Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? In general we kept things pretty low key, but some highlights included lunch at Blue Line on one of the most beautiful fall days, celebrating my dad’s birthday with a homemade meal and family, and a Sons of Anarchy marathon with Mike and the pup. For a person who hates violence and motorcycles in just about anything she watches, I cannot believe I got hooked to this show. Trust me, I’m a reality tv junkie, Live with Kelly and Michael kinda person, so the fact that I watch, blows my mind. Does anyone else watch?

Also, I want to thank you for all your comments last Friday. Your feedback has been extremely helpful and I can’t wait to add some of your ideas to the blog. I’ve always thought my budget friendly finds were a bit boring, but come to find out, you all love them! Thanks again for stopping by everyday and being such loyal readers/friends.

    Lola looks adorable in her little Halloween costume! It looks like you had an amazing and perfect weekend girl! :)


  3. Courtney November 4, 2013

    Obsessed with SOA! I thought the same thing too, that the violence and whole biker thing wouldn’t entertain me but I was wrong. I’ve been a loyal Jax Teller fan for 3 years now ;)

    • Crystalin November 4, 2013

      OMG, yes! Jax is so not my type, but he’s totally growing on me and I think he’s hot lol :). We need to have lunch and talk about SOA!!!

      • Courtney November 5, 2013

        Yes please! I’m thinking soon we’ll run into each other in downtown Campbell randomly. I swear I see you post stuff in your weekend updates and think “wow I was there too.”

    LOL, your comment about the style of TV shows you watch made me giggle because that was like me with Breaking Bad. I was not the type of person that TV show was geared towards but there I was, hooked. =)

    Love your weekend shots. Lola is so stinkin’ adorable. I swear.

    Yay we’re gold iPhone twins!! WOO! But, at this point, any upgrade for me was going to be a happy one. haha


    • Crystalin November 4, 2013

      haha, I’m glad I’m not the only one watching crazy tv lol. I was in the same boat. I love the gold iphone (obvs), but i was due for any upgrade :)

    Your weekend recaps make me hungry! You always seem like you’re eating such a yummy variety of foods! Love the layered outfit you styled to take your pup for a walk. Great recap!

    • Crystalin November 4, 2013

      Thank you! :)

    My dog has the same costume! I justified buying it to my husband because it’s a harness and costume in one, lol.

  7. Christine B. November 4, 2013

    I had Blue Line this weekend too! I’m also hooked on SOA. They’ve definitely found a magic way to get people who would never normally like this genre to become obsessed. I’m one of many of my friends who love the show, but shouldn’t given our other tastes in shows/movies.

    Ooh Lola is so cute…

  9. Bettina November 4, 2013

    LOLA, my fave pics!

  10. Jenna Losé November 4, 2013

    Looks like a great weekend! Haven’t seen Son of Anarchy, but I’ve heard its great. I’m currently obsessed with Scandal. Very likely one of the best shows ever!

  11. Jan P November 4, 2013

    We love low key weekends. :)
    We’re often in Campbell but have yet to check out Blue Line (it’s bookmarked though!). How do you like it in comparison to Pizza Antica? Or Pizza Bocca Lupo from SPSquare?
    We’re also huge SOA fans (helps that a lot of our friends and coworkers watch it too). I’m curious to see where this season takes us, as some of the older seasons have been much more exciting.

    • Jan P November 4, 2013

      Oh, and FX shows are really, really great (with the exception of The Bridge).

    • Crystalin November 5, 2013

      The pizza is good, but different from the traditional Italian pizza from PA and PBL. I LOVE italian style, so my favorite has to be Pizza Bocca Lupo. It’s a super cute place though, I highly recommend you stop by :)

  12. Gaby November 4, 2013

    I really need to pick up a pair of those leggings!!

  13. Niki November 5, 2013

    Aww Lola looks like such a sweetie! Happy birthday to your dad!

  14. Elizabeth // The Now November 5, 2013

    What a cute little pumpkin!!!!!! OK I am becoming obsessed with sneakers!! I want those Golden GOose ones but they are like $500 so I think I may just get a pair of Adidas’. They’re basically the same shape. xoxo

    Wooo! No more hand me down phone! We’re twinsies! :)

  16. Jennifer November 19, 2013

    Adore your blog and I adore your style. Zara FTW! And the Pashli is such a staple, I love how you incorporate it into so many looks! Your Weekend snaps are one of my fav posts! Keep it up girl :)
