A rainy crafty weekend..

First off, I want to thank everyone for their sweet words about sharing my story on Friday. I'm overwhelmed with the love and support. It means the world! God is good and I'm going to get through this and if you're in the same boat as I am, I have NO DOUBT you will too. Press on dear friend, press on... 

So College Station is known for raining a lot but man alive.. Patricia put CSTAT in for a doozy! Like a crazy person I took my rain boots to get an adorable emblem put on them right before the storm so I made it through the weekend in combat boots and tennis shoes. Cray cray you could say. My Friday night started off with my gal pals at a Paint and Pottery Studio. I love crafts but can never seem to execute them well. I always end up frustrated and quit. Well my rainy craft weekend was SO successful I'll be dedicating a whole post to one of them. ;) 

For those that know me well, I don't make decisions super fast. It's kind of a struggle. I wrestle. Go back and forth. Finally when I convince myself, I make the decision. You can imagine with all the options at paint-and-pottery, deciding what to paint was quit the dilemma. After 20-25 minutes (yes that long) I decided to paint coasters! I'm all about practical and I love coasters thanks to my sweet friend, Emily who gave me a set of coasters for Christmas. Once deciding on what to paint I have to choose colors, another decision. Ugh. lol but so fun! I made the decision to go for the Aztec look. They turned out pretty well. I'm quite proud I'll say. I get them back Thursday and I'll definitely have to post an IG pic of my personally designed coasters. Here's some pics from the night!


Before! 




After!
Our whole group minus Delaney!

Saturday we planned to see the Intern and I decided to decoupage a pumpkin, I was obviously in the fall spirit. It was raining cats and dogs.. kinda crazy but we braved it and saw the Intern and I'm SO glad we did. If you haven't seen it. GO. It's probably one of my all time favorite movies now. I was soaking wet the entire movie thanks to the torrential downpour that took place while running through the parking lot, but that's okay, I survived.

After getting soaked we knew a selfie was necessary!
I was so wet in the soaking wet theater that I needed a coffee to bring my body back to room temp ;) JK it wasn't that bad, but still..
Like I said above, go see the Intern! 

I will share a sneak peek of my pumpkin because I just can't stand it. I'm in love with it! I can't wait to share my fun fall project with y'all later this week!

Get excited, the final product is FABULOUS. At least in my world. ;)

I finished off my weekend with a Sunday at work, in the rain and cold for 6 hours, I survived that for real. lol Then finishing with football (the Cowboys disappointed me yet again), some spreadsheet work, and of course a little bit of homework. Goodbye to another weekend. Hello another week! Cant wait to spend Halloween at home! Cheers to surviving another week friends, we got this! For those in college, we're halfway there and about a month out from Thanksgiving! Keep pressing on!!
