    1. Currently, Taylor Swift's Shake it Off and Jessie J.'s Bang Bang.  I fully recognize that I have the musical taste of a 13 year old.  
    2. Loyal, kind, patient
    3. A mechanic drove my kids and I home and then brought our car to us when it was done.  We are a single car family and my DD was 2 months old at the time.  Our car was acting up and it ended up having a ton of things wrong with it and the repairs would take hours.  The mechanic was also a mom and felt bad for me waiting at the garage all day with an infant and toddler.  It was so kind of her.
    4. We bought a gift card to a grocery store for one of DH's co-workers that was having a hard time financially.  DH put it on her desk anonymously.  
    5. Ears pierced
    6. Dr. Pepper - I don't drink alcohol
    7. Books
    8. I want to write a mystery.
    9. Librarian
    10. When I was in labor with DD

  • 1) What is your favorite song?
    This is really hard for me to pick! Some of my favorite bands right now are Spoon and the War on Drugs. Beck's latest album is pretty awesome. And I am obsessed with "The Trailer Song" by Kacey Musgraves.
    2) If your best friend had to describe you in 3 words, what would she say?
    Tidy, fun, loyal.
    3) What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you? 
    My Dad consistently is amazing to me and is always surprising me with generosity. One thing that comes to mind is when he paid off the balance of my student loans as a complete surprise.
    4) What is the nicest thing you have ever done for someone else? 
    I try to always, always keep people's secrets and not gossip. I will always offer to throw a shower or birthday party for people. That kind of stuff. I wish I had one "big" act of generosity to report but I'm currently drawing a blank on that!
    5) Any tattoos or piercings?
    Just one hole in each ear lobe.
    6) If you were to have a social drink, what is your drink of choice?
    Dirty martini. Or an Old Fashioned.
    7) What is the one thing you could not live without? (excluding family and children)
    Good fiction. Reading an amazing book is really restorative for me.
    8) Do you have a bucket list, what is the craziest thing on it?
    I don't have a bucket list but I really ought to make one. I wish I was more adventurous.  
    9) What would your dream job be?
    Artist and volunteer. I am working towards this. 
    10) What was the last thing that made you cry?
    Realizing how fleeting my three year old's innocence and sweetness will be in the grand scheme of life. He wanted to be a ladybug for halloween and the gentle sweetness of it made me cry.

  • 1) What is your favorite song?
    The Cave by Mumford and Sons or Mr. Brightside by The Killers
    2) If your best friend had to describe you in 3 words, what would she say?
    Chill, Funny, Responsible
    3) What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you? 
    My son was born 6 weeks early. Of course, all of the people we had lined up to watch our daughter were either out of town or busy when I went into labor. Our last resort was a 23 year old male co-worker/friend of my husband who had zero to no childcare experience. But, without even a second guess, he rose to the occasion. He bought her breakfast and lunch, played legos with her almost all day, and even unloaded and loaded our dishwasher until my mom was able to relieve him of duty. 
    4) What is the nicest thing you ever done for someone else? 
    The camp I worked at was space themed ;) Each group got to participate in at least two "missions." I had this 9 year old girl in my group who was bound and determined to be a female commander and one of the first women on Mars. She wasn't assigned the Commander position in either mission, so I begged and pleaded for a switch so she could live her dream. She ended up doing a PHENOMENAL job and won a special award at the end of the week because of it.
    5) Any tattoos or piercings?
    My ears. I fear commitment.
    6) If you were to have a social drink, what is your drink of choice?
    Some type of hard cider.
    7) What is the one thing you could not live without? (excluding family and children)
    Chapstick.
    8) Do you have a bucket list, what is the craziest thing on it? 
    Not officially. I would love to live abroad for at least a year though.
    9) What would your dream job be? 
    Make-up artist a la Face Off
    10) What was the last thing that made you cry?
    An episode of The Knick.  One of the doctors accidentally gave his infant daughter meningitis and it was painful to watch the baby and parents suffer. Worst fear realized sort of thing.

    1) What is your favorite song?

    I don't have a single favorite. I have many. But the two that immediate come to mind are contemporary classical pieces by Clint Mansell. "Death is the road to awe" and "Lux Aeterna." The latter was inspiration behind changing my name. Both are very symbolic.

    2) If your best friend had to describe you in 3 words, what would she say?

    Hmm. Aside from my husband, I don't have a best friend, but I have a handful of really good friends. Most would describe me as analytical/objective, introspective and intelligent.

    3) What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you? 

    I've had a lot of people do really great things in terms of support/comfort during hardships. A woman I only knew from a debate group I posted on offered to crochet me a blanket after my first son died. That meant a great deal to me, especially during the early grieving/mourning period.

    4) What is the nicest thing you ever done for someone else?

    I can't think of any particular thing. I make myself available to those in need of support and comfort. I always try to listen with an objective ear, and simply empathize with others.

    5) Any tattoos or piercings?

    Many piercings and 24 tattoos (and counting).

