It’s almost that time. I can smell it. I can feel it. Fall is officially here on September 23rd. Summer is my boo, but I think Fall just might possibly be my #1! Here are some ways that I welcomed Fall to our home. Easy things you can do without spending a ton of money. Just simple touches that make a BIG difference.

{g i v e a w a y}

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!

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Short weeks are the goddamn death of me. I just can’t get my shit together. But, I’ve got my eye on the prize……Friday is gonna be here before we know it! Whoop!

I did just spend about an hour updating my calendar and oh dang. It’s about to get cray. Oh – Bay made the Lee Middle School 8th grade volleyball team. So excited for her. Which is part of the oh dang part when I updated my calendar. Plus Faith Formation starts. Omega Nu began last night and 4-H is back in effect on Monday. I say this every September, it’s the busiest + most expensive time of the year.

So, I went to Trader Joe’s + Target on my lunch break to get my mind off my calendar. Ha! Totally makes since right?

You guys, Target is HOT. I mean, like better than ever. So fucking dangerous.

The seasonal section is ALL THE THINGS. Then I hit the Women’s clothing section and went crazy!

HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!

Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie? I have a feeling The Art Of Racing In The Rain will make me cry my damn eyes out. And fingers crossed….make it to the new plant shop, Propagate Sac. What’s on your agenda for the Weekend?

{gift guide: father’s day}

Father’s Day is right around the corner. I’m talking 10 days ladies. I swear, Father’s Day sneaks up on me every year. And I think we can all agree…..Men are either the easiest to buy for or the very hardest? Am I right? Like, there is NO in between. So, we better hop to it!

Sometimes we overthink things. Don’t stress. It’s not all about the fancy gifts. Sometimes it’s just the thought of planning some quality time. A little extra effort. Especially when it comes from the kiddos. I’m sharing some ideas on how to make Father’s Day extra special.

Plan one of his favorite activities //

Whether you go out to his fave brunch or dinner spot. Maybe the golf course or Top Golf to hit some golf balls. The lake for a day on the water. The local brewery for some beers. Does he like going to the movies? Grab all his top candy + snacks and head to the show. Or the store he loves to shop at. Whatever it is – makes reservations and arrangements ahead of time. That way you can just go and have fun!

Plan a BBQ or brunch //

Pick his number one meal. Breakfast. Brunch. BBQ. Whatever it is….grocery shop and have it all prepped. Have the kids set the table. How cute are they necktie napkins? Super easy to do. I’ll share the DIY below. These menus are the perfect touch. They are customizable do you can add anything you’d like.

Square Dish Set (on sale) | Gold Flatware | Linen Napkins | Table Runner (only $7) | Stainless Steel Vase: Serendipity

Click here: Necktie Napkin Fold DIY // Free Printable Menu

A fun gift //

Big or small. Something he’d never buy for himself. Or maybe something you know he could use. Have the kids wrap it up with the Sunday newspaper. Make handmade cards. I promise whatever is in the box will put a smile on his face.

I rounded up a bunch of tried + true great items that I think any dad would LOVE.

{weekend notes}

Well hello to the Monday-ist Tuesday there ever was!

Question: If you could drop everything today, and travel anywhere in the world…..where would you go?

Mine will forever be Italy. I love experiencing new places. Near or far! Taking photos. Walking around. Currently suffering from Major Wanderlust, can you tell? But, sitting at this beach did the trick this weekend.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Work on our Summer Bucket List
  • Dedicate an evening to all our fave self care
  • Plan out Bay’s summer (babysitting + camps + vacay’s)
  • Make some bomb.com dinner’s
  • Finish Girl, Stop Apologizing (such a great book)
  • American Eagle Try-On…they’ve got some cute shit!!!
  • Finishing touches on the front porch
  • Father’s Day gift guide for all the dudes in our lives
  • Count my Macros + log everything
  • Chill Out!

This week on xoxostacyb: You got my {Italian Salad} yesterday, and I truly apologize that it posted without the actual recipe yesterday. On my end it looked as though everything was just so, but I used a “page break” instead of a “read more” option. Which cut off the ingredients + directions. It’s corrected now! Other posts coming this week….my front porch refresh. Some fun dresses that wont break the bank. And maybe even a salmon recipe.

Highlights from the long weekend…..

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on our way to Tahoe Friday. It was the largest I’ve ever seen it in my years of driving to the cabin.

{target tuesday}

Stay Awhile Sign | Floral Print Maxi Dress

Hi friends! Today is all about our favorite store, Target! Target Tuesday, that is. I went in for 2 things last week. Just two things….and walked out with this dress and sign. Damn you, Target! I’m working on our tiny little entryway, stay tuned. And this dress, I’ll have it up sometime this week. Along with fun summer dresses on the cheap!

The Hearth & Hand with Magnolia section just got a shit-ton of new arrivals. Scroll down for my faves. Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, I’ve linked some cute tanks, tabletop items and door mats. Which would all work for 4th of July too! We’ll be in Lake Tahoe, so tanks will not be needed this year…lol. Speaking of tank tops, Target has a select section of tanks + tee’s that are currently marked down to $5! Like this one I’m wearing. And remember that leopard tank from last month? It’s only $5 too! Some basic crew neck tee’s and v-necks are also included! It’s a great time to pick up some basics for the warmer months…if we ever get them!

Now get a Target trip on your schedule. Or better yet, add that shit to your drive-up order and save yourself some time. Have you tried the drive-up service yet? It’s legit a lifesaver!
