Jewelry Sale!

Hey everybody!
I know some of you still haven't made the switch over to my shiny new blog, but I didn't want you to miss out on this.

That's right. I'm talking to you. :) jk. I had the following conversation with my sister, Lindsay.

L: I read your blog on Michael Buble. It looks like you had a really great time!
K: Why don't you comment on my blog anymore? Is it scary because it's "big" now?
L: Yeah. It's scary because it's big. Lame, huh?
K: Super lame.

So, I'm here to clarify. I am still the one writing our lives up on It's me. Kristin. The one who also writes this blog. That blog is an effort to simplify my life a little bit. Updating 3 different blogs on a regular basis is a sure fire way to pull your hair out/go grey/get wrinkles at an early age and no one likes that. Smooshing them all together was my solution, thus, callmekristin was born. And Blogger doesn't have the ability to do that as well/easily as I wanted. So now my blog is on wordpress [for those of you who asked]. It's not scary. and I'm afraid of losing contact with all of you just because the URL switched. :(

Your comments mean a lot to me. I mean it. So please don't be scared of my "big" blog anymore. It's still a blog. and it's still us. If you want to just stay up to date on the happenings of C&K, just click on the far left circle in the header. It'll automatically weed out all the stuff you don't want to see.

Freezer Cooking Day!

 Image courtesy of Luxury Housing

So, my next freezer cooking day is right around the corner. I'd like to do a post to help you plan your own freezer cooking day, so please post your questions in the comment box. Since I'm about to do my big shopping and cooking days, I'll be able to provide the best answers complete with pictures. If you have a recipe you'd really like me to convert to a freezer cooking one, post it too! & I'll post my results along with the conversion recipe. I know I haven't posted most my own personal recipes, yet. But that's because I'm in the process of changing websites. :) The unveiling will be soon. I want all those recipes to be on the new site, so they'll be coming QUICK once the switch is made. [Which is hopefully by this weekend.]

So ask away!

My New {Favorite} Hobby!

***For those of you wondering where the recipes are for freezer cooking, I haven't forgotten! They're coming! Also, I apologize for the lack of a cute header. I'm not only lacking the cute header, but any and all creative inspiration for one: sooo, we wait for my creative mojo to come back.***

So, when I did our freezer cooking for February, Cameron's only complaint was that we didn't have enough snack food. I decided that in March, that would be different. Although, we absolutely HAD TO stick to our budget. I did my research, and found some great deals on YUMMY snacks.

I found a coupon online for $1 off Keebler's new Cheesecake Middles cookies...and printed five of them. One of my favorite blogs told me that these cookies were also a part of a Buy 5 get a $5 giftcard back. So, we went to Target where that blog also told me that the Cheesecake Middles cookies were on sale for $2.25. Here's how it went down:

We grabbed 5 packages of the Keebler Cookies: total $11.25. Used 5 $1 off coupons. Total: $6.25. Got a $5 giftcard back, which brings the total to $1.25 or $.25 a box! I then handed the giftcard back to Cameron, who had 4 boxes of Wheatables and 4 $1 off coupons.

Basically, we got 9 things of snack food for $6.

After that, we found Gold Medal flour on sale for $1.50. I had six $.75 off coupons. We got 30lbs of flour for $4.50. And then we decided to try to opt out of our recently renewed costco membership. [lol.] 
My favorite trip happened today, though. We got all this: 

for less than $4!

Without coupons and rebates, my total was: $56.49!
I saved over 92%! 

2 Old Spice Body Washes
2 Old Spice Deodorants
1 John Freida Shampoo
1 John Freida Conditioner
1 John Freida Hair Spray
4 Biore Face Washes
A New Eye Shadow Compact

I did 3 different transactions.
John Freida products were 3 for $15.
I used 1 $3 off of $15 Rite Aid coupon
2 $3 off any John Freida Product
1 $1 off Root Awakening Product
and I'm submitting for a $5 SCR on Rite 
Total: FREE [plus $.82 tax]

Transaction #2: 
Old Spice Stuff
I used another $3 off $15 Rite Aid Coupon
I also had 2 coupons for buy a deodorant get a body wash free
Then I used a $1 off of 2 deodorants
I tacked a 75% off eye-shadow onto this transaction which made the total 6.06
I'm submitting this for another $5 SCR on Rite
Total: $1.06 [because of the eye-shadow, otherwise this would be FREE too!]

