If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Anywhere in the country you live in?

If you could live anywhere with nothing to get in your way, ie cost, where would it be?

How do you think having this baby will change you?

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Wife to DH(10/02) Mom to DD1('03), angel1.gif('04), DS1('05), DD2('07), DS2('08), DD3('10) angel1.gif(08/11), angel1.gif (09/11). We follow Jesus, praying.gif, quiverful, homeschool.gif,cd.gif ,winner.jpg,familybed1.gif,femalesling.GIF, and we are a food allergic family.

Real name? Teneal

Age? 31

Where are you from, where do you live now? TN, live in NC

Due date? May 5th

How long were you ttc? We weren't really TTC this time, I was/am still nursing and didn't really expect it to happen so quickly. It took 21 cycles and several other interventions to get B here, so while we weren't preventing, we kinda didn't think we'd be here so soon.

Gender preference, if you have one & will you find out? I kind of want a boy, we have 2 of each and I don't want to have to run out and buy more girl stuff...LOL...not sure if we're going to find out or not.

Family - husbands, wives, partners, kids, pets and more? DH Kevin, 2 DD's 10 & 8, 2 DS's 6 & 15 months.

Occupation? Sales

Hobbies and other activities? I love fishing and golf, and DH even made a seat for B so we could take him along for golf.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Anywhere in the country you live in? I love tropical places, and those are the ones I prefer to visit, and or live in. Islands, any where really.

If you could live anywhere with nothing to get in your way, ie cost, where would it be? We might live in Fiji, not sure though, that one requires some thought.

How do you think having this baby will change you? I am actually a little scared, going from 4 to 5 shouldn't really be a big change, but it'll just take one day at a time. I'm hoping to be a great SAHM someday soon.

Where do you see yourself in ten years? Definitely a SAHM, I want to go to school and volunteer for things, and coach cheer-leading and baseball and eat lunch with them at school, the moms that do this seem so happy.

Where have you traveled to? Hawaii is the longest distance I've traveled, but we've lived and visited in 17 different states.

What do you like best about North Carolina? I like that my mom lives here and I can get up in the morning and decide to drive to the beach, it is over an hour to get to the closest beach, but we love that about it.

Favorite books? I really don't have a favorite book, I hate reading. I know it's terrible, but that's me. I wish I enjoyed reading though, my mom always has great suggestions, and Kev reads and tells me about them. Other than that I read kids books to K & B ALL the time.

LOL, my favorite coffee mug is really big and PINK of all colors (I'm not really a pink kinda gal) and it's supposed to be Patrick from SpongeBob Square Pants, so it has really big eyes and mouth that are protruding from the cup. I think we got it at King Dominion in OH in 2007.

Are you planning to dress up for Halloween? If so, what will you be?

favorite color? purple most days, some shades of blue and green

first pet peeve to come to mind? Well, right now it's happening so I'm going to use this one. oldest DD, complains 24/7 about something and she smarts off to me and rolls her eyes no matter what is going on.

any baby names picked out? We did this same thing with B, didn't pick any boys names at all and discovered he was a boy and scratched all the girl names picked and argued over boys names. So, I can't share right now, but we have several beautiful vintage girl names picked and not one boy name. This time this is how were doing the name though, I make a list of 10-15 names I like and DH has to pick from that list no matter what. I have several favorites and it'll at least be one of those

where did you and dh meet? Ohio State, late 1999, he was in school and I was, erm visiting friends that went to school there. We started dating in early 2000 and had H roughly 9 months later. LOL we did eventually get married, but it wasn't until 2004 and we already had 2 kiddies together. LOL

I never dress up either so don't feel bad.

Do you have any cool, eccentric family members that your family adores?

What is the view outside your window right now?

Sorry about the totally random questions popping out of me. I always tend to type first and think later.

Do you have any cool, eccentric family members that your family adores? i think my mom is the cool one everybody adores, shes got such great taste, and style (but not trendy ykwim?) and well, she's my favorite, but she's 2 hours away and with swine flu and *things* going on we don't get to visit her very often. We did spend a lot of time with her over the summer though. We took my parents on both our big family vacations. One to Oak Island for 4th of July vacation, and one to Hilton Head for a week in August.

What is the view outside your window right now? My deck, grill, nice big trees behind the deck, with the big bright sun peering through like a shimmery smile, almost blinding if you stare too long. and DH built my deck with his bare hands. Ok, i'm done.

Thanks for asking so many questions mamas!!!

What is your favorite character trait in yourself?

Do you have a song that makes you turn up the radio really loud b/c you love it so much?

Walking in the light with DH, DD (11/08), DS (4/10) , four dogs, and one insouciant cat.

did you have a large family growing up? nope, i'm an only child, which is why we have such a big family!!

did you always know you wanted to have a large family yourself? no, i didn't. My first marriage was terrible and I thought my oldest DD would be it, then i met DH and everything changed. I learned what happiness really was.

fav food? Right now, not much. Anything spicy normally, I'm gluten free so sometimes that tricky.

What is your favorite character trait in yourself? I'm passionate about things I believe in.

Do you have a song that makes you turn up the radio really loud b/c you love it so much? Rascal Flatts anything gets turned up loud.

Sorry, I've been away, here goes...
