Step Into My Week

I am sitting down to write this week’s posts with Christmas music playing in the background, a cup of hot chocolate next to me while it’s cold and rainy outside. Fingers crossed that sitting at my desk will help keep me productive in working on posts since I am thinking a Christmas movie will be calling my name tonight.

This week I was definitely feeling under the weather. I think that I had a cold of some sort, but it seemed to be in two stages. I went to sleep early most nights this week in an attempt to combat it and can finally say I think I’ve fought it off. I wasn't the best about getting pictures this week but will hopefully have more to share with y'all next week. 

My week started with a photo shoot on Monday for our 2019 Christmas cover that we had set up for the previous Friday. We finished up a little bit earlier than expected, so I was able to unload all of the props at the office and get some desk work done before heading home for the night. I think I made soup and was in bed before 8:00 if that at all describes how I was feeling. Tuesday I was in the office all day working on social posts, sending out complimentary copies, and helping a stylist prepare for the shoot we had the next day. I went straight home from work instead of working out this day too and was asleep by 9:00. 

Wednesday we had another Christmas photo shoot for next year. It was near my house, so I was able to work from home before heading to the house to begin setting up. We had our team holiday lunch and ornament exchange that day, so I was able to get away for a bit for that and wound up with a fun new ornament from one of the members of our team. I went back to the shoot afterward, and we were able to get the rest of the food shots done before packing everything else up and loading it in our cars. After work, I decided to go to the Y to workout before coming home and eating dinner, showering, and yet again going to bed early. 

Thursday was another day in the office aside from making returns for a stylist outside of the office for an hour. I was able to tackle a lot on my to-do list which always feels good especially since we work half days on Friday. As soon as 5:30 hit I headed home to get ready for a cocktail party for the Phoenix Club that I had been invited to. It was at a wine bar and art gallery in English Village and ended up being a lot of fun (sadly I didn’t think to take any pictures). We went to a bar in Mountain Brook afterward and I finally got home around 11:30 which is way past my weeknight bedtime (especially this past week). 

Friday I somehow woke up before my alarm despite being tired and decided to go ahead and get my day started. I got ready and then treated myself to Starbucks Friday with my laptop to continue working on gift guides for y’all. The office seemed especially quiet but was conducive to getting a lot done before leaving at noon. My afternoon was spent running to the store and then baking Christmas cookies, making appetizers, and tidying up our house before our friends came over at 7:15 to decorate Christmas cookies. I think I say this everytime I do things with this group of girls, but I feel really lucky to have such stellar friends here in Birmingham already. We ended up sitting around our coffee table in the living room devouring different appetizers before playing what do you meme and eventually decorating Christmas cookies. Before leaving, we played Dirty Santa, and I think all had a bit of a sugar high. 

Saturday morning it was cold and rainy here, so I ended up waking up and putting on comfy clothes with few intentions of leaving the house. I caught up with Sophia on the phone before deep cleaning our house in excitement for her to come to visit Birmingham next weekend. I worked on a lot of the graphics for this week’s blog posts. I did lots of laundry and watched the Grinch before Nell came over that night to watch the George H.W Bush special on NBC. We picked up dinner from Saw’s to eat while watching and ended up driving around and looking at Christmas lights afterward. The weather was getting really terrible, so we watched White Christmas and caught up before she went home. 

Sunday morning I got up and had a slow morning before going to church. My roommate and I ate lunch and watched The Princess Switch, and then I spent the rest of the afternoon/night preparing for the week ahead. I wasn't great about snapping outfit photos before work this past week but am determined to get all 5 days this week.

I hope that y'all had a great week and weekend!
