Hi friends. Shit is just so weird right now. Still going through all the emotions. Stressed. Sad. Pissed off – that I can’t easily get the basics. Not trying to hoard, just need some necessities. Scared of the un-fucking-known. Happy to have more slow time.

Lets all remember to spread kindness. The world needs that shit right now!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Create a new habit – they say it take 2 weeks, and I’ve got that!
  • Stay healthy
  • Find fun ways to move my body without going to the gym
  • Take Charlie for lots of walks
  • Keep a positive mind
  • KonMari my closet
  • Master at-home mani + pedi’s
  • Come up with a tequila + emergen-C cocktail
  • Only purchase what we actually need
  • Work on my skincare

And since I think we all have extra slow time, I rounded up THE best board games. I read the reviews. Did some homework. Gathered a great selection of games all available on Amazon, so you don’t need to leave the house.

{diy dipped vase + $9 arrangement}

SHOP: Polka Dot Top | Denim ($20) | Necklace | Vase

I’ve been on the hunt for a large dipped vase. And it’s been a no-go!

Started digging through my vase collection and found this canister. Tossed the lid and thought, hmmmm! I can make this cute.

This DIY took me 1 day. And I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out! Don’t you love it when that happens? I can add this to my Pinterest success…ha!

{fall home refresh}

Hanging Basket with Leather Handle | Faux String of Pearls Plant | Faux Pampas Grass: Amazon // West Elm

It’s almost that time. I can smell it. I can feel it. Fall is officially here on September 23rd. Summer is my boo, but I think Fall just might possibly be my #1! Here are some ways that I welcomed Fall to our home. Easy things you can do without spending a ton of money. Just simple touches that make a BIG difference.

Just another Magic Monday. Switching it up. Moday’s don’t have to be manic. Let’s make them magic. What do you think? After a full 7 hours of sleep last night (which I never, ever get) I did NOT wake up refreshed and ready for the day. But, instead of thinking about how shitty today could be. I’m turning it around and thinking of all the ways it can me magic. I know, sounds corny, but my mind + heart can make or break my day. So, this is working for me….so far!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

This past weekend was sprinkled with a healthy dose of family + friends + sunshine + relaxation. It was pretty damn good!

Intentions for the Week:

  • stay on track with Weight Watchers
  • watch my girls first volleyball game of the season
  • celebrate my Mom’s birthday
  • finish decorating for Fall
  • shoot some new outfits for the blog
  • purge all my Fall decor
  • make it to the gym, no matter what
  • actually start a mini reset…and not just talk about it
  • try a tortellini soup
  • plan a Napa day-date with Cory
  • watch Jenny get married
  • complement someone different everyday

Wow, September is HERE! August was literally a blink of an eye. I’m 100% ready for Fall to begin. I think the excitement of each Season change get’s me so eager for what’s to come. September brings structure and everything falls back into place. Don’t get me wrong, I live for Summer and all it entails, but I’m craving the routine of our new September schedule.

We spent the long weekend at our family cabin in Tahoe. Our final, final beach weekend for the summer. Our last summer hurrah! And man – it was all that. We sat at the beach on Sunday for almost 6 hours and it was pure heaven!

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed and not really ready to take this Monday-est Tuesday by the horns. But, here we go!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Order a 2020 calendar
  • Give myself a mani + pedi…I’m thinking RED!
  • Gather everything for a Fall inspired GIVEAWAY
  • Make a Mississippi Pot Roast (even thought it’s hot as hell)
  • Track all my food on the Weight Watchers App
  • Finalize my Fall front porch
  • Clean out the fridge
  • Continue Intermittent fasting
  • Plan a fun date night
  • 4-H enrollment

This week on xoxostacyb: new Target finds. Pull out all the things Fall from the archives. And a Fall home refresh.

{fern centerpiece diy}

Hi friends! It’s been a minute since I shared a fun + easy DIY. More like hours. Weeks. Months. I’ve had this post written and ready to rock + roll and honestly kept forgetting about it. And I think it deserves a dedicated post!

Each Monday on my Intentions for the week, I try to incorporate one of these main goals:

  • Something health-wise
  • Something Fitness-ish
  • Do or make something with my hands
  • Some kinds of self care
  • Something with food, because we all know now – I love cooking
  • Something kind
  • Mixed in with a whole bunch of other random shit that I either want to do or need to do

This Fern Center piece DIY was one of my weekly “do something with my hands!” I swear when I create, DIY, garden, organize….I feel so accomplished. And it literally makes my mood lift times 100.

I mean how can this fern centerpiece not make you smile, at least just a little?
