{friday 5}


Happy, Happy Friday!  Today, for the first time all damn week, I’m feelin it.  FINALLY!  I’ve been in such a funk, for no particular reason at all.  Originally, I was calling it a vacation hangover, but not sure that’s still a legitimate excuse come Thursday.  I could not go one more day as grumpy ass Stacy.  So, I got up, made a cup of coffee and went to the mirror.  Looked myself dead on and said “Bitch, today is a new day.  It’s gonna be a damn good day.  Smile.  Drink that coffee and kick some ass!”  And go buy yourself something cute.  Haha!  It did the trick!  Maybe it being Friday was the kicket?  Who knows, but I’m gonna keep up with the pep talks!


Wanna know what’s on my mind today?  I’m about to tell you anyway 🙂


ONE  – My 4-H Girl // 2017 vs. 2018.  HOLY COW!!  Every April, Bay goes to the 4-H club meeting in her whites.  They do a little presentation to show the newer members what they need for Spring Show.  I took the picture on the right Monday.  Then the picture on the left showed up in my memories the next day.  One year.  365 frickin days.  And the change is so crazy.  I bet she’s at least 6 inches taller.  Not to mention she looks like a total tween…OMG!  Last weekend she spent her own money on a mini backpack, which I’m not a fan of, but she’s obsessed with.  So clearly, she’s going to rock it we go for the rest of time.  Where did my baby go?



TWO – Avocado Crackers //  You know I’m a BIG fan of avocado toast.  Like, real big fan.  I’ve been carb loading lately.  A week of vacay + Easter at the same time….KILLED ME.  So, I’m trying to kick it on the carbs a bit.  These TJ’s Crispbreads have 7g carbs.  That’s like less that 1/3 of what a slice of sourdough bread has.  I still get that yummy avocado toast taste that I love.  And have you ever tried a hard-boiled egg on avocado toast?  BOMB!  This makes a great breakfast or lunch option.



Here’s what you’ll need:

  • two hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 TJ’s grain cripsbread (or gg crackers)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • TJ’s everything but the bagel seasoning



Mash avocado in a small bowl.  Divide and spread over crackers.

Top each cracker with 1 sliced egg

Sprinkle with seasoning.

Inhale in 5 seconds.  Because they are that good!



THREE – J.Crew //  J.Crew is killing it on their promo’s + sales lately.  Like this adorable one-shoulder bow top.  The elastic around the top for a stay-in-place feel is so good.  No tugging at all.  I grabbed it for $11.99!  What a steal, right?  Funny thing, two of my best gal pals also ordered the same top.  #twinning.  I kinda want to pair it with black jeans…hmmm.

Wanna see what else I ordered last week?


One-Shoulder Top //  Bikini Top // Bandana // Utility Pocket Top // Leopard PJ Set



FOUR – Grocery Pick-Up // Another thing that could very well have contributed to my “good day + good mood” I tried online grocery shopping/pick-up.  I know I’m late to the game.  Everyone’s doin it!  I found a $10 off at Walmart, so I went online and ordered all our pantry fillers + household supplies + bathroom stuff…etc.  I’m a total control freak, in case you haven’t noticed, so I’m not down with anybody picking out my produce/meats and shit.  How does anyone know how firm or ripe I want my avocados?  I’m the werido that buys 4 avocados a week all different ripeness, so they last me.  We’ll chat about that more next week though. One more stop at TJ’s for those goodies.  Now I get to spend my lunch break at Target looking at cute stuff.  Target vs. Walmart….lol.  Target will forever win.  Now that is getting shit done!  I shouldn’t speak too soon though, I haven’t picked up my grocery haul yet.  Ha!  Stay tuned.

If you’re a walmart shopper, use this code below for $10 off.  Free grocery pick-up with $30 purchase.  And you don’t have to go into Walmart.  You’re welcome 🙂


Ps…it says it expired January 31, but it worked for me.
