I’d like to introduce myself

I have a few new followers so I just wanted to say, Hi, welcome! I’m glad to have you here and definitely a little tickled (ok, more than tickled) you want to read what I have to say. =)

Who wants a mini bio? I’d love to officially introduce myself.

Emily’s the name, last names aren’t my game. I keep my last name private, to keep some sense of restraint and mystery.

I’m 29, on the brink of hitting 30 and the youngest of 4…as you may have seen yesterday.

G-man and I have been together for 3 years and 10 months. We’ve had our moments in that time, but I love him with all that I have and eagerly await the future.

In that 3 years 10 months, we’ve lived apart for 3 years. It’s been long distance almost the entire time. I think I could write a book on how to do it. Stay tuned for the future ‘love story’…

Within that time, he’s been on 1 deployment, moved 5 times and I’ve moved 3. Bringing MY moving total to 24 times, and I foresee many more moves in my future. But all 24 times have all been in 3 states. CA, NV and UT. I’m a west coast girl born and bred, where I can tell you what a ‘dry heat’ feels like and how to ‘rock’ your car back and forth to get it unstuck from the snow.

I thought I wanted to be a model when I was 19, so I took classes, got my zed card (or like 100 of them) and did a couple things. Even moved to Los Angeles to pursue it, but all the agencies told me I was ‘too commercial’ for what they wanted and ended up having to work 2 jobs to survive.

I got to be an extra in a commercial with Carrot Top, movies called America’s Sweethearts and The Bookie and was in the audience for The Weakest Link and a talk show that failed.

I’m all about sports, playing volleyball, basketball and track in high school and getting to play Volleyball in college. And playing any sports now for fun. Except when it comes to Volleyball. I don’t like playing ‘for fun’ with people who don’t know how to play. I can’t do it. It’s not fun to me and I just end up being frustrated.

I’ve always been the ‘good girl’ and never had the desire to be anything other. Even working in a prison for 6 years, I was still the ‘good girl’ which meant a lot of Officers didn’t trust me since they thought I would ‘snitch’ on them when they did bad. But even this good girl slips up and follows along to keep another Officer in trouble from getting fired, which meant I could have been fired for what I did. (ironically he was fired a few years later for something similar)

My ultimate dream job would be being the fitness model you see in magazines or online showing you the step by step workout moves. I’d love to do that since it would mean I’d be in phenomenal shape and I wouldn’t have to look at the camera and ‘be pretty’.

My weakness is mint chocolate chip ice cream or Blue Bunny’s cherry chocolate bordeaux. mmmm, just had me some last night. I think that that’s the #1 most important thing for a single woman to have in her freezer, her favorite ice cream and I think it can make all things better.

So now you have a little taste of me. =) Is there anything else you’d like to know? Ask me anything and I’ll answer…just about anything. Winking smile  But I hope this helped you get to know me a little bit more, and naturally there’s a lot more that encompasses me so I’m happy to share if you’re willing to ask.

Pin It Now!

I loved reading this, and always enjoy getting to know more about the person behind the blog :)

I'm glad that you stumbled upon my blog, leading me to yours ... :)

Jess said...

Seriously, I do NOT remember where those 3 pictures were, magazines or what, but I know I've seen at least one of them. The middle one. Is that weird? I have a good memory for faces.

Now that I've said that you'll probably inform me that no one has ever seen them. Ha!

Also, I've been told I write how I talk as well.

Kate Harvey said...
