It’s so nice to be back. While stepping away last week to mute + learn. I’m sure we can all agree, it’s been eyeopening in so many ways. Although I wasn’t very vocal online, I can promise you that offline, there were many, many conversations had. A lot of reading. So much learning. I truly believe I can do better and that starts at home.

  • finish off my final 3 days with no added sugar
  • buy a nice bottle of chardonnay for Thursday to celebrate 10-days of no added sugar

Monday! New start. New week. I somehow managed to make it to the gym at 5am this morning. Even after a long weekend in Vegas. Truth is, I haven’t made it to the gym on a Monday is about a month. Just like the saying goes “Never skip a Monday” that shit has some truth to it. I’m kicking today’s ass and I know I wouldn’t be if it hasn’t been for the sweat sesh! Going to try and make this a Monday habit!

Viva Las Vegas Baby! We pulled off a helluva surprise for Bay’s BIG 1-3! So much fun. But, man – there is no place like home. My bed never felt better than it did last night!

Intentions for the Week:

  • get my ass to the gym (everyday this week is my goal)
  • wine + planning with the Omega Nu “fun committee”
  • at home mani
  • celebrate my teenager one last time
  • get back to packing lunches the night before (such a time saver in the mornings)
  • clean out my purse + wallet (it’s straight up embarrassing)
  • try a new recipe
  • catch up on some much needed sleep

This week on xoxostacyb: celebrating another national day this week. I’ll be sharing a new recipe. Some sales. And maybe, hopefully my fern centerpiece DIY! Stay tuned!

Highlights from the Weekend…..

Somehow we (my mom, sister & I) pulled off the surprise of a lifetime. Back in December I pulled the trigger on 4 George Strait concert tickets. Then asked my mom + sis what they thought about taking Bay for her 13th Birthday. The concert was on her actual 13th birthday!

Friday, August 23rd at 6:30am. the morning of Bay’s 13th birthday, we woke her up with party hats and blowers.

She had 5 minutes to get up, get dressed, brush her teeth and catch our flight.

She was 100% surprised. And I was beginning to think she had an idea that something was up.

Thank you so much for all the sweet messages + texts + comments. Bay loved reading them all. She felt pretty special ❤️
