Choppin' Broccoli

Do any of y'all remember that SNL bit where Dana Carvey is a singer with a new song about chopping broccoli. Every time I am with my mom and there is broccoli to be cut up, we start singing it.

Friday, I wasn't chopping broccoli,but I was jamming out while I chopped other veggies to take over to my future in-laws to help out with food since they had a new baby. I had the music turned up so loud that it kept setting off our alarm system. Loud noises make it beep and so does opening an exterior door. Every time it went off, I thought "Oh Rand is home." and I would stick my head around the corner. I must have done it about 5 times before I realized that I had my Daft Punk was the cause, not the front door opening. If you care to rock out with me, this is what was causing the beeping:

What I Wore While Chopping Vegetables:

I was just singing "Choppin' Broccoli" to a friend playing Farmville last week. Funny how that song lives on!

magnolia said...

Luvs Choppin Broccoli. Wedding shoes? In white maybe? Flats? Just curious. :)

Yes, I remember that song.
Also, I LOVE Daft Punk.
Amazing. I hope you find another pair!~

Joanna said...

Haha! I love that sketch. One of my old friends and used to sing it constantly! And I love Daft Punk, too :)

Sherylyn said...

Heh...I was singing the song as soon as I read your title.
I love the brooch, and how you used it!

Jess said...

I also like the rock out to Daft Punk, but honestly who doesn't?

I love the two cardis- very fun layering!

I am sad on your behalf about the shoes- they are soooooo cute!

Brooke said...

Great layering in this outfit!

Tina said...

Kimberly - It is a great cardi! It's so comfy too.

Sewfast - hahah. I had forgotten about Pepper Boy.

Kristin - I've been tempted to try Farmville, but I'm worried I might get addicted. LOL

Shawnee - yep! Colored wedding shoes. I really want yellow or green but I'm having trouble finding what I want, so I thought I would try these. But I think I may have found some yellow ones!!

Erin - My sister found a pair of tellow flats yesterday that I think I am going to order. With RHINESTONES!!!!!

Joanna - The good stuff lives on and on!

Sherlyn - thanks! I'm trying to get a little more creative in my brooch use. I think this worked.

Jess - thanks! I was really sad about the shoes too. They are horribly painful, which flats should never be. There's no excuse for flats to hurt.

Brooke - thanks! I've been wanting to try the double cardi thing for awhile now.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!~ I am so excited at the prospect of your crazy wedding shoes!~
