    What is a typical day like for you? Give us a snapshot of a Day in the Life of Alissa.
    6:30 am - wake up, start getting ready for work
    7:30 am - wake up T, start getting him ready for daycare
    7:50ish am - leave the house, take T to daycare
    8:15ish am - Stop at 303 Coffee for my morning cup of iced coffee
    8:30 am - Work, mess around on Preg.Org
    4:30 pm - Leave work. From here, depending on the day, I either go pick up T, run any errands I have (like going to the grocery store) and cook dinner, or I go workout and DH picks up T, runs errands and cooks.
    6:30 pm - Dinner
    7:00 pm - Clean kitchen
    7:30 pm - Give T a bath
    8:00 pm - Put T to bed
    8:00 pm - Do laundry, finish any cleaning or picking up around the house
    8:30 pm - Watch TV/movies, hang out with DH, read, unwind
    10:30 pm - Bed

    What type of music do you like?
    I like a variety, but my faves are rock and hiphop

    Did you go to private school or public? Did you like school?
    Public school. Yes, I was a very good student and I always liked school a lot.

    What do you secretly or not so secretly want T to be when he grows up?
    Haha. I don't know. I just want him to be happy and fullfilled in his life. I've thought maybe he might do something with music because he already loves it so much and can carry a tune and all of that. But at the end of the day, it's his choice - I just want him to do something that he loves.

    Is your home neat or messy?
    In between. Right now it's as neat as a pin because I cleaned like a maniac yesterday, but usually it is somewhere in between. My rule is, it can be a little "lived in", but it can't be gross.

    Your favorite place to shop for clothes and shoes?
    This is so bad - I hardly ever shop for myself so I don't really have a favorite. I guess Target, Kohl's, and Old Navy because I'm cheap. LOL

    What makes you really happy?
    Watching DH play with T. It always just.....pulls my heart up over my head (if that makes any sense) to see them laughing and playing together.

    What makes you really angry?
    Things that I think are unfair. I'm really hung up on "fair" (even knowing that life itself is unfair) so when I see something that I percieve as unfair, either a social cause (like gay marriage) or just personal issues (like someone treating someone else unfairly) it makes me really mad.

    What was your most memorable year? What events took place that made it memorable?
    I think that there are 3, but I will choose the year that I turned 23, since it kind of led to the other two. The year I turned 23 is the year that DH and I began dating, and my life really changed for the better. I was kind of lost in my early 20's. I had dropped out of college, I was in a job I hated, I was in a bunch of toxic relationships (both with a boyfriend and some platonic "friends.") I wasn't doing much of anything productive and wasn't sure where I wanted to go with my life at all. Then I got together with DH, and suddenly it was like everything just clicked. The other two are 25 (the year I got married to DH) and 28 (when I had T.)

    What kind of laundry detergent do you use?
    Tide Free

    What is your biggest pet peeve?
    The "Entitlement" attitude

    I'm this way too. It drives me insane when things aren't "fair". It's probably the Libra in me...

    What is your Zodiac sign and do you agree with the description of your sign?
    I'm a Cancer. I do agree with the desciption - we are supposed to be really invested in and focused on our families and homes - I'd agree with that.

    What is one thing you are insecure about?
    My weight

    What is one thing you are very confident about?
    My charm. LOL

    What “style” is your home/furniture?
    Erm. I don't know what you would call it. More modern, I suppose. Mostly it's just colorful. I love vibrant colors, and I think our house shows that. Our living room is painted yellow, with 2 deep red leather couches, red drapes, and some throw rugs that have deep multi-colored squares on them. The pictures on the walls are mostly black and white in black frames. My kitchen/dining room are painted blue, and I have a rather plain brown wood dining room table with blue placemats. The drapes to the sliding glass door are kind of a khaki color. I have more colorful pictures in that part of the house. Our bedroom is a deep green color, with dark wood furniture, white drapes, and yellow and green and brown accents. Our bathroom is a lighter green, with purple, off white, and brown accents. T's room is my favorite - his walls are light blue with white trim, and my SIL and I made home-made stencils of different animals (elephants, lions, ducks, monkeys, dogs, penguins) and stenciled them in white in a straight line around the room about chest high. My MIL and I made the curtains which are white with blue dogs and stars. My MIL's best friend got him some of those wooden letters that say "Tristan" and she glued these adorable spongy animal stickers on them. The pictures on his walls are animal themed. And he now has a 4 foot long dragon in the corner of his room that he can sit on that my dad gave him. Spoiled. LOL
