Labor Day Weekend = Last hurrah of Summer! Which means, time to go all out and make it a damn good one! I hope you plan to make the most of it. Enjoy family + friends. All the seasonal food + delicious cocktails. And enjoy the hell out of this last long summer weekend!
Weekend plans: I’m having a house full of teenagers tonight. Then we are hitting the road for Tahoe bright and early in the morning. Final, Final beach weekend. The only thing in the agenda – sit on Pope Beach. With a beer in hand most likely, let’s keep it real. And relax to the max!
Pre-Drunk! Ha! How many trips to the county fair is too many? Asking for a friend!!
Before I get keg beer tips – I wanted to share 5 things I’m loving this week! Including these $10 shades that I can’t stop rockin. And my top. It’s $23! I found a new candle that smells like Fall and it’s on sale. And for all the Mama’s out there – Free Printable 1st day of School signs for each grade! Cheers to kegs beer and 105 degrees friends!
Weekend plans: We’re hitting up the fair for Demolition Derby + tacos tonight. Again! Ha! Bay + I are volunteering Saturday morning – prepping the fair tacos, since we love them so much! Pool time. Hoping to make a trip to Patio 29 in Winters? Looks like a fun spot. Hitting a Birthday party. And a quick volunteer shit at the fair for out 4-H club. And enjoying our last weekend to the very fullest before school starts Wednesday! Stay cool peeps – It’s brutal out there!
Surprise, Surprise! A whole post dedicated to leopard print. I feel like leopard print has always been a major trend for years. But, it’s real, real BIG at the moment. You can find a little leopard something at basically any retailer. From shoes to PJ’s. Scrunchies – yep, scrunchies are another major thang. Especially for the tween + teens! That headband though. You know I’m feeling the headbands! Belts are perfect if you’re easing your way into the print. You know I love that leopard skirt and it’s on SUPER sale. Bundling up an outfit with a scarf or topping with that amazing pullover! To the gym or to the beach. I found something in just about every category!
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?
Why did the weekend fly by so fast? Spent Sunday Funday wine tasting in Clarksburg. We #chardsohard at Bogle Winery. Cory even joined the wine club so cheers to more trips in the future. We had a very chill weekend and even more chill week ahead. Trying to really embrace the final weeks of summer.
Intentions for the Week:
Soak up all my time with Bay before school starts
Make zero point meatballs
Kick my Mom’s ass at weigh-in this week
Take extra good care of myself
Decide on a 2020 planner
Actually take a hike on the weekend (not just talk about it…lol)
Breakup with sugar (added sugar) for 10-days (bye chardonnay)
Pink hair, don’t care?
Give out some random acts of kindness….the whole World needs it!
This week on xoxostacyb: Not making any promises lol, but I’m hoping to get up Target Tuesday. New Trader Joe’s items we’re loving. And finally my Old Navy Try-on. Maybe, just maybe Friday 5 too?
After being gone the last few weekends, I was looking forward to a weekend at home. As Bay used to call weekends “stay at home days!” It was really, really nice to do NOTHING! Like, nothing at all. We slept in. Drank lots of coffee in PJ’s. Sat by the pool both Saturday and Sunday. Had some really good dinners. And straight up kicked it.
After lots of resting over the last couple of days, I woke up this morning ready to kick Monday’s ass….kinda. Ha! Got my steps. Working on my water in-take as I type. Have a great day friends!
Needless to say, today’s post is going to be short + sweet!
Loose 1 1/2 lbs at Weight Watchers weigh-in (I’ve got money riding on it)
Create a new centerpiece. Maybe using a fern?
Track everything: steps + food + water
Stock-up on Leaves candles (so sad the Davis Bath & Body closed)
This week on xoxostacyb: sharing a zero weight watchers point taco Tuesday recipe. Bay Baked Reese’s S’more dip and it was divine. Hoping to get that recipe up too. I did a closet clean-out. Still have more to do….so we’ll chat about that at some point too. And last but not least – Trader Joe’s. We tried a bunch of new products, so we’ll be spillin the tea on what we think!
Thirsty Thursday got the best of me. I’ll blame it on my Mom! We went to see The Lion King. Made a detour at Nugget after the movie for a bottle of wine. Found out they are having a sale on Bogle (my fave) $6.99 a bottle. So, we ended up getting 3. And a loaf of bread and cheese. Dinner!
Currently surviving on mass amounts of coffee, Lumify drops(THE best), kids chew-able Tylenol and my dark sunnies…ha! Seriously worth it. Sometimes you gotta get a little tips!
So, this week alone, I’ve had 5 people ask me about my blog. Not really sure why I post clothes. And why I always say “link in bio”. And “you make money?” Honestly, it never crossed my mind that everyone and their mothers didn’t already know what I was up too.
I’m spillin the tea on what I do . How I do it. And Yes, I do make money. Since it’s such a HOT topic. And it’s no secret, so I’m laying it all out.
Before I dive in, I want to THANK you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you to those that shop from my blog, facebook or instagram. I hope you know how much I appreciate when you take the time to shop through my links. I work really hard to find the best sales and deals. To make it convenient for you! Truly, I enjoy it. And your continued support makes it that much more fun!
The days are long but the years are short. I get it. But, so is the summer. Sometimes waiting for the weekends to do all the things summer is just straight up torture. Saturday’s + Sunday’s are great and all, don’t get me wrong. But, why not have just a little more fun on the weekdays too?
By the way…..
There are only like 35 days left of summer before school starts.
45 days till Fall.
and brace yourself…..
160 days till Christmas!
Here are 5 simple things that I, for one, would normally reserve for the weekend. I’ve decided to switch it up and make my weekday vibes a little brighter and really take in the summer days….
