12 in '12

I am linking up with Miss Kindergarten and A Teeny Tiny Teacher for their 12 in '12 linky.
12. Favorite movie you watched: Um, mo-vie? I'm unfamiliar with this. I think that the only new movie I watched this year was Magic Mike. I think... Is it sad that I had to Google popular movies of 2012 to realize that I also saw Rock of Ages and The Lorax (on DVD)?

11. Favorite TV series: The Office. Kind of sad to see it go, but it had a good run. Guess I'll have time next year to find a new series.

10. Favorite restaurant: We had a lovely little place called the Bluebird Cafe open in our town. Local ingredients. Enough said.

9. Favorite new thing you tried: Blogging, I guess! I also got a Cricut, and that's a lot of fun, too!

8. Favorite gift you got: My past, present, and future diamond band for our tenth anniversary!

7. Favorite thing you pinned: I have no clue. Everything I pin has the potential to change my life ;)
This one's pretty good:
6. Favorite blog post: My most popular one is {this one} about my milk crate seats. I really enjoyed writing {this one} about our candy elections. Even though a candy bar elections isn't my original idea, I really think that my teaching partner and I took it up a notch.

5. Best accomplishment: Successfully starting the school year even though everything seemed stacked against me.

4. Favorite picture: I take a lot of pictures, so it's very hard to choose just one. This one is special because it's a side-by-side of my daughter and me when we were in first grade.
3. Favorite memory: This same daughter caught the bouquet at my husband's cousin's wedding, and her reaction is something that I'll never forget!
2. Goal for 2013: To have more energy to do the things that I want to do. And I need to work on allowing myself to make mistakes this school year. It's a new situation, and no one else is expecting perfection.

1. One Little Word: Relax.
