8. Favorite new thing you tried.
Having a teaching blog. I've had a personal blog for 5 years or so, but once I found teaching blogs I knew I had to do it! I've had so much fun and met so many AMAZING teachers. Y'all have the best ideas ever!
7. Favorite Gift Your Received
Hmmmm. This year...that is hard. I have a wonderful husband/family. The most recent gift I got for Christmas that I am oh so excited about are these frames from Poppy Tree Frames
My mom got me 3 and it's a small addiction. I need more! Aren't they cute? They come in all of these colors? I got them in sweet pea, timber wolf, and pink parfait. I gotta get more!
6. Favorite Thing You Pinned
Uh...I'm addicted to Pinterest. I love it!!!! I love everything I've pinned. The one I have referred to the most lately is this picture (hence the frames I got for Christmas). I want this exact wall in our new house!
5. Favorite Blog Post
Probably the post where I introduce Holly Bloggy Christmas. How much fun was that?
4. Favorite Accomplishment
I think opening my Teachers Notebook store. I've been creating things for years for my classroom but never posted anything for sale. I'm a little slow because I've had to re-do things to make sure I'm not breaking any copyright laws!
3. Favorite Picture
2. Favorite Memory
Hmmm. I have lots but this is one I will never forget. I worked so hard to plan the PERFECT birthday for my daughter. I really enjoy doing it. It is stressful but worth it in the end. I got the cutest cupcakes made for Lilly to take to her class at daycare. Well, my sweet husband let her carry them in. She was 2. Picture a 2 year old carrying her big box of cupcakes in to class, carrying the box sideways. He texted me and told me that he wasn't sure what they would look like but he let her carry them in. I swear I almost had a panic attack. I texted her teacher and asked her if they looked bad. She texted me the picture and said "I'll let you be the judge".
1. Goal for 2012
Personal: Get fit/lose weight (yeah...I say that every year, but this is the year), Be a better Christian (go to church more consistently, be kinder to others, give more), Be a better mom and wife
School: Create more units and implement them in the classroom. Try to use less worksheets and more fun activities.
