Old School Blogging…ABCs of Mimi

June 25, 2013

So I don’t need to tell you it’s been crazy around here to say the least. I’ve been tagged a few times in this challenge and I can’t remember exactly who tagged me so I won’t name them in the event I leave someone out. Charge it to my heart and not my crazy summer brain.

A. Attached or Single – Attached. Oh so attached to the most amazing corporate thug ever.



B. Best Friend – I am blessed to have a bunch of amazing besties on my team. Here are a few

Niya Birthday weekend

Brandye Addy and I

My birthday dinner

C. Cake or Pie – Cake. If you’ve ever had my Mother in Laws Red Velvet cake you totally understand why.

D.  Day of Choice – Sunday. It just feels easy. Lionel Richie was on to something.

E. Essential Item – I am assuming the basics like soap, water and toothpaste are a given. In that case I will go with my phone.

F. Favorite Color – Gray. All shades. Please don’t read too far into that. I’m talking about the color

G. Gummy Bears or Worms – Sour gummy worms. I sneak them in my purse after I buy them from the store so I don’t have to share.

H. Hometown – Washington, D.C.

I. Favorite Indulgence – Cuban or Jamaican food.

J. January or July – January. It just feels like a new beginning.

K. Kids – Two Birthed. One by marriage. Three in all.

L. Life isn’t complete without – God and a huge sense of faith

M. Marriage Date – September 2, 2005

N. Number of brothers and sisters – 0. Only child

O. Oranges or Apples – Fuji Apple. I despise soft fleshy apples. I like mine crispy

P. Phobias – Failure. I have noticed in my older age I am also slightly afraid of heights.

Q. Quotes – “Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future…it is simply believing God at His Word and taking the next step” – Joni Erikson Tada

R. Reasons to smile – A whole lot. To sum it all up…just waking up in the morning and having sense enough to believe God and work hard to be the best wife, mother and friend I can be.

S. Season of choice – Fall


T. Tag five people – Everyone I would’ve tagged has done it already. So if you are reading and want to do it, feel free to say I tagged you.

U. Unknown fact about me – I have this awful habit of ripping all of the labels off of bottles in our house. In layman terms none of the lotion, deodorant, hair car products, mouthwash etc. in this house has a label on it. I know. Weird.

V. Vegetable – Broccoli

W. Worst habit – Procrastination and biting my nails. They may or may not be linked.

X. X-Ray or Ultrasound – Ultrasound.

Y. Your favorite food – Plantains.

Z. Zodiac Sign-  I was born in March. I don’t really get into the whole zodiac thing.

    Sometimes I take labels off bottles that I keep in the shower like body wash to avoid them peeling off. Otherwise, I leave them on.

    Cool to know these things about you. I chuckled at corporate thug, all shades of Grey — I mean gray — and the weird label-peeling habit.

    I, too, find that the older I get, the less I like heights (I’ve never been afraid of heights). Weird.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

    This is a cool tag. I’m extremely private but think I might do this for my blog. Its always cool to learn different sides of people that you ordinarily wont see.

    You and DH are exactly the same about crisp apples! I’ll eat any but red delicious. He calls my soft apples “snow apples.” LOL!

    I hear you on hiding so you don’t have to share. I have been known to stand in a corner in the kitchen and stuff my face with treats before anyone can say “I want some”. LOL

    Cuban food = BOMB! Love it.

    Plantains… just tried from plantain chips with sea salt… deelish!

    Oh I feel you on the no soft apples business. I like honey crisp myself, but I will and do eat fuji apples in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, there is something to say about us pisces that like to procrastinate. Don’t know why.

    As for the labels, I don’t blame you. I have to wash every soap bottle in the house because I don’t like the way they feel covered in soap. Ewww. I like things nice and clean (and clean the tops of the lotion). Now that’s crazy.

      Umm yes. Cleaning the tops of the lotion bottle is a bit excessive!
