She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Emily A. Clark

I'm excited to bring you one of my favorite blogger's and mama's in blogland. Meet Emily of Emily A. Clark
Emily's blog is the first design blog I ever read and I timidly emailed her one day three summer's ago asking for blog advice. She sweetly responded and gave me the biggest boost of encouragement, which I'll always be grateful for. This stylish mom has the most beautiful 5 kids, impecable taste and a home office that I wouldn't mind residing in while working and sipping some tea :) She's here today to share her loves and love-me-nots!

Hi all!  I’m happy to be a guest for this fun little series.  It has made me realize how random my likes and dislikes really are :)  So, without further ado….
1. Having a big family.  Although our twins (the fourth and fifth additions to our family!) aren’t quite yet a year old, we’re already seeing how fun—and chaotic—being a a party of seven can be.  There’s never a dull moment, and it’s always entertaining to watch people in restaurants start counting heads when we come in with our crew.
  

2.  Shopping for junk.  I guess the appropriate word here would be “thrifting.”  I just like the thrill of the hunt and searching through lots of stuff to find a treasure with hidden potential.  It’s like a game.  I like flea markets, yard sales, thrift stores, my garage. . . .

3. Stripes.  I like wearing them, and I like putting them on my walls.  I think they’re bold and classic all at the same time.


4. Judge Judy.  I’m officially publicly declaring my love for Judge Judy.  My family thinks I’m weird because I record every episode that comes on during the day (and there’s several. . . ) and watch them at night.  I find her thoroughly entertaining.  She’s tough, she’s smart, and she doesn’t have time for nonsense.  I like that.

1. Nicki Minaj.  As much as I like Judge Judy, I dislike Nicki Minaj.  I wasn’t that familiar with her before this season of American Idol (I’m old), but I find her completely annoying.  She seems so condescending to the contestants, and I don’t get the whole look.



2. Facebook.  I do have a Facebook account.  But, honestly, the way it’s taken over our world and the way we interact with each other kind of wears me out.  I mean, why would I need to know what the person I met at summer camp in 1991 had for dinner yesterday?  It’s puzzling.


3.  Texting.  I’m bad at it.  And, it stresses me out when more than a one-word answer is required.

And, I just realized that my dislikes make me sound like I’m 82. . . Oh well, it’s been fun :)

Thanks, Emily! I'm right there with you on loving shopping for junk. I think my stripe obsession is a very real thing as well :)

  4. Great post! and I agree on the texting and facebook, especially when it takes over people`s lives. I`m loving diet coke and victorian literature, and not loving cold weather and housework.

  13. I just popped over by way of Emily's blog - and this was such a fun post. It got me thinking and realizing that I like / dislike a lot of the same things (although I have never seen Judge Judy before).