Transaction #3:
I had a coupon for free biore cleanser with the purchase of nose strips. They were on sale 2 for 10 and I bought 4 bringing the total to 20. I used 1 $5 off of $20 coupon from Rite Aid's video values coupon site. Then I used 2 FREE cleansers with purchase of nose strips coupons. They also had cleansers with a save $2 on 2 peelies, so I used one of those, which brought my total to $4.03, but I'm submitting for a $2 SCR on Rite
Total: $2.03

All total:.82 + 1.06 + 2.03 = $3.91

Worth it.
I'll definitely be doing this again. :)

I'm whooped.

This is our freezer.

It is currently the only orderly part of our kitchen [and maybe our house. maybe.]
What is that IN our freezer?

Well, it just so happens to be 37 meals. 
All made today. 

I did this last month too, but didn't post about it because I was so dang tired that I didn't know if I'd actually do it again. The pros definitely outweighed the cons, though, so here I am after month two of 
"OAMC" or

[The milk is there because there were tons of sales this month and if you can get 4 gallons of milk for a buck a piece, you'd freeze it too. According to the internet, skim milk freezes best, so it's lucky that's all we eat anyway!]

And for those of you who are wondering, the food is delicious! (and nutritious) And makes for great leftovers the next day. I honestly don't know how people live without OAMC. I can't count how many times I've come home from work with absolutely no desire to cook anything. In the past we'd just go out. However, now when I come home and have no desire to cook anything, I don't have to. I grab a meal, throw it in the oven and put a batch of rice in the rice maker. 5 minute dinner that tastes like you've been in the kitchen all day. 

Perk #2: you do dishes ONCE. wow. [that should really read Cameron does dishes once, let's not kid ourselves.] The rest of the month, the most there is to wash is 2 [or 4 if there's company] plates, cups and silverware. Awesome. 

A lot of people have hang-ups about how much it costs to do this or how making multiples of meals gets old after a while, or how long it takes. To clear that up, we spent $130 yesterday shopping for today. We got 37 dinners, lunch meat, tons of snack food [including star wars fruit snacks...they were on sale and when you marry a jedi, he stays a jedi.], new ink cartridges, and stuff for root beer floats. It's not like we're impoverished.  Also, here's the calendar for our meals: 

 You can see that most of the time, we have 2 of each meal: tops! And in all honesty, they don't get old. We've got mexican to italian to american to chinese. It's gonna be a yummy month! Quite often, we're excited for each meal to come back around. 
Also, the how long it takes... welp, I've found that it takes approximately 90 seconds longer to make 2 lasagnas than it does 1. Personally, I think the 90 seconds is worth it. It's totally your call though. :) It also depends on what kind of meals you're doing. Last month, I was able to go shopping and make all our meals in the same day. I was exhausted, but the actual cooking time was 3 hours. A few of the recipes are chopping chicken and throwing it in a ziploc bag with it's marinade. 5 minutes and you have tender juicy chicken for 3 different nights that month.

I've decided that instead of baby shower gifts, I'd much rather come do this for my friends right around their due date. I figure 30 meals is better than 1, even if they're in charge of throwing it in the oven. So, that was my saturday in a nut shell. :) I'm off to shower, write a talk, and hit the temple with my man. 

And somewhere in there I'm making dinner. 
Cameron's favorite: poppyseed chicken : isn't a freezer recipe, so we have to have it on the big cooking day when I'm in the kitchen anyway. I figure at only having it once a month, it'll stay a favorite for quite a while. 

O! and if you want any of the recipes, let me know! I'll be happy to post the ones people are interested in! 

And, in other news. I'm opening my digi scrap shops on Thursday. I just finished a kit inspired by none else than my gorgeous sister Jessica. While I'm sharing, I might as well post this too. :) 


Happy Saturday!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Since our office went from 102 employees to 38 almost 2 weeks ago, I've taken on a lot more responsibility than I was in the past. I've also spent a lot of time getting my stuff together to start selling digital scraps in my shop. It's definitely taken some getting used to. It mostly means that I'm exhausted and barely have the energy to pull myself out of bed in the mornings. Thus, this blog is text based and not picture based. I don't know where the camera is, nor do I have the motivation to edit or scrap the pictures. However, we did have a fabulous Valentine's Day weekend.

Friday, we went up to West Valley to babysit Emilee and Adam's 4 adorable kids. For those of you who don't know about my amazing sister-in-law, she has a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old and twin 3 month old boys. Every single time I go over to her house it is spotless, she's showered and looking wonderful, the kids are happy, etc. I have no idea how she does it and I admire everything about her. One time I went over, the 3 youngest were taking naps and she was sitting in the kitchen teaching her 4-year-old to write her letters. I honestly love spending every minute I can at their house. She's so inspiring to me. :) [love you, em!]

