phantomrose89 came up with this idea, and I personally think it's really neat. Sure, we know bits and pieces about each other, but by answering these questions maybe we can get to know each other even better :) So here we go!
Our first photo as a family
Name: Lindsey Daniele
"Lindsey" is actually my Dad's middle name. "Doc Lindsey" was our towns Docter for YEARS. My Dad was the last baby he ever delivered, so my Meme decided to name him "Steven Lindsey". "Daniele" was the name my Mom always used for her babydolls. I actually go by "Dani", though. Mom and Dad began calling me that when I was a baby.
Me and my cousin Jade at Disney last Spring!
Country of Origin: USA Baby!
I am very blessed to live in the great state of Florida. I live an hour away from just about EVERYTHING; great beaches, Tampa, Orlando, DISNEY WORLD, lots of theme parks, oh, and did I mention DISNEY WORLD?! I have literally lost count of how many times I have been there! I feel so very lucky to get to go so often. I realize lots of people never get to go, and that really breaks my heart. Everyone should be able to experience Disney at least once in their lifetime.
My Favorite Movie AND Princess!
Favorite Disney Movie: Cinderella
ANYONE on here that knows me, knows how much I love this movie AND this Princess! Cinderella was the first movie ever purchased for me. I have been obsessed with it ever since!!
You can never read too many books.
One of my favorite things to do is read. Mom used to read at least 5 books to me every night when I was little. I like everything from Jane Austen to Nicholas Sparks. My all time favorite hobby now though, is spending time with the love of my life, Max...my Chihuahau :) he has been such a blessing to me. He sleeps with me, follows me around, likes to go for rides, and loves to give love and affection. He is my heart and soul!
Me and my little man at the beach!
I graduated from High School with honors, and attended a local Community College for one semester; the timing was just off...I wasn't ready to be there, so I dropped out, and got a full time job at the School Board. Now, I work at a Maintenance Shop with 18 guys; it gets VERY interesting around here sometimes! I would LOVE to go back to college and pursue a degree. My dream is to be a writer. One day I WILL get my novel published (one that I have been writing for almost five years off and on).
Music I Like:
I love all kinds of music, with the exception of country. There are only a few country songs I can tolerate. I don't want to hear about someone's wife leaving them or their dog getting ran over.
Movies I Like:
Besides Disney, I will watch just about anything. I am a HUGE movie buff. I'm not really into scary movies, becuase I am such a jumpy person, but other than that I love just about everything. The Oscars are a bigger event at my house than the Super Bowl, lol :D
Something quirky about me:
Wow...there are SO many to choose from! When I'm tired, I play with my ears. Rubbing them, pulling them, folding them over...I have no cartlidge in my ears. I can fold them all the way down. Thank God they don't stick out, lol.
Ashley, Me and Aimee before our Senior Prom
Someone who Inspires Me:
My friend Aimee, who passed away a year ago. She was the most strong-willed, independent, funny, crazy person I will ever know. In her last year of life, she had been diagnosed with M.S., & internal lupus. But that didn't stop Aimee! She had two children to look after; a daughter, Rylee who is 5, and a son Camdon who is 2. She had worked a double shift at work that night, and it was storming VERY bad. She died in a horrific accident on her way home. I lost one of my dearest friends on February 5, 2010, and my life will NEVER be the same. I will always keep her in my heart. I love you Aims!!!
This was taken one month before I got sick
Something I Believe in Strongly:
GOD. I know we don't discuss religion on here, and that's a good thing I think. We are all so very different with our beliefs, which I enjoy; it's refreshing. But God has played a huge role in my life. When I was five, I had a serious of seizures that would not stop. The medically put me in a coma, hoping that would stop the seizures. It did, but they couldn't get me to wake up from the coma. I was on full life support for seven days. On the seventh day, they told my parents that there was nothing else they could do...scientifically, they were stumped. My Mom, who NEVER ONCE left my side, fell to pieces. My Dad made her walk out of the room, and sit in the waiting area, while he went to get her a drink. There was a black lady sitting in there also (this waiting room was right by a nurses station) in a pretty blue dress and matching hat. They talked back and forth, but my Mom never mentioned my name to the woman. The lady stood up, walked over to my Mom and put her hand on my Mom's shoulder. My Mom later told me when the woman touched her she felt this calm sensation run through her entire body. She leaned down, and said, "Baby, it's gone' be alright. Dani WILL WAKE UP." With that, she walked away. My Mom rushed back to my room to find me choking on my life support tube that was down my throat. After that I was 100% fine. Later that night my Mom went looking for the lady, but had no luck. She went to the nurses station and asked the nurse who had been sitting there the entire time, where the lady was. My Mom described her to the nurse, and the nurse told her the only person in the waiting room that night was my Mom. To this day Mom swears she was an angel, and so do I. I'm not going to preach to anyone on here, but I couldv'e died right there in that hospital, but something or someONE saved me.
I would answer the other questions, but I think I've wrote enough for now!!
