15 Random Things About Me…..

I saw this post on my fellow Mocha Moms Arianne’s blog (Love, Peace & Tiny Feet) and decided to copy! I thought her post was pretty cool and I admit I didn’t know any of those things about her before reading that post. So here are 15 random things about me! Enjoy…

1). My two favorite shows growing up were The Cosby Show and A Different World. I actually wanted to go (and did go) to college because of these two shows. I couldn’t wait to hang out and be in “The Pit”. I think I even looked up Hillman College to see if it was real.

2). When I was young my mother wanted to teach me how to cook but I told her I was going to have a cook because I am going to be famous! So, I didn’t learn and I am not famous, yet. Can I cook? You can answer that question. I am much better now though. I am self-taught!

3). I am from Evanston, IL and small suburb outside of the Windy City. I love where I am from and always wish I could go back more than I do. My memories growing up all the people that contributed to my life back then are priceless.

4). I love HOUSE music! Growing up in Chicago, that is what we were used too. You don’t hear too much of that in the Dirty South, but if you put on “It’s time for the Per-cu-later!” You will see a different side of me quick!

5). I secretly always wanted a sister. I have two brothers who are 7 & 5 years younger than me (1 is deceased), but I always wanted a sister. All my best girl friends have them and it’s just a bond I always longed for.

6) My favorite fast food restaurant is WHITE CASTLE (in Chicago!) & Chic-fil-a (in Georgia). Every time I go home I have stop and get me 2 double cheeseburgers and fries! But I can tell I am either getting older or my body is used to eating healthy because the last time I had white castle, my tummy was mad at me!

7) My guilty pleasure, one thing I will NEVER GIVE UP > French Fries! Now that I eat healthy, I oven fry them in olive oil on 440 or even make sweet potato fries. But I will never give them up!

8). I want to write a book about all my secrets!! LOL But then my secrets will be out! So…maybe I shouldn’t write the book!

9) I really really really want to be on Dancing with the Stars! I hope I can one day.

10). I still don’t know my real purpose in life yet. I have been searching, praying, hoping for it to be revealed to me since I was 23. And I still don’t fully have it. I have pieces of it > motivating and informing people < but still don't know how or when it's going to fully manifest.

11). I believe in God and Jesus! I also am very intrigued in the afterlife, ex: Angels. I believe Heaven exist and hope to be there one day.

12). I created a Vision Board and things have really come to pass. I am praying I can meet Oprah in person one day too. She is a MAJOR inspiration in my life. I am glad she is one person that knows her purpose/passion and followed her dreams.

13). My favorite two movies are The Color Purple (I have seen it over 30 times) but never read the book! #Gottareadthebook. I even saw the Color Purple on Broadway when I was 8 months pregnant! #Lifechanging. My other favorite movie is Love Jones! I know the feeling of that kind of LOVE!

14.) I love SCRABBLE! My first lady (Pastors Wife) got me hooked years back and now I think I am a beast in the game. But she still beats me when we play! Although I am not fond of my scrabble phone app.

16 Bonus) Lastly, I love my children and being a mommy but IT IS REALLY THE HARDEST JOB IN THE WORLD! #whoknew OH! AND SO IT BEING A WIFE!
Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me!

    so… are we the same person! I tell everyone that the Cosby Show and A Different World are the reason I ended up at an HBCU!

    House music was pretty big in Detroit, where I’m from. I know all about the Per-cu-lator!

    White Castle is a must whenever I’m at home. It doesn’t work with my healthy eating either.

    French Fries have been my guilty pleasure for as long as I can remember!

    Putting the pieces of my purpose together too.

    God and Jesus -yep!

    The Color Purple and Love Jones – yep!

    I think I’ve said enough. LOL!

    I love to find out about people more. I have never wanted a sister because I see so many of them fight when I was younger that I was like nope can’t do. I do have friends that are like sisters and I love them. I love scrabble also I play on the hubs xbox sometimes and it helps keep my mind young.

    Love Jones is my movie. I found the DVD a few weeks ago doing some cleaning and couldn’t wait for the kids to go to sleep so I could watch it and recite every line word for word!

    I am an only child and I have longed for a sister as well.

    I love to be fashionably fly..I think I do a decent job at it shopping at the Goodwill. I have no extra coins but I’ve found a way..it takes time but I do what I can!!

    Yesss! I thought Hillman was real to. My parent didn’t go to college so that was my first peek into college life and good for me, my experience was very similar otherwise I would’ve felt bamboozled!!
