fifteen fill-ins | guest post by danyelle | dandee designs

fifteen fill-in-the-blanks by the inspiring and creative danyelle of dandee designs. danyelle is almost too good to be true; mama of five, crafter extraordinaire, inventor of cute ideas and designer with spot-on instincts. she is kind-hearted and a fast friend (and the first gal i forced a portrait with at ALT). danyelle kindly filled in the blanks to entertain you while i'm away playing hooky.

:: no matter what mood i'm in, i can always go for a: Handful of chocolate chips.

:: my favorite go-to outfit would have to be: jeans, colored tee, cardigan and TOMS. 

:: a good source of inspiration is: Martha Stewart Weddings. I'm not a wedding planner and I've been married for 12 years but I still find loads of inspiration within those pages. 

:: am so glad my parents taught me: to serve others. Growing up my mother was constantly doing kind acts of service for those around her. That is why I have this print hanging in my home. It reminds me of her and motivates me to look for opportunities to follow her example.

:: a song i like to dance to is: "Hey Na Na" by Katie Herzig.

:: i wish everyone knew about: Pinterest. It's the best way I've found to catalog all of those beautiful images I come across online.

:: the best thing in my makeup bag is: Bobbi Brown's Creamy Concealer. I'm a night owl. This concealer helps camouflage my dark circles in the morning.

:: my dream spring break vacation spot is: I have visions of my husband and I lying on a white sandy beach in the Bahamas. It doesn't get more dreamy than that, does it?  

:: this may be a surprise, but i am passionate about: Fingernail polish. Essie is my favorite brand. The formula is perfection and I'm sure there is no possible way you could convince me otherwise.

:: a favorite book that changed me for the better: The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom I love it more every time I read it.

:: one of my pet peeves is: Stickers on fruits and veggies. I'm not sure why, but before I can put away produce after a grocery shopping trip I remove all the stickers. Am I the only one?

:: my favorite daily ritual would have to be: Eating a bowl of cereal before bed. Most nights Ryan (my husband) and I plop into bed with our white latte bowls full of Life or Multi-grain Cheerios. Sometimes we read (and eat), sometimes we watch a show (and eat), and sometimes we talk (and eat!). It's a highlight of my day. 

:: i am trying to be better at: Patience. And reading more books than blogs.

:: the most recent rad thing i found online was: This pretty necklace from Elephantine. I have been thinking about it for a week. Does that mean I get to buy it? I hope so.

:: i can't live without: Watching my two year old hug + kiss his four siblings before he goes to bed every night. It's the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Ever.

It is so great that you have a routine with your husband everyday that you look forward to. My husband and I always try to walk the dog together before work, and it is great..except when it is raining!
