Sweet 16 {Pool Party + Bubble Tea Bar}

My oldest just celebrated her Sweet 16 Birthday and we officially have a driver! It's honestly so crazy for me to think that she is old enjoy to be driving herself to around, but she was so excited about this big milestone birthday. 

We hosted a pool party with her friends to celebrate and her one request was pink and preppy!  I scored big time when I found these hot pink smiley face plates, napkins and party accessories and knew they would be perfect. 

We decided on a bubble tea bar and it was SUCH a hit!  The girls all came back for seconds. 

I got THIS assorted Popping Boba with 6 flavors and then I just mixed green tea with raspberry lemonade in the large drink dispenser. 

Clear cups and XL straws were a must! I'll definitely be doing a bubble tea bar again for other parties because it was so easy and the kids all loved it! 

I've shared this before, but the balloon garland kits that you can purchase on Amazon are so affordable (most are under $15) and they make such a big statement!  Using THIS pump you can blow them up and put one together in about an hour.  

I got the custom name size from Panhandle Mercantile and the backdrop is just plastic tablecloths that I cut into small strips. Really easy for a colorful backdrop. 

 It was a great day and I had so much fun planning the party!

Kitchen Confessions: Easy Fish Tacos

It's been a minute since we've been on here.  Lots of life happening and just not a lot of time for blogging, but we're slowly settling into a summer routine and that means just a little more free time on the horizon. Time to enjoy family, time to enjoy the sunshine, and time to actually cook a good dinner! 

There is something about summer that makes me feel like we should be eating more seafood. We've had some Mahi Mahi in the freezer for a while from a fishing trip the Mr. took this spring and I found THIS recipe online for fish tacos. 

They were SO good. My family was so impressed and they tasted like something you'd have at a restaurant. So yummy! The fish was seasoned just right and I think the other key was having all the best toppings including the tacos sauce that the recipe shared.

Fish Taco Ingredients: 

small flour tortillas 

1 1/2 lbs. white fish of your choice 

1/2 tsp ground cumin 

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 

1 tsp salt 

1/4 tsp black pepper 

1 Tbsp olive oil 

1 Tbsp butter 

Fish Taco Toppings: 

1/4 purple cabbage 

2 avocado, sliced 

tomato, diced 

1/2 diced read onion 

1/2 cup Catija cheese, crumbled

1 lime cut into wedges

Fish Taco Sauce Ingredients: 

1/2 cup sour cream 

1/3 cup mayo 

2 Tbsp lime juice 

1 tsp garlic powder 

1 tsp Sriracha sauce 


1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In small dish combine seasonings and sprinkle evenly over both sides of fish. 

2. Lightly drizzle fish with olive oil and dot each piece with butter. Bake at 375 for 20-25 mins. 

3. Combine all taco sauce ingredients in medium bowl and still until well blended. 

4. To serve tacos, quickly toast the corn tortillas in large dry skillet over medium/high heat. 

5. Assemble starting with pieces of fish then add toppings and taco sauce. Serve with fresh lime wedge to squeeze over tacos. 

6. Enjoy!
