I left my heart in San Francisco 🎶
A day in the Bay with my Baes ❤️

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 ❤️

Monday, Monday, Monday! Why did you have to come so soon? We decided to spend Sunday at the beach, since it was 40 degrees cooler on the coast than home. It was THE most relaxing day ever. Which means, we got home pretty late. Which means Monday happened wayyyy too fast. Which means I’m running on slowwwww today. Hope you all had a great couple of days. The summer days dwindling down and I want to enjoy every last minute till school starts. And life gets cray AF!

BIG thank you to everyone that messaged me to let me know my website had been hacked. I reached out to WordPress and it was taken care of within minutes. Thanks for lookin out homies!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Order Bay’s pictures (so many to choose from, it’s so hard)
  • Get my Fair Hair (it’s totally a thang..lol)
  • Spending freeze for the week
  • Plan a weekend hike
  • Pick up flowers and plants for the house
  • Share an Old Navy Try-On
  • Get caught up on laundry..I’m so behind

{summer to-do’s}

It’s official – SUMMER 2019 is here and we couldn’t be happier!! Friday + the 1st day of Summer falling on the same day. Not a coincidence! HA! If you’ve been following for a while, then you know we’re BIG on seasonal bucket lists. It’s helps us make the most of the next few months and do all the fun things we’ve been wanting to do.

Keeping a running list is a great way to remember all seasonal things you enjoy doing or look forward to do.  When we have a free weekend, I like to refer to our To-Do’s and check items off as we go.

Here’s to an amazing Summer. Cheers!

Make sure to comment below on fun things you’ve go on your to-do list.

In case no one told you today:

You’re doing great

Keep on truckin

You totally got this

And don’t skip your Monday workout.

This morning was so weird. Bay stayed the night at a friends house. I realized that we no longer have zero period drop off. Which means I get 30 extra minutes each morning. THIRTY minutes is life-changing. Especially in the mornings. And I haven’t seen my kiddo since Friday morning. I cannot wait to squeeze her this evening.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Find the perfect dress for Summerland 2019
  • Lunch date with my calendar
  • Work on a fun + festive 4th of July treat
  • Catch up on laundry
  • Spend some q-time with Bay
  • Practice on a lemon granita
  • Sit at the pool in the evenings
  • J.Crew Factory Try-on
  • Write a recipe for my Greek Burgers
  • Use the WW app like it’s my day job
  • Make my {homemade pesto}
  • Set a pretty red, white + blue table

This week on the xoxostacyb: Target Tuesday, since I found so much cute shit at my last trip. Can’t decide if I’ll share my crunch wrap recipe or my sheet pan salmon dinner? We’ll see! And lastly – fun dresses under $50 for summer parties + graduations + weddings.
