Well, there's no time like the present....

Murphy &  I ~ Christmas 2010

So, I guess I'm going to give this blog thing a try. We'll see how it goes.

Here are some random things about me, in no particular order:

My name is Kris.
I live in Minnesota.
Murphy is my dog.
He is two. I'm quite a bit older than that.
Two of my favorite things to do are Cross Stitch and Read.
And play with Murphy, of course!
I am a Credit Manager for a manufacturing company.
I've worked for the same company for 19 years.
I have an unhealthy addiction to all things snowman related.
I don't like coffee. Can't stand the smell of it.
I am a volunteer for The Liz Logelin Foundation.
I have one older sister.
I am an aunt to my niece & nephew, whom I love dearly.
I love all kinds of music.
I love to laugh & I'm happiest when I can make other people laugh.
I love to watch it snow.
I hate to shovel snow.
Fall is my favorite time of year.
I have a small (okay, not so small) addiction to my iPhone.
I've always thought the work week should be Saturday-Sunday and the weekend should be Monday-Friday. Clearly, that is not the case.

So, that's about it for now. I have a couple of cross stitch pieces being framed that I will try to get pictures of once I have them back and post them.

If you find your way to my new blog, stop in and say hi. I think I have the comments turned on. I'm not really sure. :)
