Another Month

in All Posts

Good morning!


Last night, I are Panda Puffs for dinner and four Resee’s cups for dessert.  The Husband and I played “NOT IT!” every time trick-or-treaters rang the doorbell (even though we both really enjoy opening the door to see the costumes).  And we watched five episodes of How to Make It In America.  Pretty great way to spend a Halloween, if you ask me.


Then I proceeded to have the cra-aziest dreams about whether college students living at home with their parents should have a curfew. So detailed and involved.  I actually INTERVIEWED old high school friends about their opinions in the dream.  How come we dream about people we haven’t seen in years?  Blame it on the sugar!


Here’s a yummy way to enjoy leftover Goat Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip – in omelet form.


Following the steps for How to Make a Pretty Omelet, I stuffed some dip on the inside.   With toast on the side.


Can you believe it’s November 1?  I cannot. 


Time seems to be flying by…


Thought of the Day:


“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” – Yoko Ono

    Mmmm…. omelette… Yum. Your Halloween sounds great!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat November 1, 2011, 10:46 am

    That is one pretty omelette! I made a perfect one the other day and it was such a good flip – that’s one of the things that should be in The Book of Awesome!

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life November 1, 2011, 10:48 am

    that omlette looks amazing and literally made my lick my lips!

  • Khushboo November 1, 2011, 10:50 am

    More often than not, my ‘omelets’ turn into scrambled eggs…I should take a page out of your book!

  • Army Amy* November 1, 2011, 10:56 am

    It sure does seem like the months are flying by! I hope you have a great November!*

  • Alyse November 1, 2011, 10:57 am

    Who in the hell makes an omelet that gorgeous???? #jealous

  • Amanda November 1, 2011, 11:00 am

    Sounds like a great night to me!

    Your omelette is perfect, by the way. What a great idea to put some leftover artichoke dip inside – very gourmet. 🙂

    I can’t believe it’s November already. Only a few weeks until Thanksgiving!

  • Angela @ MyPinkyToes November 1, 2011, 11:02 am

    I’m definitely having a hard time believing that it is November. Time is truly flying by! I really love that quote at the end of your post this morning. Happy November and here’s to a great month ahead!!!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen November 1, 2011, 11:06 am

    Such a good qoute, very true! Winter definitely tests my “perserverance!”

  • Elizabeth @ reads recipes runs November 1, 2011, 11:11 am

    Holy delishiousness Caitlin!! That breakfast looks AMAZING!

  • Courtney @ The Petite AthlEAT November 1, 2011, 11:16 am

    Yum, yum, yum! I can’t believe that 2011 is almost over! Crazy.

  • Alexandria November 1, 2011, 11:19 am

    Love the quote, time sure does fly!

  • Rebecca November 1, 2011, 11:22 am

    Hahaha, what a dream! Living at home for the last two years, I didn’t go out much. (Actually I don’t go out much period.) But if I did, I was home by midnight most nights I think… My sister and our exchange student had a 2am curfew on weekends last year. (Which was broken a few times and was rethought.) I was never out that late. Ever. I’ve stayed awake that late, but never stayed out to come home at 2.

    I can’t believe it’s November already. Only a month of Fall semester left! (Well, a little over.) And believe me, we are counting the days until we get to go home for a couple of weeks at Christmas. Thanksgiving, too, but Christmas is what we’re all looking forward to.

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over November 1, 2011, 11:29 am

    I could really go for an omelet now 🙂

  • Donna @ Life of a Happy Blonde November 1, 2011, 11:36 am

    Ohhhh i’m drooling over your omelette!
    My guy will only eat eggs if they are scrambled, nothing in them, nothing on them, just plain eggs – BORING 🙂
    Happy November 1st

  • Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) November 1, 2011, 11:37 am

    It was kind of sad and sweet last night…my boys did not want to go trick or treating so they daughter over who would get to hand out candy at the door! I didn’t have to do it at all!

  • Deva @ Deva by Definition November 1, 2011, 11:50 am

    I can’t believe it is November 1. The months seem to be flying by!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife November 1, 2011, 11:57 am

    love that quote!! What a fun Halloween ya’all had! We watched the SIng Off and did work–it was great. Ate some Snickers.

    That recipe sounds delish–gotta go check it out now 🙂

  • Moni'sMeals November 1, 2011, 12:07 pm

    Time sure does fly by! 🙁

    GREAT Quote, thanks Caitlin.

