Currently: February

Hey guys!

I hope you are all doing well on this LAST day of February!
Wow, can you believe it?!

And what better way to celebrateΒ the end of another month (which will thankfully only bring us closer to SPRING), than with some THINGS? πŸ˜‰

Thursday Things

Yep, I liked doing last month’s post so much, I figured I’d keep it around for a while! Plus, I think it’s a good way to sum up all the THINGS from the month!


Current Book:

The SAME!! Actually, I think I’m even on the SAME PAGE! Ugh! It’s not that it’s not interesting, the author has an amazing talent for imagery, I just can’t seem to find more than 20 minutes to sit and read!


Current Music:

“Symptoms” by Atlas Genius. I fell in LOVE with this duo when they released their song “Trojans” last summer. This one proves to be another winner AND it’s a free download on iTunes right now! πŸ˜€

Current Guilty Pleasure:

So the other day I went to the store for mouthwash…and I came out with this bottle of bubble-gummy childhood NOSTALGIA and I absolutely LOVE it!

Guilty Pleasure

Current Nail Color:

Au naturale…but not by choice. This sucky winter weather has made it nearly impossible for my nails to grow πŸ™

I am planning to add almond nail tips to achieve a new look.

Current Drink:

Hot water…no lemon…no tea…I know, I’m a weird!


Current Food:

Anything so long as it’s dipped, drizzled, or COVERED in Healthy Chocolate Sauce!

Apples & Healthy Chocolate Sauce

Crisp Pink Lady apples…

Yogurt & Cereal with Pom Arils & Chocolate Sauce

Creamy & crunchy yogurt bowls…


Or gluten-free, dairy-free, VEGAN pancakes!

Oh but wait…I’m getting ahead of myself! That’s not until SUNDAY! πŸ˜€

Current Favorite Show:

Zip…Zilch…Nada…I’m too busy bathing in chocolate sauce! πŸ˜‰

Current Wish List:

Lacuma…aka EGGFRUIT POWDER!…oh yes, this is happening ASAP!

Current Needs:

Sleep…because seriously, I’ve run out of things to clean!

Current Triumphs:

The Elvis Waffle with Chocolate & BACON!

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII maaaaaaaaaaaade WAAAAAAAAFFLES!!! :mrgreen:

Current Bane of Existence:

Suck It Winter

Current Celebrity Crush:

Ok, so I know last month I said I never really to the whole celebrity crush thing, but man, have you SEEN Joseph Gordon-Levitt lately? I just watched Premium Rush the other day and caught a preview for Looper before it started…um, HOW did I miss seeing that?!

Current Indulgence:

PB Toast Crunch

I was a bit disappointed with the PB Toast Crunch at first, then it started to grow on me, THEN I combined it with the last half of my strawberry Arctic Zero and…

Omg, PB&J Heavvvvvvvven!

And now I’m kinda sort of hoarding the rest of the box until I can get more AZ! πŸ˜‰

Current Blessing:

Having the love and support from all of YOU!! Seriously, I’ve been rereading some of the comments from Monday’s post and I really can’t thank you all enough for the advice and kind words!Β β™₯

Current Slang:

Well, can’t think of any slang I’ve been using…but I HAVE been cursing like a sailor lately! Umm, sorry mom! 😳

Current Outfit:

Fuzzy Slippers

Styling and profiling! Annnnd…

Bed Head

Some bed head to go with it Proof that I don’t type ALL of my posts at work! πŸ˜‰

Current Excitement:

Pancake CollageDid you know the last week of February is National Pancake Week?!

Have YOU celebrated?

Current Link:

Foodgawker…in the last week I’ve had FOUR out of nine pictures accepted! πŸ˜€

Current Mood:

A little nervous. I went to the doctor last week for the follow-up on my knee…since I started having pain again, he wants to do an arthroscope (a minor surgery that consists of inserting a small camera into my knee) to evaluate the damage of my meniscal tear…if it’s bad enough, he’ll repair it while he’s in there.

