My 12 in '12 and a boo-boo

Miss Kindergarten and Teeny Tiny are hosting a great linky party that I had to join! I missed their 11 in '11 party last year, but what a fun way to end out the year.

12. Favorite movie you watched:
The Hunger Games. I don't watch many movies anyway (actually, this may have even been the only one I saw in theaters this year), but this one I couldn't wait to see. I LOVED the books, and the movie was pretty impressive as well. Can't wait until Catching Fire!

11. Favorite TV series:
Big Bang Theory. Always. Especially with Amy Farafowler (sp?).

Although I've also become a fan of Duck Dynasty. I can't help it. Si alone is worth watching it. I laugh so hard every time I catch it!

10. Favorite restaurant:
I still really like Bonefish Grill, but a newer love of mine is Mimi's Cafe for breakfast! Best. Breakfast. Ever.

Locally, I still crave Gibson's Grill for their Irish Nachos. But I can't eat them this week. Maybe after the new year when I'm further along on this South Beach Diet. (Yes, my hubby and I are nuts and doing the diet during Christmas)

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Spaghetti. I know I'm a complete weirdo, but I used to HATE tomato anything (still not a big fan). While I was pregnant, I started eating noodles with LIGHT sauce on them, and now I love it. Before I would just do noodles with butter.

Oh, and TpT. Love it!

8. Favorite gift you got:
I'm honestly having trouble even remembering what I got for Christmas last year. It was all a BIG blur. I guess I could say my favorite gift was Keagan, but I feel like that's too cliche. Ooh, I remember getting a gift certificate for a much needed pedicure. It was so relaxing!

7. Favorite thing you pinned:
Wonderful Christmas countdown!
I had forgotten about this from Kirsty Wiseman's photography blog, but I may have to make one now to start. So cute and simple. I love simple. Unfortunately the link just goes to her blog and not the specific post.

6. Favorite blog post:
Probably the most helpful blog post I have so far is the one I did on context clues here. Remember Manana Iguana?

5. Best accomplishment:
Becoming a mommy. (Well, technically that was 2011, but the very end) I love this little boy so much!

4. Favorite picture:

I just love this one! His blue eyes are so pretty!

3. Favorite memory:
There have been so many great memories, but I think my favorite might be when Keagan first started to give kisses. Now he'll come over, especially if I'm lying on the floor, and give me a big wet kiss (or 3) right on the cheek. Such a sweetie!

2. Goal for 2013:
Well, this is my goal for the end of this year, but to lose the rest of my pregnancy weight and keep it off (unless I get pregnant again).

1. One Little Word:
organization - I need some more of it in my life.

Oh, and about that boo-boo? I've made it 28 years without ever getting a black eye, but today I think I broke that record. I was getting out of the car this morning and caught the corner of the door with my eye. Fortunately it missed my actual eye, but it was bleeding and swelling earlier. I got an ice pack from the nurse and laid down in the clinic until I calmed down (I got nauseous when I saw my eye), so it was a good thing no students were there yet. It's okay now, but I have a big headache. Plus vain me is thinking how crappy it's going to look in Keagan's birthday pics this weekend. Boo! Maybe it'll die down a lot though. Not too many people have noticed it since I cleaned it up.


  1. LOVE those pictures and congrats on being a mom! It's THE BEST! Your newest follower,
