15 Posts You Would Have Loved--If I Had Written Them

delaware farm
My kids hanging out in Delaware, where we're currently staying. (Yet another post I'm sure to be delinquent on soon...)

Recently, one of my blogging idols--Ilana of MommyShorts--wrote a genius post. She owned up to all the blog posts she hasn't gotten around to writing, and it really rang true for me since I'm also verrry behind in blogging about my own life. So many things have happened this year (and, erm, last year) that I just haven't gotten around to blogging about yet. 

This is annoying for many reasons, not least of which is that I carry around so much guilt about it! I am constantly stressing about the blog posts I need to write. (Note: In nearly every case it boils down to something lame like me already having the photos--but having way too many--and not wanting to edit them. Pathetic!) 

So here's a few of the many things that I've been delinquent about blogging about. Tell me which ones sound most interesting to you, and I'll try to tackle those first!

Our Visit to Disney Aulani in Hawaii

Spring Break in Disneyland (um, this was 2017...EEK!)

The Best Parenting Advice I Never Took

My Son's 5th Birthday Party (Looney Tunes meets Cinco de Mayo!)

My Daughter's 8th Birthday Party (a.k.a. The Year I Finally Gave Up Stressing Over Pinterest-Perfect Parties and Succumbed to SkyZone)

Why We Had to Say Goodbye to Our Long-Time Nanny

Why We Decided To Get An Au Pair (And, Yes, She Lives With Us!)

I Sat Through A Taylor Swift Concert In The Pouring Rain Because I Love My Daughter (Ok, I Loved The Concert, Too)

I Survived Whole 30 (Part Two)

I Tried This Fat-Melting Treatment On My Tummy--And It Worked!

I Got Custom-Made Sandals at Amanu and I'm Obsessed!

TK More Great Books To Read Right Now

5 More Podcasts You Need to Start Listening To

Our Backyard Transformation

Our West Coast Road Trip


So, tell me: Which ones should I start with?

I love this so much. I am so behind in blogging about stuff that it's not even funny. I am still catching up from last spring.

Unknown said...

This is interesting. I borrowed several post ideas from your amazing creativity.

Thank you.

Terri Steffes said...

Backyard transformation, fat melting, podcasts... hope that helps! Great idea, and very motivating!

GiGi Eats said...

Best Parenting Advice - because I am going to be one soon and I need all the tips I can get - LOL!

candy said...

Something here for everyone to read and catch up on. Think we all are really behind on writing what is going on in our lives, so don't feel so bad.

What a great list! I'd enjoy ready about Disney Aulani. I've always wanted to go. We love Disney! Good luck with writing the posts. I know life can get busy.

SimplyTasheena said...

This is such a wonderful list. All of the posts sound pretty amazing. I would love to hear about your visit to Disney Aulani in Hawaii.

I would like to hear more about your Whole30 experience. We have done 2 rounds of Whole30, and they were both very different. I like reading about others' experiences with this.

Marysa said...

I love travel posts, because they help out people trying to make decisions about their vacations. I, too, have a long list of things to blog about! Mom advice is always good, too.

Nikki said...

I probably have a list of 100+ ideas that I'll eventually get around to writing...or not, lol. I would love to see your backyard transformation! I need some inspiration for my own back yard.

Sarah Bailey said...

I want to read them all! The first on about Disney Aulani in Hawaii sounds amazing though - I would love to read that.

Heather Jones said...

I would love to read the best parenting advice you never took and why you needed to let your nanny go. They all sound really good, but those two peaked my interest.

Cathy Mini said...

Your visit to Disney is more interesting to me. That place is great for me.

Chubskulit Rose said...

I haven't been in Hawaii but it is one of those places I would love to visit. Lucky you! We have been to Disney World but not in Disney Land.

Lisa said...

I feel like that all the time! Like, something will pop in my head: "Oh, that would make for a fabulous post!" Then, when it comes time to writing, I am all out of words and ideas.

LisaLisa said...

Wow, what a nice list! Count me onboard for I have so many post in draft I started and have yet to finish writing. I would love to see your West Coast Road Trip, I bet it's very interesting!!

Unknown said...

That's a great list of posts. That "
I Sat Through A Taylor Swift Concert In The Pouring Rain Because I Love My Daughter" one is quite interesting.

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

I'd love to read all of them! I think this is a great list, and the birthday party one especially would be great to read! - Jeanine

Brianne said...

These are great topics. I'm thinking I'd love to see you write something on good books!

Terri Beavers said...

They all sound very interesting to me. I'd really love to hear about "Why We Had to Say Goodbye to Our Long-Time Nanny" if you have a chance to post about it.