After the procedure, I’m told I can’t go back to work for TWO WHOLE WEEKS! Oh, and they already gave me a set of crutches…um, yeah, this should be fun! πŸ˜•

Guess that just means there will be plenty of time to read, paint my nails, and find more stuff to slather in chocolate sauce!

But what there isn’t any more time for? Entries for my Sambazon giveaway!Β Click the link to see if you’re the big winner!

So, what’s one (or more) of YOUR February things?
Sharing is caring! πŸ˜€

  1. I love Atlas Genius! I hadn’t heard of them before and just found them a couple weeks ago – SO GOOD!

  2. Lucie says:

    You look adorable!
    But how can you do this, posting THIS picture of these pancakes without a recipe?? BEFORE the weekend??? Hmmm, let me think how I can catch you. Swiss Chocolate with caramel….almonds….bittersweet dark dream….white fluffy chocolate….do you want it? Hehe. Gimme the recipe first πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    Kidding. I love all the things!! And I am celebrating with you the end of this f***** month (so sorry)!

  3. No joke, JUST this morning I was thinking, “Oooh I want to do a February ‘Currently’ post. Great minds, huh?

    1. Your skin is AMAZING.
    2. I actually was a bit disappointed in the PB Toast Crunch at first, too, but now I am somewhat obsessed. [However, I think the Whole Foods PB Balls are actually more peanut buttery, and I will be going back to them.]
    3. Lucuma powder has emerged from the ‘I forgot I bought you’ bag in my bedroom–yes, my pantry is too full so I have some food in my bedroom…–and is on the kitchen table, meaning soon I’ll HAVE to make something with it, right?
    4. Winter CAN suck it.
    5. I remember seeing 500 Days of Summer years ago and being all, “WTF Joseph Gordon-Levitt? When did you get so hipster hot???” Looper was great, although he wears a prosthetic to look like Bruce Willis so he’s not as adorable. I added Premium Rush to my Netflix queue after seeing the preview beforehand though. πŸ˜‰
    6. I’m sorry about your injury! However, I am a bit jealous of the thought of ‘forced recuperation time.’
    7. I’ll stop now.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      1. You’re the sweetest…especially since I didn’t edit that pic at ALL! πŸ˜€
      2. Great, now you’re enticing me with yet ANOTHER cereal!
      3. And now you’re rubbing it in.
      4. Hoover!
      5. For real! Zoey Deschanel OBVIOUSLY lost her mind! And yeah, the man-friend and I had about a 5 minute debate on whether or not he was wearing make-up or something during the preview. It ended in pause…with Heather victorious!
      6. Yeah, can’t really say I’m too sad about that…as long as the pain’s not that bad anyway… :-/
      7. But why, we’re just getting started! I could go all night! Lol


      Ps, I want your cauliflower carrot cake pizza!!

  4. I had no idea that this was pancake week! Boy am I glad I made pancakes for breakfast this morning! πŸ™‚

  5. arthroscopic isn’t so bad!!! the recovery time is pretty fast. and you’ll be all better in time for BLEND!

    you just reminded me… i have egg fruit pudding in my freezer.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ha, me too! But I’m totally trying to “forget” about it since it’s my last little bit! When I come for my visit, FIRST Buford’s, THEN pancakes! πŸ˜‰

  6. Fun! I did a currently post a few months ago but great idea to do it at the end of the month. I’m currently in my PJ’s trying to catch up on posts and blogs while sipping on my coffee before my son wakes up πŸ™‚

  7. Yikes! Good luck with your knee, hope you’re feeling better soon.

    I also drink plain hot water sometimes. I get cold easily!

  9. Hahaha! Suck it winter!

    Well your knee situation sounds terrible. πŸ™ BUT, at least you’ll have lots of time to blog! πŸ˜‰

    I swear, it’s always pancake day/ week, etc. somewhere, but if it means your pancakes, then no complaints here! And your foodgawker page is so impressive!

