Happy 2015, friends! We enter this new year full of thankfulness. Thankful for dear friends, wonderful family, our sweet boys, food on our table, and so much more. So we want to kick off 2015 with a great big THANK YOU. Thank you for hanging with us through the past year. Thank you for sharing our planning and trying, our success and our major fails. Seriously. Thank you.
We can't wait to see what 2015 has in store, and we have a few new projects planned for you guys! But before we start the new, we took at look at our top posts from the last year. Some of the most popular posts really surprised us! Here's a peek at our top posts of 2014, followed by most popular of all time. If you're looking for a new project in 2015, this is a great place to start!
So let's start with the top new posts of 2014:

#2 -The tutorial for how we hacked our Ikea Kura bed tent during the boys' room makeover.
#3 - The wooden animal treehouse we made for Big Brother.
#4 - My easy baby doll ring sling tutorial.
