Another year is soon to be in the books. I tend to think of the years of my life in terms of school years, rather than calendar years. Am I the only one? But I'm excited for the fresh start that comes after a Christmas break. I have plans to celebrate the New Year at one of my favorite local restaurants, Cafe Del Sol. Great food, family, and friends! It should be interesting with three toddlers!2
I am excited to be linking up for the 13 in 13 linky party! So here you have it.
Fail on the first question... I honestly don't have one right now! I haven't purchased anything new in forever. I did get a cute new purse from Target today!
I'm sure the answer would be Hunger Games or The Hobbit had I seen either one. We live away from family so the hubs and I don't get to the movies often! So I will be honest and say:
We recently watched it on DirectTV. Cute! Maybe soon we'll be brave enough to take Jackson to the movies for a matinee.
This summer, at the urging of my sister, my husband and I got into (became obsessed with) Game of Thrones. So. Good. Counting down the days to season 4!
IJ Cans American Grille, here in Winchester, VA. Great food and great atmosphere!
Opening a store on Teachers Pay Teachers, and starting this blog, of course! I am loving all the connections I'm making with excellent teachers all over the world. This journey has renewed my excitement for teaching in a way I never imagined. And the journey is only just beginning!
My bread machine is probably my favorite Christmas gift so far. I try to cut out processed foods as much as possible (I am eating M&M's as I type that statement), but grocery store bread is just so hard to stop buying. I'm hoping this will help us transition to more of the homemade stuff!
I love this blog post I pinned about mother-son dates. I'm vowing right here and now to have mother-son dates regularly with Jackson in the new year!
This blog is so brand-new, I honestly don't have a favorite post yet. I'm still trying to figure this blogging thing out. I think my posts on guided reading are probably the most informative.
Back to the blog and my store on TpT. The K Teacher Talk Facebook page too! This is not meant as self-promotion at all; I'm just loving this experience and I'm proud of the things I've created!
I took this over Christmas break at my husband's grandma's house. It's a blurry cell phone pic but I love it! My 2 best boys.
Every memory with Jackson and Joe is precious. Jackson is at the age of discovery and watching him learn and grow is such a blessing.
I never make New Year's Resolutions, because I know that I will break them! I like the term goal much better! My goal is to keep on learning and improving my teaching, to enjoy my students and family and to take time to savor them more. Time passes by so quickly and I want to just slow down and count my blessings.
Faith. I'm a huge worry-wort by nature. I need to trust in God's plan for my life more and stop worrying about what the future holds.
So that's my 13 for 13! What are yours?
