12 in 12

Hello friends!! I know I have been absent the past few weeks, but I have been enjoying some quality time with my little one! I love Christmas break!! :) I also love this linky party that I found called 12 in 12 by Miss Kindergarten and A Teeny Tiny Teacher!!

So here goes!!

12. Favorite  Movie: 
Definitely The Hunger Games! I couldn't put the books down, and I absolutely loved the first movie! I did see Lincoln too a few weeks ago, and it runs a very close 2nd!

11. Favorite TV Series:
I love Law and Order: Special Victims Unit!! My hubby and I watch the marathon that comes on TC every Tuesday!

10. Favorite Restaurant: 
Believe it or not, my favorite restaurant is Applebees! It has always been the place that me and friends go, and now I love to go with my hubby and little one!

9. Favorite New Thing: 
My favorite new thing that I tried is Teachers Pay Teachers! I LOVE it!!! I am so thankful my good friend Ginger introduced me to it and the blogging world!

8. Favorite Gift:
My sweet hubby got me my first pair of TOMS for Christmas this year! I love them! They are absolutely the most comfortable shoes I have EVER worn!! I will definitely be buying more!! :) 

7. Favorite Thing You Pinned: 
I love this, and it speaks for itself!! :) 

6. Favorite Blog Post: 
This would definitely have to be my very first post!! It was on Saturday, June 16!!

5. Favorite Accomplishment: 
My favorite accomplishment this year is definitely going to have to be being my school's ELA Committee Chair! I have successfully ran 2 different reading incentive programs (sponsored by outside organizations), and they were pretty successful! I have really felt like I have made a big difference in students' lives at my school through these programs! 

4. Favorite Picture: 
Well, my favorite picture that I will always treasure is the last picture taken of my Mom and my little one. She passed away suddenly on June 4, 2011. She was my best friend, and I still have not gotten over her passing. I love her very much, and I love all the pictures I do have of her and my son, but this one is special! 

3. Favorite Memory: 
My favorite memory from this year would definitely be the annual beach trip my family takes together during the week of July 4th! It is always so much fun, and I love spending all that quality time with my family! :) 

2. Goal for 2013: 
My goal for 2013 is simply to live well, love much, and laugh often!

1. One Little Word: 

There is my 12 in 12 for 2012!!! :) 

Now, it is your turn!
