Giveaway & 11 in 11

Courtney at Swimming into Second is giving away a $25 gift card to TpT because she has reached 400 followers!  The giveaway ends on Sunday, January 1st, so head over there and enter.fast!

Now I'm joining in the fun by joining Hadar and Kristin's 11 in 11 linky party.

11.  Favorite movie you watched
I don't very often see new movies, and my kids definitely drive my movie choices.  So my pick has to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. 

10.  Favorite TV series
Definitely The Big Bang Theory.  

9.  Favorite restaurant
Hmmm.  I'm all about food so this is a tough one.  A local haunt called CJ's Bar & Grill.

8.  Favorite new thing you've tried
Blogging and opening a Teacher's Notebook shop.  It's really putting yourself out there in a vulnerable kind of way.

7.  Favorite gift you received
My nook tablet.  

6.  Favorite thing you pinned
This is from my cooking pin board.  It is a recipe for a pie that this woman asked people to make in honor of her deceased husband Mikey.  It was his favorite.  

5.  Favorite blog post
Of mine?!?  Yikes!  Could I just pick someone else's?  No, then I pass.  You heard me.  PASS!

4.  Favorite accomplishment
Adopting my two beautiful daughters.  People always tell me (and my husband) that they are so lucky to have us, but we know the truth...we are lucky to have them, even on the days when we don't feel too lucky!

3.  Favorite picture
This is my sharpei baby lying on the top back of the couch.  She learned to do this from our little puggle who is 1/3 of the weight.  The big dummy thinks she is still little and can do this.  Hubs says it's ruining the couch.  Still cracks me up!  

2.  Favorite memory
The weekend my husband and I got engaged.  We were staying at a dive that the local high school kids obviously partied at (unbeknownst to me) and where the local homeless found shelter when the temperature dipped.  Also, where the cleaning ladies doubled as ladies of the evening in empty rooms, from the looks of them.  I booked this lovely abode and thought I'd hit the jackpot because it was cheap AND had a pool.  When we saw the pool we agreed to not swim in it without haz-mat suits.  Euwww!  But what a memory!

1.  Goal for 2012
Eat healthier, be healthier.  Tell and show people I love them more.

So that's my 11 in 11.  Now go link up to the party people.

    Once again, I just love your dog. I am a sucker. And who cares about the couch?
