Hey there!
Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I'm Kristen & I'm so happy you've found me & my little blog :]

^^^this is typical me, acting crazy with a drink in hand

I blog about pretty much everything you can think of.
My life & the people in it, recipes, DIY crafts, & pretty much anything else that comes to mind.
I'm a little sarcastic. Okay.. scratch that. I'm way more than a little sarcastic, so you'll probably see that come out now & then.

I'm a twenty-two year old, loving life.
I'm in school right now pursuing a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, EC-6.
I would LOVE to teach first grade.
I love love love kids. They're amazing. They can make me happy no matter what kind of day I'm having. 
I have a passion for teaching & I cannot wait until I have my own classroom & I can teach every single day! :]

See that guy up there ^^^ ?
That's the love of my life, Darren.
Or as I like to call him: Deedsy, Deeds, El D or Babe.
(He likes to call me Shweets, Shweetikins, Kree & sometimes La Kree.)
We've been dating for quite some time.
A little over four years to be exact.
He's twenty-six & he will be graduating college this semester with a degree in Mathematics.
He honestly completes me & I am so lucky to have found him!
We are both equally smart, funny, witty, crazy & sometimes annoying, which makes us one-hundred percent perfect for each other.
We plan on getting engaged this year & married as soon as possible after that :]

We have a son.
Well, a fur son ;]

He's a pug & his name is Wrinkles. 
We love him more than anything.
Warning: you will see a million pictures of him!!!
Hope you like cute pugs ;]

A few of my likes:
country music
hosting events/get togethers

any form of potatoes except sweet

I love meeting new people so I hope you'll stick around for a while!
