12 in 12 linky

Yes, I am a little late to this party! But, better late than never right??? Thanks Kristen and Hadar for hosting this fun linky!
Alright...here I go:)

12-favorite movie

My husband and I don't go see movies that much! Not sure why, but we don't! But today, I had a doctors appointment and just took the rest of the day off. We went and saw The Hobbit! It was really good! If you liked Lord of the Rings, you will love The Hobbit!

11-favorite TV series
I have a few that I watch all the time! I have been a follower of Greys, SVU, American Horror Story, The League, and The Walking Dead for a few years now. BUT...my new TV show that I am sad to admit I just started watching it is...
I LOVE The Big Bang Theory so much, I bought seasons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to get caught up! I think Sheldon is soooo cute;) Not my kind of guy, but I love how quirky and funny he is! 

10-favorite restaurant

I am a fan of local restaurants, not chains. Where I live in NC it is all chains and food that is bland! I HATE it! So, for my favorite restaurant, it is one in Hawaii that I just LOVE Shokudo Japanese! I can't wait to move there and eat it again! And just look at their famous Honey Toast Dessert. Can you say delish! It is to die for...seriously

9-Favorite new thing I tried

I just started Pilates and LOVE it! I will be going every Sunday at 2:15 for sure! I am loving how it makes me feel. I can't wait to see results after doing it more often! Thanks to my personal trainer for recommending it to me!

8-favorite gift I have received
My family and I don't do gifts really! Sad huh? We tend to buy what we want when we want it. I have to say one gift from my husband was a book I have been waiting to read. I came home and it was sitting in my nightstand! It was a very sweet thing to do:)

7-favorite thing I pinned
Now, I love to bake and try new recipes. BUT...this is the.best.chocolate.chip.cookie.recipe.EVER! You MUST try it! So glad I pinned it!

6-favorite blog post
I would have to say my very first blog post! It was the start of a beautiful friendship with all my new bloggy friends:)

5-Biggest Accomplishment
I have to say, it was quitting Starbucks and starting back with my personal trainer! I feel so much better about myself without all those extra calories I was drinking. My personal trainer is the best thing that has happened to be in a long time-don't tell my hubby;) I need her! She gets me and all the struggles I go through. She pushes me, she listens. She gives advice, she is kind. She is a role model. She has become a dear friend of mine over the past 4 years! I am so glad I finally started working out with her one on one again! best.decision.ever!

4-Favorite Picture
Well, I have a few I want to share! This one was taken last January in Hawaii at Kailua Beach! I love that place and can't wait to go back. Is it June yet???

And as many of you know, I have been trying to work out, eat better all to lose weight!

Well, here is my school picture from October...YUCK!
And I JUST took this picture this weekend. I love it! What I love the most, is I can see a HUGE difference...can you???

I am not one who usually post pics of myself, but I am proud! I am doing something right for me:)

3-favorite memory
2012 was a very low key year for my husband and I. Our families and friends are all doing well and so are we. Nothing exciting or new happened! I would have to say my favorite memory of 2012 was the night my husband and I decided to move to Hawaii. We talk about it daily and are ready to leave NC. 2013 is going to be a year of many changes for us and I can't wait!

2-Goal for 2013
Well, I have a few
1.keep up with my workout plan 
2. do better about eating more. I like to eat, it's just trying to find the time to eat! haha!
3. move to Hawaii successfully!
4. Start a family;)
