{weekend notes}

Just another Magic Monday. Switching it up. Moday’s don’t have to be manic. Let’s make them magic. What do you think? After a full 7 hours of sleep last night (which I never, ever get) I did NOT wake up refreshed and ready for the day. But, instead of thinking about how shitty today could be. I’m turning it around and thinking of all the ways it can me magic. I know, sounds corny, but my mind + heart can make or break my day. So, this is working for me….so far!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

This past weekend was sprinkled with a healthy dose of family + friends + sunshine + relaxation. It was pretty damn good!

Intentions for the Week:

  • stay on track with Weight Watchers
  • watch my girls first volleyball game of the season
  • celebrate my Mom’s birthday
  • finish decorating for Fall
  • shoot some new outfits for the blog
  • purge all my Fall decor
  • make it to the gym, no matter what
  • actually start a mini reset…and not just talk about it
  • try a tortellini soup
  • plan a Napa day-date with Cory
  • watch Jenny get married
  • complement someone different everyday

This week on xoxostacyb: Old Navy Try-On. Fall home refresh. The Mississippi pot roast recipe you’ve all been asking for.

Happy Friday the 13th + Full Moon. You better bust out all your crystals and sage. Shit’s might get wild tonight! Ha!

I keep reading about the “Harvest Moon” tonight. The first full moon that’s been visible across the U.S. since 2000. They say it wont happen again till 2049. So make sure you check it out.

Weekend Plans: WE. HAVE. ABSOLUTELY. NOTHING! Which means I’ll probably jam pack it with all kinds of random shit!

5 things I’m loving this week……

You guys, I am having a day. You know one of those days where nothing goes right? So, you just start laughing at all the things that go wrong.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Clumsy AF! I’ve dropped everything I’ve touched. Which is the first sign that I’m about to have “a day”

I was 20 minutes late for work. Mainly because it’s fucking Western Day for spirit week. Does anyone else dread spirit week? Bay needed help prying the pig shit off the bottom of her boots she wanted to wear to school. I can only imagine the aroma coming off them as she sits in class.

Not to mention I’ve got a zit. And this aint any ol zit. This thing is between my eyes. Like a 3rd eye. When I’m talking to people, I can see them staring at it. HA! Swear. And I’m a total picker/popper kinda gal. But, I’ve vowed to not touch it. I think it’s even giving me a mild headache? Is that possible? There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world for this bad boy!

I opened up my lunch and realized……I forgot a fork. And most days, that probably wouldn’t be the end of the world. But, I’ve been intermittent fasting. Meaning, at noon today, I hadn’t had anything other than water + coffee since 8:00 pm yesterday. So, 16 hours later you can only imagine not having a fork. HANGRY AF! I dug out a disposable fork. From the garbage (my personal garbage in my office). That I used yesterday. Washed it with hand soap and warm water (because that’s all I got). And enjoyed the hell out of those leftovers. Laughing the whole damn time.

Then, I went to buy a skeleton hand. At Walmart. And my card got declined. Because I’ve failed to balance my checkbook. So, I had to pull out my phone, transfer money. Then get back in line to make my purchase. Oh, yeah – It was a whoppin $3.08. Still laughing.

So, what’s next? We shall see! I cannot wait till bedtime!

But to be honest – how can you have a shit day on Taco Tuesday?

Good morning!

How was everyone’s weekend? Hopefully very relaxing + full on sunshine. We kept it pretty low key and it was exactly what we were needing. After a busy few weeks, I was craving some stay-home time.

Intentions for the Week:

  • buy all the pumpkins at Trader Joe’s
  • hit my step goal
  • lunch date with my new planner/calendar
  • make a diy pumpkin centerpiece (that will last all season)
  • get my ass to the gym
  • start a mini reset
  • 10 pm bedtimes…no matter what
  • decorate the front porch for fall
  • edit photos in advance
  • drop off donations
  • make a garage sale pile
  • log all my food on the WW app

This week on xoxostacyb: I’ve got a new weeknight recipe. A one pot recipe. I’ll be sharing my little Fall home refresh. Announce the winner of my {g i v e a w a y}. Have you entered yet? And some Target goodies. Because Target is my jam at the moment.

{g i v e a w a y}

To say I am excited for the season change is an understatement. I’m pretty sure you’re all sick and tired of hearing me talk about it. HA! Yesterday was Summer Bucket List. Today a Fall GIVEAWAY!

First I want to THANK YOU for a few things……

Today I published my 944th blog post.

Next month marks my 4th year blogging. CRAZY!

Today marks ONE year since I signed up and began using  Shop Style Collective. Almost every item, fashion + home I can now make a small commission on. That is, if you click on the link, like what you see and purchase.

If you shop though my links on instagram or my blog, I GREATLY appreciate it. Whether you’ve shopped a link once or continue to do so I am extremely grateful.


I was able to surpass my one year goal with my ShopStyle account by a landslide!

With August being my best month yet!

Insert: happy dance!!!

And that’s all because of YOU! It takes a lot of time and effort to find sales and link every item, but it’s something I truly love to do. And I hope you continue to follow along!

So, let’s do a GIVEAWAY!

{end of summer bucket list}

SHOP: Tank Top (under $20) | Denim | Heels | Clutch (similar) | Headband | Necklace

We hardly made a dent in our Summer To-Do’s. And since Summer isn’t going anywhere just yet, I think we might as well take advantage of this warm weather + sunshine while it lasts.

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Short weeks are the goddamn death of me. I just can’t get my shit together. But, I’ve got my eye on the prize……Friday is gonna be here before we know it! Whoop!

I did just spend about an hour updating my calendar and oh dang. It’s about to get cray. Oh – Bay made the Lee Middle School 8th grade volleyball team. So excited for her. Which is part of the oh dang part when I updated my calendar. Plus Faith Formation starts. Omega Nu began last night and 4-H is back in effect on Monday. I say this every September, it’s the busiest + most expensive time of the year.

So, I went to Trader Joe’s + Target on my lunch break to get my mind off my calendar. Ha! Totally makes since right?

You guys, Target is HOT. I mean, like better than ever. So fucking dangerous.

The seasonal section is ALL THE THINGS. Then I hit the Women’s clothing section and went crazy!

{weekend notes}

Wow, September is HERE! August was literally a blink of an eye. I’m 100% ready for Fall to begin. I think the excitement of each Season change get’s me so eager for what’s to come. September brings structure and everything falls back into place. Don’t get me wrong, I live for Summer and all it entails, but I’m craving the routine of our new September schedule.

We spent the long weekend at our family cabin in Tahoe. Our final, final beach weekend for the summer. Our last summer hurrah! And man – it was all that. We sat at the beach on Sunday for almost 6 hours and it was pure heaven!

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed and not really ready to take this Monday-est Tuesday by the horns. But, here we go!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Order a 2020 calendar
  • Give myself a mani + pedi…I’m thinking RED!
  • Gather everything for a Fall inspired GIVEAWAY
  • Make a Mississippi Pot Roast (even thought it’s hot as hell)
  • Track all my food on the Weight Watchers App
  • Finalize my Fall front porch
  • Clean out the fridge
  • Continue Intermittent fasting
  • Plan a fun date night
  • 4-H enrollment

This week on xoxostacyb: new Target finds. Pull out all the things Fall from the archives. And a Fall home refresh.
