{wanderlust // where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been}

You guys, I stumbled on a Cup of Joe blog post titled: Whatโ€™s The Most Beautiful Place Youโ€™ve Ever Seen?

I don’t want to admit how much time of my day I spent reading the comments on this post. It’s hands down one of the most dreamy threads I’ve ever been stuck on. Day dreaming. Wanderlust. All the new places I MUST go and MUST see. They way people describe these destinations is unreal.

If you have a lot of time to kill – Read it here: Comment Section

It got me thinking…..

Where is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been?

It’s a toss up. Other than Mexico, I have never left the country. Sad, right? But I have seen some places right here in the US that blew my damn mind.

{weekend notes}

I left my heart in San Francisco ๐ŸŽถ
A day in the Bay with my Baes โค๏ธ

Ocean Beach. Sutro Baths. Union Square. Chinatown and the Marina. We hit all our favorite spots in the city. It was a fun weekend.

Somehow I woke up pumped to start the week. Hereโ€™s to making a new routine.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Finalize Holiday Cards (last year I didn’t send any out)
  • Figure out the new Weight Watchers plans
  • Try a new air fryer recipe
  • Deck the halls
  • Have Bay Bake something fun + festive for the blog
  • Pick up everything for my Christmas Table (velvet ribbon is hard to find)
  • Grab a coffee and walk the arboretum on a lunch break
  • Delete old photos from my phone
  • Find a fun Christmas pillow for my bed (I’m decorating my room too…lol)

This week on the blog: I’ll be sharing some sale finds. Dedicating a whole post to Bay’s new GreeLight debit card, because it’s that good. I have an Old Navy Try-On, because I keep popping in and finding new + cute things. I have a green jacket styled 4 ways that will be coming too!

Highlights from the weekend…..

{friday favorites}

SHOP: Collarless Sweater-Blazer (size down) | Leopard Cami | Denim | Booties | Necklace | Sunglasses

At the end of it all, do you know what I really want?

Wine. Pajamas. Pizza. In the exact order. Whatโ€™s your Friday night plans? Staying in or headed out?

Some Friday’s I get a second wind, but tonight? Tonight is a night of rest at our house. When we asked Bay what she wanted to do this weekend, her response was: “Go to the Fortune Cookie Factory” And Cory made that shit happen, so we’re gearing up for a fun weekend in San Francisco.

Whatever you have planned, make it a good one friends!!!

Going to keep it short and sweet with a fun list of things Iโ€™m diggin this weekโ€ฆโ€ฆ

{weekend notes}

Monday, Monday, Monday! Why did you have to come so soon? We decided to spend Sunday at the beach, since it was 40 degrees cooler on the coast than home. It was THE most relaxing day ever. Which means, we got home pretty late. Which means Monday happened wayyyy too fast. Which means I’m running on slowwwww today. Hope you all had a great couple of days. The summer days dwindling down and I want to enjoy every last minute till school starts. And life gets cray AF!

BIG thank you to everyone that messaged me to let me know my website had been hacked. I reached out to WordPress and it was taken care of within minutes. Thanks for lookin out homies!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Order Bay’s pictures (so many to choose from, it’s so hard)
  • Get my Fair Hair (it’s totally a thang..lol)
  • Spending freeze for the week
  • Plan a weekend hike
  • Pick up flowers and plants for the house
  • Share an Old Navy Try-On
  • Get caught up on laundry..I’m so behind
  • Indulge in a night of ALL THE THINGS self-care
  • Lunch date at the Davis Arboretum
  • Dinner with girlfriends

This week on xoxostacyb: Trader Joe’s haul. ALL THE THINGS TJ’s that we buy over and over again. Was supposed to share last week and never got around to it. Bay Bakes or a new recipe…still undecided. And an Old Navy post with some cute new arrivals.

Highlights from the weekend……
