Eco 411 with Lynn at Funtastically Green

Lynn over at Funtastically Green invited me to play along with her in a little “getting to know you” game! Some of you may know me, but most of you probably don’t…so here is a chance to learn a little bit more about me! Here are the 8 questions that she posted:

1. Who are you? Give us the goods girls – we really want to  know all about those skeletons in the closet.

Not sure I have any skeletons in the closet, but here goes…

I’m Kristina (a.k.a. Kiki…actually, my husband is really the only one that calls me that now.)

I am a registered nurse, but I am enjoying being able to stay at home with my 2 girls right now. My husband is in the Navy and we are currently stationed in Virginia Beach!

Let’s see…I am a “perfectionist-procrastinator”. Wait…you have never heard of that? Here is the brief summary…I stress out about even the smallest details of anything that I am doing. If I feel like I can’t do something perfectly, I wait until the very last minute to do it. Give me something that I am confident in doing and it will be done in no time! I currently have 85,846,938 projects started or on my to-do list!

Liz was the first one to post her answers to these questions and posted her personality type…great idea Liz! Here is mine: ISFJ …I actually think it is a pretty accurate description…except for the beautifully furnished house and great gift-giving skills. I’m still working on those, but I’m going to blame that on the perfectionist side of me. Ha!

I also love saving money. I use coupons and shop sales. I try to save money wherever I can!

I’ll be honest with you. I am very new to being “green”. I am making one small change at a time. I feel like every little step counts! Can’t wait to make my way around to all of the bloggers participating in this game!

2. If there was one thing on the planet that you could protect or change, what would it be?

For me, it would be what my children (and everyone’s children) are exposed to. In the last couple of years, I have become more aware of how serious of an issue this is. I have slowly started making changes in the products that we use in our home. I’m also very concerned about the food industry and the effects that it is having on our health!

This is right along the same lines as Lynn…glad we are on the same page!!

3. What’s your WORST green habit?

My worst green habit is probably how I deal with keeping bugs out of my house. I can’t stand bugs!! Someone help me out with some suggestions for natural pest control!

4. Which eco-guy is cuter? Leo Dicaprio, Woody Harrelson, Surf or Matt Damon

Not really into any of them…although Surf does look like a great dog. Will you consider Ryan Reynolds? I googled him just to make sure he can be considered an “eco-guy”…here’s my proof! Ha!

5. What’s your fav healthy food? Least fav?

My favorite healthy food is probably tomatoes…which is funny because I despised them when I was little. I have an awesome tomato soup recipe that I will be sharing on my blog this fall…love it! I also love me some good fresh salsa!! Someday I will grow my own tomatoes!

Lynn, I am right with you on the avocado being one of my least favorite healthy foods. I really do try though! I even have a shrimp taco recipe with corn salsa and avocado that I make pretty often…and I try the avocado on it almost every time.

6 If you could adopt an animal from WWF, what would it be? Why?

Honestly…I have no idea. I feel like my one dog is more than enough for me. Have you seen Mr. Popper’s Penguins yet? I might have to go with penguins after seeing that movie. Although…living right on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean puts the sea turtles and whales and dolphins pretty high on my list too. On the other hand, after my visit to the zoo today with my 3 year old, I might have to go with the “Ros-ros-erous” (a.k.a. Rhinocerous)…it was her favorite animal of the day!

7. If you could have any house, anywhere – where would you live?

I’m pretty sure that I would choose Colorado. It has always been my favorite state! My aunt lived in Colorado Springs and I loved it! We had our family reunion this summer in Keystone and I was reminded again of how beautiful it is!!

I would love to live in a house with a large front porch and a view of the snow-capped mountains…but still close to the city for shopping and restaurant purposes. He he!!

8. Is bigger better? (A house that is girls! Shame on you *snickering*) Would you rather have a small house or a big house? Why?

I would be OK with a smaller house as long as certain areas of the house were the right size. For example, I could definitely live with small bedrooms as long as the kitchen was a decent size. I would also love for it to have a bonus room…basement, loft, etc…