    6) If you were to have a social drink, what is your drink of choice?

    I'm not sure. It depends on my mood. Possibly a mixed drink flavored with chocolate or anything dessert-like.

    7) What is the one thing you could not live without? (excluding family and children)

    Bacon, salmon, avocados, movies, music, video games, dark chocolate, butter, coconut milk, sushi, my favorites in my collection of niche and indie perfume, and a really good lip moisturizer. 

    8) Do you have a bucket list, what is the craziest thing on it?

    I don't have one yet.

    9) What would your dream job be?

    If I could use a magic wand, philosophy or comparative religion professor. 

    10) What was the last thing that made you cry? 

    The series finale of House. DH and I re-watched the entire series over the last few months. 
    G 12.04 | E 11.06 | D 11.08  | H 12.09 | R 11.14 | Expecting #6 2.16.18.

  • 1. Hmmm...."You'll Never Be Alone" by Capital Kings.
    2. Kind, caring, sweet
    3. When I was pregnant with DD, I had a doctor's appointment one day. DH was supposed to be home to watch DS. However, he got a flat tire and so was taking the tire in to be fixed. DS had just fallen asleep for his nap. So I called a gal that lives in my neighborhood that I was just getting to know. She came over and sat in my house until DH got home so that DS could still take his nap and I could go to my appointment.
    4. We watched a friend's DD while she was in labor with their DS until grandma could come. Grandma lived like 5 hours away, so we had DD all day.
    5. Ear pierced
    6. Pepsi, no alcohol here either
    7. No idea
    8. No bucket list
    9. I don't want to sound cliché, but being able to be home with my kids is my "dream job".
    10. When we had DD dedicated in church a month ago. The Sunday we had her dedicated was the same weekend a year ago that we had our mc. As I was standing in church on the dedication Sunday, I was reflecting on where I was emotionally a year ago. I still miss that baby, and am so very thankful for DD.

    1) What is your favorite song?
    The one song that I will notice when it comes on the radio is Boom Clap because I watched Fault in our Stars not too long ago and that movie got to me, so the song still gets to me.  I also will admit to having to resist the urge to dance when I hear Shake it Off.

    2) If your best friend had to describe you in 3 words, what would she say?
    Caring, nerd, guarded

    3) What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
    We moved shortly before I got pregnant with DD.  I didn't know the neighbors well at the time other than waving and saying hi while out walking the dog.  They found out that we didn't have family or friends in the state and that I was pregnant.  The neighborhood got together and threw a small baby shower.  At the end of the shower they gave me a phone number list of all their numbers in case I ever needed anything.  They made us feel like we were an immediate part of their community.  We have since moved again, but I still love those people.

    4. What is the nicest thing you ever done for someone else? 
    I cannot think of anything big off the top of my head.... I send cookies and other treats to the people in my grandma's nursing home.  I was my neighbor's "in case of emergency contact" in grad school. She had a life threatening illness and had no family.....The kids and I have helped neighbors shovel their driveways....

    5) Any tattoos or piercings?
    Just the two holes in my ears

    6) If you were to have a social drink, what is your drink of choice? 
    Strawberry daiquiri

    7) What is the one thing you could not live without? (excluding family and children)
    My phone.  It is the best way to keep in touch with my family and friends since they live so far away. 

    Do you have a bucket list, what is the craziest thing on it?
    To compete on the Amazing Race.  I have zero desire to be on t.v., but I would love to run the race and participate in the challenges. 

    9) What would your dream job be?
    Volunteer with FLAG (farmers legal action group)

    10) What was the last thing that made you cry?
    I got teary eyed during a news story about a little boy and his best friend, his elderly neighbor. They showed them playing and gardening together. The boy moves and you can tell how difficult the move was on both of them.

  • 1. My favorite song is Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House.

    2. My best friend says I am caring, honest and emotional.

    3. The nicest thing anyone has ever done for me was- when I was pregnant last year we had nobody throwing us a baby shower. The women in my online support group felt bad and they all surprised me by ordering something from my registry. I couldn't believe such a wonderful gesture was coming from women who had never even met me in real life.

    4. The nicest thing I've done for someone else was probably taking my best friend to London after her mom died and she was really depressed.

    5. I have two holes in my left ear, three in my right. I have 4 tattoos- wrist, ring finger, back of neck and top of foot.

    6. I like a nice glass of wine.

    7. I can't live without- ....it's a toss up between music and my car.

    8. I do have a bucket list, probably the craziest thing on it (according to some people) is I'd like to see Nessie.

    9. Honestly being a SAHM was always my dream, but if I were to do something else I think it would be fun to design clothes, if I actually knew how to sew LOL. I love the creativity behind it. I'd want to be good enough to only do what I wanted though. :)

    10. The last thing that made me cry was my husband.
    Me:41, DH:41 Positive for MTHFR mutations- one copy C677T, one copy A1298C. One daughter born on Thanksgiving in 2013. Six losses.
