Friday Link Love & Weekend Sales

Friday, June 22, 2018

Welcome to Friday!  We've been contained to a small portion of our house this week while the floors were being refinished. Can I tell you how excited I am to move everything back and finally get settled?  The floors look so good though which makes it all so worth it!  In case you missed it, you can find June style here and a delicious fish taco recipe here.  Wishing you the very best weekend!

Is every home on Harbour Island beautiful?  I'm beginning to think, yes.

Cali-cool for sure

Cheers to blue!

Delicious Fish Tacos | A Light & Easy Summer Supper

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Our son and a couple of his friends recently went deep sea fishing.  They each caught a huge mahi-mahi.  My only assignment was to find a "good recipe" for the fish.  Since we all love fish tacos it only made sense to look for a recipe.  The fish was so big that we've been able to enjoy tacos several times, which is a-okay with us.  The recipe is all about the rub and the crema.  I could've made pico de gallo myself, but let's all be honest.  Sometimes it's easy (and just as good) to buy it from the grocery store.  We like to add guacamole & chips as a side.


1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1 pound mahi-mahi fillet
corn tortillas warmed ***we double them because sometimes they break 
1 cup finely shredded cabbage
1 lime, cut into wedges to serve with tacos

Combine all spices in a small bowl.  Sprinkle over fish. 
 Grill fish until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. 
 Using a fork, coarsely shred fish. 


1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sour cream
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
hot pepper sauce

Whisk cream and sour cream in a small bowl to blend. 
 Season to taste with salt, pepper, and hot sauce.

Fill tortillas with fish, cabbage, and pico de gallo. 
 Drizzle with cream.  Squeeze fresh lime wedges over tacos.

June Style

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Hi everybody!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I spent last weekend at the beach with girlfriends from my childhood and had the best time!  Late night giggles and reminiscing into the wee hours is so, so good for the soul!  When I got home Sunday, the guys had cleared out our living and dining rooms and the floors are in the process of being refinished.  So far they look amazing!

In other news, it is so hot outside that I melt every time I go out.  I'm looking for easy breezy things to wear that aren't too revealing.  What happened to spring?  I've rounded up some cute things for June style that I'm currently loving.  Cropped jeans are so cute this season and I just love these.  I think they would look great with this sweater or this top and these sandalsThis swimsuit is one that I own.  It's really cute on (and I rarely say that about swimsuits, lol).  I've actually ordered a few from here and really like them - great prices too!  This nail color is one of my favorites for summer.  Straw bags and lightweight denim shorts are summer staples.  Happy shopping!
