My Chic Week: November 13-19

Happy Friday y'all! This week has seemed crazy, full of both ups and downs. It has been Spirit Week for homecoming as well as the last full week before Thanksgiving so it has been a bit crazier than usual!


Last Friday, we had Mass during the day so we had to dress up and I also had two tests back-to-back. Friday night, I went out to eat with my family at our favorite local pizza place and then watching a movie (We're the Millers- which was so funny) back at home!


Saturday morning, my mom, sister, and I volunteered at our church's Christmas Bazaar. We have volunteered for years and it is such a fun way to get into the holiday spirit! Plus, it was the perfect excuse to break out my Vineyard Vines Santa Hat Whale tee!


After the Bazaar, we headed home for lunch. My parents went to my brother's soccer tournament so my sister and I headed to Target. I had a few necessities that I needed to buy but I also walked around the entire store (it took all of my self control to not buy the entire Christmas section!).

I bought this adorable pillow and can't wait to put it out!

After spending a lot of time in Target, I blogged and did some homework before heading to Mass with my mom. That night, we had fajitas for dinner and also watched Divergent as my sister just finished the first book!

Sunday wasn't too exciting as I worked on homework all day!

This past week was Homecoming Spirit Week. Since my school does not have a football team, we align our homecoming with the first home basketball game. We have themed days each day, the big game with a tailgate beforehand on Friday night, then the dance on Saturday!

Monday's theme was 'Merica Monday so the whole school dressed up in red, white, and blue. This week has been very hectic as I had a book due on Wednesday for AP Lit and I also had to work ahead a bit because I am missing class today to tour another college (follow me on Instagram for updates!) Monday, I also had my faith formation class that I teach, which always brightens up my Mondays!


Tuesday was Tailgate Tuesday, where you wear your favorite team's jersey. Tuesday seemed a bit hectic as I had tutored during lunch, babysat after school, and then worked on a few assignments that were due the next day.


Tuesday was also Principal Appreciation Day so the vice-principal was given a pig that will live on campus. We already have a few chickens so you know just adding on to that! If you don't believe me, check out the picture below!


Wednesday was Western Wednesday so I wore a gingham shirt with jeans and cowboy boots (that my next-door neighbor was so gracious to let me borrow), unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of my outfit! Wednesday was very hectic as I had a plethora of school work to do, SAT tutoring after school, and babysitting after that!

Thursday's theme was Theaterical Thursday so I dressed up as Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl (which slightly hilariously turned out to be an outfit I would wear usually). After school, I babysat, ran a few errands, did a little homework, blogged, and then got ready for my college tour the next morning! My family friends from Chicago (they visited in this previous post!) who are going to go on the tour with us also arrived that night!


1. Homecoming weekend! Tonight is our first home basketball games and then tomorrow is our homecoming dance! Can't wait to share the pictures with y'all next Friday!

  1. I miss Homecoming week from high school!! My high school was weird- our spirit week didn't align with homecoming. Homecoming was in October for football, and spirit week was in the middle of March every year- just randomly!! But I sure to miss the fun outfit days and the spirit- the one time of year we all got along. ;-)

    Yours looked super fun!

  2. That pillow is so cute and festive, and that is so funny that you now have a pig at your school!
