Hey there! I'm Emily, and you're reading the blog I created a few years ago out of desperate need for a creative outlet. It's slowly turned into something I truly enjoy doing, and I hope you'll be stop by often and say hello!

Some of the posts you'll see floating around Instagram on Fridays are the "Friday Introductions" posts. I decided to write today's blog using some of the questions from the YouTube "Get to Know Me Tag" as my Friday introduction! So whether you've been reading this blog since day 1 or you just stumbled upon this page, I hope I can introduce you to the ever-so-clutzy, Sweedish Fish loving, everyday girl behind my photos and words.

  1. Where did you grow up?  - I was born in Missouri, and my parents lived across the state border in Illinois! When I was 5, we moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and when I was 10, we moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, both for my Dad's job! I moved down to South Carolina for college, and I now call it home! 
  2. What is the earliest memory you have? - Ha! I have THE worst memory, so honestly, I can't answer this because I have no idea. 
  3. What would you do with the money if you won the lottery? - If I can give a selfish answer, I'd probably travel all of the time! 
  4. What could you have done to make today more productive? Exercised. I really need to do that more. 
  5. If you had to wear one item forever, what would it be? Vests. If you know, you know. 
  6. What show do you wish could come back from your childhood? I was a HUGE Disney Channel fan growing up, so Suite Life of Zach and Cody, Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place... the list could go on and on.
  7. What song do you not know the lyrics of but you like to sing anyways? Bailando Spanish Version. It's basically my jam, though I obviously don't know all of the words since it's in Spanish. It's also probs inappropriate, but ignorance is bliss, right? 
  8. If you could have one talent what would it be?  I wish I could sing really well! 
  9. What is a weird food combination that you do? My husband thinks my Subway order is disgusting, so probably that - 6inch on Italian Herb and Cheese bread, tuna, American cheese, pickles, a LOT of black olives, vinegar and salt and pepper. It's been my favorite since I was a kid.
  10. Would you rather eat or drink your calories? Eat. Unfortunately, I'm a terrible snacker. 
  11. If you had to choose, how would you want to get famous? I think it would be nice to be a famous Influencer mainly because you don't have to deal with all of the ickiness that comes along with being Hollywood famous! 
  12. Which Languages do you speak? Well, obviously I speak English. I also minored in Spanish in college so I can partially speak Spanish though I'm not fluent. 
  13. Which languages do you wish you could speak? I wish I were fluent in Spanish, but I also wish I could speak French! 
  14. What country do you wish you were from? I'm proud to be an American, but England. I just want a cute accent.
  15. If you had a time machine would you rather go back in time or into the future? This is a hard one! Probably back in time, because if I saw the future, I would never be patient if I had to come back to the present and knew what the future held.
  16. Pet Koala or Pet Panda? Neither. Pet dog, duh! 
  17. What is your usual bedtime? 11pm! 
  18. What is an irrational fear you had as a child? I was convinced I was going to get kidnapped. I also had a stint with an irrational fear of men... So that's good...
  19. Have you ever conquered a fear of yours? I'm sure I've killed a bug before, so yeah.
  20. What is something silly you believed as a child? I convinced myself that people lived in the attic on the third floor of our house. I was spooked to go up there and look back into the dark. 
  21. What did you want to be when you were a kid? A teacher! My uncle was the principal of my school, and he gave me old desks, I had a chalkboard, a lesson plan book, and textbooks and curriculums that I would play with. It was the best! 
  22. If the kid version of you were to meet you now, how would they react? Honestly, not because I think I'm that great, but the kid version of me probably would have wanted to be just like me. As a kid, I always wanted to be JUST like the older women in my life, and I would pretend to be them. I guess I really looked up to them! 
  23. What is your favorite fictional world? Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls. Does that count? 
  24. Which teacher left the most impact on your life? My 4th grade teacher Mrs. Rivera. She taught me the power of repetition to help me learn and develop in topics that weren't always easy.
  25. What was the last movie you watched? Crazy Rich Asians, and I thought it was pretty good!  
Well, that was fun! I hope these questions helped you to get to know me a little better. Until next time!
