My Chic Week: November 20-26

Happy Friday y'all! I hope you all had a wonderful Friday and are enjoying Black Friday (and eating all of those yummy leftovers)!


This week has been quite a busy one and I'm so excited to share the details with y'all today! So grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and get reading!

Friday morning, my mom, family friends, and I all went to go tour Elon University. I previously toured there my freshmen year with my school so I was so excited to tour again, even if it was a bit chilly! Elon's campus is so pretty and I'm so glad that I was able to tour!



After the tour, we picked up some t-shirts at the bookstore and then grabbed lunch at Chick-fil-a. After getting back home, we went shopping (and spent too much $$$ at Lulu #sorrynotsorry).

Friday night was our homecoming basketball game with a tailgate, which was a lot of fun! The girls team won but unfortunately both JV and Varisty boys lost, which was a bummer!

Saturday morning, I slept in and then started to take down my room, since I'm redoing it! It was quite the task to remove everything, even though my parents were sweet enough to take down my bed and move furniture while I was at my hair appointment!

I had a much-needed hair appointment that afternoon, which I am so excited with the results of! I spent the rest of my afternoon organizing my room, blogging, and running errands.

Saturday night was my Homecoming so I went over to a friend's so we could all get ready together! The dance was a lot of fun (any dance that plays High School Musical is a good one in my book!).


After a weekend full of fun, unfortunately, I had to catch up on all of homework on Sunday. Especially since I missed school to tour Elon on Friday, I had a lot to catch up on and sadly, not enough motivation to match! I was super thankful that it was only a short week with class on Monday and Tuesday before break!


Monday was not my favorite day of the week. All weekend I have had a pretty nasty cough and unfortunately, it really peaked on Monday. I also started my morning off on a bad note as I left my laptop at home. I had an appointment at the doctor's after school to check on my cough as my mom and I wanted to make sure it wasn't too serious and then I spent the rest of the night studying!

Tuesday was my last day before Thanksgiving Break and it was busy to say the least. I had few quizzes along with a test so I was pretty happy once school ended for the day!


On Wednesday, my family and I drove 9 hours south to go visit my grandfather in Alabama for Thanksgiving! The ride was quite awful as we hit several major accidents in every state so it wound up taking 10 hours!

Thursday was Turkey Day (obviously!). I started my morning by walking my dog with my family and then spend the rest of the day watching the parade, helping my mom cook, blogging, and of course eating!


On my radar:

1. So many sales! I'm planning on doing a big sale round up post on Monday for Cyber Monday so be on the lookout for than. But in the mean time be sure to check out J. Crew, J. Crew Factory, the Kate Spade Surprise Sale, and Pottery Barn Teen for some amazing deals that end tonight or on Sunday!

2. A special on the new season of PLL aired Tuesday night with insights on the new season! What did y'all think of it!

3. If y'all follow me on Twitter (if not follow me here!), you probably saw my latest obsession: Fresh Market Peppermint Bark. Oh my gosh y'all this stuff is amazing and I will probably eat a ridiculous amazing throughout the Christmas season! But now that Thanksgiving is over, it's acceptable, right? (please tell me yes!)

4. Tory Burch is currently offering 30% off for every purchase of $250 or more until Monday, perfect for Christmas shopping (hint hint, Mom and Dad!)

5. I don't know if y'all noticed but the Pin it button for all of my images has disappeared! I was tweaking my site design this week and now I cannot get the button to come back (and I've looked up every tutorial under the sun!). Fellow bloggers- any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Be sure to read my other posts from this week:

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving break with your family and friends (and enjoy all of the leftovers from yesterday's feast)!

  1. Hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!! Homecoming was always my favorite dance in high school- I always had more fun at those dances than prom even!

    Elon is such a beautiful campus- I know people that have gone there both from my hometown and also blogging friends!
