Are you a cozy up in front of a crackling fire with a hot cocoa while you watch the snow falling outside or a barefoot bathing beauty on a beach with a coconut holding an adult drink with a little umbrella kind of gal?

1. What is your real first name?<br><br>
My first name is Candy.<br><br>
2. What are your current fave names for the new baby?<br><br>
If the baby is a girl, I want to name her Elizabeth. I have no clue what we'll name the lo if it's a boy.<br><br>
3. How did you meet your DH?<br><br>
I met DH at college. I saw him working at our college bookstore and knew immediately that he was the one for me. I got a job there, the rest is history.<br><br>
4. What ws your first date like?<br><br>
Interesting question. I don't really know the answer. What I would consider our first date, he wouldn't because he had a girlfriend. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: We took a week long trip to Yellowstone together, which I consider a date.<br>
5. How did DH propose?<br><br>
A week after Valentine's day, we went to our favorite restaurant. After dinner, he parked in the middle of a field so we could look at the lights of the city. I knew he was going to propose before he actually did. It was very sweet.<br><br>
6. Favorite movie of all-time?<br><br>
This is hard. I love a lot of movies, and I'm going to feel guilty for leaving some out! Fools Rush In is a fave, as is While You Were Sleeping. I love The Sound of Music, Center Stage, Beaches... the list goes on.<br><br>
7. Favorite book?<br><br>
My favorite book of all time is This Heart of Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I dont' think a book has ever touched me so deeply.<br><br>
8. If you drink (outside of pregnancy), what's your poison?<br><br>
I really don't drink, but if I'm feeling daring <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'll have an amaretto sour or strawberry daquiri.

Even though I have an English degree, I have to admit that my passion is contemporary "fluff" writers. I'm deeply ashamed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> So, my three would probably be Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Lori Foster, and...<br><br>

My prego brain isn't working, so I'm going to have to come back and edit when I can think of more musicians and dead people. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Favorite way to unwind: with a book<br><br>
Music: I don't have a particular type. Depends on my mood. But I will admit to loving cheesy 80's love songs.<br><br>
My Hero: My Mom. She had a really rough life, but she tried to keep me sheltered from it. She did the best she could, and I admire her for it.<br><br>
# of children: two. I am d.o.n.e. after this!<br><br>
Time of Year: I love summer. I suffer from SAD, so the summertime is when I really come to life.

Both! If I'm in cold weather, I'd much rather be inside where it's warm, preferably with a book! However the beach is one of my very favorite places. I need to go every once in a while to recharge my batteries and get in touch with myself. It's been years since I've been to the beach, and I desperately need to go back.<br><br>
I've never been a "life of the party" type of girl though. I'm fairly introverted.

Two jobs: Can I count Mom? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Before I decided to go back to being a sahm, I was a manager at Bath & Body Works. It was a fun job.<br>
My very first job was a carhop at an A&W in the small town I grew up in. It was actually a lot of fun.<br><br>
The most adventurous thing I've done would probably be going off to Yellowstone for a week with a guy that I didn't really know that well. Of course, it's also the best thing I've ever done, since he's now my husband. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We stopped along the road to go swimming in a river, slept in the back of a truck, and just generally had a good time. We explored Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, Wyoming (my other favorite place on the planet). It was the most amazing trip. Oh yeah, we had sex too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Favorite thing about pg: The fact that it will end!!! Well, feeling the baby move is pretty cool too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
Least fave: hyperemesis. I've been so stinking sick. Without zofran, I don't know what I would have done.<br><br>
TV: The only shows I watch regularly are Gilmore Girls, Law & Order SVU, and CSI. I try not to get too attached to shows since the powers that be always decide to cancel anything I get attached to (hello, Reunion!!).<br><br>
Pet Peeves: Good lord, too many to list. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I think one of my major ones is incorrect spelling. I'm such a dork.<br><br>
Nothing really odd or exciting with this pg. We find out the sex on the 17th. I have had dreams that I'm having a hermaphrodite. Actually pretty funny. The u/s tech is talking to dh and I and says "well, it's not a boy." We get all excited and say "So it's a girl?" and the tech says, "well, it's not a boy." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> At this point, since I've bought both boy clothes and girl clothes, I'm ok with that.

Sadly, I have nothing recent. And I don't think I'd know how to post it if I did. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My favorite color is pink. It makes me happy.<br><br>
I've lived in Montana since I was 11. We moved around a LOT my first 11 years. I was never in the same school for longer than a year, most times not longer than a couple of months. I liked that Montana was permanent. Plus, it's absolutely gorgeous here. I grew up in eastern Montana, now live in western Montana, and both places are beautiful, though it depends on your definition of beauty. Most people love western MT. It's green, mountainous, and similar to WA and OR. Eastern MT is a lot more barren and desolate, but still wonderful.<br><br>
It took DH a little longer to realize I was the one for him. Like I've said, he had a girlfriend (of 5 years!!) when we were becoming friends. We would hang out, go golfing, etc. He took care of me when I had my wisdom teeth pulled. Finally I ran into them together and decided that the situation sucked. He broke up with her, we started dating and were married a little over a year later.
