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!
