I rounded up a shit-ton of affordable dresses.

{weekend notes}

Wow, September is HERE! August was literally a blink of an eye. I’m 100% ready for Fall to begin. I think the excitement of each Season change get’s me so eager for what’s to come. September brings structure and everything falls back into place. Don’t get me wrong, I live for Summer and all it entails, but I’m craving the routine of our new September schedule.

We spent the long weekend at our family cabin in Tahoe. Our final, final beach weekend for the summer. Our last summer hurrah! And man – it was all that. We sat at the beach on Sunday for almost 6 hours and it was pure heaven!

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed and not really ready to take this Monday-est Tuesday by the horns. But, here we go!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Order a 2020 calendar
  • Give myself a mani + pedi…I’m thinking RED!
  • Gather everything for a Fall inspired GIVEAWAY
  • Make a Mississippi Pot Roast (even thought it’s hot as hell)
  • Track all my food on the Weight Watchers App
  • Finalize my Fall front porch
  • Clean out the fridge
  • Continue Intermittent fasting
  • Plan a fun date night
  • 4-H enrollment

This week on xoxostacyb: new Target finds. Pull out all the things Fall from the archives. And a Fall home refresh.

Highlights from the weekend……

Skirt | Tank | Heels

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.

Wasn’t it such a perfect weekend? Hey Mother Nature, keep up the good work! We rested. We relaxed. We enjoyed friends + family. And we had corned beef and cabbage. I gotta say, it was a good one.

But, hot damn…I woke up on the wrong side this morning. I’ve been grumpy AF and I can’t blame it on staying up too late or a hangover…Ha! Tomorrow will be a better day though, I’m sure of it!

I loved seeing everyone making xoxostacyb recipes over the weekend. Makes my whole day. And all the Weight Watchers questions and newbies. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions….I got your back. And keep posting food pics. Love all the fun ideas!

{friday 5}

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…….
