June: The Month of Time Warps & Monkey Love

Where am I?!

Ok, so wasn’t I JUST lamenting over the fact that we’re halfway through June? Now it’s the last day of the month?! What gives? Is there something in the water? Am I in Narnia? Or more importantly, do I get a pet lion and a magical horn and a date with James McAvoy to stay young and fresh and wrinkle-free forever!?


Though I can’t say I’d be that disappointed if, years from now, when I’m old and gray (and still damn good-looking) you can still trace my laugh lines! 🙂

But enough with introductions and fantasies of dating half goat men, I do believe we have a “Currently” post to attend to, don’t we? This is of course one of my favorite things about blogging!

Current Book:

I have made it tooooooo….the SECOND book in the Bride Quartet series…actually I’ve been there for weeks now. I seriously “flew” through the first book (what with all those flight delays…haha, get it?), but lately work has been FAR too busy to sit for more than five minutes and when it comes to those beloved walks in the park? Well, I’ve kinda sorta been sleeping through my “allotted” workout times. Whoops?

Current Music:

Ha, what did you THINK I meant with that post title?! Get yo’ minds outta the gutter, people! 😛 Seriously though, I’ve been mad crushing on these guys for months now, but after getting my music soulmate hooked on them, I’ve only rekindled the love…and? I just bought tickets to see them at Loufest come September! Now, which underwear should I take to throw on stage? 😉

Current Guilty Pleasure: 

Guilty Pleasure - Ice Breakers Gum

For a person who used to SWEAR that she didn’t like chewing gum and could only handle one piece a day, over the last month or so, I seem to have developed jaws of steel…and an addiction to any new and flashy flavors from Ice Breakers. Oh and I have my six month checkup with the dentist next week…ha!

Current Nail Color:

While I haven’t tried chopping any of my digits off this month, I’ve yet to get my nails to look like anything but nubby ends since coming back from Blend…the altitude pretty much sucked my will to live! Please I haven’t aged myself too much with that movie reference!

Current Entertainment:

Still loving me some Game of Thrones…especially since the bestie got me the hookup on HBOGo! I am now carefully spreading out the last of the few episodes I have of the fourth season because I’m just not ready to let it go for a full freaking YEAR!

Current Wish/Needs:

For it to be summer FOREVERRRRR!

Current Food:

Cereal with Fairlife Milk

While I hate to announce that I am now hoarding my last bottle of Fairlife milk, the cereal-addiction is in full force…especially since I’ve rediscovered one of my hidden talents. Just call me Cer[eal] Mix Alot! 😉 And yes, those would be more marshmallows from my favorite Mennonite market!*

*Bonus points for unintentional alliteration!*

Current Drink:

Cookies & Cream Coffee

I would like to make an announcement! I have officially made my way back to FULL CAFFEINATED COFFEE, people! And it only took TWO YEARS! Cue the coffee pots, open the bag of cookies…er, I mean, coffee, and let the liquid life force FLOW!!

Current Triumphs:

Well, besides my recent claiming of the throne…last week, in yoga, I successfully made it from crow pose to a head stand without the *THUMP* of my head hitting my yoga mat! And now I’m thinking of starting a petition to install little red buttons on the floor so that we can all hit them Jeopardy style just for such accomplishments!

Current Bane of Existence:

Work. Bane of my existence is kind of a strong term, but really, it’s totally cramping my summer style! If only I had a job where I was off all summer…and didn’t have to work for the school system! Not to knock all you teachers out there (I commend you for your abilities), but I just couldn’t do it!

Current Blogger Crush:

I’ve been WAY behind in all my blog reading as of late, but I did manage to set off a pretty decent-sized broccoli bomb over Sydney and Cleveland last week! 😀

Current Indulgence:

Lindt Chocolate

Hello, my name is Heather and I take back every bad thing I ever said about chocolate! 😉 After spying the cookies & cream bar a couple of weeks ago while gathering up supplies for s’mores, I’ve made it my personal mission to try each and every other flavor I can get my hands on!

Current Blessing:

To finally be at a place in my life where I feel like I’m EXACTLY where I’m supposed to be. 🙂

Current Outfit:

At this moment, I am lounging on the couch in a t-shirt, undies, and a blanket, but pretty much any chance I’ve gotten this month has been all about the shorts and the sundresses…in other words, continuing on with last month’s mission to FREE THE LEGS!

