13 in 13 Linky Party

I'm linking up with Miss Kindergarten, A Teeny Tiny Teacher, and Dragonflies in First for their 3rd annual linky party!!

Scarves!! I wear them with everything!! I began sewing (somewhat) this year, so I started making infinity scarves....which has multiplied into a hot mess of scarves hanging on the back of the bedroom door.

I haven't seen Catching Fire yet (I know I know....but if I have I'm sure that would be my favorite) but seeing as I haven't....I guess it would have to be

Very good!'s this!
(shocker huh?)

But I still love 

We don't really eat out a lot....and honestly there's a lot of restaurants where I live but nothing out of the ordinary that just makes me want to go all of the time. But there is a little place that we go a lot on teacher's soooo good.


I've been doing a lot of DIY projects lately and my most favorite thing I've been working on is the burlap door hangers. It's been fun!!

 I made this one for my mom for Christmas.


The hubs and I didn't exchange gifts this year but I did get an upgrade on my phone (finally!!!) and got the Iphone 5c!! I'm so happy with it b/c now I have storage space and can do more with it!
Mine is blue! :)


I have a confession to make---I'm an avid pinner. Especially if I'm sitting somewhere waiting for something---I'm on pinterest. Crazy I know but I completely understand that it's ok and that I'm not the only one! ;) I'm here if you would like to follow!

Do I have to pick one pin??? Whew----

Well I just pinned this the other day and although we do not have a baby on the way or anything---this is a great shower idea or any party for that matter!!
Use golf tees to tie balloons to the ground!! How cute!
Use Golf Tees to put Balloons in the ground lining the walkway for a birthday, baby shower or any other party :)

 One of my favorites was all about Bats! One of YOUR favorite posts was last year's (2012) December currently and a freebie!


Finished Graduate school in August with my Master's in Elementary Education!!! :)

This is one from this summer when we went on our mission trip! :)
And of course our Christmas picture!

Seeing black bears up close on our mission trip---something that we sure don't see where I live. Not like this!

Be a little more healthy---stick with the walking that I've been doing and add to it. Eat better (I'm a sweet junkie) and stick with it. No diets, just better eating habits.



What a great promise <3 
He has promised us so many things---I just have to stay faithful in His promises.

  1. I loved reading through your 13 in 13! Black bears, awesome and scary, but so beautiful! Promise is a perfect OLW, mine is pray, so it seems we are on the same wavelength. This coming year I need to focus on HIM.
    Happy and Blessed New Year!
