At the end of it all, do you know what I really want?

Wine. Pajamas. Pizza. In the exact order. What’s your Friday night plans? Staying in or headed out?

Some Friday’s I get a second wind, but tonight? Tonight is a night of rest at our house. When we asked Bay what she wanted to do this weekend, her response was: “Go to the Fortune Cookie Factory” And Cory made that shit happen, so we’re gearing up for a fun weekend in San Francisco.

Whatever you have planned, make it a good one friends!!!

Going to keep it short and sweet with a fun list of things I’m diggin this week……

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……..

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!

Intentions for the Week:

  • stay on track with Weight Watchers
  • watch my girls first volleyball game of the season
  • celebrate my Mom’s birthday
  • finish decorating for Fall
  • shoot some new outfits for the blog
  • purge all my Fall decor
  • make it to the gym, no matter what
  • actually start a mini reset…and not just talk about it
  • try a tortellini soup
  • plan a Napa day-date with Cory
  • watch Jenny get married
  • complement someone different everyday

This week on xoxostacyb: Old Navy Try-On. Fall home refresh. The Mississippi pot roast recipe you’ve all been asking for.

Highlights from the Weekend……

Happy Friday the 13th + Full Moon. You better bust out all your crystals and sage. Shit’s might get wild tonight! Ha!

I keep reading about the “Harvest Moon” tonight. The first full moon that’s been visible across the U.S. since 2000. They say it wont happen again till 2049. So make sure you check it out.

Weekend Plans: WE. HAVE. ABSOLUTELY. NOTHING! Which means I’ll probably jam pack it with all kinds of random shit!

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!

Monday! New start. New week. I somehow managed to make it to the gym at 5am this morning. Even after a long weekend in Vegas. Truth is, I haven’t made it to the gym on a Monday is about a month. Just like the saying goes “Never skip a Monday” that shit has some truth to it. I’m kicking today’s ass and I know I wouldn’t be if it hasn’t been for the sweat sesh! Going to try and make this a Monday habit!

Viva Las Vegas Baby! We pulled off a helluva surprise for Bay’s BIG 1-3! So much fun. But, man – there is no place like home. My bed never felt better than it did last night!

Intentions for the Week:

  • get my ass to the gym (everyday this week is my goal)
  • wine + planning with the Omega Nu “fun committee”
  • at home mani
  • celebrate my teenager one last time
  • get back to packing lunches the night before (such a time saver in the mornings)
  • clean out my purse + wallet (it’s straight up embarrassing)
  • try a new recipe
  • catch up on some much needed sleep

This week on xoxostacyb: celebrating another national day this week. I’ll be sharing a new recipe. Some sales. And maybe, hopefully my fern centerpiece DIY! Stay tuned!

Highlights from the Weekend…..

Somehow we (my mom, sister & I) pulled off the surprise of a lifetime. Back in December I pulled the trigger on 4 George Strait concert tickets. Then asked my mom + sis what they thought about taking Bay for her 13th Birthday. The concert was on her actual 13th birthday!

Friday, August 23rd at 6:30am. the morning of Bay’s 13th birthday, we woke her up with party hats and blowers.

She had 5 minutes to get up, get dressed, brush her teeth and catch our flight.

She was 100% surprised. And I was beginning to think she had an idea that something was up.

Thank you so much for all the sweet messages + texts + comments. Bay loved reading them all. She felt pretty special ❤️
