{lets reminisce 2017}


Happy 2018!  I hope your year is off to a great start.  I’m working on goals and all the health + fitness shit that comes with the new year.  But how about 2017?  Bay + I looked back at photos the other night and laughed and talked about all the good times we had.  Adventures.  Life stuff.  Friends + family.

Before we start talking 2018, lets reminisce 2017 for a minute……

Guess what guys?  Today is my two year blog-versary!!
Not much has changed in these two years. I still drop the f bomb daily.  Drink chard as if it were my day job.  Cook enough to feed an army.  Celebrate any + every holiday.  And obviously still a shopaholic!!  

What has changed, thanks to all of you are my stats….

{dear kids: if i die, please don’t be a shithead}

I came across this article last week and I loved it.  It’s basically parenting wisdom summed up in 10 pieces of advice.  The Do’s + Don’ts are actually something I think more than kids could benefit from.  What I’m saying is, this article is a lesson for most adults too!  Read it.  Laugh a little.  And hopefully realize that you’re just a little bit of a shithead!!

Dear Kids: If I die, please don’t be a Sh**head


Dear Children: 

Should I die from heat stroke in hot yoga class I am being forced to take tomorrow by my alleged “friends” here is a list of ten of the most important life lessons I want you to remember.

Love Mom

1) DON’T be a sh** head.

Don’t be a sh** head is actually the only piece of advice you will ever need in life. A sh** head can best be summed up as a person who thinks they are better than everyone and therefore can act however they want without taking into account the feelings of others. Just think about it: ISIS, filled with sh**heads. Nazis, sh**heads. Westboro Baptist Church, sh**heads. That girl in fourth grade that invited everyone in the class but you to her birthday party, sh** head. and her parents are also sh**heads.

You will, unfortunately, find sh**heads everywhere, they will be in your school, on your sport teams, sitting beside you in the movie theatre, the coffee shop, on the train, the airplane, the beach, maybe even at Thanksgiving dinner.

To my fellow Unicorn Moms + Unicorn friends…CHEERS!!!

Today lets just chat about a little of this + a little of that……



Soooo how many times is it appropriate to eat ice cream in one week?  Asking for a friend!

Nordstrom Early Access Anniversary Sale begins 7/13.  Get your credit cards ready bitches!

This article.  Ha!  Stop whatever you’re doing (because you’re clearly not working anyway) and read it!  Before the Internet – The New Yorker

Currently debating on not going pee today, due to my legs feeling like they may fall off my body after Sarah P’s workout this morning.

Speaking of Sarah P…did you know that the two of us had a little business together…. Coaster Queens?  We made coasters 🙂  We still have a FB page for it and I just got a notification and it made me laugh.

A Pizza Hut recently opened in town.  Like walking distance from my house.  That’s it!

I legit ordered a visor.  I’m channeling my inner Aunt Penny!

{summer to-do’s}


Happy solstice my friends.  Today is the beginning of SUMMER!!! (the longest/hottest day of the year too..Ha)  Celebrate it!  We’ve been patiently waiting for this day all year.

Bailey and I stayed up last night discussing what we want to-do and see over the summery months.  We’ve made our list and can’t wait to begin checking things off as we go!!

We tend to make these fun lists every season.  Back in March I posted our Spring list…and September our Fall list.  You can read them below 🙂

I’m alive!

I promise I will get back to the blog…maybe next week?  Maybe tomorrow?  I have so many recipes + #ootd’s + cute shit to share with you all!  But until then, I wanted to share a little of this + a little of that, since I had a couple free moments 🙂


I’ve been a little MIA here, but I did start a xoxostacyb facebook page.  Well, actually Instagram made me do it.  In order to have a Personal Blog page, you must first have a business facebook page.  Long story short….all my Instagram photos automatically post on this fb page now.  Click here and follow…..xoxostacyb – Facebook!!  If you want 🙂

Tomorrow is the last day of Kaia Fit BRIK!  I killed it at the challenge. My measurements on the other hand…not too sure yet.  Pray for me!

I will be using this cute printable to capture a last day of school photo of my soon to be 6th grader.  How did that happen so fast?

Happy Thursday!!  Sorry, but I’m saving my “Whoop Whoop!” for tomorrow.



  • Exciting news: I’m going to be a Tia to a new baby niece/nephew in November ♥


  • I went to Target yesterday.  Surprise, surprise!  I bought a really cute top and a popcorn maker, like the old school air popper one and I’m super pumped about it!


  • My recurring snake dreams are at an all time high.  EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!  So I googled it: a fear or an unresolved issue.  WTF?
