12 in '12 Linky Party

                                               And here are 12 favorite things from 2012!

12. Favorite movie you watched:
Didn't go to the movies at all this year, but I enjoyed a video series we did at church called "Not a Fan"  -- about being a follower of Christ. 
11. Favorite TV series:
NCIS -- I'd rather watch NCIS reruns than about anything else on TV. But I admit I have to look away sometimes on the gross autopsy parts.
10. Favorite restaurant:
When my daughter and I were in Denver, Colorado last month, we went to a little place called "Corner Bakery" for breakfast 3 or 4 times -- very yummy panini there.
9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Getting up early to have some quiet time before going to school -- reading "Jesus Calling" and drinking my "green monster" smoothie.

8. Favorite gift you got:
My Kindle Fire -- wish I had about 6 of them for my kinderkids to use for reading all the free books I have downloaded. I also like my i-pad furnished by the school -- but I still have a LOT to learn.

7. Favorite thing you pinned:

My book barn that my husband built after looking at the one on Reagan Tunstall's blog.
6. Favorite blog post:
First Day of Kindergarten because over 600 people actually looked at it!!
5. Best accomplishment:
It's a tie -- getting every kid in my class to benchmark scores at the end of the school year was my best professional accomplishment.  But getting to perform on the international stage with my Sweet Adelines barbershop chorus was a dream come true! And having over 10,000 page views on my little blog is just plain amazing.

4. Favorite picture:
Picture of my sweet husband at the Isle of Palms this summer
3. Favorite memory:
Vacation in Charleston, SC with my family
2. Goal for 2013:
Same goals I have every year -- lose weight and get more organized -- and one new one: start leaving the school earlier than 5:00!
