|More About Our Family
|About Us |
We met when Brandon was in the 7th grade and Lakitia was in the 8th grade. We had a home economics class together. Knowing each other from our childhood made it easy for us when we began dating because we knew each other's character.
Lakitia is a do it by the book kind of girl. She is meticulous and does extensive research before she dives into anything. She is the hardest working person I have ever known. While caretaking for our niece and nephews for almost half a year, Lakitia would get up at the crack of dawn, cook breakfast, comb hair, and have three small children off to school all while finishing her MBA, with a 4.0 GPA I might add. Lakitia enjoys watching movies, taking our dogs for walks, and learning anything new.
Brandon is kind, gentle, honest, and puts God first. He is extremely intelligent, logical, and calm. I love his beautiful brown eyes but I knew he was the one for me the first time he prayed for me. He literally got on both knees and prayed for my healing. I often tell people Brandon’s love is my healing. God showed me tremendous favor when he blessed me with my husband. I know Brandon will be attentive, affectionate, patient, and actively engaged as a father. Brandon enjoys working out at the gym, playing basketball, watching sports, and barbecuing.
We are Christians and our faith is a very important part of our lives. We go to church on Sundays and when our schedule permits we go to bible study on Wednesdays. We often read Christian inspired books about keeping a healthy marriage.
|Our Musical Interest|
We enjoy listening to everything from Hip Hop to classical music. We mostly listen to hip hop, R&B, and Gospel.
"Exceptional" by Babyface is what we consider "Our Song". We are kind of corny like that and we love it.
|About Our Home|
We live in Oklahoma in a suburb near an Air Force base in a three-bedroom house. We have a small back yard and patio space that we like to enjoy when the weather permits. We have two wonderful dogs! Buloo is our four-year-old American Bully. He is what they call a pocket bully which means he is small. He is spoiled rotten, loves popcorn and strawberries, and is a big snuggler. He loves kids especially our nieces and nephews. Roxy is our thirteen-year-old dachshund. Roxy is a country girl at heart. We adopted her from Lakitia's grandmother when her grandfather passed away last year. She loves to be wrapped up and tucked into her blanket at bedtime. Her favorite foods are anything that we accidentally spill or drop on the floor.
Brandon's parents live less than a mile away and Lakitia's parents live within 30 minutes. Brandon's father can be found on the golf course before he goes to work in the morning and on Saturday's weather permitting. Brandon's mother helps care for her 99-year-old mother. Lakitia's father is a high school basketball and cross country coach and is pretty busy with that during the season. Otherwise, he can be found on his farm with his cows, horses, and vegetable garden. Her mother often helps with her grandchildren while they do distance learning due to COVID.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in Oklahoma in a suburb near a military base. Most of our family lives 30 minutes or less from us. We were both raised in this area and live near the high school we graduated from. Oklahoma has grown from a sleepy place to a city with farmer markets, live music, and many other things to do. We stay near an Air Force base where Brandon works as an aircraft mechanic. We have a small, diverse neighborhood. We have a mix of young and older individuals in our community with a variety of ethnicities.
We live in a small, safe, and friendly neighborhood. Many of the families around us are military or retired military and we have a close relationship with several of them. Our neighborhood is within walking distance to a park, elementary school, and we are just a five-minute drive from downtown.
