Blend or BUST!

Hellooooooooo down there!

Yep, yep! As you read this, I am soaring hiiiiiiiigh in the air making my way to Park City, Utah for what I’m sure will be one HELL of a weekend with some of my favorite blends! The fact that I am midair means I can tell you that I somehow managed to get to the airport on time (on ZERO sleep thanks to a storm tripping my security alarm! 😯 ), figured out where the hell to park (long-term? short-term? please don’t tow me!), AND made my way through security without having a coronary. Puh-LEEZE tell me I’m not the only one who gets super nervous at the airport! I swear I’m not a terrorist…I just want to eat snakes snacks on a plane!! 😉

What this ALSO means is that…

Blend or BUST!

I pulled out some magic tricks in order to cram three weeks-worth of outfits into ONE bag without losing any fingers or toes. Oh and I may be bad at math, but three weeks for one weekEND is totally acceptable when you’re a woman…oh and the second bag is all for SWAAAAAG!


I finally made a decision on what shoes to wear for the cocktail hour on Friday night…which UNFORTUNATELY will not be these beauties due to the fact that I almost broke an ankle walking around TJ Maxx! Why oh WHY must I have the grace of a three-legged elephant?! Unrequited love I tell you!


I polished off my UMPTEENTH salad for the week, successfully obliterating the produce platoon that was staking claim to my crisper drawers this week. I will say they put up a good fight, but they were no match for me and Mr. Beano! Oh, I’m sorry, was that TMI? Too bad! 😛

Portugal. The Man

I have yet ANOTHER playlist under my belt…which may or may not be 75% Portugal. The Man. Sidenote A: You know the true value of a friendship when the day before your trip you get a, “Hey, I bought this the other day and thought you might want to burn it”. SCORE! Sidenote B: How cool is that cork holding the CD to the case?!

But the BIGGEST thing…the thing I can now FINALLY tell you?

Yoplait:Nature Valley


I’m SO excited to be able to work with my friends from Yoplait Greek and Nature Valley! I hope to represent them the best way possible and? Well, hopefully I don’t pass out when I go to speak at the breakfast come Sunday morning! Me? Public speaking fears? Shaaaaaa…it! 😉

Pray for me!

  1. I’m in the Dallas airport! See you in a couple hours!! Yay!

  2. Dude. I think you should have bought those shoes anyway. If they were red glitter, they’d be an absolute requirement. You should know that I’m packing heels right now. If I break an ankle, will you nurse me back to healthy by feeding me pancakes?

    Save me some bars!!!

    Ahh have fun at blend! And I’m sure you will be fine speaking at breakfast, everyone there is a friend anyways right! Just a room full of friends 🙂

  4. Aw you’re gonna be great!!! Have so much fun, lovely!

  5. I’m currently hanging out in the Detroit airport! Also survived security, although they were super suspicious of me crossing the border…awkward. So I didn’t bring an extra bag for swag so now I’m thinking I may end up buying one….
    AHHH see you soon!!

  6. have so much fun!!! wish I was coming

  7. Um… your suitcases are ADORABLE!!

  8. Calee says:

  9. Aww you’re making me wish more than ever that I was going! That’s awesome you got sponsors though. I’m sure you’ll do great with your talk. 😉

  10. You went. You conquered. You swag’d. You rock.

  11. You were representing the combination of yogurt and granola [albeit bars]?! Why am I finding this out just now? That means I wasn’t able to keep my fingers crossed for your presentation – at least I did for you flight back last night. (:

  12. I just found your blog and I LOVE it. Your blog name is perfect haha and I love your style or writing 🙂 I’m so excited to hear about your time at the blended retreat. I am new to the blogging community, but would love to attend something like that in the upcoming years 🙂

  13. I IG stalked all the Blend pictures. It looked amazing.
    And I WANT your suitcases.

      Haha! That seems to be the general consensus…I love these obnoxiously cute little things! Got them at TJ Maxx last summer!

  14. You…nervous in front of people….wha???? You did great at the breakfast! I never woulda known!! And seriously, where did you get that awesome luggage?!? I’m in love!! so glad I got to see your face and spend a little more time with you this year! Now…next May- Boulder or Bust!! 🙂

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha, awww! Thanks, Mollie! And yes, I’m SO glad we got more time together this year! I got my obnoxious (and totally adorable) luggage at TJ Maxx last summer…I was bound and determined to find a set that I could spot from a mile away in baggage claim! Ha!

  15. Those bars at the breakfast were the bomb diggityyy! So nice to meet you (and I totally should have brought a bag just for swag!) I also packed enough for 3 weeks haha, next year I’m bringing mostly workout clothes – that’s pretty much all I wore!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, yay! I’m so glad you liked them! It was great to meet you too…hopefully we’ll get more time to chat next year! And oh yeah, I learned my lesson about overpacking last year…my suitcase was over the limit on the ride back and I ended up having to shove an ungodly amount of stuff into my carryon. It wasn’t pretty! Lol

  16. I hear you’re a planking beast! I love your smile Heather 🙂

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awww, thank you so much, Linda! And…well, let’s just say I surprised the HELL out of myself with that plank…actually, I still kinda think I dreamed it up! Lol

  17. Just popped by to let you know you,ve been featured today over at Carole’s Chatter. Cheers

  18. Meagan says:

    OMG Can you PLEASE tell me where you got those suitcases?!!? must have polka dots.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! I got them at TJ Maxx…for the sole purpose of having suitcases that I could spot in baggage claim from a mile away! Lol
