As I perused all the “7 Links” posts going around, I secretly hoped that I wouldn’t get tagged. I know, I’m just soooo popular, I have to worry about people dying to know more about me!
False. That’s not why. I was nervous because I’m just a baby blogger at this point. I have a lot to say, that much is true, but sometimes I still wake up in disbelief that anyone other than my mom and best friend even read these words that fall from my fingertips onto this glaring white page…every day…
However I’m also a huge pushover (perhaps I shouldn’t have given up that little tidbit) and who am I to turn down the opportunity to talk about what we all know is my favorite topic….
So when the lovely Allie tagged me I couldn’t refuse. Aaaand here goes. And if you’re totally sick of reading these well I don’t blame you and I promise there will be a super funny joke at the end if you want to just skip ahead.
Love At First Sight
I don’t know what else to say but this was the one post I wrote that made me get a little teary-eyed when I wrote it. We’ve been going through tough stuff with our little man (more on that another time), and for some reason, writing this post was how I dealt with it.
What I’ve Learned from TV
Not only was this the most fun post I’ve written, but I had so much fun reading the comments and reminiscing about what can only be described as great freaking TV.
Dining Out Vegetarian: Part I
My whole reasoning for doing a vegetarian challenge was so that I could give my body a quick break from meat and to try and prove I could do it. Plain and simple. Had I known the fury that would be unleashed upon me by everyone in my life, I would have maybe thought twice. “WHY??” and “You’re crazy.” and “I don’t get it…” were all phrases I heard regularly, which was not only annoying, but also made the whole thing more dramatic than it needed to be. However, I didn’t really get angry until I went out to dinner one night and found out there was absolutely nothing vegetarian-friendly on the menu and got a free side of sass from the waitress.
Work Out Burn Out
I’ve always been honest about the fact that some days I don’t feel like doing anything but watching Real Housewives marathons and drinking a glass or five of wine. So opening up about my struggles with working out not only made me feel better, but I really hope that other people were able to relate and realize that it’s ok to take a day (or week, or month!) off if that’s what your body is telling you that you need.
Baked Mac & Cheese With Cauliflower
Dude… I just really like mac & cheese. But apparently so do a lot of people, because I get multiple hits a day for this post, and I’m just happy more people are able to experience it’s amazingness. (Yep that’s a word.)
The Epic Battle of Jessica vs. the Walk-In Closet
This was maybe one of the first really honest posts I’ve ever written. I have a lot of insecurities and issues with my body-image (which I know, most girls do) but I don’t really like talking about it. I wrote it early on in my blogging infancy so not a lot of people read it. And if I can be honest- it’s worth checking out to see my completely adorable wedding shoes alone.
I Wish I Was a Little Bit Taller (Or I Wish I Was a Runner)
I have a hard time admitting I’m not good (or the best) at something. I’m very competitive, especially when it comes to anything physical. I can’t explain it, but all I can tell you is I love winning, but I hate losing more. Admitting my struggles with running not only felt completely liberating, but it actually helped me with my running. I physically felt some of the weight lift off my shoulders that had been slowing me down.
So that’s all folks. Ready for that joke? Guess what: THERE IS NO JOKE. If you actually skipped this whole post to scroll to the bottom, than you don’t deserve a joke.
For those of you who stuck with it, I send you a million kisses.*
*please don’t expect kisses in the mail. They don’t travel well.
Also I choose not to tag anyone, as pretty much everyone I know has probably been tagged and either participated or has chosen not to. And if you haven’t been tagged and want to- tag! You’re it.
Have a great weekend!
