12 in '12 Linky Party :)

Hello Friends! Happy miserable Magnificent Monday! I am super excited to be a part of Miss Kindergarten  and A Teeny Tiny Teacher's 12 in '12 Linky Party!

If you want to join, all you have to do is click the link above to get the easy peasy directions. So here are my 12 favorite things from the year 2012 (how is it possible that it is almost over already?!)

12. Favorite movie you watched: 
I am a total movie fanatic! And I know this is going to sound very teenybopper, but  I absolutely LOVED Twilight Breaking Dawn Part II. What can I say? I'm a 'sucker' (pun intended) for some far-fetched romance!
11. Favorite TV series:
Have you seen this show?! IT IS SOOOO GOOD!  The shenanigans that these people get up to are outrageous, and it is completely addicting. You have been warned.

10. Favorite restaurant:
Without a doubt it has to be "2 Meatballs in the Kitchen". Their breaded tilapia is so good, I could eat it every day of my life!

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
This would definitely have to be posting things on Teacherspayteachers! I began selling in early November and cannot believe the response I have had! I just loooove being able to share with others, and the extra income doesn't hurt either!!
8. Favorite gift you got:
Ooooooh my iPad!! How did I ever live without it? I use it for everything.
7. Favorite thing you pinned:
Oh my goodness, I have pinned hundreds of fabulous things this year! Pinterest is so awesome, I mean ridiculously fantastic. I'm not even sure if these are my most favorite of all, but they are pretty good!
This is definitely me! Doesn't it feel like that sometimes?
I adore this quote. It is meant for me and it makes me feel like I am sparkly on the inside!
6. Favorite blog post:
My favorite blog post this year has to be my very first one ever! I am so proud that I have finally become a part of the blogging family :)

5. Best accomplishment:
 I feel that I have truly achieved more this year than I ever thought possible! I am most proud of the success of my students and how much I have helped them to learn in just 5 short months. It's amazing what they can do at 5 years old.
My Little Rockstars
 4. Favorite picture:
My favorite pictures are from my summer vacation in Las Vegas. It was a total blast! I cannot wait to go back again one day.

3. Favorite memory:
My favorite memories all come from being surrounded by my family. My time with them is so special to me and they are filled with such warmth, happiness, and love. I feel so fortunate to have them.
2. Goal for 2013:
The same goal I have had for the past two years unfortunately - to lose weight! Can I get an amen out there sistas? 
In my dreams... ha!
And also to become the most amazing teacher that I can possibly be!
1. One Little Word:
Fulfilled - which is exactly how my life feels right now! I couldn't be more lucky!
I can't believe the year is almost over - boy time sure is flying these days. Please leave me a comment with a link to your 12 in '12 so I can read all about you!! Have a wonderful evening friends!


  1. I want to go to Vegas! Looks like so much fun!

    Learning With Mrs. Leeby

    1. You absolutely have to go one day! It was such a blast! I didn't walk away with any extra money, but the experience made it more than worth it!

  2. LOVE linkys!! Just found your blog from the 12 in '12 posts!

    We have a few things in common, BD2 - I felt cheese-ball for mentioning it too, but oh wells!!

    I am in love with my iPad too...I just worry because it's district property. Need to get one of my own, but a MacBook is my #1, well after a Keurig {HA!}.

    Thanks for following, I returned the favor!! Have a great few weeks - today was hard for my Kindies...praying that today was the worst of it, cause this week will be ROUGH if we don't pull it together!

    Merry Christmas!

    1. It's so fun finding new blogs, I am so excited to have found yours :) I totally felt nerdy with the BD comment, but I just had to do it! Ha! My Keurig rocks my world, you have to try the chai tea latte if you haven't already, it's delish! Thank you so much for following and I feel your almost Christmas crazy kid pain! WE CAN DO IT :) Merry Christmas!

  3. You are a doll! The weight thing is/has been on my list of things to do that never get done. We can do this! Right?! ;D
    Cruz'n in First

  4. I am having so much fun going through everyone's favorite things for this fun linky party!! We are going to link up too (if I ever stop reading everyone else's) Haha.!! We are your newest followers too!!
    I have to say that I really enjoyed Breaking Dawn II also. I really enjoyed the books, but never really got into the movies, I thought they were a big cheesy and made me laugh, but this one I really liked and actually liked the characters and enjoyed watching it.
    5 year old are the best!! They are amazing!!
