Emily and Lindsay Comparisons

Some writers will tell you that there is always a little bit of themselves in their characters. I have to agree with that. Some writers will also tell you to write what you know. That is something I can't argue with. Therefore, I thought this would make an interesting post. Below, I'm going to list the characteristics that are common between myself and Emily.

-Anxiety. Emily suffers from just a little bit of anxiety from the abuse she suffered from her mother. I also have anxiety, but mine is more severe than Emily's. There will be a book with a character like myself this coming year hopefully.

-Our love of hockey and Sidney Crosby. I love going to hockey games and I love Sidney Crosby. A lot of Emily's opinions of Crosby are my own. Emily seems more of a fanatic though.

-Looks. Emily looks a bit like myself in terms of eye color and hair color. Hence, why I am on the cover of my book.

-Ice Cream- In Sweetness, Emily goes to Dairy Queen and orders a banana split. It is Emily's favorite as well as my own. However, I'm not as big of a fan of Cold Stone as Emily. Why? Because their servings are too big for me! Emily's favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's (Chunky Monkey) is also my favorite.

Those are a few things that Emily and myself have in common. What do you have in common with Emily?

Let's Talk Celebrity Crushes!

In the series, it is evident that Emily has a crush on Sidney Crosby. I wanted to end the day on a lighter note than I started it. Below you can find all of my celebrity crushes and why.

Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Sidney Crosby. Yes, I share Emily's love. Not only is Crosby yummy to look at, but he is also a fantastic hockey player.


Next is the hot Ryan Gosling. He played Noah in The Notebook and Jacob in Crazy, Stupid, Love. I love both of those movies and Gosling does a great job acting in both. LOVE!


Shemar Moore is one good looking man and I love his character on Criminal Minds. What's not to love?


Do not give me that look! Yes, Brian Williams is on my list. I don't know why, but I love him on Nightly News and think he happens to be good looking for his age. :)

Have you seen the show Bones? Then why are you wondering why I have a crush on this guy...or maybe the character he plays...or both! :)

These are my top five celebrity crushes. Are any of my crushes on your list? Who are your crushes?
