I've officially discovered my new favorite spot in the City. . .Crate and Barrel. I know, I know it sounds a little silly, but seriously, I love everything about this store. I was walking home from the gym last night and decided I'd take a quick look inside. They had a cute Christmas plate in the window, so I just figured what the heck I could use another holiday decoration. Walking through the doors was like entering a Sussie Homemaker paradise. A few of my favorites finds include a spatula with cupcake imprints, a candy cane shaped pan, recycled sari garland, tons of ornaments, and so many plates. Resisting the urge to buy it all was hard, and I ended up buying the cutest Christmas cup. Dancing elves and tiny snowflakes decorate its sides, but I think it was this super cute advertisement that sealed the deal. When I left the store, my wallet may have been a little lighter but I had a wonderful red bag filled with precious presents to show for it. But, I'm a little scared I may be addicted. After a full day of studying-I literally spent eight hours sitting in the same chair of Kimmel working on two paper-the only thing I wanted to do was eat a bowl of ice cream (even though it was 40º outside) and wander around Crate and Barrel. Obviously, I knew their merchandise wouldn't have changed from yesterday, but I needed to see their bright and colorful decorations just the same.
