As 2013 draws to a close, it’s time to take a look back at some of our favorite digital moments with First Lady Michelle Obama this year. It’s been a big year (both online and off) for the First Lady, she broke new ground by starting the first official First Lady twitter account (@FLOTUS), Instagram (@MichelleObama) and recording her first Vine. She celebrated the 3rd Anniversary ofLet’s Move! by “mom dancing” with Jimmy Fallon, hanging out with Kelly Ripa and by answering your questions during her first twitter chat. She also continued to welcome thousands of Americans to the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll, Kids’ State Dinner and tours.

 

Check out all these moments and more (including the arrival of a second “first pup”) below or on Storify and be sure to follow the First Lady on Twitter (@FLOTUS) and Instagram (@MichelleObama) for exciting updates and news in the New Year!

  1. Oh my God, I love Barack and Michelle! They are truly America’s Power Couple. I’m going to lose more friends by posting the dancing video on Facebook. :) Thank you, and enjoy your stay.

    • Good afternoon, and remember this, friends don’t get “loss” because you express your political opinions & likes, and they differ from those “friends.” They are not your friends on Facebook.
