Rainy Day Activities

I'm not going to lie, when I woke up this morning I was less than impressed that the forecast read rain and thunderstorms. With it being my day off, I was pretty bummed it was going to be rainy all day. Typically on my days off I don't waste a second sitting inside the house. I'm always out, whether I'm hiking, wandering around New England or checking out new restaurants/coffee shops with Dustin, we hate sitting inside on the couch. I dread the days where I'm forced to stay inside, I'm just not the kind of girl that can sit around not being productive. Rainy days are just not my thing sometimes, and that's exactly why I'm sharing a list of fun, productive things anyone can do on rainy days.
