Thinking Out Loud: Confessions

Hey guys, remember me?

I’m just gonna be straight with you…it’s hard as HELL to get back into the swing of things after taking most of the summer off from blogging. I’ve been staring at a blank screen for an hour or so now and that’s not including the time I spent cleaning the house, scrolling through Pinterest, scrolling through Instagram, and walking into the kitchen to peer into the fridge…otherwise known as Heather’s top procrastination techniques.

So maybe if I just come clean about a few things, we can all forgive, forget, and forge on. Sound good to you? Sounds good to me. Ok. Deep breath. Here goes.

I confess…

That in the last few weeks I’ve felt a stirring within me to get back in the kitchen…perhaps brought on by my rekindled Pinterest romance. Yet, the few times I’ve actually had the opportunity to try out a recipe, I’ve just not been in the mood.

I confess…

That I accepted praise from Jason for a meal that he actually cooked. In my defense, it took a good four to five jars of random condiments to come up with a good peanut sauce since I accidentally left the jar of store-bought stuff at his apartment.

Labor Day Chicken & Rice

I confess…

That I made him wait at least five minutes for allow me time to take pictures of HIS plate in the backyard because it looked prettier than mine.

I confess…

That I just reworded that last sentence about ten times. Grrrr!

Rocksbox Selfie

I confess…

That I’ve found yet another way to further my addiction with shiny sparkly things. I received my second Rocksbox delivery yesterday and I’m absolutely in love! Full review will be coming soon.

I confess…

That the above picture is only one of the TWENTY-FIVE shots that were taken after donning my new jewels.


I confess…

That I’ve spent more time this month in and around books than ever before. After telling Jason about it for more than a year now, I finally took him to McKay’s Books in Nashville last week. While he had the typical overwhelmed response of a first-timer and walked out empty-handed, I managed to find eight books under $1 and one for $4!

I confess…

That I DEVOURED Summer Sisters in just over twenty-four hours and have since moved on to One Day. Also? I got more than a little amusement out of the fact that a character out of each book share the same last name. Like whoa! 😯

FroyoI confess…

That most of my Berry Bear cups are 50/50 froyo to toppings. That I never even see fruit as an option. That I got a little miffed they were out of cookie dough.That I went specifically to try the horchata gelato and I actually liked the toppings more. And that regardless, the entire cup was gone in about five minutes.

I confess…

That my computer is driving me fucking crazy for the last few months because everything I do seems takes double the amount of time to register with the damn thing. You really don’t want to know how long it took me to add these last two confessions.

And now, I must end this before I throw my laptop out the back door. Besides, I’ve got a “Music Monday” post that I’d REALLY like to get ready before I leave for Loufest tomorrow…and I need every ounce of patience I still have left. And you? Well you have a bunch of links to check out over at Spoons, don’tcha?


What will you confess today?

  1. I miss yo face! But I know what you mea about it being tough as heck to get back into blogging if you fall out of the swing of things. Sounds like life is treating you pretty fabulously, though, so I’m super happy to hear that 😀

      Awww, thanks lady! I miss yo face too! So much! Life has definitely carried me away lately. Though it does suck that my computer won’t even cooperate when I do have the time to catch up on blogs. You don’t even want to know how long it took me to load your page to do the link up. I think it’s about time I took this thing to the Apple Doctor. Ugh

  2. That froyo looks delicious! I haven’t had one yet this summer and now i’m dying to get my hands on a bowl! I confess that I haven’t shaved my legs in a week.. oops.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ohhhh girl, you better get on that quick! Summer will be over before you know it. Though I will say that I tend to crave froyo/ice cream more during the winter when I have to bundle up in like three layers before I can enjoy it. Lol

  3. I confess I actually love the fro yo more than the toppings! but I seem to be the odd one out on that front!

  4. It’s always nice to see a post from you. Enjoy the books, the music show, the rest will come.

  5. Pingback: Music Monday: The Loufest 2nd Edition |

  6. I confess I don’t remember when was the last time I commented on your blog and I feel really bad about that. Missing our early morning (for me at least) Viber messages. But I’m really happy for all the happiness in your life – you deserve it.
    While I don’t know all of the books you picked I can assure you The Help is a-maz-ing. Another twenty-four hour read??!
    And that last confession? Don’t even get me started on the topic of slow/constantly crashing laptops …

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      MP!! How good it is to see your comment popping up in my inbox! No need to feel bad. I’ve been out of touch as well. Life has really just picked me up and taken me away lately. Thank you so so much. I honestly don’t know that I’ve ever been this happy before. I hope you are doing well, friend. You know…I’ve still got some international stamps I bought for a special someone. I think it’s about time we started up our letters again! 🙂

      • Gmail or some other technical devil is evil and didn’t show me you’d replied. Letters? Yesss! You know … I may or may not still hoard some seasonal stickers for a special someone, too 😉 …
