I Am Who I Am, Part Deux

And guess what? Still not looking for approval!

I re-read what I wrote last week and realized that there is more to me than just sports. It really made me look like a major tomboy. But, that’s not true. While I will admit that I am a part tomboy, there are other layers to me.

Some may say that I am not girly girl at all. That is the furthest thing from the truth. I can 99% assure you that if I didn’t have all the kids right now and more money to spend on me, I would be girly girl. I did walk into one store last year and spend $500 on clothes for me. I did at one time have hundreds of dollars of makeup. I love jewelry and have seen several sites I could spend a small fortune on right now. I like going to the salon and getting my hair done. I love getting manicures and pedicures. I used to get my nails done every other week. I love going to the tanning bed. But, right now with all the kids and their needs wants, there is no extra money left for me. I dream of the day I can be so high maintenance again. Maybe once I finish college, I can be….

And shoes and purses? Do you realize how many I could own if I had the money? I would have a closet full of just shoes and purses. Right now I own 1 purse! Just one and I so desperately want a new one. I bought this one last year when I first got to Louisiana. It had two of my favorite things on it: the Fleur-de-lis and the color pink.


Now, for anyone who wants further verification that I am a girly girl who just happens to love sports, here is a Crystal Fact. Crystal Fact: Crystal's favorite color is and has always been PINK! Below is exhibit A: my pink laptop, my pink headphones, my pink phone, my pink flash drive and my pink Nintendo DSi.
