8. Family Time

After i got home, i put on some pajamas and went to sleep.

The next day when i woke up, i could smell some bacon, biscuits, sausgage, cinnamon rolls, and some gravy. So i went upstairs after i fixed my hair enough to where it looked normal because i wasn't exactly used to the family yet. When i got up there i saw a plate that Natalie had fixed for me. "I didn't know what you liked so i got a little bit of everything and put the gravy to the side for you" she said handing me the plate. "Thanks, and yeah i don't like gravy so thanks for putting it on the side" i said laughing a little.

After breakfast was over, i went to get a shower. I loved the way they decorated their bathroom. It was an ocean theme, which i thought was so cute and relaxing. The walls were painted blue, it had ocean wallpaper at the top going all the around, and they had the accesories to match everything. I didn't take a long shower only because i don't know if they have a time limit on showers to save on the bill so it was only about 10 minutes.

When i came out of the bathroom Julie, Natalie, and my host mom all said to me that they were going out for a day in the town and wanted to know if i wanted to come for some girl bonding. "Yes of course! That sounds like a lot of fun. When do you want to leave?" I said with a big smile on my face. "Whenever you're ready, we don't want to rush you" My mom said. "Don't worry though i still have to get ready to" natalie joined in. "Do you wanna get ready together?" I asked her. "Yeah, just let me get stuff" "can i, too?" Julie said sounding innocent. "Why yes, you can darling" i told her, trying to sound british (didn't work out to well). "Yay!" She sounded excited.

2 hours later***

We were all done and ready to go. Since we live near London it didn't take long to get there maybe about 10-20 minutes. Anyway when we arrived there we went to topshop first. I've never heard of it, but i liked the store. It reminded of JCPenny's. we were in there for awhile, but got some cute clothes and some makeup. Natalie got 2 outfits and 3 pairs of shoes, Julie got 3 pairs of pants, 1 pair of shoes, 2 shirts and a straightener, i got 4 outfits, 3 pairs of shoes, and some foundation and mascara, my mom didn't get much but she got herself 2 pairs of shoes. I found my new go-to store for whenever i ran out of makeup or needed a new outfit. I couldn't wait to go out at night to wear one of my new outfits, they all looked so good on me. Not long after we left topshop, we all started to get hungry so we went to nando's to get some food. I wasn't to hungry so i just got a salad and some water.

While we were eating, my mom wanted to get to know more about my social life back in America, what we did for fun, and if the anerican high schools in movies were really like that in life. "Back home i have alot of good friends, I like to think I'm someone fun to be around and that's why i have so many. I do have a lot more guyfriends though than i do girls. But only because i don't like to be involved in drama and that's almost like the package deal that comes with being friends with girls it seems like." I paused for a few seconds to get a drink of water. "What me and my friends do for fun is... Go to the movies, mall, bowling, pretty much like the normal hangouts but we also go muddin' and four-wheelin' and all that jazz. I'll have to show yall sometime how we have fun in kentucky." "Muddin'?" Julie asks a little confused. "Yes muddin'. It's when you either go four-wheelin or go in a truck or somethin and just drive around in the mud, it's alot of fun trust me! Or you can mud wrestle or have mud fights." I said thinking about how much i miss that. "But you NEVER wear anything you like, cause it'll get dirty so whenever we go just wear some old clothes that are all torn up and everything." "Oh sounds... Fun? I guess" my mom said. "Haha yes its a lot of fun. And with the high schools, pretty much everything you see in the movies is true except for the musicals. We have spirit week, homecoming, pep rallies, football games but american football not soccer, theres prom, graduation, just everything really and theres also alot of school spirit throughout it all." I said smiling also thinking about home and everything I'm missing out on with senior year. My mom must have known i was thinking about it cause she said "you're missing out on alot of fun stuff this year, aren't you?" "Yeah, it's hard cause there was senior night, senior dinner dance, senior prank, senior skip day, and of course the memories and graduation. But i keep telling myself that this doesnt happen to everyone and it's a once in a lifetime chance to go to england." I said with sad expression. "Well, you always have us to talk to you know that right courtney?" Natalie said trying to cheer me up. "Yeah i know and i wanna thank you for being my host family i love all you guys" i said leaning in for a hug.

Before i knew it, we had been at nando's for almost 3 hours! It was close to closing time and getting dark so we left and headed home. I went to my room smiling because I'm so happy to have been placed with this family and for the day i had with the girls, it was such a good time that I'll never forget with my second family.
