I thought it would be fun to pull the top 10 popular posts of 2014. Interestingly, some of these weren’t from 2014, but are still popular (as in, most visit). It might be interesting to look at the all time most popular, too…maybe on the 10th anniversary of the blog, which happens in February, I think!
I present to you the top 10 most popular posts in 2014!
Our accidental home birth aka the unplanned unassisted home birth
I still can’t believe it happened, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! It was pretty long, so it came in two parts. I was nice and part one actually went through her arrival, and part two was the Firefighters, EMTs and our ambulance ride. Parts one and two were in the top ten.

This Crockpot taco/burrito meat gets cooked at least twice a month in our house, if not more. Everybody loves it. Everybody we shared the recipe with loves it. It won’t disappoint. We enjoy it in leftovers, too. I’ve been known to put it in my eggs for breakfast, too.

Everybody was taking pictures of their kids on the front porch, by the bus, at school for the first day. I have done all the way from pre-K to 5th grade, but if prompted, I could probably do the additional grades! These back to school signs are great for those pictures. Once you download, you can even add a date to it.

Breakfast and Pajamas a First Birthday Party Theme
E’s first birthday party was actually in 2013, and despite the pin counter showing zero pins, it’s been very popular. The breakfast and pajama party was a huge hit both in person and on the blog. I highly recommend this type of party for little kids. It was so much more relaxed and still a ton of fun. And, everybody loved the food!
2014 has been a pretty darn good year for our family and the blog. I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings. And, I can’t believe that little old Really, Are You Serious? a baby I birthed in graduate school will be 10!
Happy New Year to you and yours! What was your favorite of 2014?
