TGIF = Thank Goodness It’s Fall! Cute, huh? Would be better if it were Friday, just saying!

It’s no secret that I LOVE decking out my dining room table. Typically, it’s the first piece I decorate for the Holidays or seasons. Then I gradually work my way from top to bottom of the house. Not leaving anything untouched. It’s just the Holiday Whore in me!

I thought I finished the house for Fall + Halloween. Then, I accidentally hacked into my Sisters Amazon account and primed a shit ton of paper bats. NO clue where they are going to go, but I promise you – It’s gonna be bat-shit fun. Ha!

{halloween snack mix}

Halloween is 23 days away. Bay just decided today that she wants to be a bumble bee. So now I frantically try to find her the perfect bumble bee costume….that she actually likes. Say a little prayer for me, K?

And you know by now that I’m a complete Holiday Whore…ha! Sounds so bad. lol. Any excuse to make something fun + festive. I’m here for it. Pumpkin shaped everything. Ghosts + spiders. I’m on it!

Some good ones from the archives:

  • Remember the {pumpkin donut holes} They are not only crazy easy, they’re crazy good!
  • The {mini pumpkin pies} I’ve been making for years. They are the perfect individual sized dessert for those of us (my hand is raised) that have absolutely NO control when it comes to pumpkin pie.
  • {pumpkin snickerdoodles} a spin on GG’s (my grandmother) classic cookie.
  • Back in 2016, I shared {pumpkin muffins} and I need to put these on my to-make list to re photograph them!
  • Last years I busted out the {spider cupcakes} for our annual trick-or-treating night at the Nelson’s
  • And last but not least, {pumpkin spice creamer} inspired by my girlfriend Justine!

This year, I’d like to introduce you to a dangerously delicious snack mix.

The Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY was born last week. I typically stick with the real deal when it comes to pumpkins. I just love real pumpkins. The colors. The textures. I legit cannot get enough…Ha! But, if you remember from last year, I had a little mishaps with the REAL pumpkin centerpiece. Although it was fucking gorgeous, it almost ruined my life.

Okay, I may be exaggerating a little bit.

It rotted out. I picked it up to move it and the whole pumpkin melted in my hands. All over my carpet + dining room table. The smell that came off that thing could probably kill some kind of small animal. It was horrific. Ha! I shared a photo of it below for old times sake.

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!

Highlights for the week……..

{weekend notes}

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
  • actually start a mini reset…and not just talk about it
  • try a tortellini soup
  • plan a Napa day-date with Cory
  • watch Jenny get married
  • complement someone different everyday

This week on xoxostacyb: Old Navy Try-On. Fall home refresh. The Mississippi pot roast recipe you’ve all been asking for.

Highlights from the Weekend……

{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!
