Thinking Out Loud: I Can SEE!

And it’s time for another edition of Thinking Out Loud!

Heeeeeeeeeere’s JOHNNY HEATHER!


FOUR eyes are better than two!

I’ve been trying to come up with an idea for a costume for Halloween for months now…ok, that’s not entirely true. I actually just keep forgetting that I need to come up with an idea for a costume for Halloween. Think these’ll do?

Coffee Creamer

Could someone PLEASE tell me why I keep buying coffee creamers when I prefer my coffee black?

I keep seeing all these flavored coffee creamers in the stores and I can’t help myself but be curious. Then, when I get home with it and add it to my coffee, I’m A.) bummed that I have to reheat my mug in the microwave because it’s no longer hot enough and B.) disappointed that my coffee doesn’t taste like COFFEE! To remedy this, I’ve taken to drinking 2/3 of my mug black and THEN adding the creamer to the last few swallows.


Retail therapy is a real thing.

Last week, I was really moody for some reason. Just one of those No Good Very Bad Days, ya know? So I took some time to myself and ended up at Tuesday morning to buy ALL THE THINGS…that just so happened to color coordinate. 😉

PB Ginger Chews

Sometimes happy dances are not only expected but completely necessary.

Any of you how have ever shopped at TJ Maxx for peanut butter ginger chews knows just how much of a search it can be. How about I’ve been looking for these off and on for the past FOUR MONTHS and the moment I stop looking, I stumble over four packages!

Food Network Magazine

Food rut? What food rut?

After posting about my food rut yesterday, I took a good long look at the latest Food Network magazine and? I can’t to cook EVERYTHING! Knowing me though and how easily I can get visually over-stimulated and not make anything, I think I’ve decided to try making the Caribbean Beef Stew first! What better way to reenter the culinary world than by means of the slow cooker?

Gum - Problems

Have your dessert and chew it too!

Ok, so I totally ripped that one off the inside of the Extra packet, but DAMN! All these new flavored gums are just too much! Clearly I have issues.

Another day, another concert!

While I’ve never been much of the concert-going type of person, tonight I will be going to my second out of three for the month. Perhaps you remember me telling you guys about Shakey Graves? Well, I’ll be seeing him LIVE tonight and I can’t wait!


Be sure to hop on over to Spoons and check out all the other links today! Hope you guys have a great weekend! 😀

What’s the last concert you went to?

Are you dressing up for Halloween? What are you going as?

    I need to go out and find those seasonal pumpkin gums…I’ll probably buy as many as possible to keep them on hand. I haven’t been out much to look for them but now that I’m almost recovered from surgery I’ll be out more! I love the ginger chews, but haven’t tried the peanut butter, but I’ll have to look for them!

  2. Retail therapy IS a real thing!! It’s my favorite way to get rid of the blues. OR, as you say a happy dance – wanna see the one I made lately at the gym? Be prepared and check the video in my post:

    Have fun at the concert tonight! Last concert I went to was Sunrise Avenue, the finnish cuties. LOVED IT!!!

  3. ARE YOU SERIOUS about the fall flavoured gum?!?! Whyyyyyy do we not get anything like that up here in Canadaland? It’s like fall is no big deal to these people! Maybe because we’re too busy preparing for the 6 months of winter we’ll soon have to deal with, but still! I want cinnamon roll gum! And that’s brilliant about saving the coffee creamer for thel sat few sips. I definitely prefer my coffee black too. I even get upset if my cappuccinos aren’t dry enough…

  4. I NEED that pumpkin spice creamer… i can’t find any anywhere! lol. Glad to know that brand has it! 🙂

  5. SOOOOO jealous about Shakey Graves!! I LOOOOOOVE that song!!

      Omg, can you believe he surprised us all and brought Esme out on stage with him halfway through the concert? I was jumping up and down like a giddy school girl! Lol

    That bag. Kills. LOVE me a good bag!!

  7. I’m with you on the cold coffee. Nothing bugs me more than having to reheat it. I have a K-cup and a traditional filter brew pot. I started adding my creamer (when I decide to use one) to my mug while my coffee is brewing (for the filter brew) that way by the time the pot is done brewing the creamer is now room temp. When I pour the coffee in it heats it up. When I make K-cup, I put the creamer in first and the coffee from the K-cup machine comes out so damn hot that the splash of creamer at the bottom of my cup keeps it from burning my tongue!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh Chrystal, you’re a GENIUS! I can’t believe I’ve never thought to add the coffee to the mug while I’m waiting for it to brew. I’ll have to try that! And holy crap, I know what you mean about the Keurigs! I always play with my friends’s K-cups when I’m over at their houses and man that shit comes out scalding! 😯

  8. Fiery peanut butter?? Holy cow, that is a new one to me!! How is it?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I know, right? I’ve seen it all over the place on blogs and Instagram but never in any stores around here until now. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll be sure to let you know how it is when I do! 🙂

  9. I’m stuck on Halloween costume ideas too! I think I’m going to devote a solid chunk of time this weekend to Pinteresting it up to find some ideas haha.

    Also those creamers sound amazing. Wish we had them up here!

  10. I need the cinnamon roll flavoured gum….the thing I love about the gum you guys have, it TASTES like what it claims- here, even the strawberry tastes like mint. Stupid.

    You should dress up as a sriracha bottle.
