{target tuesday}

SHOP: Tee | Jeans | Sunglasses ($10)

Not to be trusted alone at Target! Or at Target in general! Have you ever seen anything more fitting?

Once again, I’m sharing ALL THE THINGS Target today. A try-on + TONS of Hearth & Hand new arrivals. If Target had a Bar – my life would be perfect. I could sip chardonnay and I stroll the aisles. But, that could also be very dangerous. Ha! I guess Starbucks will do.

And I apologize in advance – Target has some really cute shit right now and you’re going to have to make a Target run ASAP!

New Fall decor items from Hearth & Hand hit Target stores on Sunday. And I think it’s safe to say – I’m obsessed. I love the colors. The textures. The Faux Amber Olive Branch Arrangements are so good and $10! I may have to pick up the Charcoal Stripe Area Rug for my Fall Front Porch. And the Wall Mount Toilet Paper Holder – random, I know, but LOVE this style. The Black Mirror with Shelf will fit perfectly in my tiny entryway. These Apothecary Glass Storage Bottles for bathroom counters are perfection. Stoneware Utensil Caddy would make a great flower vase. This Wood Letter Board – great for a first day of school sign. And of course, the Coffee Mugs always get my attention.

{weekend notes}

Fair hangovers are real. Anyone else in need of an extra day for sleep and detox? Ha! As always, such a fun Fair weekend. We didn’t make it out there as much as years past and I’m still exhausted!

I know I keep saying it but, just two days left of Summer before the school begins. Savor it friends. Enjoy every second of it. Because once school starts….everything starts. Extra curricular. Sports. Labor Day. Then the Holidays!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Final Summer party with friends
  • Hit my bedtime (I’ve become a night owl)
  • Have the acrylics removed from Bay’s nails (payback is a bitch Kissey)
  • All the self care the night before school
  • 1 st Day of School
  • Focus on fit bit + water goals
  • Attend the Crush Ceremony at Matchbook Winery
  • Work on a Fall table setting
  • Celebrate my girl becoming a teenager. The BIG 13!

This week on the blog……Target Tuesday tomorrow. Did you see all the Fall new arrivals from Hearth & Hand? After many requests, I’ll be sharing the White Bean Caprese Salad recipe that I made over the weekend. I actually stole the recipe from my Mom. How about an American Eagle Try-on?

Highlights from the Weekend……

Leopard PJ Top | Shorts | Mug

You don’t go to Target because you need something. You go to Target and let Target tell you what you need.  Am I right?  I went in for toilet paper + mascara and left with new leopard 🐆 PJ’s and a mug ☕️😂 didn’t even get the mascara.

All the things I have on my list and all the things I don’t need 🤷🏼‍♀️

{gift guide: father’s day}

Father’s Day is right around the corner. I’m talking 10 days ladies. I swear, Father’s Day sneaks up on me every year. And I think we can all agree…..Men are either the easiest to buy for or the very hardest? Am I right? Like, there is NO in between. So, we better hop to it!

Sometimes we overthink things. Don’t stress. It’s not all about the fancy gifts. Sometimes it’s just the thought of planning some quality time. A little extra effort. Especially when it comes from the kiddos. I’m sharing some ideas on how to make Father’s Day extra special.

Plan one of his favorite activities //

Whether you go out to his fave brunch or dinner spot. Maybe the golf course or Top Golf to hit some golf balls. The lake for a day on the water. The local brewery for some beers. Does he like going to the movies? Grab all his top candy + snacks and head to the show. Or the store he loves to shop at. Whatever it is – makes reservations and arrangements ahead of time. That way you can just go and have fun!

Plan a BBQ or brunch //

Pick his number one meal. Breakfast. Brunch. BBQ. Whatever it is….grocery shop and have it all prepped. Have the kids set the table. How cute are they necktie napkins? Super easy to do. I’ll share the DIY below. These menus are the perfect touch. They are customizable do you can add anything you’d like.

Square Dish Set (on sale) | Gold Flatware | Linen Napkins | Table Runner (only $7) | Stainless Steel Vase: Serendipity

Click here: Necktie Napkin Fold DIY // Free Printable Menu

A fun gift //

Big or small. Something he’d never buy for himself. Or maybe something you know he could use. Have the kids wrap it up with the Sunday newspaper. Make handmade cards. I promise whatever is in the box will put a smile on his face.

I rounded up a bunch of tried + true great items that I think any dad would LOVE.

{summer front porch + diy striped doormat}

Stay Awhile Sign | Large White Planter | Small White Planter | Wood Plant Stand | Chevron Rug

It’s Frriiiiidayyyy!! We made it. Longest short week everrrrr!

You guys, the worst thing happened last night.

