Happy Thursday broccoli fans! I know, I know…I have entirely too much energy right now…on a Thursday morning…but that’s probably becawwwwwse I just had a cup of coffee the size of my face in order to assure myself I can make it through the last bit of my shift! NOT that I’m blogging at work or anything…no…because that would just be wronnnng!
Oh and if you’ve ever wondered why the hell I use so many “dot dot dots” all the time, that’s just how my brain works…if I type how I think/speak, my life is basically just a series of run-on sentences strung together…sometimes with a little song and dance thrown in just for good measure! 😉
Speaking of song and dance, have you met Meghan? If you’ve never read her bloggity blog, you really should…she’s full of energy, spunk with a capital SPAH, and a girl after my sailor-speaking heart! Seriously, go check her out! And believe it or not, that rambling wasn’t ALL pointless…
Duh duh duhhhhh! The illustrious Week in Review!
Since I’ve been jabbering on and on about meal-prepping, kitchen b!tchin’, and basically slapping you upside the face with two pieces of bread (or something like that), I haven’t had ANY time lately to tell you guys about some recent happenings over here in Broccoli Land!
While I am definitely part of the list-making crowd, I am soooo not of the Type A mentality…sorry to all you structured and organized people, but this post is gonna be all over the place!
So…last week, I worked a lot, I slept a lot (score!) annnnd…
I ate very very VERY well!
A couple of recipes that’ll be heading your way soon AND I may or may not have made a total
ROCKSTAR out of myself in the kitchen on Thursday…perrrrrhaps prompting some new confessions? But that’s a topic for a an entirely DIFFERENT day! 😉
But back to those eats…notice anything about them? I didn’t at first…which only makes me want to pat myself on the back even more, but how about the balance? And that’s even without the horribly un-photogenic but definitely delicious pizza I had on Saturday night! Sorry, but it really would have thrown off the feng shui of my collage. 😉 If you REALLY want to see it, click…

Yep, salads…candy…oats…chocolate…red meat…no meat…and enough nut butter to finally quell my craving! I’ve actually only recently noticed that for the past week and a half, I am thinking less and less about food and feeling more and more “normal.” I haven’t felt this way in over a YEAR! I am satisfying cravings, savoring my food, and things are
FINALLY flowing! 😀
On Tuesday, I got back in the gym…
I DID actually workout and not just take 14 pictures of myself in the abandoned studio room!
It was only the ONE day…but I’m totally ok with that. The motivation is still there, but unfortunately, my knee is not. The last few things I’ve done (even just walking) has left me sore and limping. I’ve had a lot of popping and cracking going on lately so I think it’s just the scar tissue breaking up, but to be on the safe side, I’m taking a bit of a break right now…which just gives me more time in the kitchen! 😉
Eh, walking is entirely overrated anyway…ESPECIALLY when you can
My very first time ZIPLINGING!!!
Last Saturday, the man-friend and I traveled to Bottom View Farm in Portland, TN, crossed a line off my bucket list, and zipped our way around the acreage!
It was the absolute BEST day to do it…clear blue skies, around 80 degrees and the views weren’t half bad to look at! There was only about 7-8 lines and maybe one that went kinda fast, but I’m definitely geared up to do it again sometime!
Afterwards, spontaneously met some friends for some UN-feng shui pizza, but not before heading to the TJ Maxx to
lust over the foodie finds find me something to wear other than a t-shirt and yoga pants…
I found the CUTEST shirt (love the one-side zipper!) and the man-friend INSISTED on paying for it (so sweet!)…once I changed, I INSISTED on taking another 14 pictures of myself!
Oh and we also went to the movies to see Mortal Instruments! It was really good and I couldn’t help but think that Kammie looks a LOT like Lily Collins! Now I want to read the books (number 393 on my
summer FALL reading list) while eating a double chocolate microwave mug cake! 😉
Alright, that’s all I’ve got…ok, not really, but how much more RANDOM could this post get?!
Have you ever been ziplining?
Do you have a celebrity twin?
I’ve been told I look like Heather Graham, Uma Thurman, and Rose McGowen
(all depending on the time of year and how blonde/red my hair looks!)
Can you believe Fall starts this SUNDAY?!!?
That shirt is super cute!! I need to get my boyfriend to actually come shopping with me to try and convince him to pay for things. It’s the getting him to go shopping that is the hard part.
Your hair looks super cute in plaits by the way!
I’ve never been Ziplining but it looks like A LOT of fun!
P.S. I NEVER EVER blog at work either 😉
I’ve never been ziplining, but it looks like something I would definitely try! And I’m happy to hear that you’ve been feeling more normal and go-with-the-flow for your eats…that’s exactly the way it should be (and clearly I’m all over the dot dot dot thing as well…)
As for the celebrity thing, when I was in grade 8-9 I got Julia Stiles a lot! Considering that I adored Ten Things I Hate About You, I was fine with that 😉
Oh YEAH!!! With your eyes and the reddish tint to your hair?? I can’t TOTALLY see that! And you SO went up on the BLEND-o-meter 😉 just now because 10 Things is my favorite movie EVAAAA!
I can literally feel your energy through this post, and it’s giving me energy too! Today’s dress up day at my office so I was getting pumped up listening to old school rap on the way to work… It’s trickaaaaay! <– guess I always use ….. too! lol
Haha! Love it!! Awww, I wish we had dress up days at the hospital…but well, I guess every day is sort of like pajama day when you wear scrubs to work! 😉
I totally wanna try ziplining, it looks like so much fun! Glad you enjoyed yourself and I hope your knee will feel better soon.
And hmmm I have never heard of this Lily Collins lady but I can see some similarities! Interesting! I almost never have people I look like that are famous so this is awesome. And I need to see that movie! I bet the book is even better too (That’s usually the case anyway).