Me and Cam spent a few hours keeping the kids happy and teaching the girls about the Olympics while watching the opening ceremonies. It was awesome to teach the girls about where each team was from and hear their excitement when they understood that this big "party" with "dancers" was where their Uncle Jared is on his mission. [Well...Canada. :)] I love those kids, and love playing house, and love giving Adam & Em some time to themselves.  [Call us any time!!]

We spent the night at Adam & Em's house and enjoyed a yummy late pancake breakfast. I love sleeping in. [Happy Valentine's Day to Me!] We got ready and did sealings at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. My sister, Lindsay, has been incredible at family history and had prepared a few sealings for us to do. I love that temple. There is nothing like being there with the man I love. I feel at home. I feel safe. And I believe in the truth of the work that goes on there with all of my heart.

We went home and Cameron sent me upstairs to get ready to go out while he made dinner. I took my sweet time and came down to roses, candles and a tablecloth made out of the blanket we ate on at the picnic where Cam proposed to me. It was beautiful. We had sun chips, pastrami sandwiches with cranberry mustard, and spinach salad with candied walnuts and poppyseed dressing. Y-U-M. The man knows me way too well. To make it even better, he started a playlist with songs from when we got engaged: including...Michael Buble singing "I'm Beginning to See the Light" which was performed at the Mo-Tab concert we went to that night. And which concert he will be taking me to on March 31st. I love that man.

At dinner we exchanged gifts. Cameron quickly explained to me that he got "completely suckered into buying" mine. Lol. He's so cute. However, he was right. It was exactly what I wanted. I really hate my hands. They're just not very pretty. I also hate nail polish [unless it's on my toes!] and Cameron got me a manicure set with the buffer, hand cream, cuticle oil, etc. To make it even better he got me the most luxurious body butter, EVER. It's incredible. And that's saying something coming from the girl whose bathroom cupboard looks like Bath & Body Works. I got him a shirt made by one of my favorite etsy shops ever. He really likes windmills. In fact, he acts like a toddler whenever we drive by one. It was one of the first times I felt myself falling in love with him. The shirt is dark grey with this distressed image of three windmills across it. I love it. :)

We left dinner for Divine Comedy and laughed to the point of tears. They did a comedy show on Harry Potter 6 and it was absolutely hilarious. :)

Sunday was my turn. I made a lemon pepper pork roast [thank you, Hormel] with candied carrots [thank you, Mom] and potatoes. I gained wife of the year status when I pulled a reese's peanut butter dessert out of the fridge. :) We shamelessly ate the entire thing and played Milles Borne. If you haven't played it, look it up! I highly recommend it.

Hope you all had a wonderful V-Day. :)

Here's to a relaxing weekend. [Tomorrow's Friday!]

Humble Pie with 2 extra scoops of blessings

Where to start. . . . .

Today was a doozey. We flew to Denver on Thursday to meet our cute new niece. The weekend was wonderful & really helped me get over the fact that me and Lindsay are so far apart. We headed to the airport to catch our 7:20 flight and found out that the snow was going to delay our flight 2 hours. yuck. We found a quiet corner in the airport and watched Office re-runs until our flight was ready for boarding.

After we landed and Adam Beck the saint came to pick us up, Cameron's phone goes off. It says that I'm calling him. I've been known to pocket dial once or twice, so I started scrambling through my purse. He picks up and says hello, and a flight attendant notifies him that I've left my plane on the phone. awesome.

Cam ran back to get it and off we went, later and later. After a nice needed chat with Adam and Emilee we headed home. We got to bed a little after 1 am.

This morning we were exhausted. bleh. Cam left for school and I dragged myself out of bed for work. I got there and sat down to check my e-mail. The CFO walks straight up to my desk and asks if he can have a minute to speak with me. I follow him back to his office and he asks me if I've talked to anyone since Friday. I hadn't [Denver]. He then starts into this explanation of how on Friday, 60% of the company was fired and how the company is going a new direction. [Start to panic]. He explains that in the course of the day, even my boss was fired and my entire department. Then, he asks me if he can see a list of what I plan to work on this week. [I STILL HAVE A JOB!]

The office was eerily empty. I'm now 1 of 2 women working there. The other is a sales manager. I sat in on meetings about how to get into other people's e-mail accounts who were once in my division so I could pull information off. I was visited by the CEO and asked how I felt about becoming an executive. And then I texted Cameron in a panic.

It was so sad. The guy that worked right next to me doesn't know he's been fired yet, because he's on paternity leave. His wife just quit her job to have the baby. I just feel terrible. and grateful. and shocked. I've only worked there for 2 months and they keep me and fire my superior of 6 years?? Throughout the day I would be working on projects and need some information from someone else, I'd then ask someone around if so-and-so were still with us. Most of the time it was "no." Every "no" meant I picked up more responsibility.

