It's as easy as...

In an attempt to reveal more about myself,

I have compiled this list. I hope it works.

Adventurous? I wish I were.

Best friend? My husband Ryan, of course!

Cake or pie? Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE pumpkin pie.

Drink of choice? Caramel apple cider from Starbucks is about as good as they come.

Essential item you use everyday? Benefit concealer. It's perfect.

Favorite color? Green

Greatest accomplishment? My sweet family.

Hometown? P-Town

Indulgence? I buy expensive shampoo and make up. It makes me feel pretty, it lasts forever, and I'm worth it.

January or February? Both! I love January because it's a fresh start, and who doesn't like those? February because Valentine's Day makes me happy.

Kid's and their names? Easton, Abigail and Owen. I love "O" names. Everyone should name one of their children something that begins with "O". They are fun to say. Apparently, I like vowels as well. All I need is an "I", a "U" and a sometimes "Y."

Life is incomplete without? Forgiveness

Marriage date? January 29, 1999. 

Number of Siblings? I have one sister. She is three years older than I am. When we were young, we went through this phase that every time someone was taking our picture, we would do our "model pose". I was completely convinced that I was a model and the pictures were going to be in a magazine.

See, I told you.

Oranges or apples? Oranges. If someone else peels them for me.

Phobia's? I am fearful of a lot of things, my biggest fear is that I am screwing up my children. Does everyone have that fear?

Quote? "You are unique, just like everyone else."

Reason to smile? Owen stopped puking.

Season? Fall. I love the colors, the temperature, the smells, and watching "You've Got Mail." It's a fall tradition I do with myself every year. I love the part where Tom Hanks is describing fall in New York and how it makes him want to go and buy school supplies. That's exactly how I feel in the fall.

Tag three people? Alicia, Marilyn, and Noelle.

Unknown fact about me? When I was two there was a 5X7 picture of me on the cover of the the newspaper. I had gone to a parade to see Santa and that was my fifteen minutes of fame. When I was 2. At a parade I wasn't even in. 

Vegetable you don't like? Radishes. 

What's your favorite movie? I have watched "Return to Me", Pride and Prejudice (A&E version) and Sense and Sensibility more than any other movies I own. They are my favorites.

X-Ray's you've had? When I was in sixth grade I broke my right arm. I'm pretty sure they had to x-ray it.

Your favorite food? I am loving Orange Chicken from Panda Express. I can't get enough of it. Love, love, love it!

Zodiac sign? I am a Sagittarius. When I was a tween I would read my horoscope every month in Teen and YM magazines. Now I read them in Life magazine. I don't put any faith in the Zodiac, but I like to read them.


  1. Danyelle that was such a fun list! I was a Teen and YM fanatic. Every month I would race to the mailbox to see if my newest issues were in. The horoscopes and "Say Anything" were my favorites. Isn't the Orange Chicken so delightful?

  2. I also love the Carmel Apple Cider from Starbucks...but then my sis-in-law so thoughtfully told me it has like 800 calories...YIKES!

  3. Danyelle, that was the coolest list ever! I loved it!! I too am addicted to Panda's orange chicken. It's so much like Bamboo Garden's (remember the days?) hunan chicken that was my fave there.

  4. My magazine of choice when I was a tween was guys are probably too young for that one.

    Great list! Lots of fun to read.

  5. I loved the list too. My favorite magazine was YM growing up. I remember BOP as well, Karen. I remember seeing the pictures of Kirk Cameron and thinking he was soooo cute!!! I love the Caramel Apple Cider too. I drink that in the fall and the Peppermint hot chocolate around Christmas.

  6. I love it! what an original idea of how to write things about you. i'll have to try that drink at starbucks. sounds amazing.

  7. I love your list! That picture is cracking me up! I remember at Sherice's baby shower thinking you were SOOO young to be getting married, but I also remember thinking how happy and calm you were, so it must be the right thing for you, and apparently it was!

  8. Danyelle I love your ABC list. My favorites were:

    A- I really wish I was more adventuresome as well, but doesn't it seem dumb to do life risking things when you're a Mom? i don't know but that's the way I see it.
    N- I love that picture of you and Sherice.
    T- Thanks for the tag!
    Y- Isn't orange chicken the best? I also love the lemon chicken at Double Dragon in Kennewick.

    Very fun list, and I even learned a couple of things about you!

  9. I can totally see Owen in that picture of you and Sherice. I love the list. However, I was for sure that you would say your favorite drink was pure, spring mountain water just retrieved from the nearest most wildest location and bottled on the spot by some kind of water scientist with scientific equipment and water snob instincts just like your own. Am I right??

  10. I loved your list, too! Very creative and original way to share interesting facts about yourself! I love finding out new things about people. Very fun to read~!
