Is this the last??

OK, y'all....this may very well be my last post for 2011, so I'm glad they posted today so I could join in on the fun!! 
But first, I have to tell you....not only is my daughter STILL sick, but now she has an ear infection! She has NEVER been sick nor has she EVER had an ear infection. And she gets them BOTH at once...and the day before I go into the hospital to have Brooklynn. Talk about feeling bad about leaving her! :( Thankfully, my mom is now here, and I know she'll be in good hands (not only because she's MY awesome mom, but because she's a nurse). 

Here I was so worried that over break, I'd have nothing to blog I'm so glad I was wrong...there are TWO  more linkies I want to link up to...first one is from Mor over at A Teacher's Treasure. 
New Year Resolutions:


1. to lose all the baby weight. 

2. get better organized...ok, to get MY FAMILY more

3. stop stressing about the small stuff - but that's what I OCD sometimes takes over

4. Continue blogging & blog hopping!

5. Make a family night once a week - no TV!!


1. Get better I mean I AM organized,but I want to rethink how I want it....

2. Maybe write a children's book?? I have actually written one, but now I don't know where to go with it....

3. Get better at paperwork...I HATE HATE HATE it!!

4. maybe start working on making my own units (for TpT)??

5. Keep blog stalking!!! HA! It's the BEST professional development!

What are your resolutions?!?

❤ Link Up 

This next one....Kristin told me that HAD to do, ok, here I go! :)

11. Favorite movie you watched
Ok, those of you with small children at home and NO family around to help watch, know that this is NOT the easiest thing to do. And quite honestly, I really don't remember all the movies I've seen this year....and especially since most have them have been on DVD and I don't know which year they actually came out... 

10. Favorite TV series
Ok, I have a few favorites....most of which are in their LAST season!! ahhh!!!
I actually met the WHOLE cast one year up in about star struck!

My husband used to hate this show, but that was because of her lipstick - ha!! 

I'm not sure why, but I'm kind of addicted to this show - and my husband will actually sit and watch it with me too! hehehe (he'd kill me if he knew I told you!)


I seriously like this show...First off, I followed Lauren Graham over from Gilmore Girls...but I really think  that EVERYONE can relate to this show, some how!

9. Favorite restaurant
Restaurant?? Ok, again, with a 2 year old, we RARELY ever go out - it's SOOOO not worth our But one of my FAVE places is Long Doggers...and there's one on the beach that I like to visit on our weekly beach trips in the summer :)

8. Favorite new thing you tried
I will have to say Blogging....I gave it a try in September, and I am UH. DICT. TED!!! lol. I think I have grown so much professionally because of all y'all, but I've also gained a lot more new friends :)

Favorite gift you received

This has yet to come...but she should be here by tomorrow!! Little baby Brooklynn will be my favorite gift!

6. Favorite thing you pinned
OMGosh....I'm going to have to say my "Oh My Crafts" board because it's totally inspired me to get back in to my crafty ways :)

Favorite blog post

Hmmm....I would have to say any post that is a Linky Party...there have been Foldables, Mentor Writing,  Read Alouds, and then just all the *Fun* linkies, like Farley's Currently parties, the bag party. I love linkies becuase I get to see what everyone else does with the  same concept - PLUS I get to meet new bloggy friends.

Favorite accomplishment

Graduated with my masters in Elementary Reading!!!

3. Favorite picture

I have so many, but I'll just pick a few 
playing in snow in July!! My dad and my daughter :)

Autumn and me paddleboarding
Christmas day at the beach :)

2. Favorite memory
When I lived in West Virginia, one of my favorite memories was going to the drive in movie theater. I have told my husband this a bazillion times...and for mother's day this year, he found one in FL and he took me to one!!

1. Goal for 2012
In life:  To lose all this baby weight...
And to get more organized....I myself am very organized, but having my husband and daughter, there's a LOT of

In school:  I need to be better at paperwork - I DETEST paper work...and now with this RTI thing...ugh. Don't get me started...

All right.  So that's my 11 in 2011.  Go on over and Link UP!!! Please! :) I love reading all y'alls links :)

This may very well be my last post for the year....I may be headed to the hospital tonight - woohoo!!! We will finally get to meet our baby girl Brooklynn... I promise when things calm down, I will be sure to share :) I may be around tonight, as I'll be hanging out being bored in the hospital....but do you know how excited I am to FINALLY get a full night's sleep?? lol

Happy 2012 my friends! It has been SO great meeting all of you this year and learning so much from each and every one of you!!!

I detest paperwork too! Luckily I do not have too much, but I have a decent amount for my SPED kiddos since I have the 6th LA inclusion class.
