for every grapefruit there is a burger.

Have you noticed the more you try to avoid bad decisions the more opportunities are available? In the peak of fitness motivation I find myself surrounded with a plethora of happy hour and lunch invitations. When you’re seeking new friendships and a heightened local network, it’s unacceptable to turn down either of these invitations.

So, I turn to ClassPass for two-a-days, my trainer* for guidance and MyFitnessPal for accountability. Additionally, I surround myself on social media with those who are seeking healthy lifestyles. Looking at you, AlisonSarah and Kelly.


But, life can't be perfect. Mine, anyway. It can, however, be intentional.

As I learn to wake up a bit earlier to make breakfast, a meal I've skipped most of my life, and pour over the Word, I've chosen to leave room for impromptu adventures.  

Adventures with friends .... and burgers. 


Because sometimes you're invited to an infamous burger bar and you just don't want to say no. 

*Yes, I meet with a personal trainer once or twice a week  depending on my schedule — to pick up a few new tricks to help whip my body back into shape. Give George an Insta follow for random grams and tidbits of motivation.

hopdoddy is known for excellent customer service, exceptional burgers and delightful craft beer. It's no wonder the line is consistently out the front door. I give it five stars.

house wine + s'mores

Once upon a time I made a happy hour date with an Oklahoma girl named Emily. She’s a small town Oklahoma girl who happened to move to Austin the same weekend as the Haney team. On this particular Friday (ahem, last Friday), I was somehow granted an easy commute. Basically, an Austin miracle.

We met at House Wine, which happens to be one of my favorite places to hang out in all of Austin. It’s a house that serves wine. Get it?


And, they serve s'mores. S'MORES.

Unrelated and not particularly important: I wore a floral dress I scored on the cheap from Nordstrom Rack. 

While we talked about housing markets, Kendra Scott knock-offs, Emily's recent wedding, traffic patterns and vacations we destroyed a plate of urban campfire s'mores.

I've never been so messy in public in all my life or had a more delightful happy hour.
