Hi

Hi

My name is Kris and I am 22 (23 next month.) I currently live in Utah but have lived in Arkansas, Florida and England. I have been married for almost 3 years. I live in a (beautiful, spacious) townhouse that I am grateful for every day since I just spent a year living in a dark, teeny apartment that affected my mood more than I had realized! I have a 20 month old son, Toby and I am a stay-at-home mom to him. Due to health problems caused by my pregnancy, Toby is going to be an only child. We are also the servants of two cats :) My obsession of the moment... hmmm... I am really interested in learning Spanish right now and teaching Toby. I used to speak it pretty well and my dad is from Mexico (I am adopted) so you'd think I would be fluent, but I'm not and I want to be. My favorite guilty pleasure... I don't have just one! Spending time reading blogs/info on the Internets, knitting, and reading way too much probably are the top 3 :) I'm not sure what domestic activities entail... so my favorites are knitting, cooking, doing the laundry, and organizing and decluttering. I hate hand-washing dishes and whenever we have something that needs to be hand-washed my husband gets to do it. I'm also not a fan of changing diapers :) I would call myself a domestic apprentice... I know a little but have a lot to learn! But I'm not a total newbie. My favorite recipe is creamy tomato basil soup because it's easy and delicious! Here's the recipe and a random picture of my son and me for reference Creamy Tomato Basil Soup 2 cans Campell's tomato soup 1 can diced tomatoes 2 cans whole milk 1 cup heavy cream 1 tsp basil 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper Combine ingredients and stir to get rid of lumps. Simmer for 45 minutes, serve with warm bread. Mmmm!! And just kidding, I'd pretty much rather die than post a picture of myself, so here's a cute October-y picture of my beastie boy.
