What Exactly is Normal?

It couldn’t possibly be taking multiple pictures of yourself in Photo Booth trying to achieve your best “perplexed” look…

Hmm, so in other words…boring.

Of course you guys KNOW I am anything but normal…I mean, heck, I write love stories about peanut butter for God’s sake! But you know what? I think my life is a bit mor fun on the “abnormal” side.

If I were normal…

I wouldn’t take a picture of myself just to show how excited I was to babysit Pete and RE-Pete this evening.

I most assuredly wouldn’t have documented my pack-n-go dinner for such an occasion.

I probably wouldn’t have lost myself in a moment of playing Matchbox cars while I fantasized of cruising down the freeway in a life-size version of the car of my dreams.

Maybe I wouldn’t have encouraged multiple poses in a Spiderman photo shoot for the boys…this was the best one of oh, about a dozen! πŸ˜‰

And I sure as heck wouldn’t have found myself in a grocery store in the middle of the night doing a little retail therapy* after finding out my time with these little munchkins has come to an end.

*Some people buy shoes, others purchase clothes, I scout out manager markdowns at my local supermarket! πŸ˜‰

Yep, that’s right…mom and dad’s bible study group has come to an end, meaning they will be home with the boys on Wednesday nights from now on. I only pray that the hints of my being available for date nights/unexpected meetings/trips to the store for milk…will work out for me in the near future!

Because I’m seriously gonna miss these little super hero, carrot-chomping cuties!

They said my carrots gave them extra super powers…

Just like I’m pretty sure chocolate chips give this fro-yo the power to knock my socks off! πŸ˜‰

FYI: “Peanut Buttery Swirls” = absolute tongue tantalizing Heaven!

Of course the most obvious picture of my abnormal behavior would be that I Instagrammed every single one of the pictures on this post!

What’s one thing that makes you “abnormal” aka FUN?

Have you tried Ben & Jerry’s Greek Fro-Yo yet?
What’s your favorite flavor?

  1. I don’t think the question is “What makes me abnormal”… I think it should be “What makes me normal” because that would be a much shorter list. πŸ˜‰

    I haven’t seen that Greek fro yo in Canada yet but I’m dying to try it!

  2. I need to try the fro yo! I love Ben & Jerrys! Went to their factory in Waterbury, VT when my hubs and I were out there a while back. TOO MUCH FUN. Um..moving on. Me abnormal? I’M NOT. Bahahaha. OK I might be. I’m mostly just a goofball and I’m not afraid to laugh ta myself. Life’s too short! And I’m short! So let’s be cool and tall in personality! …or something (o_O) .. I need coffee.

      Haha! You’re cracking me up girl! I’d have to say (at least from the perspective of those on the outside) just being a blogger already makes us a little weird! Lol

  3. Absolutely love the photos in this post!!
    I do grocery retail therapy too! I could spend hours in any grocery store. Cheers to common abnormalities girlfriend.
    Another one I have is weird noises I make that soundtrack my life. Squealing, growling, etc.
    I’m still on the look out for ben and jerrys fro yo.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ahhh, so good to hear that I’m not the only one who loses myself amongst the aisles of nut butter, produce, and cereals!

      It took me FOREVER to find the fro-yo and then when I DID see it, it was like $5 for a pint! Um, no thank you! Luckily(?) these were on sale…but I might have to go back! πŸ˜‰

  4. I was eating dinner last night and got on Instagram to take a pic of it and I had to scroll through your babysitting photos β€”Β because they are the BEST!

  5. To hell with normal! Bo-ring! You are anything but πŸ™‚ Cute pics and cute boys! You always seem to have such a blast babysitting. I wish I could be the same when I babysit. Maybe that’s the reason why I don’t babysit like ever anymore haha

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Well, I have been out of the game for a while now…so it’s still new to me. If I did it more often (and with other kids) I’m sure I wouldn’t be as excited…unless you know, they were really really cool! πŸ˜‰

  6. Reasons why I love your blog. *sigh*.
    Pete and RePete are the cutest. I definitely miss the two little girls I was Nannying here in London before they moved πŸ™
    Which grocery store is this that offers markdowns? I do the SAME thing here in London (I swear they must think I’m crazy or something) but don’t know if mine in the states has it. LOVE Marshals/TJ Maxx for that reason though.
    and Greek Froyo? WAHHHH
    I smell books. But it makes me appreciate them more. And I’m sure bookstores love having a truly die hard fan πŸ˜‰

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Kroger is my go-to for killer manager specials…sometimes it’s just that they’re getting close to the expiration date, but heck, I’ve bought like 25 things of Chobani (not kidding) that was due to expire for like 89 cents each and I was eating on them a month later! And I’m still alive to tell the tale! πŸ˜‰

      Ahhh, I LOVE the smell of old bookstores…or brand new textbooks. Yes, I’m a nerd!

      Love you girl!

  7. Oh my I have such jealousy! I’ve wanted to try the B&Js for like, ever now but I can’t justify spending $5 on a pint of ice cream :c
    Boo for no more pete & re-pete….they’re just so cute!

  8. amy says:

    those boys are so cute i love their outfits!! i wanna try that ben and jerrys greek frozen yogurt sooo bad…pb swirls sounds amaaaazing

  9. I have a saying: “Normal is average, and average is a C, and no one wants to be a C. So who wants to be normal?!” =)

  10. that ben and jerrys frozen greek yogurt is SO on my shopping list now! πŸ˜‰

  11. That pack-n-go lunch is ADORABLE! Where the heck did you get those little pouches!?

    Also that is MY kind of retail therapy. I am pretty sure I spend much more money buying food for fun than clothes for fun. πŸ˜‰

    My lunches that I pack for school make me abnormal, haha I get tons of questions, because most high schoolers don’t enjoy the veg like I do I guess(: It’s nothing crazy to the blog world, just to them. I’ve tried Ben and Jerry’s raspberry dark chocolate froyo and that was ah-mazing!

  14. I am clearly not normal–which is why we were meant to be blogmates–and I definitely thought to myself “I totally saw all of these on Instagram,” which also means I’m stalking you.
