Thirteen in '13 {Linky Party}

I am linking up with Miss Kindergarten, A Teeny Tiny Teacher, and Dragonflies in First for their Thirteen in '13 linky party.

I love these skinny jeans from Levi's.  They are called Demi Curve.  I've never actually own a pair of Levi's jeans and I think I got them from the outlet.  But they fit better than all the other skinny jeans I have, even the more expensive ones.  They stretch a little, at the right point on my waist, and are the perfect length for me.

While we were in Colorado for Christmas, I get hearing a loud boom go off every hour.  Apparently they do it to cause avalanches to keep the snow from piling up.  All I could think about was the cannon in the movie that goes off when one of the tributes is gone.

I just started watching The Good Wife a couple of weeks ago on Amazon Prime and I love it.  I'm already into the second season.  It's great because each episode has it's own story line that wraps up but the entire show has an ongoing drama that keeps you wanting to know what will happen next.  

This is a little cafe that I think exists only in the south…but it has the best baked potato soup ever, topped with cheese and bacon.  They have good breakfasts, sandwiches, and desserts too.

I tried blogging and TpT this year!  Granted, I sort of fell out of it since school started this year but hopefully I can keep it up now.

The best gift I got from someone else this year is my new Vera Bradley bag.  I really wanted it but the site kept saying it was sold out.  But, my mom got it for me for Christmas.

The best gift that I got for myself is my MacBook Air!! Best decision ever!

I am so glad that I saw this because I ended up making 24 of them for my coworkers and love how they came out.

I went on a Monday Made it Craze this summer.  The above post shows how I made everything in the picture.  I have not made a thing since...

I finally completed my degree this year!  I now have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in literacy.  Yay to more free time!  I didn't actually go to the graduation so I am still awaiting my diploma in the mail.

This is my cat in bed.  She leads a rough life.

This year I got to go to Colorado, Hawaii, and to see Tim McGraw three times!

I have two goals that I MUST accomplish this year or else I will be one sad person since these were sort of my goals last year too and they clearly haven't happened…have a baby and buy a house.

I don't know if this is supposed to be a word for 2013 or 2014, but I will go with next year.  I need to learn to take time to relax and not worry about everything all of the time!


  1. I'm loving your one word! I totally want to take time to relax this year, too. Especially Sunday nights- I am reclaiming them! No more cramming in last minute grading and planning.... at least for a few weeks until I break the resolution. :)
