Top Posts of 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

It is both fun and interesting to look back at what my most viewed posts of 2013 were. It seems that in the past year the things that were viewed most were posts that caught a lot of attention on Pinterest. Pinterest is an awesome phenomenon that has afforded me many new readers and also helped me find many great recipes, crafts and more. In the coming year I hope to create some awesome content that is just as popular as my crafts and recipes!

#1:  Foster's Lorax Party: The Toddler Table & Treat Buffet- This was probably one of my favorite posts this year as well. There are tons of pictures and this showed off all of the really hard work that I put into Foster's 2nd birthday party. These pictures have spread all over Pinterest and have even been seen popping up on the "popular pins" page. 
#2: Foster's Lorax Party: The Front Door & Entryway- Another post with party pictures from Foster's 2nd birthday. This featured pictures of the decor from the entryway and front door. Can you tell I love to throw birthday parties?!
#3: World's Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas- The title really says it all with this one. I really assume that it was the third most popular post because they are so insanely good. These are addicting to say the least. I am betting that most people who tried these have been back for the recipe more than once!
#4: Crafty Practitioner's Cornbread Casserole- This is one of my favorite dishes. The family requests that I make it for all holidays. This year I made it for Thanksgiving and for Christmas Eve dinner with my parents and father-in-law. It is definitely a crowd pleaser!
#5: Gooey Cheesy Potatoes- I almost forgot about this recipe! Now seeing it on my top list, and at number 5, I think I need to make it again ASAP! Yummy!!!
#6: DIY Halloween Tulle Wreath- This was a fun and easy craft! This was another one that went viral on Pinterest. I wish I would have taken a picture after it rested for a couple days because the material settled and it looked awesome. I recommend this for a great fall/halloween wreath!
#7: Foster's Lorax Party: Additional Decor & The Backyard- Again, pictures and decor from Foster's birthday party. Can you tell it was a hit? On the same note, can you tell i'm psycho about parties? haha.
#8: Marvelous Mondays (#58): Slowcooker Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken- This was a link up that I participated in by posting a slow cooker recipe that I love! If there is one thing that my husband would tell you about my cooking in 2013 it would be that I fell deeply in love with my crock-pot.... DEEPLY in love.
#9: Slowcooker BBQ Ribs- Another slow cooker recipe. This makes the most tender ribs! These fall off the bone and have tons of flavor. I love the smell that fills my house when I am making them. Rib lover right here!
#10: Tasty Tuesday: Baked Spasagna- Yum, yum, yum. I am what I like to call "Italian by marriage" so this is heaven on a plate for me. I think this would be a kiddo-pleaser too as long as you don't have my kid who refuses to eat pasta, weirdo!

Don't forget to come back and link up tomorrow for my New Years Resolution Link Up!!
