Top 10 Family Posts of 2014

2014 marked House of Fauci’s first blogiversary and I am so thankful for my girl from Prototype MamaΒ for getting me started and helping me along the way. My first year of blogging was quite the learning experience but it was also really fun. I am so thankful and appreciative for everything I have learned and of how strong my blog is going. Since my first year has passed, I decided to compile my top 10 family posts of 2014.

Top 10 Family Posts of 2014

  1. The Birth of my Sweet Lexi: This post shares the birth of my daughter who was born with Tetralogy of Fallot.
  2. Stop the Dinner Time Insanity: A discussion on how I stopped making multiple dinnertime meals for my kids and their parents.
  3. Money Saving Apps and Websites: A list of simple to use apps and websites that will help you save money and make money.
  4. How to Stretch Dollars During the Holidays: This post was intended as a way to save money during the holidays, but these ideas can be used all year long.
  5. Dear Mama June: A topic that deals with child abuse and moms that stand by and allow it to happen.
  6. Is Santa Claus Dead: This post discusses how the Elf on the Shelf may have run Santa out of town.
  7. 10 Reasons It Is Impossible to Lose Weight During the Holidays: A list of fun reason and excuses as to why it’s so hard to lose weight during the holiday season.

  9. Why We Believe in Santa: After reading several posts about discussions regarding whether or not to allow Santa Claus into their home, I decided to write a post that explained why my family believes and will always believe in Santa.
  10. I Married Into a Ready Made Family: This was my very first blog post and it tells the story of how I met my husband and what I gained once we got married.

Like I said above, I loved my first year of blogging, even though it was a little stressful with educating myself on the trials and tribulations of the blog world. I can’t wait to continue my blog journey in 2015 and I hope you’ve enjoyed my top 10 family posts of 2014.
