Happy New Year!  Just like with my goal-setting posts, I like to look back before I look forward — it’s hard to know where I should be going if I don’t take a minute to figure out what’s working and not working in my life.  Starting last year, I created a mini “Best of the Blog” series that I named “the bobsleddies” after writing out the abbreviation BOBSD (Best of Beauty School Dropout) in my blog planning notebook.  The second annual Bobsleddies awards begin now!

Today I’m sharing the 5 most popular posts of the year. Tomorrow I’ll dig into the archives for some of my other favorite posts.

  1. Freezer Meal Workshop and Wildtree giveaway (giveaway now closed — sorry! — but if you’re interested in freezer meal cooking or starting a freezer meal club, this is a must-read)
  2. Healthy homemade pancake mix (I use this mix almost every weekend.  Saturday = Pancake Day at my house.)
  3. Our next adventure begins (where I announced my husband’s job change and our move)
  4. Business casual capsule wardrobe, Summer 2014 (my obsession paring down my wardrobe to the essentials begins, inspired by Un-fancy and Project 333)
  5. What we’re reading these days, January 2014 (a combo adult & kid book review post)

So, apparently you guys like it when I write about cooking, books, and minimalist fashion.  In 2015, I hope to resurrect my Cooking School series, and I’m still wearing capsule wardrobes, so I will write about that some more, too.  I continued my holiday tradition of borrowing a few books from my mom’s bookshelf over the holidays, so I hope to be able to report back about those books soon.

I also want to give a public Thank you & High Five to my top five commenters.  Tamara, Lisa, Danielle, Jan and Stephanie.  You guys rock.

I know sometimes commenting can be a pain, but I really do love hearing from each and every one of you.  If it weren’t for the interaction with others, I’d probably be doodling and making lists in a notebook instead of publishing all my thoughts here.

I’m excited to start a new year and a fresh calendar.  I’ll share my goals for the year in an upcoming post — it’s okay that I don’t have them totally finalized yet, right?

  1. I was totally thinking the capsule wardrobe would make it in there!
    I think talking about cooking is always a good idea. And yet, I never do. No one wants to hear about how I add too much salt to peppermint bark or how I tried to make french fries once out of baked sweet potatoes, when the recipe called for raw.

    Happy to be a top commenter!

  2. I love this. And I think I’ve read all of those other than the freezer meal one, which I am so interested in.
    Wishing you the very best in 2015, friend!
