Orange Ya' Glad it's a Blog Hop?

Welcome blog hoppers! How fun is this little trip to all your Florida friends? 
I hope you were able to make a new friend or two. 
I've got some links for the rest of the hop at the end of this post just in case you 
happened to hop in here. I'm stop #11.
We're each offering a freebie and a glimpse at a paid product you might like. My freebie is from my favorite book for the end of the year, Last Day Blues. It's the companion book to First Day Jitters, another one of my faves. Click here to download from tpt.
And to keep the theme going, my paid product is my complete unit for Last Day Blues. I made this one about 2 years ago and when I went to get it ready for myself this year, I realized it needed a major upgrade, which I got to work on immediately!  If you already own it, just go to "your purchases" on tpt and you can download the new version. If not, feel free to check it out by clicking here.
And just for fun, here are some of my favorite books for the end of the year. 
Next hop stop is my adorable friend and real-life co-worker Caitlin at Kindergarten Smiles!

 I'm stop #11, so if you want to hop backwards through the rest, 
click on Lisa's super cute blog button. She's stop #10. 
If your OCD is freaked out by that, you can find the actual beginning of the hop right here at Mrs. Russell's Room. It's ok. I know how it is...
