Nine Truths And A Lie

Hey everyone,

I wanted to do a get to know me kind of blog because a lot of people are new followers and may not know too much about me. I have written 10 facts about me and/or my family. Nine of them are true and one is false, see if you can guess which one is false. I will tell you which one was at the very end of the post :).

1. I am Jamaican. I was born there and both of my parents were born there as well. My mom is Black Jamaican and my dad is Indian Jamaican. I still have quite a bit of family that lives there.

2. I went to University of South Florida. I originally wanted to be a doctor so I have a B.S. in Biomedical Science and a masters in Medical Science.

3.  My first son, Tony Gaskins III or T,  was a preemie baby. I had him at 7 months and he spent 3 1/2 months in the NICU. His first three years were rough and we spent a lot of time in doctors offices and emergency rooms. By the grace of God, he is now doing amazing and people who didn't know him them can't tell he ever had anything wrong.

4. I got married when I was 20 years old. I was a sophomore in college. I was really young but also extremely mature. I've always carried myself as if I was older than I actually am.

5. Before I had Tayden, I competed in fitness competitions in the bikini division. At some point (maybe when Tayden is older), I would like to try and compete again just to show myself I can do it.

6. We would like to have two more kids. We plan to try again for another when Tayden is about 2 1/2.

7. I am a quality over quanity type person. I am not one of those girls with a huge group of girl friends but the ones I do have are amazing. If I consider you my friend, then I got your back for life.

8. I am extremely shy, if I don't know the people I am around. But once I get to know you, I will talk your head off lol. I also get really nervous doing any type of public speaking which is why the hubby and I haven't done a seminar together yet.

9. I am really tough and extremely competitive. I was raised with boy cousins so I learned how to be tough and defend myself at a very young age. Tony used to always joke that he felt I had more testosterone than other women lol.

10. Losing all of the baby weight after my second baby has been a lot tougher than it was after my first. I am not stressing it or putting a lot of pressure on myself though. I want to make sure I take the time to enjoy my baby and I know I will continue to lose the weight if I eat healthy and train when I can.

Can you figure out which one is false?

If you guessed #6, you are right! We feel that with our two boys, our family is complete. I have always felt like I am a boy mom and we feel very blessed and fortunate to have T and baby Tayden.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you learned something new about me :).

  1. Shouldn't it be "quality over quantity..."

    1. You're right, guess I wrote that part to fast lol. Its a short read answering 7 of the most common questions people ask me about relationships :).

  3. Try not to mark your tyke verbally or rationally mark your tyke as a liar. A liar is something one is - a piece of one's being.

  4. Saw many blogs. Read many writings. This is something different. Something amazing.
