2011 Favorites

Yeah, I know, we are already six days into the new year, but I don’t think it’s too late to share some of my favorites from 2011. No rhyme or reason to these categories and they are not necessarily the best, just my own favorites.

Movie: The King’s Speech. 

Book: I think I need to go with Spiritual Rhythm by Mark Buchanan. I’ll post my entire 2011 reading list next week.

Technology: Hands down, my iPad.

Trip: A lot of worthy candidates, including San Francisco, Denver, Chicago and the beach, but I’m going with our family “mystery adventure trip” to New York City last August.

Sporting Event: Easy, the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

TV Show: Dave and I just discovered Parenthood and are making our way through the last two seasons via Netflix streaming.

Purchase: Our sweet beagle puppy, Brewster.

Achievement: Completing my Ph.D.

Experience: Visiting Alcatraz.
