7 modernmami Facts

l’ve been tagged twice this week!

Chris Marsden (@cruciformity) of ChrisMarsden.com and Melissa (@WebBetty) of The Web-Betty Blog have both tagged me to tell you 7 things about me.

It’s actually the same meme I did back in April.

But, let’s give it another go-round and see if I can come up with 7 new things to tell you about.

  1. I’m actually pretty short – only 5’1″.
  2. I have an Industrial & Systems Engineering degree.
  3. But, I currently work in e-learning and have taken a keen interest in it.
  4. I used to dance to commercials when I was little. (In Puerto Rico, commercials have actual songs in the background, not just jingles and such. Well they did back when, at least. Don’t know if they still do.)
  5. I still love to dance and miss going out clubbing. Not for the club scene, but just for the dancing.
  6. I never had an Easy Bake Oven as a girl, even though I wanted one. I’ve contemplated buying one for myself. I mean, for my daughter. When she gets old enough.
  7. I cook good. So I’ve been told by friends and family. And the husband.

Now I get to tag 7 bloggers so I/we can learn more about them.

To quote Chris:

Check out their sites. Follow them on Twitter. And if you want, consider yourself tagged as well, follow the rules below, and leave a comment here with your blog address and twitter address. And don’t forget to follow me on twitter too [@modernmami]!


  • Link to the original tagger(s), and list these rules on my blog.
  • Share 7 facts about myself in the post – some random, some weird.
  • Tag 7 people at the end of my post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

Do you feel like you know me a little bit better? How about you share some information about yourself?

Leave a fact about yourself and/or a link to your post in the comments so we can all learn more about each other!

Like what you see? Share with friends!

I never had an Easy Bake Oven either! I was more into G.I. Joe! 😉

Thanks for playing. It was great to meet you at the Tweetup, and now I know more about you. I too wish I had an easy bake oven when I was little (although since they all came in pink and purple, my mom and grandma just got me cooking “real” food at an early age).

@kompostela: It was fun to share.

@Web-Betty: I used to make my Barbies kiss my brother’s GI Joes. LOL

@Chris: As soon as I could reach the back burner, my mom started teaching me how to cook.

Thanks for the tag Melanie. I finally did my post this morning and the part that took the longest for me was finding 7 other people to tag. I need to build up my network.

You’ll get there Phil. 😉