Current Excitement: 

Persimmon in June

About two weeks ago, when I was strolling along the produce aisles in Publix, I nearly had a syncopal episode when I spotted….persimmons…IN JUNE!! Granted, they were $2 a piece and the one I came home with has YET to ripen enough to eat, but still! And then, yesterday, I saw FIGS!! I don’t know what kind of time warp I’ve slipped into, but I’m not coming out!

Current Link:


Proof that you can in fact find ANYTHING on the internet! Now…someone get to work on that time travel device for me, wouldya? 😉

Current Mood:

Peaceful. 😎

What are you currently EXCITED about?

What has been your latest GUILTY pleasure?

  1. Awwww, so happy that Lindt chocolate is your favorite!! I mean….it’s Swiss…..just sayin’…. 🙂
    My move is this week and I can not wait to finally LIVE again! Eating from plastic plates on moving boxes just isn’t so fun after 34 times.
    Guilty pleasure – IKEA! Well, I move. I need new stuff, right?? (Let’s face it, Ikea is a black whole.)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Hahaha! Oh I know it! Believe me, girl, if there was an IKEA closer to me, I’d be there once a month at LEAST! So excited for you sweets! Yay for real plates and furniture! Lol

  2. The feeling that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be is HUGE – congrats on being in such a wonderful place, my friend! I’m definitely itching for something more lately so we’ll see what July has in store for me! 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thank you so much, Katie!! I have to say, after a year of feeling like my life’s been a freaking roller coaster, it’s nice GREAT to finally feel like things are falling into place! So excited to see what the future holds for you, beautiful!

  3. You are so gorgeous, girl!!! 🙂 Time is flying over here, too, so it’s good to know I’m not the only one feeling that way!! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your adventures in July!

  4. Tina muir says:

    SO glad to find another member of cereal addictions not-so anonymous. I LOVE cereal, especially mixing them! I think we should compare ideas…haha! Do you often eat so much in one go that you feel sick afterwards…and know its coming, yet can’t stop? I definitely do! Interesting to read about your current loves, and yes, June has FLOWN by! Here is to a great July!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      “not-so anynymous” haha! Love it! And can you believe I only came to know the brilliance of cereal mixing a couple of years ago?! Like, what rock was I living under?! Lol! I’m trying to get better, but I have a bad habit of refilling my bowl about halfway through and then I’m overly stuffed by the time I get to the bottom! Have you ever tried sprinkling peanut flour (or PB2) on top of your bowl? SO GOOD!

  5. I’m trying to avoid the uber expensive persimmons in the store at the moment. I want them sooo bad and had a major addiction previous – so I think it’s time I took a nice wee break from them… also I am too tight with money to do it!

    I am excited about summer – sunshine makes me happy! 🙂

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Well, there are worse things to be addicted to! And hey, you only live once! Can’t take the money with ya when you’re gone…might as well life it up in persimmonville while you can! Lol

  6. We have figs all over right now! Maybe there are 2 burst? I dunno… not a farmer. Clearly.

    Love those marshmallows. A lot.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      They must be because Melissa just Snap Chatted (yep that is totally a verb now) me a pic of them at TJ’s the other day…I just wonder why I’ve never seen them around this time of year before…lord knows I’m always on the prowl for those and persimmons! Haha!

      And any time you want some more marshmallows, just say the word dearie! xoxo

  7. Looove those Lindt chocolates! I brought home a mixed pack from Minneapolis last year and they were awesome. The Cookies n Cream and the Crunchy Nougat = best things ever. Soooo good. Chocolate will always be my favourite guilty pleasure.

  8. okay.. we so need to plan a meet up! You need to teach me your kombucha and yoga ways. I can’t believe you are only on the 2nd book! The third is my FAVORITE! hurry, hurry!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      We really do! I’m typically free on Saturdays now so just let me know when would be the best time for you…and if you want to come to Nashville, I can make sure that Melissa comes up to visit too! 🙂

      Ok, and now I have more motivation to get through this book!

