10 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Today, I’d like to share a few things about myself you may not already know, so dive in and let me know something interesting about yourself in the comments below!

  1. I’ve always been a little more goal driven than I probably should be. Some call it unhealthy, I just like to thank my parents for this motivated “type-A” personality of mine.
  2. Type-A huh? At the age of 12 I made my self a binder full of page protectors that held my medals and ribbons for my grades and sports memorabilia. The cover page.. “Emily’s Book of Accomplishments” I now understand why my mom just giggled and shook her head.
  3. So where has that gotten me? Well I was a bruiser in every sport I played, cried when I brought home my first B (I’ve never been able to deal with failure) and refused to lose to boys.
  4. Today, I’m an Air Force pilot. It’s a demanding profession that tests me daily and I absolutely love it. It makes me feel empowered as a women and a leader, even at the end of a 24-hour day when I don’t remember where I woke up and my mascara is cracked all over my face.
  5. I’m a girly-girl to my core. Which I hope is crystal clear from my blog.
  6. I LOVE small dogs. All dogs actually, but small dogs especially. Hate if you want, but they’re so tiny and cute I just can’t stand it. Our two little babies are Scottish-Terrier Miniature Pinscher’s and they’re ADORABLE. You would die!
  7. I Face-Time my parents pretty much everyday. I’m a momma’s girl from way back and I know I’m blessed to have two parents that love me and my brothers unconditionally.
  8. Fitness is something that is very important to me. Not just because I’ve been SUPER competitive my entire life, but also because we have some serious health conditions in our family.
  9. I love food. Who’s with me?? Truthful moment, I might carry a small tube of truffle oil around in my purse. Don’t judge. If you lived down the street from the Tavola Truffle Cafe you would too.
  10. I’m really excited about this blog. I’m just starting out, and I’m a little intimidated by all of these very talented women with their perfectly laid out blogs and flawless photos, but I’ll do my best to keep you entertained.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon. Let me know something interesting about yourself in the comments below!

  1. I’m excited to be able to keep up with your crazy life because I miss the heck out of you!!! Your list was. I surprise me to! Your amazing! Love you

  2. Love it Sis. Although you might be giving myself and your Dad too much credit. God made you you from day one. Much of the time we just stood back and watched you soar. We are so proud of the great example you are setting for young people to come.
    Love you The Parental Unit ❤️

  3. Hi Emily!

    Looking forward to reading your blog and following along with social media!

    Best,
    Emily

    1. Hi Emily!

      Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Well, thank your parents for me and that is so sweet. It’s my pleasure, I absolutely love my job.

      I hopped over to your blog and it’s amazing! I’m such a foodie at heart and will definitely be recreating your Frose (brilliant!) and roasted carrots. Yumm!

      Thanks again girl!

  4. Hi Emily!

    I love,Love, the blog! Wow nice to run across an awesome gal with such drive and beautiful taste!
    We seem to have a lot in common. I’m a fellow pilot and I’ve been flying around these parts for the past 20 yrs. My husband and I live in edmonds, he’s retired navy and I’m a dental hygienist. I always love a good adventure it looks like you do too. I Love the great out doors, favorite hobbies, skiing, hiking, gardening flying, cooking… and oh can’t forget shopping 😊 I really enjoyed seeing the aviation clips and pics. It’s nice to see a girly girl fly, and espically that beast you fly. Lol, you could probably fit a few Cessnas like mine in the cargo belly!
    I’m looking forward to following the blog and living vicariously through you.
    Girl power!!

    Thanks to you and your husband for your service and keeping us all safe!

    Tail winds always,

    Annette AKA (flyingtoothfairy)

    1. Annette,

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I love getting to know other lady aviators. Edmonds is a beautiful area! We are looking forward to summer so we can get out and explore farther north. Yes, my plane is a big ol’ girl. Sometimes I forget just how big she is! If you are ever down in the Tacoma area and would like a tour, we would be more than happy to oblige. Catching me when I’m home however, that’s the real challenge.

      Thanks again for stopping bye! Wishing you nothing but clear skies and tailwinds as well,

      Emily 🙂

  5. Wow that would be pretty awesome!, I would love that!
    When you get a chance, explore Anacortes and the San Juan Islands, it’s really beautiful up there! It’s where I keep my plane. I lived in Anacortes for 6 yrs and still work up that way 3 days a week.
    Have a great week,
    Annette
