Re: Getting To Know You Poll

  • 1) Birthday Month: August

    2) Astrology Sign (Do you follow our horoscope?) Leo, and not really- sometimes it's funny to read.

    3) Favorite Restaurant (What type of food do they serve, and what's their "must have" dish/drink)? Geez, I don't even remember the last time I went out.  I absolutely love Rodizio and Tucano's (neither are local), both are Brazillian Steak Houses and have the BEST Brazillian Lemonade.

    4) Most recent (new) movie you saw? The last movie I saw in the theater was Breaking Dawn.  Having a LO killed my movie going activities.

    5) Are you on Pinterest?  What's your next "must do" Pinterest project? Yes!  I have a whole line up of projects for our new house this spring!

    6) What other boards on the Nest/Bump do you frequent? I probably spend the most time on the Adoption board and the 9-12 months board.

    7) Did you give anything up for Lent?  If so- what? Ugh yes.  I gave up processed sugar (which to me meant junk food/baked goods/confectionaries).  I also gave up online shopping, but that didn't last long.  I needed a new camera charger and after stopping at 5 stores, realized I could just order it on Amazon.

  • It has been majorly slow lately!

    1) Birthday Month  - August

    2) Astrology Sign (Do you follow our horoscope?) - Virgo.  I don't follow my horoscope, but I've always found astrology interesting.  I'm a Virgo through and through. 

    3) Favorite Restaurant (What type of food do they serve, and what's their "must have" dish/drink)? - Wild Thaiger.  Thai, obviously.  They have the best Pad Thai, Beef Panang and Peanut Chicken...Oh and the Thai Tea....to die for.  OH and the coconut mango rice dessert.  Mmmmm

    4) Most recent (new) movie you saw? I think the last one we saw was The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 

    5) Are you on Pinterest?  What's your next "must do" Pinterest project? Isn't everyone??  Yup.  I've been really wanting to start working on transferring pictures to wooden planks.  First I need to print the pictures though.

    6) What other boards on the Nest/Bump do you frequent? I read Money Matters and sometimes the Breastfeeding board.  But I'm rarely on TN/TB nowadays.

    7) Did you give anything up for Lent?  If so- what? Not religious - but I tried to support a friend who gave up caffeine for Lent... Hasn't gone well so far.  I forgot that the main reason I got into the coffee habit was because of my chronic migraines.  Not so easy to give up.

    September

    2) Astrology Sign (Do you follow our horoscope?)
    Total Virgo

    3) Favorite Restaurant (What type of food do they serve, and what's their "must have" dish/drink)?
    Our latest favorite is BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse. They have salads, pizzas's baked potatoes (like HUGE ones). Lots of things. I LOVE the Crispy Honey Mustard Salad and the Pazooki..  The chocolate chip is our go to, but I had some of a peanut butter cookie one the other day and it was pretty amazing!

    4) Most recent (new) movie you saw?
    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - It was AMAZING! I cried like a baby but it was just amazing..   

    5) Are you on Pinterest? What's your next "must do" Pinterest project?
    I guess? I am signed up and all that jazz but I just don't get it. I am not a big DIY person. I look at recipes but that's about it. It's a craze that I did not get involved in for sure.

    6) What other boards on the Nest/Bump do you frequent?
    I don't. The Boston nesties have their own spin-off board that I am on daily as well as some of my NH Nestie friends but that's it.

    Nope!
