Fair hangovers are real. Anyone else in need of an extra day for sleep and detox? Ha! As always, such a fun Fair weekend. We didn’t make it out there as much as years past and I’m still exhausted!
I know I keep saying it but, just two days left of Summer before the school begins. Savor it friends. Enjoy every second of it. Because once school starts….everything starts. Extra curricular. Sports. Labor Day. Then the Holidays!
Intentions for the Week:
Final Summer party with friends
Hit my bedtime (I’ve become a night owl)
Have the acrylics removed from Bay’s nails (payback is a bitch Kissey)
All the self care the night before school
1 st Day of School
Focus on fit bit + water goals
Attend the Crush Ceremony at Matchbook Winery
Work on a Fall table setting
Celebrate my girl becoming a teenager. The BIG 13!
This week on the blog……Target Tuesday tomorrow. Did you see all the Fall new arrivals from Hearth & Hand? After many requests, I’ll be sharing the White Bean Caprese Salad recipe that I made over the weekend. I actually stole the recipe from my Mom. How about an American Eagle Try-on?
Pre-Drunk! Ha! How many trips to the county fair is too many? Asking for a friend!!
Before I get keg beer tips – I wanted to share 5 things I’m loving this week! Including these $10 shades that I can’t stop rockin. And my top. It’s $23! I found a new candle that smells like Fall and it’s on sale. And for all the Mama’s out there – Free Printable 1st day of School signs for each grade! Cheers to kegs beer and 105 degrees friends!
Weekend plans: We’re hitting up the fair for Demolition Derby + tacos tonight. Again! Ha! Bay + I are volunteering Saturday morning – prepping the fair tacos, since we love them so much! Pool time. Hoping to make a trip to Patio 29 in Winters? Looks like a fun spot. Hitting a Birthday party. And a quick volunteer shit at the fair for out 4-H club. And enjoying our last weekend to the very fullest before school starts Wednesday! Stay cool peeps – It’s brutal out there!
On Tuesday’s you can typically find me at Target or Trader Joe’s my two favorite lunch break stops. I know today is Thursday, but it starts with a T too, so let’s just go with it, k?
It’s you’re a TJ’s addict, like myself, then you’ve noticed they released so many NEW products the last couple of weeks. I follow Trader Joe’s List on instagram. You probably should too. She’s a TJ’s junkie too!
We’ve got our weekly items we can’t live without. Along with all the new stuff we love to try out. So, I’ve listed out what we’ve tried. The Weight Watchers points per serving for each item. And if we loved it….or didn’t care for it so much.
Surprise, Surprise! A whole post dedicated to leopard print. I feel like leopard print has always been a major trend for years. But, it’s real, real BIG at the moment. You can find a little leopard something at basically any retailer. From shoes to PJ’s. Scrunchies – yep, scrunchies are another major thang. Especially for the tween + teens! That headband though. You know I’m feeling the headbands! Belts are perfect if you’re easing your way into the print. You know I love that leopard skirt and it’s on SUPER sale. Bundling up an outfit with a scarf or topping with that amazing pullover! To the gym or to the beach. I found something in just about every category!
HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!
Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie? I have a feeling The Art Of Racing In The Rain will make me cry my damn eyes out. And fingers crossed….make it to the new plant shop, Propagate Sac. What’s on your agenda for the Weekend?
And I decided that I’m going to keep it really real over here…..
I have a gnarly zit on my chin. And I’m not messing around when I say it’s the size of Africa! There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world to cover this thing. About to name the son of a bitch. Any suggestions? Maybe Bertha? Or Bernard? Something that starts with a B, preferably.
You guys, we’ve got 2 frickin weeks till school starts. Holy shit. Is everyone ready?
I am! I’m ready for our regularly scheduled life back. Bay’s got all her school supplies. Backpack is locked and loaded. First day outfit is picked out. We’ve got our 1st day sign ready for a photo shoot (which we do the day before)#momhack
The first day is entirely too wild. Emotions are at an all time high. It’s fucking stressful. So last year we decided – first day pics the day before. And it worked like a charm! Try it! I’ll be sharing some cute free printables in the next week or so.
I feel like dinnertime + cooking in general (that first week or two) is also crazy stressful. Especially when we have those big ass packets of Mom homework. I dread them every year.
So, I’ll be sharing some easy weeknight dinners.
Which are also great for meal prep.
Healthy + Weight Watchers approved!!
We’re salmon lovers at our house. I love just about any fish or seafood. My teenager, not so much. But, she’s down with some salmon here and there. So, salmon it is. Ha! I typically bake it in the oven with lemon. Sometimes I’ll add a honey + Dijon mixture. Honestly, I keep it pretty basic. The other night I got a wild hair and wanted to try something new. And it was a HIT! I felt like a won a fucking award as Bay cleaned every last bit of food off her plate! Ha!
Here are some other Salmon recipes from the blog…..
Why did the weekend fly by so fast? Spent Sunday Funday wine tasting in Clarksburg. We #chardsohard at Bogle Winery. Cory even joined the wine club so cheers to more trips in the future. We had a very chill weekend and even more chill week ahead. Trying to really embrace the final weeks of summer.
Intentions for the Week:
Soak up all my time with Bay before school starts
Make zero point meatballs
Kick my Mom’s ass at weigh-in this week
Take extra good care of myself
Decide on a 2020 planner
Actually take a hike on the weekend (not just talk about it…lol)
Breakup with sugar (added sugar) for 10-days (bye chardonnay)
Pink hair, don’t care?
Give out some random acts of kindness….the whole World needs it!
This week on xoxostacyb: Not making any promises lol, but I’m hoping to get up Target Tuesday. New Trader Joe’s items we’re loving. And finally my Old Navy Try-on. Maybe, just maybe Friday 5 too?
