Thirteen in ’13!!

FIRST of all, let me say that this blog is undergoing some new design challenges….. my free template, background, and stuff, is gone for very good reasons….but I am now faced with redesigning on my own or paying for a custom design……it may take a few days to decide….in the meantime I have some temporary background and headers…… which I kinda like…..

HOWEVER! Here’s a great Linky idea!!

Thanks to Miss KindergartenDragonflies in First,
A Teeny Tiny Teacher for this look back at

are my 13 moments of 2013:

I totally
began wearing boots— a lot— last winter and I’m enjoying it now! Dresses,
leggings, jeans….. Here’s my favorite pair:

my, there are several from which to choose:
re-read the second book before the movie and loved it! We saw it in a Big-D
theater so it was spectacular!
I also loved:
is a must-see movie, for sure. you just gotta love Sandra Bullock and for about
ten seconds George Clooney is in this movie. See it in 3-D!

this is going to be hard….cause I’m a TV junkie. I loved the ending season
of Breaking
I did love Dexter and I really
like The
Walking Dead,
if I have to pick ONE—- it’s:
I watch every show after DVRing it, but not this one. This one I watch LIVE,
people, so it must be serious business to actually sit through the
commercials……I love it! I’m an Alicia/Will fan— how about you?????

EWWWWW……this one
is hard, cause really, if I am being totally honest, I think pop tarts make a
perfectly good meal, but if I get to choose the restaurant we go to it would
I also think there is
nothing wrong with ice cream for supper…. just sayin’…..

Well, this one is super easy to answer cause it’s
TPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my store and working on products, using products, designing
pages and covers, everything! The fact that it is somewhat successful after
three months makes it even more fun, I must say!

just returned from a 6 day ski trip to Colorado! This was
my husband’s gift to the family for Christmas this year! We took our son
and his girlfriend and our daughter and her husband.
Mountain was beautiful and it snowed daily. We had a lot of fun!

how can you answer that question—  I pinned about 27 million things this
year…….okay here’s the favorites but with some categories:

FOOD: It’s a Cheese Dip and quite wonderful. Click {HERE} for the recipe!

QUOTE: Makes me laugh every time…..

SCHOOL-RELATED: My classroom is
a STEM Lab and this year has been one of total CREATION! Everyday is amazing,
but it has been a ton of work! I have relied on web based sources for ideas for
STEM lessons and design challenges. One of THE BEST I pieced together is the Spaghetti challenge! Here are some very
interesting structures:

Welllllll….I flipped back through briefly and this post caught

This is easy- it’s the creation of my STEM LAB!

I worked most of the summer to turn an
almost empty space into a SPECTACULAR SCIENCE LAB!  Click {HERE} or {HERE} to see more of the lab!

Another easy one:
My daughter’s wedding was in June!

Gotta be the wedding:

My ultimate goal is to be the facilitator of
STEM labs in the remaining elementary schools in my city. I’d love to help some
schools get started in the coming months and spend the summer equipping labs
and collaborating on lessons!


So, how about you?? What one word can you
apply to your year?
Merry Christmas, y’all!
