12 in '12

I am linking up with A Teeny Tiny Teacher and Miss Kindergarten for..

12. Favorite Movie You Watched: Well, I have to confess that I had to google "2012 movies" because I couldn't even remember which movies I'd seen in 2012.  But, after looking through the selection my favorite is The Hunger Games, because I loved the books and was just so excited for the movie.  I also really liked The 5 Year Engagement, because it made me laugh so much.

11. Favorite TV Show: This is a hard one, because I love a lot of TV shows.  Probably my favorite this year was Revenge.  It always keeps me guessing and eager to see what's going to happen next.
10.  Favorite Restaurant: Another hard one!  I like a lot of local places, but as far as chains go, my favorite right now is P.F. Changs.

9. Favorite New Thing You Tried: Becoming a seller on TPT.  I've enjoyed TeachersPayTeachers as a resource for a while, but I just started selling in October, and I am so grateful and surprised at how well things have gone so far!

8. Favorite Gift You Got: My favorite gift this year is definitely my iPhone.  I love feeling like I have everything I need in one place.  So much easier when I'm going on a trip and I don't have to figure out mapping directions, bringing music, and remembering my camera.  Just grab my phone and go! 

7. Favorite Thing You Pinned: I LOVE pinterest, so I had lots of choices here.  I think this globe, and the others from this site are super cool, and I would love to make something like that someday.  
6. Favorite Blog Post: I am pretty new to blogging.  (I've had a classroom blog for a few years, but it's just to share news and pictures with my students' families.)  So, I don't have many choices.  I guess my Freebielicious Linky Party post is my favorite, because it brought so many visitors to my blog and helped me gain some new readers.

5. Best accomplishment: Finishing graduate school!!! I am so happy to have my masters in Early Childhood Special Education and be able to focus my efforts on teaching without the distractions of grad school assignments.
At Graduation.  Go Tar Heels!
4. Favorite picture: One of my student's dads took this picture at Field Day in June and I just love it.  It was a really chilly day (especially for North Carolina in June) and my students were sharing this towel and walking together as we left the field.  I had looped with my class to first grade, and seeing the love and friendship they had for one another after 2 years together just melted my heart and made every tough day worth it.  

3. Favorite memory: Meeting my new little niece for the first time in May.  Isn't she the sweetest girl?

2. Goal for 2013: Increase the distance I can run and do it on a more regular basis.  

1. One Little Word: Joyful.  I want to find joy in the little things, in ordinary places.  I want my joy to be contagious, for it to be shared with my friends, family, students...everyone I meet.
