12 in 12

Hey yall! Happy 12-12-12!
I'm linking up with Hadar and Kristin for their 12 in 12 party. I'm all about parties, so why not?
Here are my top 12 for 2012
12. Favorite Movie
Most definitely, hands down, The Hunger Games. I was so excited that I saw it in the theaters 3 times, and have since watched it twice on DVD. Yeah...its that good :) Can't wait for the next one!
11. Favorite TV Show
Parenthood is my absolute favorite show. It makes me cry every. single. week. I love how real all the characters are, and it reminds me of my big, crazy family.
FYI I'm watching it now and crying as we speak...
10. Favorite Restaurant
This one's new for me...Buca de Beppo! We first tried it when we were living in Atlanta and absolutely loved it! Then they opened one here in Augusta....score! I had my hubby's surprise 30th birthday party there and it was just as good as the one in Atlanta.
9. Favorite New Thing I Tried
Well, this one's easy! My favorite thing I tried in 2012 was starting this blog. I started in the beginning of the year, sometime in January, and it has been such a journey! I have met some sweet ladies, been so inspired by so many amazing bloggers, and have just loved getting a chance to have a voice. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being awesome followers!
8. Favorite Gift I Received
The hubs got me a Pandora bracelet for our 4th anniversary and it was a complete surprise! It's pretty hard for him to surprise me, because I am such a control freak a little direct and usually tell him exactly what I want. But this one he got all on his own :) I only have a few charms for it, but there are many more on my list.
Not my actual bracelet
7. Favorite Thing I Pinned
Pinned Image
Hands down, my most favorite pin was the chevron wall. Why? Well, because it inspired me to create my very own chevron wall! With the help of my mom, 2 gallons of paint, and about 5 hours, we got it done...and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my chevron wall!!!
6. Favorite Blog Post
I would have to say my Favorite Fonts Linky post. It was my first linky party and I thought it was a smashing success. I was so nervous about not getting anyone to link up. But then people did and I had such a fun time reading everyone's posts! Not too mention all the awesome new fonts I found :)
5. Favorite Accomplishment
This one's easy....getting my first big TPT check! I even took a picture of it, although I never showed anyone. TPT also got me featured in the local paper, which was kind of cool. It has been such a blessing to me, and I am so thankful for each and every purchase.
4. Favorite Picture
So my hubby turned the big 3-0 this year and I threw him a little surprise party {wow, it feels like I just typed that..ha!). Well, my hubs is quite the funny man. He is always cracking jokes and keeps everyone in stiches. He most certainly does not take himself too seriously, which is one of my most favorite things about him. I wanted to get him one of those face cakes {you know, a cake with a face on it...}so I pulled up a shot I took of him when we were in Gatlinburg over the summer at some silly store. Disclaimer: my husband does not  have a mullet!
I present to you....the face cake!
3. Favorite Memory
This year, my hubby and I moved into our very first home, one that is all ours. The whole experience of moving into our first real home is definitely my favorite memory from the year. Here is our little house all decorated for Christmas.
2. Goal for 2013
My goal for the new year is to stop procrastinating so much! I have always been an awful procrastinator, but it has really bitten me in the butt a few times this year. Recently, it was my tags for my car. I completely blanked on paying the taxes last month, and now I'm driving around with expired tags....yikes! That was an awful the tag office tomorrow!
1. One Little Word
Patience. I am definitely going to focus on having more patience in 2013. My littles really know how to push me to my limits this year, so I feel like I'm constantly on edge. Hate that feeling! I will focus on being more patient and not hitting that point as quickly.
Go link up, friends!
