I may or may not still be on a 90’s music kick. No shame.
I promise that I’m going to get my ‘About Me’ page up and running eventually (it’s on my to-do list!) but I’m not exactly sure when that will happen. So, until then, I thought I’d share a little more about myself through this survey that I’ve seen floating around. Short & sweet- enjoy!
The ABC’s of Emily:
Addictions: Burt’s Bees, Starbucks, my iPhone, bananas, CoverGirl Clump Crusher mascara, Pssst! dry shampoo, hummus, Pirate’s Booty, Urban Decay Naked palette, Twitter…
Bed size: Full!
Chore you hate: Laundry. I didn’t mind it when I lived at home but doing laundry in an apartment is horrible. I dread scrounging up quarters and lugging my clothes down to the washer/dryer.
Dogs or cats: I’ve always been more of a dog person but, since my apartment doesn’t allow them, I settled for a kitty. Now I can’t imagine my life without this little guy…
Essential start of your day: Coffee and breakfast. Seriously- all you people who “don’t like” breakfast are crazy. Not to mention, there are a zillion health-benefits to breaking-the-fast. (:
Favorite color: Oooh…probably pink. Or teal. Or purple. Unless we’re talking about clothes…then I usually stick to neutrals: black, white, grey, etc. Okay so maybe I like a lot of colors.
Gold or silver: It totally depends on my mood. Lately I’ve been loving rose gold though.
Height: 5’8-5’9. Depends on who’s asking. (:
Instruments you play (or have played): Clarinet and Piano. I don’t play anymore though.
Jobs titles you’ve had: Actress, Model, Personal Trainer, Hostess, Restaurant Assistant, Sales Associate, Administrative Assistant, Babysitter.
Kids: Cute buuut not for me anytime soon. Thanks.
Live: Born & raised…
Mom’s name: Lisa. We so silly…
Nickname: Emmy, Emma, Emmysue, Em, Princess (mom, haha)
Overnight hospital stays: I actually don’t think I’ve ever had any. Knock on wood…
Pet peeve: HA! I think I could go on for days with my pet peeves so I’ll just share a few of the most major ones: loud chewing/smacking, when a party of 2 insists on sitting at a table made for 4+ people (work), being stuck behind a slow driver, when people “brag” about how little they eat or how much they exercise, obnoxious drunks, when people sweat all over gym equipment and don’t wipe it down…
Quote from a movie: “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get” (Forrest Gump) So classic. So simple. So true. And it completely sums up my life at the current moment.
Right or left handed: Right!
Siblings: One sister, Lindsay. She’s my best friend.
Time you wake up: That totally depends. If I’m working and decide to go to the gym in the morning then I’ll typically get up around 6 AM. Otherwise I’ll sleep in until 7:30 or 8.
Underwear: Victoria’s Secret?
Vegetables you dislike: You’d be better off asking which vegetables I DON’T like. In that case, my answer would be celery. I honestly think it’s the only vegetable I can’t stand. Bleeehh.
What makes you run late: Hardly anything, actually. I’m rarely ever late. If I am, it’s probably because I overslept but I’m generally really good at managing my time.
X-rays you’ve had done: A lot, mostly on my eyes. I had a tumor in my retina when I was in middle school which required laser surgery to remove so I had a zillion x-rays then and still go back every year for follow up appointments. Weird, I know. Other than that it’s just been the typical teeth x-rays.
Yummy food you make: I’m allll about making stir-fries and massive salads- I think because it’s really hard to go wrong with them. I just throw everything in and somehow it’s always delicious. Other than that, I make a mean quesadilla, sandwiches, bbq tofu, marinated tempeh, etc. I keep it simple.
Zoo animal: Pigs! Okay, okay…those aren’t technically “zoo animals” but I’m obsessed with them.
Your turn! Answer one of the questions above so I can learn something new about you!
