    a) What's your favorite thing about the new bump? What's your least?  The Love it button and  least favorite just about everything else!

    b) Would you rather - be famous for being able to sing underwater - or - never ever need to wear a bra again?  Never ever need to wear a bra again (I know I would drown trying to perfect my singing under water talent)

Do you call or text her when she should be done from the audition or do you wait to hear from her?  I honestly don't know how to answer this!  I I guess my advice would be to make sure she doesn't have a runny trunk and I'm impatient so I'd have to call!

    f) Pizza or pasta? Popsicle or ice cream cone? Pancakes or waffles? Flowers or candy?
    Pizza, (although I love pasta too) ice cream cone, pancakes & flowers!

    a) What's your favorite thing about the new bump? What's your least?  Like- Love it button and font options (although this may have been an option before) Dislike- All of the white, it's blinding!  AND I cannot for the life of me navigate board to board without hitting my bookmarks.

    b) Would you rather - be famous for being able to sing underwater - or - never ever need to wear a bra again?  No bra please!  Hate them!  I wish I didn't look like I had a uniboob in a sports bra because I'd never be outta one.


    c) What fashion/beauty trend or item are you into, or want to try lately?  I'd like to get laser hair removal and never ever ever have to shave/wax any of my parts ever again, this isn't fun pregnant.

    d) What's your favorite music lyric right now?  I'm still on Darius' Wagon Wheel

    e) An elephant, who believes she is an exciting, beautiful animal, wants to audition for a zoo themed high-fashion photoshoot. The shoot features some 3rd tier semi-famous human models but she'd be the only pachyderm if she gets the part. She has her headshots and she's ready to go, what kind of advice do you give her? Do you call or text her when she should be done from the audition or do you wait to hear from her? Hmm...I'd likely text before something motivating.  (did I answer that right? ;) )

    f) Pizza or pasta? Popsicle or ice cream cone? Pancakes or waffles? Flowers or candy? Honestly I'd take them all!  Oink!

    Me- 32, DH- 32- TTC for 4 Years

    ) What's your favorite thing about the new bump? What's your least? I like the love it button and sort of like the new replies flag, not a fan of the white or the formatting of signatures.

    b) Would you rather - be famous for being able to sing underwater - or - never ever need to wear a bra again? I think I'd vote bra, although I love singing and swimming.

    c) What fashion/beauty trend or item are you into, or want to try lately? I'm a sucker for that pinky/flame orange color that's been popular for a year. I have pants, a skirt, shirts, a scarf and shoes all in that color.

    d) What's your favorite music lyric right now? Phosphorescent "Then I saw love disfigure me, Into something I am not recognizing" - it's how I feel about my pregnancy, in a good way.

    e) An elephant, who believes she is an exciting, beautiful animal, wants to audition for a zoo themed high-fashion photoshoot. The shoot features some 3rd tier semi-famous human models but she'd be the only pachyderm if she gets the part. She has her headshots and she's ready to go, what kind of advice do you give her? Do you call or text her when she should be done from the audition or do you wait to hear from her? I would send her a cheering on text the morning of, tell her to be her awesome self and remind her that niceness goes a really long way, so write a thank you note afterwards regardless of if she lands the gig. You never know who might think of her next time as a first choice. Afterwards I'd let her call me, but I might text her a prompt if I was feeling impatient.

    f) Pizza or pasta? Popsicle or ice cream cone? Pancakes or waffles? Flowers or candy? Pasta, ice cream cone, waffles and flowers.

    a) I love how the post listing page looks and how you can see which posts you have read and if there are new responses.  I don't like how our replies blur into our siggies.  I tried to change my siggy so that it is different enough, but a lot of people haven't or are having issues

    b) never have to wear a bra HANDS DOWN!  I used to be a cute b cup and could rock the braless.  Babies and breastfeeding have changed me so much that even around the house I need a bra most of the time.  

    c) Chevron and strips!  Loving them!  

    d) boom boom boom boom, how how how how.  DS walks around the house saying it and its precious!

    e) How do you come up with this stuff?  I don't even know how to respond!  LOL!

    a) What's your favorite thing about the new bump? The love it button, the notifications and how easy it is to add a picture What's your least? The white background and how hard it is to get to the PAIF board - oh and how it screwed up my siggy and I had to fix it. 

    b) Would you rather - be famous for being able to sing underwater - or - never ever need to wear a bra again? Def never ever need to wear a bra again - GLORIOUS!

    c) What fashion/beauty trend or item are you into, or want to try lately? Hmm, I'm so far behind on things like this, I have NO idea. I don't even know what's popular right now, I'm so lame. 

    d) What's your favorite music lyric right now? Ooh good one, and I'm drawing a blank. I'm having a pregnancy brain type of day. 

    e) An elephant, who believes she is an exciting, beautiful animal, wants to audition for a zoo themed high-fashion photoshoot. The shoot features some 3rd tier semi-famous human models but she'd be the only pachyderm if she gets the part. She has her headshots and she's ready to go, what kind of advice do you give her? Do you call or text her when she should be done from the audition or do you wait to hear from her? WHAT?!?! LOL! Ummm, I'd tell her to go for it and work it like she owns the place! And I'd want her to call, but I'd text a good luck right before the audition

    f) Pizza or pasta? Pizza Popsicle or ice cream cone? Ice cream cone all the way Pancakes or waffles? Waffles  Flowers or candy? Flowers

    a) What's your favorite thing about the new bump? What's your least?

    Favorite: My formatting doesn't get messed up in the mobile view. I can actually use things like parenthesis!

    Least favorite: The posts not being in order of most recently added, but instead in order of recent comments. This messes with my organization!



    b) Would you rather - be famous for being able to sing underwater - or - never ever need to wear a bra again?

    Never wear a bra again, hands down.



    c) What fashion/beauty trend or item are you into, or want to try lately?

    I never got into the boots/leggings thing due to needing a professional wardrobe practically all the time. now that I am not working anymore and probably won't for awhile I really want to get a pair of brown leather boots, a bunch of leggings, and some cute short dresses!




    d) What's your favorite music lyric right now?

    The theme song to "Skyfall"





    e) An elephant, who believes she is an exciting, beautiful animal, wants to audition for a zoo themed high-fashion photoshoot. The shoot features some 3rd tier semi-famous human models but she'd be the only pachyderm if she gets the part. She has her headshots and she's ready to go, what kind of advice do you give her? Do you call or text her when she should be done from the audition or do you wait to hear from her?

    I would text her before the audition with something simple like "good luck today, I'll be thinking if you!" And then wait for her to get back to me.




    f) Pizza or pasta? Popsicle or ice cream cone? Pancakes or waffles? Flowers or candy?

    Pizza, ice cream cone, waffles...no pancakes...I can't decide I love both too much! Flowers...unless the candy is black licorice.
