Friday Favorites

I can't believe this is the last Friday in 2016. What a great year it has been. I always love the start of a new year. I love that it is a fresh start. I always seem to start the new year with a bang. I am doing a major purge and organization of my house right now. I will be sharing some of my goals (I hate resolutions because the always get broken) for the new year next week!

2016 was the year I decided to take the plunge and start a blog. I am so thankful that I did. I have loved having an outlet from being a SAHM and I have loved even more the friendships and connections I have made through the blogging world.

Today I'm going to share my top 10 posts from 2016, which happen to be my top 10 posts of all time. It seems like you all are as nosey as I am, which I love! My home tours, bag tours, and confessions are at the tops of my most read posts!

O N E | Graham's Birth Story This was such a fun post for me to write. His birth was unlike what I had hoped for but in the end he is our perfect 20 lb 13 month old and we love him beyond measure!

T W O | What's in my pool bag I always love knowing what moms carry to the pool with them and you felt the same. I pretty much carry everything but the kitchen sink, and I'm sure this summer will be no different.

T H R E E | Thursday Confessions these always seem to be really popular, especially when I dish about mommy hood and some #fails that I've had. I love to #keepitreal on my blog

F O U R | Six to Nine Month Favorites this was a popular post since so many of my friends have little ones right now. I really need to go back and do 9-12 month favorites. Maybe that will be on my January calendar.

F I V E | Home Tour Tuesday I loved doing this home tour of my kitchen and den area. Maybe in 2016 I can get my act together and do a tour of my dining room, playroom, and upstairs. You did get a glimpse of it when I gave my christmas home tour.

S I X | Friday Favorites these are always fun posts especially when I share great finds that I've gotten from the week. Target one spot anyone?

S E V E N | What's In My Bag another nosey post! Check out what I carry around with me on a daily basis.

E I G H T | Friday Favorites another favorites post, the jeans I posted went viral. Everyone I know owns them. I own 3 pairs! You should go order the now if you haven't!

N I N E | Graham's Pumpkin Birthday Party This was such a fun party to recap. I love a first birthday and celebrating sweet Grahamy was such a great day!

T E N | Christmas Home Tour Since Christmas seems to be everyones favorite holiday (you are my people for sure!) It's no surprise that a christmas decor home tour was a favorite of ya'll! It's my favorite too!!

So there are my top 10 posts of 2016. I hope you will go back and check them out, maybe they were one of your favorites too! I would love to know if you have anything you want to see more of on my page or less of in 2017!

Have a wonderful and safe New Year friends! See you NEXT year!!

  1. Home tours are always so fun! I love seeing what other people's home look like and usually get some fun ideas for my house. Course maybe I'm just nosy. That was one of my highest viewed posts this year, but I deleted it when I went private. Loved Grahams Pumpkin Party. Such a cute theme! Happy New Year friend!

  2. What an excellent first year of blogging! I agree, it's so much fun, a great outlet, with lots of amazing people. Cheers to 2017! And Happy New Year!

  3. I'm new to blogging this year, too- if you're interested, I'm starting a blogger link-up once a month with the girls at Moms' Coffee Date for 2017. Happy New Year!

  4. So many fun memories from this year for you!!

  5. Yes to more of your home tour! I love what you've shared already!! So glad we connected this year!!
