{weekend notes}

Tank (on sale) | Skirt | Heels | Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses

Just another manic Monday. I wish it was Sunday. Cause that’s my fun day! We had the most relaxing weekend. One that we really needed. When someone asked what I did over the weekend…..Umm, wine + sleep. Repeat. Ha! And are you even truly hungover if you don’t watch 5 hours of TV? I say NO! Let’s just say, I got caught up on 12 episodes of Beverly Hills Housewives…lol! And it was amazing.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Old Navy Try-On
  • Weight Watchers weigh-in
  • Master blueberry scones
  • Chat about my lemon obsession
  • Share cute summer tops under $25
  • Put the finishing touches on our summer bucket list
  • Maintenance appointments: get our pearly whites cleaned + get blonde AF
  • Summerland Whoop-Whoop!
  • Bike rides
  • Trader Joe’s burger throw-down

This week on xoxostacyb: Bramuda shorts….yep, I’m diggin them. Recipes I’m excited to try. Spillin the tea on new Trader Joe’s goodies. And our Summer Bucket List.

{chip-less chili cheese nachos}

Say that 5 times fast! Actually, I just said it out loud 5 times and it really wasn’t that hard.

Okay, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today. Cause mama’s got shit to do.

Every. Single. Time I’m trying to watch what I’m eating. Bay comes up with something she’s dying to try. The latest:

Wienerschnitzel chili cheese fries. Yes…like the worst thing on the planet. Ha. But kinda the best thing too.

Fun fact: I got kicked out of Faith Formation (aka CCD) for ditching to go to Wienerschnitzel. And I 100% got chili cheese fires. I mean, what else do you even order from there? Anyway, we thought we were being really sly. To make a long story short, we got caught. I think I was about the same age as Bay is now. I’ve already threatened her she’d loose Snap Chat if she ever tried to ditch CCD…lol. Trust me, she won’t even chance it. She lives for snap!

Anyway, we were driving home the other night and Bay mentioned that she saw a commercial for chili cheese fries and NEVER KNEW THEY HAD THEM AT WIENERSCHNITZEL.

All caps because I almost fell outta my seat. Say what? I kinda feel like a failed her. Everyone should experience chili cheese fries.

So, I took her to Wienerschnitzel and got her an order. Did you know you can now order them like 10 different ways? Shit has changed since 25 years ago when I was frequenting the establishment. Bay got her chili cheese fries fix.

I tucked my tail and went home. Raided the fridge and came up with my own damn chili cheese chip-less nachos. And let me tell you….

They did the trick.

Weight Watchers friendly AF too!

I made a the whole package of mini peppers and took them for lunch the next day.

{weekend notes}

Good morning! Happy June! It’s officially the last week of school. Which basically equals = shit show. So many things happening as we wrap up the school year.

I accidentally deleted my on going to-do list on my phone. Like it’s gone, gone. I checked my deleted and it’s not even there to restore. At first, I was really, really stressin. Like sweat stressing. After I realized there is nothing at all I can do about it….It was kind of reveling. I’m sure there will be something I forget to do, but it’s okay.

Intentions for the Week:

  • celebrate my girl Nicole’s Birthday
  • fill in my June calendar with ALL THE THINGS
  • hit the gym mon – fri
  • hang with my nephews
  • sit by the pool
  • go to bed at a decent hour (why do I wanna be a night owl lately?)
  • listen to Bay give her Treasurer speech
  • wash all the windows + sliders (it’s amazing what a difference it makes)

This week on xoxostacyb: Putting the finishing touches on my Father’s Day Gift Guide. Hoping to squeeze in a recipe. Tips on how to have a better Monday. And we’ll see what else I can come up with…lol!

{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?

{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!

So, I joined Weight Watchers! Some of you are into it. And some of you definitely are not. That’s totally fine. Since I’ve been getting a butt load of DM’s and questions, I’m going to share ALL THE THING Weight Watchers today. This is 100% my personal opinion. I am by NO means a health expert…lol. Just sharing what I know in hopes of answering some of your questions.

Backstory, I used Weight Watchers after Bailey was born – back in 2007. I lost over 25 lbs and became a lifetime member. Then…..I quit going.

My girlfriend Toni, who recently started Weight Watchers for the first time totally inspired me to go back. After hearing about her 18 lbs weight loss, I knew it was time to get my ass in gear. I recruited the OG’s, My Mom and Sister to join with me. Love you girls and thank you for all the support, recipe sharing, text messages! Let’s do this!

Does Weight Watchers really work?

Here we go…..I started Weight Watchers last Thursday, March 7th.

Today marks 1 week using the plan. Following it 100%. Some workouts + walking. But, mainly focusing on tracking my food. I did my weekly weigh in this morning and here are my results…….
