My Chic Week: April 15-21

Friday, April 22, 2016

Am I the only one counting down the days till summer vacation (29 school days!)? Life has been insane since coming back from Spring Break and I know that the next month is going to fly by as it is so jammed packed with events!

Friday wasn't too bad school-wise in terms of tests and quizzes and assignments, which definitely was a relief as school has been so busy (hence the lack of blog posts) since coming back from spring break. I nannied that afternoon and I wound up walking with the boy I nanny and his neighbors to a nearby ice cream place. The family I nanny for are actually family friends so my family actually drove over for dinner at their house on Friday night, which was a lot of fun!

Sadly, I had to wake up fairly early on Saturday morning as I had an APUSH review session to go to at 7:30 AM (which is insanely early for me on the weekends!). I grabbed Starbucks for breakfast on the way and it fortunately wasn't too bad and I know it will be helpful for when I take the exam in a few weeks (eek!).

After the review session, I headed home and worked on homework all afternoon, so nothing too exciting! I went to Saturday night Mass and then we had our neighbors over for dinner as our friends from out of town were visiting (they were here in this postthis post, and this post!).

This weekend was very homework heavy so I spent the majority of Sunday working on homework as well. I, however, did take a break to meet up with a friend at a local bakery for coffee. We were planning on talking about our thoughts on the service committee we are on as I recently became the Vice President and she became the President but we wound up catching up for the majority of the time, which I will not complain about doing!

A little bit of inspiration via the Kate Spade store on Madison Avenue, which I visited while in New York City over Spring Break!

On Monday, it was back to waking up early (I cannot wait for summer so I can sleep in and not do homework all the time!) and it, as always, was a crazy day! Luckily, I didn't have that much homework that night, which is always welcome in my book!

Oddly enough, I didn't have a lot of homework on Tuesday, which is pretty strange as AP testing is right around the corner. But it was nice to have the afternoon off from activities since I didn't have to nanny and just get ahead on some assignments!

Since Tuesday was fairly qualm-free, Wednesday of course was crazily busy. I had an eyebrow wax after school then nannied. I also had an essay due that night and a test to study for, all very fun (#not).

Thursday was probably my most hectic day as I woke up bright and early after a few hours of sleep to go get ready for the Pancake Breakfast that the Service Committee I am the VP of puts on every so often. Luckily the event was a success, which made the waking up early and running around the school getting things ready (I'm pretty sure I had 3,000 Fitbit steps before 9 AM) worth it! The craziness of the day didn't stop there as we had shortened classes and a game of Bubble Soccer in the afternoon. I didn't play but it was definitely hilarious to watch!

Then after school, I raced to pack up my stuff so my mom and I could drive down to tour UGA. We arrived kinda late so we ate dinner at our hotel and then went to bed fairly early!

On my Radar:

1. This weekend's plans: this weekend is going to be a busy one and I could not be more excited! I have the day off today and I am touring UGA (we drove down last night). And tomorrow is prom! I was teetering back and forth on whether I should go or not but I decided to go (as I don't have a date) but I decided to go and I'm super excited (I mean how many times as a 17 year old do you have the opportunity to wear a formal gown?)! Stay tuned for next week as I'll be recapping all of my whereabouts but in the mean time, follow me on Instagram and Twitter!

2. I have been obsessed with Carrie Underwood's latest song, Church Bells. So good!

3. This "Which Suburban Mom Are You" is like the next blue and black or white and gold dress. This Buzzfeed quiz tells you which Mom you are. I'm Susan, which I would say would be pretty true (I'll let y'all know in another ten or fifteen years) but I thought it was funny I got the blogger mom as you know...I already have a blog. I would love to know which Mom you are so let me know who you are in the comments!

4. Majorly crushing on these Kate Spade heels. Thinking they may need to be my next splurge!

5. I found this article on Lilly Pulitzer's marketing strategy to millennials really interesting (I found it from Meredith's post!).
