weekend update.


|| follow me on instagram for more snapshots! ||

RECAPS
-- we had some crazy storms here in the south last week. i spent a couple of nights hiding in the basement and listening to the weather waiting for the all-clear from tornadoes.

-- core group this week was spent staining and painting signs for abbey's wedding. i love that we get to do these projects together as a group in preparation for her big day! 6 days to go!!

-- i got to spend the weekend in knoxville with my college bestie. we stayed up late, talked about our lives, visited the farmer's market, went hiking, hit up starbucks for happy hour, and hung out with friends. it was just what i needed.

-- i am loving these longer days we are having, and that i actually get to watch the sunsets again. winter times make me sad because the sun sets while i'm still at work! so, yay summer!

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT YOURS TRULY
-- i have weird thumbs. they are short and stubby and sort of look like they belong on a gecko.
-- i cry when i'm excited about things. if i'm not between a 3 and 7 on the emotional scale, i'm crying. okay, okay. so it's not quite on the level of kristen bell, but it's the same concept. i get more teary-eyed rather than full on crying. for instance, one time i got so excited/overwhelmed talking to someone about narnia and how reepicheep is one of my favorite characters because of how much he loves aslan, that i had to wipe away tears. this is my life.
-- i can memorize songs and movie scripts like nobody's business. if only memorizing scripture came to me so easily...

"if i'm not between a 3 and 7 on the emotional scale, i'm crying." I'm the same way! And I think it get's worse as I get older. I cry all the time... about everything!

I always cry during running races and during the Olympics ... I just can't stop the darn tears. My family looked over at me during the winter Olympics and there I was bawling my eyeballs out. =)

Megan McIlvaine said...

Megan McIlvaine said...

Megan McIlvaine said...

aw thanks, katie! same here! i think if i could only keep one social media app, it would be instagram. it is my favorite. like a daily photo journal :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

me too, girl!! i didn't use to cry like this. and i definitely didn't cry in public...it was too embarrassing. now i cry/tear up wherever i am. haha! thankfully most of my friends understand ;)
