30 Days, Day Seventeen

Day 17-Something you're looking forward to
I wish we had some fun travel plans coming up that I could put here, but at the moment we don't. We are waiting to see how things pan out for the rest of this year (Vacation time wise). So today I am looking forward to tomorrow! MH is coming to pick me up for a birthday lunch, and then we will go out with friends for dinner. I also get to take a test that I have been looking forward to ;)
I am also looking forward to May 28th, my BFF Vanessa and I are going to go see GLEE LIVE!!

30 Days, Day Sixteen

Day 16-Dream house

Hmmmm a dream house? The house I dream about if I were to win the lottery :)

I know excatly how the inside the house will look. The outside is another story. Of course a beach view would be nice, but I've never been one to love the idea of living at the beach. So maybe near a lake or a vineyard. I always wanted a house with three floors the bedrooms on the top floor, the kitchen and living areas on the second floor, and a totally awesome basement or bottom floor. A bowling alley, a fully stocked bar, a pool table, a theater room, the whole works. Oh how fun it would be to win the lottery. For now, I love my little home, it makes my heart happy.

This kitchen is beautiful!

30 Days, Day Twelve

Day 12-What you believe
I'm not really sure what this one is asking. But maybe it is about my religion? I am a non-denominational christian. I believe there is a God & Heaven. I believe that his son sacrificed his life for me.

30 Days-Day Ten

Day 10-Something you're afraid of
Sadly this is an easy one since I'm afraid of quite a few things. I wish I wasn't, but I just am.

I have a few phobias like bridges & heights, but buses I really don't like I'm truly afraid. I get really nervous and scared. I have only ridden in one three times since the accident. Two of which were for the walk of hope for my Aunt Jamie. Ok enough of that ;) "See" you all tomorrow.

Plus we are getting together today because we are saying goodbye to one of own (tear) These are some of my best friends. I actually met them all online while we all planned our weddings. I think we are an intelligent, beautiful, and just all around awesome group of girls.

30 Days, Day Eight

Day 8-A place you've traveled to
My husband Josue and I love to Travel, since getting married we have take 4 big trips and many little trips. But one place that we keep going back to (infact we are there right now!) is Las Vegas, Nevada. I think we like a lot about it. Cheap hotels, great food, dancing, walking, bright lights, fun, and of course the gambling. We love the gambling ;0) Josue loves 21 and I love the slots. We have yet to win a big jackpot, but we have never really lost much either.

30 Days, Day Five

Day 5-Your siblings
I have 2 sisters. Kimberley who is going to be 23 this June, and my half sister Haley who will be 14 this July. Regrettably I didn't grow up with Haley so sadly I don't know her all that well. I know she is a cute kid, with a great heart. I love her and wish that I would take the time to get know her better. Kimberley and I grew up together mostly raised by my mother. She is a wonderful young lady, and I am happy to call her friend. Right now she is studying criminal justice at Cal State Fullerton! I wish her all the best in her endeavors and love her so so much!

30 Days- Day Four

Day 4-Your parents

My parents are both amazing, interesting, and inspirational people. John Bruce and Maria Lisa Brownwood. My Parents divorced when I was 11 and I lived mostly with my my Mom and sister from then on. My Mother is wonderful, I don't even no how to explain in words how truly awesome she really is. She is there for me, at the drop of a hat, pushes me to always do my best, and loves me unconditionally. I only wish I could show her how much I love her back, and how much she truly means to me. I always thought I had the cool Dad, and I did! He is an Artist, a realist, and innovative. He may not have lived with me for the second half of my life, and he may have hurt and made me angry but he was there for me in the big moments. He was there to cheer me on, and in the background if I ever really needed him.

I thank my parents for raising me and teaching me about life, love, respect, and most importantly religion. Without them I wouldn't be who I am today.

There are very few pictures of my parents together, but here are a few.

30 Days- Day Three

Day 3-Your first love

I'm not sure if this post was supposed to be about my first literal love which would have probably been my cat, or my parents, or some toy. But I took this question as asking who was the first person I have been in love with. I had a couple short relationships and a few dates, but the first person I fell in love with is the person I know call Husband. I remember the day I met him like it was yesterday, September 30th, 2001. We started out as friends but there was something special about him. Once we started dating, we fell in love right away, and I knew he would be the person I grew old with. Josue is an amazing Man, I love that I get to fall asleep next to him every night for the rest of my life. The first 2 1/2 years of our marriage has had its challenges but with each experience we go through we just grow stronger as a couple, and love each other more for it. I love the man I call Husband, and I am so happy that he is my first and only love.

30 Days-Day Two

Day 2-Meaning behind your blog name
My Blog name is NOT creative at all, actually after reading other peoples blogs, I've considered changing mine. If only I could think of something interesting. I have recently added a sub title which basically explains who I am and what my Blog is about. I got rid of the "Newlywed" part since technically I am not a newlywed anymore.
So Daniella's Blog (um duh my name my blog) lol
Nurse, Wife, Daughter, Traveler, Cook, and Friend (just who I am and things you may come across while reading my blog)
