Top 5 Posts For 2013

2013 was a year of highs and lows for us personally.  Mr. B lost both his grandfather and his father this past year making the holidays a bit somber.


We did gain a new grand daughter though!  Lil Miss Sweetpea is the bright spot for us and I can't wait to meet her in a few weeks! I also got to go visit my Lil Peanut grandson this year and I truly believe he is not only the handsomest little boy but, also the smartest! 

Mr. B & I also took on the challenge of selling our first home together and purchasing a new home.  Stressful but oh so worth it!

It was also a very good year for this blog!  I try to learn something new to implement at least once a week and it has paid off in new friends and followers!  I just love that the bestest!  

Looking back at my top 5 blog posts allows me to get a good feel on what you enjoy seeing here so let's hop in the time machine and see what they were!

I look forward each week to the weekly party and, evidently, so do you as several of the parties made it into the top 10 viewed and visited!  The party starts every Monday night at around 6:00 PM Mountain time and I always look forward to seeing what you have to share each week!


As much as you like to party, it also seems you like reviews and giveaways! I plan on having more of these types of posts available in 2014 so keep an eye out for them!

I am soooo enjoying our new home and being able to decorate for the holidays.  I loved taking you on a tour of how I decorated for our first Christmas in our new home!

My very favorite hobby is tablescaping!  The table I set for Christmas this year wasn't only one of your favorites but, was also mine!  I'm looking forward to setting even more fun tables in the new year.

This was not only the most viewed post here in 2013, it is the most popular post I have done since I started blogging!  It got featured on some pretty big blogs and websites giving it hit after hit after hit and it continues to be viewed in big numbers today! 

So, there you have it, the top 5 reasons I will continue sharing my tables, recipes, decor, DIY projects and MORE with you in 2014! I have a whole new house still needing to be shared as well as a new garden space I am anxious to get my hands dirty in!  As always, I love having you visit me, comment and share with me!  On to the New Year friends!!