I don't know if or how I'll be able to do everyone's work on my own, but the execs are willing to take a chance on me, so I'm going at it full force!

And that was the first slice of humble pie.

Then, I came home and did Plyometrics P90X with Cam, for the first time. I made it 40 minutes in [with severely modified versions of most exercises].

And that was the second slice of humble pie.

Finally, I found out today that I'm going to be a contributor for and a designer for

I don't understand why God sees fit to bless me so much in a time of struggle. It humbles me and reminds me that I am not in control of my own life. I know I definitely didn't do anything to secure my job at Marketecture. I wasn't even there the day they made the cuts! I'm still in my 3 months of probationary employment. But the CEO assured me today that I'd be there until we move to Iowa. I've applied to design for a lot of different shops and been rejected quite a bit. Today, of all days, I get an e-mail saying I'd "be a delight" to work with and that they're impressed with my "eye for design" and one of my favorite blogs wants me to contribute content for them?

I am sufficiently humbled. [and so grateful!]

And Cam beat me soundly at every stinking game we played over the weekend.



& blessed.

A year in review & our new place!

And yes, we're only kissing in 3 of the months. :) Someone asked me the other night how married life was. I said it was great and that we'd celebrated our one year anniversary just a few weeks ago. She looked completely aghast and said "you didn't!" I reassured her that we had, in fact, celebrated our one year anniversary on January 2nd. She proceeded to compliment me because we have not yet lost that "newlywed glow." One year down, forever to go! I hope we keep the newlywed glow as long as possible!


Also for your viewing pleasure, here's a pic or 2 of our new place! They're not cutely scrapped yet, but I'm excited to show them to you! 

My happy wall in the kitchen :) 
Frames were each $1 at DI and we painted them. The clock was $13 at Target. I'm still trying to figure out what to put in these frames. . . I'm thinking lots of eggs and birds pictures :) Or perhaps apple trees to go with the apples in the basket? What do you think?


First thing I made after graduating. I've had a lot of creative energy that's been suppressed for the past 21 years of my life! You can't really see it, but the brown fabric has a gorgeous floral pattern. Very subtle but it's what sold me on it! Bedding is next on the to-do list. :) 

This is in our kitchen...Sorry I'm too lazy to rotate it. We found that chandelier in a box at DI for $4. I got super excited and Cam told me there was NO way we were going to buy it. It was a nasty gold color and none of the pieces were put together. It was really a long shot that it would even turn on. A few coats of spray paint later and some DIY electric work by the one and only Cam the Handy Man and it turned on! Needless to say we're thrilled. :) 


Here's a picture of the piano in all it's gorgeous red glory. It fits nicely in our living room nook. You can see some scrapes along the front...It really took a lot to get it in the apartment! Thank you to EVERYBODY who helped me get this from Logan, store it, paint it, transport it, etc. There are about 20 of you. This was Cameron's Christmas present this year. And I have to say, it is the sweetest thing to hear him play. It sounds like a dream and Cam sure is happy to have the real thing :) 

Hope everyone is doing well!

#21 - #24 [more lillie!]

My baby present to Lillie is putting together her baby book. These are from blog posts Lindsay wrote during the pregnancy. I've got quite a bit of work ahead of me!

Liilie Moore (#20) :)


:) Be on the lookout for a 7-page scrap-blitz on the beautiful Lillie Moore!

my love. i snapped these pictures on our way home from Emilee’s in the summer of 2009. There is so much “you” crammed into these two tiny pictures. I love them. 1. your car. that little beamer is about to die, but you love it to death. It’s so fun to play “teenagers” with you and drive with the top down. 2. your tennessee hat. I love how much you loved your mission. It’s a great comfort to me to know that you served happily and honorably for two whole years. You’ll be a great example to our kids. 3. the sunglasses. they’re so awesome, you’ll make a special effort to put your contacts in just so you can wear them when you drive max (the beamer). 4. The picture from California. It’s been there since we were dating. A wonderfully immature reminder of the day we first said “i love you.” 5. Your wedding ring. I love LOVE seeing that ring on your finger. I love that you are mine. that you always will be.

