Wardrobe: Stretchy pants with stirrups on the end. I truly thought those would never come back, but alas, I was wrong. Oh, and tall socks.
Books: Amelia Bedelia, Nancy Drew, Encyclopedia Brown (my first literary crush; I was soooo jealous of Sally), Hardy Boys and Boxcar Children, among thousands of others. I was homeschooled, AKA I read a lot.
TV shows: Family Matters, Boy Meets World, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Favorites: School, being outside and the Creswell Library
Crystal the Adolescent
Accessories: Big bangs & a True Love Waits ring
Wardrobe: Garage sale finds and anything from the Murphy Bag (it sounds like an upscale 2nd-hand boutique...just stick with that).
Books: anything by C.S. Lewis, Frank Peretti, Janette Oke and Ted Dekker
TV Shows: I barely watched any TV during this period. My life was so full of piano, school, work, church and family that I cannot recall watching anything other than sports.
Favorites: losing weight, getting straight A's, dreaming of college boys
Crystal the Childless Adult
Accessories: Hats and beanies, my wedding ring, peacoats!
Wardrobe: Because of the Idaho weather, here's how that went. In summer: as little as possible. In winter: as much as possible. In between: sundresses and anything that accentuates my small waist and rib cage and hides my not-so-small everything else.
Books: the classics. Biographies. Anything not related to the boring stuff my professors made me read.
TV shows: Friends, Frasier, Home Improvement, Golden Girls & Dancing with the Stars
Favorites: spending time ALONE with my husband, making last-minute plans and keeping them, playing board games late into the night with friends, no kangaroo pouch on my stomach, an insane volunteer schedule and making $.
Crystal with a Child
Accesories: a much bigger purse than I ever truly like, to serve double-duty as diaper bag and purse. Oh, and a nursing wrap (they come very trendily now, by the way).
Wardobe: anything that cleans well and still looks cute. Bonus: easy access for nursing.
Books: The Power of a Praying Parent & The Birth Order Book
TV shows: American Idol, Lie to Me and The Jay Leno Show
Favorites: snuggling, chubby thighs (not mine!), stolen date nights and vacations.
So what are your life stages?
