{friday 5}

Happy Friday 5!  I’m ready to jump up and down like the carpool girls!  The sun is shining and I cant wait to burn off from work and get the weekend started!  Even stuck my patron in the fridge to chill.  That means Skinny Skinny Margs asap!  Cheers!

It has been such a good week over here at xoxostacyb.  So many new followers…it makes my heart happy!  Next week I’m going to over share ALL THE THINGS Easter.  So brace yourself….this Holiday Whore is going all out lol.  In a good way!  I think.

 

Here are some things I’m currently diggin…..

ONE – Currently snacking on //  Why is it when I give up sugar, I crave apples?  I never, ever crave fruit.  And not just any apple, it has to be a honeycrisp.  Super thinly sliced.  Just how Bay requests her apples to be slices.  Topped with my homemade almond butter.  Then a dash of cinnamon.  Holy apples.  It’s so dang good.  Try it!

Since it’s better than what I was snacking on earlier this month (girl scout cookies) I’ve been going with it here and there to curb my GS cookie craving…lol.

TWO – Currently obsessed with //  This eyelash separator.  I’d never even heard of such a thing till a couple of weeks ago.  I started following thebeyoutybureau and she pulled one out of her bag of tricks.  I was in awwww.  It worked so well.  So I went to Target and got myself one….Ha!  I use it before I put on my mascara.  Then right after I apply mascara.  It’s legit!  Too legit to quit!

THREE – Bay’s currently diggin // Homemade granola.   Peanut Butter Granola to be exact.  She tops her morning yogurt.  Ice cream.  Over milk.  I try to not grab a handful every time she opens the jar.  It’s so good.  And so super easy.  We ran out of the TJ’s almond granola the other day.  So, I gathered ingredients from the pantry and gave it a shot.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 cups old fashion oats
  • 2/3 cup almonds, chopped (any nut will work)
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

 

Here’s what you’ll do:

Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, stir together peanut butter + honey + coconut oil + vanilla + salt + cinnamon.  Heat until melted, but not bubbly.

Using a large bowl, combine oats + almonds + peanut butter mixture.  Stir until combined.

Spread granola out evenly on prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.

Stir and bake an additional 15 minutes or until granola is lightly toasted + golden.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Add chocolate chips and enjoy!

Store granola in an airtight container.  I used a large mason jar.

 

 

FOUR – Currently into  // J.Crew Factory.  Do you ever kinda forget about a store?  Then want to buy everything because it’s all so damn cute?  They’ve got some good stuff!  I hopped on to check it out the other day and went a little cray-cray.  I posted this picture on insta stories and instantly got messages asking what I got.
