Conversations with my Husband: Do it #forthevlog ;)

August 28, 2015

Well, guys? I’m hoping this post today can serve as both a #loveyourselfie / no-makeup confession as well as a “I did it #fortheblog” because, well yeah- both of those things.  1. Head colds are rotten. I filmed this little diddy for you guys yesterday and while I was under the weather with this cold then, I feel like absolute death today. Just in time for the weekend! Hooray! 2. Because I was under the weather yesterday, you will note…

Christian walks into the room while I’m watching a movie…  X: “Hey, who is that? Tatum Channing?” Em: “What?!” X: “Tatum Channing?” Em: “No, I know- I heard you but seriously?! That person right there is a girl!” X: “I know. Tatum Channing!!” Em: “DAKOTA FANNING!” … a for sure glimpse into the days when we’re 90 and gray and man, it is just the best 🙂 See you all bright and early tomorrow for another edition of a Simply…

Conversations w/ my Husband – How to Take Pictures Like a Blogger

May 6, 2015

The following is a real conversation that happened a few nights ago while sitting in the living room together…  X: So for your blog pictures that you attach words/fonts to, do you have to plan them out and take them like this? Em: Yeah! Totally! Like this. X: Like this? Em: Yeah, and like this. X takes another selfie… X: Hey, I kinda look like the guy from the movie the other night! (aka) Em: Alright, we’re done here. For…

EG Interviews: Mr. Cullen (2)

March 5, 2015

I’m back with another edition of The Guy Behind the Blog, aka: my husband 😉 I must warn you all… when I asked him these questions last night, he was in rare form. (Aka: He was totally normal = crazy like always.) He was somewhat joking while answering some questions and completely serious while answering others. To those of you who know him in real life, let’s see if you can figure out which ones he was serious about. Thanks…

Conversations w/ my Husband: Gangsta Wife

February 12, 2015

Christian and I often times have the most random, sometimes weird conversations. Of course it’s all totally normal to us… I only realize how weird we really are when I share these conversations with other people. There was one point in our relationship where he confessed to me that sometimes when he’s driving, he likes to listen to the spanish channel on the radio because he doesn’t know what they’re saying so he can just kind of zone out. I…

Conversations w/ my Husband: The blonde moments.

January 15, 2015

A phone conversation earlier this week… Em: “Oh my gosh, the power went out. Like, the whole neighborhood is out.” X: “Are you okay?” Em: “Yeah, I grabbed the flashlight and a knife.” X: “Babe.” Em: “Well I watched Taken earlier today. This power outage couldn’t have come at a worse time.” X: “Yeah, that probably wasn’t the best movie to watch when you’re home alone.” Em: “No, I mean because the Golden Globes are on and I was live…

Conversations w/ my Husband: Remaining Grateful at 4am

December 17, 2014

I usually write down all of the funny conversations with X as they happen and then save them for a rainy day to share with you all, but I’d forgotten about conversations had years ago. I found some entries from my previous, private blog and am so glad I’d documented some of them. Here’s one of my favorites… We’re at the Carlsbad Tamarack Resort in San Diego and neither of them can sleep. They both somehow wake up at 4am…

Conversations w/ my Husband: Blank Check.

December 2, 2014

(while in the car…) me: “Would you be annoyed if we listened to Tay Swift again?” X: “Nah, go for it. I like that one song about the check.” me: “Which one is that?” X: “You know, the one where she’s like (singing) ‘I’ll write my name!'” me: “What?!” X: “Yeah, she’s like writing her name on a blank check for a guy or something.” me: “Babe, that song is called Blank Space and has nothing to do with checks.…

Light, Love, and a little Steven Seagal.

September 12, 2014

LIGHT. Thank you all SO much for your continued prayers for my parents and their group in Kenya, and also for the Kenyan people. I can’t tell you how much that means to me and to them. Yesterday, I included a picture in my post of a Kenyan woman looking up into the light. Last night, my dad emailed me to check in (they are all okay) and to share the story behind the picture. It is important to me to…
