{friday 5}

Let the lonnnggg weekend begin.  Today is my last day of work till April 9th.  I can’t even begin to tell you how frickin excited I am.  So excited that I couldn’t even sleep last night.  My brain was going a mile a minute of all the things I need to get done + can’t wait to do in the next 10 days.  Bay + I cleaned the house.  Washed the car.  Full tank of gas.  Grocery shopped.  Easter baskets are complete.  Eggs are filled and ready for the Easter bunny.  So, I plan to drink some LOTS of skinny, skinny margs tonight and begin celebrating.

Don’t even trip though, I kicked butt this week and pre-blogged so you will still get your daily xoxostacyb email 🙂  Just in case you were worried..HA!

Have a great weekend.  Enjoy Easter with your family.  And HAPPY SPRING BREAK!!!

 

Before I let you go, I’ve got 5 things on my mind…..

 

ONE – The perfect black swimsuits //  I found it ladies!  I found THE perfect black one-piece.  And it doesn’t cost $300!  I actually found two!  Both from the one, the only…..

TARGET!

And did you see Target is doing a BOGO 50% off on suits for the fam?

What that means is, you can get both for under $60!  Two perfect black swimsuits!

My suit // Bay’s suit 

Perfect black suit #1 // $39.99 (BOGO 50% off)

I actually bought this exact suit twice now.  A tragedy happened last year.  While I was at the Cache Creek Spa, I accidentally wrapped up the perfect black suit with my spa robe and threw it in the dirty hamper.  Called the next day and they tossed it!  Went back to Target to buy a new one….SOLD OUT!  Everywhere.  I even tried SF.  No go.  Moral of the story, get this suit.  It’s super faltering.  Lots of coverage.   Removable neck strap.  There are over 300 reviews…read them for yourself.

 

Mesh Inset One Piece Swimsuit

 

Perfect black suit #2 // $39.99 (BOGO 50% off)

This is the show stopper.  Obsessed with the low scoop back.  I saw this on so many bloggers on LiketoKnowit.  Clicked on the link.  And fell out of my seat when I saw it was Target.  It comes in white too.  I kinda want to order it.  I did size up to a large in this one.  Which worked out perfectly.  I have a long torso and I didn’t want it cutting into my shoulders.  It has great coverage.  Removable cups.  I could go on and on.  Get it before it’s sold out!

 

Ruffled One Piece Swimsuit (comes in white)

 

Bay’s perfect black suit // $39.50

Since we like matching, it only made sense that we both get the perfect black suits.  J.Crew suits fit Bay perfectly.  And we can twin on the beach all summer long 🙂

TWO – Bunny Toppers //  How adorable are these jumping bunnies?  Thinking of using them as food picks to decorate the Easter table.  What do you think?  Print.  Cut out…and I didn’t even cut on the lines.  Grab some pom-poms from the Dollar Tree.  Dab a bit of glue on the bunny but.  Piece of tape to hold the toothpick and you’re done.  Would be super cute on cupcakes too.  Unless you’re doing marshmallow bunny ears from Bay Bakes 🙂

THREE – Easter Tic Tac Toe //  This free printable caught my eye last week.  I already picked up a bag of Bunny Mallows on one of my many Target runs.  I had no idea what I’d use them for at the time.  Then it hit me….Easter kid table place settings.  Perfect, right?  Keep them busy at the kid table so the adults can hold a convo + sip on some bubbles.

FOUR –  Easter Table //  You guys were absolutely NO help on Instagram polls earlier this week.  It was split 50/50.  I decided to return the floral napkins + moss easter eggs. I loved them both, don’t get me wrong.  But, really, I didn’t need to spend more money on napkins.  It just felt better to use what I had on hand and set a pretty table.

What do you think?  Do you dig it?

I couldn’t resist the bunny ear napkin rings.

Added fresh micro greens from Trader Joe’s as my Easter grass.  Obsessed with using real herbs + greens to decorate with.  A box of micro greens cost $2.  Won’t last more than a few days, but I think it’s totally worth the money!

Finally broke down and got the water glasses I’ve had my eye on.  When World Market sends you a $10 rewards + $10 off a $30 purchase, you buy the damn glasses.

New items I did pick up:

Bunny Ears Napkin Rings 4pk $9.99 // Decorative Artificial Egg Filler 20pc $9.99 // Officina 1825 Double Old Fashioned Glasses $2.99
