12 in 2012 Linky Party

I decided to link up with Miss Kindergarten AND A Teeny Tiny Teacher for their 12 in 12 Linky Party.  Better late than never, right?  

All you have to do is think back at your favorites in 2012 and add a few pictures. What a fun way to remember the year, huh!? You can use these prompts if you'd like, or just type up your 12 favorite things! 

12. Favorite movie you watched:
I NEVER go to the movies.  Like, ever.  I probably saw 2, MAYBE 3 movies this year.  I really liked the Hunger Games and the final Twilight movie.  And yes, I read both book series.

11. Favorite TV series:
My fave new series this year was Happy Endings.  I also love Up All Night.  Both are HILARIOUS.

10. Favorite restaurant:
I like food.  My fave restaurant is probably our local Anamia's OR 7 Salsas because they have the most amazing homemade tortillas that taste like my grandma's tortillas tasted.

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
I can't think of anything...maybe creating my own clip art borders?  I've only used them a couple of times because I've had NO extra time to create any lessons.  Hoping I'll get some more ideas on paper this coming year.

8. Favorite gift you got:
Massage gift certificate.

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
There are too many.  Who knows?

6. Favorite blog post:
My Classroom Tour (I spent a lot of time--and $$--completely changing my room this year).

5. Best accomplishment:
Selling my first product on Teachers Pay Teachers!  I had no idea if anyone would be interested, but apparently people are!  Yay.  

4. Favorite picture:
At Hudson's 1st Birthday Party, May 2012

3. Favorite memory:
LOTS!  So many memories with my sweet boy!  Love watching him DANCE!

2. Goals for 2013:
Become a better housekeeper, cook more, leave school earlier!

1. One Little Word:
Balance.  I feel like I haven't been balancing being a teacher and being a mommy very well.  I want to spend more time at home and less time at school.  As much as I love my students and what I do, I have to draw the line somewhere.  I will never get it all done, and I need to focus on my family more!  Also, I'd love to find some balance in staying healthy--hit the gym at least once a week!

LOVE this blessing.  I sung it in high school, and it was read at our wedding.  
I wish you all the best in 2013, fellow teachers!

Thank you so much for hosting this linky party, Miss K and Kristin!  Hop on over and join in the fun if you haven't already!  


  1. I am a new follower and I LOVE how cute your blog is...especially the button apples on the side! The pinned picture cracked me up!

    1. Thank you so much! I really like it, too--I've been thinking about investing in a custom blog design, but I'd want to keep some similar aspects of this one! :)

  2. That pinned picture is me! Life is too short to worry about how clean a house is! I love that blessing, too! The children's choir I sang in many years ago always finished by singing that song!
    Owl Things First!

    1. Um, yeah--just realized I typed "I SUNG this in h.s." The grammar po-po are coming for me! :)

    1. Aww, thanks, Barbara! My little boy makes my days brighter!

  4. I never, ever go to the movies. The only movies I saw this year were also Twilight and the Hunger Games. :-) Loved both book series as well!!

    1. How funny! I usually don't want to see the movies that come out, but there are actually a few right now I'd like to see: The Hobbit, Les Mis (I'm a musical theater nerd), and This Is 40! Odds are I won't be seeing any of them, but maybe! :)
