I was awarded the
Liebster Award by the lovely blog For
A Lucky Girl. I have answered
11 questions about myself below. In order to make this more fun, I have decided
to extend this award to each of you. Please answer these 11 questions
on your blog and let me know on a comment below. I would love to get to know
you better! XO.
1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Ready? The sound people make when
they eat Doritos. Icannot sit next to somebody eating them. It bothers me so
much that if I have no option and find myself obligated to sit next to someone who
is eating them, I will eat some too in order to block out the noise with my
own noise. I know, weird! I did ask if you were ready.
2. What would you
sing at Karaoke night? Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You
3. If you could have dinner with any celebrity
(dead or alive) who would you dine
with? Esther from the
Hebrew Bible. She was graceful, brave, loyal toher people, and faithful to God. She was an orphan who had
nothing, but became the queen of the Persian Empire, and did a beast of a job at
4. What is your top played song on iTunes?
It changes every week, but my
favorite song this week has been “Song
of Solomon by Jesus Culture “. This song reminds me how big
the love of God is for me. He has always been there through the valleys, and
the dark of night. The biggest mountain and the deepest of the sea seem so
small before Him. It’s refreshing to have a love like that.
5. If you had to pick your last meal on Earth what would it be?
The Caribbean girl in me loves everything seafood. I would go with
a seafood paella.
6. If you could live
in the world of any movie/book/TV show, what story would you
If I had to pick one movie, it would be the
Time Traveler’s Wife
or Inception. I love the Time Traveler’s Wife because of the
beautiful scenery, and the love story behind it. But Inception would be my
second choice. I would not mind being stuck in time with Leonardo DiCaprio

Oreos? One bite at a
8. If you could be anyone in the world (besides
yourself) would you do it? Who would you be?
No, I love myself even though that
was not always the case. I
wish I could go back to my teenage years. I would tell
myself to stop worrying, and that everything was going to turn out
9. Who is your
ultimate fashion icon?
Oscar De La Renta for his timeless,
simple, and elegant
What is the funniest pick-up line that has been used on you?
I have a long list of horrible pick
up lines, but the most
recent one happened at the car wash. A guy approached me while I waited for my car, and it went
something like this:
remember me? We went to high schooltogether.
Me: I am not Shaniqua, and I do not know
Guy: Sorry, you just look so familiar.
Would you give me your number?
You can imagine how that ended after such a horrible pick up
11. Do you
watch Star Wars in chronological order (4, 5, 6, 1,

so much fun sharing details about me. Can't wait to read your
I am in the delivery room anxiously waiting to meet you. Your grandmother is here in the delivery room, while your father stepped out to the vending machine. Truth is, he's too excited and too nervous to sit still.
There is something you don't know, and might never fully understand, and that is the extent of our love for you. We prayed for you for five long years, and God has finally granted us the honor of welcoming you to this world.
You have been blessed with two exceptional parents. Your father is the second best man in the world, the first one is your grandfather (he raised your mother and I). Your father is kind, honest, smart, humble and a man of honor. You are going to learn so much from him! Your mother is loving, caring, strong, wise, diligent, an amazing sister, an amazing daughter, and an amazing wife. I cannot wait to see her play the role of mother.
The photo pictured on this post was taken on our last family trip, the one we took on December 2014, five months before you were born. Your mother and I were sitting on an airplane 36,000 ft above ground. Elizabeth (your aunt), and I were trying to negotiate the seat next to your mother's seat because she is just the type of person you feel safe around.
My little Adam, when life gets turbulent remember that you have been blessed with the best co-pilots in the world (your mother and father). Remember that we prayed for you for five years. For five long years the world waited for you, and you are finally here. You are more than special. Be kind and courageous, the God who gifted you to this world will protect and watch over you all the days of your life.
Easter Sunday is my favorite holiday of the year. It's nice having a day to "officially" celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. My Easter Sunday traditions involve putting on a little Spring dress, attending church to celebrate the life of my savior, and then sharing a meal with family or friends.
Do you have any Easter Sunday traditions? I would love to hear.
