I've recently received two awards and wanted first to thank them, and then to fill them out.

The first was from the fabulous geochick and she gave me five questions to answer...

1. Do you still live where you were born/grew up? Why?
-- I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and I don't live there anymore since my parents moved us away from there when I was only five years old. I don't consider that "home".

2. What's your favorite holiday and what makes it so special?
-- Hrm. I don't really have a favorite holiday. But if I had to answer, I'd say Christmas. It lasts longer than a day and I love getting ready for it. I also like giving presents to those I love. And of course, I also like getting them!

3. Do people IRL know about/read your blog or do you keep it relatively private?
-- A few IRL people read my blog.

4. What's your favorite color?
-- Orange

5. We're all pretty open here in the interwebs but how open are your IRL about fertility struggles? What influences your openness or lack thereof?
-- I'm very open about my fertility struggles IRL. I figure the more people more, the better it is for the next person to understand it. I want more people to understand this disease.

The next one if from the beautiful Claire.

Here's how the award works:
- Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award
- List 7 things no one knows about you
- Send the award off to 7 bloggers who you think are fabulous!

Here are my 7 things:

First of all, it'll be hard to tell you seven things you don't know about me since I tell you about pretty much everything going on in my life!

1. I like my toenails super short. If any of them grows at all, I cut them to the quick and peel them off. Gross, no?

2. I don't wash my face before I go to bed. I know I should, but I simply pass out at night and never take the time. I end up with mascara circles under my eyes when I wake up.

3. I'm a lotion whore. I use lotion ~way more~ than the normal person.

4. I have a boob job. Although this isn't quite a secret!

5. I wake up Karl at night just so I can cuddle with him. I tell my husband I heard him crying.

6. I like to watch documentaries on just about everything.

7. I hate that the job of making dinner is a "female" job. But that the majority of chefs are male. My husband and I share most jobs in the house except making dinner. I freaking hate it.

You are so welcome for the award, Nancy - very much deserved!

I also don't wash my face at night - and wake up with racoon eyes! I agree with the cooking thing, my sisters other half cooks all the time, making me a jealous girl! I wish DH would cook some nights, it would almost feel like a vacation! And, where we live, there are 2 restaurants, and they're both crappy!

Congrats on the awards and thanks for sharing your answers.

I'm the same way about my fingernails as you are about your toenails. I hate when mine grow any little bit! I have to clip, then wash my hands, and then it's the best feeling in the world.

Oh, and about the lotion: insert "soap" instead -- that's me! :)
