Five Question Friday & Show Us Your Life

My Little Life

1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song?

No, I don't sing karaoke. To be honest I am a terrible singer...but I love to do it! Right now I really love "Party in the USA," but if my sister reads this I couldn't go without saying what I would give to be able to sing the national anthem. :) (Love ya sista!)

2. What is your favorite coffee drink?

Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte, no whip

3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?

I don't think I would change my name but I have always joked about spelling it different. LOL It doesn't make sense but I think it would neat to spell it "M-A Lee" (dumb, I know) or I like the way "Emilie" looks too!

4. Were you ever bullied?


5. How often do you eat fast food?

I can't disclose that information right now. :)

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner
When Kelly decided to do "collections" I immediately knew what I would do. As I child I collected key chains.'s a good thing I am an organized person and know exactly where to find all the "Emily's Childhood Boxes." :) I hope you enjoy this post, I had fun looking back into my collection and Mark really thought I was a nerd.
Above is the pile of all the key chains, there are over 100. More importantly...look at the container I kept them in. :)

Here are a few from FL vacations. Amazing how they all looks alike....

Above are just a few special/favorite ones, the tape I just thought was funny (kinda aged me), the Coleman lantern really worked, I thought it was fun how I had a Southeast key chain and that ended up being the college I attended, the white key chain is from my grandpa who just passed away his business logo.

My grandpa used to travel A LOT, at one point he was trying to make it to all 50 states, I don't know if he has finished yet. He used to get me a key chain from each state. Most of the time he got really nice key chains, not the cheap ones at the truck stops. (not that there is anything wrong with those, I collected them too)

These were a few from different countries...

I don't want to sound hoosier that I have so many collections but when I was taking pictures of the key chains I did remember I have kind of started a collection as an adult, but not really. LOL Makes no sense...I know. Hawaii/ocean life is a really big deal in my husbands family. When I went to Hawaii for the first time I fell in love with sea turtles. His parents have gone so often we were able to go to local hangouts where there were not a million tourists. One of those places they have nicknamed "turtle bay." Every day at 4pm the sea turtles get REALLY close to shore. As long as you have snorkel gear you can be FACE TO FACE with endangered sea turtles in the ocean! It's amazing, words can not even begin to describe. You can't touch them because they are endangered species though. It was here I realized my love for sea turtles. The Hawaiians have something they call their "ohana." It means family in Hawaiian, each family has a symbol or animal or something they relate their family to. Mark and I have adopted the sea turtle as our ohana. (Just to clear things up, we don't worship it or anything like that...don't get the wrong idea) Ok, so with that said back to my collection...I have a few sea turtle decor items around our house. I also have a sea turtle tattoo but due to the 5 month pregnant with twins belly I won't be posting a picture of that sea turtle. (though, if you really want to know it is NOT stretched at all...I think it may actually be a in a safe spot)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
