Am I the only one that’s like wait, what happened to 2016? I mean really, how has this year already come and gone? I want to thank you all, seriously, from the bottom of my heart for reading Sincerely, Sweetpea. I can proudly say that it’s not just my Mom reading this little ole blog of mine anymore! Because of you, I get to do what I love everyday, so seriously, thank you! Sincerely, Sweetpea readers are the bomb.com! LOL
Top Posts of 2016:
Can y’all believe it? My post where I announced my Christmas printable collection is THE number one post of 2016! I published this post only a month ago and it immediately topped the charts! Honestly, this is so flattering and I’m so glad you all liked it! I had a blast designing this collection and putting the look book together. You could say I’m a little proud of it LOL.
Next in line, the reveal of our bedroom refresh! Again, I’m so so happy that you all liked this post as much as you did. Because I had just redone our room back in March and already felt like I needed to make some changes, I really wanted to get this time right. The night before publishing that post, I scrolled through time and time again questioning it, looking at it with a critical eye, and I even asked my husband to look at it to make sure it was alright. I’m proud to say since the reveal, I’ve not changed anything in our room!
Can we just talk about that flower arrangement for a minute? A year ago, I hadn’t the slightest clue about arranging flowers. I wanted to be good at it so bad, but it just wasn’t clicking with me. So, this just goes to show, if you want to be good at something, just practice, practice, practice! Anyway, it means a lot that you all enjoyed this post so much because it’s definitely not your typical Fall decor post. Y’all know, I love, can’t live without pink, so it felt right to incorporate it into my Fall decor and y’all were definitely receptive to it! Just like my girl Dorothy Draper would say “If it looks right, it is right.”
I love this space so much, I’m so glad you all liked it too! We spent all summer out here and this DIY wire basket garden shelf came in handy as I tried my hand at gardening for the very first time. I’ll admit, I wasn’t very successful at the whole herb garden thing, in fact, these died like two days after this picture was taken, but I’m happy to say I harvested about 10 green peppers and 6 or so squash. Not too shabby for my first time!
five | How to do a Budget Friendly Wedding
You all are girls after my own heart! I have to say, keeping wedding costs down was such a fun challenge for me and obviously, you all are about that life as well!
six | Easter Table for Four
This was definitely 2016’s first big post! I have to say, I can’t wait to see what I come up with for this year’s Easter table because it’s going to be hard to top this one. I just love it so much!
Not only was my modern glam chair redo one of your favorite posts on the blog, but the before and after picture on Instagram went bananas! It received countless likes and comments within minutes! I think it’s safe to say y’all dig a good before and after!
I hope y’all have a fabulous New Year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for Sincerely, Sweetpea! Linking up here, here, here, here, here, and here!