9 & 10

Getting married in the wintertime makes finding an apartment for a married couple just a little bit harder. It was pretty slim pickin’s. We tried to stay in our price range, but the stars of newlyweddedness blinded me good. I walked into this apartment and saw the cute little kitchen and hardwood floors and fell in love. I didn’t care that there weren’t any walls, that it was grossly overpriced and that our landlord was a jerk. Most importantly, I didn’t pay attention to the horrible feeling I had when we went to sign the lease. Cameron, wanting to please his soon-to-be wife, ignored the same horrible feeling and we signed a two year lease so the landlord would hold the apartment for us until we got married. That was the beginning of our trouble. We loved the apartment for about, oh, six weeks. Then we started noticing the couples around us paying a hundred dollars cheaper for bigger, nicer apartments that were closer to campus. We wanted to move to a better place, but when we told our landlord we were interested in selling our contract, he put forth all of these ridiculous terms. Basically, he wanted over $2,000 from us poor college kids. We decided to man up and make the best of the situation. It was super small, but it was ours. We made it beautiful. I loved cooking dinner and watching Cameron come through the door, just like I’d always dreamed about as a little girl. It didn’t matter where we were. We were together and we were married and that was never going to change. There were a lot of firsts that happened in that apartment. We learned to laugh at having to sit on barstools when the home teachers came over. We planted blackberry bushes on our balcony. We turned the TV around in our makeshift wall to watch movies in our “bedroom.” We painted the kitchen yellow. We bought a grill for the balcony and made burgers all through the summer. We both worked 2 jobs to make ends meet. The most important thing, though, that came from the ridiculous terms of our landlord was that we learned that our Heavenly Father has a plan for us. He knows what we need. We had a hard time being told “no” because we felt strongly that we should start our family in the very near future, but the apartment wasn’t at all big enough for a baby, too. We put our trust in the Lord and let Him take care of us. As it turns out, we were not blessed with a child while we were in that little studio apartment. We still aren’t having a baby, but our trust and patience paid off. We looked at apartment after apartment after apartment. Nothing seemed to work out. Nothing seemed good enough to make the move. Then, out of nowhere the perfect apartment showed up. We found it in October, but couldn’t move in until December. We had to pay a high fine to get out of our studio apartment, but we did the math and it was still worth it to move. We found a beautiful two bedroom apartment for a total steal. Our neighbors and ward are incredible. And now we have room for a baby. It hasn’t happened yet, but the feeling here is a home. And someday our little family will include one more, much smaller member. And just like our first apartment, the baby will be small, but ours.

#7 & 8

this year the best christmas gifts came before the 25th. Jessica flew into town early to surprise my mom. Me and Cam drove down a day early to surprise my dad. Lindsay and Mackay arrived (8 months pregnant) on Saturday. Sunday morning, we filled an entire pew with just our family. everyone in their sunday best. even Julie walked in a few minutes before the meeting started. we all erupted in squeals to have us 5 girls in the same place. my dad is the bishop over a university ward, so he was the only one missing. until the opening song. we all squished together when we saw my dad walk through the door. mom teared up as we all sang the opening song. she introduced us 4 daughters in relief society. having us all together. knowing we all share the same love for our Savior, Jesus Christ. feeling the faith in our family. there isn’t anything better.

The text for this one can be found a few posts back. :)

Like Mother, Like Daughter

[sorry there's no border on this! use your imagination :)]

dear mom. you’ve told me so many times how much you love making a princess our of your daughters. i felt so unbelievably pretty at this photo shoot. it blows me away how selfless you are over and over again. i hope someday i get that trait from you. i’m so grateful to have your example in my life. i love this picture. i’m pretty sure this was when you were following me around with a newspaper trying to stuff it up my dress to keep it from getting dirty. i love that you promised me you’d never tell dad how much we spent on my dream gown. i love that i’ll never tell dad how much you spent on that wooden cooler. i love that we can shop internationally over the phone. i love that you can read my mind. i love that our laughs sound the same. i love how sometimes cam looks at me and says, “y’know, you’re just like your mom.” that is the ultimate compliment. and i love that we are silly. and we always will be. you are more of a friend to me than a mother. you are one of my best. thank you for teaching me everything i need to know about being a woman of God. you know, the essentials. wear nylons. shave your legs. drink water. appreciate the trees. laugh your tail off on a regular basis. wrestle with your husband. serve with a smile. wake up before noon. read your scriptures. expensive make-up might just be a necessity. high heels look best on tall girls. love with everything you have. stay close to the Lord. i owe you everything. thank you for being my confidant.
i love you. Kristin

[not that you guys care what i post on here, but i realize i haven't posted about what we're ACTUALLY doing right NOW in a long long time. i set a new year's resolution to scrap 365 pages. woo! It sounds like a lot, but really-i love it, and after graduating I have a lot of free time! so you'll probably be seeing a lot of random stories/happenings from the past year or so :)]

A Whole Year!

Dear Cameron,
You are the most
man in the whole world.
And you still give me butterflies when you kiss me.
I think you always will
I'm so grateful you're mine.
