Need help, car smoking and oil on spark plugs

Hey guys, yesterday I was driving home, I was on the highway and when I pulled to the first stop light my car just started to put out blue smoke. It had done this before when I turned on the car one morning but not this bad. It was smoking all the way home which was about 5 minutes. I checked the spark plugs and they were wet with oil. I just took off the first two and they both have oil. It flashed the red oil light but it turned off immediately. The low oil light came on about a week ago and I put about 2 qts.

My car for a couple of months now has had a rough idle, not too bad but certainly noticeable. Only at low speeds you can feel the car stutter, when moving from a stop.

How could oil get on the spark plugs?
What are parts that possibly need to get replaced?

Thanks in advance.
Hoping to figure out what's wrong so I can order the parts and fix it this weekend.
