My Chic Week: November 25- December 1

Happy Friday y'all! This has been quite the week, jumping back into the craziness of school after a relaxing Thanksgiving Break. I only have 11 days of school before Christmas Break begins (thanks goodness) but my teachers decided to make these few weeks a bit stressful with an abundance of tests, quizzes, essays, and projects. Thankfully, my exams are after Christmas this year haha!


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!

On my Radar:


2. I absolutely loved Full House as a child- my childhood best friend and I would watch it pretty much everyday! This article about how the creator of the show purchased the real-life Tanner house made me so happy to read!

3. This sweater dress is so cute and is under $60!

4. Cristina posted this week about 25 Days of Joy, which I absolutely love as it's the cutest idea!

5. Julia is one of my favorite bloggers and while I was low-key reading through old posts of hers, I found this post on preparing for guests, which is so helpful for the holidays!

This week's posts:


Happy Friday!

  1. Sounds like you had a busy week! I had a hard time motivating myself to do anything on Monday after that long break too, haha! P.S. I'm super jealous that your exams are after Christmas break!