  9. I’m -just- getting back into cereal after a little bit of a hiatus. I had to cut myself off because my addiction was seriously getting out of control, so hopefully it doesn’t take over my life again 😉 I need those mini marshmallows, though. Oh, and chocolate… I’d like some more of that as well :mrgreen:

  10. So… I am definitely going to have to check out those flavors of gum. They sound fantastic! Does that brand hold its flavor for a long time?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      It’s actually pretty decent for a fruit-flavored gum. I was really disappointed with Stride’s fruitty line…the flavor was gone in less than one minute I swear! Juicy Fruit’s new bubble gum is pretty good too…but I can only chew half a piece at a time since it’s so big (twss!) 😉

  11. I am delighted that the finished my first year at university! Exams have been dealt, and started my summer 😉 Now I have so much free time that I first do not know what to do. Return to the world of blogging – a good idea, do you think?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, yay!! Congratulations, girlie! And how much fun to have the whole summer stretched out in front of you just waiting to be filled with activities! I say…do what makes you smile the most! 😀

  12. That sure is quite a blessing. 🙂 Sounds nice, and well… peaceful.

    My latest guilty pleasure has been ice cream. Every.damn.night. haha

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thanks girlie! After a hell of a year, I finally feel like things in my life are settling down and making sense…or maybe I’m just old and too tired to worry about it! Ha!

      Rock on with that ice cream girl…if my belly could take it, I’d be right there with ya! 🙂

  13. That chocolate looks fabulous. I am so so happy you are back on the fully caffeinated coffee train again. Life is better with coffee. And chocolate. Chocolate + coffee together? SWOON

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      A to the freaking MEN!! Preach on, sistah! Now, let’s have a coffee and chocolate party! I’ll bring the fondue! 😉

  14. Calee says:

    ahhh if i could only find persimmons. i think we’ve had this convo before. i bet they would make a good tomato substitute.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Yeah and I think I remember asking you if you’ve ever had them before because I’m not so sure they would. They only LOOK like tomatoes…the flavor is super sweet!

  15. kyla says:

    How excellent is that chocolate? The cookies and cream is my favourite! I’m currently excited about my rapidly approaching trip to Nepal (and a little stressed because time is going way too fast and i have so much to get organised).

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Right? It was seriously love at first bite! Haha! Oh wow, totally jealous of your upcoming adventure…one of these days I’ll get myself a passport and get the heck off US soil for some exploring of my own! 🙂

  16. Little Bookworm says:

    That cookies and cream Lindt bar sounds great! Congrats on the yoga as well. 🙂

  17. “I seem to have developed jaws of steel…” <– that is all

  18. Wow, you are just so much fun and that’s where your beauty comes from . It took me a while to figure out. and that fun side of you comes out to play even when you post on your blog! I love you don’t change 🙂

  19. Yes to coffee, chocolate, Broccoli bombs, and being exactly where you should be at the moment. Speaking of, I think I need a cup of coffee. 🙂

    Oh and I was totally hopefully for the naughty version of that title. Can I get a Fifty Shades of Heather.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Oh you salacious little devil you! How’s that we-both-know-how-you-actually-got-it stair burn! 😉

  20. Ha! I told you you didn’t actually hate chocolate and it’s obvious it was Lindt finally luring you over to the good side of life 😉 ! Welcome to the land of endless deliciousness. I’m a little disappointed by your choices, though. What is it about that ‘hello, my name is…’ line that draws everybody in? I only ever tried the Brownie flavour and wasn’t convinced at all.
    “I’m thinking of starting a petition to install little red buttons on the floor so that we can all hit them Jeopardy style just for such accomplishments” <- Do it! And can we broaden that petition to randomly installing those buttons everywhere so we can hit them for every even minor accomplisment [read: for every inch of space I clean in my apartment .. whew].
    You -know- that I'm currently way too excited about my new phone, haha.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Yes, red buttons EVERYWHERE!! And it’s funny you should mention the brownie Lindt chocolate…because that was my LEAST favorite out of them all! You have GOT to try the cookies and cream or the strawberry shortcake…I promise, they are both to die for!

  21. Kat says:

    Oh good, I was hoping that I wasn’t the only one that walked around the house pants-less. I mean, what are houses for, right? Except when your husbands best friend comes knocking at the door at 730am. That makes for an awkward encounter as you try to wrap a blanket around your waist real quick. Ya…Im just cold…that’s it…. 😉

  23. I love a good broccoli bombing….especially the vibrations from gmail during daylight hours for me 😉 That stupid Lindt chocolate…always hitting on me in the grocery store and today- they are half price! I’m excited to be moving from my shoebox or a slightly bigger shoebox…maybe a boot box?

    Current guilty pleasure- YOU ON SNAPCHAT. I am loving it and loving the random hoodie shout outs and firework displays.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Yay!! Hope those are some size 15 boots! And aww, you make me smile! I love harassing you on Snapchat! 😉
