My name is Kirsten, I'm 24, and live in California. I've been here most of my life and it's pretty much a love/hate relationship. I've also lived in Washington, England, Maryland and Tennessee, but somehow I ended up back here!
I've worked at Target, a hospital in medical records, a few other odds and ends, and Bath & Body Works. My most recent job, before what I'm doing now, was doing clerical work for a temp agency. When that job was over, the puzzle pieces fell in and I am now a stay at home nanny for two wonderful boys.
I love love love cooking and baking, and I'm going to start poking around healthy baking recipes. Experimenting with cooking is a struggle since I live in a house of picky eaters (glare). I still do my best to provide and share with everyone!
I'm awfully crafty - there isn't an art or craft I've tried that I haven't enjoyed. I watercolor, sew, crochet, knit, draw... and I love reading! With kids running around it's a little harder to keep my head in the clouds, but I'm doing my best to get into the swing of things again. I consider experimenting with beauty products and make up to be an art. Not only can it be beautiful but it can be a huge confidence booster. It also doesn't take as much investment as painting or yarn craft... and is harder for little hands to get into and mess up.
I'm a gamer! I've played MMORPGs for most of my life. Right now I'm absorbed in making my town perfect in Animal Crossing. I can't wait to get my hands on Borderlands 2, and I'm a little pissed that Kevin has the XBox so that I can't Skyrim during someone's nap time. I'm currently taking a break from Lord of the Rings Online to pursue blogging and couponing.
Speaking of which... I love saving money and making things more efficient. I'm not an "extreme couponer", mostly because it's near impossible in California. And, while I love good deals, being able to get 30 tubes of toothpaste doesn't really get my gears turning. I do a lot of meal planning and deal finding.
I am also completely honest and not shy or ashamed about anything! If you have any questions or want me to make a blog post about anything, drop me a line. I'd be more than happy to answer and/or share to the world my opinion on the matter. :) Leave a post on my blog, contact me through Facebook or Twitter, use the e-mail link on the right, or just this e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to hear from you!
