ABCs of Emma!

HEY friends, and HAPPY FRIDAY/WEEKEND!! I’ve not had a great one to be honest- I’m sick again! I’ve spoken to someone and we *think* we know what’s wrong, but I’m gonna go see the doc anyway.


In the meantime, I still have no computer (stupid virus!!) so that rocks. Anyway tonight, you can have some ABCs of Emma! Open-mouthed smile


A: is for Avocado- favourite usage?

In…avocado chocolate mousse!! Best thing EVER Smile


B: is for baked goodies. What is your favourite?

Brownies or cookies, brownies or cookies…I think cookies take it! JUST. Probably since I had four Super-Charge Me cookies today! Winking smile


C: is for Coolness. Are you cool?

Very. I mean, I have a Banana Guard. How am I NOT cool?DSC00561

D: is for Dates (of the foodie variety!). What is your fave way to enjoy them?

Straight outta the bag x10000. And stuffed with nut butter of course…



E: is for Emma. Obviously.


F: is for Fashion- tell us about your fashion?

Let’s just say I was very fashionable when I was a kiddo…


…if only they made that outfit in adult sizes…*sigh*

G: is for Groceries- what are your essentials?

Broccoli and chocolate milk.


And obviously the usual nut butter and chocolate! Open-mouthed smile

H: is for Hair. Be honest, why is it so darn long? 

Because I’d rather spend £30 on running books than on a haircut. True story.


I: is for Idol. Who is yours?

Paula Radcliffe baby!! She rules all SmileDSC08848_thumb[1]

J: is for Jam- what do you have it with?

PB obviously!! And in cereal-yoghurt messes…


K: is for Kids. Do you love them?

YES. My cousins are sooo cute and obviously I corrupt them and turn them into mini-Emmas….


L: is for Loooong Runs- love or hate?

Love. Love the time with myself. And love the after effect…


M: is for microwave, what is your favourite microwave meal/snack?

Microwave Single Lady Cupcakes! DSC00577_thumb[1]

N: is for NUT BUTTER! Be honest, how much do you love it?



A lot.

O: is for oatmeal! Fave flavour?

Chocolate oatmeal with cookie dough nut butter. Mmmm…



P: is for PANCAKES! What is your favourite pancake?

Basically all of Katie’s pancake recipes, especially her snickerdoodle and cookie dough ones!!


Drizzled drenched in maple syrup of course Winking smile

Q: is for the Queen. Have you ever met her?

No. But every time I’ve been to the States, I’ve been asked if I have! Smile with tongue out

R: is for racing- do you love it?

YES. Getting race packets in the mail is the most exciting thing EVER:


They are SO fun!! If only they were free…

S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite filling?

PB&J, PB+banana+honey, and PB and apple. Seeing a theme here?!


T: is for TV. Be honest- how much did you watch today?

A lot. Gilmore Girls x2


And numerous episodes of Friends and Criminal Minds. In my defence, I’m ill, so that’s ok…right?! Smile with tongue out

V: is for vino.

I don’t drink, but I still get excited when I get given it for free:


Really though, the excitement was about the free lollies! Smile with tongue out

W: is for Whole Foods. Favourite ever purchase?


EVERYTHING!! Probably Dark Chocolate Dreams the most though! Soooo addictive!!

X: is for Xylophone. Cos I have a very limited vocabulary and that’s all I can think of. 

Y: is for yoga- yay or nay?


DSC09094_thumb[1]I’m also going to try my first hot yoga class soon- can’t wait!!

Z: is for zzzzzz, cos that’s what I’m off to do now. Gooood night! Smile


Favourite baked goods? That question took me the longest. It’s too hard. Still standing my cookies though, JUST!


Fave sandwich filling? PB&J is the ULTIMATE in my opinion!


Got any good weekend plans? Share with me pleeeease!!


Hope you guys have a GREAT weekend!! Much love <3

  1. Favorite baked goods: Brownies
    Favorite Sandwich filling…I’d say Peanut Butter, but I prefer it right out of the jar.
    Weekend plans…10 mile long run, get together with some old friends, then getting together with more friends…and hopefully some pool time!

