11 in a 11!

I'm finally joining the party! I have just been too addicted to my new Christmas present to do anything else! I do plan on posting a new freebie by the end of the weekend, but for now, here are my 11 things in 2011!

11. Favorite movie you watched
I read this book for our Book Club this summer and I just loved it. Of course, when the movie came out, I was all about it! It even makes my top 10 best movies!

10. Favorite TV series
I know this is going to sound really dumb, but the Walking Dead is definitely my new favorite TV show. Basically, this cop wakes up from a coma and the world has been taken over by zombies. I know it sounds super corny and stupid, but it is such a thrilling drama and of course there is some scandalous business that goes on too! My brother got me hooked on the first season and it was all over after that. I don't EVER miss an episode! The second half of season 2 resumes on February 12! So excited...

9. Favorite restaurant
We have this fabulous restaurant in Greenville called American Grocery. It's expensive and definitely considered fine dining, but they use mostly local meats and produce when they can and it's just DI-VINE! Chef Joe Clarke never disappoints me with his rabbit, hanger steak, duck, or fish and the walls of the place are adorned with artwork of the locals. Love it!

8. Favorite new thing you tried
Favorite new thing I've tried is definitely making digital art! This is a VERY recent development but so much fun! I literally was dreaming of the clip art I was going to make last night. I did not sleep very well due to my excitement this morning to get up and create! This was my newest set as of this morning...

I'd love for you to go check out my Etsy shop!

Favorite gift you received
This is a tie, my mom gave me the Bamboo Tablet which I lUVVV!
And then my boyfriend bought me this gorgeous ring from Silpada.com! Hopefully, I'll be getting a ring for the other finger in 2012! =)

6. Favorite thing you pinned
OMG. I have no idea. I have pinned about a bazillion things. Um. I guess I would say anything to do with fonts, clip art, or digital frames/backgrounds because I use them ALL the time. I am OBsessed. 

5. Favorite blog post

I would say my Multiplication Tricks Sheet since soooo many people have viewed it and are able to use it. =) Even though I initially had some mistakes in there, (which I fixed), ya'll knew what I meant! I like creating stuff people can really use!

Favorite accomplishment
My favorite accomplishment was becoming a Promethean Activ Inspire trainer in my district! It pays and it's so much fun to share new tricks with teachers! I felt so honored to be asked!

3. Favorite picture
Man...this is tough too! I am torn between these two!
The first one is from Bunco! We had an 80's hair band theme.

Buuut, I also got to go to Costa Rica this summer and go ziplining!

2. Favorite memory
My favorite memory was definitely while I was in Costa Rica. I got to go in a cage full of howler monkeys and hang out with them and even hold one! Meet Chiqui Chiqui!
Ain't he cute!?

1. Goal for 2012
I don't normally make goals because I never keep them. But, I would like to cook more at home instead of eating out so much! Maybe I should take a cooking class or two...

Well, that's my 11 in 11! 

Head on over to A Teeny Tiny Teacher's blog to participate!

  6. Oh my goodness - that ring is GORGEOUS!!! I also have a bamboo tablet ... but I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't opened it yet (and I got it around 6 months ago). Maybe I'll have to make it one of my new years resolutions to figure it out!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog ... so excited to follow you!

  7. Love the 80's hair - the bigger the better! I live in Atlanta and my hubs and kids are dying to figure out how they can be an "extra" zombie. Apparently you have to go to "zombie school" to learn how to walk and act like a proper zombie...who knew! Your clip art is so cute! Becoming a follower and heading over to check out your pin boards right now!

  8. I'm crackin' up about the 80's hair and band theme. Love the new ring! It's beautiful. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your other finger in 2012. :) I'm a new follower!

  9. Kimberly, you would've been crackin' up even more if you had been there! It was HILARIOUS! Definitely my favorite girls night out thing to do!

  10. Can I blog about your graphics? I would love to write a small post about your stuff. My last post was about the terms of use from DJ Inkers. I would LOVE to feature a teacher graphic girl and who can resist your name. Just let me know... And can you tell us if we can use your graphics to sell teacher products? THANKS

  11. Go for it Mrs. Coe!! I have no problems with using my work in personal or commercial ventures as long as art is secure and you mention me in the credits. =)

  12. Oh my golly! That pic of you and the monkey is awesome!!! What a super neat experience! I just found out you did clipart and can't wait to check it out and so glad to hear you're teacher friendly:) Loved your post! I'm reading The Help right now and love!! I'm your newest follower:))
