Hello, my friends!
I am over the moon to be a part of the morning show. I am finally living proof of that old saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
I was born in New York, although I call myself a Ken Caryl girl… A Chatfield graduate to be exact. And my many adventures have brought me everywhere from Europe to California. The stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, to the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. And after years of soul searching, two broken engagements, four different colleges, and millions of hours in the restaurant industry, here I am. Yappin yer ear off on Mix 100.
A quick breakdown of moi includes, but is not limited to:
1. I would gratefully eat sushi for each meal every day of my life if I could afford it.
2. My dirty little secrets include, but are not limited to: a full-on nail polish addiction, Bryan Fuller television series, live bar trivia, Goonies/Pretty Woman quotes, Daddy-Daughter meals, boxed-wine consumption, Marilyn Monroe and Beatles snapshot collecting, and The Gin Blossoms. I freaking love the Gin Blossoms.
3. My doggie, Kramer, is the cutest Shih Tzu on the planet; quite possibly the cutest dog in the world. It’s really not fair to other pups how ridiculously adorable my Kramer is.
4. Friends are my family, and my family is my life… And oh how I love to embarrass my sucker friends and family.
5. I, without fail, say what everyone is thinking but too scared to voice out loud. It’s a blessing… And a curse. (As I’m sure you know from listening to the show!)
Let's be friends! I'm good for a chuckle or three. And please, keep listening to Dom in the Morning with Emily and Jeremy weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!

19 Things I Learned While In Florida

by Emily Makinzie posted Sep 3 2014 5:53AM
I just got back from a lovely vacation in Florida. My Daddio and my bestie live there, and I took advantage of free room and board near the ocean. While being near water did make my heart happy, as the saying goes there is NO PLACE like home. Sheesh. Colorado, I heart you. 
I took notes during my trip, because Florida truly is a different world. I totally appreciate Flaaaa for it's quirky beauty, and here are some important things I felt needed to be shared...

1. A/C is a necessity, not a privilege.
2. Floridians don't appreciate complaints about the humidity. They live there, you don't. Shut it.
3. It is impossible to NOT have the time of your freaking life when on a jet ski. 
4. The trailer parks are nice. Like. Nicer than my neighborhood nice.
5. There is a color of tan exclusive to Florida. It's a shade between brick red and I-just-got-back-from-the-surface-of-the-sun brown.
6. Makeup is futile.
7. People in Florida abide by "Island Time" even though it's not a freaking island.
8. No bartender knows what a 'press' is, cocktaily speaking. (It's a blend between soda and Sprite, and it's pretty dang common in the Upper 49.)
9. However, there is live music at all hours of the day in every bar. This makes up for the 'press' fiasco.
10. Geckos are everywhere. On your screens, in your cushions, under your tables... In your BED. (Dad's are good at Gecko removal, though. *Sigh of relief*)
11. Floridians don't fear a Sharknado. Why? Because they believe that s Sharktopus is a more real, frightening threat. (Google it. You will either be amazed or ashamed.)
12. The grass in Florida is not soft... but everyone's skin is.
13. Riding in the bed of a pickup truck, on a sofa seat that has been sawed off from a bigger couch, sipping a Michelob, is a normal Thursday activity.
14. You're a bird watcher whether you want to be or not.
15. Wearing underware, as opposed to a swim suit, is over dressing.
16. After Florida, you will want a roll of paper towels on the table when you dine out. That is a Florida trend I can get behind. (I may or may not be a sloppy eater.)
17. Say goodbye to straight hair and say hello to slippery skin.
18. Hulk Hogan is a cool dude. (Please see: #5, #11, and #15.)
19. I did not see ONE other redhead the entire week I was in The Sunshine State. Coincidence? I think not.

Glad to be home.
