Hello! Welcome to a Modern Mrs. I'm Kristen Alvis; the thirty-something wife and mother of two, new Oregonian, small business owner, chai latte lover, and super rad lady.... if I do say so myself.
I love white wine, cream cheese and sweets in general, skinny jeans, hoodies, scarves, and am obsessed with changing my hair. I rarely talk on the phone, but will IM and text all the live long day. I'm always looking for a good deal, and will rarely buy anything if it's not on sale. My ideal afternoon is spent outside discovering this amazing city (Portland) I now call home!
MEET MY FAMILY
Any tech-related products are not only tested by myself (and possibly my kids), but get the final inspection by The Hubs.
You may not see much of her on the blog these days. These are those curious years where they spend most of their time in their room, and would rather do their own thing than spend time with the rest of the family. /sigh. That said, she's all about trying and doing new things, and she likes to contribute to the blog as best she can, so you may read more about/from her than you see her. Fair?
Her favorite toys are her play kitchen and all the pretend groceries that lie therein, V-Tech® Go Go Smart Friends Busy Sounds Discovery Home, and books. Books! This kid loves her books!
