My friend Emily

Our neighbor is famous! We are very proud of her – she has come such a long way! Yall might have heard of her, her name is Emily Maynard, and she is on the Bachelorette.

Okay, okay. So we don’t really know her exactly. And by neighbor, I mean out of our neighborhood and up the street about a mile. BUT – I pass her house on my way to work every day.

I can prove it! Look familiar?


And here's one of the frequent limos outside of her house. 




Dan likes to pretend we are friends with her by saying things like, “Is Emily coming over for the Bachelorette tonight?” and “I think she should pick Arie. I’d get along with him best.” Sorry Dan. Was I not supposed to tell people you watch the Bachelorette? He is forced into it, I swear!

AND if Emily has any Google alerts set up, she now thinks we are super creepy and is currently putting her house on the market. Or filing a restraining order. I promise we are normal. Really.

It’s amazing, actually, that it took me this long to figure it out. I always knew she lived in Charlotte .. but this isn’t the smallest of cities. They showed her house on Brad’s season, and they showed her house on sneak peeks of her season. It wasn’t until they showed the neighbors house, before I thought, “hey, that looks familiar.” I’m horribly unobservant. Details are not my strong suit.

Well, I gotta run. My friend Landon and I have a date with Emily tonight. ABC. 8 pm.

    1. So far I haven't seen her outside! But last week she had a big "Happy Birthday" sign on the front door. I would guess it was Ricki's birthday.
