Um, I am super excited.

TO TELL YOU THAT I GOT AN IPHONE 5 ON SATURDAY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! After my phone broke last Monday, I told my dad and anticipated that it would be at least a month before we upgraded our plan, but he totally came through and got the new phones in less than a week. When you previous had a vintage sliding Sprint phone with a touch-screen that didn’t work, an iPhone is like, the coolest thing in the world to get. And lucky me, I was at a dance competition all day so I had loads of entertainment.

Want to know a super embarrassing story though? So we got the phones on Saturday and the wonderful man at the store told my dad that we had to run the battery on the phones completely down and then charge it 100% and that should help save the battery. So I did what I was told and let my phone die, and then plugged it in when I went to bed Saturday night (or so I thought). I woke up Sunday morning and it was still dead. Rude. So I totally thought I had a bad charger because I tried it with my iPad charger little box thing, in a different socket, AND in my laptop. Nothing. I was so frustrated, but had to go to the competition again, so I just threw it in my bag and decided I would go to Apple as soon as it opened. At the competition I was asking everyone with Apple products for help, and one of my little sister’s friends let me use her charger to see if it worked. It did! Then I was taught that I (get ready) was not pushing the charger in all the way. What is wrong with me?! I swear I have a Bachelor’s degree….

The rest of my weekend consisted on watching a lot (like a million) of dances. I started to go a little bit crazy I think. I also read a ton of my book. I’m currently reading Portia de Rossi’s book Unbearable Lightness, and I swear that I love it more and more every time I read it. Have you ever heard of it? I will do a review on it later this week after I finish it again, because it is more than worth it.

I also did a bunch of the Tone It Up workouts over the weekend and ate a lot of delicious pizza. It all balances out. Oh, and wine. Maybe that doesn’t balance out, but that’s okay.

Maybe if I actually write out on here what I want to accomplish this week, I will actually do it:

  • Work out every day and not decide to go home and watch the Kardashians instead, which I literally just decided to get into
  • Make a new YouTube video to send to Ellen; I made this one over the weekend, LOL
  • Actually call some of the people that are on my list to see if they want to get into personal training
  • Work on editing the pages on my blog
  • Research more jobs/places to live in California

Extensive, right? Just kidding. But truthfully, I am so much more likely to do something if it is written down. I tend to get distracted very easily, which I’m sure you know by now. Now I’m off to do something super exciting and watch Married to Jonas before I go to bed. What an exhilarating Sunday night! Look for lots more pictures now that I HAVE AN IPHONE! Open-mouthed smile

What was the coolest thing that happened to you this weekend?


  1. Ahhhhh yay! Welcome to the world of the fun phone! Those things are awesome for everything :) Oh and i’m reading portia’s book next and just did some tone it up videos so i officially dedicate my morning to you :)

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Thanks love! It is the BEST. Do you have one? I love you for saying you dedicated your morning to me..that totally made my day.

  2. Yay!! I love my iPhone, I’m sure you will too!! And the Kardashians.. such a guilty pleasure! Once you start you just can’t stop :)

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Already obsessed with it. Girl, you and I just need to live by each other because we get more and more similar every day.

  3. Ha Ha girl, you are too cute!! ..I so wish the kardashians aired over here :( :( At least I know you are watching for the both of us

  4. Portia’s book gave me a completely different perspective of eating disorders. Such a crazy/upsetting/inspiring story. The coolest thing I did this weekend was watch movies.. all really good ones, too!

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Agreed. It makes me want to cry. Just breaks my heart all the thoughts that went through her head and how many other girls go through the same thing. Movies are the BEST. Add wine and popcorn and I am one happy camper.

  5. YAH! The iphone is so awesome, there are so many great apps you will have to get!
    List are a great way to organize and get things accomplished!

  6. Yay for your new iPhone! I always have technological issues. I’m so incompetent!

    Double YAY for your Youtube video! Way to be persistent ;) . I have a good feeling about this!

  7. YAY iPhones unite! I love my iPhone. I used to have a Blackberry (lolz really) but quickly converted.

  8. a new phone is always a great feeling

  9. Embarrassingly enough, shows with the Kardashians are quite addicting. So I cannot blame you there! ;)

  10. I need to get a new phone so bad! I can’t decide if I want another iPhone, or if I want to venture over to the android OS :)

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Ooh, I don’t know! I have never had an iphone before, and I’m pretty much loving it. I just feel so “in” with it, haha.

  11. The iPhone 5 changed my life. No joke. I took all of my photos in Puerto Rico with it and it gets so much better service than the 4!! Have fun with it, just remember how to plug in the charger ;)

    And, I love the list action. I totally have to make lists too in order to get stuff done!

  12. Ahhh!!!! That’s so awesome! I have a 4S but I’ve heard the 5 is pretty fab!
    I had a blackberry before this but now I can’t imagine going back!
    The Samsung S3 is pretty comparable…but I’m more of an apple gal myself ;)

    Super exciting though! In regards to the charger incident…I could totally picture myself doing the same thing ;)
