I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….LONGEST short week in the history of short weeks. Anyone else with me? I still have all the same shit to get done, but with 1 less day to accomplish said shit. Therefore I’m sooooo ready for the W E E K E N D! I have good plans. Movie + Girlfriends + Tequilla + Antique Faire.
Enough of my ramble….I still have 5 more things on my mind……
ONE – You guys…..I spilled an entire swell bottle in my purse. According to Bay, I’m really lucky I didn’t have wine it my swell bottle this time. This is true! A wine drenched purse/wallet would be much, much worse. I’m talking everything. Medical/dental cards. Money. Checkbook. Checkbook register that is no longer legible.
I went to the 76 Station to get my cherry chap stick (I cannot live without it). I lent my old one to Bay in Tahoe and god knows, I do NOT share my cherry chap stick. Long story short, my homie at the 76 station, told me “Stacy, your money is wet!” I explained what happened. He was very unimpressed. Basically told me “I no take wet money, come one Stacy.” So I gave him my debit card and went along with my merry wet wallet day. Moral of the story, DO not lay a swell bottle ontop of your wallet in your purse. EVER! Worst part, it’s kinda Karma…FML!
TWO – I’m gathering + prepping for the beginning of my 20-day no sugar detox. Not really a detox. Just ridding added sugar from my diet. I had such great results the last time I tried it for a few days before Hawaii. I found this recipe for slow cooker marinara sauce….it’s from Daily Dose of Pepper. Zero smart points (for weight watchers peeps) + 60 calories per 1/2 cup of sauce. Not bad, huh. Best part – it’s BOMB. You can adjust the spice to your desire too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 (28 oz) cans crushed tomatoes, no salt added
- 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons dried basil
- 1-2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (stick to 1 tsp if you don’t like spice)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
Here’s what you’ll do:
Mix all ingredients in your slow cooker. Put the slow cooker in your garage. Unless you want your house and clothes to smell like an Italian restaurant for the next 2 days.
Set to low for 8 hours.
If you like a smoother sauce, (like me) once sauce has cooled. Blend in a food processor (in batches this recipe makes A LOT) until smooth.
Freeze in freezer bags what you don’t plan to use right away.
I have a couple of meals next week I plan to whip this sauce out for. Stay tuned!!
THREE – The Golden Globes are on this Sunday! Bay + I have an award show game we like to play. Popcorn BINGO. Check out this one that I found. Best Dressed!! I mean, If you’re anything like us, you’re watching for the amazing gowns + fashion too. Remember to saved a few pieces of popcorn to use as your dauber….lol.
I’m sure we will see tons of Off-the-shoulder + backless + red!! So excited!

Golden Globes BINGO
FOUR – American Eagle Soft + Sexy Double Lace Cami // Guess how much I paid in-store? $9.00! So good I bought two!! I was looking for something that was just a little more than the basic cami. Clearly for layering since its cold AF right now. Super flattering silhouette. Fitted at the chest, then flows, almost flaring at the waist. The plunging neckline is beautiful, and not too revealing for small chested gals, like myself. It’s lined in lace, not only on the front, but the back too.
