Blog Remodel - About Me

I've had some things going on at home that have caused my inner worry wart and stressfulness to come out.  What better time than to dive right in this weekend and do some blog remodeling?  I know nothing about it.  AT ALL.  I just know I'm too broke to pay anyone to do it.  

But in the meantime I want to join in one of my favorite blogs, Sawdust and Paper Scraps About Me party.  She is amazing and I have Dan has, already copied one of her projects:
Not too shabby!
I'm Kristen - this is me on a good hair day: 
Which was 10 years ago, but I am totally still riding on that high.  

I am a wife to Dan (10 years this month!) whom I decided to marry the night of our first date.  Good decision.  We have three cutie tooties, Graham, 8 - Gregory, 6 and Lauren Bridgette, 3.  

I live 12 houses away from my mom and dad, (we built AFTER mom always wants me to make that disclaimer) and my life wouldn't work nearly as smoothly without them.  I have 1 brother, 3 brothers in law and 9 sisters in law.  I've lost count of the nieces and nephews.  There are a lot.

I love history and old houses.  I love thinking I am organized when it's a struggle for me.  I love Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., decorating and traveling.  Sadly I married a man who hates traveling so I'm stuck here in Utah 99.9% of the time. 

I am a wedding floral designer, garage sale lover, couponer (I am VERY frugal!) and as a native of Southern California, I have flip flop wearing in my blood.  
I am obsessed with sandwiches.  Love them. Might explain the reason why I have been on a diet since I was 8. 

Having a clean house, red and pink, Issy Miyake perfume, a trip to the craft store, iced mochas, peonies and gardenias are things that make me smile. 

I am a novice gardener, I love to cook, I'm overly sensitive and have WAY too high of expectations for situations and people.  
I'm not opinionated but I have better ideas. ;) I dislike rules.
Really, I forget sometimes, but while there are improvements I am always needing to make, I am truly blessed.

Even though I have known you since 3rd grade, I always love these little notes about you!
You didn't say:
You are a best, of best friends
you laugh so hard you cry
you make me know I can do hard things.

My favorite line:
I'm not opinionated but I have better ideas. ;)

HAHAHA me too :)

Kristen this is Great. I agree with above commenter, "I am NOT opinionated but I have better ideas" is hilarious. I connect with you here: "Overly sensitive and ...High expectations". I don't even know why I have tears in my eyes half the right now! It's ridiculous!!!

I absolutely LOVED getting to know you a little. Thanks for sharing!

I love your new descriptions of yourself! You are so cute! I like that you are always honest and real. I also am a sandwich lover. The combination of bacon, avocado, onions, and cheddar cheese will be my downfall!
