the lovely seven

ashley, at our happily ever afters, wrote a post on seven things about herself! she tagged everyone and i thought it would be fun! hopefully i won't repeat anything anyone knows! here goes...

1. i have great intentions to work out, but do not like to do it. i am trying to be better, but it truly is torturous sometimes.  i have the vision of how i want to look of course, but i definitely wish it would just come, regardless. i know, i know, it doesn't work like that, but i sure wouldn't be complaining if it were! wouldn't it be great if we all had the same confidence we did when we were younger?!

2. if i could get on a plane right now i would fly to swaziland, africa. i am going on a mission trip to swaziland in the summer and my heart has definitely already landed there. i am so passionate about this ministry and i can't wait to get my hands on those sweet little children (in a completely non-agressive way).

3.  i absolutely love to decorate and wish i had the money to re-do "my" house, also known as my my mom's house. i have gotten to do a few rooms, but of course i was on a budget, which most of the time i enjoy, but i wish i could have no budget to do a whole house! how funnn!!! some of my favorites:

4.  ice cream is my guilty pleasure. it doesn't matter what flavor, what time, or where it is from, i love ice cream. i recently fasted from ice cream and it was tough! that is awful, but it is true! let's just say i am extremely thankful for ice cream! 

5. i am the most tender-hearted person you'll meet. i am the girl who cries if she sees a dead animal (yuck!) or over any story of inequality or death. example, i once hit a bird while i was driving (sick, i know) i called my mom in tears because i was so worried that i killed a little bird's mom or dad. my mom tried to convince me that it would be okay, and that it is different in "bird's world, but i was tore up for quite some time. i know, i am pathetic. i am trying to embrace this, but at times it gets real annoying. 

6. i love the blogging world! it's been so fun to get the "hang" of things. i'm still really new, but i am loving learning all the ins and outs. i hope to continue this! it has been a great way to stay in touch with the one's i love, but more recently, to meet new people! i am getting to meet tons of great, godly girls! thank you JESUS! 

7.  my family is so important to me! i would do anything for any of them. i do wish i had a bigger family! we have a very small immediate family as well as extended family! i wouldn't trade it for anything, maybe just sprinkle a few more in! the more, the merrier, right?! here is my family:

grandma & i
my best friend (mom) and i
the brother and myself

i hope this gives a little more insight to who i am! thank you ashley for tagging everyone! i have enjoyed reading the others and meeting new people! it's spring break and i can't wait to sleep in tomorrow! i am looking forward to this week! i don't have any plans and i am loving it! my goal is to try and take as many pictures as i can from now on! i love to take pictures, but i always forget! i enjoy being able to put them on here and share them with everyone! hopefully you enjoy too! if not, i do! hehe! have a fantastic week everyone! 

"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."
Acts 20:24


  1. Hi Danielle! Thank you so much for following my blog! I see we both share a love for Africa. I'm so excited to see that you will be doing mission work there this summer! I would LOVE to buy one of your t-shirts to help with your trip. The saying "my heart is in Africa" is so true for me. How can I purchase a t-shirt?

  2. Danielle, I had to change the link to my blog. It is now carolandbrianfletch@blogspot.com

  6. So fun! We're a lot alike. However, I'm thinking your decorating style doesn't include a lot of neutrals... :)
