My name is Emily. I live in South Florida with my hubby Craig, and our crazy Jack Russell Einstein. I am an Emergency and Critical Care Vet Nurse, and I really like it! I am lucky enough to work only three days a week, which gives me a lot of time to do these fun things.
I love baking, but I hate cleaning up the mess. This sometimes leads to me not trying new recipes or getting into a lot of crazy stuff. What can I say? Cleaning = boring. However, I have been in the mood to bake like crazy lately. I think that once you find great recipes, you want to bake and cook all the time. It works out quite well for us because I bake, he cooks. I love his cooking, he loves my baking, so we always have a willing food tester in the house. For the record, I don't cook. I want to cook, I really do, but nothing good ever comes from it. One time the stove broke while trying to cook a new recipe. I took that as a sign, and from that point on, me and the stove had a clear understanding of our relationship. The main equipment I use, besides the obvious, is a plain old Kitchen Aid mixer and a Hamilton Beach food chopper. I love them and they have never steered me wrong.
I like doing crafts. I went through a phase awhile back where I was crafting every day. I painted candles, made Christmas ornaments, and so on. I need to start again!
I am a pathological picture taker. I take pictures of people and animals to the point of annoyance. Ask anyone who knows me. Wherever we go I have my camera ready, and I give people fair warning that they will be getting their pic taken, many times, all day. That being said, I do not have a fancy camera, with multiple lenses, and crazy zoom settings and all the other frills. I have a plain old Olympus, and it gets me through the day.
So now that you know a little about me, you will know what to expect. I hope you like everything I post! I just want to have fun with this blog, and I hope you have fun reading it! If you like what you see, please feel free to comment, I would love to hear what you think!
