I'm sure by now you've seen this going around blog-land. If you haven't you're in for, what I think, is a treat. Technically you're supposed to be tagged to play and go on and tag 5 more people. But I wasn't tagged, and won't be tagging anyone else, instead if you want to play please join in!

The way it works is you've given a list of 7 types of posts, and the goal is to go through you're archives to see what best fits each one. It was a lot of fun for me, to go through and relive some of my favorite posts, and it's been fun as well to see what everyone else listed as theirs. Most times I completely agree with other bloggers' decisions so hopefully you will as well. So let's get to my seven.
Houmas House
Your most beautiful post
The Choice
I think this one fits the them in more ways than one. First I do think the venue we chose for our we choose for our wedding is absolutely gorgeous, and can't wait to get married there. And second, I have a feeling that when we actually do get married, that did is going to be beautiful in more ways than just visually.

Your most popular post
All American Girl
Given how big of a part of my childhood American Girls dolls were, it makes sense that this post resonated with so many others. Every few days it seems some one's google search lands them on this page, and I hope that seeing my dolls brings back the love someone else had for their dolls as well.
Meet Felicity
Your most controversial post
The Argument Against E-Readers
I tend not to write a lot of controversial posts, so I wasn't sure that I would have one for this. But I do think my recent post on e-readers, and the future of physical books and bookstores, did get a lot of good responses from everyone.

Your most helpful post
Rashi's Daughters
This isn't a how-to or even anything else like that. In fact it's a review of the third book of the Rashi's Daughters Trilogy, Rachael by Maggie Anton, so I don't think this is what a lot of people would associate with "helpful." But I loved this book, and the series. And I know by writing this post I was able to introduce the series to at least 2 of my readers so they could fall in love too. (Drew and Lisa I believe, although correct me if I'm wrong.) I love that by book blogging I can introduce others to books that I love, and so while this may not meet helpful in the most traditional fact, the idea that I was able to help lead someone to a new book means it fits perfectly well.
A post whose success surprised you
Cupcake Scented Air Freshener
I still laugh over this post's success. And for those people who are google for "cupcake scented air freshener" and lend on this post, I can only apologize. But if you haven't seen this post, or have forgotten it from the first time I posted it, I can only recommend that you read it for a good laugh.

A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
A Life Together
This was actually the hardest one for me to choose, since I felt so many could have fit the bill. What I choose is a post I wrote about 2 years ago. At the time the boy and I had first started to talk about buying a house together, and I wasn't sure about how I felt buying a house with someone I was only dating at the time. The post is a little cryptic, which I think is part of the reason it didn't get a huge response. I also think I was looking for someone to read it and tell me exactly what to do, but clearly that wasn't going to happen. But as to how it played it, we bought out house in January 2010, and became engaged November 2010, so I guess not too bad!
Chair and Bookshelves
The post that you are most proud of
Professor Plum in the Library with the Rope
I love this post about our library! I love looking back to the pictures and just being in it now. Of course I library has changed since then, since we're out of bookshelf space and have started piles on the ground. But still reading this post just makes me so happy!

Do you agree or disagree with my choices? And if you're playing too, please let me know so I can check out your seven best as well!


  1. I love your book review post (and all your posts, really) because we have such similar tastes in books and it's a great way for me to learn about new books to check out - and your recommendations so far have rocked! :)

  2. I remember your all american girl post! I use to be addicted to them when I was a kid!
