Time to toot.

It’s that time.  Toot time.  As in, time to toot my own horn Winking smile

Kelly, who blogs at Foodie Fresh, nominated me to participate in a fun game (of sorts) that’s sweeping the blogosphere.  It’s called “My 7 Links” and the goal is to unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.


1) Blogger is nominated to take part
2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
5) And so it goes on!
6) We’ll be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on our blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links

#1—>  *My Beautiful Post *     This IS a food blog after all Smile

#2—>  *My Most Popular Post*     Overnight Oats For Dummies.  So many people just do not understand the OO concept.  Whenever someone asks me what I’m eating, I always preface it with “OK this is going to sound really gross but…”  Smile

#3—>  *Most Controversial*  I tried to recall a controversial post, and honest to god I could not think of one.  This makes sense given my hatred for conflict.  So, in lieu of inciting anger here’s this post that is SOMEWHAT controversial… at least my brother might think so Winking smile –> Two Random Things

#4—>  *Most Helpful*  I love to reflect on this post when things get crazy at work, and it applies to ALL jobs, not just taxes:  10 Tips for Tax Season. Given that I’m rolling into fall busy season, this is an especially appropriate time to remember to bust our my daily happy dance.  Shout out to all my old coworkers in Ohio Smile

#5—>  *Most Surprise Success*  Maker’s Mark Bananas Foster Bread.  Not sure why, but this get A LOT of googlage.  Well that and “pizza porn,” which is now officially the third most common search that links people to my blog.  Oh dear.

#6—>  *Not Enough Attention*  Words of wisdom from my mom.  You can NEVER get enough of those.  NEVER.

#7—>  *Most Proud*  Hello Cat, please exit the bag.  The result of EVERYONE and their mother assuming I was moving to CLT for a boy.  I don’t know why, but every time someone would make that insinuation I would literally go red with rage.  From family, to coworkers, to a PARTNER at my old employer, it didn’t matter.  RED RUM… RED RUM…………….

Lovely ladies I’ve nominated to participate:  Leashie Loo from All Kinds of Hungry,  Andrea from Can You Stay for Dinner, Jamie from Bibliophiled Away, Jaci from Engaged and Running, and Shanna from Shanna Like Banana!

  1. people always question big decisions like that, and sometimes I don’t think they realize that it has a negative effect. When my boyfriend and I moved in together we got all kinds of input, most of which was unsolicited. But as long as you do what makes you happy, that’s all that matters 🙂
    Now I feel all warm and fuzzy.
