    Love you and your husband’s posts about what you have learned from 100 days of marriage! It is amazing what I have already learned from only 90 days of marriage! Looking forward to October – fall, haunted houses, pumpkins, and marathons!!

    I’m bummed September is over! It’s my favorite month. At least there’s a lot to look forward to in October 🙂

  • Sweet and Savvy October 2, 2011, 6:27 pm

    I forgot all about your quinoa bowl post, but I’m heading to check it out now! The photo looks great!

  • Tania @ The Health Macadamia October 2, 2011, 6:43 pm

    September flew by! Feels like it was just a day ago that it was the start of summer – now it’s over! But I do love fall :).

  • Kara October 2, 2011, 6:50 pm

    What about the cheating post?? Doesn’t that get a “Most controversial” title? 🙂

    • Army Amy* October 3, 2011, 11:51 am

      That’s exactly what I was thinking!*

  • sarah@spinach and spice October 2, 2011, 7:00 pm

    I really loved the grocery list and meal planning post! Oh, and those chocolate covered brownie balls 😉
    My how this month has flown by!

  • katie @ KatieDid October 2, 2011, 7:01 pm

    September is my favorite month and I’m a little sad to see it go. But October is a close second… Lots to do, cook, celebrate in October too!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb October 2, 2011, 7:14 pm

    i loved your 1,000 days of marriage posts. it started some very interesting conversations between my hubby and me… and gave us a better understanding of each other and our relationship.

    • CaitlinHTP October 3, 2011, 10:00 am

      I’m so glad!

      • Lea @ Healthy Coconut October 3, 2011, 1:27 pm

        I like reading about that post too.

        For someone who has been married for only 100 days, it’s good to read practical advice from another couple who is 1,000 days down the marriage journey. Thanks Caitlin

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 2, 2011, 7:45 pm

    I really loved all of these posts, so I guess I agree with your superlatives! 🙂

    October is going to be a GREAT month, so you’re right, BRING it!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 2, 2011, 8:33 pm

    I know, I wonder where Sept AND all of 2011 has gone!

    Thanks for the recap of the month. I just posted Oct goals yesterday. I never do those but figured, what the heck. The year is almost over, may as well!

    Your post about babies (including the comments) was pretty life-altering for me because I had the EXACT same concerns about having children. I desperately wanted kids, but I feared all the changes, plus I also got discouraged from hearing parents complain all the time.

    At the same time, I’m 26 and fully aware that the ability to conceive is a blessing that I won’t have forever. The post really got me thinking, so I had a long talk with DH that night, and we decided we would start trying right away. Well, wouldn’t ya know it – once was all it took! Yesterday, we found out we’re pregnant! Didn’t expect it to happen that quickly, but we’re so happy it did 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP October 3, 2011, 10:01 am

      YAYYYYYYYYYY! Babies!!!!

  • Jessica @ Jess Go Bananas October 2, 2011, 9:11 pm

    I must have missed that quinoa bowl post!!! You always give the best advice!!

  • LizW October 2, 2011, 10:20 pm

    Brownie balls in the oven RIGHT NOW!!! Can’t wait 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP October 3, 2011, 10:02 am

      Oh I hope they were good!

  • Khushboo October 3, 2011, 1:35 am

    I’m still wondering why I haven’t made those brownie balls. Must.Do.This.Week!

  • The Teenage Taste October 3, 2011, 6:51 am

    Yay! I’m so glad the Brownie Balls won the Superlative for “Best Dessert!” They look so good, I cannot wait until I find the time to make them! 🙂

  • Sarah@The Flying ONION October 3, 2011, 8:10 am

    Really, now. Where DID September go? I was wondering the very same thing.

    I do LOVE October though. 😀

  • Suzanne October 3, 2011, 10:39 am

    Key scrunchie……genius!

  • Amber K October 3, 2011, 1:11 pm

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. September really FLEW by! I do feel like you just did this for August, but I definitely like that there’s already another one of these posts. I love being able to reread some great posts.
