13 in 13

What a fun little linky party is this!

I've found some new blogs and learned new things about some favorite bloggers. Come along and join the fun with Miss Kindergarten and Teeny Tiny Teacher as we close 2013 in blogging style. Here're my 13 favorites for 2013.

13. Favorite article of clothing 
Although I probably should not admit this, I live to come home and put on my mumuu. Mine are not stylish, just plain shabby COMFORTABLE. As I sit typing this blog post, I am wearing.... yep, you guessed it... my mumuu!

12. Favorite movie you watched

LOL! It's not so much a single movie that is my favorite but a production company that makes REALLY BAD parody movies that my family and I watch on Netflix. The Asylum creates terrible (laughable) movies that we can't help watching. Among them: Invasion of the Pod People, Transmorphers, Megashark versus Giant Octopus, and the infamous Sharknado. Just give us some popcorn and Coke and we have an evening's worth of entertainment... and I'm not talking about the movie.

11. Favorite TV series

10. Favorite restaurant: Steak 'n Shake... love those fries!

9. Favorite new thing you tried 

I brought into my home a new kitten. I named her Pansy Lu, but she prefers Lulie, and DaisyMae (my incorrigible, elderly queen cat) prefers Lulie gone.

8. Favorite gift you got 
My brand new bathroom!

7. Favorite thing you pinned 
Crockpot recipes

Follow Angela Ackley's board Recipes on Pinterest.

6. Favorite blog post 

100 Follower Giveaway... I felt like I was finally a part of the blogging world and what fun it was!

5. Best accomplishment 
Teaching sixth grade for 33 years!

4. Favorite picture
The moon over my  house on the last day of school before Christmas break. This was a breathtaking sight at 6:45am.

3. Favorite memory
This year's sixth grade class threw a surprise birthday party for me in October. They were so cute! The girls made cupcakes to match the colors of our room: purple, green, and turquoise. They tasted a LOT better than they looked. LOL!

2. Goal for 2014
I received a piano as a gift from a student's family when their grandmother was downsizing her home. I am a musician and every few years I teach myself to play a new instrument. I've been working on the piano since May of 2012 and can play fourth and fifth year material already. However, I stutter sometimes when I play. It is my goal to become a fluent player this coming year. I want to be able to play at a class/school mass as I play my guitar now.

1. One Little Word 

Happy New Year,
Happy Teaching,

  1. Love Steak n Shake! The crisco melt… yum.
    Your bathroom looks amazing.


  2. 33 years!!! Wow, that is quite the accomplishment.
    I do love Steak and Shake, but since we have an In & Out Burger now, its my new favorite!

    Happy holidays

  3. Thirty-three years! You are my hero! And you look so young in that guitar picture, I am jealous!
    I love that pic of your class working. They look so interested and involved. Fun!
    Wishing you a wonderful (and happy!) 2014...
