Still Alive... promise.

I really miss you blog, sorry I have been so despondent. Here are a few status updates to prove I am alive (and let you know what I am up to):

1)Have been travelling a lot lately, with work and also on the weekends. John and I went to Nauvoo last weekend and I will be in Dallas and Little Rock for the last two weekends of the month. Travelling is fun and I enjoy it-- but sometimes it wears you out!!

2) Because I am travelling I should be blogging twice as much. Lots of funny experiences and interesting people... Like the time I was desperately looking for the third Hunger Games book in Raleigh and ended up in a sex shop for homosexuals. They really should have clarified what the "Things" were in "Books and Things".

3) Did I mention I have been reading a lot? All of those nights in a hotel and on the plane. It is a nice change, I love reading. Lately I have finished "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave, the Hunger Games Saga by Suzanne Collins and Mitch Albom's "Have a Little Faith".

4) I paid of my highest interest loan!!!! (9.75%!! Scary!) This only marks about 1/8 of our loans being paid off-- but it still is an accomplishment. Getting out of debt (even good debt like student loans) is a long road! I have to celebrate the little milestones!

5) I am leading a big Christmas Workshop for my Church, so sadly (or gladly!) much of my blog energy has been shifted temporarily. You should check it out-- and if you are in the Ann Arbor area you should consider attending :)

Thats all for now. Hope to not prolong this blog hiatus. Hope all are well :)


  1. I'm glad you are alive and well, Kristin. Congrats on getting one of your student loans paid off - that's excellent! I hope to see you at some point, dear. Love ya!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! Things are finally starting to calm down around here and it's almost time for Christmas so it will get crazy again but for a minute, I have time to comment! I'm glad that you and John were able to go to Nauvoo, my mom and step-dad were missionaries there a couple years ago and they loved it. What did you think of the last Hunger Games book? I just finished it and have mixed thoughts. And I love all the class ideas for the Christmas workshop, you and Becky are amazing! So bummed I have to miss it. Our ward isn't doing anything, lame! You'd think out here it'd be a huge deal but not my ward. I'll just have to crash one of my sister's ward workshops. Hope you have a great time and we miss you!
