The A-Z of Danielle

photo 2

I've seen this on a million blogs, but most recently on one of my favorite blogs, Our City Lights (Diana's the best, be sure to check her A-Z out also) I thought I'd play along, too!

A. Age: 29
B. Bed size: King. Our bed is the biggest, most comfortable bed I've ever slept in.
C. Chore that you hate: I hate cleaning the guest bath's toilet.
D. Dogs: one little Boston Terrier, Madeline. She's the biggest sweetheart.
E. Essential start to your day: going into H.'s room and being greeted with the biggest smile ever. I live for those moments when he reaches up, puts his arms around my neck and holds on so tight, then kind of sighs into my neck. Ugh, I love it. I also am a huge breakfast person and need a healthy, balanced meal to start my day.
F. Favorite color: yellow (mostly mustard-y shades), gray, mint green, white
G. Gold or Silver: gold. But as far as wedding rings, I like white gold or platinum (like mine).
H. Height: 5'3"
I. Instruments you play: none
J. Job title: stay-at-home mama, housewife, writer/blogger.
K. Kids: one darling boy.
L. Live: Arizona
M. Mother’s name: Kathleen
N. Nicknames: Dani, D
O. Overnight hospital stays: yup. I tore my ACL in high school. And then again when I had Henry.
P. Pet peeves: passive-aggressiveness.
Q. Quote from a movie: (from Amelie) Amelie: [whispering in theater] I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old American movies.
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings: one younger sister, Lauren.
U. Underwear: "Really, internet?" I like Diana's answer, so I'll leave it.
V. Vegetable you hate: Zucchini. Gross.
W. What makes you run late: not too much. I hate being late and try to avoid it at all costs. If anything, I'd say poor planning.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: knee and dental
Y. Yummy food that you make: how could I choose? I love to cook. Right now I'm super into Chicken Marsala, and attempting to veganize it for Hank.
Z. Zoo animal: none. Zoos make me really sad.

So that's it! Simple. Happy Monday, y'all!

  27. There is no letter "T"

  28. I want to know where you shop! you always look so darling.

  29. I always imagined you being like 5'9 or 6'! Personality shines through much "taller"!

    Also, I noticed the commenters said there's no T. I didn't even catch that, either. Oops!
