Blogging for FOUR years // Top 10 posts


As of this month, I have been blogging for FOUR years now.  It is kind of great, I don't really have any true 'hobbies' so this kind of serves that purpose and I have surprised myself that I have stuck with it this long.

I like blogging. I love that I can look back and see pictures of Ben and I as newlyweds, our first apartment, our first Valentines Day, look to see how I was feeling at 20 weeks pregnant, and look to see was it 6 or 7 months when Everett was sitting on his own?

I also just like to vent, write, talk, gossip, share and put down my feelings and thoughts, whether it's about motherhood, Vampire Diaries, Everett, the book I am reading, etc. My blog has become such an outlet for me, a time capsule that I love.  For a minute there I was trying to really grow my blog and get a million followers and make it big (hahaha) but it was so so much work and time and money and it started to lose the wonder and fun for me, so here I am just doing it for me and my family and you know, my future posterity.

I thought I would share my top 10  favorite and most viewed posts I have written in the past four years  (274 posts yo!).

That one time I 'came out' about my pretty impressive TV addiction. The only thing that has changed is there are more beloved shows in my line up now.

This list of 10 things I love, but everyone else hates is kind of stupid and kind of random but I still like it. And this list of 10 things I love about Canada is pretty awesome, although I cringe at how bad my photoshop skills were back then.  To this day I still get like 200 views a week on this post and I have no idea why?!

This post of little things I want to remember, and then this one of sorta the same silly little things are kind of presh.

All the ways I am becoming just like my mother , a special ode to my dad on fathers day and a special shout out to my special little sister Hailey.

I graduated from BYU and wrote a post about 'wish I knew then, what I know now' about BYU secrets and college in general.

How Ben and I fell in Love at Chili's Bar and Grill

Everett's Birth Story

These observations of a new mom part one, part two, part three are really fun.  Also in the same category a series of unfortunate events and how my baby is just like a boyfriend.

A memory filled post of my beloved family cabin in Waterton, Alberta.

Maybe my favorite post yet, just after Everett turned one year, the things I had learnt so far about being a mom.  Wish I knew then, what I know now.

I have also really loved doing the 52 project this year: a picture of my child once a week, every week for a year.
