12 in 12 and a Freebie - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

12 in 12 and a Freebie

I am jumping on the opportunity to celebrate 12 in 12 on 12-12-12 with Hadar and Kristin! LOVE those girlies!
My 12 favorite things! 

12. Favorite movie you watched:

I usually really dislike the movie version of my favorite books- not the case here. The movie people did a FABULOUS job. I.CAN'T.WAIT for the 2nd one.

11. Favorite TV series:

This is really the only "non-reality" show I watch. My reality show obsession is quite embarrassing, I know. 

10. Favorite restaurant:

Anywhere that serves sushi. I love it! Can't get enough of it. Eat so much I almost make myself sick every time. 

9. Favorite new thing you tried:

Teaching with iPads! I LOVE it.  My students LOVE it. Win-Win in my book. 

8. Favorite gift you got:

My husband and I gifted each other with a trip to Mexico for our fifth anniversary.  We never took a Honeymoon so this was an amazing experience for us.  Here we are in our private rooftop pool.

7. Favorite thing you pinned:

My playroom needs some major TLC. Pronto. There is always Christmas break, right?

6. Favorite blog post:

I LOVE looking back at this post and the memories made that night!

5. Best accomplishment:

Not because I have made tons of money, but because I am proud of myself for putting myself out there. Creating my own units and products has made me such a better teacher.

4. Favorite picture:

We lucked out with some gorgeous Fall leaves for our holiday pictures!

3. Favorite memory:

Anything involving my two darlings, is my favorite memory.  

2. Goal for 2013:

To be the best mommy I can possibly be to these two.

1. One Little Word:

I made my "One Little Word" a BIG word so I can stress how much I want to improve in this area. Patience with those around me and with waiting for things in life.  Yep- if I can work this out- a lot of other things will fall into place.

My 12 freebie  is my Number Detectives handout.  We used it today to analyze the number 12, but I leave it blank so you can use it over and over and over again!  Enjoy!

  3. Your sweet peas are beautiful! ;) Thanks so much for sharing your resources with us all! ;) I'm excited to start my journey in that direction as well! ;) I'm also super stoked that I won something on your giveaway last night! :) Hooray for me! :) Stop on by my blog anytime! :)

  4. Sushi...yum!! Now we need to get together for sushi :) Love it!

  5. *LOVE* your reasoning for being excited about opening your TPT shop! It takes a lot of courage to "put yourself out there"! Your family picture is beautiful! We don't get four seasons in Texas, lol! It's either summer or winter and usually both in the same day or week! I'm always a little envious of beautiful fall pics!

    Thanks for sharing! It's always fun visiting your blog! Just started following on FB too! =)

  8. I loved the Hunger Games movie too. I can't believe we have almost a year before the second one comes out. I've read all three books twice. I took my little sister (she's 13) to see the first movie with me, and we had a great time. I love having something to share with her!

    Also, I LOVE sushi. I wish I had more people to go get sushi with, because there are a TON of awesome sushi places here in Louisville. But my best sushi buddy is pregnant and she doesn't want to eat it while she's pregnant, so I haven't had any in a few months. Your picture made me want to go get some all by myself!

  10. I do not understand what retirement is and I truly would lean toward simply purchasing a bike yet she is my mother, so I oblige it. Mother puts the $100 into the super ease Vanguard S&P 500 Index asset and they waive the base for her since she offers to prepare them a few treats. Check Cashing

  11. Hello, I have browsed most of your posts. This post is probably where I got the most useful information for my research. Thanks for posting, maybe we can see more on this. Are you aware of any other websites on this subject.
