Friday Five Faves {#14} — Top 5 Posts

Happy Friday!!

Oh my. I had a great little picture all ready to post on Wednesday wishing you all a Merry Christmas, but you know what? We were having WAY too much fun for me to even open my computer. I hope that your Christmas was just as full of fun and family as mine was.

We enjoyed a day warm enough to open windows, margaritas and tacos, and even a family basketball game –with 4 generations!


This is the last Friday Five Faves for 2013, so I thought I would do my top 5 visited posts of 2013.

Thank you so much to all of you for reading!

This new adventure has been such a blessing to me, and I hope that it has been a blessing for you!

I hope that you’ll leave comments at the end of this post letting me know what you’d like to see more of in 2014. More projects? More stories? What are your favorite things about the blog? Let me know so we can keep doing more of that!

So without further ado…

Raising Spartans

Noah and Aidan

This was my very first post, so it’s really cool that it’s been one of the most popular.

It certainly describes the reason what my goals are as a mother, and one of the main reasons why I started this blog in the first place.


Okay, so I freaked out. So what??

When I first started blogging, I had a little moment of panic and insecurity.

To be honest, I have these more than I would like to admit.

This post was my admission, and then my commitment to push through my fears and keep blogging, because I’ve come to realize that I have been called to this for now.

Boy, am I glad that I stuck with it — I would’ve missed out big time!


My Scrabble Wall

Scrabble Wall Finished

This is still one of the posts that gets the most views.

I’m so glad that other people have loved the wall as much as I do. It’s a very special addition to our home, and I’m glad that it’s been an inspiration for a few other Scrabble walls, too!


Project Elephant {#2} – Secret Project


Of all my projects, this is one of my favorites, too, so I’m glad others have liked it, too!

I love that this one has been circulated on Pinterest and on Facebook…I hope that some people are benefitting from all of the closet organization tips, too!

…and the top post of 2013…


Santa Confession


This post was, by far, the most viewed post of the year.

It totally caught me off guard.

I can’t believe how quickly it spread all over Facebook!

It was meant to just be a glimpse into our Christmas, and instead, it became a discussion and food for thought.

It was so cool to see that people really connected with something I had to say.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for sharing!

I am so blessed by all of you!

Don’t forget to leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite things (or least favorite things) about the blog are! Or leave me a comment letting me know what things you’d like to see more of in 2014!
