Howdy! I’m Emily.
I am a little crazy, a little dorky, and an impulsive, (and can be a wee bit emotional, haha) girl! Born and raised in Texas, but now up north, but the south will always be a part of me. You can take a girl outta Texas, but you can’t the Texas outta the girl (no matter how much she loooooves the north 😉 )
I am married to a wonderful man named Andrew and have a 2 beautiful girls, Katie Rene’ and Holly Grace, and a little boy bundle of joy, Simon Zechariah 🙂 We love where we are and are TRULY thankful to be where God has been calling us. I love being a mother, it is the greatest blessing, even though it can be a little crazy at times! I hope that my blog gives you some insight into the crazy life of Emily and what makes me tick.
You will learn I can be a tad bit crazy when it comes to rearranging. Hey, I call it the money saving poor man’s redecorating! I love decorating and I really love doing it on a budget, and helping others do the same. I love making our home feel warm and inviting. I love things organized, though some call it OCD tendencies.
I love coffee, sesame sticks from trader joes, and I am OBSESSED with Mexican food. I enjoy wine and even like Guinness! I love our big screen tv and LOVE technology things.
I am not a fancy gal, I would rather wear my PJ’s than fancy dresses or jewelry. I ADORE vintage things. I love to cook and bake and I really enjoy making up simple recipes. I do NOT love laundry, but I love the smell of clean clothes. I am slightly weird and love cleaning.
I love playing with my kiddies. I love painting. I love photography and really enjoy taking pictures. One of these days I will get a REAL camera rather than using my smartphone. HA. I would love other crafts, but I have gimp wrists due to carpal tunnel. I love love love music. I love writing music. I love singing. I would love to write a children’s music CD. I love Christmas movies.
I love helping others. I love (and feel called to) working with high school and college age girls. I LOVE kids! I love using my life experiences to help them see how truly beautiful and treasured they are by God.
I love the Lord and am so thankful for all that He has brought me through. I had some hard things in my life, but the Lord has truly used them for His glory. He has used them to make me who I am today.
I hope my blog, Laundry & Lace, can help you find your beautiful, even in the midst of the mundane… even if your lace is nothing more than a beautiful HOT cup of coffee 😉 hey, a mom can dream, right?
