About Me

Sooo I'm moving at the end of March, leaving the Navy for civilian life, job-hunting, and dealing with family deaths and illnesses :( With that said I've drastically reduced my swaps. I still need to de-stress (crafting) hence the swaps I am in. As soon as I get my new address I will post it on here for any of my partners that will be sending to me towards the end of March.

Penny Hi! My name is Cristin. I'm a civil engineer, currently in the US Navy. Some of my passions include swimming, the beach, the outdoors, dogs (favorite is the boston terrier!!! *and now jack russel!), traveling, eating delicious food, listening to music. I play the flute and am currently attempting to learn how to play the guitar. Some of my craft hobbies include making collages from old magazines, doodling and coloring, and taking pictures. I have two pets, an angelfish named Flo and a jack russel I adopted named Penny

Favorite Music

I like ALL music. Some of my favorite artists include but are definitely not limited to: Brad Paisley, Michael Buble, Mandy Moore, Weezer, Maroon 5, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, No Doubt, Train, Dierks Bently, Sugarland, 311, 3oh3!, Jimmy Buffet

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, True Blood, Community, Parks and Rec, The Office, Outsourced, Psych, Bones, Lost, STAR TREK and old 90's sitcoms

Favorite Books

I read A LOT. I love murder mystery and suspense. Favorite Author has to be Janet Evanovich. Harry Potter series. Sookie Stackhouse series. James Patterson, Mary Higgens Clark.

Tomorrow I'm dropping another little package in the mail for you. It is a few items that were supposed to go into your Easter surprise package that I found hiding under a pile of stuff. Give me a few years, and you may see me on Hoarders! (Kidding... I hope...)

Anyway, yay! And don't forget to watch new Doctor Who next week :-)

Hi Cristin,

Congrats on graduating and good luck with your flight school. I love your fish names! :)

Just like you, I don't like black licorice, yuck. ;)

Hope you're having fun on swap-bot! It was nice to have you as a partner for the "Read My Profile and Leave a Nice Comment #2!!."

Hi there! Florida sounds like a really great place to live. I love dolphins too, but have never seen one in the wild...only at SeaWorld. True Bloods gettin' good, huh? I can't wait till the final episode!! I collect smushed pennies too. They bring me back to my childhood when we used to put them on the railroad tracks. Smiles!! (Read my profile & leave nice comment swap)
