11 in '11!!!

I've seen postings all week about Hadar and Kristen's 11 in '11 Linky Party and have wanted to link up!!  I know I'm almost a little late in posting this, but I have been quite distracted this week!  Not only have I been posting my first TpT item (Read about it HERE!!), celebrating Christmas, and turning a year older, but Mr. Hubs and I closed on our very first house!! Woohoo!!  

A little late is better than never, right?  Here's my 11 in '11

11. Favorite movie you watched: I'm having a hard time remembering what I watched this year, but I'd have to say Harry Potter....Did that come out this year, or last?  Gosh!  That's how crazy my year has been!! :)

10. Favorite TV series:  Easy.  Revenge.  Mr. Hubs and I are definitely addicted.

9. Favorite restaurant:  Picasso's... it's a local restaurant back where I grew up and they have literally ANYTHING you could want.  It's also where Mr. Hubs and I went on our first date!!
8. Favorite new thing you tried:  Blogging!! So addicting!

7. Favorite gift you got:  My Papa took my fam on a trip to Italy!!  It was so fun getting to take my new Mr. Hubs along!! :)

6. Favorite thing you pinned: Crock-pot mac and cheese!!  Mmmmmm.....

5. Favorite blog post:  I don't have a ton, but probably my post about my DJ Inkers activity!  It was so exciting!

4. Best accomplishment:  Wowzers...this year was, as I said before, CRAZY!!!  I got married, started a new job, moved cities, lived in an apartment for the first time, started blogging, and bought my first house....all with only a ton of few tears. :)  I HATE change, but I made it and I'm so thankful for it all!!!
3. Favorite picture:  Wedding pictures (obviously!!) but here's my MOST favorite!  I LOVED my photographer too!  Check her (and my wedding!) out at Katie Norris Portrait Arts!

2. Favorite memory: My wedding!! :) ...sorry for my repetition, but it was wonderful!  It was the perfect day I had always dreamed of!!!  Complete with my perfect groom and lots of pink!!
1. Goal for 2012:  To embrace change more willingly!!  If I can take 2011...the rest of it should be a breeze! :)

Love, Sara :)


  1. Wow! What a great year for you!! Beautiful wedding picture! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Mmm... homemade Mac and Cheese! The very best, and something about making it from scratch makes me feel like it's "healthy" ;)
