My name is Emily, and I live in mid-Michigan with my wonderful husband Nate.  We have two cats, Peyton and Anakin. Peyton is definitely the one in charge of basically everything.  And to answer the next question I’m sure many of you have – he was named after Peyton Manning.  We have tried and tried to control his antics, but he’s proven to us time and again that he will have the last laugh! (Telling him “no” comes with a furrowed brow, and an under the breath meow that can only be a profanity towards one of we humans).  It’s hard catching him in a good picture, but when I do it’s worth sharing

I hope someday Jeopardy has a tournament specifically for us lovers of the entertainment industry…though I won’t hold my breath.

I hope that you enjoy my blog, and keep in touch! I love to learn new things and share that I have learned with everyone else.
