I have re-written my about me section several times. And I am just going to be honest; I hate writing about myself. I am not sure what it is or why, but I always have a hard time with this. So instead of a typical explanation I thought I would just randomly tell you little pieces about who I am.
I love my family and friends; besides them I think animals can bring so much happiness to your life (especially cats; hi to all you cat lovers out there).
Here are our furry children:
I live with them and my boyfriend in the home we just purchased in the summer of 2012; it is a 1955 rancher that we are trying to bring up to date and make it feel like a home.
I believe in evolving as a person; I love education, learning, reading, and writing. I think everyone should be open to trying new things at least once in a while.
I cannot sit still, my mind is always going. When I do find a moment of solitude you will find me on the couch, possibly with a beer, watching one of my favorite television shows—you do not want me to list them because the list would go on forever. I love television and hate the fact that I do.
I can be super frugal. The only new and expensive thing we own is our sofa. Other than that, I like to purchase used furniture in order to revive it. I am fine buying a shirt from a thrift store. But, on the total flipside of frugality, if I see a shirt that is $50 and I am in LOVE with it (like, I cannot live without it) I will buy it.
I have dumpster-dived before, which embarrasses my boyfriend.
I love visiting haunted places; towns, buildings, you name it. My sister, who I want to be when I grow up, and I have gone to Tombstone (totally haunted) and Jerome (creepily haunted), both places are in Arizona where I used to live before coming home; and we had the time of our lives. In fact, I think Tombstone has to be one of my favorite trips ever. That says a lot for a girl who studied overseas for a semester.
My blog is small. Like, tiny. But I love each and every comment I receive and cannot believe I have a little over 100 followers. I literally almost cried when I saw that. I would love to have my blog be larger in order to inspire others, especially women. I follow a ton of DIY blogs and cannot believe the impact that they have; they empower, build confidence, connect others and build relationships. One day.
We are typical Montanans. I come from a camping, fishing, and hunting family. All of those things I LOVE to do (besides hunt- I just can’t do it).
Although I am a true Montana girl at heart, I love girly stuff: dressing up, putting on make-up, and wearing heels can be fun; however I do cherish my sweatpants and messy bun.
I was a roller derby girl for about a year.
I know. I look back and think about how much I miss it, and then my stomach immediately churns with anxiety thinking about getting back on the track. I loved it and still do, but I think my roller derby days are over.
That is actually how I met this guy
He saw me on the track at a bout (the official word for a roller derby ‘game’)…and that was it for him. We have been together ever since. Love him.
And, of course, I love DIY projects and decorating. This is a world that I have just recently become passionate about, especially since purchasing our house. And that is what this
blog is all about; sharing a little piece of my world, mistakes and all.
My name is Christina, but my friends and family call me Chrissy.
Thank you so much for reading!
