I've been tagged!

So, my friend Niki tagged me... which has nothing to do with spray paint... I am suppose to share 6 things about myself so here I go:
1. I am both a perfectionist and a procrastinator...two traits that often work against each other to make my life just a little crazier than it needs to be.
2. I absolutely love being a mother! It has been one of the greatest blessings I have ever received. It has taught me to love selflessly and has expanded my heart in unimaginable ways. It is one of the hardest jobs in the world but the compensation and benefits are some of God's sweetest gifts. I have two precious little children who have so much love for me, and an endless supply of slobbery kisses and tender hugs.
3. I have a secret dream of one day practicing medicine. I realize chances are slim to none that this will ever happen, but I figure that statistically, I have two thirds of my life ahead of me and who knows what can happen. Maybe it is time to lay off Discovery Health Channel and E.R.
4. I love reading! I am always interested in a good suggestion and haven't quite grown out of the youth genre. I love Holes, Gathering Blue, The Giver, Because of Winn Dixie, Tuck Everlasting, Matilda, and so many more... I can't wait to start sharing these books with my kids! I also love anything by or about Jane Austen. The Vampire series were great too (I even got my husband into them).
5. I miss all of my favorite Arizona restrants: Gecko Grill, Costa Vida, Cafe Rio, Joe's BBQ, Crackers & Co., Oregano's, Texas Roadhouse, The Farmhouse, (did I get them all???). Every time we come back to visit I coerce my family friends into helping me feed my cravings... can you tell I am pregnant?
6. I am a pretty lucky lady! I have an awesome husband, some truly wonderful friends, two mostly sweet children (and one on the way), wonderful supportive parents/inlaws and so many blessings I couldn't possibly name them all.

Kate, Marissa, and Kati... I am now tagging you.

We are too much a like, I fall into that perfectionist and procrastinator category too. You were making me drool listing all those great restaurants in AZ. And I love the change to your blog, so cute!

Your blog looks very cute Melissa. I was studying Sports Medicine in college and still love the medical field as well. That's a neat thing to learn about you.
