My family and I were home for Thanksgiving this year, which meant we were able to decorate earlier than usual. After sleeping in, we went to go pick out our Christmas tree and then I went to a lunchtime barre class. My mom and I spent the rest of the afternoon decorating for Christmas, which is always so fun! After dinner, my entire family watched Elf, which was such a great way to kick off the Christmas season.
I wound up nannying for a few hours on Saturday morning and then came home to help finish decorating afterwards. I loved having time to just relax over break so it was nice to have a low-key afternoon before going to Mass and then having dinner at home.
Sunday was a fairly relaxed day as well. My mom and I ran errands in the morning and then I spent the afternoon working on my to-do list, including blog posts and reading a book for AP Lang that I somehow forgot about haha!
Monday was just one of those days were it was "go, go, go" all day long. Waking up was a bit rough, especially after such a long weekend, so my morning coffee was much needed haha. I had my Faith Formation class in the afternoon and we practiced Away in a Manger. Let me tell you that first graders singing is super cute haha! After Faith Formation, I ran home to eat dinner and then was back to Church for my little brother's Confirmation rehearsal. My brother is being confirmed next week and since I am his sponsor, I wanted to attend the meeting so I know what to do haha. I also had a Psychology test to study for, which was pretty fun as you might imagine.
Tuesday was such a busy day with tests, a meeting during lunch, and working after school.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays at my school, we have "block day", meaning we only have 4 of our 8 class but for a hour and a half. We didn't have too many block days in November due to a plethora of short weeks so this was the first block day in a while, making it seem a million times longer haha.
Yesterday was a pretty exciting day as it was my last college application deadline. I finished all of my applications about a month ago but it was so exciting to reach that final deadline. I find out my next "round" of notifications in a few weeks (eek!) so stay tuned!
Other than that fun deadline, Thursday was fairly normal day as I nannied in the afternoon as well!
