My Chic Week September 18-24

Oh gosh, this has been quite the week. I just wanted to start off by saying I like to have my blog be a positive place so I tend to not share the negative details of my everyday life. This past week hasn't been my favorite since my grandmother passed away last Friday from cancer so I am currently in Alabama for her funeral.


Last Friday, I got my wisdom teeth out so my day pretty much consisted of watching Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings on TV and eating a lot of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Later in the day, when I was feeling a bit better, I was able to get some of my homework done!

The rest of my weekend was very relaxed as I spent Saturday morning organizing, blogging, and doing some homework! My mom and I ran a few errands after lunch then I spent a few more hours doing homework! Later that night, I babysat. Sunday was full of AP Lit reading and APUSH studying.

Some adorable to do lists I bought over the weekend. Cute to do lists make lots of work to do a lot more fun (at least in my opinion)!

Monday was my only full day of classes this week and it was busy to say the least! After school, I came home to do a little homework before leaving for my Faith Formation class. After Faith Formation, I ate dinner and then worked on a study guide for one of my classes.

On Tuesday, my school had a service day at a local elementary school so I spent the day helping out in a special needs classroom and then helping out around the school! It was a lot of fun and it was nice to get out of class for the day and to also help others!

On Wednesday, my family and I drove 9 hours to Alabama for my grandmother's funeral. Once we arrived, we relaxed at our hotel then headed over to my grandfather's for dinner. Unfortunately, I had to head back to the hotel early since I had a giant APUSH study guide due on Thursday night that I had to get done so I worked on that for a while at the hotel.

A stop at Starbucks was very necessary during the 9 hour drive!

Thursday, we slept in and got ready for the funeral. We had breakfast at a little cafe and then spent the morning and early afternoon at the funeral. This has been a hard trip because it feels like a vacation because our hotel is gorgeous and has views of the bay but I have to keep reminding myself we aren't here on vacation (so don't take my Instagrams as me being on vacation!) not to mention losing my grandmother. I spent the afternoon working on homework. We had dinner at the hotel and then swam in the hotel pool after dinner which was a lot of fun!

The gorgeous sunset

On my radar:

1. It has been 10 years since the time capsule episode of Zoey 101 (one of my favorite childhood shows) and TeenNick finally revealed what Zoey said about Chase! Check out the clip here!

2. Loved this vlog from Dorothy on her life at college!

3. Tory Burch just launched a sports line and it is gorgeous! Definitely very pricy but the pieces are adorable! I love that there is a whole section of clothes for "coming and going" that are perfect for thinking "what do you mean you are actually supposed to workout in workout clothes??".

4. Love these tips on how to start your week off right!

5. Carly of The College Prepster and her boyfriend, Garrett, just launched a YouTube channel and it is definitely one to watch!

    1. Thanks Sydney! Ah I loved it (didn't love the long wait for it), hopefully if they make another part it wouldn't take 10 years! I would check out Jamie Lynn Spear's (Zoey) Instagram, it's full of comments saying go find Chase, which I find hilarious!
