Would you rather…..

Give up cocktails or coffee?

Tell me, I wanna know.

For me, this is a VERY hard one. But, I’m going with giving up cocktails…..I think?

Man, that’s a tough call. Coffee gives me life in the morning. Coffee is my boo-thang.

{summer dresses}

Dress (on sale) | Clogs (on sale) | Choker Sunglasses | Clutch (similar)

Dress season is upon us ladies. I’ve got you covered with dress options that wont break the bank. And will get you though wedding + shower + graduation + brunch season.

Remember my Seersucker dress from last week: {list of loves} It’s currently marked down from $90 to $23! Swear! And it’s such an easy to wear dress.

I scoured my favorite online stores for dresses that I would totally rock. Think J.Crew. Madewell. Nordstrom. Old Navy. American Eagle. Target. You name it. Not only dresses that I dig, but dresses that also have a decent price tag.

I broke them down by length. You’ll have to let me know if that’s helpful.

You can shop each item by clicking on the images below……

{target tuesday}

Leopard PJ Top | Shorts | Mug

You don’t go to Target because you need something. You go to Target and let Target tell you what you need.  Am I right?  I went in for toilet paper + mascara and left with new leopard 🐆 PJ’s and a mug ☕️😂 didn’t even get the mascara.

All the things I have on my list and all the things I don’t need 🤷🏼‍♀️

{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

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}

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!

{summer front porch + diy striped doormat}

Stay Awhile Sign | Large White Planter | Small White Planter | Wood Plant Stand | Chevron Rug

It’s Frriiiiidayyyy!! We made it. Longest short week everrrrr!

You guys, the worst thing happened last night.

I dropped and shattered my iPhone screen. I was unloading groceries and dropped it in my driveway. Face down. You know that feeling when you pick it up and the screen is fine and you kinda wanna do a cartwheel? Yeah, I didn’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling this time. Legit wanted to cry. It cracked so much that when I run my fingers across the screen, it feels like I could get a splinter.

It’s getting fixed now. I feel fucking naked. My phone, it has my to-do list in the notes section. I can’t text Bay. Can’t look at my MyFitnessPal to track my macros…and I really want a snack. Ha. My alarms? What if I forget to do something. No online banking. No random scrolling. No googling. No email. No Pandora. No clock. No Waze to figure out the fastest way to get someplace. So weird. So sad too. Being without my phone for 2 hours can make me feel like I cannot function. Anyway, on the bright side – it’s getting fixed. And all will be right in the world again. Maybe I should do one of those digital detox weekends? Nah, F that!

What I’m really here to share is my updated front porch. I gave it a little face lift.

Hosed her off. Pulled out some spray paint. New fresh plants + mulch. And I’m in LOVE! We live in a rental, so there is only so much I can do. I’m not trying to break the bank. This was a VERY budget friendly patio refresh. Because, let’s keep it real, I’d rather buy a new pair of Madewell jeans with that money…HA!

This summer weather makes me want to squeal. I get so frickin happy when it’s officially nice enough to open the windows + sliders. I just want to sit on the patio and sip my coffee….or wine. And the sunlight last wayyy past dinnertime. Ahhh…isn’t it fantastic?
