12 in 12 Linky

Incredibly random and weird fact about me. My favorite number is 6. Don't ask me why but I came to this decision years ago, when I  seven, and decided that six had been hands down the best year of my life!  And it stuck. So by default, I'm partial to increments of six too. Ya know, 12...24...36... 

All this random info to tell you that I am ALL OVER Hadar and Kristen's 12 in 12 linky going on right now!!

12. Favorite movie you watched: 
If we're being truthful I hardly saw any new movies this year. So this is a tricky one. But I guess I will go with The Hunger Games since I ate up all three books and was not disappointed by the movie.  Although Magic Mike is a very close runner up. (Yes the plot was terrible. The dancing was not.)

11. Favorite TV series:
Still Grey's Anatomy. Yes, I'm still watching Shonda, but I'm mad you killed off Lexie & Sloan!

10. Favorite restaurant:

The Cheescake Factory!! The closest one is 40 minutes away and I still go. This was my birthday slice!

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Ziplining in Costa Rica-- I'd do it again and again!!

8. Favorite gift you got:

This wall. The hubs had it installed in our bedroom  for my birthday...
{My Wall}

...after I this one in a model house below and fell in love!!

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
centsational girl kate home office 

6. Favorite blog post:

It was my first time ever in Sin City. I went with my mom and we had a blast-!!  I also met a room full of  amazing bloggers in real life, which also led to some new friendships :)

5. Best accomplishment: 
 Opening my TPT shop & starting my blog was a huge accomplishment for me this year. I jumped into both head first the same week after I had  hemmed and haw'd about doing it for awhile because I felt a little intimidated putting myself out there like that.  If anything, I wish I had signed up sooner. I am so proud of the work I have put into both and blessed by the friendships I have made and knowing that they have made me a better teacher!!

4. Favorite picture:
Sunset in Costa Rica <33

3. Favorite memory:

{Three of the best friends a girl could ever have}
Dancing the night away at my best friend's wedding with some of my best friends!

2. Goal for 2013:
Getting into the best shape I've ever been in. Cliche I know. But here's hoping. Although one thing is for sure, I won't be running any marathons along the way. 

{Ps. My SECOND favorite Pin of the year..hehe}
