12 in '12 Linky

OK folks, if you have been here lately, you know I am all about the number 12!  I am linking up with A Teeny Tiny Teacher and Miss Kindergarten for their 2nd annual linky party called 12 in '12 Linky!


And since the Sound of Music is one of my all time favorites,
I love that "These are a few of my favorite things"

12. Favorite movie you watched: 
Hunger Games
I read all 3 books first in a week and immediately bought the DVD!

11. Favorite TV series:
General Hospital
Does that count?  Don't judge me:)

10. Favorite restaurant:
Anything Mexican with a fruity beverage of course!!
9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Blogging!  I love all the sweet comments:)

8. Favorite gift you got:
Alex and Ani bracelets
They are made in Rhode Island which I love and expanding as we speak!
I just bought another one at Disney World!

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
 Cooking corn on the cob in the oven...EASY and DELICIOUS!!!!

6. Favorite blog post:
I am excited as it has one day left and I was so surprised and touched by the FABULOUS bloggers who supported me in this endeavor! Check it out is you haven't already:)

5. Best accomplishment:
Opening a TpT store.
I am not one to step out of my comfort zone, so this was a biggie!

4. Favorite picture:
It is such an ordinary picture, but it is Dear Hubby and I at Outback having dinner for date night.
I have the BEST husband in the world.  He loves and supports me through all I do! 

3. Favorite memory:
We usually go once a year.  This year Zach chose to go for his birthday and Justin said to me
while on It's a Small World"Mommy, you are so happy here!"
I never thought about it, but I guess it is the happiest place on earth! 
2. Goal for 2013:
Live a  healthy life.

1. One Little Word:

Off to blog stalk read others' linky posts now instead of grading papers.  My formal evaluation is tomorrow and I am SO NERVOUS!  You would think that after 18 years of teaching, it would not matter...NOT!
