Better Late Than Never

Holy Moly.

I am fashionably late to the 11 in 11 Linky Party! I've been meaning to do it, but ya know, I've been busy with things such as:

Watching Shameless.
Snuggin' solo on the couch.
Enjoying the silence that I've missed SO much.
Laundry [siiiike].
Doing school work [double sike].

So, without further ado, I bring you...

11. Favorite Movie You've Watched:

I love movies. I meant to see The Help, but never got around to it. By never got around to it, I mean that the BF refused to go see it with me, and I'm far too socially awkward to go to a movie alone. Here's a few of my faves that I saw in theatres this year! [I have a feeling I'm going to break rules, because I can't pick just ONE of anything.] Rio, Crazy Stupid Love, & Hall Pass!

10. Favorite TV Series

Again, I'm going to cheat. I'm newly obsessed with Homeland. Claire Danes is 100 kids of crazy and brilliant in this show. And this show disturbs me to my core. Good stuff. And c'mon, who doesn't love Parenthood! If you don't watch it, you need to! You all probably knew this, but Maura Tierney was suppose to play Sarah, which is now played by my girl Lauren Graham. I LOVE her, and I can't imagine anyone else playing Sarah! And I couldn't, in good conscience, leave out HIMYM!

9. Favorite Restaurant

I'm not big on fine dining, so I'm going to go with this. Yum. Grottos!

8. Favorite New Thing You've Tried

Pinterest! No explanation necessary. I would have picked blogging, but that would have been a fib. When I was in middle school I had a blog [whuddup Xanga] which was used as an outlet for my teenage angst. 

7. Favorite Gift

All my Christmas gifts this year were practical, which was exactly what I needed. Except for Kenny Chesney tickets for next summer. I've seen Kenny live twice, but had to miss my third time last summer due to the wedding which will be mentioned below!

6. Favorite Thing You Pinned

I've pinned so many useful, educational things, but I love this. Because it is my life.

5. Favorite Blog Post

This one is hard. I haven't been blogging long enough to have a favorite of my own. So, I'm choosing every post from this girl. I feel that we have a similar outlook on things.--> People I Want to Punch in the Face

4. Best Accomplishment

Completing my first year as a third grade teacher. [Before that, I taught a "special", so I didn't have classes of my own.] Every day as a teacher is filled with stress, new programs, crazy kids, etc. But when my little ducklings left my room for the last time on June 17, 2011, I breathed a sigh of relief, and knew that I survived and excelled in something that many people couldn't.

3. Favorite Picture

From my best friends wedding, which was in August. I was MOH, & it made for a fun summer, which included the Bridal Shower [beatles themed], bachelorette party [which kicked off in the afternoon when we went to see the final HP!], and the wedding in August! This is a proof because I still haven't gotten around to ordering pictures from the website yet!

2. Favorite Memory

Spring Break. It was the BF & I's first vaca together. Nothing special, just went to OCMD for a few days. But it was a first. Not our last though, we're going to Jamaica for Spring Break '12!

1. Goal for 2012

To be happy. Lately, especially in December, I've let a ton of school related things get to me. I just want to enjoy the rest of the school year with my little monsters!

If I'm not the last one to link up, visit Kristen or Hader & do it!


  1. I laughed so hard when I saw the Xanga!!! I completely forgot about that. I totally had one my Junior year of high school. Man I feel old. I would love to see what I wrote on that thing.

  2. You crack me up! I love funny blog authors! That has been my list of things to do and there is a HUGE list of things I really NEED to be doing but dont't want to! I am your newest follower and would love for you to come check out my blog! You can read about the Potty Police!
