Hey guys!

You know the drill…it’s the end of the month (well, almost) so that means it’s time for another list of my “current” obsessions, revelations, and ponderings…enjoy! πŸ™‚

Current Book:

Fifty ShadesSeriously, since starting the Fifty Shades trilogy weekend before last, I just can’t be bothered with menial tasks…returning emails, cleaning house, bathing…though I HAVE found plenty of time to workout! πŸ˜‰

Current Music:

I continued with my love for Imagine Dragons into this month so I added them as a new Pandora station and then soon discovered The Glitch Mob…I’ve never really been into electronic music before, but now I’m totally obsessed!

Current Guilty Pleasure:Β 

Nail Polish

It’s not the fact that I can never pass up a sale sticker…and it’s not the fact that I now have three more bottles to add to my copious collection of nail polish…it’s the fact that my collection has gotten so large that now I’m forgetting what I have! Note the sparkly one on the right just happens to be the same sparkly one in the box on the left! Oops?

Current Nail Color:

That would be the one in the middle…I do De-Claire…yeah, I don’t watch Modern Family so I don’t really get the reference, but it’s pink and pretty! πŸ˜€

Current Drink:Β 

Mint Water

At the farmers market a few weeks ago, the man-friend ordered an orange drink of some kind that came with a sprig of mint…once he finished the cup, I stole it and added the mint to my Camelbak bottle…I haven’t had a sip of regular water since!

Current Food:

Greek Salad

After Wednesday’s post, I think it goes without saying that I’m totally obsessed with salads right now…here’s one that escaped posting: Kale and romaine topped with cucumber, tomato, and onion salad (marinated in Italian dressing) with feta and black olives!

Current Favorite Show:

Shockingly, I DID watch a bit of TV this month…last week, I totally used the man-friend for his subscription to Netflix (among Fifty other things) and got caught up on some episodes of Switched at Birth!

Current Wish List:

I wish I had more hours in the day…there are just too many things to do and not enough time to do them AND finish the last Grey book at the same time! πŸ˜‰

Current Needs:

A foot massage…see “current indulgence” below for explanation.

Current Triumphs:

Β During my talk with Jamie this afternoon something dawned on me…I have FINALLY learned how to be NICE to myself! As I was describing to her how I dealt with a few trying moments over the last few weeks, I noticed my attitude toward myself has changed. I have become a lot more forgiving of my shortcomings, understanding of my actions, and really nurturing myself. I began to get this huge grin on my face and after I finished what I had to say, we both erupted into a fit of hurrahs and hell yeahs!

And? I haven’t had a binge in over a week and a half! πŸ˜€

Current Bane of Existence:

Cat Hair Takeover

I’m drowning in @^*%#% cat hair! It’s everywhere!!!


Current Celebrity Crush:

Does Christian Grey count as a celebrity? Hmm, wonder who will play him in the movie?

Current Indulgence:

Rotary ParkΒ As you guys know, I’ve been enjoying lots of walks in the park. Well, today I decided to switch it up and go to a different park to walk some of the trails while talking with Jamie.

The setting was perfect…birds chirping…water trickling over the rocks in the creek…the wind whistling through the trees. When I hung up, I saw this barn…45 minutes later, I saw it again! See that map? Yeah, I started out at the TOP of the green! AndΒ this is NOT the first time this has happened! Perhaps I should stick with the paved walkways at the city park…what do you think?

Current Blessing:

GPS? πŸ˜‰

Current Slang:

Please see response to “bane of existence” for proof that I will never be considered a lady if it were up to my mouth…nevermind the fact that I sweat like a pig and burp like a man!

Current Outfit:

MeShades of Blue: Eh, right now I’m in my pj’s…but last night I pulled out some scrubs I haven’t worn in a while and felt really pretty…so I took a picture! πŸ˜‰

Current Excitement:

Ok, so as of yesterday I officially have permission to go public with some news I’ve been sitting on for over a month…in less than two weeks, I will be traveling to Minneapolis…by invitation of YOPLAIT!

I will fly in for two days, tour their test kitchens, talk all things Greek, AND have a chance to create a fun summery recipe of my own with their team of foodies, photographers, AND videographers! Ahhhh!

*insert nervous anticipation here*

Current Mood:

Fan-freakin’-tabulous! πŸ˜€

  3. At work we have “essence” water, which is just like your mint idea! They do some good combinations (watermelon and mint is awesome!) πŸ™‚ It’s so much easier to drink than plain water!

