{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!

{halloween snack mix}

Halloween is 23 days away. Bay just decided today that she wants to be a bumble bee. So now I frantically try to find her the perfect bumble bee costume….that she actually likes. Say a little prayer for me, K?

And you know by now that I’m a complete Holiday Whore…ha! Sounds so bad. lol. Any excuse to make something fun + festive. I’m here for it. Pumpkin shaped everything. Ghosts + spiders. I’m on it!

Some good ones from the archives:

  • Remember the {pumpkin donut holes} They are not only crazy easy, they’re crazy good!
  • The {mini pumpkin pies} I’ve been making for years. They are the perfect individual sized dessert for those of us (my hand is raised) that have absolutely NO control when it comes to pumpkin pie.
  • {pumpkin snickerdoodles} a spin on GG’s (my grandmother) classic cookie.
  • Back in 2016, I shared {pumpkin muffins} and I need to put these on my to-make list to re photograph them!
  • Last years I busted out the {spider cupcakes} for our annual trick-or-treating night at the Nelson’s
  • And last but not least, {pumpkin spice creamer} inspired by my girlfriend Justine!

This year, I’d like to introduce you to a dangerously delicious snack mix.

{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!

{DIY pumpkin centerpiece}

Wood Pumpkin Serve Board (on sale) | 9″ Pumpkin Halloween Décor Cream | Orange Berry Stem | Light Up Skull (similar) | Candle: Chloe & Co Golden Moss

The Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY was born last week. I typically stick with the real deal when it comes to pumpkins. I just love real pumpkins. The colors. The textures. I legit cannot get enough…Ha! But, if you remember from last year, I had a little mishaps with the REAL pumpkin centerpiece. Although it was fucking gorgeous, it almost ruined my life.

Okay, I may be exaggerating a little bit.

It rotted out. I picked it up to move it and the whole pumpkin melted in my hands. All over my carpet + dining room table. The smell that came off that thing could probably kill some kind of small animal. It was horrific. Ha! I shared a photo of it below for old times sake.

{weekend notes}

SHOP: Sweater (on sale) | Denim (on sale) | Flats (on sale) | Sunglasses ($10)| Earrings

Good afternoon friends. We are on week 39 of 2019. Pretty wild, huh? That’s almost 39 weeks of Monday intentions. Some weeks they seem almost the same as the week prior. And some weeks they are loaded with fun + exciting things. Still fun to share either way.

We had a FUN weekend. Didn’t get much done on a productive level, but that’s okay. I’ll get caught up this week. We had fun with friends. Picked up some Harley & Bean gear. Watched Jenny get married. And hit the pumpkin patch. So, all in all – I can’t complain. Bay had her 3rd week of volleyball camp and it’s so cool to see her learning + growing.

Intentions for the Week:

  • lay off the booze for a hot one
  • make a Trader Joe’s Fall grocery list printable to share
  • hit my daily step goal
  • work on an Amazon round-up
  • finishing touches on our fall to-do’s
  • try some new air fryer recipes
  • wash all my reusable grocery bags
  • delete old photos from my phone
  • do something kind AF each day
  • decorate the front porch
  • share a new recipe on the blog

This week on xoxostacyb: New Target finds. Our Fall To-Do’s with all the things Fall. Can’t decide if I should share a salmon recipe or the WW turkey + carrot noodles. Hmmm! And hopefully get to my Amazon round-up!

Highlights for the week……..

SHOP: Top (30% off) | Denim (25% off) | Sunglasses ($11) | Necklace

Happy FRIDAY!! Cheers to the weekend! Cheers to you! We fucking made it! Barely…ha!

Weekend plans: Pizza + Wine tonight, because what else would one do on a Friday? Sleep in. Watch Jenny get hitched. Finish decorating our front porch. And probably go to be at 8pm. What’s on your weekend agenda?

For those asking:

Starbucks Cinderella Latte verdict…..

Not absolutely disgusting. Better than a PSL for sure. This secret menu item went viral this week, so obvi I had to try it out.

To order: ask for a PSL (hot, iced or blended) swap out half of the pumpkin spice pumps for white mocha ☕️

Today on the blog I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving from Old Navy. Have you been in there lately? I can’t leave without buying something

Everything is 30% off. NO code needed. I swear online prices are wayyy better than in-store. So, I always place my order for in-store pick up, to get the sale prices. And because, I’m cheap AF and don’t want to pay for shipping that take 15 days. lol.

I found this blog post I wrote a few years ago

{50 things I have my mother to thank for}

This weather has been giving me all the Fall feels. I’ve been wearing all my new sweaters + long sleeve tops. Decorating the house for the season. Buying anything + everything pumpkiny from Trader Joe’s. And pulling out some of my most fave recipes from the archives.

Some of them are so good and I almost forgot about them. I tend to try something New to make each week for the blog. I need to start busting out some of these oldies and throwing them into the rotation more often. Incase you’re new here. I’ve complied a few really, really good ones below for you!
