Knowing that I had opted out of the Aggie game this weekend, Kyle decided to spend the night with his brother on Friday so that they could get to College Station early on Saturday. So, while Kyle was with Lance, Jill came to spend the night with me. What Jill and I thought was going to be a "Bridesmaids" DVD watching party, it turned out to be something much more elaborate.
Our "sister weekend" started with dinner and cocktails at the Black Walnut. We chatted about random sister stuff, and we started concocting some crafty ideas. We searched through some of our Pinterest pins, and we came up with some of our favorites (and easiest to do).

Although the taste level of some of our projects might be in question, we had a lot of fun planning, shopping, playing, and chatting. Not to mention, "Bridesmaids" and "Toddlers and Tiaras" served as our background noise and Le Peep and Papa John's provided the sustenance.
