My not so eventful three day weekend.

Lets start with friday. I was so tired from my week. I went home, ate dinner, took a shower, then passed out. I know, it sounds so exciting.

Saturday morning was a not so peaceful morning I had been so used to. My mom is finally home from all her traveling, so my brother is back home too. I woke up to the sound of loud Saturday morning cartoons. Sounds perfect right? Wrong. I called my brothers name and he came running in and the first thing he said was "Where's Norton?" Shocking right? Well, I guess he could see my face getting red so he said "I'll turn it down..." he grabbed Norton and walked out.

I must have fallen back asleep cause when I woke up it was so sunny in my bedroom. Almost blinding, haha. I finally decided to get my butt out of bed. I wobbled down the stairs to find my mom watching a Chimpanzee documentary, while Norton attacking her feet. I never know what I'm going to see when I go downstairs.

Of course the first step I take out of my moms room, Norton comes running after me racing up the stairs (I swear he is the oddest cat).

While in the shower I think to myself...."What am I going to do today.." I already know my mom will not want to pick me up anywhere after 10 pm.... So I forget about my friends birthday party and asking to go to the movies (WHY DON'T I HAVE MY LICENSE YET?) So I finally come up with the plan of going to the mall with my mom and younger brother... But as soon as I get dressed and get some food in me my mom has already left for the gym. Of course I look at my phone and there was the "golden text message" from my mom.. This text is golden because when ever my mom texts me its either to make cookies, clean my bathtub, do the dishes, or take my lundry out of the washer. This time the text message says..."I want the house clean, Please sweep the floors and do the dishes before I get home... you have 45 minutes." So, what do I do... I call my brother upstairs and I make a deal with him, If he rinses the dishes and cleans the counter then I will sweep and load the washer. See my method is if I clean my room (which desprately needed to be cleaned, then I can bribe Riley to sweep at least the kitchen and family room. Of course I succeeded. I believe my mom was surpised at how clean we got the house. YES! That meant my mom would end up taking Riley and I at least somewhere for the day. She ended up taking us to get eye brows done (Just my mom and I) and American Apperal where we each got one item.

My mom got these pants...

Riley got this heat censured shirt.

And I got this dress/skirt/shirt.

I was happy about my purchase except the fact there were about 5 things in there that I wanted as well... Its hard to shop after a year of absolutely no shopping.

After, we got delicious burgers from our favorite cuban restaurant named Porto's. Its sooo yummy!

Well a saturday night would not be complete with out a friend coming over... My friend Elizabeth came over and we had a total photo shoot with the scraps from the jeans we cut up.

We didn't quite know what to do with them... Below you can see what we came up with:

Leg Warmers?

Brittany Spears costume?

Shin guards?

More shin guards?

Even more shin guards?

Norton even got dressed up....

Which didn't work out.

So finally I decided to cut strips of three and braid them together so they would be bracelets...

Which turned out quite nice... I might say. They even are anklets. YAY, 10 points for Haley!

Well, the night ended and Elizabeth and I passed out watching Good Luck Chuck. In the morning we ate some frosted flakes and she got picked up :(.

Well, my mom decieded at the last minute to tell me a bunch of family were going to be at my house in less than an hour. So I raced to clean up my room and get dressed.

I love when my auntie Lizzy visits because she gives the best back rubs. Which I desperatly needed.... It was nice :) I also hadn't seen her in almost 7 months. She is a lot like me and I love her soo sooo soooooo sooooooooo much.

My grandma came too, and might I add brought me my face mask stuff... Which I live for. I love hanging with my grandma... She lets me drive her car (WHICH WILL BE MINE!) We have lots of fun together.. I always say I'm special because I am her ONLY granddaughter and the first born. I love her sooo much. She is always there for me.

Well my aunt Amy and my cousin Alexis came along too. The last time I saw them was when Alexis was 6 now she is 9 and totally looks soo much more grown up!

After they left, my mom made one of my favorite dinners, Pesto Pasta. YUMMY! Except the mess that Riley and I had to clean up... Haha.

Well, my mom left me home to babysit my brother who I think can be home for an hour and a half...But what ever.. Riley and I made a decicious chocolate souffle.

Looks yummy right? RIGHT!

Well I was very sleepy from all the non business.. I went to bed at 10pm! Which is very early for me...

I woke up this morning... All by myself.. :( All I did today was watch TV and walk around the house aimlessly... HAHAHA... Well it is my day off. Now I'm off to do my World History homework. YES!

Hope you all enjoyed reading about my not so eventful weekend.

G'night all,

Haley Rae