    With a breakfast like this though, time has to slow down to make sure you savor it.

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed November 1, 2011, 12:09 pm

    Neeed to make that dip and then that omlet, yum!

  • Sonia (the Mexigarian) November 1, 2011, 12:22 pm

    Hubby and I chilled on the couch all Halloween. (no trick or treaters) We watched a vampire movie and then two episodes of American Horror Story. I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but there’s this scary/creepy white creature in it and it ended up terrorizing my dreams. :\

    Not only does dreaming about old classmates (from grade school!) throw me for a loop, but I hate it when my subconscious hangs on to the scary things I watch and give me nightmares. Seriously brain, what’s the point??

    And since I am a glutton for punishment, we’re going to finish AHS season tonight. I will fall asleep with the lights on.

    And the omelet looks delish. Must make the dip!

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats November 1, 2011, 12:46 pm

    sounds like the perfect halloween, and dinner, to me! My birthday was sunday, and I had cake for dinner…

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey November 1, 2011, 12:52 pm

    I had a really detailed dream about a friend from high school last night too. It was pretty vivid!

  • katie @ KatieDid November 1, 2011, 12:53 pm

    I’ve actually heard peanut butter right before bed caused weird dreams, no joke!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb November 1, 2011, 1:22 pm

    cannot believe it is already november… and that thanksgiving is less than 4 weeks away!

    your night sounds like ours. lots of candy, time on the couch, and mindless tv. perfection in my mind 🙂

  • Amber K November 1, 2011, 1:28 pm

    I absolutely cannot believe it’s November already. Time flies by soo quickly. I love that it’s a brand new month the day after Halloween. Starting fresh with healthier foods than the random fun size candies I enjoyed last night 😉

  • Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled November 1, 2011, 1:46 pm

    I always have the craziest dreams after I eat too much sugar. On Friday I had a bowl of ice cream for dessert (something I never do) and woke up bawling because I had a terrifying dream based on the Hunger Games! Even when I was awake, I couldn’t stop thinking about the dream and crying. Crazy sugar!

  • Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile November 1, 2011, 2:05 pm

    Seriously every time I make an omelet it gets messed up and turns into scrambled eggs! Yours is pro 😀 Sounds like an awesome Halloween to me too!

  • Shari November 1, 2011, 3:29 pm

    What a FANTASTIC quote!!

  • Carin November 1, 2011, 5:14 pm

    It’s Spring here in Nz and getting hotter all the time! Still can’t get used to it being warm in November… it’s just wrong. Are you celebrating Guy Fawkes’ Night on Saturday with the resident pom?

    We went to see “The Trip” last night – made me a bit homesick for the North of England but it looked soooooooooo cold! Great movie – I think you’d enjoy it – it’s a foodie travelogue with impressions and very funny. Give it a whirl on a cold night!

    • Caitlin November 1, 2011, 6:07 pm

      The hubby never does anything for Guy Fawkes! How does one celebrate?

  • Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel November 1, 2011, 5:48 pm

    No matter how many how-to’s I read or watch, I just CANNOT seem to make a good-looking omelet. Seriously, never. I guess in the end all the matters is that it tastes good, though!

    Happy November! Holy cow, only 2 months left in 2011!

  • Alexandra November 1, 2011, 5:55 pm

    This is kind of weird but I JUST signed up for pinterest a few hours ago and went to HTP to pin it on my list of favorite blogs. And then your latest post was about pinterest haha. 🙂

    • Caitlin November 1, 2011, 6:08 pm

      Awww thanks!

  • Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats November 1, 2011, 8:59 pm

    I want that omelet! Mmmm 🙂

  • Jen November 2, 2011, 1:22 am

    I totally have dreams featuring HS classmates that I have not seen in years! Usually, nothing too dramatic – just random, “casual” dreams…pretty wild when they just pop in! 🙂

  • Natalia November 2, 2011, 10:36 am

    I’ve been kind of awol for a while with school so I haven’t seen the new look- LOVE IT! And I just realized how much I missed reading your blog!

    • Caitlin November 2, 2011, 10:41 am

      Thank you sweetie 🙂 Hope school is going well!

  • Sophie @ threetimesf November 3, 2011, 9:01 am

    Seeing all the kids costumes is one of the best things about Halloween! 🙂
