All About Me

Welcome to my blog! My name is Krissy. Here is a bit about me:

  • I am a native of Utah. I was raised in the small city of Price, a place which I have heard described as the "armpit of Utah." Despite its less-than-glamorous reputation and terrible education, Price was a good, safe place to grow up.
  • I am a Mormon, which is awesome! It means I have a great church community and a tight-knit family supporting me.
  • I majored in English Literature in college. I made my way around the state, attending CEU, then BYU, and finally USU, where I stayed because I got 175% tuition paid and could earn my English degree without having to learn another language. I tried French… quite unsuccessfully.
  • I love literature -- especially British lit. I dream of visiting and exploring the U.K. someday since I elected to get married instead of doing study abroad during my junior year.
  • I met my hubby Dave in September 2003 and we were engaged by the following January. It was the best decision I ever made. We were married in the Salt Lake Temple in May of 2004.
  • I am the mother of two adorable, sweet, and insanity-inducing kids -- a 6-year old boy named Eddie (who loves skeletons, army guys, and super heroes), and a 3-year old girl named Violet (who loves pretending, singing, dancing, and getting into trouble). In summertime, you'll find us digging for roly-poly bugs or rolling down hills. In winter, you'll find us having movie picnics in the living room. When I am blogging, I usually have at least one of them "helping" me.

Random Facts About Me

The phrase I use most often: "This might be a horrible thing to say, but…"

The scariest thing I ever did: ride in a small plane flown by my brother (this was also the first time I hyperventilated).

The weirdest thing I ever cried about: getting the rubber drain plug stuck in the sink drain.

The craziest dream I ever had: running alongside a train carrying zebras in hammocks.

The dumbest thing I ever did: lighting jack-o-lanterns on fire as a teenager (flaming jack-o-lanterns are not as exciting as you might imagine).


  1. Wow, Krissy! What an amazing "All About Me" page! This was my first visit to your blog and already I feel like I have such a strong sense of who you are. I especially loved the list of "random facts"...each one could probably be a blog post in and of itself, I'm guessing, and I also loved picturing you and your kids digging for bug and rolling down hills. What fun!

    I'm honored that my post helped inspired this revamp, and thank you so much for inviting me over to check it out. You rocked it, girl!
