{I'm Just Not That Into You}

W.I.W(What I Wore):

Flats FB| Pants Thrifed| Cardigan and Shirt Old Navy| Necklace Icing

I love British shows and movies however I have not been into the whole Royal Wedding stuff. It is funny how much information you can retain about stuff that you're not into. Not just this, my 4.5 year old niece talks at me all the time (It is not a conversation because I can never get a word in. Ha.)...while I definitely love her, I just wish she would shut-up be quiet some times...I amazingly remember everything she tells me. I have retained so much info about the royals and the wedding that I have amazed myself by some of the comments I have made tonight. Like, one of the mini-bridesmaids is William's goddaugther...huh, I don't remember where I picked that up from...and truth be told, I could be lying. But I do recall that from somewhere...anyways...
The Wendy Williams show is coming on...gotta go..
Don't judge me!

{Please look away}

This is what I wore today...
Flats Rugged Warehouse| Jeans Old Navy| Striped Shirt & Tank Goody's| Cardigan IF|Purse Tommy Hilfiger

I am so ashamed that I find myself watching The Wendy Williams show everyday...I turn it on and half way through "hot topics," I say to myself "Really Crystal!" Its kind of a train wreck that I come back to watch everyday. Well, I can honestly says that I don't watch those guilty pleasure realityTV shows (Now that The Hills is no longer on.)...so I guess this is my dark secret. You know, just between me and you.

{What's In My Bag}

I think every blog I have read, there has been a "What's In My Bag" post...So when I did an exchange of a couple of my purses for this purse and another bag, I decided it was my time to do one. You know, before this bag starts collecting candy/gum wrappers, receipts, mail, spare change, etc.
I love how large this bag is.

{Starting from top left to right}
Walk for the Cure Calender (supporting a good cause)
Phone Charger (until I buy a charger to keep at work)
Headphones/Wireless headset
Aspirin
Crystal Light Drink Mix (Love the Cherry/Pomegranate & Raspberry Lemonade)
Orange Sapphire Anti-Bacterial Gel
Keys (& my numerous discount mini-cards)
On its last leg Umbrella (I've had it for about 4 months & got it from the Dollar Store...so I got my moneys worth)
Tommy Hilfiger Wallet (Thrifted from The Salvation Army for $1.25...half-off Tuesday)
Orbit: Cinnamint
CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint: Bare Mint (Bridesmaid gift from Latoya...I love it but I'm mad she got me hooked on it. Ha.)

Not Pictured Items:
Canon PowerShot SD1100 (A prize from work for outstanding performance...thank you, thank you. Ha.)
Halls (Original flavor[Love it]...I get major sore throats easily, so I try to treat them as quickly as possible.)
Netflix DVDs (It seems like I always have DVDs to return[Redbox/Blockbuster Express] or mail)
Jump Drive & 2nd Camera Battery

Blitz (My phone is not picture because it is never in my purse...I'm a little OCD with my phone (after freezing the last one to death by leaving it in the car overnight and half a day.)

{Good Friday}

My friends and I were off work on Good Friday, so we headed to Raleigh for the today...
(Kind of picture heavy)
yeah, it was a pretty dreary day...
First stop...Streets of Southpoint.
In Aldo...how awesome is this wedges????

A quick stop at Chick-fil-a for a kid's meal...

I had to run passed this candy stand to avoid temptation ...hence the blurry picture. Ha.

The bench outside of Anthropologie...

...and the expensive awesome measuring cups inside Anthropologie ($38).

In Francesca's...love the collection of crosses...I want that.

At this point we headed over to Crabtree Valley Mall...
...and found the perfect pair of oxford shoes (the all brown ones in the front) in Shi. I did not buy them though ($49)...Journey's has the same shoes in Fayetteville, so I'll get them there ($35).

I don't remember which store this is but I thought these signs were...interesting???

Had a late lunch in the food court...WELCOME TO MOE'S!!! (Love this place!)

Then we were off to The Cheesecake Factory...

They did not have my favorite (Carrot Cake Cheesecake)...so none for me.


A sad side not:
We had to say good bye to my dog Jade today. She had a almost-healed pelvis but other than that no issues...she was 13 though...
R.I.P.

{Un pasto costoso}

My childhood friend, Marilyn's Birthday was Saturday...so we had a little shopping day planned that day but it was cut short due to the massive storms/tornados that cut its way across North Carolina on Saturday. I thank God that my friends and family are safe but everyone was not so fortunate.

It is crazy how one house is completely destroyed while the house next door is fine.

Lighter Note:
As a continued celebration, we got together for dinner at Luigi's on Sunday. I had the grilled chicken salad...it was great but expensive. Therefore Luigi's rates pretty low on the Crystal List. I may have to publish that list one day...hmm...

{Come let us be baptized}

It was Baptismal Sunday...and this is what I wore to church. It was such a great day to not only gather together and thank God for keeping us safe on Saturday but celebrate the 35 people who give their lives to the Lord and were baptized. Since it was very much a relaxed day...this is what I wore.

Shoes: Lane Bryant| Jeans: | Tank: Old Navy| Blazer: SF| Bangles: Avenue| Necklace: Icing

{Ouch}

So...I wake up with a headache this morning and had 2 options (I have no aspirin in the house): 1. Go back to bed and sleep it off. 2. Get up and go on to church. I chose the latter and I'm glad I did. I absolutely LOVE my church family. I have been going to the same church for over 20 years...and while things/people/situations have changed over the years, I am so greatfully for them. FCC has never been one of those stuffy chruches where you have to act or dress a certain way. I could have rolled in there in some sweatpants (I have before) and would have been accepted with open arms by everyone...except for my mother, but that is a mom-thing. So I threw on some basics and went to church...and Saks...and the Redbox...and got an oil change...
hmm, I'm feeling better.

{The Lazy Song}

So...I was driving to work this morning and this song comes on the radio...
Yeah, I spent the last 10 mins of the drive debating whether I should call in and use a "sick" day...
I went into work however this song is definitely my theme song for this weekend.

Gosh...I feel horrible...

Hopefully this 44oz. of greatness will soothe my throat...And it was only $.96!
