12 in '12

I'm linking up with Kristin (Teeny, Tiny Teacher) and Hadar  (Miss Kindergarten) for their end of the year linky party! So much has happened this year, I'm excited to join in!

My 12 in '12 

12) Favorite Movie Watched

I haven't seen a movie in a theater all year. If we watch anything it's usually TV. My sister-in-law let us borrow What's Your Number a few weeks ago.. so I guess I'll say it's that.

We bought The Hunger Games at a black Friday sale. I really, really, really want to watch it, but I'm holding out that my hubby will read it first before watching, but I may have to watch it over break...

11) Favorite TV Series

Duck Dynasty. Home grown, humor. I also like the family aspect of a shared meal and prayer at the end of every episode.

I'm also the daughter of a game warden, so the great outdoors is in my blood :)

10) Favorite Restaurant

Willies Sports Bar. It's a local restaurant/bar in Manhattan the town of my Alma Matar (K-State, home of the Wildcats, whoot!) Luckily, we only live about 45 minutes away and find an excuse to get away to Manhattan about once a week and usually eat here.

9) Favorite New Thing I Tried

To learn how to use my DSLR camera. Went to a photography workshop with my best friend Lenses of Beauty put on by the wonderful ladies Laura & Emma (if you want to see some great photographers, check out their work!)  It was a fun afternoon, though I still have much to learn about my camera!

Here are a couple of images I took that day...   These were taken later in the evening at the Kat House Lounge. (A nice escape from the chilling outdoors.)

8) Favorite Gift Received

My wonderful fiance, minutes before I met him down the aisle had gave me a note by way of one of my bridesmaids. He is the sweetest guy ever.

7) Favorite Thing Pinned

I have lots and lots of pins...11,000+... but this is the first that comes to mind.

My hubby and I built our kitchen table, and someday, if we have the 3 boys that my husband is pushing for, something like this will definitely need to be made.

6) Favorite Blog Post

This is by far the most viewed post on my humble blog, the post with my first freebie.  I've used this resource throughout the year and I hope some of the people who viewed it found use out of it too.

5) Favorite Accomplishment

This last May I graduated from K-State with honors and shortly after was hired for my dream job. {It was a surprise hire, out of the blue, meant leaving another job...but this was definitely the right move to make, and I don't regret it one bit.)

4) Favorite Picture

I honestly cannot pick just one. June 2nd, 2012 was the best day of my life so far so I have to share a few pictures.

The days leading up to the wedding were cRazY! At the end of the day I was married to my best friend and the craziness didn't matter one bit. 

3) Favorite Memory

Getting married see above :)

2) Goal for 2013

I teach in a 1-1 iPad school district. AMAZING. But, I don't incorporate the iPad nearly enough. It's pathetic really. This is changing! 

I also want to be better at positive communication to home (or any for that matter). I don't feel like I'm making a good enough effort in this area either.

1) One Little Word


Here's hoping you have a wonderful new year!
