June: Rapunzel, Pizza, and Poison


Don’t hate me, but I actually wasn’t going to post today…BUT THEN I realized that it’s the last day of June and if I didn’t get this currently post up, I was going to hate myself…and end up bombarding you with millions of pictures for my next post…which I may end up doing anyway. You don’t mind, right?

So this summer has been FLYING by! The girls have kept Jason and me running and dancing and laughing and yeah, we’re having a blast! Also, I think at some point they slipped some Miracle Grow in my morning coffee because…

Long Hair Selfie

Holy Rapunzel Hair! Guess I’ll be breaking out the selfie stick before too long if I want all of it to fit in the frame of my pics, huh? 😉

Current Book:

Game of Thrones Box Set

I’m still making my way through A Game of Thrones…only 100 pages left to go! And to think, I let it intimidate me for so long. To celebrate my bookworm victory, I gifted myself with this book set last week. Ain’t they purrrrrdy?

Current Music:

In addition to the ten songs I gave you earlier this month for my summer playlist, (which, by the way, was my 1000th post!!!) you can go ahead and add this one too. I have to say I haven’t liked anything by Madonna in a lonnnnng, but this is just too damn catchy.

Current Guilty Pleasure:

Gym Selfie

I’ve realized in the last few weeks that if I’m going to maintain any form of sanity, I have to get in some sweat therapy at least every 3-4 days. To do this, I’ve been sneaking out of the house on the mornings I wake up first and scooting off to the gym for a bit. I usually make it home in time to feed the clan as they shuffle into the kitchen with bed head…Jason included. 😉

Current Entertainment:

Since the summer days (and a lot of the nights) have been sweltering, we’ve been forced to keep our fun indoors and since we can’t really afford to drop $100 for dinner and a movie every week, there has been many a movie night at home along with coloring, board game playing, and fort building…that last one being my favorite.

Current Wish/Needs:

To shave my legs…but I can’t…because they’re covered with poison ivy blisters! Wahhhhhhhhhhh!

Current Food:

Chicken HelperPersonalized Pita PizzasHamburger & AsparagusBreakfast Burritos

I have to say I’m a bit impressed with myself for cooking more at home this summer. I’ve taken a couple of semi-homemade shortcuts with spruced up Chicken Helper (added chickpeas and veggies) and personalized pita pizzas, but those burgers and breakfast burritos (complete with BACON) were alllllllll me!

 Current Drink:

Strawberry Smoothie

Current Triumphs:

One of the hardest things to do is to get Jason and the girls out the door and somewhere we have to be ON TIME, but a couple of weeks ago when we went over to my parent’s house for lunch, I got us there with FIVE MINUTES to spare! Never mind the fact that I had to start the process two and a half hours before we walked out the door. Lol

Current Bane of Existence: 

Sick - Meds

No one likes being sick, but try being sick in the middle of summer vacation! After about five days of self-medicating, I finally gave up and went to the doctor. He told me I had one of the worst sinus/ear infections he’s ever seen. I got TWO shots in the butt AND a round of antibiotics. I’m feeling a lot better than I was, but I still can’t hear well out of my left ear. To top it off, last Saturday while I was mowing the lawn, I got into some poison ivy. It’s bad. Somebody shoot me.

Current Blogger Crush:

Alright, so I know she was just featured back in January, but I’m gonna have to remind you guys about the love, adoration, and this time a little jealousy I have for Miss Snack Therapy Carly. Have you guys SEEN her new apartment?! I’ve lived in my house for over four years now and still don’t know what I’m doing with the place. Come over and decorate for me, my love? I’ll let you raid the cheese drawer in the fridge as payment! 😀

Current Indulgence:


Ooey gooey melty CHEEEEEESE! Yep, pizza has been on the menu more than a couple of times a week this summer. Sometimes of the personalized pita variety, sometimes of the frozen variety,  and sometimes of the smack-yo-mama-good variety at a new pizza place in town!

Current Blessing:

I’ve all but said this before, but…motherhood. These two little girls may not “be” mine, but they ARE mine and always will be. And there’s your monthly dose of sappiness. 😉

Current Outfit:

Leggings On the days where I want to feel a little more put together (read: something other than workout clothes), I just open up the Leggings Drawer and take my pick. Yeah, there is officially a “Leggings Drawer” now. I haven’t decided if it’s admirable or embarrassing how many pairs I own.

Current Excitement:

Chutes & Ladders

I always wanted a family game night when I was little, but since my parents worked opposite schedules, it never really worked out, but thanks to the unforgiving heat (?) we’ve been having game nights…and days and afternoons all summer! Confession: This was my first time EVER playing Chutes & Ladders!

Current Mood:


Now I’m off to do some meal planning, fix a smoothie, and slather myself in copious amounts of calamine lotion…definitely NOT all in that order!

What has been your “current indulgence” this month?

How have you been enjoying the summer? Any cool (temperature AND wow factor) ideas for fun activities?

  1. I’ve been all about pizza too! It’s funny you mention pita pizzas because we just made some over the weekend. And then we had real pizza yesterday while moving to our new apartment. Pizza is seriously the best moving fuel!

    That’s so cute that you’re doing family game nights with Jason and the girls. I bet the girls love it! 🙂

      “Our new apartment”?! Ahhhhh, congratulations girlie! Ugh, I’ve got to get caught up in the land of Chelsea soon! I’ve been out of the blog loop for too long now!

  2. Wooooow look at your hair – BEAUTIFUL!!! You should be sponsored by the freaking most expensive hair care.

    And you meals look so delicious!! Totally going for that pita bread pizza.
    Sorry you’ve been sick – it’s the worst in summer! I was attacked by the flu in the middle of my CrossFit Team Swiss Championship last Saturday. Fun.

    My lunchtime swims and sunbathing are my Summer highlight currently. So nice to get out!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ahhh, gotta love swim time! Probably my favorite thing to do during the summer! And yes, I’d be more than willing to take any and all freebies from those expensive hair care companies…just find me a sponsor! Lol

  3. Hot damn, your hair is gorgeous! You are looking fierce my dear, and I’m glad you’re having such a blast with the Fam Jam.

    The gym is my sanctuary too. I need that good old fashioned exercise to get my head straight. Kudos to you for finding a way to slip it in.


  4. I am right there with you, I have 4 kids, if we are going to be on time, anywhere, I have to start the getting ready process at least 2 hours before we have to leave. Have a great weekend!
