Happy New Year, all! I always like to take a moment to look back on the last year before the new one gets too far underway. And, what a roller coaster of a year 2013 was for our family! There were major highlights like our family trip to Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, Mr. Mom Endeavors getting a new job, getting to interview Mickey Mouse at Disneyland, and being at one of the most memorable Nebraska football games ever. But, the fall brought with it a lot of stress – like Baby Brother being hospitalized with a skin infection AND with 3rd degree hand burns (plus a whole string of other medical things for other family members). So, in that regard, we’re hoping for a more calm 2014. You may even see some changes here on the blog as I try make that (more calm) happen.
And, speaking of the blog, it’s so fun to look back on the blog stats from the year and see what the most popular posts were! It’s always interesting to see the posts that are the most-viewed (a HUGE thank you to all of you that take the time to read the posts, pin, share, etc). And, in looking at the stats from 2013, it’s very clear that roundups of ideas, food, and Disney are popular with you dear readers!
So, here’s a quick look back on the top posts of 2013…
