Tell Me Something

Introductions~~Originally Posted Oct 12, 2008

Being new to the blogging community is almost like being a High School transfer. All of the kids have known each other for a while and have there own cliques. I am currently the new kid that everyone is trying to get a feel for. I started this blog as a stress reliever and to record silly things my baby does.

I enjoy reading other blogs, especially other mommy blogs and reading funny stories and getting new tips and ideas. So I thought that maybe if everyone got to know me a little better they would leave me a few comments now and then and if I'm really lucky I could get a few followers. You? Come on, come on. (See I've been forced to beg)

OK, so here's a few thing you should know about me.

1. My name is Keyona and I turned 27 last week
2. I was born and raised (for the most part) in Maryland
3. I have been married for 5 years
4. I have a daughter who is about to turn 5 on the 29th
5. I have a step-daughter who will be 7 in December
6. I was adopted by my stepdad when I was 14
7. I have 4 brothers and I am the only girl
8. I have been in the Air Force for 9 years
9. I deployed to Iraq in 2003 and don't really talk about it
10. I am a TV junkie and don't care to help it
11. I love running and am currently training to run my first half-marathon
12. I have a great sense of humor (at least I think so)
13. I don't have many friends but I think it's because I haven't met the right ones yet
14. I love taking photos and hope to take photography classes one day
15. I love this blogging thing and hope to get better and meet new people!


Obviously there are a few changes. 

I am now a brand new 29 year old.

Lael will be 7 in 2 weeks and Deja will be 9 in December.  How did that happen?

I've been in the Air Force for 11 years now.

I haven't been running to train but I am running again to lose my baby-baby weight.  Hee hee.

I took a bit of time off but am back into blogging again.

So, now tell me some things. Introduce yourself or if I "know" you already tell me something I don't know.



  1. It's weird how I found you and your blog. It was through a site that made free backgrounds, remember? I don't typically fall in love with a blogger and add them to my reader after finding them that way, but I felt like a kindred spirit to you because we have so much in common - yet we are so different. Same age, recent moms, working with hubby at home (and now I know you are interested in photography too, but have never gotten around to taking a class just like me). But living on the opposite side of the United States, very different careers, and then there's the fact that I'm from an ultra-religious Mormon culture (which might be a little obscure to you), and the difference in race. I kid you not, there were about two black kids out of 600 that graduated in my HS class in Thornton, Colorado. I love reading your blog because of those differences. There you are on the opposite side of the United States working at the pentagon every day, and you are doing a lot of the same things that I do everyday - loving your kids, having spats with your husband, thinking about life and relationships. I relate to the things you write about, and you ARE funny.

    Here's to a great blogging friend and 2 years gone, Keyona! Many more to come...

  2. Just sayin - your Nike plus girl on the sidebar is lookin a bit bored.

  3. Im so glad that our wonderful friend Carlota introduced us! I love your blog, you are hilarious and I love how you totally keep it real. Did you know we just moved to Hawaii? Its been a rough adjustment in some ways but Im trying to make it work. You might now know it, but I love to sew, cook, and watch project runway. Plus Im a working mom so I feel you pain!! Keep blogging. I will keep reading!

  4. You'll be shocked to hear it, but I love reality TV, too.


Those laughing with me...or at me.
