A Dotted Experience

Another cold front blew its way through my little part of Texas again, and though it did not come with 10 inches of snow like it did in Minnesota did for Brynn, it did come with a ton of rain and wind. College Station, I swear, gets more rain than any other part of Texas. When I came down for college visits and to see Curtis before I came to A&M, it rained every time. I suppose they don't call it the Brazos Valley for nothing.. So, as the torrential down pour came, I had a bit of a hard time running to my car from my apartment with one water-fearing beagle, a backpack, and my umbrella - it probably was quite the sight to see. 

My mom bought me this lovely polka dotted dress at.. Wal-Mart. Since when do they actually make decent clothes? I have no idea. As a teenager, I wouldn't have gone near the clothing section in Wal-Mart, I was clearly too cool for all of that, ha. But, if I hadn't told y'all where this dress was from, you would've never guessed it was from there. I wore this when Curtis and I went on our little date Thursday evening to see 42. He even complimented me on my outfit as we were driving over to dinner. D'aww.

Okay, what is that face? haha
Once again, I'm wearing red lipstick. Told ya I'm obsessed. I just love the little touches of red here-and-there, and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite colors, which is so weird.. because I've been anti-red my entire life. The little bobby pin with the heart on the end is from ModCloth, they sent it as a little extra gift when I ordered a dress from them awhile back.. and I almost threw them away (it came with two), but I checked the box the dress came in one more time before I threw it in the dumpster. Thank goodness for my OCD self, they're so fun! ..I just wish I could order dresses from ModCloth more often, tehe. 

My weekend has been full of driving, writing, watching Justified, and more writing. Curtis and I made our way to Waco to finish up our last session of pre-marital counseling (yay!) on Friday evening, and turns out.. we're a pretty compatible couple, actually we're the most compatible a couple could possibly be, awesome! We did one activity in which we had to come up with different dates, so I think I'm going to start blogging about different ideas for dates for you and your husband (or boyfriend/fiance)..should be pretty fun! As for the writing part, I had to write two papers for one of my classes, it wasn't too bad, seeing as I actually like to write and don't get to do it very often anymore. Lastly, Curtis and I went a teeny bit crazy on the Justified watching marathon, five in one sitting..I think we're kind of obsessed. Plus, it was a fabulous procrastination tool.

Anyone else found a randomly awesome find in Wal-Mart, and you couldn't believe it? 
Happy Sunday!
