Best of…October!

Hey guys, I’m so glad I’m not alone in loving pumpkin seeds and sugar cookie tea! Those two things have really been getting me into the holiday spirit a little early this year, which is okay by me! Only 2 weeks til Thanksgiving break, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I honestly almost can’t believe that October’s already over and in less than 2 months, it’ll be 2012! Wow, a new year already? I feel like 2011’s just flown by like cah-razy! I’m not complaining, though–bring on Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s πŸ˜€ So with that in mind, I decided to start a little tradition around these here parts…Best Of! Hopefully I’ll remember to do it at the beginning of every month πŸ˜‰ But anyways it’s just a highlight of a few of my favorite posts/moments from the previous month, so this one is obviously for October.

Best Response: It’s Okay…

I loved how you guys could all relate in some way or another to not being perfect, and feeling okay with admitting it!

Best Recipe: Pumpkin Pizza, Pumpkin Smoothie and Pumpkin Cornbread

Okay, so I technically chose 3 recipes, but it’s not really cheating ’cause they were all in the same monster-of-a-WIAW post. I can’t wait to make these three things again–well, with the exception of the pumpkin cornbread, which ended up not tasting so great after a few days. Hey, you win some, you lose some!

Best Heart-to-Heart: My Story, Parts 1 & 2

I was sooooo blown away (in a good way, of course) by the amazingly-sweet comments I received on my posts about my struggle with anorexia. I did not anticipate that so many of you would relate (which is sad, obviously, but also reassuring) and I literally smiled at every one of your responses πŸ˜€

Best Foodie Discovery: Clif Mojo White Chocolate Macadamia bar or Starbucks Light Salted Caramel Mocha Frap

I actually discovered a lot of new faves in the month of October, lucky me! Here’s hoping November’s even better with foodie finds–well, I’m sure it will be with Thanksgiving and all!

Best Fun Post: Why Did I Have to be Born in Arizona?

OMG, vlogs are so fun! I’ve only done 2 so far but man are they a blast. This one was really hilarious too because I basically have no accent but it was fun to see what you guys thought of my voice and what you say differently/the same as me.

Best Weekend of Food: WIAW Halloween Weekend Edition


Okay, honestly this is probably tied with my WIAW: Weekend of (Many!) Firsts post waaaaay back at the beginning of the month, but I already used that one for the recipes. But for real, who wouldn’t want to eat a ton of roasted veggies, PB & chocolate Puffins, pumpkin seeds, smoothies, sugar cookie tea, pumpkin chocolate pancakes, sweet potato tots, apple and tempeh bacon, especially all in one weekend? Obviously, this girl does! Oh, and yeah, I just realized that this post was from November, but all the photos were taken in October, so it still counts πŸ˜›

  1. I love this post idea! What a fun way to review the month! One of my fave memories was carving a pumpkin with my dad πŸ™‚ Here’s to an awesome November!!

  2. October was great! I’ve eaten more pumpkin than I have in in all the past Falls combined. I really appreciate the seasons now, thanks to food & blogging πŸ™‚ Which by the way, I made your pumpkin cornbread and will be posting about it on Sunday, just a heads up πŸ˜‰

  3. This is such a cute idea! I loved your vlogs πŸ™‚ My favorite part of October was probably watching all the leaves turn red, orange and yellow. Made everything so beautiful.

    Have a great day!

  4. You definitely had a good october! I think that anything with pumpkin in it can win best recipe. It’s the wonder ingredient!
