Happy Birthday Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at the Broke and the Bookish blog. Each week a different topic is introduced and it is fun to see what everyone writes each week. Check out their blog for more information.

This week we talk about our favorite Top Ten Tuesday Topics from the last five years. I haven’t been doing this meme for five years, but I have done it for a couple of years so this post is my favorite topics from those I’ve done.
