I've been tagged by Lovelyn

It has been a few days since I logged in since I started my new job. I was excited to have my own official cubicle that I can decorate! I just noticed that I have been tagged by Lovelyn to name seven little known things about me and then "tag" seven other bloggers. I don't think that I even know seven other bloggers!

1. I love SoapNet and Food Network. I do not actually watch a whole lot of television but I could seriously leave the TV on in the background 24/7 and not get tired of the programming. Rachael Ray's shows, Paula Deen, Food Finds, Unwrapped, Food Network Challenge, Ace of Cakes, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. I love it all...and Grey's Anatomy!

2. We went to White House, Jamaica on our honeymoon. I do not have one ounce of a feeling of wanting to return. I had it all dreamt out big and wonderful and beachy and it really wasn't all that. The scary shuttle ride to the other side of the island in the rain...he was going about 50 mph on these incredibly windy one lane roads dodging pedestrians along the way. Nothing like fearing for your life on your honeymoon, huh?! Our honeymoon was also bookended by hurricanes with much of the island life closed so no snorkeling, no excursions, no beautiful beach.

3. I have always said that if I ever had a baby girl that I wanted to name her Emma. I actually threw a pillow at the TV when Ross & Rachel on Friends named their baby Emma. It jumped the popularity on the name to #1 and #2 for the longest time. Yet it wasn't enough to discourage Jon & I from naming our baby girl Emma. When she was about four days old we started calling her our little Emma Cakes, a combination of her name and baby cakes. We even sing the "Patty Cakes" nursery rhyme to her as Emma Cakes!

4. I love, love, love icecream cakes from Dairy Queen. The fudge center with the crunchy chocolate cake crumbs is pure joy. I just wish they would create a Blizzard flavor with it. Yummy! This is probably part of how I gained 41 pounds when I was pregnant...which until now was just a secret between me, the nurse and Dr. Chesney!

5. I believe that when it storms and the power goes out that it is God's way of making the world remember the old days. The simple life. Seriously, do stores really need to be open every day of the week and twenty four hours a day? I have to admit that I am surprised that places are even still closed on Christmas Day.

6. I love Gary Allan. I have followed his career since I was 17 and a picture of him & I backstage at a concert in Indianapolis was featured in an issue of Country Weekly magazine back in 1998. I am the only fan to have been at all of his fan club parties during Fan Fair here in Nashville. I attended the party last year just nine days before Emma was born. She was kicking up a storm when he took to the stage and to this day she still dances away to his CD in the car. He is awesome and yes I know I am cheesy with my admiration!

7. I have an obsession with reading about celebrity gossip. I don't really know where it comes from. I discovered People, Perez Hilton, Celebrity Baby Blog, Mama Pop, etc and I find myself checking them out almost every time I get online. Mostly the CBB and People though. I love the CBB for all the links to amazing baby gear and products!

Okay, I did it and I really don't have a clue on who to tag. :)
