my seven links

July 26, 2011

I know most of you have seen this fun little post hopping around the blog world and Julie, Heather and Jocelyn all nominated me to so let’s get to it!

Most Beautiful Post

I think my most beautiful post was the one where I wrote a letter to my younger self. It was called Dear 15 Year Old Kelly and it was a very honest letter of all the things I would go back and tell myself; all the things I would do differently and the things that would turn out okay. It was a hard letter to write because it forced to me to be extremely honest with myself.

Most Popular Post

The post I wrote called I Want To Be A Mom has been my most popular post. I openly discussed mine and Keith’s fertility problems and how much I wanted to be a mom one day. As an update…we are still trying to figure it all out. Fertility treatment is EXPENSIVE when you are self employed and have individual health insurance. We’re doing all we can do within our budget right now and practicing…a lot! ha!

Most Controversial Post

I haven’t really had many controversial posts but I did write a post called The Heavy Religion Post in which I talked about my religious views. Keith and I are Jewish and while most people really respected my opinions and beliefs I did get a few emails from people wanting to “show me the way to Jesus” and that wasn’t so fun. 🙂

Most Helpful Post

Ironically I think the most helpful post I ever wrote for me and for my readers was called Rest In Peace and it was when Keith and I made the painful decision to put our dog, Kodi, to sleep. It helped me to write out my feelings and grieve and a lot of you wrote in stories about your own experiences with losing a pet. I like to think it helped all of us.

Surprise Success

I was surprised at how much you guys were excited that I returned to blogging after I took some time away. I called it The Brett Favre of the Blog World. I took a much-needed break after originally having a blog called Healthy Living With Kelly. I ended that blog after about a year when I suffered a terrible finger accident that forced me to slow down and reevaluate what was important to me in my life.

Not Enough Attention

My yeast-free pizza dough is really good, easy and it doesn’t use yeast so there isn’t any rising and waiting time. It is perfect when you want homemade pizza but don’t want to spend a lot of time actually making homemade pizza. Go check it out! 😉

Most Proud

My five wedding anniversary. I still can not believe that I have been married to Keith for five years! He is the man of my dreams and I am truly a lucky lucky girl.

And to keep the 7 links going I am going to tag a few of my favorite bloggers to do this post!

Kelly @ My Verbal Vomit

Katie @ Yes I Want Cake

Amy @ Second City Randomness

    Yeast-free pizza dough sounds attention-worthy to me!

  3. July 26, 2011 8:26 am

    Love love!! I just read “Dear 15 Year Old Kelly” and I loved it!

  4. July 26, 2011 8:32 am

    Thanks for the nomination! 🙂

    I’m Jewish too. I haven’t gotten any of those emails…yet! Maybe my readers don’t really know. I’ve only thrown in a few Mazel Tov’s 😉

    I’m totally going to use that pizza dough recipe. The only reason I don’t make my own dough is because I refuse to wait for it to rise. 🙂

    Ummm . . . and I can’t believe people emailed you trying to change your religion. That’s a little nutty if you ask me.

    Thanks for the tag! I’m with Amy, I was very happy when you returned to blogging.

  8. July 26, 2011 9:50 am

    Kelly thanks for nominating me!

    Kelly honestly what I love about your blog so much is reading about how much you love and adore Keith. He is such a lucky guy!

      Thanks Holly. That really means a lot to me. I do love him a lot and I know I talk about Keith all the time. Somtimes I feel like it is off-putting so thanks for the reassurance. 🙂

    #1 – Yay for tagging me!!! I love these kinds of posts. I’m in Odessa right now so probably can’t get to it until tonight but am so excited!
    #2 – Chris Hemsworth (Thor) should play any superhero/action start – seriously – I could die a happy girl looking at his face and abs – ha! Thor is SO good, and I know you like Natalie Portman too. LOVED IT!

    I still can’t think about your post about Kodi without tearing up. It was amazing!

  12. July 26, 2011 12:56 pm

    Ooo I haven’t read your pizza dough recipe! Doing that now! WIll have to try it! Waiting for dough to rise is always my deterrant from making my own crust!

  13. July 26, 2011 2:05 pm

    I love all of the above posts! I was really touched by the one about Kodi. My heart still goes out to you.

  14. July 26, 2011 8:32 pm
