{what I ate // weight watchers zero point day}

What I ate Wednesday. One full day of eating ZERO Weight Watchers Points. And I didn’t die…lol. Or starve for that matter. Planning is key, but it’s 100% doable. I’ve been promising this post for

Since my blog post: {weight watchers 1 week results} more than 15 of you clicked on my link and signed up for Weight Watchers. It makes my heart so, so happy! I know, for a fact, that when you follow this plan you will be 100% successful. I love all the DM’s and messages…so keep them coming. For example, I ran into my girlfriend Toni last weekend. She began her Weight Watchers journey back in January. Guess how much she’s lost in 4 months?

{a little of this + a little of that}

Dress (on sale) | Denim Jacket (on sale) | Hat | Sunglasses | Necklace

Good Morning friends. It’s kind of hard to believe THIS weekend is Memorial Day.

I’m still on my NO online shopping this week kick. Totally knowing this sale was going to happen.

I had something completely different planned for today, but when I woke up and saw everything that was already SOLD OUT on the NSALE….change of plans. You gotta jump on it Mama’s. If there is something you want. Get it. Get it quick. Remember – Nordstrom has the very best customer service. If you get something and change your mind. Or just don’t like it as much as you initially thought, return it! It’s FREE! Just use the return UPS slip in your package and you’re good to go. But, I promise you one thing…..

ALL the good shit will be gone in the blink of the eye.

And for those of you that give zero fucks for the Nordstrom sale……

a little of this + a little of that //

As I was typing this blog post, I saw in the top corner the number 887. This my friends, is my 887th post! So nuts!

Question: What’s your Taco Bell order? We’ve all got one, right? Mine: beefy 5-layer burrito lots of mild sauce and a crunchy taco. Sometimes I get real wild and ask for chips + guac too!

{target tuesday}

Stay Awhile Sign | Floral Print Maxi Dress

Hi friends! Today is all about our favorite store, Target! Target Tuesday, that is. I went in for 2 things last week. Just two things….and walked out with this dress and sign. Damn you, Target! I’m working on our tiny little entryway, stay tuned. And this dress, I’ll have it up sometime this week. Along with fun summer dresses on the cheap!

The Hearth & Hand with Magnolia section just got a shit-ton of new arrivals. Scroll down for my faves. Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, I’ve linked some cute tanks, tabletop items and door mats. Which would all work for 4th of July too! We’ll be in Lake Tahoe, so tanks will not be needed this year…lol. Speaking of tank tops, Target has a select section of tanks + tee’s that are currently marked down to $5! Like this one I’m wearing. And remember that leopard tank from last month? It’s only $5 too! Some basic crew neck tee’s and v-necks are also included! It’s a great time to pick up some basics for the warmer months…if we ever get them!

Now get a Target trip on your schedule. Or better yet, add that shit to your drive-up order and save yourself some time. Have you tried the drive-up service yet? It’s legit a lifesaver!

{friday 5}

Sandals: Nordstrom // Free People | Denim

Happy Friday, Friends! I can’t stop saying “Happy Friday” I said it to every.single.person this morning at Nugget. At 6am. Even to the cashier at the gas station. To my co-workers right as I walked into the office. When I answer the phone. Ha! Guess I’m really ready and in need of the freakin weekend! I stayed up till past midnight cleaning the shit out of my house. You’d think I’d be exhausted? Nope, just happy it’s Friday apparently. You guys, today in my Great Grandma (we call her GG) 94th birthday. Ninety Four years young. I’m still in shock at what a complete bad ass she is.

Weekend plans: Whoop it up with GG tonight. Dutch + pedi + Ulta (I despise Ulta, just FYI) date with Bay tomorrow morning. Completing + turning in Bay’s 4-H record book. It’s godawful…..no joke. Wine sippin with some of my fave gals. Sleeping in. Extra coffee in my jams. Cooking. Meal prepping. Just a few other things I’m super looking forward to.

{diy succulent bowl}

These succulent bowls are insanely easy to throw together. Probably my easiest DIY to date. Once you’ve gathered all your materials, it’s really just adjusting the succulents to your liking. And that’s basically it. Swear.

I kept seeing these on the gram’ this week and feel head over heels for them. The only difference, I used real plants vs. faux. Either totally do the trick. But, since my Mom is my succulent dealer, I opted to go the real deal route. You guys, her succulent grow fucking wild. It’s wild. Ha! They get watered every.single.day and they LOVE it. I do that to my succulents and the shrivel up and die. WTF? Stacy’s Mom has got the succulent thing going on!

Blazer | Bodysuit | Shorts | Sandals | Belt | Sunglasses

My belt is as fake as my tan. Ha! This single mama can’t score the real deal. But, why would I? When the $20 knock off is legit? $20 vs. $500! Today I’m sharing some closet staples that you can mix + match though the seasons. Like this blazer I’ve owned FOR-EV-Errrr. Looks great with jeans + dresses + skirts and shorts! Levi’s shorts that I can’t stop rockin. They are the perfect no-ass-showin’ length. The bodysuit, I know, I have showed it to you 3 times now. With a maxi skirt + overalls + and now I add shorts to the list. It comes in black too and I’m gonna go ahead and need it too. The TB Millers that I swear by. Breaking it all down below……

Minus the rain in the forecast. It’s not really going to rain is it? I’ve got plans. Outdoor plans. Get it together Mother Nature!

Good morning! And happy Monday. I haven’t typed those words in a while. Truth is, I can’t remember the last time I woke up feelin it on a Monday….till today. I forced myself to the gym at 5am.

Happy FRIDAYYYYY!

A BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mama’s out there. I hope you get to rest + relax at some point this weekend. I hope you get the day off from wiping butts. Maybe even brunch withOUT the rugrats. Or breakfast in bed? Preferably take-out so your kitchen isn’t f’ed up. A special handmade card from school. Oh and how about one of those macaroni noodle necklaces? Yes, I hope you get one of those too! And maybe a homemade coupon book? Filled with “leave me alone” vouchers. Ha! Whatever you do, have a good one! Cheers!

Weekend plans? You guys, I’m a free woman. Well, kinda. More like my calendar is free AF! Meeting some of my girlfriends for happy hour tonight. A little shopping tomorrow. Followed with a Mother’s Day spa date at Cache Creek Casino. Sunday we’re doing the Capay Garden Tour. Never done it before, but I keep hearing great things. I’m looking forward to a weekend of family + friends + cheers!

Now let’s chat about steps….baby steps. We’ve slowly been making an effort to be less wasteful and reduce our plastic waste. Today I’m sharing some of the simple changes we’ve made in our home. I know that even the small part I play can actually make a difference
