Whatchu want? Baby I got it.

Dude, I had all these Quick Takes ready to roll off my brain - actually I wrote them down on a scratch piece of paper because haha good luck to me remembering anything other than how many pistachios Levi can shove down a heater vent.

But instead of those I want to do a little Q&A sesh.

Things are about to sniffle sniffle (in a good way) change around these parts. (And by parts I mean blog. I can't handle too much change in any other area as of this moment. I'm still adjusting to the fact that my baby is all big like. OK, no more parentheses tangents...) I don't want to give too much away but a big reboot is coming soon! Like new face, new name, new everything except my silly little words. In the meantime, as I plan this moving forwardness, I would love to know what you would love to know.

There will always be an element to this blog that remains organic. (hippy dippy trippy) Sometimes I plan out the topics for the day and sometimes I let the juice flow from ma brain to ma fingertips (by means of the coffee. Hashtag all the coffee) But whatever it is that comes out here I want it to be real, to be authentic, and to be, well, helpful. I don't know what category I fit into (um, in life either): mom blog? faith and family blog? lifestyle blog? complaining/rejoicing about life blog? Ah, who cares. Labels are boring. I'm just here. For y'all.

So, after all that shpeel, here is what I have on the docket:

-embracing minimalism in all areas (at least our attempts to)

-clean eating/healthy living 

-homeschool stuff



-our adventures

-mom style

-how to's: like how I do laundry in an hour a week. How I grocery shop with kids and for crazy food allergies, how I taught Lola to poop on command (no I didn't forget about this one!), baby sleep crap I've figured out, etc

-random stuff: AKA whatever leaves my head at 6:00am

OK, so that probably wasn't too helpful since, in moving forward, a lot of me will remain the same. But here is where YOU come in: what do you want to hear about? What sort of topics (general or specific) would you like posted on? I have a list already going from people who have emailed or commented (and, Rebecca so sorry you can't comment here! hopefully that'll get fixed soon. I did get your email and am planning to answer all your questions!) but I would love to know whatever else you all want here.

So, leave a comment. Drop me a FB message. Head on over to Instagram (@xokristinenicole) and shoot me a line there. 'Cause if you don't I might just keep on posting about how much I love things like this soup. This cauliflower, spinach, avocado soup that (is this the meal plan talking?) is the bomb.

Workouts, running. Seems like you don't post about that as much anymore, which I get...you are more than a runner etc. but a move of the week, run of the week or something like that would be cool.

Oh, and are brown boots and black pants ok now? I see it around on different people, but growing up/in my early 20's mixing black and brown was a big old no, no. If you do it, how do you do it right?

You've pretty much covered it. I'm excited to read them. You may have inspired me to give my own blog another chance...just maybe
