1. How do you like living in the Bronx?

i love living in the bronx! it's too bad the bronx gets such a bad reputation because it's really great. i mean, sure, you won't see me hanging out in the south bronx or anything but we're no where near there! we live in a little gated neighborhood community that is right on the water. it's beautiful. i'm a block from the beach which is really great during the summer. we swim almost every day. this neighborhood was formed back in the '20s - they were little summer bungalows where people from manhattan used to come for vacation! it was known as the irish hamptons Smile during the depression people turned the bungalows into year-round houses and moved in. so here we are today. the houses are TINY but i love them. everyone knows each other and it's basically like mayberry from the andy griffith show. pretty much everyone is a cop or fireman or garbage man...salt of the earth and i love it. of course, it's tough every 9/11 as we lost so many friends and family but we of course will never forget.

you wouldn't even know you were in new york, let alone the bronx...well, except that everyone has pretty strong accents Wink

2. I see you plan disney vacations...what is your favorite ride or attraction at Disneyworld or Disneyland?

i mean, were you trying to give me the most loaded question ever??? lol!!! ah, i love disney. we bought their vacation club last year (their equivalent of a timeshare) and go very often. i haven't been to disneyland but i've been to WDW a billion times! Smile

my favorite ride? i don't even know if i can answer that! well, i could but it would take me a year to do it! haha. my favorite park (today) i would say is epcot. i'd say for now my favorite ride is the land but that is based purely on nostalgia Wink

3. Any pregnancy cravings?

not really any cravings, i'm just really into any and all food. i never had any with my first pregnancy either. basically if someone mentions some type of food i just really want it.

Do you have a favourite Disney character/story?

You're probably pretty well set up from your 1st DS, but is there any new gear you want for this baby?

Are you going to have a birthday party for Thomas?

4. favorite movie? oh man another loaded question. does the star war trilogy count as one movie Wink i can always watch shawshank over and over and over too.

5. i'm not really into cars but i would really like to drive (this is fantasy and not reality, right?) a cute little sports car that is stick shift. my husband doesn't drive stick (annoying!) and i really miss the fun of zooming around. then again, i'd need to live someplace like up in connecticut where the roads are curvy. here they are just pretty straight!

6. my celebrity crush would have to be ben affleck. i've loved him forever. i sort of fell out of love with him for while but, have you seen The Town?? mmmmmmmmmm

and what did i want to be? easy. an astronaut. well, either i wanted to be an astronaut or i wanted to pack bags at pathmark, our local supermarket. still to this day i love bagging my groceries! haha

oh i love mickey mouse! he IS the big cheese, after all! but really i adore the lion king. i think that is my favorite disney movie.

the only thing i'm thinking about as far as gear is a double stroller. i have been really researching this. i think i want the baby jogger citi mini. now, it's not really a jogger but apparently it's a pretty great stroller as far as maneuverability and weight. we'll have to test them out at buy buy baby or one of those places.

oh, and i'll want the newborn insert for the ergo. i didn't start putting thomas in it until he was about 6 months. i love the ergo!

we are having thomas's 2nd bday party at our local beach club's clubhouse. we had it there last year but this year i'm just doing pizza and cake. last year i catered and all that nonsense and it would up costing about a grand which is just not in the budget this year. the theme will be thomas the train. he is obsessed with trains lately!

1. i'm an only child! i never really liked being an only child because i got all of the attention and none of the spoiling. oh well. i wish i had a sibling. let's just say my parents were extremely strict and it would have been nice to have someone on my side, ya know?

my dad, however, is one of TEN children and we all live very close to each other for the most part. i have 24 first cousins just from that side! i am actually the second oldest (the first oldest is only 6 months older though) so it goes from age 31 down to age 5!

2. i would say my favorite season is fall but i feel like we no longer have spring and fall anymore. we only have "hot" and "cold"! i was a huge nerd and LOVED the beginning of the school year. soccer season! halloween! my bday's in oct so i of course loved that growing up.

3. in high school i did alot of sports. i played soccer for both the school and for premier clubs. the premier was great because we got to travel all around playing in tournaments and stuff. loved it! i'm only still a little bitter that i was cut from both soccer and basketball at the end of high school. i played on these premier teams that alot of those girls didn't make but, well, my parents weren't loaded and couldn't give loads of money to the booster clubs and i had to pay for it! my mom and dad live in connecticut - i went to middle school and high school there. let's just say i'm glad to be back in the bronx! i played softball for the first two years of college and really didn't like it so i helped start the girls golf team Smile we came in first in the state my senior year! and that's saying alot since CT has a lot of richies whose kids play golf Wink after i was cut from soccer and bball (grr, i'm ok) i ran cross country and track. really hated running but i had a blast goofing off!

besides sports i did national honor society (nerd!) and key club and belonged to the youth group at my church. i think that's about it Smile

Fun questions, thanks!

1. not too much on the weekend agenda this weekend. it is supposed to be really nice tomorrow so we will probably go to the pool that we belong to. i need to get a printed picture of thomas for his ID for the club. tomorrow night my friend is having an herbalife party. she's lost a bunch of weight doing that. obviously i'm not going to be dieting any time soon but the shakes are supposedly a good compliment for preggies as a way to get all the nutrients we need. worth checking out.

sunday? hm, i may send DH with DS to go see his parents. i don't get along with his family as they are all certifiably crazy (there's a whole thread dedicated to them from my other birth board) but they are still DH's parents so usually i just have DH bring thomas to visit them. they live in the poconos. thank god it's not any closer. so, if he does that then i think i may go see a movie or two. i LOVE going to see movies by myself. is that weird? also, i love movie theater popcorn Smile

2. my favorite TV show is LOST! yes, i know it's over but it'll always be my favorite. in fact, a few years ago when we were in hawaii we went on the LOST tour of oahu and saw all the different places where the show was filmed. it was really cool! other than that i like the office (well, this past season hasn't been that great) and i loved the british version of the office. i watch a bunch of the crime dramas and my guilty pleasure lately is so you think you can dance Smile

3. favorite food? kraft macaroni and cheese! followed by pizza (new york style obviously!) and hot dogs. classy right??? my favorite dessert is chocolate cake with white icing. mmm now i'm hungry. we're having pizza tonight but i'm only having one slice and getting a salad too.

4. i think thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. every year it's at my uncle joe's. he lives about 20 min away. my dad's one of 10 and pretty much the whole family is there! it's great because you get to spend time with family, eat awesome food and you don' thave to worry about buying presents and having to spend boatloads of money!
