Last Friday was my last day of school before the break and it was a half day so we were out of school by noon. Every year, it is more of a fun day with activities (Christmas Karaoke, anyone?) and games followed by Mass. It's always a fun day to decompress after exams and then spend time with friends before the break.
Friday afternoon, I had a few friends come over to decorate cookies (shown in Monday's post) and then to watch some Christmas movies!
Saturday morning, I slept in and then spent the morning catching up on everything blog related in bed. I accomplished some items on my to-do list in the afternoon before heading to babysit two of my favorite kiddos!
I slept in possibly the latest all year on Sunday morning after getting home pretty late from babysitting. The main mission of Sunday was tackling organizing addresses for Christmas cards and then organizing my room!
Monday started off with a nice walk around the neighbor with my mom and dog. We decided to spend the day finishing up our Christmas shopping so we headed to the mall (where it wasn't as crazily crowded as I imagined!). My mom and I also headed out to get our nails done that afternoon and I got my eyebrows waxed which was needed after not having them done for the longest time!
I got up bright and early (well like 8, which is bright and early during Christmas Break) for a dentist appointment and then to run to Target for some last minute supplies. Tuesday was our baking day so my mom, siblings, and I baked an INSANE amount of cookies all day. We also had our friends's puppy over at our house for the day so it was safe to say I was exhausted afterwards.
On Wednesday, my family hosted our annual Christmas Party so my day was pretty much spent prepping for that. It was super rainy and miserable that day but pretty perfect for baking the Peppermint Pound Cake for the party!
I invited one of my best friends to the party so we could hang out (since I haven't seen her in ages!) and it was so fun catching up not to mention eating way too much food!
Yesterday was Christmas Eve so I spent the majority of the day relaxing and hanging out at home before we headed to Mass later on in the afternoon. After Christmas Mass finished, we came home for a delicious dinner of spaghetti and then watched one of my favorite Christmas movies, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the animated one, not a fan of the one with people!). My dad's favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story so we had to watch that since they started the 24 hours of A Christmas Story before heading to bed!
On my Radar:
1. Christmas Day! As y'all know today is Christmas so I'm so excited to spend time with my family and for Christmas dinner with our next door neighbors!
2. These Kate Spade Euro Shams for my Room Redesign (which you can see the inspiration behind here) arrived this week and I'm obsessed!
3. Full House was one of my favorite shows when I was younger so I was thrilled to see the trailer for Fuller House!
4. I am so jealous of Mackenzie's recent trip to Maui! I have always wanted to visit Hawaii and hopefully, someday, I'll be able to visit the locations on her guide to Maui!
5. I am loving this outfit from Carly! Makes me want to go buy a cashmere wrap ASAP!
I have quite a few posts from this past week, so be sure to check those out if you haven't already!
