I ❤ rainstorms.

Eeeeeeeeeee! Thunder and lighting and rain, oh my!
Rain has finally made an appearance here in Austin.
Let's jump up & down for joy!
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love sunshine and being able to tan everyday...
But a few showers here and there are truly desired.

We were getting a little bummed out not getting any rain.
The lake levels are dismally low, which means no jet skiing or boating,
which means no fun at the lakey lake,
which means unhappy campers!

It rained the last couple of days and we had a downpour on Wednesday.
Each day/night, me, Zach, and our little furbaby Felix sat on the balcony.
We watched the ominous clouds roll in and waited in anticipation for the booming thunder
after each strike of lightning.
We listened to Pandora and laughed at Felix while he stuck his head out in the rain
pointing it up to the sky, trying to snap at all the rain drops.
There's nothing better than Kid Cudi and a silly furbaby playing in the rain. :)
The Kid Cudi station really is the best.
Listen to it!
You'll love it. Promise. :)

On Thursday after all the rain, we kicked it poolside!

A few days ago Zach finally showed me the proper way to throw a football.
Now that I'm a pro, we did plenty of pigskin tossing and basking in the glorious sunshine.
This morning I woke up thinking I slept on my arm for too long.
But then I remembered yesterday and realized why my whole upper arm is sore!
But it was a blasty blast and so worth it.
No pain, no gain, right?
Gotta get my spiral swag on! ;)

I'll have to remember to get someone to snap a pic of us throwing the football next time.

Happy Friday loverrrrrrs!
