30 Day Blog Challenge

Katie over at Katie's Journey has invited some of her readers to play along in the 30 Day Blog Challenge. I thought I'd give it a go. I'll still post about other things, too, but I thought this may be fun. I mean, don't you want to know MORE about me? Ha ha!

If you'd like to join, just go to Katie's blog for the details and link up with her. :)

{Day One}

{Introduce Yourself}

Hello there. I'm Emily. I'm a first-time SAHM to my beautiful, 8-month old son. Where has the time gone? I moved to Texas a little over 2 years ago with Jason, whom I have been with for over 5 1/2 years. I love animals, decorating my home, trying to be crafty, finding a great deal, Christmas and Pepsi. Oh how I LOVE Pepsi!

This was taken last Thursday at a local farm that Aidan and I visited with our Mom's group! :)

{15 Interesting Facts About Me}

1. The four sites I check daily when I go online are: blogger, facebook, yahoo! and meetup.
2. I would much rather shop for things for my home or for Aidan than for myself.
3. The only countries I have visited other than the US are the Bahamas and Canada.
4. I drive a manual transmission SUV. I love driving a stick shift and I feel like driving an automatic is too easy. I also hate using cruise control.
5. I have 2 calendars that I use to keep track of everything. One is permanently hung in our kitchen, the other I keep in my purse.
6. I love buying pretty journals to write lists in. I'm a sucker for the clearance at Barnes and Noble because they ALWAYS have them really cheap!
7. I like writing lists and crossing things off as I do them. It's a great feeling of accomplishment. And I'd also probably never get anything done if I didn't have my lists!
8. I constantly pick at my split ends. It's a form of OCD called trichotillomania and I've had it since I was in 7th grade. I wish I could stop, but I just can't.
9. I make my bed everyday.
10. Boxers are my favorite dog breed.
11. If I could have any job I would be a high school history teacher.
12. I wish my house were bigger.
13. The two shows I ALWAYS watch are The Biggest Loser and Parenthood.
14. My sister, Elizabeth, is my best friend and has been since we were in high school.
15. I am addicted to craigslist. It's fantastic!

Check back tomorrow for day two of the blog challenge! Aren't you just dying to see what I'll write?!


  1. My husband I moved to Arkansas from Northwest Ohio over a year ago and wow what a change! We were not natives of Ohio but we loved it there. Hope you have adjusted well! Looking forward to reading more on your blog :)

  2. So glad that you are participating! I know that it has been a while since I have commented, but I have been reading! I cannot believe he is 8 months old already! Looking forward to seeing your answers over the next month!

    Just wanted to let you know too that each day I will have a new linky up!

  3. So many of your Facts are like me: calendars, journals, lists, but we got off track at making the bed! I'm getting better though, it's nice to see it all made up:) And I looove biggest loser and parenthood too, although I haven't started watching BL this season, but I've recorded them. Is this season good?
