My 5 FAVORITE Blog Posts

Tell Me What You Want... ...what you really, really want.

Am I dating myself here? Were you a Spice Girls fan back in the day? I can't say I was, but that song really sticks in my head after I hear it.

Anyway! Today I want to share with you five of my all time favorite blog posts I've written. Now, of course I love the ones I've written about the boys and their milestones, or the ones I wrote about our wedding anniversary, etc., but today these are just the ones I'm really just proud of because of the photos in them, the ideas included and some of them also happen to be the most popular posts on my blog.

So here they are, my favorite posts from my blog, in particular order...

IKEA LATT Children's Table Hack - This is not only one of the most popular posts on my blog (thanks, Pinterest), but it is also a personal favorite of mine. When I tackled the task of painting that table for Owen I never thought it would turn out better than I expected, and I was so happy to share the step-by-steps!

My Grocery Shopping Strategy - A lot of the time my favorite blog posts to write are the same kind of posts I like to read on other people's blogs, and one of my favorite things to read is how other people tackle day-to-day stuff. And of course, I take a lot of pride in how I've simplified my grocery shopping / meal planning strategy, so this was a fun one to share.

CurriOdyssey Review - I love exploring new places with my family, from theme parks to open spaces and everywhere in between, and being able to document our experience is always a huge bonus for me. This review of CurriOdyssey is one of my favorite "adventure" posts because we had a membership to the museum for years and Owen and I spent many long afternoons there watching snakes and playing with the fog machine, so we have many great memories there!

10 Things I've Never Done, But Would Like to Do - This post isn't really anything too special, but I liked sharing a random list of facts about myself that you'd otherwise not know. And it got me thinking too! This one goes in the category of blog posts I like to read about other people too, and it got a lot of comments from you guys so I know it was fun and interesting.

Carrot Cupcakes! - This recipe is the very first recipe I shared on my blog way back in 2010 -- and it is actually really embarrassing! My editing, food staging and photography skills have improved enormously since then, and although I am tempted to deleted it all together, I won't. I kind of like being able to look back and see how far my recipe posts have come.

Now that I've shared with you my favorites... I'd love to know YOUR favorite TYPE of posts to see on my blog. Do you like seeing lifestyle posts about what we've been up to lately, recipes, family / kid activities, menu ideas, etc?

I'd love your input here, because I'm in the process of trying to dial in on a direction I want this blog to take and your opinions mean so much to me as I make these decisions!
