11 in 11 linky party!!

So I am LOVING all of these linky parties because it actually gives me a chance to participate in this lovely community since I am incompetent and can't get my you-know-what together to upload my documents!! I also love it because it gives me a chance to get my blog out there because, as you can see, I'm a little lacking in the follower department!

Anyway, enough of my pitty party. I am linking up with Kristin over at A Teeny Tiny Teacher, and Hadar over at Miss Kindergarten for their 11 in 11 linky party!

Here goes:

11. Favorite movie you watched:
This is a really tough one because I am obsessed with movies and saw SO many good movies this year! However, I have to say, my first favorite would have to be The Help.

This honestly miiiight be one of my favorite movies of all time! I read the book this summer and was SO pumped when I heard it was going to be a movie! I seriously spent all summer looking forward to this movie and I was definitely NOT disappointed! I am always nervous about books that become movies because sometimes they turn out realllyyy badly. But this movie matched up almost perfectly with the book and the casting was SENSATIONAL! get it. I love this movie. Moving on.

10. Favorite TV series:
Again, another hard one because I have sooo many shows that I watched. And let me tell you, my TV show list is preettyyy comparable to that of a 17 year old girl, so I will go with the least embarrassing one.

Ok so I realize I am WAY behind the times seeing as how this show came out when I was a senior in high school, but I just recently started watching this show last week and fell in L.O.V.E.!!!! My brother has been telling me to watch it for like the past 6 years, but I just never got around to it. So last week while babysitting my amazingly precious nephew, I decided I would start watching season one on their netflix. OH-EM-GEE I am now OBSESSED! I just love how it's a sitcom with all the funny, lighthearted, sometimes dirty humor, but it's also kinda like a drama because the episodes follow each other! And trust me, the LAST thing I need is another show seeing as how I already have like 50 I watch every week. Ok, maybe not 50 but I have at least 2 on every night, {sometimes 3} Except Thursday, that's my night to catch up on all the shows I didn't have time to watch during the week! :) Anyways needless to say, let's add this one to the weekly line up because I LOVE it!!!

9. Favorite restaurant:
Easy. It will and FOREVER be:

My roommates and I literally used to go here like 3 times a week. There was even one girl who worked there that knew me when I came in and knew EXACTLY how much sour cream I liked in my burrito bowl. {Which, let me say, is A LOT} Of course, I love food, so I have a lot of restaurants that I LOVE, but Chipotle will forever be my all time fave...even though starting Monday I am giving it up for 10 months until after the wedding :(

8. Favorite new thing you tried:
SUPER easy! BLOGGING!! I have really enjoyed getting to "know" other teachers in so many different areas and have loved getting so many fun and exciting ideas to try out on my firsties! This has definitely made my year so fun and creative and I look forward to everything that is to come in this sweet little bloggy community! Thanks to everyone who has viewed and commented on my blog to help me feel included! My New Years Resolution is to figure more out so that I can begin to give even half as much as what I have swiped borrowed from everyone! :)

7. Favorite gift you got:
Definitely going to have to go with my most favorite thing in the world....

BOOTS! I am super obsessed with boots and that's basically all I asked for this year! {Besides sweater dresses, my other obsession} I got three pairs for Christmas and bought myself another pair yesterday with a gift card I got! The pair above would have to be my favorite that I received though. My future mother-in-law got me these and I absolutely LOVE them! :)

6. Favorite thing you pinned:
Pinned Image
LOVE these! I think these are super cute and I am hoping that my wonderfully talented friend who teaches 6th grade at my school {and who is also making my wedding cake} will love me enough to make these for favors at my wedding! How complicated, messy, impossible, CUTE are those??!

5. Favorite blog post:
This shouldn't be hard seeing as how I don't have that many!
I like my Pumpkin Parade post because I think that idea {Thank you, Lauren is SUPER cute and I am so pleased with how creative my kiddos got with them!!

4. Best accomplishment:
Ok, this is going to sound SUUUPER lame and reflect on how sad my life must be if this is my biggest accomplishment this year, but trust me, this is big for me. Ok, so I'm sure I had other accomplishments this year, but this is the biggest one coming to mind right now. I FINALLY parted ways with all most of my old Vera Bradley purses/wallets. I have a very sick huge obsession with Vera Bradley and have collected an unimaginable amount of it over the years. To most people, this probably wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that I am super weird and won't reuse a purse after I have exhausted carried it. The other problem is that I have refused to get rid of them, thinking mayyybbeee I'll reuse them someday {I NEVER have}. This has caused for a huuuge mess in the top of my closet. So, this year, I finally couldn't take it anymore, and took them to school and gave/sold them to my co-workers. They loved it, and now my closet is one step closer to being clean! Like I said...seems lame...but huge accomplishment in my world! :)

3. Favorite picture:
Ok, I am going to have to cheat on this one because I take SO many pictures!!!

Sweet baby T :)

2. Favorite memory:
November 4, 2011....When my sweet baby nephew was born!

1. Goal for 2012:
Ohhhh I have many....
Get organized
Eat healthier
Start a TPT store
Learn how to make cute little units and post them on my blog
Get in Shape
The list could go onnnn and onnn!!!

Well thanks for stopping by you guys! I know I said I probably wouldn't be posting on here much but I couldn't pass up this linky party!! Head on over to Kristin and Hadar's blogs and link up!!

Wishing you all a very happy, safe, and SUPER fun New Year!! :)

  4. Wow - I carried the same purse for 7 years. Cost $70 from Sam Moon's and still looked great on the outside but I'm totally clueless on style. I bought my boots at the Tractor Supply - wait I live in TX so that makes sense, right? I love your blog - you're doing great. I'm your newest follower from the Linky party. Hope you'll visit my blog.
