Can you believe we are already in 2018? Last year flew by for me, and I cannot even begin to tell you how ready I was to end that year. There were some really great moments around here the past year, and I wanted to share some of the best posts of 2017, and I say “best” because they were the posts that you all loved the most! These include fashion, kids birthday party ideas, and more.The best posts from 2017, including fashion, kids birthday party ideas, and more. Plus, take an end of the year reader survey to make 2018 the best yet!

I want to know, what would you like to see more of this year? More fashion is already in the works, but I really want to give you all more of what you love to see around here:) This community is my favorite, and I have big plans for 2018 and Motherhood and Merlot.

If you want to check out any of the posts below, just click on the related images. There is also an end of the year survey that I would REALLY appreciate if you would take a second to look over for me. It will help a lot in planning out content for this year.

Best Posts of 2017 (as viewed by you!)

The first thing you loved were the parties for my littles, which I am so glad about because I LOVE to throw a good party:)

Kids Birthday Party Ideas

The “Under the Sea” party we threw for my second daughter was a win, and one of the last parties I threw in 2017. 

This Disney Princess Party is one of my most visited posts, and is constantly getting views and questions on the party itself. It is one of my favorites because we had a real life princess come to visit my oldest. 

Best Beauty & Fashion Posts

This post on the best places to find maternity clothes is the most viewed post on my blog. I update it with the latest and greatest places, because maternity clothes aren’t cheap, and we are all trying to find the best deals!


This post on all things floral print was a win, and the photoshoot was so much fun to do!

This was something new for me this year, and now I am hooked. I love working with Zona Med Spa and I am obsessed with the results. 


*Cheers to making 2018 the year of change, and the best year yet*
