Top 10 from 2011

2011 was a big year in Mommydom. I saw my little project take off from just family and friends peeking into our lives long distance, to several hundred visitors a day.

First, I want to say thank you. It means a lot that you appreciate my writing, crafts and recipes. Its encouragement and inspiration to keep doing what I love.

And drumroll, please...the top 10 moments in Mommydom from the past year:

10. Who would have thought a rant about a Friendly's restaurants closing would have touched a nerve, but it did.

9. Not setting New Year's Resolutions was a great way to end the year, and start a new one.

8. There are a lot of crazy Replacements fans out there, many of whom read my review of Color Me Obsessed, a really great documentary about one of the most important bands in the history of rock.

7. My welcome door sign was hugely popular too!

6.  People really loved the Candy Cane Manicure I posted in early December.

5. My tutorial on beaded necklaces was a huge hit too!

4. The Christmas party planner helped make a lot of holiday entertaining easier for folks

3. I am deeply moved at how a hissy fit ranting about living with autism went viral.

2. Thanks to Tater Tots and Jello, my New Years Eve party planner was a huge hit!

and the number one article in Mommydom was...

1. My Quinoa burritos and cilantro lime rice. It was even featured in our local newspaper in November.

Thanks again, all who make this sucessful. There are some great new things coming next year as well!

Happy 2012
