1. What's your due date? May 2nd (Was April 24th but they changed it after the u/s...)

2. How old are you? 31

3. Where do you live? Arizona in a 'burb' of Phoenix

4. What is/are your favorite movie(s)? Steel Magnolias, Ever After, A Few Good Men and 50 First Dates are my FAVS, but I like comedy and romantic comedy mostly...

5. How many children do you have/do you want to have? This baby is #2. We WANTED to have 3 or 4... But after it took us 3 years to get preggy with DD and over 2 years for this one... And due to the fact that I get SO VERY SICK while pregnant, this just may be it!

6. What is/are your favorite book(s) or author(s)? OH MY! I am such a HUGE reader! I dunno if I can answer this one! Ha ha My favorite book is Gone with the Wind. But as for authors or other books, I read just about anything but trashy romance and sci/fi! LOL

7. What are your favorite lullabies/ what will you sing to your baby? I can't carry a tune in a bucket, but my DD doesn't seem to mind! She asks me all the time to sing to her! LOL I made up a lullaby just for her and I plan on doing the same for this baby. Other than that, my favorite songs to sing to DD are the Cinderella song (A Dream Is A Wish - Will change if this is a BOY! ), You Are My Sunshine, Baby Mine (from Dumbo) and Brahm's Lullaby.

8. What are your favorite books for babies/children? Dr. Seuss, Max Lucado's books, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Berestein (sp?) Bears, Arthur, and DD's favorites - CURIOUS GEORGE!

9. What do you do for a living/what do you wish you did? I have always wanted to be and AM a SAHM and I LOVE it! Wouldn't change it FOR THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. What kind of music do you like? Don't like rap REALLY heavy metal. Otherwise, I pretty much listen to anything. It really depends on my mood. (I am currently listening to Celine Dion's 'Miracle" - which if you haven't heard this song GO LISTEN TO IT SOMEWHERE!! Although watch out! Being hormonal... )

11. What is your favorite food? (pregnant and non-pregnant) Pretty much anything Italian, orange chicken from Panda Express, and salads with a GOOD Italian dressing! (Non of these have changed in pregnancy, either! )

12. What is your favorite quote? Oh this is a tough one for me! There are SO many that I love! I guess my top two are "Dancing is like dreaming with your feet" and "The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your kneees and the floor"

13. What is your favorite thing about yourself? My 'craftiness' - meaning the craft projects I do! Not that I am 'evil' or anything! :

14. What is your favorite beauty secret? Rubbing lemons on your face before you go to bed at night can help get rid of acne!! (And I have heard that it can help tighten the skin, but I don't know about that one! LOL)

15. What are your hobbies? Reading, scrapbooking, cross-stitch and embroidery, going to the zoo with my DD (We are animal lovers!!!!), and just about any craft project!

16. What is your favorite form of exercise? I really HATE to exercise! But I guess walking is about it... Although I can't do it now without MAJOR pain within an hour and up to the next couple of days after!!

17. What is your ideal birth story for this baby? Labor at home for as long as I can, then off to teh hospital for a quick easy delivery with no tearing and a short time of pushing! (Oh! And to have my DH there and not across town in class! LOL)

18. If you were designing your dream nursery right now, what would you do? Hmmm. Not sure! Since we do't know what we are having, I think it would change a lot... If it's a boy, a sports theme for sure since we are HUGE sports people. If it's a girl, then something with butterflies and soft pastels. (Also, we live with my in-laws, so we can't really DO a nursery! No room, first of all - babe just has a 'corner' of our room, second of all, in-laws won't let us paint! And I can't tell you how sick of PLAIN WHITE WALLS I am! )

19. What kinds of pets do you have? A Golden Retriever, Teddy, a Betta, Maui, and a 20 year old cat, Shadow. (And I guess kind of a second Golden, Buddy. He's my FIL's dog but since we live here... )

20. What is one random fact about you that no one could guess by looking at you? Good grief! I have NO idea! Probably that I am 31. Most people think I am a lot younger...

