I received a copy of Did I Say That Out Loud? in order to write my review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours. My opinions are honest and 100% mine.

My Review- 

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! 
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 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.

About the Author
Kelly McDermott 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 and has three sons. 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.  Kelly is currently working on her next book, a memoir about growing up abroad as the daughter of a (former) CIA agent.
