2013 Top Posts + Over $800 in Giveaways!

Two Thousand Fourteen is knocking on the door, and I can’t help but feel like it’s one of those party guests that misread the invitation and arrived while I’m still unshowered and hurrying to vacuum the living room. Anyone else feel this way? So when a group of our blogging buddies suggested we do a Top Posts of 2013 blog hop and giveaway — $800+ in gift cards are up for grabs!! — it seemed like the perfect way to bring some closure to 2013. As I was combing through our archives to pull out my favorite posts for our recap, I was excited about everything we have accomplished in 2013, and even if I’m still in in my pajamas, 2014 is going to be great!

    as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?

    Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

  81. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
    you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.
