Tuesday would be a lot cuter if it were Friday!  Just saying!

The vacation hangover is a real thing.  I’m dying peeps.  I mean, not really.  Just a passenger on the struggle bus this week.  It just so happens to also be one of those weeks where there is something penciled in on every.single.day.  Whyyyy?  And it’s going to rain.  WTF Mother Nature?  Get it together.  I was in sandals (pictured below) and a short sleeve top yesterday.  Obvi Spring Fever is a real thing too!

Okay, enough bitching.  Maybe if we all bust out our cute spring outfits, the sun will come out + stay out?  It’s worth a shot 🙂

Here’s what I wish I was wearing/can’t wait to wear……

{friday 5}

Happy Friday 5!  I’m ready to jump up and down like the carpool girls!  The sun is shining and I cant wait to burn off from work and get the weekend started!  Even stuck my patron in the fridge to chill.  That means Skinny Skinny Margs asap!  Cheers!

It has been such a good week over here at xoxostacyb.  So many new followers…it makes my heart happy!  Next week I’m going to over share ALL THE THINGS Easter.  So brace yourself….this Holiday Whore is going all out lol.  In a good way!  I think.

 

Here are some things I’m currently diggin…..

ONE – Currently snacking on //  Why is it when I give up sugar, I crave apples?  I never, ever crave fruit.  And not just any apple, it has to be a honeycrisp.  Super thinly sliced.  Just how Bay requests her apples to be slices.  Topped with my homemade almond butter.  Then a dash of cinnamon.  Holy apples.  It’s so dang good.  Try it!

Since it’s better than what I was snacking on earlier this month (girl scout cookies) I’ve been going with it here and there to curb my GS cookie craving…lol.

TWO – Currently obsessed with //  This eyelash separator.  I’d never even heard of such a thing till a couple of weeks ago.  I started following thebeyoutybureau and she pulled one out of her bag of tricks.  I was in awwww.  It worked so well.  So I went to Target and got myself one….Ha!  I use it before I put on my mascara.  Then right after I apply mascara.  It’s legit!  Too legit to quit!

THREE – Bay’s currently diggin // Homemade granola.   Peanut Butter Granola to be exact.  She tops her morning yogurt.  Ice cream.  Over milk.  I try to not grab a handful every time she opens the jar.  It’s so good.  And so super easy.  We ran out of the TJ’s almond granola the other day.  So, I gathered ingredients from the pantry and gave it a shot.

When your homegirl tells you J.Crew has the perfect T-shirt.  Not just any old T-shirt.  A T-shirt that represent you.

A fucking chardonnay T-shirt you guys!

You buy that T-shirt.  And you wear that T-shirt with pride.  Well done J.Crew, well done.

CHEERS!!!

The only thing missing is a big glass of chard in my hand.  But this was taken at 7:30 am and that may have looked kinda funny?

Hi guys!  Happy Friday!  I’ve been a MIA the last couple of days.  I was starting to come down with a cold, tired AF and busy AF.  I knew I had to lay low the rest of the week in order to feel better.  Went to bed super early.  Drank tons of water.  Emergen-C’s.  And I’m back to feeling good.  Just in time for our backpacking trip this weekend.  Can you imagine backpacking in the middle of nowhere, sleeping outdoors being sick?  No way Jose.  But, I’m back for a quicky Friday 5!

5 things on my mind…..

 

ONE – Backpacking // We are hitting the road tonight for our second backpacking trip.   Saturday morning we will arrive in Ojai, CA and set off into the mountains.  With everything we’ll need for the next 30 plus hours on our back.  Tents + sleeping bags + food + water + cooking tools + toiletries + wine!  Obvi lots of wine.   I’m so excited that I hardly slept last night.  Our last trip was one that I’ll never forget.  And I can’t wait to do it all over again and make more memories with these chicks (minus one). 

I wrote all about our first backpacking trip back in October 2015 here: {weekend notes}

TWO – Cheerios // Hey fellow Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fans, Cheerio’s just release a new flavor.  The best one yet, in my opinion!  Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios!  Did you know Cheerios now offers 15 flavors?  Crazy, right?    I broke my diet last weekend to eat a handful of these and hot damn, I don’t regret it for a second.  They are everything you’d want them to be.  Chocolaty, peanut buttery, and so so good.  Trust me!

The ONLY store I’ve been able to find them at is Target in Woodland.

GO GET SOME!

Oh, and next week I’m making a fun treat with this cereal.  Think rice krispy treat, but with chocolate peanut butter cup Cheerios.  OMG, doesn’t it sound heavenly?  Stay tuned!

THREE – J.Crew Top // My new favorite shirt.  It’s so preppy, and I dig it.  The little tartan plaid pocket got me.  I kinda forgot about J.Crew Factory for a minute.  Then remembered why I used to love it so much.  They have so much cute shit.  Check it out and I promise you’ll find something cute that you must have.

They are offering 50% off all clearance items

{one shoulder}

Hey guys!  Just popping in to share my current love for the one shoulder top.  Remember my obsession with the cold shoulder?  Let’s reminisce….

{the cold shoulder}

{cold-shoulder maxi dress}

{friday 5}

{current uniform}

Told you, it was my thang!  When I find something I like, I take it overboard…just a little.

It’s even better than the off the shoulder.  None of that constant adjusting.  The one shoulder stays put.

Believe it or not, I only own ONE one shoulder top.  But, I went to Target today and I realllly wanted to buy more.  I’m on a strict “NO more summer clothes” rule.

September is going to hit and I wont touch them again….and then they wont be in style.

And I’ll have to have another garage sale to get rid of all my shit.

Just kidding….I’m NEVER doing that shit again.

{scalloped tank dress}

What if I told you that you can put this dress in your closet for $35.  Better yet, you can get it for $20…in other color options.

Now that’s worth writing a blog post about!  Ha!

This is the best picture I could get.  Sorry guys!

For some reason, I always wait till the very last-minute to take these pictures.  In the same spot in my room.  The same awkward selfie pose.  Why do I always have my left wrist like that?  I have no answers.

Remember how I was on time for work yesterday?  I was today too!!!  Running out of the house right after I changed out of this dress to jeans and a t-shirt (my work uniform).

When J.Crew Factory sent me a “please rate/review your purchase” email this morning, I realized this dress was on SUPER SALE.  So, I had to snap a pic and write a post about it.  When I find something that’s good, like real good, I have to share with my peeps.