    P.S. I’m such a list person. I love your lists.

  4. Congratulations my friend! That is amazing news! I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to see what you come up with in that kitchen! Amazing!

    You know I love my nail polish, an addict over here!

    Currently I am still pregnant, overdue, and ready! <3

  10. Fran@BCDC says:

    I’m glad you’re being “nicer” to yourself, Heather…that’s a good thing. How exciting about the Yoplait trip!! I’m impressed! I LOVE the photo of you!! How pretty! Have a great day!

  11. Oh my gosh congrats on getting selected to go on that trip!!! I am so excited for you. And I can’t wait to hear about it! πŸ˜€

    Also I’m really happy about all your progress with how you treat yourself. I’m still working on that too and I know how hard it is, so kudos!

  12. Congrats on Yoplait!
    Right before he deployed my spouse picked up a glass infusing pitcher from BB&B, and I’ve stuffed the central pole . . . . I’ve filled the infusion chamber with bruised mint leaves weekly since. It lives in my fridge and is delicious. I got the idea from Meghan’s zingers.

  13. Eric says:

    Congrats on the trip!

  14. You seem so excited and happy! Fan-freakin’-tabulous is a mood I like my broccoli to be in =)

    I am so excited for your trip to Yoplait! You are going to have an awesome time.

    Seriously – I read the Fifty Shades trilogy in 1 week on vacation last year. They are so hard to put down. I am really ready for the movie to come out already!

  15. Love that picture of you. Captures your fabulous mood perfectly πŸ˜€

    And that is so exciting about Yoplait! Whoa. You are so lucky and that trip is destined to be awesome. Are you going to be able to share the recipe you create on your blog?

    I have officially decided that I am going to give 50 Shades a try sometime. Maybe not soon, but I have no longer ruled it out like I had done previously. There must be something about it that has people addicted and I am very curious to find out what!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I was really skeptical at first, but it really is a good story! You’ll have to let me know what you think!

      Thanks girlie! I think I’ve narrowed down what I’m going to make and honestly, it is MY recipe so I don’t see I wouldn’t be able to share it on MY blog (just let them TRY to give me lip over it! Ha!), but so as not to ruin the surprise, I’ll wait until I get back from the trip to share! πŸ˜€

  16. lindsay says:

    yay for yoplait! need a partner in crime? I like yogurt. Oh that salad and your current triumph! woo!

  17. Allie says:

    Yoplait is flying you places?? Dude, ROCK ON. We will have to meet up when you get back so you can tell me all about it! I mean, I know I’ll READ all about it, but that was really just an excuse to say, let’s do fun summer things again soon! And I feel your cat-hair pain. I picked up my mom’s cat for two seconds and still can’t get all the fur off my shirt. Seriously, two seconds! But it’s like a cat hair jungle just grew on me…

  18. I am currently loving every hot drink imagineable – chai lattes, hot tea, hot chocolate – because it is SO cold.

    And I’m also LOVING big overcoats that allow you to wear 101 layers underneath because it’s so necessary in this rainy miserable Sydney weather!

    How exciting that you’ll be heading off to Minneapolis! You need to convince them they need to fly this Aussie blogger over to join πŸ˜‰ And Ms Pancake Queen – do you even need to ask that question? You should wow them with your pancake creations!!

  19. So happy & excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Currently I am probably having too much sugar and red wine but I’m ok with it as I move towards intuitive eating.

    I would so love a foot massage too. Actually a full body massage would be great. Your walking trail sounds so beautiful.

    My nails are in serious need of painting, you reminded me with your purchase.

  21. Nothing quite like a little Fifty Shades and some salacious salads to get your mojo back. A little paid vacation from Yoplait doesn’t hurt either. That is an awesome opportunity and well deserved. I can’t wait to hear all about it.

  22. jodie says:

    I was so depressed when 50 Trilogy was over for me!

    Minneapolis! That’s me! Lemme know if you need any ideas:)

  23. Bryn says:

    hooray for your trip!!! I live in MPLS, and consider it one of the foodiest places around…I’m sure Yoplait is treating you to some amazing meals, but if you need any ideas…let me know!

    Also, our farmer’s markets rock! Enjoy the Twin Cities!!!
