I've been tagged!

Oh, so new in this blogging world. Sure, I have been writing on an online journal on our family website, but I never considered myself a blogger. Now, I am getting addicted! Is there a blog rehab I will have to one day attend?

So, I was tagged to participate in a restaurant list by Lisa.

Here are the rules:

1. Link to name of person that tagged you.

2. Include state and country you live in.

3. List top 5 favorite local restaurants.

4. Tag 5 other people and let them know they’ve been tagged.

Number #4 is going to present a problem for me. You see, as I am just getting into this, I don't know as many people who are blogging. And then, Lisa tags Tracey, and Tracey goes and tags Deb. Come'on people, I don't have many to tag!! So, if you have signed my blog in the comment section, watch out--I'm coming after you!!

I live in Allen, TX, but I do most things in either Plano or Dallas. Just have the residence in Allen.

OK, not a foodie like my friend Dana, but I'll give this a try. In no particular order

1) Blue Fish--My favorite sushi spot. This is my treat spot to be a "lady who lunches." Bonus of this place--they offer brown rice sushi. Delicious! Oh, and the Tuna Tower? Don't watch when Larissa and I start scrapping the plate to get all the last bits of it!

2) Nicola's--at the Shops at Legacy. Nice Italian food, but I know a cool guy there!

3) Fireside Pies--I'm not a pizza girl, except when it comes to Fireside Pies. Brick oven pizzas and a raspberry cheesecake that is TO DIE FOR!!

4) La Duni--I was taken here for the first time in January for a birthday lunch for my girlfriend Cameron. She said it was her favorite place to go when celebrating. I quickly found out it is because not only is the food absolutely delicious, the DESSERT!! Wow, that is a dessert menu. I was almost overwhelmed to figure out what to get. Settled on some fried banana with ice cream dessert.

5) Naan--my other favorite sushi spot. More expensive than Blue Fish, so I only go as a treat. Love it! Rainbow Roll, passion fruit martini, and a fried ice cream---HEAVEN!

Now, I tag Amy (ha--we're making you blog!), Tracy, Dehlia, Elle, and my sweet friend Melissa. Dodging a bullet, Rich, because if you had a blog, you would definitely have been tagged!!

Rich is getting some serious peer pressure to blog, especially from his new Austin mancrush (don't ask). He says he's afraid that he would set one up and then post every few months.

So then I offered to set up him up as a registered author on my blog, and that way he could "share" Minivan Mom. I think he's mulling it over.

And I am mulling over the idea to post occasionally on your blog. Think "Tuesdays With Morrie," except it wouldn't be Morrie....It would be me.

Yay!! I am so glad that you are blogging! I have been following your journals since Allie. What a beauty she was. I am so glad that you are going to be continuing your journey with writing. I love how you write things! And it will be so much fun to "watch" Maggie grow up!! She is so adorable!!

Melissa said...

And boy, I may need to take trip you way just for La Duni!!!!!

Tracy said...

I want to hear about the MANCRUSH!!! I think it would be fun to hear more from you Rich!!

I just did my meme, but it wasn't easy. We don't go out much since the kids. I really need to find a good babysitter!!

Glad to see you're blogging! I've kept you and your family in my prayers for a few years now.

God's blessings!

Yes, blogging is addictive. You can do it anytime of the night or day and can find any topic that you want. What could be better than that? Oh, a piece of raspberry cheesecake would be better, but alas, I guess it will be strawberries on poundcake tonight. No good cheesecake places around here. Have a good day!

Elle said...
