14 in '14

This is a fun link-up! And most likely, my last post of 2014. Linking up with A Teeny Tiny Teacher, for this one.

14. Favorite Quote
I have always loved this quote.

13. Favorite article of clothing
This year I succumbed to the blanket scarf trend and loved it!

12. Favorite movie you watched
Honestly, it may be the movie I just saw last night. I read the book this year, too, and loved it. The whole journey of this woman just really spoke to me. We can find ourselves by losing ourselves in nature.

11. Favorite TV series
I have many, but one I really got into this year was Homeland, so I'll go with that.

10. Favorite restaurant
We ate at Frontera Grill in Chicago for the first time ever this year (a Rick Bayless restaurant) and it was fantastic.

9. Favorite new thing that you tried
Not totally new, but I acquired a renewed love for hiking after our trip to the Smokies and now we go almost every weekend.

8. Favorite gift you received
Tough question. Probably money for our new leather sofa from my parents. I love this thing.

7. Favorite thing you've pinned
It's always clothes:

This is from the blog Franish.

6. Favorite blog post
I found this blog from Secondary Solutions about plagiarism to be helpful and informative.

Doing all the landscaping in our front yard by ourselves.

4. Favorite photo
The view from Clingman's Dome, the highest point in Smoky Mountain National Park

3. Favorite memory
Probably our aforementioned trip to the Smokies.

2. 2015 Goal
Save more money!

1. One little word

  2. Great 14! I'm near the Smokies right now but it's raining a ton so I can't really see them much. Merry Christmas!
