What's your favorite food? How about beverage? I absolutely LOVE sushi. With lots of wasabi and red chili pepper sauce. I haven't had it as much since I've been pregnant, and I only stick with the cooked stuff, but it's definitely still my favorite. As for drinks - I love my Starbucks! I've even been cheating now that it's holiday season, and they have the Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha. I always get decaf, but I know they aren't the most healthy thing in the world.
Do you have any pets? I had two cats, but we gave them to my mom. One of them was destroying the house with her claws, and DH is allergic. I miss them so much, but it's nice that I can visit them and I know my mom loves them and has given them a great home.
Where is your favorite place to shop? It depends what I'm shopping for. We have a really great outdoor mall here which is where I go for clothes and stuff, and it's really nice to just get out and walk around. When I'm looking at stuff for the house I LOVE Bed Bath and Beyond. Of course, Babies R Us has been a new favorite now.
How ready are you for baby? Do you have a lot left to get? The nursery is almost complete!! I plan to finish it this weekend, and I'll post pics. My mom got our travel system, so we'll have that this week as well. We still need things like the swing, bath tub, etc. My shower isn't until January so I'm trying to wait on buying anything else. She has a closet/dresser full of clothes already!
If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be? On a beach somewhere! I love the beach and it's so gorgeous right now in Florida, it's the perfect time to relax and read a book. You can enjoy the dolphins jumping and a nice breeze!
What's your favorite room in your house? You should post some pics of it! I keep hearing how big and beautiful it is!!
LOL! That must have come from something on Facebook. It's really not that spectacular. Some people act like we live in some sort of palace!
How did you come up with the name Kennedy? What's her middle name? DH and I wanted something different. I was one of about 20 Jennifers when I was in school and I hated it. We also didn't want something weird or difficult to pronounce or spell. Her middle name will be Aleise. I figured if I was going to be creative with spelling anywhere in here name, it should be the middle name.
What's your favorite room in your house? I LOVE my scrapbook room. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years now, and when we moved in the house DH set up the room with a TV and everything. I also love our bonus room. We have the big TV up there, with the leather recliner sofa set, and it's just so nice to relax up there! I actually don't really have any pictures of the house on my laptop, but I'll take some this afternoon and post them! My family has actually been begging me to see them since we moved in and I haven't done it!
Okay - here's pictures of my favorite parts of the house, and a view from the front (just so you can see that we don't live in the palace people make it out to be on FB!) Sorry I can't shrink them down - photobucket is being weird today.
Master Bathroom - I love our tub!
The Kitchen - Even though I hate cooking these days, I just love it! One of these days I'll get back into the cooking and baking thing.
Kennedy's Nursery - So far
The Bonus Room - Not the best pic, but it's hard to get the whole room in one shot.
My scrapbook room!!! I really wish I had more time to use it. I've got to get caught up before Kennedy arrives!
Oh I wish I had my own workroom area!! I have been wanting to get started on Kate's Christmas stocking but I have to do it on our dining room table. I say dining room but honestly it's just part of the kitchen.
I like the name Kennedy. I think it's pretty but also it can be a grown up name.
1. What would Kennedy's name be if she'd been a boy? Cameron Reid or Cole Alexander
2. Have you lived in FL your whole life? No, I grew up in Rochester New York and lived in North Carolina for a few years. DH got transferred to Florida about 9 months after we met. We did the long distance thing for about a year and then I moved down here. That was almost 7 years ago!
3. Have you ever traveled outside the US? If so, where? I've been to Canada, Haiti, The Bahamas, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Barbados, The Cayman Islands, Mexico, and Jamaica.
How did you meet DH? We were both working for the hospital system. He was in HR and I was in Pediatrics. He was doing benefits sign up and I was there, but hated my job, had a broken hand and was super cranky. He kept giving me a hard time about how it happened, etc. As I was leaving, he yelled that maybe someday I'd tell him. About a week later I got an email from him asking how my hand was. He had looked me up on the company directory. We emailed back and forth for awhile before I agreed to go out with him. The funny thing is, before our first actual date, I told my Aunt that I was going to marry him.
How many children would you like to have? We want to have at least 4, but the option for a 5th is open. We want them relatively close together, and I'd like to be done having kids by the time I'm 35.
What is your favorite thing to do, besides scrap booking, in your spare time? I love to read! DH bought me a Kindle for Christmas last year, and I love to go sit out at the beach and read.
Do any of your friends or close family have children, or will you be the first? A lot of my friends do have kids, but most of them don't live locally to us. I would say that 3 of our friends that we are close to in this area have kids. My BIL and SIL have 4 kids, whose ages range from 4 - 13. I'm the only child, so this is the first grandbaby for my parents. My cousins are 8 and 11, so Kennedy will also be the first great grandbaby!
