Introduce Yourself

So I want to switch things up a little bit today. Instead of me talking about me, because honestly sometimes I don't know why you keep coming back here to read my blog about my boring life (though I LOVE that you do), I want you all to introduce yourselves!

You can write whatever you want, but if you need some prompts, please answer any or all of these random questions. 

Do you blog? If so, what's it called and where can I find you?

Where are you from? 

Pick one: Leopard, Floral, Sequins or Stripes?

What's your favorite cocktail?

Pick one: Football, Figure skating or Frog Racing?

I'll get the party started

I'm Emily, I blog at the Blue Dog Belle (obviously). I'm from Atlanta, Georgia; I live in Washington, D.C. While it's a tough choice I'm going to have to pick Leopard. Gin and Tonic or a glass of pinot noir, I can't decide. While frog racing is a long time hobby of mine (what? you didn't know that about me?) I'm going to have to go football. 

Now get to commenting boys and girls. I promise to come visit you (or send you an email if you don't blog), plus maybe check out a few of the other commenters and make some new friends :)

Thanks to Lauren for the inspiration.

Tamara @ Everything Happens said...

I'm Tamara and I blog at http://everythinghappensblog.blogspot.com. I'm from Western NC - the closest well known city is probably Asheville, NC. I would definitely choose leopard print, I can't get enough of it this year! I agree with the Gin and Tonic, but I also like fruity girly drinks. Anddd... I'd have to say figure skating. I actually went to the National Championships two years ago!

Betsy Transatlantically said...

Shay Lianna said...


I'm Shay and I blog at My Confidence + Me (www.myconfidenceandme.com)!
I'm from central Massachusetts, live in DC, and sometimes really want to move back to New England. But then winter happens.
Favorite cocktail? no idea. I'm a beer snob!
Football. But actually hockey, except that wasn't a choice :)


Mree said...

Love this Em!!

I'm Marie, my nick name is Mree and I'm from Boston, Massachusetts.

Yes, I blog. It's www.twinlivingblog.com

Love stripes, it's the New England girl in me.

I love Malibu Rum and Coke or Prosecco.

Never heard of frog racing before, I'm going with ice skating. It's my favorite winter sport.

Sara said...

Yes, I have a blog: www.stylefortheseasons.com.
I am from Reno, NV but I currently live in Arlington, VA.
Tough call: I am going to say stripes. I looove them. Oh, and I am currently wearing them.
Favorite cocktail: Lately: Vodka + Diet Tonic. With lime.
I would pick football. Fun fact: I went to college with Colin Kaepernick who is PLAYING IN THE SUPERBOWL on Sunday. Whattttt.

TheTinyHeart said...

I'm Sharon and I blog over at The Tiny Heart (which you already knew). I live at the Jersey shore. It's hard to pick, but stripes are definitely my fav. Lately I'm all about Riesling (not a cocktail but still yummy!). And I'll have to go with ice skating.

Jill said...

Hi! I'm Jill. I blog at In Good Faith (www.ingoodfaithblog.com). I'm a lawyer/newlywed/dog mommy. I'm from Wilmington, DE near Philly but live in Raleigh, NC, where I plan to stay! I'd have to say leopard. I love leopard flats or scarves to mix in with basics. Favorite cocktail is an old fashioned or manhattan, but more often than not I'm a beer girl. Definitely football. I'm an Eagles fan {through thick and thin... this year......thin).

Kristin Saling said...

I'm K.C. and I blog all my fun stuff at (ahappyeverafter.com) and all my professional social media and systems stuff at (systemdynamicsblog.com). I'm from California but I'm currently living in New York and moving to Hawaii next summer. I have to go with stripes, but I can sequin like a champ. As a California vineyard girl, I don't cocktail - I pinot and occasionally sangria. And I come from a football household so, yeah, football :)

Eliza :: Case Study said...

Hey lady! Your new looks is STUNNING. Go Kate :) Also, even though you know me, I'm going to do this.
Do you blog? If so, what's it called and where can I find you?

I'm from Virginia. I'd choose stripes. I typically have a vodka tonic with lime, but in my college days I was more of a rum + coke or long island iced tea kind of girl. Hmmm. Football or figure skating..what I want to know, is what the heck is frog racing?

xoxo! eliza

Janna Brandon said...

Hi Emily!

I'm Janna and I blog over at Faith, Love, and Hope (www.faithloveandhopeeverafter.com). I am from South Carolina and hope to one day return there but that might be awhile since my husband is in the military, lol. Since I could only pick one...I'm going to have to with leopard. I don't know why but here recently, I've falling in love with anything leopard. I think it's contagious because my daughter also loves it too now! As for cocktail, I don't have a favorite. I do however have a favorite wine: Red Cat. It is absolutely delicious! Since I'm from the South, this answer should come as no surprise. Football reigns supreme, lol.

Marissa said...

Hi Emily!

I'm Marissa from Seattle and I blog at http://www.makeuphoarder.com/ I would have to pick leopard especially if it's in scarf form, my favorite cocktail is something a bartender invented for me and I have no idea what it was except fruity, fizzy and had vodka, and I'd have to say figure skating

jackie jade said...

Fun post! I'm jackie and my blog is jackiejade.blogspot.com. I'm from Pittsburgh, PA and still live there. Love all those patterns, but leopard might be my fave. Vodka soda and not into any of those sports really haha. More of a girly girl. You'll find me watching hgtv while my boyfriend is downstairs watching football and golf.

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I blog at Snowy Mountains and Starry Skies. I grew up an Air Force dependent, lived the longest consecutive amount of time in Montana, and I currently reside in Colorado. However, I feel most attached to Washington D.C., Alabama, and Montana of all the places I've lived. I would choose leopard always, though I love a good stripe. I love vodka cherry sours; it's a red sour patch kid in beverage form. Football-no question.

I blog at Snowy Mountains and Starry Skies. I grew up an Air Force dependent, so our running joke is we grew up everywhere. I lived the longest consecutive amount of time in Montana and I currently reside in Colorado. However, the places I've felt the most attached to are Washington D.C., Alabama and Montana of everywhere I've lived. Leopard-always. I do love a good stripe though. My drink of choice is a vodka cherry sour (it's like a red sour patch kid in drink form) or reisling. While I enjoy whiskey, I haven't drank it as much since leaving Montana ;). Football. Roll Tide! Up with Montana! Here we go, Steelers, here we go!

I'm from NC, but am currently rocking it in San Jose, CA. You know I love my sequins, but stripes are tied with leopard for second. Favorite cocktail..I think Dark and Stormy or a Pimms Cup. Finally, I love me some football. Figure skating is awesome in the olympics but I'm a total gridiron girl ;)

Amy said...

You know me... but I'll play!
From Ottawa, ON, Canada :)
I love all those things but I'll say stripes.
The better question is which cocktail don't I like? I love a good G&T, spiced rum and coke, vodka water with lime. I don't like football or figure skating.. so I'll stick with frog racing?!

Amy said...

ps. loving the new design!!
