So, in true Holiday Whore fashion – I put together a big ol basket of goodies. All the things for a killer Galentine’s Day!
First I want to THANK YOU for a few things……
Today I published my 1,028th blog post. WOW!
I received my monthly Shop Style Collective check and it was my largest yet. 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.
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!
Life is short, BUY THE BAG! My very first white bag. And it’s a vibe, friends!
In VERY important news…..
Groundhog Day 2020: Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Early Spring. … The groundhog allegedly did not see his shadow, according to members of his “inner circle,” meaning there will be an early spring. According to legend, if he had seen his shadow it would have signified six more weeks of winter.
Now if that isn’t a highlight to the week, then I don’t know what is! #coldaf #bringonspring
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was equal parts of relaxing + fun! How about that football game at the JLO concert yesterday? I’ve never seen so much ass shakin in my life..ha!
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!
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.
Today was the day. The first day of school! The day some of us (myself) have been secretly praying for…lol! And some dreading. I decided next year we need to have a Woo-Hoo + Boo-Hoo party after drop off. Where we can celebrate or be bummed our kiddos are back in school.
You know, just at a bar preferably. Before everyone gets on with their day.
Bay’s last day first day at Lee Middle School. I was reminded of it, bright and early this morning. Holy shit!
Yes – I let her keep the baby blue acrylic nails. Even though I cringe every time I look at her hands. On one condition – she learns how to spell “remember” Ha!
We always take photos the night before. #momhack. Such a time saver in the morning on the first day! It’s almost like a trial run. What to wear. Does it need ironing. What hairdo. Makeup. All the things. It truly makes the morning of such a breeze.
I, myself, spent about 90% of my day scrolling though all the 1st day photos. I cannot believe how big everyone’s kids are. How grown and mature they all look. Including my girlfriends kids. We’ve had this tradition since pre-school. My girlfriend Sara and I met one year at Raley’s. Mainly because it’s always empty. Each year the group and photo have grown larger + larger. Makes my heart so happy! Thanks for organizing this year Alex! Love to see everyone dressed in their best ready to take on a new school year.
Fair hangovers are real. Anyone else in need of an extra day for sleep and detox? Ha! As always, such a fun Fair weekend. We didn’t make it out there as much as years past and I’m still exhausted!
I know I keep saying it but, just two days left of Summer before the school begins. Savor it friends. Enjoy every second of it. Because once school starts….everything starts. Extra curricular. Sports. Labor Day. Then the Holidays!
Intentions for the Week:
Final Summer party with friends
Hit my bedtime (I’ve become a night owl)
Have the acrylics removed from Bay’s nails (payback is a bitch Kissey)
All the self care the night before school
1 st Day of School
Focus on fit bit + water goals
Attend the Crush Ceremony at Matchbook Winery
Work on a Fall table setting
Celebrate my girl becoming a teenager. The BIG 13!
This week on the blog……Target Tuesday tomorrow. Did you see all the Fall new arrivals from Hearth & Hand? After many requests, I’ll be sharing the White Bean Caprese Salad recipe that I made over the weekend. I actually stole the recipe from my Mom. How about an American Eagle Try-on?
