11 in 11

I'm linking up with A Teeny Tiny Teacher for the 11 in 11 linky party, because I can't get enough of sitting on my couch and blog-stalking. In my defense, I have been getting a lot of wedding planning done this week... and some of it I actually got dressed for. It has been WAY too long since I've given this 'lil blog the attention it deserves and this is WAY too fun!




 
11. Favorite movie

It would have to be The Help. It seems to be the thing to turn books into movies and usually the directors really mess them up. I think The Help was done fabulously. It had me laughing and crying and wanting to read the book all over again!


10. Favorite TV Series

This would have to be The Biggest Loser. We had to DVR every episode this past season and probably the upcoming season because that's when our small group meets, but we can't get it started fast enough on Wednesdays to catch up. It's not the same without Jillian but I have the biggest crush on Dolvett, so it's okay. If only I was that motivated to get up off my butt!


Rest assured, I also still LOVE Real Housewives of NJ and Teen Mom 1 & 2. Oh! And Sister Wives and All-American Muslim - seriously.. LOVE those shows! Is this too much TV?? Do I have a problem?? Don't answer that.

 9. Favorite restaurant

It's a tie.. I LOVE Bisuteki, a Japanese hibachi place. SO. GOOD. I also LOVE Mexico Lindo. They have a mariachi band on Wednesday nights and the food is authentic and delicious.

8. Favorite new thing you tried

I started going to a new church this year and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was basically given the choice as a child to make my own decisions regarding my religion and I have finally found what feels like home. Through this church, I have taken two courses about Christianity, as well as our pre-marriage course. We have also met some incredible friends here and have really enjoyed exploring our faith with friends who have similar morals. We have also decided to get married here in April and it is my favorite thing about our wedding.

7. Favorite gift you received

I feel so spoiled because all of my favorite things have been gifts but this is one of my newest favorites.  :)


My cousin/MOH (above in the sombrero) got it for me for my birthday to use on my wedding day (which is four months from today! ahhh!) and I just couldn't stop looking at it!

6. Favorite thing you pinned

Now if I went through this, I would be here for another two days. It's bad enough that I am not being productive what-so-ever today or yesterday so I'm just going to include my link and you can decide!   Follow me!

5. Favorite blog post

My blog is not super new but it has been super neglected. I had so many great things drafted but I'm not sure you want to read about Halloween activities in January. I'm going to go with my most popular post... Grab 'yo bags! I'm also sooo nosy & loved seeing what was in everyone's bags!

4. Favorite accomplishments

Earning 4.0's in my two grad classes this semester. Maintaining two classes while teaching at an extended day school and planning a wedding is enough to kill someone. It was almost me so if I saw anything lower than a 4.0 when I checked my grades, I was going to lose my mind!

3. Favorite picture

Another tie.. my BFF's from college at KW's wedding.. Fab4 is still going strong!



My crazy, sweet, hilarious niece!


I am borderline papparazzi with this girl and we were out to eat when she said, "Hey, Auntie! Take a picture of this!" and then proceeded to make the following face.


Oh, I could go on for days!

2. Favorite memory

Mr. P and I bought our first house last year and I have really loved making memories together in our new home. We have lived here for about a year and a half now and I love everything from the home improvement projects, decorating for holidays, and hosting parties, to having dinner together and talking about our day. I love coming home and I am looking forward to many more years together in our house!

1. Goal for 2012

Stay tuned for my next post when I link up with Mrs. Zrihen at A Teacher's Treasure for her 2012 Resolutions linky party!

  1. Your niece is adorable and I am totally there with you! I am in love with my nieces and would be crushed if I went more than 5 days without seeing them. I saw The Help and am reading the book again! That hanger is too neat! I am your newest follower and would love for you to come check out my blog!

  6. Thanks girls!

    Kate, thanks for the kind words! I tried to find your email on your blog but I couldn't see it anywhere. I hope you see this! The hanger is from My Amber Coloured World at www.myambercolouredworld.etsy.com. I've seen them all over Etsy but mine is from this shop and it is even more beautiful in person. I'm sure that your friends would LOVE receiving one as a gift; I did! :)
