Monday Funday? Can that be a thing? After a very relaxing weekend, I think I got my groove back? I think? I made it to the gym for the first time in 2 frickin weeks. So, that’s big plus. And to keep it real – working out is HUGE for my mental health, just saying. It sets the tone for my day. My week. My everything. So cheers to a new week, my friends!!

Only thing is – what is up with this weather? I want to bundle up in all the layers but it’s hot as hell.

I set a few simple intentions. Things got a little crazy last week so I need to get back on board + focused!

Intentions for the week:

  • Hydrate like a mo-fo (how can I drink wine like it’s my day job, but not water?)
  • Use the Weight Watchers App
  • Help Bay finalize her Halloween costume
  • Change up my armoire decor for Fall
  • Make an old recipe from the archives
  • Style a green utility jacket 4 ways
  • Go to the gym mom-fri (I skipped for two weeks) 😭
  • Keep my front porch mums alive. Anyone have tips?
  • Dinner with some of my fave gal pals
  • Dedicate a lunch break to my calendar/planner
  • Make healthy choices

What are your goals for the week?

I never got around to my Friday 5 post about my front porch. #life. But here she is. I kept it classic AF with orange pumpkins + mums.

Here’s a better look. Now if only I can keep the mums alive. What’s the trick? I never have any luck with them.

{our fall 90’s movie list}

Marble & Gold Tray | Skeleton Hand | Candy: Walmart

“You’re killin’ me, Smalls!” They don’t call the ’90s the golden era for nothing. Movie wise, we hands down, had the best classics. From comedies to dramas…..I mean, come on.

When I reminisce about the good ol days of Blockbuster Video + VCR’s my teen looks at me like I’m batshit crazy. So, I’m making it my personal goal to check some of these off during the cozy months.

I hope this list reminds you of your childhood, like it does mine. Milestones. Teenage moments. And just hanging out with the neighborhood kids around the T.V. Back when “screen time” wasn’t a thing!

Please let me know if I’ve left any out that really need to be here. Or better yet – tally up all the movies on my list that you’ve seen…most likely 25 times each!

Probably thinking about tacos?

This was actually an outtake…lol. It will never feel normal having your kid take your picture in public. Everyone stares. Everyone’s thinking, what in the actual fuck is going on here.

I’m yelling “make me super hot and super skinny!” Bay’s yelling, “mom, I can’t!”

Then “hurry up, we’re gonna be late” Ha! True story. That’s what’s really going on when these photos are being snapped for the ‘gram!

In other news….

Happy official sweater weather friends. Keeping it short + sweet today…because I’m in a funk, AGAIN!

Happy FRIDAY!! Cheers to the weekend! Cheers to you! We fucking made it! Barely…ha!

Weekend plans: Pizza + Wine tonight, because what else would one do on a Friday? Sleep in. Watch Jenny get hitched. Finish decorating our front porch. And probably go to be at 8pm. What’s on your weekend agenda?

For those asking:

Starbucks Cinderella Latte verdict…..

Not absolutely disgusting. Better than a PSL for sure. This secret menu item went viral this week, so obvi I had to try it out.

To order: ask for a PSL (hot, iced or blended) swap out half of the pumpkin spice pumps for white mocha ☕️

Today on the blog I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving from Old Navy. Have you been in there lately? I can’t leave without buying something

Everything is 30% off. NO code needed. I swear online prices are wayyy better than in-store. So, I always place my order for in-store pick up, to get the sale prices. And because, I’m cheap AF and don’t want to pay for shipping that take 15 days. lol.

Good morning!

How was everyone’s weekend? Hopefully very relaxing + full on sunshine. We kept it pretty low key and it was exactly what we were needing. After a busy few weeks, I was craving some stay-home time.

Intentions for the Week:

  • buy all the pumpkins at Trader Joe’s
  • hit my step goal
  • lunch date with my new planner/calendar
  • make a diy pumpkin centerpiece (that will last all season)
  • get my ass to the gym
  • start a mini reset
  • 10 pm bedtimes…no matter what
  • decorate the front porch for fall
  • edit photos in advance
  • drop off donations
  • make a garage sale pile
  • log all my food on the WW app

This week on xoxostacyb: I’ve got a new weeknight recipe. A one pot recipe. I’ll be sharing my little Fall home refresh. Announce the winner of my {g i v e a w a y}. Have you entered yet? And some Target goodies. Because Target is my jam at the moment.

Wine flies when you’re having fun 🍷🍷

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?

{how I make money blogging}

SHOP: Crochet Sweater | Black Denim | Clogs ($40) | Sunnies | Starbucks Tumbler

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!

You. Are. The. Best!

So here’s the tea sis…..

Friday!!! Set my alarm for the last time this week. Which makes me really, really happy. The only thing that could make it better? A big glass of chardonnay. Or a margarita. Ohhh, one of Martini Mama Liz’s gin martinis. Yep, any of those would work.

14 days and I’m gonna get white girl wasted…just saying!!!

I know today is Friday 5, but I’m not feelin it, so we’re going to chat about these shorts.
