11 in '11 Linky Party fun!

Hadar over at Miss Kindergarten and Kristin over at Teeny Tiny Teacher are hosting a fun Linky Party!  I am linking up and so should you!

11. Favorite movie you watched: 
My favorite movie from 2011 was The Help.  I have seen it twice now and will probably watch is several more times.  I read the book first and then watched the movie...which doesn't usually work out for me since I usually hate any movie that doesn't follow the book exactly!

10. Favorite TV series:
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I love the Food Network.  If I wasn't a teacher, I would love to be a chef or caterer.  I love all things Food Network and my favorite is Iron Chef America.

9. Favorite restaurant:
My absolute favorite restaurant is Fancy Q on Saint Simon's Island.  About a 45 minute drive for me (I live in such a small town...most nice places are a drive), but so worth it!  They have the best sushi!!

8. Favorite new thing you tried:
Blogging......my new addiction!!  I have met some great people and have learned lots of new things.

7. Favorite gift you got:
 My favorite gift were the yard tools and gift cards (to buy paint for my new house) from my children!

6. Favorite thing you pinned:
I am also addicted to Pinterest!!  I have pinned so many things, but my favorite pin was the curtain rod jewelry organizer because it was my first DIY pinterest project.

5. Favorite blog post:
 I guess it would have to be my Winter Fun Activities post.

4. Best accomplishment:
Buying a house all by myself!!  I am pretty proud that I could navigate finding a reasonably priced house, make sure it is sound and worth the money, and get the financing without help from a man anyone. :0)

3. Favorite picture:
My favorite picture is of my beautiful granddaughter Avarie!

2. Favorite memory:
My favorite memory was the cruise I took with my mom, daughter, and son-in-law this past summer.  We went to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Nassau.  The spa on the ship was "to die for"!
Me dressed for dinner.

My favorite place ever....the spa!

1. Goal for 2012:
To get fit.  To make myself exercise (cause I hate it)!  To eat better!  To be healthier!

Oh, love the Help! Love that the movie lived up to the book! :)
Your grand baby is the cutest little thing. But you don't look old enough to be a grandmother. :)
Thank you so much for linking up!!!

So glad I found your blog through the link up! I've yet to read the book or see the movie, but I just got The Help for Christmas and hope to have it started by the end of the week!
