Petite Stitchery & Co - Taffy Dress

Image
Guess what?! The Taffy Dress is officially released! And it's currently on sale until Monday, June 25th!

I absolutely love the drop waist of this dress. It's super cute and something I haven't seen very much of. I'm also pretty sure the plain dress version is one of my new favorites. The fit is seriously perfect. It has a nice relaxed fit that makes it not seem super dressy. You, of course, can dress it up, but I think it is the perfect casual dress! I recently got some cherry DPB fabric that I was pretty sure I had my mind set on the Boho Babydoll... but I'm pretty sure it needs to be a Taffy! 😍 However, I have way to many projects going on, too many tests, and my sewing room is a disaster (Again!). So hopefully I'll be able to cut into my pretty cherries soon!


Good news, I didn't have to do too many modifications do this dress, which makes everything way nicer! I did, however, lengthen where the drop waist hits (by 2 inches), mainly for modesty coverage

Me-Made-May 2018 Recap

Image
My goodness, it's already been almost a month since May ended and I'm finally getting around to this. How is June already almost over?! Anyway, my Me-Made-May was a bit of a challenge. I had a handful of repeats, so hopefully next year will be much better on the me-made front. This year, my main problem is that I work from home. Which means that I rarely get dressed in the morning. And on top of that, I mainly leave the house to go to the gym (and I have hardly ANY  me made workout clothes...) or to the grocery store. Most of my me-mades are dresses or cute tops that I would wear if I need to look decent out in public, not necessarily lounging around the house... So essentially, my me-made-May consisted of a whole lot of me made comfy pants! Next year, I think I might shoot for a mama-made-May (as well as a me-made)! Then, Max can join me in wearing some mama-made makes! 
Anyway, here is my recap! (Sorry, no hyperlinks 'cause I'm being a bum.)

Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash

Image
I seriously love spaghetti squash! Though, the first time I made it, I wasn't a real big fan. Spaghetti squash has to be cooked just right or else the "noodles" will be too crunchy (unless you like it that way). This is also why I like twice baked because it ensures that everything is cooked just right!

Ingredients! 
1 or 2 Spaghetti Squash (I typically just do one at a time)
1 lb turkey sausage (this typically has a higher protein content and less fat than pork sausage)
1 medium yellow onion - cut in to small pieces. (I like to cut them in small squares)
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 jar of Prego Spaghetti Sauce - Garlic & Herbs
1/2 cup mozorella cheese (possibly more or less, I don't measure this one)
1 zucchini or other veggies of your choosing (optional)
Approx. 1 Tbsp of olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions!


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off the end/tip of the squash and cut the squash in half length wise (using a super sharp knife helps) and scoop ou…