  2. Oh my muppets. (Emma phrase!)
    I think I laughed a million times at this post. And wanted to leave a comment about every single letter. But I don’t wanna type that much… can you PLEASE just come over here so I can talk your ear off in person, telling you how much fun you are? (I’d go over there, but I’m afraid of flying :(.) Until then, I’ll just pick a few letters to tell you about. Starting with the banana guard… because only you could make a banana guard look cool! And somehow you do! Then the mini Emmas… well, if you won’t come over here, can you at least send one of them?
    And yoga… I wish I liked it! I keep trying! But no luck so far.
    And dates… I’m kinda wishing for one of the not food variety right now. I’ve been single a long time! How am I ever going to have mini Katies? You know, to play with the mini Emmas and corrupt the world? But at least there are single lady cupcakes, right?
    And if you followed this comment without getting confused, you are even more incredible than I previously thought ;).

    • HAHAHA Katie you make me laugh sooo much!! :D

      Of course I’ll come visit you!! So you’re scared of flying…are you a good swimmer then? :P

      And aah we are two single ladies in need of dates (foodie and otherwise!!) but it’ll all be ok because when we’re old we can live together and bake Single Lady Cupcakes all day long. And Buddy and Henry will be best friends too :) But really what is going to happen is that Prince William will meet you, realise he’s married the wrong Kat(i)e, and then marry you instead and you’ll have tons of babies. And that’s cool cos I’ll have tons of FUDGE babies too keep me happy ;)

      Love you!!!

  3. EMMA!!!!!! I’ve missed you SO MUCH!!! I’m so behind on your posts. Why does school always have to get in the way?! ;)
    I think our taste buds are like exactly the same… nut butter sandwiches, nut butter in general, chocolate oatmeal, Katie’s pancakes… I could go on and on! :p
    My weekend plans? ACT. Boohoo :( How about I hop on the next plane to England and visit you instead? ;)

    <3 <3

  4. Baked Goods: Chocolate chip cookies. Classic
    Sandwich filling: Plain peanut butter (or other nut butter)
    I love Gilmore Girls…I have all the dvds and when I lived by myself would just spend weekends watching them wishing I lived in Stars Hollow.
    Zo recently posted..in which I emulate my favorite former real housewife and meet some goals

    Favourite baked goods? Well well, I have not been much of a baker lately, but I like fruit pies. But I prefer un-baked goods:)
    Fave sandwich filling? PB, hummus, baba ganoush, sliced avocado…there are so many, I would put it all into one mega-sandwich:)

  21. So funny!
    Um, fave baked goods? I think I give this a different answer every time. Today, I think it will be a brownie for me please.

  22. I loved the ABCs of Emma! And I still can’t look at that photo of you and the banana guard without cracking up.

    Favourite baked good would have to be brownies: I just love the ooey-gooey texture. And sandwich filling at the moment is peanut flour and banana all mushed together on rye bread.

    Have a fab weekend :)

    ~Jessica~ recently posted..Fashionable Failings

  23. Ahh! My post today has facts about me, too!

    Baked goods? That’s a hard one! Anything chocolate. And cheesecake-flavored. Or maybe ice cream! As far as sandwich fillings go, I’d have to say PB&’nanner! Or tofu salad. Hopefully headed to the farmer’s market tomorrow! Weeeeee!

  28. I’m spending the weekend with my boyfriend, just relaxing! Although, I should be studying for my culinary school finals. Shhh, let’s forget they exist. Let me know how the hot yoga class goes! I’ve been wanting to try hot yoga for a really long time. I’m so addicted to the gym that I can’t even drag my ass to a yoga studio to take a regular class. Maybe if you tell me how amazing hot yoga is, I’ll have to give it a try.

  29. Sorry to hear you’re ill – really hope it gets sorted :-)

  30. I love all your pics! You are so photogenic even when pulling your signature crazy faces hehe

  31. awww, your pix never fail to crack me up, u’re adorable girl! love it! favorite baked good is so hard if u’ve got to pick just one. i’ll go with cinnamon roll with lots of icing maybe? i’d pass on picking cookies because i’d rather eat the dough straight before it’s baked so that works well. :)

    top sandwich pick will be turkey with lots of mustard, lettuce, and tomatoes! :)

    oh, and long runs rule! :)
