Overview

We've all had it - the "uh-oh" of wishing we could take back the comment that somehow escaped the filter between our brains and our mouths. Did I Say That Out Loud? is the tell-all account of the author's misadventures in the daily experience that is life. Told in the tone of a coffee-klatch gathering with your best girlfriends - you know, the ones you can share anything and everything with - the author holds nothing back as she recounts the trials and tribulations of life as Kelly Harman.

Thinking of braving Botox or plastic surgery? Get the real scoop from Kelly, including pre-procedure husband prep. Need help when your cat catches on fire? Ask Kelly how to extinguish the flames without spilling your wine. Survival tips for when a tipsy 300 pound man falls on you? Ask Kelly, who lived to tell the tale.

Kelly captures those "you can't make this stuff up" dramas and takes them one step further. She shows us that by reveling in the inevitable mess of the moments we wish we could take back, we may discover that sharing our stories is in fact healing, unifying, and often outrageously funny.

Bad for the laugh lines but good for the abs, some of these stories will hit close to home, others will stray far, far from your average woman on the street. But all are unified by the inimitable candor and hilarity that her friends agree is uniquely Kelly.

Read 'em and weep.

Meet the Author

Kelly Harman was born in Asmara, Ethiopia in 1962 and has walked the road less traveled ever since. Her childhood was spent overseas, living in eight different countries before she came to the U.S. at the age of 16. This experience inspired an adventurous streak and disregard for convention which has yielded a rich life, overflowing with great story material.

Her experiences range from celebrating her ninth birthday at India’s Taj Mahal to being evacuated with her family in the midst of a civil war in East Pakistan, single motherhood to serial entrepreneur, and Burning Man devotee to self-made marketing maven. Most recently Kelly came full circle back to the continent of her birthplace, celebrating her 50th birthday at the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Kelly lives in Manassas, Virginia with Bob, her husband and true love of 23 years. When she isn't writing about her adventures, Kelly loves spending time with her friends and family, but especially with her three grandchildren, teaching them the value of reckless honesty and unhindered fun.

     I literally cried from laughter when I read this book! Kelly Ha

     I literally cried from laughter when I read this book! Kelly Harmon is hands down one of the funniest and most genuine nonfiction authors I have come across, and I read ALOT! She takes the funny from almost every situation, which is something I wish I could do easier with my own life. From conversations with her husband, kids and complete strangers come some of the funniest conversations ever. Such as this little tidbit from her blog 




    "Dear Bob,I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the officer is going to buy my book. The bad news is that the profits from the sale will not cover the 70 in a 55 speeding fine."




    I think we've all had those "oh my god did that conversation just happen??" moments with the people we love. I am now so enamored with her book and her wit that I make sure to check her blog at least every few days for new stories. She writes with honesty and humor and comes across as very real and down to earth. If you need a little perspective and a lot of laughs check out her book and her website!!

    I was delighted by this book because it was so raw and real. I felt like all the short stories were something that I could relate to in my own life. I started this book of real life laugh out louds yesterday and was finished within a couple of hours. I could not put it down even when going to the bus stop to wait for my son to get off school. I was standing there at the stop sign where he gets dropped off with Kindle in hand. People must have thought that I was crazy that I could not even put my Kindle down for the ten minutes that it took me to walk there, wait, and walk him home. 
    I liked that the author did not keep the book strictly PG. We have all had those moments where we were like "Did that really just happen?" or "Did they just say that?". The book was raw and it drew me in because I could relate to almost all the moments that the author supplied. She talks about everything from her grandchildren, her siblings, her husband, and even the quest for the best gay friend that you need in your life. I do not have one but by the sounds of things I may need to acquire one. Any takers? She describes that they listen and are not as judgmental as women and they get right to the point of making you feel better. Sounds awesome to me!




    After finishing the book in an afternoon my hubs promptly came home and asked what I had done with my afternoon. I just held up my Kindle and told him that I had read some of the funniest stuff that I have read in a while. He smiled and said he didn't want to know. Thank you Kelly for a dose of humor and reality that life has it's moments and we should laugh about them. Everyone should pick up a copy of this book because if I could go higher than FIVE STARS, I certainly would!

    You ever have one of those "OMG" moments in your life,

    You ever have one of those "OMG" moments in your life, where you weren't sure whether to laugh, cry or scream? Ha! This book is it. This book is put together with a number of short stories that relate to everyone.
    Let's face it, we are all human and so we all make our mistakes, have our funny moments, have our good gosh did I just do that moment!? Events that paint our lives and change history within family. This book is about the author's life, stories of which will leave you laughing and thanking all powers above that it wasn't your family all at the same time. Face it we're all "that" family anyways.
    Life just simply wouldn't be without those , fun awkward and seriously funny moments and Kelly McDermott Harman has put it to words.
    Did I Say That Out Loud, had me laughing and snorting out loud . It is so funny! It's a heartwarming quick read that dives into her relationships with family and friends. You follow her through crazy situations, tied up with moments that will have you burst out laughing and even relating too! That is by far the best thing of this book. Being able to relate to it. You read a book and are carried away with a fantasy but Kelly managed to snag and relate to me . I like it - and I can laugh about it!
    I was busting out laughing with some of the things in this book, exploding rear ends ( nope, not joking, and frankly let's face it it happens!) Cat's suddenly catching on fire ( flash back to National Lampoons Christmas Vacation !!- that's not how it happens but I laughed my butt off none the less)
    Kelly really created a humor throughout her writing, the events and things that happen along her journey relate to us all. Our pit falls, our fall backs, she took daily life and threw in wit, humor which makes you simply turn some of our life's most rocky little moments into laughable moments. I love it. Truly a quick easy read that catches you off guard.
    Did I Say That Out Loud is a must read, I'm telling you now you will enjoy the all-around wonderfully charming sense of humor as Kelly dives. Sure screw ups happen, it's what makes our lives interesting!




    I can't wait to read more from Kelly and her all around great writing. She's captured wit , humor and made a connection with everyday life! Grab it, read it, enjoy it!
