SHOP: Puffer Jacket | Denim | Flats | Phone Case

The face you make, when you realize the puffer jacket you NEED in your life is on sale for $17! #sold! I really need to find a new hobby that doesn’t include my debit card + Target. Ha!

But, how fun would that be? Especially when they’re having a great sale!

Monday has arrived! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Really trying to find ways to make Monday’s a day I look forward to again. You see – I used to love Monday’s. The fresh start and all. Somewhere I lost that Monday love. So, I treated myself to a Starbucks this morning. Set out a fun outfit to wear. And I think it’s working. This is going to be my new Monday morning ritual. Something I can look forward too.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Make something with my hands (maybe a new recipe?)
  • Chill out on the caffeine
  • Spread a little kindness
  • Catch up on This is Us + A Million Little Things with Bay
  • Smile more
  • Treat myself to a face mask + new nail color

This week on xoxostacyb….4 ways to style a green utility jacket. Things you need from American Eagle. A new recipe. According to my stats, you guys are really into the recipes lately.

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!

SHOP: Sweater | Denim | Booties | Hat

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!
