Can you tell that when I was trying to come up with a new Question of the Week, I asked Tyler for his suggestions on what would make a good question? LOL. My answer to this is definitely college football. There are a few reasons why I enjoy it more than pro- probably the tradition, the cheerleading (some of my fondest memories were from my college cheerleading days!), the great rivalries... I don't have any one team that I like watching above all else- I'll pretty much watch everything- especially if it's a close game. Naturally my favorite team is the Monmouth College Fighting Scots (my alma mater), but I also enjoy watching some of the exciting Big Ten and SEC matchups. Below is one of my best college football memories- the homecoming pep rally senior year when Tyler proposed to me in front of more than 1,000 people. It was magical! Below that one- a couple of basketball cheer pics- if you look closely at the pyramid pic- you'll see Tyler spotting the pyramid! He was among a group of football players recruited to stunt with us during basketball season :D
♥ Emily's Journal ♥
Journal time! How is everyone! I had an interesting day today- probably one of my favorite live reports EVER during our morning newscast. As you probably know- tonight is the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars- and to sort of commemorate the event- our ABC affiliated station put me to the test- learning the cha cha within about 2 hours! I paired up with a dance instructor from a local college... and I have NO formal ballroom dance training- but I had a blast and actually learned quite a bit! All throughout the newscast my co-anchor checked in with me live to see what kind of progress I was making. In the end I performed a small part of the routine. You can check it out by clicking here. Let's see what else is going on... OH. I am LOVING Robin Meade's (CNN Headline News Anchor) new book "Morning Sunshine!" I think I started reading it Thursday and I'm almost finished. It's the type of book you can't put down. Obviously I'd enjoy this book because I'm invovled in TV news and Robin Meade is a huge inspiration to me- but her message- "how to radiate confidence and feel it too"- is so great for absolutely anyone. Thank you so much to my sister for sending this to me! It's actually funny how it worked out- she had tweeted me that she was sending me a surprise in the mail. I had no idea what it was. Not long after- I had tweeted that I was headed to Barnes & Noble to pick up Robin's book! Went there- and couldn't find it! Meanwhile my sister (Pup) tweeted back- no don't get it! That was the surprise! LOL! I guess it all worked out in the end!
Have a great rest of the day! :D