For you – I can definitely see Uma Thurman and Heather Graham. You also look like this other lady that I know is famous but I am so terrible with pop culture that I can’t, for the life of me, remember her name or even why she is famous. I have a picture of her in my head though. Ugh! This is gonna bug me all day now! Sigh.
Aww, thanks for the well wishes lady! Since I’ve been taking a break from the gym, I’ve felt a LOT better. I’m thinking about easing back into it next week…just gotta be careful not to overdo it!
Omg, as soon as I spotted her on the screen, I was elbowing the man-friend and saying “Omg, she looks JUST like Kammie!!” And yeah…he had no idea who I was talking about! Hahah! Oh and I totally know how you feel…I’ve been trying for the last WEEK to think of the name of the movie I saw a few months ago where I spotted another blogger doppelganger! It’s driving me NUTS! Lol
I did a mini zipline and it was fantastic. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be.
I can totally see you looking like all those stars. Who do I look like??
I had a really old man at Hobby Lobby once ask me if I was Poppy Montgomery? I had to go look her up. Apparently this old man like crime drama. I also had a girl once tell me I looked like Sarah Jessica Parker, but that was probably because my hair was down and tangly and it is just so dang long… and then once I heard Jennifer Aniston but maybe I was just hoping and praying…
Hands down…BLAKE LIVELY! Long legs, long hair, fantastic cheekbones…hey, can you get me the hook up with the Gossip Girl cast?
OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU!! Blake is something gorgeous!
I wish I had that hook up too girl!
Hey, I call it how I see it! I just consider myself lucky to be able to hang out with a “celebrity” in a few weeks! 😉
Congrats on the balance! I’ve started feeling that way too, no more obsession. So freeing! And you look great!
That’s FANTASTIC, Cassie! I’m so happy for you! And thank you!
Seriously you are BEYOND gorgeous. Love your curls! And your pigtails too 😉
My mom always tells me I look like Debra Messing which I find HILARIOUS since she is a bean pole. I’m like the athletic build over here mom, I look nothing like Debra Messing! I guess it’s the only red head she can ever think of though 😉
Awww, Kat!! Thank you!! Hmm, nah, I can’t really see Debra Messing…but I CAN see Emma Stone OR Lindsay Lohan BEFORE the drama!! 😉
Ahh! I’m so jealous! I’ve always wanted to try zip lining and looks like you had a blast. Oh and I guess I can finally cave into my pumpkin obsession Sunday with each and every meal, snack, and drink for the next month.
Hahaha! Let the pumpkin flood gates OPEN!!!
That’s so cool you went ziplining – and that there’s a place near you where you can do it! I’ve only ever heard of people ziplining through the jungle in places like South America.
I can definitely see the resemblance between you and Heather Graham! I don’t think I’ve ever been told I look like any celebrities… do you think I look like anyone?
Seriously, I WILL zipline through the jungle of off the side of a mountain some day…mark my words! And omg, I was thinking about you the whole time I was typing this up because I watched a movie a few months ago and couldn’t help but see you in one of the actresses…but I can’t for the LIFE of me now remember what movie it was!! It’s driving me nuts!
Ziplining? Eeee! That’s on my bucket list. We have a few teeny tiny places around here, but I want to go somewhere amazing and zipline through a rainforest or off a mountain or something I have a feeling that one might take a while. And I literally -just- picked up the City of Bones book like… an hour ago. I’ve been hearing good things, and I want to finish the book before I go ahead and watch the movie.
Omg, me too! Actually, I had always envisioned my first time ziplining to be in some sort of remote wooded area…besides two lines that went over a creek with some trees next to it, we weren’t even CLOSE to that, but I guess for a first experience, it was alright. I said I was going to read the book first, but I’m so bad about that…I’m STILL waiting to watch Harry Potter for the same reason! LMAO!
I love that things are “flowing” with the food lately (ps. I love that term when talking about food relationships and am totally stealing it). I went ziplining once and loved it, it is such a rush!
Steal away, m’dear! Spread the feel-good flowing food fun! And guess who gets an A PLUS for some 5am alliteration? 😉

I have always wanted to go ziplining- they have this gorge somewhere in Australia where you can do it- should add it to my bucket list!
So much variety in all your food there- epic as usual. And yes, you remind me so much of Rose mcGowan!!!
I don’t have a celebrity twin but lets just say George Clooney to be fair. 😉
Ziplining over a GORGE? How cool would that be?! And thank you, Arman! You are so sweet…and the spitting image of George Clooney…minus all the gray hair! 😉
Despite my very type A personality, my mind is always a mish mash of music lyrics, food, sex, and dot, dot, dots. I’ve learned to accept and even embrace it.
New clothes, great and yes very balanced eats, movies and zip lining. You did have a great week and all that gorgeous food. Talk about accomplished. I think you might give me a run for my type A money.
Thanks for the linkup love!!
You are so sexy, I almost can’t handle it. Seriously, I would look like a stupid cowgirl if I wore braid piggy tails, but you just look HOT. No fair. And wahooo, ziplining! I’ve never been, but Jake and I are planning to zip line through the jungle when we go to Costa Rica this winter. Can’t freaking wait.
I don’t think I have a celebrity twin. Any suggestions ;)?
Haha! Whatevs! I could totally see you rocking some braids with those gorgeous blonde locks! And omg, I’m soooooo jealous that you’re going to be ziplining through the freakin’ rain forrest! That’s how I always envisioned it…but well, you know what they say about expectations for your first time!
Hmm, celebrity…celebrity…Jessica Simpson! And no, I’m not just saying that because of the boobs! 😉
