Wow....I really didn't expect this! It's amazing what you will find out at 5:30 in the morning while dealing with insomnia!<br><br>
OKay...<br><br>
What did you do before having children?<br>
- I was in college for 6 years getting my nursing degree (I took my time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ). DH and I started talking about children around the time graduation approached. Well....we ended up delivering my beautiful DD 9 months after I graduated!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><br>
Favorite book?<br>
- You are realy going to think this is crazy but I have read "1984" by George Orwell 4 or 5 times. I am facinated by books that try to 'predict' the future. As a child/teenager, I read all of the Black Beauty series (I do mean ALL) because I was determined to have a horse one day!<br><br><br>
Name your three favorite websites to visit?<br>
- I am on MDC everyday.....I check my myspace out a couple of times a day....and I read the news updates via my homepage (comcast) frequently. Wow, I really don't have much a life huh?<br><br><br>
Favorite thing to eat?<br>
- During this pregnancy I have been killing some Honey Bunches of oats cereal. Pre-pregnancy I couldn't eat enough grilled chicken salads.<br><br><br>
What is your favorite purchase for this baby so far?<br>
- If I could figure out the darn thing I am sure it would be the sling! I didn't have one with DD and I am soooo excited to have one for the baby (and DD if she would cooperate)!<br><br><br>
Do you Cloth Diaper? If so tell us your diapering system?<br>
- No....I contribute to the landfills of America. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I was willing to try but DH was totally not on board....I should be more pro-active and cloth diaper while on maternity leave. If anyone can suggest a simple diaper I am up for tyring my hand at it!<br><br><br>
Do you have a photo you can post?<br>
- Ahhh, wanna put a face to the name huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><a href="http://b6.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/01423/68/09/1423479086_m.jpg" target="_blank">http://b6.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/0...23479086_m.jpg</a><br>
This is DH and I at a family wedding a couple of years ago. I really don't have any recent pics of myself....how sad! (I am sure I have a few, but this is what you get at this time of the morning!)

How did you meet your DH?<br>
- We our freshman year in college. We had 2 classes together the first semester and 2 our second.....and so it went!<br><br>
What were your first impressions of him?<br>
- Honestly, my first thought was "A guy like that would never go for me!" I thought he was attractive and strange. He didn't talk much and would bolt our the door after class....walk straight to his car and leave. It took a while to get him to slow down and talk to me!<br><br>
Did you have any instincts that you were going to marry him before he/you proposed?<br>
- I was dating someone else when we met, but we became friends fast. He made me second guess the relationship I was in (thank goodness!). He actually bought my engagement ring 6-7 months before my relationship with the other man was over! He later told me he 'just knew' we would get married one day.<br><br>
Is there a motto/philosophical saying that you live by?<br>
- I can't pin point one phrase or such. Since DD was born I live everyday trying to remember everything we do. I don't pay much attention to what others say to me or think of me....if you like me great, if not fine! (of course I do have my off days!)<br><br>
If you could have a super hero power what would it be and why?<br>
- I often think I would like to read minds, but that would backfire rather quickly! Invisibility would be cool so I could keep an eye on the kids without being detected!<br><br>
Do you have any pets?<br>
- I have two dogs and two cats....plus numerous stray cats that we feed. We used to have 4 ferrets. When DD came into our lives they weren't getting the attenton they needed so we found a great home for them so they are part of a group of 15 now!<br><br>
Do you watch reality TV? If so what's your favorite and why?<br>
- I will occasionally filp through something but not really watch much of it.<br><br>
Best CD you've heard in the last 3 years?<br>
- I LOVE Green Day so it would have to be "American Idiot." Actually, I took DD to their concert when she was a 12 week fetus!<br><br>
Vanilla or Chocolate?<br>
- Chocolate all the way!
