Get to know you? (non-clicky poll)

We have added several new faces since the beginning of our journeys (way back in March!?!) 
 
So let's do a quick get to know you poll! Answer any (or all) of the questions below!
 
(1) What's your career?
(2) How old are you and DH/SO?
(3) What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
(4) If you were "trying", how long did it take you to conceive this baby?  
"So I will help you read those books if you will soothe my worried looks, and we will put the lonesome on the shelf."

Re: Get to know you? (non-clicky poll)

  • career: nanny which is awesome because I can take the baby with me to work :)

    age:  DH and I are both 24.  I'll be 25 December 14th, DH turns 25 in February.

    ice cream:  ben and jerry's chunky monkey. followed by cherry garcia, half baked, americone dream, and plain old rocky road or moose tracks.  oh or a M&M blizzard, McFlurry, or Frosty.  haha.  not too picky when it comes to ice cream, actually...

    trying: we "tried" for almost a year (10 cycles I believe) but I wasn't charting or anything.  I went off BC and expected it to happen right away and it didn't and it didn't and it didn't finally we stopped trying and it just sorta did.

However, DH and I were living in Germany for the past 5 years, and when we moved back to the States I was 2 months pregnant. We both agreed I would be a SAHM, so I decided not to look for a job once we got to MA. 

    (2) Both of us are 28, and I will be 29 when LO is born. 

    (3) My favorite ice cream flavor is Blue Moon-odd, I know! I tried it for the first time when I was three and I fell in love with it! 

    (4) It took exactly 4 days. DH and I decided on March 31st we would start trying (I had been charting for 4 months) and I got pregnant on April 4th. Crazy!

  • Fun!

    3) currently it's the Ben & Jerry's cheesecake one...can't think of the name at the moment

    To be honest, I have never actually looked into it... I personally don't think its bad because I can't imagine that there would be raw egg in ice cream that people can eat all the time.  I have been meaning to google it for while now....
