Last week, my buddy Claire wrote her 7 links post and nominated me to write me own. Yay – I have been loving these posts lately, especially from blogs that I haven’t been reading for a long time, since it gives me the opportunity to go back and see some content I might not have read before! So, without further ado, my 7 links (well – 10 links, because I had a hard time picking just one for a few of these categories. Please don’t hate me):
Love is: the beach
My favorite place in the world…with my favorite person and furbaby…
Florida State Fair: The Pigs
Piglets…only a few days old. Need I say more???
Embracing my inner geek
Apparently a LOT of people are looking for geek chic glasses, because this is easily my most searched, most viewed post. Who knew? Nerds unite!!!
Skinny girls have feelings too!
I don’t know that I can say that this post created controversy, but I was worried it had the potential to. I went back and forth over whether or not to post this one, but I’m glad I did…because skinny girls do have feelings too! Just saying.
Most Helpful – I think there’s a tie on this one, actually…
A Clever Way to Wrap a Wine Bottle
I love giving bottles of wine as gifts, but I always have a hard time figuring out how to wrap them (other than the typical wine bag). I was so proud of myself when I figured out how to wrap a wine bottle with a dishtowel!
How to cook a spaghetti squash
When I started cooking spaghetti squash on a regular basis, I can’t tell you how many people started asking me how to cook one! If you’re wondering how to do it, here’s my step by step tutorial!
A Post Whose Success Surprised Me: again, I had to pick two…sorry…
I was (mistakenly) under the impression that just about everyone has made banana boats! I made them at summer camp. I didn’t realize that I’d be introducing so many of you to a new and easy taste treat!
A Sexy Dress Dilemma
I was hemming and hawing over a pretty blue dress I bought, and I was shocked at the amount of input people had over it! Thank you thank you to all who put in their two cents. I did keep it, by the way…
The Post I Feel Didn’t Get the Attention it Deserved
Wedding in the Desert: Ladies Getting Lovely
I realize that this post probably ended up getting skipped over by many people because it contained personal photos from my friend’s wedding in April…but I do think this one didn’t get enough attention. It’s vain, I know. Anyway – I’m no pro photographer, but I have been trying my hardest to work on my photography skills. Since K’s wedding photographer wasn’t arriving until the afternoon, I spent the morning taking photos of the beautification process, and I am quite proud at how they turned out!
The Post I’m Most Proud Of
Owning my beauty
I’m a girly girl at heart, and I constantly feel the pressure of society/media to wear makeup, style my hair, and the like. This post featured my thoughts on the matter, as well as a series of photos of me…without makeup. I loved hearing everyone’s opinions on the issue as well!
So – there you have it!
Have you written a “7 links” post? Feel free to link it here. And, if you haven’t – here is my official invitation to do so!
