Good morning! And happy Monday. I haven’t typed those words in a while. Truth is, I can’t remember the last time I woke up feelin it on a Monday….till today. I forced myself to the gym at 5am. And let me tell you, the struggle was real. The devil in my head had every single excuse not to go, but somehow I managed to get up and out the door. It’s amazing how great your day starts after a sweat sesh.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating all the special women in your lives.
Intentions for the Week:
Bay’s ortho appointment. Her braces come off this week!!!
Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.
Intentions for the Week:
Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
Make a Spring Self Care list
Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
Share past Easter posts
Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
Take outfit photos for the blog
Write a post on Easter basket ideas
Plan out our day in the City
Drink a shit-ton of water
Hit my health goals for the week
This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.
Friday 5. I mean Saturday 5. I tried to get this post up all day and kept getting distracted. Better late than never. We’re off to the beach for our Annual Stinson Beach trip. The weather forecast is making me crazy excited. Stay tuned for photo overload! Whatever you do, make it a good one!!
Monday! When you don’t whoop it up on the weekend, Monday’s don’t suck quite as bad. Not going to lie, yesterday I straight up struggled. Kept trying to stay busy so I didn’t think about pouring a glass of wine or opening a beer..lol. Enjoy this sunshine and make today a good one!!
Intentions for the Week:
Make a fun Springy flower arrangement
Watch my nephews play baseball
Tell you guys more about Weight Watchers (I’ve been getting lots of questions)
Friiiidaaayyyyy! 11 days left till SPRING! (I just googled it) Goodbye Winter. Gimme all the sunshine. I woke up early AF, like always. I made the decision to skip the gym and clean my house for 2 hours. And I feel really fucking happy about that decision. There’s something to be said about starting your day with a workout, trust me, I get it. But, leaving for work on a Friday morning with a clean AF house. It’s pretty close up there too. I did a little shimmy as I walked out the door. Ha!
Weekend plans: zip. zlich. nada. Which makes me slightly anxious. Being sober and all. What will I do all day? Anyway, have a great weekend! Do all the things. Have a drink or two for me, k?
Before you get your weekend started, I’ve got 5 things on my mind…….
I’m a grande pike (black) in a venti cup. Sounds kinda boring, huh? It truly is what I ALWAYS order and enjoy. But, I want to try something fun. Something new to look forward to on Friday coffee dates. Not too sweet though. Any recommendations?
Hope you have a great weekend. We don’t have many plans, and I’d like to keep it that way. Craving a low-key weekend. Extra cups of coffee in my Pj’s kinda weekend, ya feel me?
It’s Friday and I’ve got 5 things on my mind……
ONE – March //
Little things I’m looking forward to this month…..
Happy President’s Day…..coming from the only person on earth that is working today. Lol! According to Instagram story polls, there are about 4 of us total. I cant bitch too much, since I did take Friday off for a long weekend in Tahoe. Cold very cold and snowy Tahoe. Hope your Monday is off to a great start. It’s going to be a good week! I can just feel it!
Intentions for the week:
insta-story fried rice recipe
drink more water (I’ve been really bad)

Highlights from the weekend….
Thursday evening we ventured over the hill and through the snow to South Lake Tahoe.
Hey Monday! Anyone else think the Monday after Super Bowl should be a holiday? Because, hot damn, I’m tired. And I was in bed by 8pm. Technically I didn’t really even watch the Super Bowl. Really, I was just there for the food + booze + commercials. I bought a shit-ton of pool squares and didn’t win a dime. Typical. Our weekend was everything I’d hoped it would be. Chill AF. But, I still accomplished all the things too.
This week on the blog: Greek Salad over hummus. Abercrombie try-on. Bay Bakes. And we’ll see what else I can come up with!
Highlights from the weekend……
We started the weekend off with face mask night. Minus Kissey (she was sick) so we’ll have to do it again soon. My Mom had never done a face mask before so we treated her. I tried to get her to let me shave her lips too, but it was a no go. Maybe next time.
Hey girl hey! It’s Friday! I died when I woke up and looked at yesterday’s blog stats. Over 260 clicks from Facebook alone. Lot’s of WTF messages. Many of you guessed arms. And no Alex, I did not shave my Brittany…this time. Thanks for reading. And if you do shave your lips….let me know what you think. I guarantee you’ll be hooked. I tried to convince my mom to let me do hers last night…and she wasn’t having it.
Weekend plans: kickin’ it hard. We have a plan free weekend. Waiting on that storm to hit. Sleeping in. Cooking. Extra cups of French press coffee. Working on Bay’s closet. You guys, she keeps growing. That means NOTHING fits, again. I’m sure Bay will work her magic and get me to take her somewhere? Who knows. And Super Bowl Sunday. Anyone else NOT watching football this weekend? Half time show and I’m good!
If you want to impress your family or homies with a dinner they’ll be talking about….keep reading!!
2019 is officially right around the damn corner. 4 days and counting 🎊
Did you know that fish is believed to be a “lucky” food to eat on New Year’s Eve? Fish scales resemble coins. And fish swim in schools. Which invoke the idea of abundance.
So, if you too, are banking on 2019 being your year of health + wealth…I suggest you eat a shit-ton of seafood on December 31st, like myself.
Cory whipped up a cioppino the other night (I was his trusty sous chef) and it knocked our socks off. It’s a little hoity-toity for a weeknight dinner. So save this one for a weekend where you’ve got a table full of your favorite peeps ❤️
Cioppino is a seafood stew originating from the good ol City by The Bay, San Francisco. It’s an Italian-American dish using a sauce consisting of tomatoes + wine + loads of spices.
Served along side warm crusty bread for sopping up all the delicious broth.
Although cioppino is impressive in appearance, it’s a fairly simple recipe to execute.
Pour yourself a big glass of wine. Pull out the biggest stock pot you own. And get to making THE best pot of fisherman’s stew.
