1. What's your due date?

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.
