I’m linking up with two fabulous bloggers to share my 12 in 12 list.
12. Favorite movie you watched:
I would love to tell you that I saw a million great movies, but I just can’t. We get a couple of Netflix movies every week. While I can remember liking many of them, as I sit back and try to remember all of the movies I watched, none really stand out as being memorable favorites.
11. Favorite TV series:
My top three favorite shows on t.v. right now are How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and The Big Bang Theory.
10. Favorite restaurant:
We don’t get out to eat much, but some of my favorite places are Red Robin, Spiros (a local pizza & pasta place), and Silver City (a local brewery & restaurant).
9. Favorite new thing you tried:
Blogging – I am not a big risk taker, so putting myself out there has been a way to push outside my comfort zone.
8. Favorite gift you got:
A necklace from my husband for Mother’s Day. The pendant is my daughter’s birthstone. When I knew I would be returning to teaching, this was my one request so I would always have a piece of her with me at school.
I don’t think I have a personal favorite blog post. The post that gets the most page views is a post I wrote about Guided Math & Math Workshop. Since writing that post, I have made a few changes to make it work in my classroom.
5. Best accomplishment:
Becoming a seller on Teachers Pay Teachers. We can’t all be the Deanna Jumps of the world, but I am happy to be setting goals each quarter and working to meet or exceed my own expectations.
4. Favorite picture:
We finally managed to get a picture with all three of us in it. My daughter does not like to have anything in her hair. She actually had a headband in for all of the pictures she had taken of her individually, but when it came time for the family pics, the headband was gone!
3. Favorite memory:
I am so blessed to have a little girl in my life. She is 21 months old and within the last year I have so many new memories: watching her learn to walk, celebrating her first birthday, watching her dance, listening to her talk, and so much more!
2. Goal for 2013:
In a dream world I would be able to get all of my schoolwork done during school hours. Until that happens, my goal is to use my time during school hours more efficiently and creatively so I don’t have to bring so much work home each night.

“If I don’t open every door, to see what lies within, I’ll miss an opportunity that might not come again. I stay busy day and night, through winter, fall, and spring. I crush my fear of missing out by doing EVERYTHING.”
Seraphina wants to do it all, and she does. Between soccer, karate, ballet, and French club, she isn’t going to miss out on anything! Or is she?
