Getting to know you

Keely has an awesome little Getting to know you question thing a ma bobber going on today. It sounded like a whole lotta fun so I decided to join in. If you want to join in too just click on Keely's name and you will be magically redirected to her site where you can play along.



1. How old are you?

Today I am 28 years old and tomorrow I will be 28 still but next month I will be one year closer to 30 :-O Scary huh? No, really the age thing doesn't bother me at all. Maybe because I am still carded when I buy lottery tickets (you have to be 18 to buy those) or maybe just because I wasn't raised to be afraid or ashamed of age. I dunno, but anyway I am 28 years old!

2.Where are you from and where do you live now?

I was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and currently I am living in Virginia Beach, VA. Soon I will be living in Chicago, IL.

3. What music have you been diggin lately?

I love Usher, I will always love Usher but I do like Ne-Yo too. Lately I have been listening to a whole lot of Ne-Yo. I am also really getting into the Christmas spirit and I was just telling Dewayne today that I want to get the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas CD. My boys would love that!!

4. Favorite food(s)?

I love Italian food....Chicken Parmesan, Lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo, etc. Too bad I don't know how to make these things...well I do know how to make an awesome Lasagna. I just need to learn how to make the rest of these things. My Aunt Sharla was just telling me how to make Alfredo sauce the other day and I really need to try it out. Oh and I want to try out the Pioneer Womans Chicken Parmesan that Mama M told me about. Yummy, now I am hungry!!

5. Single,married, divorced?

I am married to my wonderful, sweet, OCD, know it all, best Daddy, trying to be best Husband in the whole wide world.

6. Kids? If so, how many and how old?

I have four sons and one daughter. My sons are
Tyrique who is going to be 13 in February.
Markus who is 9 and a half.
Jalen (Dewayne's son) who is 5 as of August.
Kobe who is 2.
And last but not least my Daughter Maya who is 7.5 months old....ok ok already, Maya is my dog but I love her as my own. Besides, I don't have any human daughters so my dog daughter is just as good :o) I'm not nuts, I promise!!! Maya is treated like a dog in this house and she doesn't think she is human!!!

7. What are 3 blogs you read daily?

I read a lot more than 3 blogs a day. Sometimes I have a hard time keeping up with all my blogs....life gets in my way :o)

8. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition?

Eating dinner at 6 pm on Christmas Eve. We eat dinner at 6 on the dot and everyone is wearing their Christmas best. We eat and clean the kitchen then it is time to open presents. I love it and I will go into more detail later this month.

9. Lastly, if you're a blogger, how long have you been blogging and if you don't have one..how long have you been reading blogs?

I have been a blogger for a few years now. I started blogging on my Myspace page and then in May of 2008 I decided to start blogging on here. I wasn't really good about blogging until a few months ago. I always had such a hard time trying to figure out what to write but now I love blogging and can usually come up with something off the top of my head by the time I sit down at the computer and start to type. I must say though that I am always thinking of new topics to blog about and I try to write them down so I don't forget them. As for how long I have been reading blogs....since about May time frame last year. I had no idea the blog world existed until then. Man I wish I would have known about this when I was home on bed rest with Kobe. I definitely would have been able to keep myself occupied all day!


Wow, that was a lot of fun, dontcha think??? If you wanna play along hop on over to Keely's blog and join in!!
