If you ever want to stress me out to the max, just slap some technical issues onto me. I’m not sure if you guys noticed, but Spoons was down for the better part of yesterday, and I’m about ready to rip my hairs out after all the time and energy I had to spend trying to get it back up.
We’ll chat more about that tomorrow, though, because right now I really just want to get this post up and go drown my frustrations in a bag of chocolate covered pretzels. Thank you guys so much for your patience, and I’ll see you tomorrow with an explanation and some good food!

Holy pumpkin recipes batman. I’d say you’ve got fall on the brain which makes me even more honored to have my link included. Thanks for sharing it love.
It’s nice to see some other bloggers craving real and genuine posts too.
I still have no idea how to read my google analytics graphs. Oops. One day. 🙂
Thank you for sharing the post about orthorexia! I think it is becoming more common and is not really recognized and addressed as it should be!
Shashi at RunninSrilankan
Oh Amanda – thanks so so very much for including my pancake cake in your link-luv! I was MIA yesterday and just saw the ping back today – hope your week is better than your Saturday night was!
Ah, website issues are the worst! Sorry to hear you had some troubles yesterday:(
Looks like pumpkin recipes are officially going strong!
Cassie @ Almost Getting it Together
Tech stuff is the worst… it’s because Mercury is in retrograde!!!
Yesterday: Run, SoulCycle, got to see Marisa & Davida!!
Today: Run, Hike, Dinner with a friend!
GAH I feel you on technical frustrations- that’s been my morning as my wifi has been down. Thank the lord for the free wifi at Starbucks, even if it’s not always the fastest! Loved Meg’s post on exercise too- so much truth! Three things I did yesterday include going for a long walk with friends, hotel breakfast & flying back to Mumbai–> back to reality now!
Oh gosh, I am so sorry about your technical difficulties… Sounds like a blogging nightmare to me!
Yesterday: Well, my yesterday wasn’t super interesting, because I wasn’t feeling good, but I managed to make oat flour and roast carrots in between listening to an audiobook and laying down/napping.
Today: Um, haha, not really interesting either. I made an awesome grilled cheese sandwich with lots of cheese and bacon. It was totally worth it. 😀 I also did my hair in something other than a ponytail, and ended the day by watching a movie. I guess that’s the sort of weekend you get when half the family is sick. 😉
yesterday- eat- sleep-study- (eat)
today- exam, exam, cry.
hopefully make headway on the 3 drafts i’ve been wanting to post by Weds! love the shares 🙂
Daisy @ Fit Wanderlust Runner
Glad everything got fixed. I worked this entire weekend, so not much time to do anything except sleep, eat, and work. Looking forward to the next two days off.
I’m so glad that your site is back up! The new pumpkin recipes look lovely, and I’m going to buy some pumpkin so I can try them out.
Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life
Thanks so much for the link love! <3
Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious
Oh girl, I feel for ya! Tech issues are never fun. They are so very stressful. Glad you got them worked out!
meredith @ Cookie ChRUNicles
I felt so bad last night when you had to deal with the tech stuff! I am so glad you fixed it. I hate this side of blogging and websites, it’s so frustrating and scary when these things happen! Thanks for sharing my link 🙂
Aagh can feel your tech-issues pain – it’s like having a power cut but less fun because there’s no excuse for candles…. Anyway, happy to have you back!
I also love that 6/7 of your choice recipes have pumpkin 😀 I’m already clearing shelves of the stuff over here (limited supplies in UK supermarkets!)
you and arman must have had mega traffic at the same time and it crashed, yes? You should blame all the pumpkin goodness your making and people are drooling. Just sayin…
hugs and so sorry about tech stuff. BOO
Oh my gosh thank goodness you’re back!!! I thought you had done something terriblelike remove this blog!!!! Phew… ok all good now 🙂
Michele @ paleorunningmomma
Tech issues are the worst! Saw your site was down this morning and definitely worried because I know that feeling. Definitely want to hear the whole story. Thanks for linking my cookies today!
