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?!

  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?
