Another matching moment

I can’t take credit for this photo shoot! It was a Mommy & Me event hosted by Kindhearted Kids (a woman owned company teaching kids to be kind and encouraging the message through their events). They setup the cutest backdrop and had an on-site photographer, Layland Photography. If you’re local to Columbus, I highly recommend checking out both/either businesses. Layland Photography is owned by Ashlie who is so great to work with – I was certain Olivia wouldn’t smile in pics, but these turned out so adorable! Ashlie also offers tips for taking photos and offers mood boards for outfit Inspo when you book with her!

This matching set might be my favorite mommy & me outfit to date. I love the style of this top – sweetheart neckline and peplum bodice – so flattering! I am wearing an XS & ordered a 2T for Olivia. I thought it was supposed to be a dress but it was pretty short on her so it turned into a shirt. She’s an average height for her age (2) so not sure if this just runs a little large for toddlers. Maybe size up – worst case, it’s a little large now and they grow into it! The color of this outfit is so soft and neutral. Will work across spring & summer. Looking forward to wearing this again for St Patrick’s Day next year!! Lastly, I paired it with these beautiful lavender lace up heels from Vince Camuto. I love the color of these and have been able to pair these with multiple outfits (also worn in my last post, Mom Love Rose in the Park). The suede material is so comfortable and can be worn for several hours with no issues. Ordered my true size.

Tropical Fish Taco + Mexican Street Corn

A couple weekends ago, the weather was rainy and cold. We didn’t have any plans and didn’t really feel like leaving the house with such crappy weather. Instead, we brought something tropical to us! I had a craving for tacos and my husband had the brilliant idea to make fish tacos with the leftover fresh pineapple we had!

I placed an Amazon fresh order and groceries were delivered to our house a few hours later. I honestly didn’t go by a recipe but wishing I had! There are some delicious avocado cream recipes circulating Pinterest, yummm! But, I also knew that I wasn’t selecting our produce and that I’d get a rock hard avocado, not ready to be prepared, hah! I did the next best thing and ordered guacamole 🙂

For our side dish, I didn’t stress about counting calories. It was a Saturday night after all… I added ingredients to make Mexican street corn. Smoky flavor to compliment the sweet pineapple. Mexican street corn is so good! Probably because it’s mostly Mayo and don’t skimp on it!

I need to practice my flat lays but I find it tough to photograph food. Plus I’m in a hurry to cook so I can EAT! I used cod instead of tilapia. Fresh was out of their homemade pineapple salsa but Newman’s is very tasty! More sweet than spicy – good balance. I also ordered coleslaw mix because it’s essentially the same as thinly slicing cabbage and carrots. I really don’t see the difference, lol. For the street corn, I used feta because we already had some in the fridge.

I searched Pinterest and found this recipe which closely resembles how I made our tacos, in case you want inspo! https://thefoodiephysician.com/tropical-fish-tacos-pineapple-salsa/

If you try this recipe let me know! We’re heading to Martha’s Vineyard in a little over a week – can’t wait to take you along! xoxo
