Since it’s the last day of 2013, I feel obligated to join with the masses and share a Top 10 Greatest Hits type of list with my faithful readers. But I hate going with the crowd, so I’m doing a Top 13 Favorite Posts list to coincide with the 2013 year.
The past year has been an awesome one for Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy. I’ve not only grown in stats but I feel like the blogs taking on a life of its own. I still love sharing goofy, silly things that me, Allie and the kids are doing, but I also love sharing all sorts of reviews and especially offering up better and better giveaways each month. I’m even making a decent chunk of change from the blog courtesy of ads, affiliate links and sponsored posts. It’s far from enough to live on, but it definitely helps us pay off some of our bills, so a big fat thank you to everyone out there. Every single page view, link clicked and online purchase (through an affiliate link) is appreciated far more than you know.
Anyways, my all-time favorite post ever (so far) is still Spider-Man, My Kids and the Kissing Episode, and it’s from 2012, so it won’t make the list. But definitely give it a read if you haven’t already.
This year’s Top 13 list is made up of my favorite posts of the year. These aren’t necessarily the most-read, most-commented or most-controversial posts. But they’re ones that either meant a lot to me, were a blast putting together or involved me getting hugged by my Twitter crush Kristen Bell. So take a look, enjoy the read and thank you once again for all of your comments and support! I’m hoping 2014 keeps the awesomeness going!

I’m a new reader, but I just went through all your highlighted posts, thanks for sharing!
I haven’t watched the walking dead yet but I know so many people who love it, I’ll eventually get caught up hahah!
Excellent list. And now I want Krabby Patty Cupcakes. 🙁
I did not want andrea to get killed off the show! Yes she did annoy me in the beginning of third season (couldn’t stand her) however by the end of the season I was on her side again!
I was so pissed when they killed her off… I’m kind of getting bored with the show. I hope the second half of this season finally brings some new material to the show.
I loved the post about Andrea…. she was one of the few that I was actually glad to see go… well, and the governor of course 🙂
I have a family filled with nerds so your blog calls to me…lol. We’re HUGE The Walking Dead fans and my 10-year old daughter cried at the mid-season finale because she didn’t want to wait until February to watch it again. You can bet she watched the marathon on New Years. I couldn’t stand Andrea either. I think her death (un-scene) was too noble for her.
Hey, Lisa! Thanks for the comment and any Nerd Family is a family of mine! 🙂 My kids haven’t watched the Walking Dead yet. Except for Plants vs. Zombies, they haven’t seen any other zombies yet. We just got through the Lord of the Rings trilogy though, so I feel like I’ve earned my Geek Stripes.
Oh dear, that Spiderman episode is weird. Not weird on a relative scale to other cartoons from its time, but weird within the otherwise-great show.
Looks like a great year! Its funny, the Krabby Patties one is the one I remember most, too! 🙂
I was happy to see Andrea go too!
Looks like your 2013 was fantastic! I look forward to hearing more about 2014 coming up for all of us!
Krabby Patty Cupcakes were my favorite!!
So many of those make me laugh just from the titles alone! I wish you tons of continued success in 2014!
Hah. Thanks, Shell!
Love those Krabby Cakes. We are Spongebob fans over here and those would be a hit at our house.
I think I might need to make a list of my favorite posts.
My favorite was the Super Mario Piranha Plant Costume, though I am no where near talented enough to pull it off!
You totally lost me at the twinkies! I’ve never been able to stand them!
I loved checking out all of these posts. Gah, I hated Andrea. Those faces she made! Love the secret message! 🙂
You have such an awesome sense of humor Andrew!! LOL!!!
How did I miss your post about Andrea? Off to check it out. So glad she got the ax…or the bite rather. 😉
Ummm…anything that starts with the word Nerdgasm… Yep.
KRABBY PATTYS! Man, my boys (son AND Husband) are all over that one!
I have to say that secret message has to win hands down. Adorbs!
Haa haa! You are so funny! I like #9 “Remove Hair from Chest.” Nice list. Looks like you had a good year. Lol. May 2014 be even better. Happy New Year!!
I will admit it was all about the Crabby Patty Cupcakes this year for me 🙂
And those are some pretty amazing posts! I know my kids loved the Krabby Patty cupcakes.
My kids want those crabby cakes so bad after I showed them. So awesome. Great posts.
PS I love the hidden Twisted Sister!!!!
100 points to House Borak!
Boo. Andrea was hot.
Hah. Thanks for the comment, Jared! What type of games do you mean: board games or video games? I’ve got another fun USAopoly giveaway coming up in the next few days!
Thanks for the giveaways. Do more games next year!
