I was tagged last week to do this post by Cam from Bibs and Baubles. You remember when blogging was just about getting to know each other and not just sponsored posts and getting page views? So today, I’m going back old school, and doing this getting to know you post! Feel free to join in and tag me!
A) Attached or single: Attached! Going on 8 years this August!!!( Hallelujah!)
B) Best Friend: I don’t have one. I have a group. The collective. These are the women who’ve known me since I was 14. I may go for months without talking to one, but if I picked up the phone and said help, they would be there.
C)Cake or Pie: Cake Cake Cake Cake Cake…( in my Rhianna Voice)
D)Day of Choice: Saturday: Because I just like the idea that we have a whole day to do absolutely nothing. Of course, that never happens…
E)Essential Item:Cell Phone. I am lost without my iPhone. Its got my calendar, my schedule, notes, twitter, pinterest, the camera………
F)Favorite Color: I don’t have one. Sad I know

H)Hometown: Southeast DC baby!
I)Favorite Indulgence: Reading a book at Starbucks…alone…..
J)January or July: JULY! I love the summer!
K)Kids: One, the Pookah bear. The baby fever has hit, but it’s only hit me. Still waiting on the final word from CDub…..
L)Life isn’t complete without: Coffee.
M)Marriage Date: August 26, 2005
N)Number of brothers/sisters: I have two brothers. One who is older, but adopted( so he came AFTER me.) And my baby brother who is 28.

T)Tag 5 people: you,you you you and …..YOU!
U)Unknown fact about me: I’m actually shy. But my mother taught me how to get around it. No one who meets me would ever suspect that on the inside, I have no desire to talk. That I just want to fade in the background and have no one take notice of me…..
V) Vegetable: Collard Greens. Yes. I said it.
W) Worst Habit: I bite my nails, It’s a habit I’ve never been able to break. Probably has something to do with that shyness…
X) X ray or ultrasound: I’ve had tons of xrays. They are boring. Ultrasounds are usually very exciting.
Y) Your favorite foods: Steak. Medium Well. On the grill, in the oven, in a restaurant, marinated…….
Now it’s YOUR turn!!!
Hey guys, I always see a lot of things on the web that I want to share, but don’t always get a chance to. So, I thought I’d start sharing on the weekends. For those times when you are laying around a little bored and want some entertainment without moving from your comfortable spot in the bed or on the couch.
We know we love Scandal. And if you don’t check out Luvvie’s Scandal Recaps on Friday Morning….go get you a piece!
There was this post from Jen over at People I want to Punch in the Face in response to this article over at the Huffington Post. Or rather, the comments on the post. Now whether you agree or disagree, both articles are worth reading.
And this from Jessica F Hinton on writing Beautiful Things. I pink puffy heart this post.
And finally, the one on Making Dreams Come True. And yes, I downloaded the quote and printed it out.
So that’s my short little list of posts that made an impact on my this week/month. How about you? Any good ones to share?
It’s been a minute, and I love doing these posts so….
Watching: SCANDAL!!! Between FLOTUS giving head in the shower, hot sex up against a wall at a christening, Quin being a “natural” and new stalker guy, I am short of breath STILL!. I love this show.
Listening To: A Tribe called Quest. Because half of this mess they are playing on the radio is just that: MESS. These fools need to go back to the drawing board.
Planning: My commute to my new job that starts Monday. Truth be told, I’m excited, nervous, apprehensive uncertain all at the same damn time. But I’m stepping out on faith here. Because my life needs stability. My life needs a change. This is what I need. I worry about working with new personalities, learning the job, making new work friends. But God works in mysterious ways, because one of my very good friends, the nurse who delivered Pookah is also starting at the SAME job on Monday. I.am.too.excited!!!!
Thinking About: The fact that I gave up Starbucks for Lent. Right before I start a new job. DUDE! What was I thinking? I’m not even Catholic!!
Looking Forward To: Not sticking my hand in other women’s va jay jays for a while. #pow
Reading: I’ve got a list! Since I’ll be commuting to work via train, I’m going to have time to read again. So excited about that. I think I’ll catch up on your garden variety romance novel first.
Making Me Happy: Just….life. Things are looking up!
I spent all weekend taking care of a sick Pookah.
Of course, he is now on the mend, and I am going downhill.
So I have nothing else to say.
Except: Beyonce DID THAT! DAYUM. Blue Ivy’s Mama showed up and showed out.
And immediately afterwards, she announced a world tour. Stopping in the ATL this summer. Well, I guess I’ll be pinching my pennies for that!
Ok, that is all.
How was your weekend?
