2015 Blogger Year In Review | My Most Popular Posts

December is such a busy time of year.  Not only are we celebrating Christmas all month long, but it's an obvious time to reflect on the past year.  Not only am I reflecting on my personal life, I have also been reflecting on the year according to the blog.  That's why I am so excited to be co-hosting this 2015 Blogger Year in Review linkup!  I am really looking forward to sharing some great blogging moments from the past year!   Today I'm sharing some of my most popular (and my favorite) posts.  Next week I will be sharing a few blog related things I've learned this year.  And I will finish the series by sharing some of my favorite bloggers and posts I think are worth reading.  I hope you enjoy and link up with us as well!



One - House Updates

At the beginning of the year, I was sharing a lot of room reveals.  We moved into our first house the Summer of 2014, so there were lots of rooms to decorate and then share.  I hope to share some more organizing posts in 2016 as well as continue to share how I decorate around the holidays.  




Two - Stitch Fixes

This year I started receiving quarterly Stitch Fixes.  I know I love seeing what other bloggers receive and keep.  These are definitely some of my most popular posts.  

Stitch Fix #1, #2, and #3

Three - Family Adventures

My blog started off as a digital scrapbook of our adventures as a couple and then a family, so I'm happy to see that my readers enjoy those kinds of posts as well.  



This year we went to Diggerland, Sesame Place (first and second visit), Hershey Park, Day out with ThomasThomas Land, and the Little League World Series.

We also went on a few day/weekend trips to Baltimore (Day 1, 2, 3), Brooklyn, Penn State, LBI, Narragansett Beach, and in Boston :)

Four - Crazy for Crafts

 This year, I started sharing the crafts that I do with Noah.  We've always loved doing crafts at our house and it seems my readers enjoy them too :)



We had fun crafting around the holidays... Valentine's Day craftsSt. Patty's Day craftsEaster craftspatriotic crafts, and decorating our trunk for Halloween!

We made lots of different animals... a monkeya butterfly and dragonfly, a giraffe and lionbirds, an octopus and jellyfisha fish and a turtle, and a butterfly and bee.

We also did some random crafts, like a rocket shipapple stampingpainting with leavesFall tissue paper crafts, a watermelona strawberry and the sun, sand ome sensory bins.

Five - All About Noah

And it shouldn't be a surprise that I post a lot of about Noah.  Thankfully, my readers seem to enjoy reading about all the little details as well :)



I shared updates about Noah's sleeping situation, his naps, and the cute things Noah says (Noah-isms volume 1 and 2).  Posts about Noah's first day of pre-school, his kids' birthday partyfamily birthday party, and his quarterly updates (2.252.52.75, and 3) were all huge hits.  



I'm also linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday" and with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday"!
