Protein + veggie.


Complex carbs + a dab of fat.




Simple, delicious, and healthy.

What is on your dinner menu tonight?

p.s. A Hershey kiss has been staring at me all day so I’m about to unwrap that sucker and call it a day. There’s always something good in a second dessert.

Summer Bucket List.

How’s everybody doinnnnn?!?! My summer has been rather chill.. though I have done/seen some exciting things!

I have seen “bucket lists” around Pinterest and on a few blogs, so I thought I would come up  with one of my own in my never-ending free time. Hey, no complaints.

1.) Go Kayaking.

Seth and I went kayaking on Tuesday. We actually got caught in a storm (we originally thought we could beat it by a few hours) and had to pull out of the water for about 45 minutes. It was definitely an adventure and I can’t wait to go back. We agreed to go when there is a 0% chance. 

2.) Paint at least one piece of furniture.

I have been pinning all kinds of awesome painted furniture on Pinterest and I hope to get my hands on a fun piece and add a pop-o-color to it!

3.) Eat at Heirloom Market BBQ one  last time.

I went last week! It was awesome. Better than before, probably because I had a hardcore Crossfit workout that morning and I had missed it so dang much! I ate every last bite. #beast

4.) Do at least one unassisted pull-up at Crossfit DGA (before July 31.)

When I transfer schools in the Fall, I am also transferring Crossfit boxes. If everything works out as planned, I will have one last week at Crossfit DGA here at home during the last week of July. Hopefully, I will have that pull-up perfected!

5.) Run a 5k.

Whether it’s signing up for a road race or running it on my own, I hope to knock out 3 miles! It’s amazing how much Crossfit has increased my cardio endurance and I am able to knock out a little over a mile and a half with no problem. Did I mention, cardio is my weakness?! Even when I am in tip-top shape, I struggle with cardio.

6.) Make S’mores! 

These are Martha Stewart’s S’mores cookies. Mmmmm

7.) Make this Peach Lemon Pound Cake. 

Possibly for my peach-lovin’ daddio… Father’s Day is ten days away!

8.) Make these easy painted bottles for my new room! 

9.) Frame a dollar store full-length mirror like this one. 

10.) Pack a picnic! 

Like a real picnic. In a cute basket and eaten under the sun on top of a blanket. Maybe I can even bring the s’mores cookies!

…. and just for fun- check out my friend’s, Maddie, little ham. Born on Friday, June 1!

peace and summer-y love. xoxoxox. Mindy
