{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.

Wonder if there is a margarita somewhere out there thinking about me too? Anyone else counting down till happy hour? Have the happiest Friday and great weekend, my friends!

I’m beginning to think I should change my blog name to xoxo target! Ha! Here comes another Target post.

You guys, I bought long shorts. Not like Mom shorts. Which I consider 4″ inseam. These are the lonnggg to my knees, shorts. They are back! Wasn’t sure it would be my thang, but turns out….I’m kinda diggin em. We’ll chat more about that next week.

So, what prompted annnnother Target post, I went in to pick up my long shorts order. Saw a sign that said “select tops” BOGO (buy one get one) 50% off. It’s select AF, but I was able to find some cute shit.

I was planning on just doing a quick dressing room try-on……

{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

Friiiii-dayyyyy! I can’t even wipe the smile off my face today. Just happy AF it’s the weekend. Got up early, early this morning and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Even decorated for Spring a little too. I LOVE walking in Friday evening to a clean house. Makes starting the weekend extra sweet! You guys, we have hardly any plans….AGAIN! I’m sleeping in tomorrow, that’s #1 on my list. I’d love to work on the patio, if Mother Nature cooperates. Hope you have a good one!

Wasn’t it such a perfect weekend? Hey Mother Nature, keep up the good work! We rested. We relaxed. We enjoyed friends + family. And we had corned beef and cabbage. I gotta say, it was a good one.

But, hot damn…I woke up on the wrong side this morning. I’ve been grumpy AF and I can’t blame it on staying up too late or a hangover…Ha! Tomorrow will be a better day though, I’m sure of it!

I loved seeing everyone making xoxostacyb recipes over the weekend. Makes my whole day. And all the Weight Watchers questions and newbies. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions….I got your back. And keep posting food pics. Love all the fun ideas!

  • Finish our Spring To-Do’s list
  • Work on Easter Basket ideas

There is no truer statement. Ha! What’s better than strolling the aisles of Target with a Starbucks in hand….all alone? Not much. Welllll, maybe a big ass glass of chardonnay. Bogle chardonnay to be exact.

I may be having chardonnay withdraws peeps. Embarrassing to admit, but I’ve actually had a dream about wine. I was pouring it and the sound made me smile so fucking hard it hurt. Think I even woke up smiling.

Since wine is off limits till April 18th, let’s chat about ALL THE THINGS Target. The next best thing!

Target is rolling out Spring. Spring clothing. Decor. Seasonal items. It kills me every time I walk in those double sliding doors. I have to repeat, I’m ONLY her for toilet paper and La Croix. Ha! It never works though…..

Okay so here are some items I’ve purchased. Some I have on my wish list. And some that I’ve got my eye one at the moment.

{friday 5}

Friiiidaaayyyyy! 11 days left till SPRING! (I just googled it) Goodbye Winter. Gimme all the sunshine. I woke up early AF, like always. I made the decision to skip the gym and clean my house for 2 hours. And I feel really fucking happy about that decision. There’s something to be said about starting your day with a workout, trust me, I get it. But, leaving for work on a Friday morning with a clean AF house. It’s pretty close up there too. I did a little shimmy as I walked out the door. Ha!

Weekend plans: zip. zlich. nada. Which makes me slightly anxious. Being sober and all. What will I do all day? Anyway, have a great weekend! Do all the things. Have a drink or two for me, k?

Before you get your weekend started, I’ve got 5 things on my mind…….
