My name is Krystal Loren.  I grew up in Chino Hills, a small town in Southern California. I spent the early part of my adult life in Orange County, and in 2012 I made the move to the Bay Area where I currently reside with my silly husband, Leejay, our daughter, Zachary Jean, and dog, Winston. I'm a Registered Nurse by profession and a certified yoga teacher, currently teaching prenatal yoga in San Francisco. I love to travel and am usually on the hunt for amazing food (like everyone else in the world). I enjoy sabbathing, motherhood, photography, donuts and cheese. Thanks for dropping by. 


I started this blog as a means to document just about anything. Random thoughts, things I like, etc. Essentially a lifestyle blog with no real direction or meaning. My blogging happened in stages. When my husband and I were dating, he started a shared blog for us called Cheese and Donuts to document our little adventures and other nonsense. After we were married, I transitioned my blog to Wifey Status, a non-shared blog to continue to have some type of creative outlet. After becoming pregnant and being inspired by other mommy bloggers, I decided to join the club. Dinosaur Scrunchies was born and it's been a place for me to share the many things I've been experienced in my pregnancy, the journey that is motherhood, and the lessons I will continue to learn along the way.
