It’s that time again – time for superlatives! Sure, I’m a little late. But that doesn’t mean October was any less delicious and amazing. Here’s my favorite posts from October 2011.
Best Recipe: Shroomy Mashed Potatoes – I really love this recipe. The flavor/texture combination takes plain ol’ mashed potatoes to STELLAR!
Runner-ups: Goat Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip and Pumpkin Bean Spread
Most Customizable Gym Workout: Treadmill/Elliptical Workout – If you’re sick of the treadmill, this workout is a great alterative because switching equipment in the middle of the workout makes the time flyyyy by.
Post in Which I Realized I’m Proud of What I’ve Done, But Happy to be Where I Am: One Year Ago… – I’m slowly realizing that life doesn’t have to be always about ‘one-upping’ yourself. Sometimes, it’s okay just to say, “That was awesome, and now I’m done.”
Best Debate: Cook Rules? – Who dictates the menu? The cook or the pickier eater? Should a vegetarian wife cook meat for her husband?
Runner-Up: The Hand Sanitizer Debate
Most Fun: Carolina Blues – I LOVE TAILGATING! Enough said.
Best Healthy Living Advice: A Healthy Intention - I’m continuing with my daily healthy intentions, and it’s really helped me stay on track and feel positive about my efforts.
Runner-Up: Perfect Pacing
Honest Post: Life is Not a Supermarket – This was a difficult post to write (it’s always hard to admit you have negative emotions like jealously, etc.) but it really helped me understand WHY I feel certain ways.
Best Guest Post: $15 to Save a Life – A truly crazy story. Read it – you won’t believe it!
Most Relaxing Day of October: Monday at the Villa from our wonderful trip to Puerto Rico for Nicole and Isaac’s beeeeautiful wedding! Surrounded by friends, I felt so happy and at peace.
Runner-up: Friday in Old San Juan
Best Triathlon-Themed Baby Shower I Ever Hosted (Okay – The Only Baby Shower I’ve Ever Hosted): Jen’s IronBaby Shower – Can’t wait for the little baby boy to be born in December!
