Okay, welcome back to my party. This is the part where I introduce myself and tell you all about my life. I'm sure you will expect something warm and heartfelt. You may even expect me to divulge some God-awful secret about my past. Well sorry Mommies, that's not going to happen.

You see, I am silly. I like to have fun. Like to make light of all the wrong situations. Did I mention my name is Keonte'? I have been called Kea, Keen, Keyonce, Chelle, Kega, Smith, Ke Lo Lo, and 'hey girl' (gotta love it). Are these enough options for you?

Out of all the names mentioned above, the name I love the most is MOMMY. I am the unconventional mother of one son. I often mention my goddaughter, Mariah, as my adopted child. No, I am not seriously adopting her, but I love her so much, I can't imagine treating her any less than my own. Kaden, my son, is my love. Although he suffers from the only-child syndrome, as I have for 28 years, I still find him extremely charming and overly caring in his young boyhood. Let me share a mini photo-shoot of Kaden when had LOTS of hair:




Yeah, I know, your daughter wants his number. Just kidding. Lighten up!
Doesn't the last pic remind you of Ben Stiller in Zoolander?



Kaden has grown-up to be handsome boy if I must say so. Since this shoot (which by the way was done in the kitchen) Kaden has grown a mustache, talks with a deep voice, and towers over my 5'5" frame. Are you kidding me? This is absolute foreshadowing. He is still my darling 7-year old muffin, who I still attempt to carry to his room at night when he falls asleep on the couch, and nearly pull my back-out. Whew! That was a mouth full (or is it handful because I had to type it). Take a look at Kaden now:



Surfer by day. Stud by night. Holla!

Obviously someone had to help me create this wonderful offspring. That would be Ian. Kaden's Dad. My other love. The 'one'. My future husband. And of course, my baby's daddy (you know you were waiting for this one). We've been together since high school. Ups, downs, break-ups, make-ups, proms, sporting events, movies, mall, Ian and I have done it all. Here is my lovely Ian:


Check out his HALO.
Sorry, he's taken!

Now that I have introduced you to my family, let me tell you just a little more about me. I love to shop. It should come as no surprise because most women are wired with the 'shopping' gene. I like to find bargains more than anything. You will never catch me forking over high dollars for clothing. I just haven't crossed that bridge yet. And when I do, someone kindly pull me back. Thank you in advance. I also like karaoke. I love dancing. I am a huge Beyonce fan. My 3 cousins and I try to have dinner and a movie once a month. I am an only-child. I am also a Mommy's girl. My favorite colors are black, kelly green, and turquoise. I am a reality-tv junkie. I also have way too many accessories. I'm also done talking about myself, so I will leave you with these pictures of me:

I am so excited to meet new people in the blogging world. I have only been blogging for 2 months and I have learned so much. The friendships I have created are amazing. It is true, women do stick together. And I plan on 'sticking around' for years to come.

Since everyone is in PARTY MODE over at 5 minutes for Mom, I thought I would keep the same spirit going. I am HOSTING a GIVEAWAY. This one is for the man in your life. Sometimes we are so busy winning items for the kids, we forget to think about 'the MAN'. So, I am giving away:

A PAIR OF CONAIR® FOOT VIBES MASSAGING SLIPPERS FOR MEN

About the CONAIR® slippers:
  • Soothing relief for Tired Feet at the push of a button
  • On/Off Push Button on Side of Slipper
  • Extremely Comfortable Faux Plush Lined Slippers
  • One Size Fits All
  • Plush lining
  • Flexible sole
I am also giving away a $10 Starbucks Gift Card.

You need lots of enery to enter all these great giveaways for the Ultimate Blog Party 2009.

  69. Your family is gorgeous!!! Truly gorgeous.
    I'm still just blog hopping through the Ultimate Blog Party link list. I didn't want to miss out on any blogs... but I just ran out of party time. So... I'm still working my way down the list... even though the party is technically over.
    Stop in on my blog if you've got a minute! Or... if you're still up for a party post... you could stop by my party anytime!
