October Reflections & Favorites

My Halloween night didn’t go exactly go as planned. I started feeling a little off after work, but I tried to ignore it and got dressed up to hand out candy.

Before long, I was on the couch, then on the floor, and up all night very unhappy. I spent all of Thursday in bed, watched way too many movies, slept, and ate soup. Kirk was a great helper, since he works from home (great perk for me!).

So….that explains yesterday’s missing post. Sorry about that! I know it’s now November 2nd, but I still really wanted to do my October recap post. So hopefully you’ll give me a grace period since I was sick. :)

Your Favorite Post

Kirk and I had a friendly competition this month to see whose recipe would get the most attention. Guess who won? Kirk’s Wicked Spicy Sausage Tacos were the winner (although my Beer + Butternut Squash Mac N Cheeseweren’t far behind!).


My Favorite Post

This is probably a weird one for my favorite, but I Hate Running was good for me to write. I try to be transparent and honest here, so that’s part of it, but it also reminded me why I really do like running (usually). I’m happily taking a break right now, but I can’t wait to recapture the fun of running again!


I shared more recipes than usual this month, there was lots of good food in our house!






Since there was more focus on food in October, it was a little light on the fitness front. I did run two races and accomplish my goal of running a marathon for fun, though!





Another month with no videos. I will fix this in November. :)


Don’t forget that Monday starts a new month of Meatless Mondays from A-Z, with a new logo, and new ingredients. I am hoping I’ll be well enough and have time to come up with a creative miso recipe to share on Monday. I have seen a few people who are ahead of the game with their recipe already (I’m a little jealous!).



Questions for you:

  • Any miso recipe requests?
  • What fun weekend plans are on your list?
  • How was your Halloween?

    I’ve been battling a nasty cold, so know how you feel, it’s no fun being sick! I hope you’re getting better!

    My fun weekend plans including hanging out with my bff here in Dallas! I’m loving the warmer weather here!

    Oh snap! I almost forgot I needed to do a recipe for Monday. MISO! Yum. That is going to be fun. I have used it in a bunch of different ways already, but I recently saw a new twist that I wanted to try…can’t tell you what it is though because it might be a fail.

    My favorite post this month was your hating running post. I liked that you came from such an honest place. Also, I liked the race recap. Because I was there. 😉

    GLAD you are feeling better!!!

    I love that you did this re-cap, because it reminded me of the recipes I need to make! And I’m going to start with Kirk’s tacos….
    SERIOUSLY we need to be neighbors. We’d have dinner parties every week!! Soon enough…
    I’ve already made my MISO recipe, and it RULES! I have so much miso leftover now- I’m going to make some miso soup! (I can’t believe I never have before)
    Sorry you felt icky on Halloween, but I love that hubby took care of you!

    I hope you feel better! This is definitely the season of colds and I feel like I’ve been fighting one off for at least a week now, but the very early stages. I’m hoping to knock it completely down with some rest and extra vitamins today.
