I have been tagged!  Sarah over at Greenga Girl tagged me to play along in a little game.  Here is her post.  How fun!  There are 7 categories and you pick one of your own blog post to best fit the category.

Actually, it was harder than I thought it would be.  But, I came up with the seven blog posts that I think fill in the blank.

Most beautiful post:

For a not so obvious reason I am picking Fun in the Sun! as my most beautiful post.  When I first moved to Mexico I thought, due to our financial restraints, that we wouldn't be able to take a family vacation.  But, this past May we had a family vacation!  It was the first time the girls had seen the ocean.  So in a way it is my most beautiful post.

Most popular post:

Surprisingly my most popular post is Overnight Guest.  It has been view almost 3 times more than the 2nd most popular post.  The title is so vague I'm not really sure how it became the most popular, but it is.

Most controversial post:

I find that I don't really post anything controversial.  The post I chose is controversial in a way that relates to my personal life.  I would say that my post Bittersweet is the most controversial thing I have written about when it relates to my life.  My actions might not have been understood by everyone. 

Most helpful post:

Looking back through my posts I don't think I have written anything "helpful" for anyone.  BUT, I sometimes find myself reading back through my blog and have found that it helps me.  So, while I know I didn't help anyone else with this post, it seems to help me.  I picked One Year.  Just looking at the picture of Jorge seeing Emily for the first time reminds me that moving down here was the right thing.  And, I can see that some of the things I complained about are not even worthy of complaints.

A post whose success surprised me:

I picked my very first post Five Months and Counting for this category.  Because honestly I am surprised that anyone would be interested in reading my blog.  So, here we are almost 3 years later and we are still going.  It is nice and still surprising that I have people that read this thing. 

A post that didn't get the attention I felt it deserved:

This category is kind of weird to choose something.  The way I narrowed it down was a post that was crazy but didn't have many comments.  I haven't even seen how many people viewed it. So, for little reasons I am picking Flying Solo Yet Not Solo for this category.

Post I'm most proud of:

After looking through my blog I selected Settling In as the post I am most proud of.  It seem to be the time where I FINALLY accepted living here in Mexico.  I had gone back to live in the US because I didn't think it was my place to be down here.  But, I realized that I needed to be with my family.  Jorge, the girls and myself needed to be together no matter what.  It was going to be the first time I had no income living in Mexico.  I really was giving up everything to come back.  It ends up that a few months later is when I got offered a job.  Everything fell into place and I haven't regretted once coming back.  I am proud of myself for choosing the right path.  I can tell you it wasn't easy getting to that point. 

There you have it.  It wasn't easy to come up with those.  I try to keep this blog light and entertaining.  Some of those categories were hard to pick from my blog. 

Anyway, I am supposed to tag others but I'm really not sure who to tag so I will let you decided if you have been tagged or not.

A great list! I can't wait read the posts you mentioned! Another bloggy friend tagged me with one of these and I'll hopefully get to it later this week. :)

Wow! That "Bittersweet" post was written two years ago. I'm glad your life has improved so much.

The offer still stands, of course. My house and my heart will always be open to you.

Love and hugs
