Weekend Recap: 12/18 - 12/20


Hey friends!! Happy last Monday before Christmas!! Y'all, there are FOUR days until Christmas!! How crazy is that!!?? This will be my last weekend recap of the year, so I hope you enjoy!
As usual, I am linking up with HeatherLindsayJohannah, and Tanya!




Friday was my last day of school before Christmas break! I got up at my usual time, and got ready! Clara was hanging out with me while I was getting ready! What a great photo!! ;)
I passed a test for math, and I am so happy I am ahead in math!! In between zoom meetings, Pip was being so sweet, so I had to take a picture!
Then around 10:30, I started taking notes and studying for a history test that we don’t have to take for a while. I wanted to go ahead and take it to see if I could get it over with, and I passed it with a 10/10!! Yay!!
After I was done with my history zoom meeting, I was done with all my school work!! Mom and I got to work on our coffee cakes and banana breads to give to neighbors and friends!! We decided to make our own tags for the cakes, so we just traced out a tag shape, and I wrote on them! The cakes turned out super cute!




When we were done delivering a couple of the cakes, Maddie, Pip, and I chilled in my room! We ended up having a little bit of a photoshoot! Don’t you just love the action photos!!?


That night I delivered a cake and a banana bread to our neighbor Ms. Beth!! She gave Clara and me a Christmas present! It was a balloon blow-up pump!! We loved playing with the one she had, so she got us one!! We could not stop making balloons, and playing the “don’t let it drop” game!
Then we were in bed, and it was lights out!!



Saturday was a BIG day!! I slept in late, and thoroughly enjoyed catching back up on my resting time! Around 10 AM, Mom and I went to Target to go get a Dirty Santa gift for the party later that day. I also ended up getting Clara a couple of gifts, and a super cute calendar for me! Me and my unnecessary selfies! ;)
When we got home, we quickly made another coffee cake and tag for Mrs. Jamie who’s house we were having our Christmas volleyball party at! We also wrapped the Dirty Santa gift, which was this SUPER cute $10 necklace, and a bag of hot chocolate Hershey’s Kisses! Then it was party time!
Only eight of us could make it to our party plus one of our coaches!! First, we decorated gingerbread houses outside! We had the best time! My gingerbread house was so cute, and I was so proud until my roof started falling! Funny thing was that Harlie’s roof fell too!
After we finished our houses, it was on to Dirty Santa!! We had the BEST time playing!! I will say that I lucked out on my present! I drew number two, which is the worst number to get, but I still ended up with the gift that I wanted. My gift was a Rae Dunn candle, which smells so good, and these super cute sock-slippers that I have been wanting! I did not take them off once after I got home!! When we were done with Dirty Santa, we took a group photo! This picture is just too cute!
This was my gift, and me not taking off the socks!


For dinner we had Chick-Fi-La, and it was so good!! For sure my favorite place to get take-out from!!
Then I did some blogging and hopped in bed!



Sunday I also slept in super late!! I showered in the morning, which is something I rarely do. That afternoon I had practice 3-5, and we all had a blast!!
When I got home I showered, ate dinner, and got in bed!! 




Friends, that was my weekend!! I hope you enjoyed reading! I will see you back here with a This OR That: Holiday Edition! Have a wonderful day!

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

We missed having a dog so much, and it was so hard for all of us. So, we started looking for dogs. We connected with the West Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, and they found a male puppy in Prattville, which is so close to us. At first, we weren't sure if he was available for adoption or even fostering. It turns out he was! On Saturday, Mom picked up him from the shelter, and when I got home from
