I've been MEME'D!!!

I visited Tawana's blog to find out that I have been tagged. I really like this one!!!

ACCENT: American, unless I am talking to my family or excited or angry, then it is Trinidadian. Oh, and sometimes a few Spanish words fly out when I am frustrated.

BREAKFAST OR NO BREAKFAST: Breakfast, and it must include orange juice or tea.

CHORE I DON'T CARE FOR: Washing dishes (Hate it!)

DOG OR CAT:Don't have one, but I think I would like an orange Tabby. CAT!!!

ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: Laptop, Cell, Mp3 and my Camera.

FAVORITE COLOGNE: Yves St. Laurent Babydoll. It smells like Guava. Who wouldn't want to smell like an exotic fruit?

GOLD OR SILVER: Silver jewelry. Gold Makeup.

HANDBAG I CARRY MOST OFTEN: I just bought a knitpickers bag and I seem to be able to squeeze everything into it. It's wonderful.

INSOMNIA: Especially when I am knitting or on Ravelry.

JOB TITLE: Powerpoint Presentation Specialist I.

KIDS: None of my own. Two God-daughters. Symara (6) and Carissa (5).

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Bought a Condo with my mom when the owner of our previus apartment decided to sell the house. This is the best house I have ever lived in.

MOST ADMIRABLE TRAIT: I am a "Go with the flow" kind of person, I am always optimistic, and I don't settle for Mediocrity.

NAUGHTIEST CHILDHOOD BEHAVIOR: Play with mommy's makeup and jewelry.

OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: Heart surgery when I was 2. Follow-up heart surgery when I was 4. The X-ray found a hole after they bypassed a constricted artery. Whoo Thank God it's all over!!!

PHOBIAS: Losing what I have worked hard to gain/accomplish. Losing friendships.

QUOTE: Great Love Involves Great Risk

REASON TO SMILE: I am alive, I believe in God (Jesus!!), I live to enjoy every day to the fullest.

SIBLINGS: 1 Brother

TIME I WAKE UP: Usually 6:30 to get to work at 9. If they reduce hours, I can sleep in until 7:30 and get to work at 10.

UNUSUAL SKILL OR TALENT: I can cook, have a phone conversation, hold a baby, and yell at three other misbehavin kids.... and still have dinner not burn. And, I'm not even married yet. LOL!!!


WORST HABIT: I try to do too many things in one day, end up being really tired, and still go to bed at 1 or 2 am. Then do it all over again the next day.

YUMMY STUFF: Pinkberry with mango, pineapple, and coconut. Red velvet cake, White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake. Cherry Baby Smoothie from GNC.

ZOO ANIMAL I LIKE MOST: Fish. They are quiet, and pretty.

Ok so that is me from A-Z. Now I will tag Deborah

What a fab meme! I cracked up at "who wouldn't want to smell like an exotic fruit?" Who indeed? I like smelling like a coconut. I'll bet I'm going to get tagged with this eventually.
