Q&A with Kristyn
Where I grew up: Des Plaines, IL
My family: Married James in 2008 on Halloween. We had our first child in 2009, second child in 2012, and twins in 2013. Our rescue dog Lulu, latest dog Ghost, and a bunny named Daisy
My favorite music: Hard question because I love so many genres of music. I’d have to say 80’s pop and 90’s Rock/Alternative are at the top of the list. Top bands would be The Beatles and Nine Inch Nails (so opposite, I know)
My favorite foods: Deep dish pizza, a good cheeseburger with fresh-cut fries, chopped salad from The Corner Bakery
My favorite cocktail: Frozen margarita with no salt
What I like to do in my spare time: Hang out with my family either at home, the zoo, or walks in nature. I also like to sew and do other crafts.
My first job: My first real job was working at Fashion Bug.
Something no one would believe about me: Got my first tattoo at 16, with my parents’ permission
