My Chic Week: March 11-17

2 and a half days, y'all! In case if you were wondering, that is how many school days I have until my Spring Break begins and I could not be more excited! This past week has been a doozy workload-wise and I have quite of bit of work to get done this weekend (but I also have some fun plans I'll be sharing next week) making me even more anxious for break to officially begin!


Friday was a pretty exciting day as my mom and I got up early and hit the road to go to tour Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. I toured Wake my freshman year (it is actually the first college I've ever toured) so I was excited to visit campus again!

It did not disappoint and it was so nice to walk around and explore campus a little bit!





Since Wake was on spring break, it was a self-guided tour so after that my mom and I drove over to the football stadium before going to get lunch at Panera before heading back home.


We ran a few errands before heading back home and I pretty much just hung out the rest of the afternoon and evening, which worked for me after an early wakeup that morning!

Saturday was another exciting day as my mom, sister, and I went shopping at Southpark Mall (which is in Charlotte) to shop at Lunch at Lilly. Lilly, of course, was our first stop and I was thrilled to pick up a lot of pretty goodies that are perfect for spring along with some fun Gift with Purchase items (not to mention, how cute is this dressing room!).





After Lilly, we hit a few more stores and ate lunch at California Pizza Kitchen (I'm obsessed with their Barbecue Chicken Pizza) before heading back home. That afternoon, I hung out and blogged for a bit before going to Saturday night Mass with my mom!

Sunday was a super lazy day, one that was much needed! I slept in and just worked on homework and blog stuff all day. My family had our Corn Beef and Cabbage dinner to celebrate St. Patrick's Day since that was Thursday and it's harder to do on a weeknight! The homemade Irish Soda Bread is the best part- I look forward to it every year!

On Monday, I had a spiritual retreat, which was nice since I didn't have to actually go to class that day! After school, I taught my Faith Formation class and then studied!


The rest of this week has been fairly insane to say the least. Today is my last major test day of the quarter so I have had a lot of studying to do to prepare for those! I also have a few big projects to work on this weekend (two books to read for AP Lit along with a Pre Calc project) so I am eagerly awaiting Wednesday, which is the start of my Spring Break!

Other than a tremendous amount of studying and homework, I have had a few meetings this week and I have nannied each night after school, which is always a fun break from all of my homework!



On my Radar:

1. Spring Break! My break starts on Wednesday and I could not be more excited! This week is the last week of the 3rd quarter (how did that happen?) so, as I mentioned before, I have had a lot of tests, quizzes, and projects this week! Good thing I'll be at the beach this time next week :)

2. Mackenzie Horan's adorable boutique, Design Darling, is having a sale to celebrate the boutique's 4th birthday! All purchases are 20% off with the code TURNINGFOUR. The boutique has so many cute items, I picked up this print that is perfect for my room redesign (which you can see the inspiration for here!)

3. I am loving this outfit from Amy!

4. I'm thinking of making these Mini Easter Egg Cakes with the little boy I nanny this week. They are so cute and fairly simple to put together! Be sure to follow me on Pinterest here!

5. I love Caroline's tips for staying healthy while on vacation, I will definitely be using some of these over Spring Break (find out where I'm heading in this post)

Be sure to check out my posts from this past week:


Have a great weekend!
