12 in '12 Linky Party!!

Hi friends, sorry for the double post today!
With all of the giveaway excitement over here, I haven't had the chance to do any regular posts lately. I saw Hadar and Kristin's linky party & couldn't miss the chance to link up for the 12 in 12!

Click HERE to check it out!

Here it goes...My 12 in '12 favorites!:

12. Favorite movie you watched:
My favorite movie this brainer for me...Hunger Games!! I read the trilogy earlier in the year and was so psyched to see this movie!! I loved it every bit as much as I thought I would!

11. Favorite TV series:
I love me some Dexter!! And I love me some Michael C. Hall!! I am a few episodes behind, but am planning on setting some time aside to catch up this week...if my neverending stack of papers to grade ever dwindles down!

10. Favorite restaurant:
My favorite restaurant is definitely Outback Steakhouse. I love the prime rib there. They never disappoint!!

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Blogging and Teachers Pay Teachers!  I was a blog stalker until May of this year & decided to jump right in and join the fun. I am SO glad that I did. I have encountered so many wonderful and brilliant bloggers who have totally changed my perception on teaching. I also created my first TPT product back in May & it just keeps getting better!!

8. Favorite gift you got:
I'd have to say that my favorite gift is a gift that I gave to Kindle Fire! I absolutely LOVE it. After I saw my friend Michelle's kindle, I was sold!!

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
I have so many pins on my boards that I don't know where to begin. I LOVE ecards!! Here are a few of my favorites...
Downloading products from Teachers Pay Teachers is more addictive than Angry Birds & Draw Something combined.

'I am so glad I can go home at 3:30 to relax'..... Said no teacher ever!

and probably my favorite...


6. Favorite blog post:

This is a tough one, but I'd have to say it was the Monday Made It Post when I made crate seats for my classroom! I was so proud that I was actually able to make these without messing them up! lol 

5. Best accomplishment:
My best accomplishment was being voted Teacher of the Year.. I couldn't be more excited and honored for that opportunity!

4. Favorite picture:

This was at my little sister's wedding in November. What a great family picture!! :)

3. Favorite memory:
Back at the end of August, I was contacted by Good Morning America to air some of my back to school pictures. This little cutie of mine ended up on GMA!!

2. Goal for 2013:
My goal is to stay positive & do even better with my blogging and Teachers Pay Teachers. TPT and blogging have been a godsend and I have so many ideas just bubbling out of my head that I can't wait to share!

1. One Little Word:
Blessed! I couldn't be more blessed with everything in my life & want to remember this in 2013! :)


  1. I couldn't live without my Kindle Fire! I read all three Hunger Games on it.:)

  4. Haha, I've only seen one person put something other than Hunger Games for the favorite movie so far! And that picture of your student is precious! I wanted to do that, but I'm not in a regular class anymore. Maybe I'll just do it for my son.

    Don't Let The Teacher Stay Up Late
