My Chic Week: December 16- 22

Happy Friday and Merry Christmas Eve Eve y'all! I can't believe we only have a few days until Christmas but I am so excited for my favorite holidays and all of the festivities the next few days hold. Tonight is my family's annual Christmas party and I'm so excited that one of my besties is coming over. Today and the rest of Christmas will be recapped next week but for now, let's catch up!


Friday wound up to be not too busy of a school day but after school, I had a few errands to run (getting gas and getting Chick-fil-a) before going to nanny all night. I brought one of my favorite Christmas movies from when I was little to watch with the kiddos and after they fell asleep, I watched a few of my favorite episodes of Gossip Girl on Netflix.

Saturday morning, I somewhat slept in and then went to a Pure Barre class. After class, I grabbed Starbucks and then met up with my dad to do a little Christmas shopping.


Once I got back home, I ate lunch and then spent the afternoon working on a combination of school work and blog stuff and wrapping presents. My family and I went to Saturday night Mass, which was definitely a good excuse to get out of my workout clothes and wear this fun Lilly top!


Sunday was pretty much my day to catch up and do both some schoolwork and blog work. I didn't have too much homework as it was right before break but it was definitely good to get it done. I also went to a Pure Barre class in the afternoon, which is always good in my book!

Monday was a bit crazy as it was the last day of class before break began so it started off with a quiz in my AP Psych class and ended with staying a little late after school to turn in a Calc project.

As you probably know, I teach a religious education class for first graders at my church and Monday was a Nativity performance by another class and my class also performed a song, which was the cutest thing!

After the performance, I went to a Pure Barre class and then once I got home, I found out that I got into Elon! The notification was supposed to be released on Tuesday so I was surprised and excited to find out early. Definitely made my day!


Tuesday was an early dismissal day but was still a hectic day with Mass, a Pancake Breakfast, and games all in the span of a few hours. The Pancake Breakfast is an event hosted by the Service Committee that I am the Vice President of so there was a lot of running around and making sure everything was going smoothly for that.

After school let out and it was officially Christmas Break, I came home since my mom picked up some Chick-fil-a and we basically spent the afternoon running all sorts of errands and last minute gift shopping.


While my mom and I were in the car driving around town, we realized that it was 5 and the Furman decision was available online so I promptly checked it and was SO excited to find out I was accepted (seriously though I started tearing up!).

We are currently in the process of training Kona and I snapped this hilarious picture of her (my mom was driving haha) on the way home from her "school"- too cute!


Wednesday was my first day of Christmas Break as the little boy I nanny and I went to a children's museum, which was honestly so cool and a lot of fun (wish it was open when I was little). After the museum, we went out to lunch and then to visit his mom at work before going back to the family I nanny for's house for a bit.

After nannying, I went home and my family ordered Chinese food and watched Christmas Vacation, one of my favorite Christmas movies!


Yesterday, I didn't have too much scheduled but it still wound up being a busy day. I made some biscuits for breakfast and caught up with emails before going to a Pure Barre class and running to Target (which was a zoo but that was to be expected a few days before Christmas).



After I got home, I ate lunch and then my siblings, mom, and I decorated a ton of cookies. We always have a day "dedicated" to cookie baking and decorating, which I was always love even if my cookies aren't the most professional in the world haha.

My grandparents and uncle also arrived in the afternoon and I'm so excited to have them in town to celebrate Christmas!


I will be posting a Weekend Reading tomorrow morning with a bunch of links so be sure to check that out tomorrow!
