Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at Tropicana!

If you’ve caught my Instagram story anytime over the last 4 months, chances are you’ve seen some before and after images of our “fixer upper” pop up on my story.

On August 8, we closed on the house, then immediately began demo. Since then, we’ve had no walls in most of the house, but today that changed, today, drywall began and we’ve got walls people!

Now it might seem weird to some people to celebrate walls, but when you haven’t had walls for 4 months and you see walls start going up, you definitely celebrate!

Last night I invited a few friends over to celebrate this milestone in our “fixer upper” life and I whipped up this delicious champagne punch to cheers my friends with!

Frozen Coconut Mojito

Frozen Coconut Mojito Recipe

Ok, so let’s take a minute to talk about this coconut kick I’m on right now! Does anyone else go on kicks where they’re really loving one ingredient or cuisine or cooking method for like a month straight, or is that just a food blogger thing, or is it just me?!

Sometimes I’ll look at my upcoming recipe content calendar for the blog and all of the sudden realize that every recipe is in a bowl, or grilled, or has coconut in it, like this month, I guess we’ll just call this “The month of the coconut” on WhitneyBond.com! 😉

Pomegranate Mint Infused Water

Pomegranate Mint Infused Water

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Soma, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #givesoma  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.”

For every dinner party I host I spend a good 5-10 minutes, pouring water from my clunky plastic water filter into nice bottles to place on the table. My thought, why not just create a water filter that’s lovely enough to go straight from the refrigerator to the table?

Well the founder of Soma, Mike Del Ponte, and I had the exact same thought. He just did something about it!

Watermelon Tomato Salad

What says summer more than fresh watermelon?  We’ve hit the peak of summer and this little salad is the perfect side for a BBQ or a fresh and healthy lunch!


  • 3 cups cubed (or balled) watermelon
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes (sliced in half)
  • 5 oz feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint (chopped)
  • 1/2 red onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Start by slicing open a watermelon and cutting out cubes or use a watermelon baller (if you ball like that, haha) as my Dad so perfectly displays! He’s such a baller 😉

Place into a large bowl, then begin slicing the grape tomatoes in half and add to the watermelon.

Next, add the feta cheese, mint and onion.  Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Before serving drizzle with the olive oil and vinegar and toss well.

This dish was a huge hit at my family BBQ last month, along with its friends the pulled pork, skillet potatoes, jicama slaw and smoked brisket!

… yeah, that’s a lot of food!  I ♥ BBQ’s!
