..Which Is Better?..

Paper or plastic: Is that even an option anymore? I always get plastic. I know, I'm horrible for the environment.

Went to a movie: Recently to see Inception. Crazy.

Your most prized and important possession: wedding rings, photo albums/scrapbook, wedding album & cd of all of my wedding pictures
Your biggest accomplishment: landing a great career, marrying my husband
Your biggest fear: something happening to my family
Your greatest talent: loving unconditionally & hopefully soon I can say that I am a great mommy

..What Do You Think Of?..
Abortion: i could never do it but I'm not sure that I can make a statement saying that woman should never have a choice. I do, however, think the mom should first have to view an ultrasound before making that decision.
Pre-Marital Sex: I personally don't agree with it. I waited & it didn't kill me. However, with that said, I don't think that anyone is a bad person if they choose not to agree with me.
Death Penalty: I think it has its place. However, I would have a VERY hard time being the person administering the injection, flipping the switch, or pulling the trigger.

..Who?..
Makes You Laugh the Most: Kyle, my family, Kyle's family, my patients.
Is the Nicest Person You Know: probably my Nanny
Do you go to for advice: my husband or sister
Do you hate: nobody, it's not worth it.
Knows the most about you: Kyle & Katy
Has it easier, guys or girls: Obviously it's easier for me to say guys.
Sends you the most emails: The world of spam. But aside from that, probably Kyle.

..What Makes You?..
Really Happy: getting a good night's sleep, taking a good nap, my awesome hubby, playing with my puppies, hearing Kinsley Anne's heartbeat & seeing her sweet face, getting ready for November...
Really Sad: some of my patient's situations/conditions
Really Angry: abuse (child, sexual, etc), senseless crime, ignorance, cockiness, oblivious people...

..What About?..
School: Done with it for now. Won't say I'll never go back, but the incentives would have to be pretty great!
Your friends: I have a few really close & genuine friends and I love them all! :)
Being female: Wouldn't trade this for the world. I find it to be quite the privilege and pleasure to be carrying a growing baby inside of me despite my aches & pains.
Life: I try to keep life in perspective & remember that someone is always going to be better off & worse off than myself...even on my best days & even on my worst days.

..Are You?..
A Rebel Or Do You Follow All The Rules: Usually a follower of rules..but not always.
A Leader Or A Follower: I like to be a leader but definitely know when to shut up and follow
A Good Friend: I try to be! I am a very loyal person..& sometimes more than I probably should be.
A Good Listener: I'm working on it. I need to do more listening & less speaking.
Shy Or Outgoing: Usually outgoing

..About The Future?..

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? happily married with Kinsley Anne as a healthy 10 year old & hopefully she will have a brother or sister! I plan to be in a house that Kyle & I design & build living on our 10 acres that we already own.
Do You Like To Dream Ahead Or Go With The Flow: I like to dream ahead (which is different than planning ahead), whereas Kyle is more of the realist, but I am good at going with the flow as well.
