A Peek Into My Week

I'm so excited to be writing this post right now that I think I could make it like six pages long. I've sort of been staying away from personal posts lately because it seems kind of boring to read about my life lately; consisting mainly of school, early bedtimes, and lazy weekends. This week, however, I feel like I have so many random things to share, from my excitement for the holidays to the items I've been eyeing lately.

1. I only have a 3 1/2 day week this week - a half day today and no school tomorrow. I've taken so many tests and done so many projects that this short break is much-needed. I'll admit that I actually do like going to school and being productive, but this week I felt overwhelmed by all the tests I had on material that didn't want to stick with me. I studied hard, drilled everything into my brain, and am now done with work for the next three days! Woohoo!!

2. I'm so torn between going into full-on Christmas mode or waiting for Thanksgiving to pass before I start getting into the spirit. Is anyone else having this dilemma, or is it just me? I'm so proud of myself for not listening to one single Christmas song yet or asking my mom to buy candy canes, but every day I feel the urge to more and more. The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year, so I start celebrating the second after the Thanksgiving dinner dishes are cleaned up. I try to always enjoy my Thanksgiving without worrying about Christmas just yet so I can fully embrace everything the two different occasions have to offer. (That sounds so corny.) All my other friends that are holding off on celebrating - we can do this!!

3. You may have already seen on my Instagram story on Tuesday, but I just got a new haircut! I cut a few inches off and had it layered to get rid of the shaggy look...finally. My hair feels so light and healthy! 




4. I just ordered this new Shep Shirt from Vineyard Vines, and I don't think you can get any better. Navy and stripes? Yes, please!

5. This L.L.Bean flannel scores a 10/10 in my book. I've seen so many bloggers wearing it, and it looks just as good in person, if not better than it does in their photos and on the store website. The quality is incredible, and I got so many compliments while wearing it.


6. Playbuzz quizzes have been taking up wayyy too much time in my life right now. I mindlessly scroll through Pinterest and come across a pin for one, so, I mean, why would I not want to know what my best character trait is or what pet type is meant for me?! I really need to stop... there are so many more productive things I could be doing. But hey, they're a fun way to kill time if you're bored.

Have a great rest of your week and weekend!
