    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    Oh and I have to say it's nice that people know Western New York exists. If I say I'm from NY, people say, "Oh wow, what's it like to grow up in a big city?" Then I say I'm from upstate, not near NYC at all. Like, several hundred miles away. And their eyes glaze over. And they say, "You don't have an accent or anything. Do you like the Yankees?" *head desk*

Sucrets wasn't pregs when I started, TLV and LPSTL were just looking at houses and getting them.I'm from Charlotte NC, but I've lived in NC, GA, VA, FL, LA and now IA.  I have family in VA, NC, TX, and WV.Love seafood - especially lobster, shrimp, and crabToday was ehh. I'm struggling with Christmas, and apparently, we're already making plans up here. I love Christmas; I'm just struggling with the 3rd year away from my family.I drink occasionally; when we go out - I'm more likely to have a drink at parties or on bike rides rather than at home or at dinner.  I like Captain and Coke and Southern Comfort and Coke.  I also like Malibu Rum with OJ.  Unfortunately, I do not like margaritas or tequila of any kind - it is no longer my friend.Got the pic covered!

    I love you Missy. Even though you are not smart enough to take online quizzes to find out really important information. ~cew

    I'll play.  I'm neither of those names, I'm a Jessica (one of the many on here).  I used to work in advertising as a copy writer, but at the moment I'm enjoying being a stay-at-home mom to my beautiful seven month old daughter, and I'm 23.  I've been on P&E since the end of the summer (as a lurker).  I'm getting married in September of 2010.  I was born in SC, raised in MA, and now I call NC home and plan to for the rest of my life.  I LOVE seafood, I'm a New England girl at heart :)  I had an uneventful but good day, I suppose.  I do drink, not as often as I did back in the days before baby, but I'm a big fan of Captain Morgan and a die hard Yuengling beer drinker.And I have a sig pic, but could have used some help the day I posted it... took me like an hour to figure it out haha!

    Betrothed - a friend of mine was taking classes at a community college in SoCal (Orange County) and had a classmate who seriously did not know NY was a state AND a city. Almost everyone thinks NYC is the state capital.

    It's even worse when I say I've never been to NYC. Jaws literally drop "but how could you not?!" Because when I go I'm visiting old people who have no desire to sit in a car for 8 hours to sit in traffic and walk along busy streets.

Rochester, NY-born and raisedDo you like searfood? Icky... nope.Did you have a good day today? Not at all.  The Nyquil should make it all better, though.Do you drink?

    People can't seem to grasp that I live in the same state is the city, but that I'm about 6 hours of the city, so I've been there twice.  When people ask where I'm from I always say "New York State."  I've had a number of people say "Oh, like the city?"

    Not going to lie I didn't read through this whole thread but I promise to go back through. I am a Kathleen but I've never gone by that. I believe I was a Kathy for a few days but my parents gave that up pretty quick. I am 22 going on 23 next month. I was born exactly a week before Christmas much to my disadvantage when it comes to presents. I've done a little bit of everything most recently I worked in jewelry as a salesperson. Unfortunately I worked for the worlds biggest douche and I was so unhappy. I was bringing work home with me and was so stressed to the point where I probably cried about my job twice a week. So FI and I decided we could make it on his salary until I found something that wasn't going to cause problems in our home life. I've been lurking around P&E for a few months, though more seriously since I stopped working a few weeks ago. I occasionally throw in my 2 cents but mostly I used to come in to late for most of the posts. We were hoping to get married May of 2011 giving us plenty of time to save up. Unfortunately our house had other plans and we have to refinish an entire room in our basement because of water damage to the tune of about 5 grand. Being a homeowner rocks. I LOVE seafood. Especially seasoned shrimp. I spent most of my life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland near the Choptank River/Chesapeake Bay so now being landlocked (we live in Idaho) is pretty tough. My favorite drink is a frozen strawberry margarita...yum. I also enjoy regular lime margaritas as well. Today was okay. Its weird not working I have never really had that luxury before. And yes if you can provide me with info on how to put a picture in my sig without making it ginormous I will totally do it. Okay I think I answered them all...whew that was a long post.

    It's so funny. I guess people everywhere are oblivious. People in Arizona assume the entire F-ing state of NY is NYC, and my NY cousins used to picture AZ as the Old West. I remember when we were little one asked if we rode horses to school. Super cute when you think about it.

    You can squee TJ. I won't mind.Whit, my back up plan is teaching high school history. FSIL is a high school teacher with a grad degree and her pay definitely doesn't suck. But... I figure college is better because 1) I can teach more specialized classes than general "US History" and 2) In theory, people actually WANT to be in college and maybe try a bit harder.

    Brooke- I totally understand your pain. I am a natural brunette who does not know how to surf and I have small breasts. When I was in bootcamp for the AF I was assigned to a squad with a big busted, surfing, blonde California girl. No one would believe me that I was born and bred in this state. They all assumed that I was a transplant because every girl in CA in blonde, blue eyed, busty, and surfs.

    WELL. How convenient :) I am in fact a Katie, just Katie, nothing else, I too had people not believe me when I was younger, so I just made up fancy names like Katarina. I go by Katie or Kate. Also, my middle name is Lynne, and sometimes I wonder why my parents didn't just name me Katelyn. I am an Army civilian, I am 24, and have been posting since maybe September. I am getting married in June of 2011. I am from Okemos, MI, then went to school in Decorah, IA, and now I live in Annapolis, MD. I LOVE seafood. My day was mediocre at best, capped off by getting a package in the mail I couldn't open because the key USPS left wouldn't open the apartment's package mailbox. I drink, and I drink equal opportunistically. I love anything FI makes bc he is the best bartender ever. I am currently drinking a Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss.

    Whit- really you don't. This picture was taken after getting it professionally flat ironed. Normally it is a curly, frizzy, mess. I always love it when it is straight- then it is everything I could ever hope to have for hair.
