I'm more than fashionably late for this party..

I stepped away from bloggy land for a few days. I went to visit my sister, her family, and the rest of my family. I didn't take my laptop because I didn't plan on staying as long as I did. But I'm back! And I have a lot of blogging to catch up on, AND a party to attend!

Hadar & Kristin have teamed up to have an 11 in 11 linky party.

They have provided some suggestions for 11 things for your to answer. I plan to take their suggestions, unless I absolutely cannot decide on an answer. Then I might come up with my own! :) 

11. Favorite movie you watched:
   - Well, this has to be MOVIES. Never have I ever been in to Harry Potter. After my boyfriend made me watch ABC Family Harry Potter weekend several times & flips the channel at every commercial so I miss some parts, I felt it necessary to buy & watch all movies. I actually really like them. (Shocked myself with that one)

10. Favorite TV series:
    - Gossip Girl. I know, I know, aren't I a little old for this show? I can't help it. I have every season on DVD and it's my absolute favorite. I've also taking a liking to the Walking Dead. Zombie apocalypse anyone? 

9. Favorite restaurant:
   - I don't know if I have a favorite restaurant. My favorite local restaurant is called Stingray Sushi. Love. Their. Sushi. If you ever find yourself at the Delaware beaches & you love sushi, you must go.

8. Favorite new thing you tried:
   - Selling items on TpT and TN. I still feel like I have a long way to go, but I'm glad I started this adventure. It is fun creating items for my own classroom & sharing them with others. I also love taking requests and making things people are specifically looking for!

7. Favorite gift you got:
   - I love gifts. I love surprises. I love giving gifts. My boyfriend hands down gave me the best Christmas present & surprise this year. I wasn't expecting it. No it wasn't an engagement ring, but it's a lovely accessory for my arm...can you guess?

6. Favorite thing you pinned:
   - Okay. Really. Do ya'll honestly expect me to answer this one? I love everything I pin. I can't honestly choose just one thing. I just recently posted about multiple items I attempted off of pinterest. You can check that out here.

5. Favorite blog post:
   - This is a tricky one too. But I do have to say, I loved sharing how I organize ideas for themes. I think it's a great system and everyone should do this! You can check the post for that out here.

Um. Hopefully no one noticed my (clean) laundry in the background of this picture before I edited! How embarrassing! Embarrassing blog moment of 2011!

4. Best accomplishment:
   - I was proud of myself for completing my first year of teaching in June. I was also proud of myself for applying and getting accepted into the Masters program I wanted! 

3. Favorite picture:
   - I don't think I can answer this one. At least not yet. My boyfriend hates having his picture taken so I honestly don't think we've had one since last Christmas. I always love our annual sister Christmas pic in front of the tree, however, my camera battery was dead so I have to wait and get the picture from someone else! 

2. Favorite memory:
   - My sister announcing that she is pregnant with baby #2! She is going to be the 10th girl in the family, due in April! 
The first ultrasound picture!

1. Goal for 2012: 
  - General life goals: go to the gym at least 3x a week & DRINK.MORE.WATER. Don't we all have this goal? I'm absolutely horrible. 

  - Blogging goals: more freebies & comment more on other blogs!

Head over to Miss Kindergarten or Teeny Tiny Teacher to link up to the party! I'm sorry I'm so late. Hopefully they will still let me in! :)

P.S. Don't forget that the 50% off sale at my Teacher's Notebook store ends tomorrow! (Friday)

OMG I am addicted to Walking Dead! haha

I'm going to have to check out this Walking Dead - you're not the only one to put it in your 11.

Aw, Jennifer, I totally didn't call that ending with Sophia! I was soooo stunned and upset!

Kristin said...

Thanks for linking up, Erin, and answering my shout out! :)
I will have to check out The Walking Dead. I've never even heard of it. And you're not too old to watch Gossip Girl if I still watch The Real World. Wait, did I say that out loud? :)
I need to drink more water, too. But wine tastes better.

Erin, you're lucky you have BBFF status because we almost shut the door on you!! haha jk of course! Thanks for linking up! And is anyone guessing what you got??! I think it's a watch, but it might be a bracelet. The suspense is killing me!! haah love you girl!

Erin Lukas said...

hahah NO! no one was guessing!! It's a purse that I have been wanting for YEARS but would never spend the money on myself. I'm in love. (with him & the bag)

Kristin, I agree. Wine does taste much better than water! haha red or white?

And I'm glad to see that there are numerous teachers into zombies?! haha I wasn't expecting too many people to know of the show The Walking Dead!

I have no gift for organizing - love your binder but just won't happen with me. More water is a big plus here too. I'm you newest follower from the linky party. Hope you can visit me.
