Getting To Know You...

Getting To Know All About You!

Name: Danielle Dawn Wolsey
Age: 25

1. I am infatuated with Dill Pickles.
2. But not all Dill Pickles are equal... they have to be "The King Pickle" kind... nice and sour!
3. I am apparently not immune to morning sickness... I have been sick for 6 or so weeks... give or take a few days.
4. I hate feeling sick... even more so throwing up.
5. I love feeling handy and needed... being useful but not used.
6. When I was little I tried to "run away" and made it to the backyard... turned around and crawled back through the window and went back to sleep.
7. I have moved over 27 times in my life...
8. apparently I like change...
9. I love to cook and it bugs me that I cant right now since I cannot handle the smell or standing for that long.
10. I have a lazy eye... Ryan thinks it is a really cool party trick!
11. When I go to sleep it has to be completely silent and dark.
12. I despise doing dishes by hand but I love my dishwasher.
13. I solve problems backwards... I find the solution I want and work from finish to start... "60% of the time it works every time".
14. I love watching movies and I quote them frequently... see above quote!
15. I haven't had a full soda since I have been pregnant this is HUGE for me!
16. I love surprising people... but cannot usually wait to surprise them... I am getting better at not ruining the surprise.
17. I hate being cold... no matter how many layers I put on I still seem to feel cold if it is cold outside.
18. I am madly in love with my husband.. but I am sure you all already knew this.
19. I am very possessive of my hair... I hate short hair and have gotten my hair cut by the same person since I was 12... my aunt.
20. I love traditions... I come from a family that has lots of them and married a man who has almost none of them... we are still finding middle ground on holidays.
21. I love being out doors and exploring... hiking is one of my favorites!
22. I get flashbacks all of the time of places I have been and things I have done throughout my life... this happens at least once a day.
23. I love to travel and since I cannot go as far away as I can to see things I have never seen I watch the travel channel... a lot!
24. I get excited when the Ensign comes in the mail and read it all within the first two days of receiving it.
25. If I have a hard time falling to sleep I write letters, poems, songs and blogs even... in my head... for some reason I always tell myself I will remember them in the morning... but they are never as eloquent as they were the night before.

The Secret Is Out!!!

I am Pregnant!

I had my first Dr. Apt on Tuesday and it went awesome. I was lucky to have Ryan there with me and he was more than happy to be there.

We went in and she estimated our due date which is Aug. 1st and then we got to hear the heartbeat...

Ryan was expecting more of a thump thump sound for a baby heartbeat so when we heard the swishing sound Ryan wasn't really sure what he was hearing but the Dr. and I were both put at ease. Well this baby is a mover and she had to chase it around to find the heartbeat again... once she had a more steady listen on the heartbeat she made the comment of "And there is the heartbeat we were looking for!". Once Ryan heard her say that he was relieved and you could see the anxiety melt off of his face and we were filled with joy! It was a great feeling to hear the heartbeat and know that everything is ok. Both Ryan and I were a little teary eyed and to keep myself from shedding a few tears of joy I decided teasing my husband was a good idea. He didnt mind though since he had been teasing me all day... we love it.

After miscarrying twice...making it to 12 weeks is a milestone for us. I know it sounds silly to call it a milestone but to us... it calls for celebration.

As of today I am 12 weeks and 5 days.

2 Awesome Years!

He is still perfect for me!

Well... another recent development that I have had this past month or so of not blogging was mine and Ryan's 2 year Anniversary. It doesn't feel like it has been two years but... sure enough it has. I guess him being gone for 7 1/2 months kind of shortens the amount of time it feels like to us.(Pre-engagement)

We are waiting for our tax return to spend money on each other but we did have a nice quiet day together. Ryan had the day off which was nice because I hadnt seen much of him that whole week. I swapped days with a girl at work and was fortunate enough to get the day off I wanted. I had told Ryan I was going to be working and when he woke up next to me that morning at around 9:30 in the morning he was a little surprised.
(After 7mo. of Deployment)

I made him his favorite breakfast, french toast and eggnog... luckily they still have some left in the stores around here. For lunch we went out to Applebee's more because of sentimental reasons than anything. We had our first date at an Applebee's in Utah and thought it would be a good tradition to have ... something we can share with our kids down the road. We were dressed up and happy to be out of the house for a few hours... we just enjoyed our time together and then headed back home for a movie.
(Hanging out together)

We popped in the movie as dinner was cooking in the oven and had a nice relaxed night in. I baked sheppards pie for Ryan, also another one of his favorites, and he has had plenty of leftovers since.

These past two years have been great and I look at my husband everyday and I feel so blessed to be with someone who loves me so much and completes me so well. Not a day has gone by these past two years that we havent said "I Love You" to each other or made the other smile. He is more perfect for me today that he was yesterday... and it will always be that way.

Recent Developments

Christmas was great... It would have been much more fun if I could have gone home and been surrounded by all of my family but I had my husband, for most of the day that is. Ryan had to work that day but life moves on.

His Christmas present to me this year was a Ryan original... he made me a sofa table and although it wasn't my ideal present... it turned out great! We are still picking out the stain for it.

He worked very hard on it and is rather satisfied with his handy work... good just Ry!

Happy New Years Everyone!

Happy New Years!!!

I am not a big New Years party person... We stayed at home... which was fine by me and today has been productive so all in all my new year has started out great. I get to spend the long weekend with my husband and get things done around the house.

This morning was spent sleeping in, shopping for food, cleaning house, building a kitty fort out of boxes, putting away Christmas decorations and watching the Rose Parade(which is my own personal tradition).This was my favorite float this year... It was a working Rube Goldberg Machine run off of only human power! Very impressive.

Tonight we get to feed the elders and Ryan is going to finish putting together my Christmas present, hopefully.
