7 Links

As you may have noticed I took a bit of a blogging break for a month (or so). It wasn’t intentional, but things got crazy at work and that, combined with finals, gave very little free time and energy to blog. I have to thank Amy at The Nifty Foodie for tagging me in her 7 links post. I gave me the kick in the rump I needed to blog again.

So here are 7 links to posts I’ve done that I think you should check out…

#1 Most Beautiful - The Birdie Details
I loved the way the details came together at our wedding. When I went flipping through all my old posts, for this post, I loved looking through our wedding posts again. It reminded me how pretty, without being to bird themed, our wedding day turned out.

#2 Most Popular – Margarita Cupcakes
This cupcake recipe is BY FAR the best, most moist, recipe I have found. I need to spend sometime trying to make these gluten free, because they are a HUGE hit. I get a least 50 hits a week from this recipe.

#3 Most Controversial - Tricking our Wedding Guests
This is actually a post a wrote for Weddingbee. The start time on our wedding invitations was 30 mins earlier than the time our wedding was actually going to begin. Several readers were upset that we would trick our guests like that and make them wait that long considering many people arrive to weddings early. I could (and still do) see where they were coming from, but knowing our friends and family, I stick by our decision to have people arrive 30 mins early.

#4 Most Helpful - How to Make an Inspiration Board
Also a post I wrote for Weddingbee, but helpful none the less. When I first started wedding planning and blogging, I saw all these awesome inspiration boards and wanted to badly to make my own. I didn’t (and still don’t) own Photoshop, or anything fancy like that, so needed a way to do it with the software I already owned or downloaded for free.

#5 A Post Whose Success Inspired Me  - Reverb - Prompt 1
ReverbPrompt1 The comments I got from this post inspired me to fully embrace Reverb. It also gave me confidence in myself.

#6 A Post I Didn’t Feel Got the Attention is Deserved – My Christmas Green Beans

This is where I toot my own horn, because you guys has no idea how good these beans are. They take longer than cooking green beans should, but OMGoodness they are tasty!

#7 Most Proud Of – Five for Friday SeriesHubs
When I started the blogging about planning our wedding, way back when, I started Five for Friday posts – posting five things I love about (or reasons I love) Hubs, every Friday. I’m proud that for the most part I’ve kept this up for the past 2 years and counting. I’m most proud that I’ve inspired other bloggers, that I love, to do Five for Friday posts as well! Other bloggers like: Jesstagirl & c'est law vie!

Have you participated in the 7 things blog post series? If so, please share your link with me in the comments, I’d love to read yours. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? I’m tagging you!

I've seen the 7 Links post around, but I haven't gotten involved. I might just make some time to do so. Thanks for sharing!

I've been doing a Five for Friday too. I was really inspired by the idea of remembering the little reasons I love my boyfriend! I'm so happy you're proud that we've all taken it on as well, I was a little worried I'd offend you but always made sure to show others where I got the idea :-)

I'm so happy you started doing your Five for Friday posts. My husband—literally—checks my blog the second he gets up on Friday to see what I wrote. And even though it's harder to write them when he's gone (deployed), I know it keeps his morale up out there. You rock :)
