Faves of 2012

Mama Kat had an awesome Writer’s Workshop prompt this week. The ladies at MomSmack listed their top 10 faves of 2012 and she suggested that we use their list as a template to fill in your own answers. I can do that! So here they are…

1. Favorite 2012 Movie: Yeah well I’ll be honest and say I rarely (read: pretty much never) watch movies anymore. I can’t even watch a half hour TV show without being harassed interrupted by the kids. You want a TV show? I’ll give you a list. But movies? Not so much.

Hmmm….can’t think of one that really stands out. We’ll go with Magic Mike. Because Matthew McConaughey is on my free pass list and while I have never given Channing Tatum a second glance, the boy can dance! And that makes him super hot. So yeah.

I told my sister Heather that I had rented it one night when Jason was at work and the kids were asleep. She asked me how it was. My response: “The acting sucked, but I’m gonna watch it again tonight!”

2. Favorite Album: Choice of Weapon by The Cult. I am not a fan of the whole album, but I am a die hard fan.

3. Favorite Song: Pontoon by Little Big Town. Hands down, nothing even comes close.

4. Favorite Tweeter: Just one? Really? I plead the 5th. But The Bloggess always makes me feel. Sometimes happy, sometimes sad, most of the time she makes me laugh, but she always makes me feel.

5. Favorite Blog: I read lots of blogs, but rarely comment. I loves me some Funny or Snot, Kludgy MomLetters for Lucas, and Modern Day Moms and I never miss them. But I read lots, lots more. Like Mommy ShortsOne Martini at a Time, The BloggessAll Things Fadra, and the list goes on…

6. Favorite TV Show: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And Miami. And Orange County. But those are the only Real Housewives I watch.

And Law & Order: SVU.

And don’t tell anybody, but I absolutely adore Judge Milian on People’s Court. I may or may not DVR it every day.

7. Favorite Instagramer: Project Alicia. Her photos make me want to learn how to really take a picture. And she’s one of the loveliest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting (online, though I know I’d love her in person too!)

8. Favorite Moment: Spending an entire weekend with my husband celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in Paso Robles. I wish I could sneak away with him more often.

9. Favorite Conference: Blissdom! I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved Blissdom. Also? If I hadn’t gone, I would have never met my partner in crime at Have Wine, Will Drink….Sili from My Mamihood!

10. Favorite Viral Video: Dan Henig covering Lil’ Jon’s Get Low.

Mama’s Losin’ It I wrote this post for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop for Prompt #1: The ladies at MomSmack listed their top 10 faves of 2012 here. Use their list as a template and fill in your own answers! 


  1. All great mentions. What a true and wonderful observation about the Bloggess and her tweets. Who wouldn't love that said about them. For someone who is involved with social media -- I didn't even attempt this prompt because I couldn't answer so many of the questions without really thinking. Favorite movie or song of the year? I dunno. I need to get out more. Look forward to investigating what people come up with. Jamie@SouthMainMuse recently posted..A Photo is Worth 3,650 days.My Profile
  2. I obviously need to get out more. Or, perhaps just turn on my TV or radio. You've mentioned a few titles here that I've never heard of. And your 10th anniversary? Dreamy! Congrats! Sue - The Spin Cycle recently posted..When the Kidz Stop ScreamingMy Profile
  3. You still love me! And I so hear you about the movies - Magic Mike was the only movie I saw in the theater all year. Poppy recently posted..3 Bloggers I’d Want in the Delivery Room While Giving BirthMy Profile
  4. Our radio stations overplayed Pontoon to the point where I stopped wanting to hear it! I hate when that happens. Shell recently posted..Pour Your Heart Out: Living Far from Family and FriendsMy Profile
  5. I think we love a lot of the same blogs. JDaniel4's Mom recently posted..Child Reading- How I'm Growing a ReaderMy Profile
  6. This prompt is so much fun! I'm learning about so many bloggers and finding out some new things I need to check out. I loved the viral video you chose! Kristen recently posted..2012 FavoritesMy Profile
  7. And because your faves are so much like mine is why we are IRL friends! Long before the days of SEO, Twitter or blogs. :) Thanks for including me on your list. Tonya recently posted..FavesMy Profile
