JCW brought back fish that was caught at a bachelor party in Florida and we decided to make Fish Tacos. Fresh fish was welcomed as opposed to coming back with another lost wedding band. Fish Tacos are a meal that we have no problem agreeing on. He grilled the Snapper and I prepped the fixings...
I've been all about statement earrings for weddings and dinners recently and can't get enough of tassels. For an evening out, these Oscar de la Renta earrings are all I would need to pair with a summer dress.
In honor of Father's Day, I am hosting a giveaway from Smathers & Branson for one of their new needlepoint polo shirts. Did you know that Smathers & Branson is a Maryland based company? Just another reason to love them! Here are a few of my favorite polos...
We tried this Southsiderecipeover the weekend using the NutriBullet. The only thing we might do differently next time is use cheesecloth as an extra fine strainer. At the time we didn't mind having a bunch of mint in our teeth because it was just the two of us. We usually cut the mix with sparking water so it's not as strong and has a nice fizz.
Andy Ervin's Southside:
Makes enough for four 12-ounce cocktails
1 "heavin' handful" of mint cuttings (about 2 cups)
3 ounces fresh-squeezed lemon juice
4 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice
8 tablespoons granulated sugar
8 ice cubes
-Place every ingredient, except the rum, in a blender or food processor and run on high until mint is chopped, about 30 to 60 seconds.
-Strain, pouring mixture into a pitcher.
-For each drink, fill a 12-ounce glass with ice. Add 4 ounces of mint mixture and 3 ounces of rum. Stir well. Top with a shot of dark rum.
I simply adore the American flag and I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I love wearing anything with ruffles. I have a special place in my heart for animals and the water. I cherish photography and sculpture. I believe in fate. Summer is my favorite time of year. I like smelling cinnamon buns. I can’t live without back-rubs, online shopping, heating blankets, pink nail polish, plaid and hydrangeas. I get excited before a storm. There should be more random acts of kindness. I love antiques and decorating. I mostly wear flats. Anything seersucker is adorable. I will never get sick of eating tomato mozzarella. The best thing about the beach is outdoor showers and eating candy. All pools should be heated. -EAS
