name change

What is with this new name and what is a ch?
Well, dear readers, I will explain. You see, when your parents have a disagreement about how your name should be spelled and your mother is outnumbered 2 to 1 you end up with Christin instead of Kristen. This means that your entire life you will end up saying this to people “no its Christin, with a c.h.”
Welcome to my life. 
I figure since this is my blog and it’s about whatever I want it to be about, the name should be about me. Deal with it. 
But seriously, what do you all think?

    Love it. Obviously. So great. Fresh start, just in time for your improv career to sky rocket.

  2. VivianaMarch 28, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Perfect! All about you and perfect.

    I totally dig it. I get it especially, because I always say, “No, it’s Krissy with a K.” We’re name-soul-sisters. Just sayin’. On another note, I love that the seafoam is still dashed through the design.

    Lo-lo-love it. Obviously. I think it’s so rad. Just like you. Duh.

    I love it. Its so you!

  6. ShaneléMarch 28, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    I love it! Love, love love. Especially bc it’s something you’ve had to deal with your whole life. And now I’m going to have to have you teach me how to redirect everything if I ever get around to changing mine.

    Ps you HAVE to make that pinterest salmon. So so good.

    Love the new name & new design, Danielle Moss did my blog too – she is so talented – good luck with the new site (I have to go update my blog roll now!)

    Clearly I’m all about naming your little blog baby after yourself!

  9. NicoleMarch 28, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    I am new to these parts, so not sure what your old name was, but I love it! It reminds me of my childhood fave Anne with an E from Anne of Green Gables. And Danielle just did my blog too…isn’t she fab? Excited to follow you!

    loving the new look and new name! i think going with something personal allows you to write whatever you want without feeling boxoed in!

  11. michaela @ m.janeMarch 28, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    “it’s michaela. michael with an a”

    i like the new name and new look.

  12. whitneyMarch 28, 2012 at 5:30 pm

  13. Hollie AnnMarch 28, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    not doing to my child.

  14. Lara {simply irresistible}March 28, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Love the new name! So creative and so much more you – since you’re far from mean :)

  15. FRANKIE HEARTS FASHIONMarch 28, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    isn’t that quote so fab?! Glad you loved it as much as I did! And I love the new name…and love that there is a story behind it! xo

  16. kokonoelleMarch 29, 2012 at 12:41 am

    Lovesingit of course. I know the feeling, being a Kathryn… with the “ryn” not “rine”

  17. Anna ElderMarch 29, 2012 at 3:44 am

  18. Tamra {ever swoon}March 29, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    Love it. Blogging should be a reflection of u. I’m diggin it and I also have a name ppl always spell Incorretly. Tamra with two a’s not 3. :)

  19. Kate JulianMarch 29, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    it took me a few minutes to figure out who this was! then i read the paragraph and instantly knew haha.

  20. TiaMarch 29, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    I love the new name. It’s unique and it personally fits the author.

    I’ve dealt with this issue my entire life…I’ve always had to say, “No, my name isn’t Tina. Or Tara. No, it’s not a shortened version of anything. Just Tia. No, not like the drink. My name isn’t Tea. It’s Tia. That ‘I’ is important, you should take note of it.”

  21. Christen @ Little Green ApplesMarch 29, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    it’s my life too, although I also have to add “and with an e”

  22. natasha {schue love}April 1, 2012 at 1:14 am

    I like the new name!! It’s what makes you you! ;)

  23. L.A. in the bayApril 1, 2012 at 4:45 am

    Love the meaning behind it and super unique! Wish I could change mine! :(

  24. Grace - Stripes and SequinsApril 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    I’m loving it! :)

  25. Kristin WApril 3, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    I don’t know why parents loved this name so damn much. There needs to be one universal spelling. How many times to you get “ChristEn” still? I thought I had it bad enough with the -in, but add that CH in there and you’re done.

    I love the blog name though :)
