow. I have loved it! I tried other versions but they irritated my eyes, but this one is more natural and I haven’t had a problem in over 3 years. It’s only ($30) and lasts me at least 5 months. I love it!

Microfiber Hair Wrap

These have saved my hair from breaking and cut down my blow drying time significantly! They are so inexpensive, I am not sure what took me so long to get them. Would make a great gifts for friends with some cute packaging! ($8)



Simple Christmas Advent Calendar

I created this super simple, printable advent calendar to bring the nativity story to life with extra questions that allow you to explore deeper meanings and spark conversation with your family. This one is meant for families with a little older kids, but a younger version will be out next week. It is one of our all time favorite family Christmas traditions. Also great to use for a neighbor gift or send to a missionary. ($4.50)

Bleacher Seats

These have absolutely saved us at kids’ sporting events! They fold flat for transport and you can carry them on your back like a backpack…plus they are super light. These also make a great man or sports loving grandparent gift! ($55)


Electro Muscle Stimulator

This little gadget has SAVED us multiple times this year. It uses electric stimulation to help sore muscles, bad backs, and stiff necks or anywhere that is hurting. It has been a life saver and someone in our house is using it at least a couple times a week. At only ($37) it has more than paid for itself and kept us from needing PTs or chiropractors too often for minor discomfort.


VIKTOR JURGEN Neck Massage Pillow Shiatsu Deep Kneading Shoulder Back and Foot Massager with Heat-Relaxation Gifts for Women/Men/Dad/Mom-FDA Approved


We got this little baby last year and everyone LOVES it. It is perfect, portable, and can get to just about any sore spot. ($40)
