{fall table setting}

SHOP: Table Runner | Gold Charger | White Dinner Plate | Pumpkin Plate | Gold Flat Ware | Wine Glass | Napkin | Faux Lambs Ear | Tobacco Basket

TGIF = Thank Goodness It’s Fall! Cute, huh? Would be better if it were Friday, just saying!

It’s no secret that I LOVE decking out my dining room table. Typically, it’s the first piece I decorate for the Holidays or seasons. Then I gradually work my way from top to bottom of the house. Not leaving anything untouched. It’s just the Holiday Whore in me!

I thought I finished the house for Fall + Halloween. Then, I accidentally hacked into my Sisters Amazon account and primed a shit ton of paper bats. NO clue where they are going to go, but I promise you – It’s gonna be bat-shit fun. Ha!

{amazon favorites}

SHOP: Dress | Stadium Purse | Denim Jacket (30% off)

Amazon addicts unite! Ha! I never thought I was a big Amazon-er. Then I started compiling this blog post and one thing led to another and I was going down the rabbit hole. And I realized, I’m an amazon whore…lol!

Truth: I’m still to cheap to pay for Prime so, I hack into my sister + Cory’s account to use theirs.

I’ve listed everything out with prices and a brief reason why I dig this item.

Do you have any of these Amazon finds? If so, let a sister know. Is there something I MUST try? Let me know!

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.

{weekend notes}

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!

{g i v e a w a y}

To say I am excited for the season change is an understatement. I’m pretty sure you’re all sick and tired of hearing me talk about it. HA! Yesterday was Summer Bucket List. Today a Fall GIVEAWAY!

First I want to THANK YOU for a few things……

Today I published my 944th blog post.

Next month marks my 4th year blogging. CRAZY!

Today marks ONE year since I signed up and began using  Shop Style Collective. Almost every item, fashion + home I can now make a small commission on. That is, if you click on the link, like what you see and purchase.

If you shop though my links on instagram or my blog, I GREATLY appreciate it. Whether you’ve shopped a link once or continue to do so I am extremely grateful.


I was able to surpass my one year goal with my ShopStyle account by a landslide!

With August being my best month yet!

Insert: happy dance!!!

And that’s all because of YOU! It takes a lot of time and effort to find sales and link every item, but it’s something I truly love to do. And I hope you continue to follow along!

So, let’s do a GIVEAWAY!

{target wednesday}

SHOP: Top | Jeans | Booties (similar)| Hat | Bag | Necklace (5 pack for $10)

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Short weeks are the goddamn death of me. I just can’t get my shit together. But, I’ve got my eye on the prize……Friday is gonna be here before we know it! Whoop!

I did just spend about an hour updating my calendar and oh dang. It’s about to get cray. Oh – Bay made the Lee Middle School 8th grade volleyball team. So excited for her. Which is part of the oh dang part when I updated my calendar. Plus Faith Formation starts. Omega Nu began last night and 4-H is back in effect on Monday. I say this every September, it’s the busiest + most expensive time of the year.

So, I went to Trader Joe’s + Target on my lunch break to get my mind off my calendar. Ha! Totally makes since right?

You guys, Target is HOT. I mean, like better than ever. So fucking dangerous.

The seasonal section is ALL THE THINGS. Then I hit the Women’s clothing section and went crazy!

{weekend notes}

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.

Highlights from the weekend……

{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?
