can i just say i love you guys? i enjoyed reading each and every comment on my last post—everybody has great insight on commenting and on blogging in general. thanks for the fun discussion. it’s nice to hear your point of view on the matter.
between my fast food post earlier this week and my comments on commenting post yesterday, i think there has been enough serious business lately. i know i said i was going to talk about my october goals today, but i think i will save that post for this weekend.
how about a little mindless fun?!
you guys know i am obsessed with national food holidays. i talk about them all the time and celebrate them when i can. i also post the national food of the day on my facebook page.
well, october happens to bring lots of holidays when it comes to food. this is valuable information that you all need to know! and i am just the girl to inform you.
- national eat country ham month
- national apple month
- national applejack month
- national caramel month
- national chili month
- national cookie month
- national dessert month
- national pickled peppers month
- national popcorn popping month
- national pork month

- eat better, eat healthier month
i realize that the fact that it is both eat better, eat healthier month AND national dessert month kind of cross each other out.. but you could always pick a better, healthier dessert!
how about a bowl of greek yogurt, a huge juicy peach, a handful of uncooked oats and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon?
this was my breakfast today, but the whole time i was eating it, i thought it was dessert!
very reminiscent of peach cobbler a la mode. yum.

two leftover green chile chicken enchiladas with mushrooms topped with hot sauce & greek yogurt.
just as good the second time around!

well, i think that is enough national food holiday talk for one post. let’s move onto my next item of business:
i really didn’t have anything in mind for today’s flashback. i do have a semi-serious flashback on the burner, but like i said.. there has been enough serious business on the blog this week. so i am just flashing back to some fun, goofy photos i had on my hard drive.
2009: underwater cameras are cool
slow dancing with allie in the hotel room.
tonje doesn’t approve.
2006: ear candles are AWESOME. i love them! but they do look silly.
2005 (?): my then boyfriend got locked out of his house. those are my legs.. i climbed into that tiny window! good thing i was small.
2009: this isn’t silly as much as it is adorable. it is from when penny was a puppy.. look at her little head! unfortunately, her body grew and her head has since stayed the same size…
2007: this was NOT funny at the time, but it is now. i was up the canyon and had to leave my friend’s cabin at 5:30 AM to make it to work on time.. but i was snowed it! my 4runner was completely stuck! the joys of living in utah ;)
2008: smooching a snail in hawaii
2009: marshall in momma b’s reading glasses. it makes me laugh every time.
2007: kareokeing to madonna!
2006: vegas. we filled a whole tub with beer.
side note: my left arm looks so weird without a scar on it!
well there you have it. totally silly, totally random.
this post didn’t take a lot of effort, but it sure was fun!
i hope you guys all have a spectacular weekend. i’ve got lots planned.. but i will check in to say hello sometime before monday.
1. which national food holidays caught your eye?
2. happy national homemade cookies day! what is your favorite kind of cookie?