1. What's your due date? April 16th, but since my DD was 5 wks early, I can't imagine going that long!

2. How old are you? 30. Still getting used to not being in my 20's.

3. Where do you live? Just outside Portland, OR

4. What is/are your favorite movie(s)? Anything that makes me cry, happy or sad, or think about life. I like independent and foreign films.

5. How many children do you have/do you want to have? I'm preggo with girl #2 and then we are done.

6. What is/are your favorite book(s) or author(s)? I go in spurts where I read a ton, or else I read nothing. I guess my book tastes are similar to my movie tastes. I'm not into chic lit or fluffy stuff, but I will read it now and then. I like stuff with a little fantasy in a realistic way. Murikami is good. I also always adore good craft books with knitting/sewing ideas. Japanese craft books are amazing. I also love how-to books for building stuff, remodeling, landscaping, anything like that.

7. What are your favorite lullabies/ what will you sing to your baby? Stuff we make up, or whatever music I'm into at the moment. I like to sing Elliott Smith, Built to Spill, Simon and Garfunkle, or you are my sunshine

8. What are your favorite books for babies/children? I Love You Stinkyface, Wocket in my Pocket, Sandra Boynton books, Harold and the Purple Crayon, we always get new stuff from the library too.

9. What do you do for a living/what do you wish you did? I'm a SAHM now and wouldn't trade it. I would like to start working from home selling kids clothes, purses, and other stuff I sew. Everytime I give somebody a gift I've made, they say I should sell stuff, and I do want to when I have time. Pre-baby days, I was a behavioral therapist for kids with autism and before that a preschool teacher/family advocate with head start, and a street outreach worker for homeless youth.

10. What kind of music do you like? I like funky folk music, indie rock, lots of stuff. I don't like rap very much or country, or top 40 unless it's from the 80's.

11. What is your favorite food? (pregnant and non-pregnant) Pregnant: soup, salad, fruit and dessert. Non pregnant: the same plus Thai, any good asian food, sushi, rich creamy fatty stuff, cheesecake, lemon anything.

12. What is your favorite quote? Hmmm...I don't know. "creating is the greatest proof of being alive" from a fortune cookie and Discontent is the first step of progress in a man or nation. Something like that.

13. What is your favorite thing about yourself? My creative skills, and my integrity.

14. What is your favorite beauty secret? Pregnancy actually! I usually am very acne prone unless I take 5 zillion different vitamin supplements, but the last trimester of pregnancy, and the whole first year of nursing seem to cure my skin Oh, and a good concealer is very necessary to cover my dark circles that won't go away even if I sleep for two days.

15. What are your hobbies? Sewing, knitting, making jewelry, anything related to fiber arts. I'm trying to scrapbook, but I really don't get that high from it. I used to have a darkroom and was super into photography, but now I just pretty much take digital photos of my daughter.

16. What is your favorite form of exercise? Swimming and biking. I haven't really done either very much since becoming a mom.

17. What is your ideal birth story for this baby? Ideally? I'd wake up with a little bit of cramping, go to the bathroom to pee, and the baby would slide right out with no tearing. But realistically, I'd like to have a fairly short labor, no complications, no tearing/episiotomy, and not too much pushing needed, or at least nobody screaming at me to pushpushpush. With my last labor, I pretty much had my ideal birth...no drugs, no problems, except I had an episiotomy and people yelling at me to push like crazy right at the end.

18. If you were designing your dream nursery right now, what would you do? We have the crib sidecarred, and I think nurseries are kind of a waste, so I would like to add on to our house and have a bigger bedroom for the girls to share once the baby is older, and have a seperate sewing room so I don't have to share DH's office.

19. What kinds of pets do you have? 2 cats. One big fat shiny black beautiful social girl named Luna, and one squirrely owl faced little fluffy tabby named Placebo.

20. What is one random fact about you that no one could guess by looking at you? I like to put stuff together. Most people think I'm younger than I am, and most people don't think I look like I could have this baby anyday.

I loathe plain white walls, and have had to live with them all of my life... Honestly, the very first thing that I will want to buy when I finally get a house is *paint*.
