My top 12 post of 2013!

Well we are only 8 days into the new year but many bloggers have already posted their 2013 review posts!  I figure 8 days in is still a good time to wrap up the past year and share my top 12 post of 2013.  Kind of puts everything together in one nice post and then I can officially move forward into 2014!  These are the top post of each month last year, one from each month (excluding give aways and the weekend Blog Block Party!)

 In January we went to Massachusetts to start the new year and I started a new link up called Mommy Mondays.  My first post was about moving up to size 2 diapers!

In February Carter turned 6 months old and I created free love coupon printables, which ended up being a surprisingly popular post!

In March we took Carter to the aquarium for the first time and I posted about my ideas for Baby First Easter Basket.

April brought us Carter's first Easter and my husband's birthday!  But my most popular post that month was my Comment Promise Hop!

In May I joined with 6 other bloggers to start up the Weekend Blog Block Party!  I also participated in the May 30x30 Challenge, which were my most popular posts by far that month!

In June Carter had his first ever airplane ride when we went to Florida for vacation (although I didn't post about that until July)!  I also posted 5 Things I Wish I'd Known About Labor, Delivery and Recovery.

In July we went to the Keys for vacation (while my parents watched Carter! woot!) and we learned some strange things my baby doesn't like!

In August we celebrated Carter's FIRST birthday!!  I also had my Chick-fil-a paid for by a random stranger and I shared my really yummy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodles!

In September the blog world went crazy with "it's Fall Ya'll" and pumpkin spice everything posts.  I attempted (and failed) to sell some of my maternity clothes online and I also posted about Disclosing Your Blog to your Real Life Friends.


In October we bought & moved into our new house, my car caught fire and I had my last day of working as a teacher! (whew!)  I also said "age is just a number baby."

In November we had 9 people for Thanksgiving dinner, painted our house and was my first full month as a stay-at-home mom.  I shared "you know you're a blogger when."

 
Finally December came!  We had a huge snowstorm, but thankfully we traveled to Florida for Christmas and kept warm!  Carter had his first boating experience but slept through a lot of it!  My most popular post was my Pottery Barn inspired chalkboard tiles!

And that was my year in a nutshell!  What was one of your top post this year?  Share in the comments so we can all check it out!

  4. You had quite an eventful year! I am extremely jealous of the Florida picture, since I'm buried under a billion inches of snow. :)
