The sassy Ticka over at Spoon Full of Sugar has tagged me and I am going on with the get along.   It was actually kind of fun trying to figure out how to answer and what to ask. Interesting indeed.

4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.

2.   I ran track year round from 4th grade until my 2nd year in college with VERY SMALL breaks.

4.   I am a morning person with night owl tendencies.
5.   I collect socks...character and prints.
6.   I don't wear white athletic socks.

8.   I want to join an adult double dutch team.
9.   I am a homebody at heart but enjoy spending time with family and friends.
10. I am a BIG sports fan. My mom calls me the son she never had and the Mr. LOVES it.
11. I am a BIG music lover.  I can probably find at least one song from every genre that I like.

My Answers to Ticka's Questions:

1. Where did you grow up? The Boogie Down Bronx and the DMV (DC metro area)

2. Have you ever travelled outside of the country?  Yes...but would love to do it more often.

3. What is style to you? Style is being able to fashionably and authentically express who you are with carefully infusing current trends.

4. How has your style changed over the past few years? My style has matured and I've been allowing myself to loosen up just a little.  Still a work in progress though.

5. What is your greatest accomplishment?  I would like to say my career (which I am proud of) but honestly I feel it is building the family I have.

6. What/who makes you smile? My fellas...Tony Mac, Tre' and Devan, pair of new shoes, socks, and a great find at the thrift store...just to name a few.

7. Do you have a piece of clothing that you refuse to give up or throw away?  Ummm...yeah!  Too many.  That's my problem.  The vast majority of my closet is older than my children.  Trends cycle you know and I like to be prepared...pfft.

8. Who is your greatest influence?  My mom...she is amazeballs! 

9. What size shoe do you wear? I wear a 9 wide but most stores don't carry wides, so I just get a 10.

10. Who's the most famous person you've ever met?  I believe the most famous person would have to be Carl Lewis.

11. What's your favorite meal to prepare?  I guess it would have to be my slow roasted beef and whatever else I cook with it.
