farmers market fresh

It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe so I thought I needed to share this yummy dish I made the other night… stuffed pattypan squash.

I started with my pick of produce from the weekend’s market.

Next, I cut open and “gutted” the pattypan squash.
helpful hint: cook the squash on stove for about 6 mins to get it soft. It’s much easier to “gut” that way. 
I knew I wanted to pack them full of yumminess so I took my other veggies and chopped them up to make the stuffing.

Once everything is filled chopped and you’ve added your favorite spices, stuff the squash.
extra step- I wanted a little bit more out of my stuffing so I {quickly} made some barley and then folded the veggie mix into the barley. 

Once the squash is stuffed, put them in a baking dish and bake for about 20 mins at 375. Once the squash is soft and the stuffing looks “cooked”, they are ready to eat!

Throw the little “hat” back on and enjoy! I served mine with a big mixed green salad and fresh fruit.

What’s your favorite summertime squash dish?


monday wisdom

Monday are always a little hard. You’re coming off your weekend high and still starring at 5 full work days ahead. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and in a routine of going through the motions. I’m totally guilty of it. We all are. So change it.

I’m currently re-reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. (If you haven’t read it, you should absolutely pick it up immediately.) Within just 5 pages, Gretchen makes a great comment that we should all remember on a daily basis: your life isn’t going to change unless you make it change. Whether it’s your job, your relationship, your friends, where you live, etc- you are the one that has to recognize your needs/wants and then be brave enough to make the change.

As I continue the journey of owning my own (still-very-new) business, this book serves as an awesome reminder for me that I am doing what I wanted. And, even though I have really hard days and long hours, I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be and that’s all that matters. (at least for today)


inspired entertaining :: the picnic

plates | blanket | basket | wine stakes | cheese board
A picnic in the park is one of my favorite things to do on a summer’s evening. It’s the perfect opportunity to do a casual potluck with friends or an easy and romantic date night. Whichever you decide to do, make sure to have the essentials…
:: the picnic checklist ::

a picnic basket. this is a must and there are so many cute and practical options out there to pick from, like the vintage anchor basket shown above.

a big comfy blanket to cuddle up with and keep the grass stains at bay

reusable, outdoor dinnerware. let’s try to avoid bringing throw-away-plastic options and be eco-friendly. in fact, you know that cute picnic basket I was just talking about? Well usually it comes packed full of 2-4 place settings. What a bargain.

a cheese board. wine and cheese is pretty much a given at any picnic so grab an easy and portable one that comes with cheese knives too!

lastly, wine holders. okay, this isn’t a must have but how awesome are these wine stake? It’s the best way to ensure your drink doesn’t spill and is in reaching distance.

Have a happy weekend!

what i’m up to…

I’m working on so many fun weddings this summer… not just the paper products but the styling and details too (which is by far my favorite part). Today, I’m a stamping queen. I can’t wait to share everything about this couple’s big day!!

a little recap

Well, the weekend has come and gone…again! {I hate how it always does that.} AND, this week is shaping up to be crazier than ever, so I apologize for the very quick post today…

:: weekend recap :: 
Besides working, cleaning and running countless errands, I squeezed in some much needed FUN on Sunday. It started with a run — followed by a carefree cruiser bike ride to the farmers market — a quick stop at the nursery to get a few more flowers — and finally, ended with a beautiful picnic at the park to hear some awesome jazz with some amazing friends!

I hope everyone has a happy start to the week!

let’s escape

It’s that time again… FRIDAY! Any fun plans? I will be working on a lot of {client related} projects this weekend but in my mind, I will be here.

Hopefully this picture gives me motivation for a little weekend getaway coming up in less than 10 days!

:: i think i can, i think i can ::

Happy weekend-ing!

Friday Happy Hour

Man, what a week! Several projects out the door {best feeling ever} and a few new things in the works, that I can’t wait to share with you. But until then, let’s talk about the weekend, shall we? 

With scorching hot days ahead, we all need to stay hydrated. Water, of course, is essential but so are fun, frozen drinks. Grab the blender. Mix it up. And maybe do a little dance. Cheers!
