A Peek at My Week

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a nice week & enjoyed your holidays! The beginning of this week was jam-packed with Christmas festivities but after the holidays, it was nice to have a laid-back week with not much on my schedule. As much as I love being busy and having things to do, sometimes it's nice to just lounge around the house all day.

On Saturday I slept in until almost 10:30am as I didn't get home from babysitting the night before until around 1:30am. After I woke up I showered and got ready for the day even though I wasn't planning on going anywhere. When I got downstairs I was SO excited to find that it was snowing and quickly rushed to run outside and snap some photos. 

I spent the rest of the afternoon redesigning the blog and planning out some content for 2018. Later in the day my mom was making cookies and had leftover chocolate so I took full advantage and dipped some strawberries into the bowl. Around 7pm my Grandma picked me up to run out to pick up a few last minute things for our Christmas Eve dinner and then when I got home I changed into my pajamas and watched a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy before going to bed.

On Sunday I woke up around 9:00am and went downstairs and made myself some hot chocolate and had a pretty lazy morning editing photos & working on blog posts for this past week. Around noon I finally started to get ready for Christmas Eve mass and dinner at my grandparents.

Mass was at 4pm but we got there around 3:15 in order to get a parking spot and seats since Christmas Eve mass is always so crowded. After mass was over we drove home and took some pictures and then headed over to my grandparent's house to meet my cousins for dinner and presents. We always do gifts on Christmas Eve at my grandparents so that on Christmas Day we can all just hang out and eat dinner.

We got home from my grandparents around 7pm and I was SO happy because it was finally snowing & the weather was predicting us to have a white Christmas which would be the first white Christmas since 2010. We took some more photos outside in the snow before heading inside to change into our pajamas. I stayed up until midnight watching Grey's Anatomy before finally going to sleep.

On Christmas, I slept in until 8:30am and after washing my face, I headed downstairs to make myself hot cocoa and wait for my younger brother Ryant to wake up so we could open up our presents. We finally got around to opening gifts about 10am which was super fun and I'm so lucky to have received all the gifts I did!

After presents, I took a shower and did my makeup before coming downstairs to work on some blog posts. Christmas Day is super laid back in my family which I love because we aren't rushing around to different places. 

At 4pm we headed over to my grandparent's house for Christmas dinner. We have steak and lobster and I absolutely LOVE lobster so it's easily one of my favorite dinners of the year. After dinner, we ate some Christmas cookies before coming home.

Once we were home I changed into my pajamas and worked on some more blog posts while watching some Netflix before heading up to bed. 


On Tuesday I woke up around 8:45 and quickly got dressed and washed my face as my mom and I had a few errands to runs. We had to make a couple of returns to Marshalls and I tried on a couple of new activewear items (I ended up purchasing the navy leggings & the navy top below) to try to motivate myself to start working out. We'll see how that goes.

After we went to Marshalls we went across town to TJMaxx to make a couple more returns and then we stopped by Costco to pick up a space heater since the weather here this week and next week is below zero temps and high winds.

The rest of the day on Tuesday was spent lounging around the house. I definitely could have been more productive but it's winter break so I'm allowed to be lazy, right?


On Wednesday I slept in until 9:30 and after washing my face, I headed downstairs where I made myself some french toast from Trader Joe's which was SO GOOD. 10/10 recommend.

After breakfast, I organized our fridge. Fun stuff over here y'all. Later on in the day, I helped my mom take down the Christmas tree which makes me so sad because I love Christmas but it was nice to have the house back to normal. I spent the rest of the night watching Netflix, as always.


On Thursday I slept in until 10am which was nice but I don't like waking up super early because I feel like I've wasted half my day but sometimes you just need to sleep in. My mom had made apple cinnamon muffins so I went downstairs and had some of those while I worked on a couple of things for DZ and school. 

For lunch I made myself some rice with sweet bell peppers and ate that while I watched an episode of Greys. The rest of the afternoon was spent working on blog posts, watching YouTube videos, and watching Netflix because it's just too cold to go outside.

How was your week?
