May: Blends, Balance, and Blessings

Hello there, my pretties!

Is it just me or has this month FLOWN by?! I mean, it seems like just yesterday I was breathing in the mountain air and now here it is, almost time for new month to start…which meeeeeeeans it’s time for another Currently post!

Sock Bun Selfie

First and foremost, I gotta give my girl Kait a shout out for teaching me how to rock my socks…in my hair! With the Tennessee humidity already increasing, I’m pretty sure this will be my look for summer.

Current Book:

I’m still powering my way through the first Game of Thrones book and I have to say I’m pretty proud of myself for making it a quarter of the way through in only a couple of weeks. I usually have a hard time reading a book after watching the movie (show, in this case), but even though I know what’s going to happen, I’m still flipping pages like a mad woman!

Current Music:

I have been ALL OVER THE PLACE with my music lately. Rocking out Misterwives, Alt-J, Borgore, and even Justin Beiber…though I will save face and tell you it’s the awesome beat from Skrillex/Diplo I’m more interested in!

Current Guilty Pleasure:

May Current Guilty Pleasure - Snapchat

I think I’d have to go with harassing my closest friends on Snapchat on a daily basis…it only seems to further my selfie addiction. 😉

Current Entertainment:

Umm, guys? I may need a social media intervention soon. Instagram, “I just can’t quit you!” Lol. But seriously, since I did a little following purge and dropped about 100 people out of my feed, I’m seeing all the stuff I WANT to see now…to include all the fun posts from my fellow Blends!

Current Wish/Needs:

Ohhh, I’m keeping this my little secret for now. You know what they say, if you tell it, it won’t come true. 😀

Current Food:

Salad with Protein ChipsI love the fact that when I look at my photos from the last month, the food pictures are all over the place! There’s been delicious homemade enchiladas, pizza, oatmeal, bagels, sandwiches, cereal, sushi, and even more yet I seem to always come back to my veggie-loving ways…or as Jason calls it, my “rabbit food”. Ha!

Current Drink:

Barnie's Coffee

Oh coffee, how do I love thee? Not this particular flavor so much, but still, your warmth every morning envelopes me like passionate embrace. How lucky I am to have such a dark and handsome love AND a boyfriend who’s pretty hot too. 😉

Current Triumphs: 

I think yesterday’s post really says it all. I still can’t help but find my new state of “normal” a bit surreal. Like, wow, I finally made it. It’s crazy how everything seemed to fall right into place the minute I stopped obsessing about it all.

Current Bane of Existence:

Mama Bird Strikes AGAIN!!

Godd@#* Motherf@%&ing B!tch BIRD!

Current Blogger Crush:

Kait. And not just because she picked me up from the airport in Colorado, gave me a place to stay, and let me love on her adorable little polar bears…I mean PUPS! No, since coming back from Blend, I feel like our friendship has grown immensely and I couldn’t be more grateful. Love you girlie!

Current Indulgence:

Wine Fest Loot

I Heather Powers, do solemnly swear NOT to buy any more wine for the next…year. Oh wow, a whole year? Don’t you think that seems a bit long? What if there’s a sale? What if the apocalypse comes? What if I start using the bottles as weights? I do need to work on these sexy baby biceps I got over here. 😉

Current Blessing:

May 2015 Current Blessings

Family, friends, love, laughter. I really do feel like I’m the luckiest girl alive!

Current Outfit:

Gym Selfie - Soybu Leggins

Confession: Though it’s been two weeks since I decided to overhaul my wardrobe and embrace my inner hippie, I’ve spent the majority of the month in work out clothes, but hey, at least I’m getting good use out of my new kicks. See them? Also, I’m LOVING my new workout bottoms from Blend. They don’t call them “killer caboose” leggings for nothing! 😉

Current Excitement:

Well, how about in ONE week and THREE days, Jason and I will have those cute little monkeys up there for a WHOLE MONTH?! And I only thought I had a month of adventures this month. Can’t wait to go swimming, stomp in creeks, cuddle up for movie nights, and whatever else we decide to throw in there! 😀

Current Link:

Killer Caboose Leggings

Current Mood:

GAHHHHHH! <- Is that a mood? 😉

Alright you guys, that’s a wrap! I’ve got places to be and then a bed to crash back into before work tonight. But first, three cheers for getting this 700-word post up in UNDER two hours! Woot woot!

What is your “current” blessing?

What food do you keep coming back to lately?

    Love love love the thoughts lady, your hair is just always so pretty I love it! Also it was so good to see you out in Boulder again this year and keep up with you on the blog keep on keeping on!

  2. Oh I love those leggins too! I basically live in them.

    Since I have all these Flapjacked Pancake Mixes at home (and just a huge package of SWAG arrived here in Swizzyland) I started to make Pancakes all over again! They don’t look as pretty as when I make my own mix, but for my lazy kitchen mood they’re perfect!

    Current blessing is sunshine – we got lots of it and I can do my Cadio in the pool and deepen my tan at the same time :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ahhhh, my ghostly white legs are so jealous right now. It’s sunny here too but sooooooo humid! Ick. I think I’m gonna hit up my Flapjacked mix stash this week and whip up some cakes for the girls. Wish I’d gotten my hands on some of that carrot cake mix tho!

  3. I haven’t put the leggings on yet. Sounds like I need to give them a whirl, especially if they give me some junk in the trunk.

    Also I know what you mean about looking through your food pictures and seeing so much fantastic variety. Veggies are the bomb, especially on pizza and smothered in cheese. Balance is real. :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Right? And the fact that the variety comes without thinking shows me that I’m finally out of my little hole (the one I only saw once I dug my way out). But you’re still my balanced foodie idol. 😉

      Get yo little ass in some leggings. So comfy. I mean, it’s basically like going pantless…which I know you’re a fan of. Lol

  4. I have managed to avoid getting sucked into snapchat so far but instagram… Man I’m hooked!
    My current blessing is my husband and his positivity – sometimes everything seems to get a little crazy but he makes me realise things are always a -ok and keeps me grounded!
    And right now I always keep coming back to eating kale… I want to eat it with everything! Guess it’s not a bad thing to be obsessed with something that’s so good for you!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha, yep, I’d say there are far worse things to get addicted to! Lol. I just bought a whole bunch of kale at the farmer’s market last weekend. One of my farmer friends saved it especially for me because I’m always asking for it. Only now, it’s been so long since I’ve had it that I’m not sure what I’ll do with it first!

      That sounds like the perfect balance with you and your hubby. Grounding is so important. And yeah, totally hear ya on the IG addiction. Can’t stop. Won’t stop! Lol
