12 favorites from 2012

As the new year is rolling around, I thought I would copy my good friend Kaleigh over at 
A Rambling Fancy and write about my 12 favorite things from 2012. 

 1.) Favorite Beauty Product
Deinitely Bare Minerals foundation. I have been using this stuff for a few years now and it is still my absolute favorite. There is no other makeup that is as light and still manages to cover up all of the imperfections on your face. It's wonderful.

2.) Favorite Movie
This was a really tough choice..., but I'm going to have to say The Hunger Games. Not only was this one of my favorite books, but I thought they did a great job with the movie. And it brought about one of the funniest youtube videos of all time! 

3.) Favorite Song
Feel free to judge, but I loved two songs this year! The first one is "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz. I listened to this song on repeat for like three days when it first came out. It is such a beautiful song! I also love "That's What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction. I mean, come on, you just have to dance and sing along when this song comes on. It reminds me of the good ol' NSYNC days.  

4.) Favorite Moment
I have two as well...When I got my teaching job at Angie Debo and we we bought our house!  

5.) Favorite Fashion Trend
Geez, I am the most indecisive person because I have two AGAIN! Sorryboutcha. I really loved the neon trend this summer. Who doesn't love wearing bright colors! But, probably my most favorite trend is aztec/tribal print. I LOVE this trend. It is totally me. I have to physically force myself not to buy every single aztec jewelry/purse/shirt/sweater when I go shopping. 

6.) Favorite Place to Shop
Target, Forever 21, and Charlotte Russe

7.) Favorite Trip  
We went on so many wonderful trips this year...but I would have to say London was definitely the best. 

8.) Favorite T.V. Show
Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Pretty Little Liars, and Family Feud

9.) Favorite Local Joint
OKC has some EXCELLENT local places to eat. Some of my favs are: Cuppies and Joe, Big Truck Tacos, McNellies ($3 burgers on Wednesdays!), The Wedge, Alfredos, and Credo House. Support Local Business!

10.) Favorite Purchase
Besides our house...I would have to say our little darling Dexter. Even though technically we got him for free off of Craiglist, he has definitely been a cuddly investment.      

11.) Favorite Social Media
Pinterest. I have gotten SO many countless ideas for our house, activities for my classroom, recipes, and more from this site. I also just learned that you can follow people on Instagram Yep, you read that right. I just thought it was an app to make your pictures look vintage. So I'm kinda loving that right now.

 12.) Favorite Verse
"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10 
When life is great, be still. When life sucks, be still. When life is uncertain, be still. 
God is God and he is in control. 

 Happy 2013! May your new year bring you even more joy than the past!
