Mexican Fiesta!

outfit details: top: Walmart (Miley Cyrus brand! haha!), shorts, belt: thrifted
Since Ryan and I have had all week to hang out together we didn't really do a focused date night, although we did have a great day together, topped of with a sweet mexican fiesta for two! 
closeups: I was really extravegant and got a manicure! here are my fav earrings, too!
we started off the day with a bike ride (that ended at the local ice cream shop!)  I didn't get any photos of the bike ride, but really it wasn't pretty, these shorts are so tight that they were NOT bike seat friendly (tmi? sorry)
anywho, like I said, the main event was the fiesta! 
 I made a spicy salad and we grilled some tilapia filets based on this recipe...  


  • 6 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Place the fish in a large nonmetal dish. Whisk together the 6 tablespoons oil, the orange zest, orange juice, ginger, hot sauce, salt, and pepper, to taste; pour over the fish. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare grill. Brush the fish with additional oil. Grill until fish just flakes when tested with a fork, about 5 minutes per side for each inch of thickness.
