12 in '12

Miss Kindergarten and Teeny Tiny Teacher are hosting a fun linky party. We are supposed to tell you about 12 of our favorite things during the past year.

12. Favorite movie you watched:
True confession - I don't go to the movies much. During 2012, I saw Hunger Games and Skyfall. I loved the Hunger Games trilogy, but the movie? Not my vision of the book. As for "Skyfall," it was good, but Sean Connery will always be James Bond to me.

11. Favorite TV series:
Only one? That's tough. I don't know if I can pick between Castle, Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Project Runway, and Top Chef.

10. Favorite restaurant:
There are so many I like! I guess I will say P.F. Chang's. I always ask to go there for my birthday.

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
We finally got  a Trader Joes here and I tried the Speculoos Cookie Butter. Oh my heaven. Run and get you some!

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
This sideboard. Someday, I am doing the same thing to mine. Love it so much!

6. Favorite blog post:
This one about the Kray Kray in Hawaii. So much fun!

5. Best Accomplishment:
Changing jobs. Even though I loved teaching gifted students, I just couldn't deal with traveling between two schools.

4. Favorite picture:
This one, because it reminds me of our fabulous trip to Hawaii. This was taken from the balcony of our hotel room in Waikiki.

3. Favorite memory:
During our Hawaii trip, we took a tour to the top of Mauna Kea on the big island of Hawaii. With the wind chill, it was way below zero degrees at the summit. Mauna Kea is almost 14,000 feet above sea level. I took this picture there at sunset.

2. Goal for 2012:
Decide if I am really going to retire or not.

1. One Little Word:
Positive. It's been my word for three years, and I still haven't mastered it.

Make sure you check out all the other posts in the linky!


  1. We got a Trader Joe's here too, and I love it!!! Thankfully their salads are delicious. It's helping balance out all the cookie butter I'm eating.
