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!

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

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
