I might just die happy if 4 mini XXS pink running shoes showed up at my doorstep for Locket.

Adventures with a Dragon Fruit

After 2 years of searching, I finally found my very own Dragon Fruit!!!

Getting my little hands on this beautiful-pink-exotic fruit has been on my “Food Bucket List” for quite some time now. When I saw a basket full of pink Dragon Fruits at the grocery store, I could hardly believe my eyes. The moment I spotted the dragon fruit, I began to run towards it at full speed (which wasn’t very fast considering I was wearing heels as usual) as I pinched myself along the way to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! My blonde hair flowing in the wind, dodging housewives, kids and grandmas right and left (insert dramatic music here.) In my imagination, I pictured myself fighting off hundreds of housewives to get my hands on one of these… but the other people in the store seemed to care less that there was a Dragon Fruit in their presence. Obviously they didn’t know what they were missing.

Finally, when I got my hands on one of these precious gems, it was if the heavens opened up the grocery store ceiling, and the angels started singing! I grabbed my phone, and asked the nearest housewife to snap a picture of me kissing it, yes right in the middle of the store. I have no shame… and proud of it!

My first instinct was to FILL MY WHOLE SHOPPING CART with Dragon fruits, but after laying eyes on the $5.99 price tag, that instinct flew right out of the hole in the ceiling that the singing angels made.

After texting all my best friends a picture of my juicy pink victory, I went right home and cut it open with my boyfriend.

This is what they look like inside-

Unfortunately, after 2 years of searching… I didn’t like the taste. It tasted like the green part of a watermelon that’s left over after you’ve eaten all the sweet pink parts. Perhaps it hadn’t been ripened yet, but I wasn’t about to spend another $5.99 to find out. Next time, I’m going to try and make a smoothie out of a Dragon Fruit, maybe I’ll like that better.

That concludes my adventures with a Dragon Fruit, now time to find another exotic fruit to add to my Food Bucket List!

Here’s a little preview of what’s to come from all my Color Run pictures!!

My Boyfriend Bryan and I even made matching T-Shirts that said “Running towards our Happily Ever After!”

Believe it or not, these were my shoes AFTER I had dusted them off with a towel haha.

Get prepared to see my bright blonde hair go from blonde to hot PINK.

Pictures will be up later today 🙂

All natural honey-mint tea

image

One of my best friends gave me this deliciously simple tea recipe the last time I drove up to see her in San Bernadino.

I’m NOT a big fan of tea, however I had a tickle in my throat that weekend- so she gave me this tea. She made it with leave from her freshly grown mint plant. I surprisingly enjoyed this delicate combination and had to blog about my first positive tea experience.

Tea-sperience (I’m officially making this a word.)

Unfortunately, I failed miserably at growing my own mint plant at home (my thumbs are obviously not green… they’re hot pink.) Thank our beautiful Lord that Trader Joes is just a few minutes away, and carries pre-packaged mint leaves.

Ingredients:
4-6 Mint leaves
1 cup of water
1-2 tsp of honey
1 cute cup
A warm blanket and your favorite movie!

Recipe:
Heat water, combine ingredients, wait 2 minutes for flavors to dissolve, then drink and relax!

Honey tip:
This honey-mint tea tastes the absolute best with real honey. However, I am currently out of all natural/organic honey; which I purchased from the farmers market last month (yay support your local farmers.) Until  next week’s farmers market, this artificial bear stuff will have to suffice. I recommend going out of your way to your local farmers market and getting your own real honey as well.

Try it out!
Easy, healthy and will warm your heart/mind/soul.
