12 in '12 Linky

I love the Teeny Tiny Teacher, SERIOUSLY - her blog cracks me up!  Well she & Miss Kindergarten are hosting a linky:

So my 12:

12. Favorite movie:
The Hunger Games or Breaking Dawn Part 2 - loved the books of both & the movies were good too.  For a laugh, check out my personal blog post about my skittish movie habits!

11. Favorite TV show:
I am a GLEEk!!  They did Grease too, so excited *SPOILER* except that they lost Sectionals, WHAT?!?!?!

10. Favorite Restaurant:
Hmm, don't eat out much.  But, when I me some Chipotle!
9. Favorite new thing I tried:
MacBook, Apple TV, & iPad in my classroom - I'm officially an OS/Apple person, much to the dismay of my PC/Network Engineer father, who makes a living networking Windows {sorry Pops!}

8. Favorite gift:
Well, I have an iPad, but it's my district's.  So...I use my Kindle Fire for personal reading, love my eReader - my sister is so thoughtful, she knew I'd love it {too cheap to buy if for myself} so she & my brother-in-law surprised me with it BEST.GIFT.EVER!!
7. Favorite thing I've pinned:
Um, this is hard because I only pin things I love!  I think, I'll go with...Green Grinch Punch!  Haven't tried it yet, but hoping parent volunteers bring it on 12/20 for our Green Grinch Party on Grinch Day 2012!!

6. Favorite blog post:
Maybe this one - CAUGHT! Red-Hooded {makes me happy to be done with my Masters, reading it!}
Are You Celebrating Seuss? because Michelle actually commented on how I used her Seuss TpT unit {made my week, cheesy? Oh well!}!

5. Favorite accomplishment:
Finishing my Masters in Elementary Literacy!

4. Favorite picture:
Um, really?  I have this one, with a bee - blogged about it HERE.  It speaks for itself, I mean look how ridiculous I look - it did NOT make the book, even though my kids looked great!:

3. Favorite memory:
Going with my bestie to see Wicked - it was an AWESOME show & a great evening!

2. Goal for 2013:
Make/sell TpT unit - scared, but excited to see if I have something to contribute.

1. One little word: 
Blessed.  I am blessed to be a child of God.  I am blessed to be a child of 2 AMAZING parents, who still call me their child, even though I'm 32!  I am blessed with 2 wonderful siblings, who let me be Auntie to my 3 fantastic nephews/niece.  I am blessed to have teammates who respect my opinion, solicit it even {GASP!}, and share!  And, I am blessed to have friends that I LOVE spending time with, who get me, & choose me - despite my "excessive happiness" {as my brother told me I have, on Friday night at dinner}.

So time to link up - what's your 12 of 2012?
