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

Ocean Beach. Sutro Baths. Union Square. Chinatown and the Marina. We hit all our favorite spots in the city. It was a fun weekend.

Somehow I woke up pumped to start the week. Here’s to making a new routine.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Finalize Holiday Cards (last year I didn’t send any out)
  • Figure out the new Weight Watchers plans
  • Try a new air fryer recipe
  • Deck the halls
  • Have Bay Bake something fun + festive for the blog
  • Pick up everything for my Christmas Table (velvet ribbon is hard to find)
  • Grab a coffee and walk the arboretum on a lunch break
  • Delete old photos from my phone
  • Find a fun Christmas pillow for my bed (I’m decorating my room too…lol)

This week on the blog: I’ll be sharing some sale finds. Dedicating a whole post to Bay’s new GreeLight debit card, because it’s that good. I have an Old Navy Try-On, because I keep popping in and finding new + cute things. I have a green jacket styled 4 ways that will be coming too!

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
  • Indulge in a night of ALL THE THINGS self-care
  • Lunch date at the Davis Arboretum
  • Dinner with girlfriends

This week on xoxostacyb: Trader Joe’s haul. ALL THE THINGS TJ’s that we buy over and over again. Was supposed to share last week and never got around to it. Bay Bakes or a new recipe…still undecided. And an Old Navy post with some cute new arrivals.

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.

{spring break recap}

dress: bella moda boutique | bag | earrings | sandals

Reentry is no joke. After a week off from work + school for Spring Break, we are back at it today. Not going to lie, I’m strugglin hard. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee. And I’ve got an iced coffee in my near future. I walked into my office at 7:45 am this morning and instantly felt at home. There is something to be said about routine. Really, really missed mine. Although we had a fucking blast last week.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Get Timothy + Archie Spring Show ready
  • Eat healthy AF using my WW app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water (I don’t think I’ve had any since April 19th)
  • Start making my bed again (also haven’t made it since April 19th)
  • Clear out email inboxes (one had over 900 emails…FML)
  • Make my favorite {thai coconut curry shrimp}
  • Try a DIY cropped sweatshirt
  • Target Tuesday…share all the things Target
  • Come up with a yummy, yet healthy dessert for my sweet tooth

This week on the blog: What I ate (my zero point food diary). Target Tuesday. Things I’m diggin in April.

Highlights from the Week…..

Kicked off Good Friday with Martini Mama Liz’s famous martinis. Needless to say, we got tips!

Saturday we celebrated Timothy Easter. GG and almost all of her great-grand kids.

My Easter salad with the edible flowers. Although, I don’t recommend eating them. GG said they didn’t taste all the great…lol. This is actually my {asparagus salad}

Someone was hoping BIG time they’d find the Golden Egg….and she did!!

{8 wing 7 // hot pink moment}

Top | Denim | Mules | Bag

Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.

Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.

  • Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
  • Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)

Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.

Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????
