Behind on memes and awards!

I keep falling behind on memes I get tagged for and awards I'm given so here's a big post for them before I forget again! If I've forgotten one you've tagged me for please let me know!

Kara tagged me for 5 things you don't know about me. I've done 2 or 3 similar memes but I'll try to think up a few more things :) Hm, how about I do 5 foods I like that you may not know about me lol-

1- Cantaloupe. Mmm, one of my favorite fruits. Nice and juicy.

2- Artichoke. Probably my favorite vegetable. Dipped in Miracle Whip

3- Trout. Especially fresh fished trout cooked over a fire, mmmm.

4- Cheesecake. When I visited New York we went to this little diner near our hotel and the cheesecake was sooooo good!

5- Veal Parmesan. Used to be my favorite meal at Olive Garden until they stopped serving it :(

Somebody tagged me for this one, but I can't remember who, actually I think 2 people have. If it was you let me know! Wait, Mama Pajama was one :)- 5 Best Nights

1- The night Hubby proposed. It was completely unexpected (he'd been going on for months about how he wasn't ready to get married) and I of course said "Yes!" then we laughed for about an hour while making plans.

2- Wedding. The whole day and night went great. We had a wonderful time. I remember when Hubby saw me for the first time in my wedding dress, he just stopped and said "Wow!" The weather was perfect, good food, lots of family and friends, it was all just so amazing.

3- When Toddler was born. I was so happy and amazed to have my little boy. It was late when I finally got to hold him after my c-section, after midnight. I got maybe 2 hrs of sleep that night and it was also one of my worst nights ever because of the pain and not being able to get out of bed and being so tired. But every time I looked at my precious boy my heart just filled up and I was so happy.

4- When Baby was born. I was so excited and on a high from my vbac. I remember not sleeping well that night even though he slept awesome and only woke once or twice.

5- Cancun vacation with Hubby in January. More than one night of course, but it was a wonderful vacation.

Kendra tagged me for this one and I've had a hard time doing it cuz I don't want to sound all high and mighty lol 10 things I love about myself-

1- I'm almost always optimistic. I always think that things will turn out ok :)

2- My eyes are a pretty very dark brown with nice long thick eyelashes, people always assume I'm wearing mascara but I don't.

3- This is silly, but I love my fingernails. They are usually nice and strong, smooth, and grow well. When they are nicely painted people ask if they are fake cuz they look so perfect. Of course since having kids they tend to get broken more and painted less lol.

4- I don't take offense easily, if something can be meant in a good way or a bad way I tend to assume it was meant the good way.

5- I forgive easily.

6- Sarcastic wit. It runs in the family. I think all of us kids got it from our dad lol. I try to be funny and sometimes I do a pretty good job, except in writing, it just doesn't come out the same.

7- My cute kids, I'm pretty proud of the fact that I made something so adorable (well, I guess Hubby helped a little lol).

8- I am easily amused, just ask Hubby.

9- Being a mom. I'm not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I love that I am a mom and try to do what I can to raise my kids right.

10- My sweet tooth. OK, I don't love it when it comes time to go to the dentist lol, but I love having yummy stuff to much on :D

And finally one more thing from Mama Pajama :) She gave me a "You Make Me Smile" award, which originated from Miles to go... Aw thanks! And I am passing it on to anyone who comments on this post, because comments make me smile!

Feel free to be tagged with any or all of these memes if you want to do them!

You did the 10 things I love about myself meme! Good for you. I know what you mean about sounding full of yourself. Don't worry, you didn't sound that way at all. It's good to praise our good qualities sometimes.

I too have nice nails. It does help that I'm no prenatals still for breastfeeding though!
