Today I'm sharing one of my go-to summer recipes, grilled flatbreads! We spend a lot of evenings outside during the summer (thank goodness for our screened porch!) and while we use the grill year round, there's something about summer nights that make you want to dine al fresco. I like to keep things simple when grilling and let the fresh ingredients do all the talking. The great thing about this recipe is you can follow the basics but switch things up depending on what's in season.
If you saw my announcement on Sunday, you know we're having a BABY! This has been such an exciting week sharing the news with all of you and receiving so many sweet messages back. This was definitely the toughest secret to keep and the reason I went a little MIA on Insta Stories for the last month or so. I knew if I slipped up and shared about how tired I was or that I didn't feel well it would be a red flag and we wanted to wait until our most recent appointment to share the BIG news!
I can't think of a better way to kick off summer than with a colorful poolside party! As the temperatures heat up in Houston, most of our summertime activities revolve around the water. Even if it’s an impromptu happy hour after work, I always try to make even the most simple gathering memorable. Today I'm teaming up with INC x Popsicle to share five things you need to make your poolside party a success!
I'm super excited to bring you my second summer inspired post for the week, just in time for Memorial Day weekend! One of my favorite lunch spots in Houston, Local Foods has a crunchy chicken sandwich and it's one of my favorite things on the menu. The chicken is crusted with potato chips and the pretzel bun is freshly baked, it's seriously SO good! I wanted to recreate a similar version at home and I couldn't think of a better time to try it than Memorial Day!
Memorial Day is this weekend which mean the official kick off to summer and I couldn't be more excited! Even though I don't appreciate the 90 plus degree days in my near future, I love the bright colors, ice cold cocktails and vibrant flavors associated with summer. Today I'm sharing a festive prickly pear margarita recipe inspired by a cocktail I made for an event at Elaine Turner last month.
Last month myself and two girlfriends made the trek to Marfa (a nine-ish hour drive from Houston!) for a mid-week creative getaway. Michelle, Alyssa and I all work from home and as much fun as it sounds to those without flexibility, it can definitely be lonely and uninspiring at times. After a girls night and a bottle of wine, we rearranged our schedules and planned a road trip out west.
Typically the only fruit I share around here is found in the form of a cocktail or dessert, but with swimsuit season right around the corner, I’m switching things up! Today I’m talking about three ways I infuse fruit into my daily routine to keep me healthy, energized and ready for my beach vacation this summer as part of Tropicana’s #BelieveinYourGut campaign.
It's hard to believe Easter is less than a week away! This is always one of my favorites holidays filled with so much tradition, family and hope. Every year for as long as I can remember, we've gone to church as a family and then had an elaborate brunch. While I've never hosted my own Easter brunch, I have a feeling when I do it will look something like this! There's nothing I love more than a tablescape filled with bright colors, unexpected details and lots of sweets!
It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2017 and now spring is already here! This is my favorite season - I love eating al fresco, the bright flowers blooming and the extra hour of sunlight! Spring is also the perfect time to gather friends and host a casual but color brunch or dinner party.
For most schools in Texas, spring break kicks off today! Even though I don't get the week off, this time of year always symbolizes the start of so many fun waterside activities. This is such a fun and super easy project perfect for all those days spent by the pool, at the beach or lake.
