12 in 12 Linky

After the day I’ve had, I could use a little reflection…whew….so excited to link up, I’ve LOVED the ones I’ve read so far!

12. Favorite movie you’ve watched
One of the funniest I’ve seen of all time!  
11. Favorite TV Series: 

Hmmm…might be with Kristin on this one..I sure do love some real Housewives and anything that doesn’t require thinking. 
I also love Food Network and Bravo, not too much on whole series…I tend not finish them 🙁
10. Favorite Restaurant: 
Madison’s – a local Italian place
I could eat Italian food EVERYDAY for every meal…not joking. 
9. Favorite New Thing You’ve Tried: 
I could go with the cliche….blogging, which I started this year but I’m going to go with more general and say Awesome computer things like: 
All sorts of computer things I’m learning and more and more everyday- I love how they integrate into classrooms and how it is improving education. 
8. Favorite Gift You’ve Received: 
I would probably have to go with my engagement ring!  I’m so excited to marry my best friend in just a little over 7 months!!
Gadget: my new Iphone – it has already saved me tons with all the apps I look at to get coupons when shopping….who knew?!  It’s pretty cool too!
7. Favorite thing you’ve pinned
Can I just pin my whole “Canvas DIY Board”  I am so into painting and love rainbows and glitter, I’ve had so much absolute fun creating this year!!!!
These are such bad photos but I plan on doing an artwork update soon (yes there is more…I’m crazy)
Check out my board for more inspiration!

this one was for my awesome cooperating teacher!           Some of the squares sparkle on there! 
the date thing all over Pinterest!

New last name…soon anyway!!
Betcha can’t guess my wedding colors by now?! 🙂

This one has silver Bible quotes around the outside, I love this one!!!
6. Favorite Blog Post
It took forever to make but was so worth it to share with students and parents plus I have gotten the best feedback for it! 
Over 75+ experiments for FREE!! 
5. Favorite Accomplishment: 
 1. Getting an article published with a professor!  That was HUGE!
2. Presenting in D.C. with another professor….like a business trip but for school and getting to meet educators from all around the world!!!
My professor had friends in D.C. so we got to see some AMAZING sights, it was definitely an unbelievable experience.
3. going to Denmark, studying their schools that was pretty cool too!!!
4. oh ya….and graduating that was in there too!
4. Favorite Picture:

I didn’t do anything like parasailing this year, we did take color dust photos and I love so many of them! Here are two!  It captures us….so quirky and color
3. Favorite Memory
Well…I would say getting engaged.  It wasn’t some crazy planned picture perfect moment, but the entire day was so unforgettable and even thinking about it I’m filled with so much happiness!  
2. Goal for 2013: 
Keep up with blogging for one, I’m usually one that starts and doesn’t finish tasks so I want to make sure to keep this up!
Try not to get so overwhelmed…I’m so type A it isn’t even funny. I need to have so many plans and control of EVERYTHING..sadly.  I just need to realize some things will take time and are in God’s hands.  
There will be waiting and turmoil this year I’m sure, but I’m getting married and I know everything will work out the way it is suppose to!!
1. One little word: 
Faith that everything will work out in little things and big things!  
Trying to live this everyday!!
There’s mine!  What an awesome linky!
