Mr. Natural

Okay okay, I know… I’ve posted a lot! But I have one more thing to say today!

This morning I tweeted that today was going to be a great day! And it has been!

I got out of my chem lab a whopping two hours early! I decided to bike a different route home to try and find a health food store I had driven past once!

It’s called Mr. Natural and it’s a store/restaurant/bakery! The store itself was more like all natural supplements and such, so I wasn’t too interested. However, I was drawn to the menu!

The restaurant looks delicious, but I was only wanting a snack before I rode the rest of the way home.

All the bakery items were made with simple, wholesome ingredients and were almost all vegan! {The restaurant is all vegetarian!}

I asked for the chocolate chip cookie, but the lady gave me the chocolate chip scone. I wasn’t complaining. I love scones. It was almost vegan, too. But it had honey!


It was so dense and delicious. I ate about half of it in the sunshine by my bike before I rode home and ate the other half!

It was amazing! I’m thinking about making it a Wednesday tradition! : )


P.S. Having lunch there totally got added to my bucket list!

#5 // Catching Up

So I made a bucket list.

It’s not a “Things I want to do before I die” kind of bucket list. It’s just a list of things I want to do that will make me happy. Things that make me appreciate and fully live and enjoy my life.

I’m not going to post the whole bucket list, but instead, I will simply give you updates as I mark things off!

The list is written on a poster board that’s taped to my bathroom door. There’s plenty of space to add more and more 🙂 

#5 Eat at a food truck. 

Accomplished on March 11, 2014.

I’ve been wanting to do this since I’ve lived in Austin, but I just simply never got around to it. Until yesterday.

 Blake came into town to chill with me for a bit, so for lunch we went to a food truck called Cow Bells! It was so good and I had been wanting to specifically go to that one! 


 I got a veggie burger with all the fixin’s and sweet potato fries! 😀

Not to mention, we got to sit at a PICNIC TABLE OUTSIDE! YAY! I was so pleased and so happy!

Right after that we went to HEB where I got a peach for dessert {peach season is coming y’all} and the kite as seen in yesterday’s post!

 I am definitely looking forward to adding and marking things off my list! Because if there’s anything I’ve learned this past week it’s that nothing is more powerful than forgiveness and that life is meant to be lived.


Now, let’s transition to today! Blake and  I went to the outlet mall in San Marcos! I had one store in mind. The Nike Outlet. T’was marvelous.

I bought THREE pairs of shorts for a grand total of ~$75.

That seems like SO much, but I really practically never ever buy clothes.

Besides, I’m training for a marathon and a half Ironman, so having clothes to train in is important! 😉

I’ll model the shorts for you some other time!

A little while later, Blake headed home to Magnolia and I hit up the g-y-m in my apartment complex. I never really use it because I think it’s fairly lame, but it was nice to pump some iron!

I did mostly abs and arms because my legs are soooorrreeeee.

Yesterday night, Erica and I sprinted/raced each other around Town Lake. We agreed that I definitely have more endurance than her, but her long legs and stride dominate me in sprints. I only beat her once! AND she gave me a head start! Whatevs. Watch out, Erica. I’m going to come back with venegeance! 😉

Anyway, it’s been so beautiful outside today, but it’s too chilly to sit outside in a tank top and shorts!

Instead, I’ve been enjoying the coolness with the window and blinds open! I’m in the mood to bake, but definitely NOT in the mood for sweets… Anyone want some baked goods shipped to them? 😉 (but for real!)



Making an effort..

I’ve been making an effort to make every single day an amazing day! :] It’s definitely gone well so far and the weather is also helping! ❤ 



{Took myself out for some coffee & a walk on the trails in the beautiful weather}