I dropped and shattered my iPhone screen. I was unloading groceries and dropped it in my driveway. Face down. You know that feeling when you pick it up and the screen is fine and you kinda wanna do a cartwheel? Yeah, I didn’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling this time. Legit wanted to cry. It cracked so much that when I run my fingers across the screen, it feels like I could get a splinter.

It’s getting fixed now. I feel fucking naked. My phone, it has my to-do list in the notes section. I can’t text Bay. Can’t look at my MyFitnessPal to track my macros…and I really want a snack. Ha. My alarms? What if I forget to do something. No online banking. No random scrolling. No googling. No email. No Pandora. No clock. No Waze to figure out the fastest way to get someplace. So weird. So sad too. Being without my phone for 2 hours can make me feel like I cannot function. Anyway, on the bright side – it’s getting fixed. And all will be right in the world again. Maybe I should do one of those digital detox weekends? Nah, F that!

What I’m really here to share is my updated front porch. I gave it a little face lift.

Hosed her off. Pulled out some spray paint. New fresh plants + mulch. And I’m in LOVE! We live in a rental, so there is only so much I can do. I’m not trying to break the bank. This was a VERY budget friendly patio refresh. Because, let’s keep it real, I’d rather buy a new pair of Madewell jeans with that money…HA!

Stay Awhile Sign | Large White Planter | Small White Planter | Wood Plant Stand | Chevron Rug

This summer weather makes me want to squeal. I get so frickin happy when it’s officially nice enough to open the windows + sliders. I just want to sit on the patio and sip my coffee….or wine. And the sunlight last wayyy past dinnertime. Ahhh…isn’t it fantastic?

{weekend notes}

Well hello to the Monday-ist Tuesday there ever was!

Question: If you could drop everything today, and travel anywhere in the world…..where would you go?

Mine will forever be Italy. I love experiencing new places. Near or far! Taking photos. Walking around. Currently suffering from Major Wanderlust, can you tell? But, sitting at this beach did the trick this weekend.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Work on our Summer Bucket List
  • Dedicate an evening to all our fave self care
  • Plan out Bay’s summer (babysitting + camps + vacay’s)
  • Make some bomb.com dinner’s
  • Finish Girl, Stop Apologizing (such a great book)
  • American Eagle Try-On…they’ve got some cute shit!!!
  • Finishing touches on the front porch
  • Father’s Day gift guide for all the dudes in our lives
  • Count my Macros + log everything
  • Chill Out!

This week on xoxostacyb: You got my {Italian Salad} yesterday, and I truly apologize that it posted without the actual recipe yesterday. On my end it looked as though everything was just so, but I used a “page break” instead of a “read more” option. Which cut off the ingredients + directions. It’s corrected now! Other posts coming this week….my front porch refresh. Some fun dresses that wont break the bank. And maybe even a salmon recipe.

Highlights from the long weekend…..

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on our way to Tahoe Friday. It was the largest I’ve ever seen it in my years of driving to the cabin.

Stay Awhile Sign | Floral Print Maxi Dress

Hi friends! Today is all about our favorite store, Target! Target Tuesday, that is. I went in for 2 things last week. Just two things….and walked out with this dress and sign. Damn you, Target! I’m working on our tiny little entryway, stay tuned. And this dress, I’ll have it up sometime this week. Along with fun summer dresses on the cheap!

The Hearth & Hand with Magnolia section just got a shit-ton of new arrivals. Scroll down for my faves. Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, I’ve linked some cute tanks, tabletop items and door mats. Which would all work for 4th of July too! We’ll be in Lake Tahoe, so tanks will not be needed this year…lol. Speaking of tank tops, Target has a select section of tanks + tee’s that are currently marked down to $5! Like this one I’m wearing. And remember that leopard tank from last month? It’s only $5 too! Some basic crew neck tee’s and v-necks are also included! It’s a great time to pick up some basics for the warmer months…if we ever get them!

Now get a Target trip on your schedule. Or better yet, add that shit to your drive-up order and save yourself some time. Have you tried the drive-up service yet? It’s legit a lifesaver!

{diy succulent bowl}

These succulent bowls are insanely easy to throw together. Probably my easiest DIY to date. Once you’ve gathered all your materials, it’s really just adjusting the succulents to your liking. And that’s basically it. Swear.

I kept seeing these on the gram’ this week and feel head over heels for them. The only difference, I used real plants vs. faux. Either totally do the trick. But, since my Mom is my succulent dealer, I opted to go the real deal route. You guys, her succulent grow fucking wild. It’s wild. Ha! They get watered every.single.day and they LOVE it. I do that to my succulents and the shrivel up and die. WTF? Stacy’s Mom has got the succulent thing going on!
