My Chic Week: September 16-22

Y'all, I was the worst blogger last week as I managed to not post any posts for y'all and I was pretty sporadic in my Instagram postings. I had a jam packed weekend, which I'll talk about in a minute, so I was unfortunately unable to preschedule my posts as I typically do. Then, last week was crazy hectic with quizzes and tests galore.

I decided that I would catch y'all up on what has been going on today in a My Chic Week post (which you may have guessed) but let's jump into it!


Friday was a crazy day for me: it was senior portraits, there was quizzes and assignments due as always, and I had a meeting during lunch. After school, I went to a Pure Barre class and then babysat for the remainder of the day!

On Saturday, my mom and I were up bright and early to head to High Point for the day to attend their Open House. I first visited High Point in July (which you can read about in this post) but it was so nice to be back and visit when the students are actually out and about. It was nice to tour again as my mom and I were able to see different aspects of campus and whatnot.



During my tour, we walked by who I was 99% sure was Mandy from Mandy J Engelman. I quickly DM'ed her in what I hoped would be the least creepy way possible and we actually we are able to quickly meet after the Open House activities ended. She is the absolute sweetest and my mom and I loved being able to hear more about her perspective on High Point and a little bit about Greek Life on campus (it turned out to be Greek Week while we were there so none of the students working the Open House were involved in Greek life). 


After chatting with Mandy, my mom and I headed back home to Charlotte and actually wound up going over to our old neighbor's house for dinner, which was a lot of fun!

On Sunday, I was thankfully able to sleep in and catch up on some much needed sleep. I worked on some homework and some blog work for a little bit with a cup of coffee of course!


I also nannied on Sunday for the family that I work for, which was a lot of fun! They have a preschooler and a baby so on Sunday, I was hanging out with their sweet little baby all day, which I loved. We hung out at their house for a while and also took a nice long walk around Myers Park (aka the Booty Loop for my Charlotte gals).



Monday was a fairly typical day other than that one of my top colleges visited my high school for an information meeting. I'm honestly still in disbelief that I'm a senior at that it's time to apply to and eventually decide on a college! I still have two more visits to do and I can't wait to share them with y'all! I also had my Faith Formation class on Monday, which I always love!

On Tuesday, I left school a bit early and then drove into the city for a NHS awards ceremony for our major philanthropy.  Two of my classmates (including one of my closest friends) and our NHS advisor attended and it was a fun afternoon. After the ceremony ended, we went to Bakersfield, one of my favorite Charlotte resturarants for chips and queso as well as delicious tacos.


Bakersfield is across the street from such a cool mural wall. Mural walls are super trendy on Instagram and it was so fun to take pictures in front of it. We were also all joking that my outfit of a Lilly fit and flare and pearls totally matched the artsy aesthetic of the wall but whatever haha.




Wednesday started off on a very busy note as I had a big AP Psych test during my first block. Thankfully, that was the brunt of the hard part of the day. After school, I nannied as well.

Thursday was pretty calm too during the day but unfortunately, I had quite a bit of studying to do for Friday, which we'll talk about in Friday's My Chic Week post!

Hope y'all are having a great Monday so far and a good start to your week!
