1. where were you raised and what was your favorite thing about it?
I grew up in New Brunswick Canada. I still live in the same city, have never moved. The best part about living where I live is we get all four seasons and they are totally different from one another. In summer it can get extremely hot, in fall we get the changing of the leaves, winter we get cold and alot of snow and spring we get showers and flowers

2. what is your favorite type of music/artists/bands etc?
I love most music. Right now I'm totally into Christmas music!! Can't get enough of that, I love Christmas

3. what is one of your life's passions?
Reading. I think it is such an important thing and I upsets me that there are actually people out there that can't read. I used to tutor adults to teach them to read (I'll get back into that after my children are grown) and I taught my dd to read when she was 4 just before school because I was terrified she would not "get it" when she was there

4. what do you like to sing in the shower?
Hmm...not much

5. do you have pets, names/kinds?
We have fish, I can't even tell you their names the kids named them! We used to have two cats but my ds has asthma so we gave them away 2 years ago.

6. if money weren't an issue, what would you spend your life doing?
Raising my kids, reading, relaxing and spending time with hubby

7. if you had to choose to lose one of the five senses, which would it be and why?
Tough question. I guess smell.

8. what is your favorite thing about being pregnant?
Feeling the baby move

9. what is your least favorite thing about being pregnant?
Being tired.

10. are you feeling the baby move yet?
Yes!! I love it

Oh, a questionaire! How did I miss this thread before? Here ya go:

1. where were you raised and what was your favorite thing about it?
Bay Area, CA. I love the diversity of the people, access to diff. cultures, theatre, and the weather is pretty awesome too.

2. what is your favorite type of music/artists/bands etc?
Well, as a child of the 80's I think I'll forever be stuck there musically. Duran Duran has been and will always be my favorite band. I still plan to marry Nick Rhodes when I grow up. Other than that, I really love Frente! although they don't exist anymore, and tend to like folky-girl-fronted bands and things that are very singable-to.

3. what is one of your life's passions?
Childbirth hands down.

4. what do you like to sing in the shower?
I pretty much never sing in the shower.

5. do you have pets, names/kinds?
Yep, 2 cats - Nigel & Atlanta Bean (10 points if you can tell me the Duran Duran connection there)

6. if money weren't an issue, what would you spend your life doing?
Hmm, I'm sure I'd be doing something to try to change the birth culture in America. I'm also interested in animal rights so something there as well. However, on the more selfish side I'd really like to travel a lot and see the world.

7. if you had to choose to lose one of the five senses, which would it be and why?
Taste maybe? Perhaps then I'd be better about eating my veggies.

8. what is your favorite thing about being pregnant?
How amazing my body is - not feeling bad about my size.

9. what is your least favorite thing about being pregnant?
Fatigue/morning sickness

10. are you feeling the baby move yet?
Oh yeah!
