Top ten posts of 2013 + $750 in GIVEAWAYS!

2013 December 30
by Emily Hill

Can you believe 2013 is nearly over? I swear just yesterday I was taking down last year’s Christmas decorations and yet here I am doing it again. This year was definitely one for the record books, from baptisms and Utah state high school swim championships to a trip to L.A. for American Idol Hollywood Week (#IdolTweethearts recap coming soon!) and a recipe contest ending in a spring 2014 trip to Tuscany.

Those last two happened in December—holy crap, what a busy month it’s been!


Top Ten Posts of 2013

As usual, I was curious as to what the most popular blog posts were for 2013. Some of my guesses were spot on (cowboy salsa and iced oatmeal cookies) and others were a bit surprising (baked brie and minestrone soup). I’ve compiled a list according to Google Analytics and have listed them below.


Top 10 Recipe Posts 2013

To make sure this year goes out with a bang, I’m hosting a $50 Amazon gift card giveaway for my ITRML readers. And to make things even more festive, 14 other blogging friends are also featuring their top 10 posts of the year and $50 gift card giveaways!

15 bloggers x $50 giveaway each = $750. Just look at me do the math!

Grab a cup of hot cocoa and some leftover holiday treats and settle down for a little “me” time as you check out my top ten posts and enter the giveaway.

You so totally deserve it.

    I moved to New York in 2010 to marry my now husband. Due to financial reasons I was unable to get back to England to visit my family. In May of this year, after seriously saving money, my mum and my brother flew over to visit. There were lots of tears, but also lots of laughter :) taking them for a tour of New York for the first time was amazing.

    My best moment of 2013 was when my roller derby league voted me not only my team’s MVP blocker, but also LEAGUE MVP. I felt so loved and appreciated by what has become my second family. At the same time I felt gratitude because there are so many other people that were equally deserving of both awards. Derby is something that I rarely blog about but has enriched my life in so many ways.
