Thinking Out Loud: The Calm Between the Storms

Hello there, loverlies!

I hope you are all having a great week and if not, well, tomorrow’s Friday, right? Though I won’t be looking forward to MY weekend ending and my workweek beginning, I am more than excited about my massage appointment tomorrow morning. It has been too long since I’ve slobbered all over my therapist’s massage table. CAN’T WAIT!

Since this is technically my Sunday, I’m going to give a little weekend recap Thinking Out Loud style soooo, the rambling starts….NOW!

TJ Maxx Mug

Saw this at TJ Maxx the other day and just had to get a picture. Oh sarcasm, how I love you so! If you can’t make fun of life sometimes, what’s the point, right?

And believe it or NOT, I walked out of the store empty-handed. I must’ve caught them on an off day because most of the shelves were lacking and then, I don’t know…with all the gloomy skies and rain we’ve been getting lately, I haven’t really been feeling like getting out and doing much.


So thank the dear Google gods for they’re technology advances! Jason and I bought a Chromecast the other day (because we’re sick of staring at my tiny ass computer screen whenever we want to watch Netflix) and omg, you guys, I’m addicted! It literally took minutes to set up and is so user-friendly AND your phone is basically your remote!

Wine and Popcorn

It also helps that I have free space on my lap now that I don’t have to hold my computer THISCLOSE to our faces…which of course makes more room for other things of equal much more importance. #treatyoself 😉

Me & Jason

Since Jason and I started dating, we’ve both put on our fair share of what we like to call “fat and happy” weight SO…we’ve been trying to balance out our couch time with some movement. We’ve been able to squeeze in a couple of walks lately, but it hasn’t been easy with all the sporadic rainstorms we’ve been getting. The trick? Walk a short track where the car is always within sprinting distance. So hey, if Mother Nature wants to fuck with you, you can just be like, “Eh, I was planning on a HIIT workout anyway, bitch!” Umm, yeah, sometimes I have conversations with personified entities.

Grilling Out

How about that #grillporn, huh?

Hamburger & Aspargus

Yep, it may have been only 50ish degrees (10 Celsius) outside last night, but we got our grill on! Sirloin burgers topped with Butterkaise (amazing) cheese served up with our favorite grilled veggie. And even though it was thrown together in minutes, it ended up being one of those meals that we talked about for the rest of the night.

On that note, I’ve got some leftovers that are all of a sudden calling my name from the fridge. Funny how that works. Be sure to hop on over to Spoons and fork you up a good dose of random ramblings. Ha, you see what I did there?


 And since I forgot to leave you guys with some good tuneage last week AND there is NO WAY I can keep this to myself, please, enjoy the musical talents of my favorite odd-looking guys with some insane electronic sounds, Joywave!

I’ve had their latest album on repeat since it released on Tuesday. While it’s hard to pick a favorite, I’ve gotta say this one is extra special since the chorus makes me think of Jason. 😉

Give me some highlights from your week!

  1. Chromecast is definitely an amazing invention!!! It’s also fun for when you’re looking at something funny on your phone and then you’re like- I can share it with THE WORLD (or really just everyone in the room)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Eh…”the” world…”your” world…it’s just a matter of perspective at any given time, isn’t it? But that definitely made me giggle!

  2. Rofl omg! I’m watching that music video, and let’s just say that I did NOT expect that craziness to start happening 😆 Ouch? And I know what you mean about the empty shelves… Sometimes I walk into stores like that and want to buy ALL the things, and other times it’s like… where’s all the good stuff? The latter is probably better for my wallet and clutter situation 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! I thought about giving a warning, but I wanted those who did watch it to be as surprised as I was! I swear my eyes almost popped out of my head when the first guy went down. Lol. And omg, so true about the clutter situation…here I am feeling the need to DEclutter! The last thing I need is to go wild and crazy buying all the things! 😆

  3. Grill Porn! Love it! I makes me want a grill, but that’s not going to happen, unfortunately! Also, I totally understand the “fat and happy” weight gaining shiz. I got married in November and about 6 weeks ago finally moved to Scotland to live with my hubby and even with loads of cardio we’re always eating (and drinking)! Oh well, at least we’re both in the same boat lol. I also love sarcasm, though I take a lot of heat for being so sarcastic. 🙂

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh wow! Congratulations on being reunited with your man. Hope you are enjoying every last bit of that “fat and happy”-ness! 😉 And I’m so glad to hear I’m not the only one with a dry sense of humor. I swear it’s beginning to be a lost art!

  4. That mug is cute! I agree, about dating! Pat and I were fine until we moved in together, then the “fat” happy pounds came on between ice cream and pizza nights. But we are better now 🙂 Life’s about a balance and you find it eventually when you are dating/ relationship lol 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      It’s all about living the moment, right? And the way I see it, as long as he still looks at me the way he did from the beginning, that’s all that really matters! 😀

  5. Agree with grill porn! I am drooling right now! And 10c is warm in Scotland so you have my permission to grill away! Perfectly acceptable! Haha!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Hey, there’s always the theory of layering. And well, there may or may not have been a couple of glasses of wine to keep us warm while we waited. 😉

  6. I hear you on the happy pounds… excpet I think Vegas has lost a few because I drag her to the gym. I’m just working on trying not to gain even more… LOL! Whatever. I’m having fun.

  7. Haha I can totally relate to the annoyance of watching Netflix on a laptop. We need a Chromecast too!

    Mmm those burgers. Think I know what I’m putting on the meal plan for next week – JZ will be happy lol! He always complains we eat too many vegetarian meals. 😛

  8. Not going to lie, I was jealous when I saw the mug.

    okay that musical video is cray cray…..So unexpected. Kind of like that ad where the guys fingers fell off lolololol!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Omg, I can’t believe you mentioned that commercial! When I saw it for the first time a few weeks ago, I LOST MY SHIT! I swear I laughed for days over it too!

  9. This whole post is like 100% our conversation the other day after IG biotch! And exactly why I love you.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Well maybe before you go slinging out the insults, you should stop and think about how special that must make you to know about thinks before they go “public”! 😛

      Ps, I love you too, biotch!

  10. oh sweet mother- #grillporn
