Remember that one time...

Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives.

Holy moly! Who knew today's challenge was going to be one of the most difficult yet!

As I began to search through my archives for posts to feature today, I definitely saw a common theme: We did this... here are some photos. I made this... here are some photos. We went there... here are some photos. I read this... here's what I thought.

Wow, seems a bit dull. 

However, I was eventually able to choose some posts that I would say are some of my favorites, and here's why...

I remember having fun writing about my love affair with books. I have actually gotten a Kindle since I wrote that post, but I pretty much only read it when I'm traveling. And I've also acquired quite a few more "real" books in the meantime, especially since getting my new bookshelves.

I LOVED writing this post about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and revisiting tons of childhood memories. It wasn't super popular and didn't receive a single comment, but it's still one of my favorites.

I wrote this at a time in our lives when we were thinking about making a huge change, and even the process of putting the words out there helped solidify our decision. This post also sparked a lot of conversation... and even debates in some cases!

I chose this one for the list because I still get asked about the whole ridiculous issue sometimes. Yes, it's 100% true that we did have our very own Ugly Naked Guy. I often wonder if the new owner of our condo has noticed her "friend" across the way yet...

And finally, I wanted to take one last opportunity to showcase my wedding photos, because I think they turned out great and I love any chance to re-live that wonderful day. It's definitely a photo-heavy post, but take a gander if you're interested.

As I said, today's Blog Every Day In May challenge definitely opened my eyes as to what "typical" content appears on this blog. Honestly, I probably would have chosen some of the challenge posts from this month as my favorites, but that didn't seem quite fair. Anyway, it's definitely made me re-think this little Internet space I've carved out for us, and wonder what direction I'd like to take it in the future...


  1. I've just read the TMNT and Ugly Naked Guy posts, I'll read the others in a while. I loved your TMNT and would definitely have commented on it if I was reading your blog when you'd commented it. They just remind me of when my brother was younger, I'd sit and watch the cartoon with him, read him the comics and he had the action figures too!
    I can see how Ugly Naked Guy could become creepy, I'd have been closing my blinds too.

  2. Omg about the naked guy!!!! Crazy!!!

  3. hahah you have an ugly naked guy!!! how awesome well not awesome if you have to look at him every now and then so yah maybe not cool...

  4. Your wedding pictures are beautiful. What a gorgeous happy couple you make. I'm with you on books too. I much prefer a proper book in my hands rather than a Kindle....

    1. Thank you so much! We are very happy. :-) And I think I will always prefer "real" books; it's just how I'm wired.


Talk to me, Goose!
