There’s a little “project” going around the blogosphere called My 7 Links (you can read more about the rules here). I honestly didn’t think I would get nominated at all, so I was surprised and honored when Kelly at Beneath It Allnominated me to share my links! Kelly writes one of my favorite blogs – she’s cute, a marathoner (she also ran Chicago last year), planning a wedding, and is currently training for a Half Ironman. She’s a stud to say the least! Go check out her blog!
But, before you do that, here are my 7 links:
Most beautiful post: In My Brother’s Shoes
My brother and I might not always get along, but I am still his biggest fan. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life to get to wear his shoes for about 3 minutes. My brother is extremely talented in music and I just wish I was as talented (and smart) as he is!
Most popular post: The Best Homemade Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard
I was actually really surprised to see this as one of my most viewed posts. But, it is also one of my favorite posts and it is definitely a recipe worthy of being recognized!
Most controversial post: The Ear Piercing Debate
I’ve had a lot of different opinions on this topic and it’s nice to hear other people’s opinions on ear piercing their daughters when they are young. I know my husband was thrilled about this post, but I know there are many people who side with him on this. I know how I feel on it still, but that view might change.
Most helpful post: Running Through Pregnancy
There are not many people who can say they were able to run as long during their pregnancy as I have/did (ugh, more on that later this week). Although it is definitely humbling, hard, and uncomfortable, it is definitely possible and, luckily for me, encouraged by my doctor. I hope this can continue to help women realize that it is safe to run through pregnancy, just make sure you know your limits.
A post whose success surprised you: My Pregnancy Secret
Not because it had a ton of pageviews (it didn’t), but because I know announcing my pregnancy on the blog attracted a lot of new readers to my blog! I’ve absolutely LOVE sharing my pregnancy journey on the blog (those posts are my most viewed) and I hope many of you will stick around after my baby comes! I promise, she’ll be the cutest thing ever! ;o)
A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved: Schlafly VIP Tour
My husband, Matt, actually was my first guest poster on my blog and I think he wrote a great review of Schlafly. I think Matt would be a much more interesting and better blogger than I am, so I just feel he should get the credit I think he definitely deserves.
Most proud of: Embracing the Changes
As my pregnancy has progressed, I’ve definitely changed my view of healthy eating along with the way I view my changing body. Pregnancy has humbled me and made me see myself as the beautiful person I truly am – even if I can’t run fast anymore or am not as thin as I used to be. The changes my body is going through is definitely worth the outcome in October!
The 5 people I nominate are(and of course, I think you should go check out their blogs because I think they are awesome):
