{what I ate // weight watchers zero point day}

What I ate Wednesday. One full day of eating ZERO Weight Watchers Points. And I didn’t die…lol. Or starve for that matter. Planning is key, but it’s 100% doable. I’ve been promising this post for

Since my blog post: {weight watchers 1 week results} more than 15 of you clicked on my link and signed up for Weight Watchers. It makes my heart so, so happy! I know, for a fact, that when you follow this plan you will be 100% successful. I love all the DM’s and messages…so keep them coming. For example, I ran into my girlfriend Toni last weekend. She began her Weight Watchers journey back in January. Guess how much she’s lost in 4 months?

{weekend notes}

Hello Monday. Why did you have to arrive so quickly? Had a little too much Sunday Funday so I’m running in slow mo today. But, it was 100% worth it. Today marks day one of the I Heart Macros – Love your body challenge. I got up to “dude where’s my car” ha! So, I improvised and did the at home workout. Which totally kicked my ass. If you’re interested in the challenge, here’s more info: Love your body challenge I’ll be talking more and sharing more about this program as I dive more into it.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Learn all about Macros with I Heart Macros
  • Restyle our entryway
  • Visit Windmill Vineyards
  • No online shopping for the entire week (FML)
  • Try a new DIY for the blog
  • Share my new Italian Salad recipe
  • Delete photos from my phone (my camera roll is at 19,000…yikes)
  • Plan a weekend getaway with Cory
  • Hit my sleep goal (at least 7 hours)

This week on the blog: Target got me again, so let’s do a Target Tuesday. I’ll be sharing my new Italian salad recipe. I’ve been promising to share my day of zero point Weight Watchers food log. And a new DIY! It’s going to be a fun week on xoxo stacyb 🙂

{friday 5}

Sandals: Nordstrom // Free People | Denim

Happy Friday, Friends! I can’t stop saying “Happy Friday” I said it to every.single.person this morning at Nugget. At 6am. Even to the cashier at the gas station. To my co-workers right as I walked into the office. When I answer the phone. Ha! Guess I’m really ready and in need of the freakin weekend! I stayed up till past midnight cleaning the shit out of my house. You’d think I’d be exhausted? Nope, just happy it’s Friday apparently. You guys, today in my Great Grandma (we call her GG) 94th birthday. Ninety Four years young. I’m still in shock at what a complete bad ass she is.

Weekend plans: Whoop it up with GG tonight. Dutch + pedi + Ulta (I despise Ulta, just FYI) date with Bay tomorrow morning. Completing + turning in Bay’s 4-H record book. It’s godawful…..no joke. Wine sippin with some of my fave gals. Sleeping in. Extra coffee in my jams. Cooking. Meal prepping. Just a few other things I’m super looking forward to.

{portobello turkey burgers}

Hi friends! It’s Tuesday and I’ve still got my groove. And that shit’s been gone for a long time. Beginning to think that starting my Monday off right just makes a helluva difference. If you’re not feeling it, remember you don’t have to wait till Monday. Like I always do. You can start fresh tomorrow! Just saying!

This Spring weather has me craving BBQ everything. Who else is ready to fire up the barbie?

Minus the rain in the forecast. It’s not really going to rain is it? I’ve got plans. Outdoor plans. Get it together Mother Nature!

{spring break recap}

dress: bella moda boutique | bag | earrings | sandals

Reentry is no joke. After a week off from work + school for Spring Break, we are back at it today. Not going to lie, I’m strugglin hard. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee. And I’ve got an iced coffee in my near future. I walked into my office at 7:45 am this morning and instantly felt at home. There is something to be said about routine. Really, really missed mine. Although we had a fucking blast last week.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Get Timothy + Archie Spring Show ready
  • Eat healthy AF using my WW app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water (I don’t think I’ve had any since April 19th)
  • Start making my bed again (also haven’t made it since April 19th)
  • Clear out email inboxes (one had over 900 emails…FML)
  • Make my favorite {thai coconut curry shrimp}
  • Try a DIY cropped sweatshirt
  • Target Tuesday…share all the things Target
  • Come up with a yummy, yet healthy dessert for my sweet tooth

This week on the blog: What I ate (my zero point food diary). Target Tuesday. Things I’m diggin in April.

Highlights from the Week…..

Kicked off Good Friday with Martini Mama Liz’s famous martinis. Needless to say, we got tips!

Sweater Tank ($12)| Denim

Saturday we celebrated Timothy Easter. GG and almost all of her great-grand kids.

My Easter salad with the edible flowers. Although, I don’t recommend eating them. GG said they didn’t taste all the great…lol. This is actually my {asparagus salad}

Someone was hoping BIG time they’d find the Golden Egg….and she did!!

Bay’s off the shoulder top: J.Crew Factory

The Easter Bunny left Bay some treats

Monday morning we found ourselves in Santa Cruz. I found the perfect tank for the occasion.

{egg roll bowls}

Happy Spring Break! We’re off to the beach for some vitamin Sea. Much needed sand between our toes + sunshine on our shoulders. The thought of not setting a 4:30 am alarm all damn week has be straight up giddy! Ha!

I did get some time last week to pre-blog some content. And this one was highly requested, so here ya go!

I have something to admit….

I didn’t make a real dinner in over 2 weeks. We’ve been so busy, that I just haven’t made the time. Nugget’s salad bar chicken has become a staple in my diet…lol. Bay’s been living on taquitos + corn dogs. And let me tell you, she hasn’t complained once. But, I feel so much better when I make a healthy dinner. And we sit around the table. Say our daily peeks + pits.

I missed it. So last week, I finally made time to cook. We had our first al fresco dinner.

The best part?

I made a zero weight watchers point meal. And we both LOVED it. Added rice to Bay’s because clearly she can use all the carbs.

It’s uber healthy. Uber easy. I’m talking like 10 minutes max. One pan.

Wham bam thank you ma’am!

{how to make a grazing board}

Serving Platter | Bunny Bowl 

The grazing board. AKA Charcuterie Platter. Incase you haven’t noticed, they’re kinda my thang. Today I’m sharing my Easter candy board along with two other boards I created. A Char-Kid-Erie Board and an Adult cheese board. But this Easter board just might be one of my faves so far. All the things kids love….which keep their grubby little fingers of the fancy cheese (which we all know they don’t even like anyway) lol!

Scroll down and I’ve shared each item that I used on this Easter Board. You can add to your Target order and pick-up within 1 hour. All the goodies (minus the platter + bunny bowl) rang in under $10.

{easter round-up}

Bunny Cookie Cutter | Floral Placemat | Milk Glass Dish

How adorable are these little bunny butt cookies? Bay helped me make them and I LOVE how they turned out. So simple too. We used a sugar cookie package to make these. Because, sometimes….we just don’t have time to whip out the mixer and make a hot mess. lol.

All you need is your fave sugar cookie recipe. Or a packaged mix. A bunny cookie cutter. I found this one on Amazon after searching all the stores in town (with NO luck) and Amzon delivered in 1 day. Well done Amazon, well done. And a cute dab of frosting for a cotton tail.

This is a great cookie to make with little ones. You can’t mess it up. And they take no time at all. Nothing gets you into the Holiday spirit like a cookie baking day anyway.
