Most Popular Posts of 2017

Every year I like to highlight some of YOUR favorite posts of the year.  These are the posts that got the most views, most comments, etc.  Maybe you missed a post or two this year and it’s a fun way to look back at the most popular highlights.  πŸ™‚

And if you’re wondering why I’m doing this so early in December, it’s because I’m taking some time off after Christmas and my calendar is all filled up next week.

Last year, this was the list…{It was ALL ABOUT THE VACATIONS.}
#5 Slaughters in Mexico

The Slaughter family traded in our Florida beach trip for a Mexican vacation this year.  From dolphins to sand to tacos by the pool we had a BLAST!  I shared it all in Part 1,Part 2Part 3, and Part 4.

#3 New York City Fall Trip with the Family

The kiddos and I packed up and headed to New York City with Tab for a trip to the Big Apple and a West Point football game.  I shared the family fun in Part 1Part 2, and Questions Answered.

#2 New York City Spring Trip with Shay

Earlier this year, I accompanied Shay on her first trip to the Today show and my first trip to New York City!  We did all the girly things you can imagine and I shared it in Part 1Part 2, and Part 3.

#1 Spring Break Disney Cruise

For Spring Break this year, we packed up and headed south for a Disney Cruise with the Shull family.  It was five days full of fun in the sun.  We can’t wait to go back!  I shared it all in Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4, and You Asked.

See what I mean?  The vacations were definitely the highlight over on the blog.    

This year, this sweet face dominated the Top Five for sure. πŸ™‚

2017 List:

This one deserves an honorable mention.

This was one of Britt’s first weeks home.  It was a typical hot random mess of things including some pictures from the pool, my first week solo while Tab was working out of town, and a few hours to myself (pictured above :)).

#4 Spring Break Trip

We spent the first couple days of Spring Break in Denver and ended the trip in Vail.

#3 Britt turned TWO!

#2 Bringing Home Britt

On May 9th, we headed to Beijing to begin the trip of bringing home our Britt.  I blogged all the details-
