Baked Pecan Rosemary Tilapia Recipe


I've been on a huge fish kick lately. Which is kind of funny because I used to really dislike fish. I used to dislike a lot of things, actually. Thank goodness for an adventurous husband who opens my mind to new possibilities in life (not only with food). Anyway, I've been hoarding a ton of fish recipes on Pinterest, and this baked pecan rosemary tilapia is one of my favorites so far.

So enjoy! Let me know if you tried it and how you liked it! Do you have any favorite fish recipes I should try?

Edgy Meets Country








Overalls: Thrifted | Shirt: Target (S I M I L A R) | Bag: Thrifted | Boots: B E L L A  M E) | Necklace: c/o F I F T H & M A E


Now that I've lived in Logan for almost two years, I figured it was time I owned a pair of overalls. I just so happened to come upon these vintage Blue Zone babies while rummaging through my parents' Halloween boxes. Yep. You could say I've got a problem. I'm also 100% sure they were used for my dad's old scarecrow costume, so yes, they're men's overalls. Not mad about it. I realize that overalls might not be the most flattering item for us large-chested girls, but I've always been about challenging fashion 'rules.' I have a bold, unique style, and I'm not going to let my curves stop me from expressing that. 

I've always loved thrift shopping, but I've noticed lately that I've been taking it to a new level. While cleaning my closet out to make room for fall items, I realized that over half of my wardrobe is thrifted. I was actually really excited about it! I love remembering the stories that go with every unique thrifted item, and I love that I'm not worried about seeing every other girl with the same piece. Not that I don't also love some of the trends. I'm just a thrift-finder, deal-hunter at heart. 

PS. There is, indeed, a baby Box Elder bug on my chest in basically all of these photos. Hello, friend! 

PSS. This is the first time I've been able to braid my hair back since I cut it! High five!

Love you guys.

Fresh, Unique Florals with The Bouqs






*This blog was compensated for this review. All views and opinions are my own!* 


Happy weekend, lovelies! I'm excited to share with you my experience with a great company. I received my Bouqs floral arrangement last Monday, and they are still going strong! The pictures above were taken today. That's a week and a half, people. They're still fresh and vibrant as ever! 

Let's talk a little about this company. T H E  B O U Q S are located in South America where their flowers are picked from the side of an active volcano. What? How awesome is that? Because they're so close to the equator and 10,000 feet above sea level, their flowers get  S U N. I'm talking a lot. That means more vibrant, bright color in your flowers. Who doesn't want that in a bouquet? 

I was also blown away by the beautiful packaging that every Bouq comes in. If you know me, you know I appreciate a good packaging presence. ;) Every morning waking up to this gorgeous bouquet just made me feel invigorated and ready to take on my (crazy mama) responsibilities. Even with a sink full of dishes and carpet needing to be vacuumed, at least my table looked chic as ever with these babies on it. 

If you're thinking about sending a loved one flowers to celebrate, apologize (you know it works!), or just because, you have to check out T H E  B O U Q S. I promise you won't be disappointed.
