Happy 2020! Can you believe we are already a week and a half in? Every year since I started blogging in 2015, I’ve done a top 10 posts at the beginning of the following year. There’s something about a top 10 list that I just love! So sit back, take a minute to browse through the list and maybe you’ll find a post you’ve never seen before that interests you.
*NOTE* Each post is linked to the original post, so if you want to save one to look back at later, I highly recommend clicking through to the original post so you don’t have to take the extra step when you come back here. It will open up in a new tab so you won’t lose your place in this post about the top 10 posts of 2019.
Here we go!
This was such a fun DIY project! One year later and it still looks amazing in the kids bathroom. If you are looking to do something a little bit custom as far as towel racks go, but don’t want to spend a lot of money, this project is for you.
Another popular post was how to install contact paper in your bathroom to update the space. We did this in the same bathroom as the cabinet door towel rack and it is still going strong. Using a patterned contact paper in the drawers and inside the cabinet made a huge different and only cost me about $5 and a little bit of time and patience.
I have made and decorated each of my kids’ smash cakes for when they turn one and while they are all similar, they are also all a little bit different, which I love. In my tutorial, I share tips for getting great looking smash cakes that are so cute when they are finished.
Believe it or not, all the pieces to this LEGO car kit (and the storage that goes with it) are from Dollar Tree! If you have a kid who loves to play with LEGOs but haven’t found a way to make it work when you are in the car, definitely check this post out. My kids loved it, especially on our 10+ hour drive to Disneyland last fall.
You know those projects that turn out exactly the way you picture in your mind? Well, this shirt was one of them! Using glow in the dark HTV (heat transfer vinyl) really made this shirt stand out. This would be a fun shirt to make and wear for any type of galaxy or space themed party, as well as a New Years party. I’m planning on making more projects this year using glow in the dark HTV so keep an eye out as we move closer to summer.
We took our family to Disneyland last fall and it was so fun! While getting autographs and pictures isn’t necessarily our first priority, I wanted to make sure we had something Disney-themed and durable for the characters to sign. This autograph book came out so darling and I even share the SVG file with you so you can make your own as well.
My husband and I went to Kauai last June for our 10 year anniversary and it did not disappoint! This post about where to eat (and not eat) while visiting Kauai will be a big help to you as you plan your trip. Because, come on. Great food can make a great trip even better, don’t you think? (Also, if you’ve been to Kauai already and have a recommendation that I haven’t listed, I’d love you to leave a comment on that post and let me know what it is!)
I started bottling homemade applesauce about seven years ago. The best thing to do is wait until apples are in season (in the fall) and then buy them up and make a bunch of homemade applesauce to store and eat year round. It is, quite literally, apples, water and a little bit of lemon juice. That’s it. If you have been interested in bottling, but don’t know where to start, homemade applesauce is it! (I also have a great tutorial for how to bottle raspberry jam.)
Feeding big groups of people can get really expensive. We regularly host family dinners at our home for up to 20+ people and I’ve learned over the years how to make great tasting main dishes that don’t cost a ton of money. Whether you are serving family, friends, your kids friends or just want to make a bigger meal and save the leftovers, this post is exactly what you need.
And the #1 post of 2019 is…
My kids will literally devour these applesauce muffins in 24 hours if I let them. They only take about 20 minutes from start to finish (including baking time) and they are perfect to grab in the morning before work or school. We also eat them with dinner. I love that they are moist, but not overly sweet. I make them with my homemade applesauce but store bought works great too!