  10. Ugh! I too am sooooo sick of winter! Enough already.

    I’m so glad I read this while eating lunch, otherwise those pancakes would make me hungry. Seriously – those chocolate ones? Ohmahgerrrd

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I know, right? And just when I think it’s gonna start warming up around here, it goes and SNOWS yesterday! I was like, “What the frick?!!” Mother Nature is a cruel trickster! haha

  11. Kim says:

    that’s funny I just watched Looper the other week. It was really good.. scifi, thriller ish… and of course Bruce Willis. πŸ™‚

    Ok that food porn is just the most fabulous! Love your blog. πŸ™‚

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, thank you so much, Kim!! πŸ˜€ And I’m so glad to hear it’s worth watching! I remember seeing previews for it months ago, but totally forgot about ever going to see it!

  12. My favorite thing from February is that today is the last day of it :mrgreen: I hate being a downer, but this month was seriously a bad one. Bring on the Spring! Although I suppose that bathing in chocolate sauce would do wonders for my mood. Why didn’t I think of that…

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Girl, I hear ya! Only a couple of more weeks to go!! Hope you’re having fun soaking up that much needed Vitamin D in Hawaii! Dip a toe in the water for me would ya? πŸ˜‰

  13. Good luck with your knee!
    I can’t believe it’s March tomorrow, holy crap!

  14. Dude- having your last 4 photos accepted by super picky FoodGawker is DEFINITELY a triumph! Congrats! πŸ™‚

  15. Oh my gosh those chocolate pancakes look to die for! Is it Sunday yet?

    Good luck with your knee surgery! I hope your doctor is able to fix the problem!

  16. purelytwins says:

    we sometimes heat up just plain water too! we like it πŸ˜‰
    and wow all those pancakes making us want to go whip some up!!! never enough pancakes, hehe

  17. You are FUN!!! I can see why you are so “out of time” & am sad for you on the knee but maybe rest will do you good & give ya time to think…. Just a fun post = except for the knee…

    I though the pancakes were dessert! πŸ˜‰

  18. 1. I need to try those waffles.
    2. You make me want to go buy the pink mouthwash.
    3. You are the pancake queen.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      1. Yes you DO need to try these waffles…with extra bacon.
      2. Do it…you’re inner 4 year old will thank you for it.
      3. Thank you m’dear, but it would be for nothing if I didn’t have all my little subjects…er, I mean readers to share it with! πŸ˜‰


  19. Im looking forward to that pancake recipe…I am going to take a wild guess and say that they were inspired by healthy chocolate sauce. πŸ˜‰

  21. Great song, weird water fetish, and you need to take some time to read, my friend. I woke up this morning but stayed in bed for an hour just reading my book (not a blog…gasp), and it was so nice. Great battery recharge. Although I totally appreciate all your comment love. Now that chocolate sauce looks divine, but pretty much all your pictures do.
    Sorry to hear about the knee; think of it as a two week vacation, where the Manfriend, if he’s worth his salt, will pamper you and nurse you back to health. Yes, I know he reads your blog, hence the comment. I’m sure you’ll make it up to him anyway. After all it’s only your knee that’s injured. And I meant you’ll make it up to him with food. Get your mind out of the gutter. πŸ˜‰

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ahhh! You totally got me!! I’m seriously laughing out loud right now! Ohhh, the tears! Hahaha!

      Annnnd I’ll have you know…not only was I SUPER productive in the kitch the weekend, but I also made it to the gym (one of the days anyway…hey, I was too busy cooking yesterday! πŸ˜‰ ) and it was basically JUST so that I could catch up on my book! I don’t know what it is, but lately, if I try to read at home, I get so distracted, so I hopped on the arc trainer (the ONLY cardio machine my knee will allow me to play on) and for 30 minutes I got totally sucked into zombie-ville! It was great…well, except for the time I almost lost my balance and fell off the machine! 😯

  22. I was helplessly trying to click on those chocolate pancakes. Recipe please????

  23. Caroline says:

    I totally drink hot water on occasion and get the weirdest looks for it! Also, I’m so sad I’m just now hearing about NATIONAL PANCAKE WEEK!! can I just pretend that it’s actually the first week of march instead of the last week of february?! haha
