The Best Banana Bread (& other randomness)

October 2, 2015

Oh, guys. It’s your lucky day! I’m sharing the BEST banana bread recipe you will ever try, all thanks to My Best Gal. But FIRST, let’s get random and catch up.   I’ve had 2 dreams about Justin Bieber in the past week. This could have to do with me listening to What Do You Mean on repeat all day every day, but obviously we’re dating now. (Clearly this is becoming a problem.) (Do NOT judge me. I have no control…

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…

Conversations & some other randomness

July 8, 2015

Thank you all SO much for your sweet words on Monday’s post! I am still reading through them and so touched by each one, and knowing that some of you are praying for our journey, as well as birth mom and baby?! I get choked up just thinking about it… those prayers mean so much, thank you! I am still attempting to relive this last weekend, it was just the best! The 4th of July is my second favorite holiday, yes,…

Dear Los Angeles, thanks for the writing material.

April 8, 2015

Some of you may remember from this post that Christian and I lived in Los Angeles for a hot minute and were soooo not fans. (Apologies to anyone currently living in LA, as well as anyone who is a fan!) In fact, we were so not fans that if there was ever a “Living in LA is the Worst” club, we would be in it. I would even consider running for President or Treasury or something. Visiting LA? Totally different…

It’s All About Me! (You gotta sing that.)

September 9, 2014

My dad and I have this silly jingle we sing to each other sometimes and it goes, “It’s all about me!” So if I start talking to my dad about myself, I’ll tell him what I have to say and then I’ll sing that. (And he does it too.) It’s hilarious. It’s also very fitting for today’s post.  Last week, I was tagged for the 7 Things About Me post of randomness. When I went to write this post though I had…

When it rains, it pours cats and birds (or, something like that)

September 6, 2014

My parents have been gone for a mere 24 hours and already the countryside is trying to kill me. But let me start at the beginning… Some of you may have seen my Instagram picture yesterday of my adorable mom & dad, all set for their medical mission trip to Kenya, and I’ll tell ya right now- I straight up felt like a mom dropping of her kids off on the first day of school and I may or may…

Things I’ve Caught Myself Saying (Since Working From Home)

August 13, 2014

When I made the decision to leave the corporate city world and work from home, I had no idea so much would change. I’d never worked from home before so I wasn’t sure what to expect, other than maybe to not have to wake up at 5:30am every day, which sounded pretty sweet to me. But as it turns out, it also affects your social skills, wardrobe, and your sanity. There have been times over the last 6 months I’ve…

Hi. My name is Emily, and I’m a Crap-a-tarian.

July 29, 2014

This post, I apologize, but it’s a little random today… (however, still really really important). (Like, really important.) (Randomness is always really important in my book.) (I promise I won’t keep talking in parentheses.) Consider this post a confession of sorts, yeah? (source) Alright. So what happens when… you don’t have any sugar in the house because you’re trying to eat less of it? Let me tell you what happens. One makes a peanut butter sandwich and dunks it into a…

The recap of the Journey concert that almost was

July 15, 2014

You all were so super sweet and fun with your Instagram and email comments on Saturday as I was getting ready to go jam out to one of my beloved 80s bands: Journey.  As I was getting ready, I listened to my 80s station on Pandora, and tried to get as 80s-i-fied (?) as I possibly could, without looking too… “Babysitters Club” – does that make sense? I finally settled on a side ponytail (but not obnoxious, you know?) with…

When Talking Gets Tough + Friends Who Practical Joke

June 24, 2014

It’s true. Cleo thought it was super uncool of me to tell you all this story, but hey- it is what it is, and I’m hoping I’m not alone on this one here.  So here is my question: Do you ever feel like the more you write, the less you’re able to talk? Or, do you ever feel like you’re just naturally horrible at small talk? I don’t know what it is, I really don’t, but ever since I started…
