Reentry is no joke. After a week off from work + school for Spring Break, we are back at it today. Not going to lie, I’m strugglin hard. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee. And I’ve got an iced coffee in my near future. I walked into my office at 7:45 am this morning and instantly felt at home. There is something to be said about routine. Really, really missed mine. Although we had a fucking blast last week.
Intentions for the Week:
Get Timothy + Archie Spring Show ready
Eat healthy AF using my WW app
Drink a shit-ton of water (I don’t think I’ve had any since April 19th)
Start making my bed again (also haven’t made it since April 19th)
Clear out email inboxes (one had over 900 emails…FML)
Happy Tuesday! We’re living it up in Santa Cruz having the best time. Today we’re off for a day on the boardwalk. All the rollercoasters and corndogs we can handle lol. Before we’re off, I wanted to share some exciting news…..
Today – Sunday mention xoxostacyb at bella moda boutique and you’ll receive 10% off your purchase.
Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.
Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.
Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)
Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.
Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????
Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.
Intentions for the Week:
Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
Make a Spring Self Care list
Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
Share past Easter posts
Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
Take outfit photos for the blog
Write a post on Easter basket ideas
Plan out our day in the City
Drink a shit-ton of water
Hit my health goals for the week
This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.
One question I get asked all the time? What I use to take my photos and how I edit my photos. I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime…decided today is the day! Ha! Here are some tips + tricks that I’ve picked up from other bloggers along with lots of trial and error.
Before we get started……I strictly use my iPhone 8 Plus. I go back and forth from portrait mode to regular photo mode. Back in December, I purchased a preset and I’ve been using it ever since.
This week on the blog: Easter table setting. Spring To-Do’s. Easter #ootd’s.
Highlights from the weekend……
You’re never going to guess what Cory + I did Friday evening…
Symposium in Davis is legit. Cory took me for the first time a few years ago and I fell in love with this little hidden gem. Amazing Greek food. And that pizza right there was divine! Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger have dined at this place…..just a tid bit I thought you should know…lol.
Friiiii-dayyyyy! I can’t even wipe the smile off my face today. Just happy AF it’s the weekend. Got up early, early this morning and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Even decorated for Spring a little too. I LOVE walking in Friday evening to a clean house. Makes starting the weekend extra sweet! You guys, we have hardly any plans….AGAIN! I’m sleeping in tomorrow, that’s #1 on my list. I’d love to work on the patio, if Mother Nature cooperates. Hope you have a good one!
Tomorrow is the first official day of SPRING! I could cry….I’m that excited. Well, except there is rain in the forecast.
We’ve been all over the place today. Bay had an ortho appointment where they scheduled her braces removal. I cannot believe it’s been 2 years. And they also warned me that she’s going to look 10 years older than she already does. Noooo! She’s so excited and I’m so excited for her.
And I FINALLY got my car back today. I was driving a Dodge Journey for the last week. It’s wayyy newer then the ol Pilote. Has all the bells and whistles. And I was so excited to sit in the drivers seat of my 6 year old Honda.
I was also today years old when I learned that you can sign over a check to someone else. Where have I been? You just endorse it and anyone can deposit it? Doesn’t seem legit to me. I guess you learn something new everyday!
I had something else planned for today. Then I got a notification that my tunic, that I fell head over heels for, is on sale. 30% off! And it’s a newer arrival. So, this basically NEVER happens.
