  • 8:59 am Friday, April 28th, 2017 by Danielle

This week’s pup is as sweet as can be….I PROMISE you that Daisy won’t last long at the Humane Society of Pinellas.

She’s a 2-year-old American Staffordshire mix, she looooooves people, and THAT FAAAACE!!

Rapping Bedtime Stories: Ep. 2 Goodnight Moon

  • 9:13 am Thursday, April 27th, 2017 by Danielle

First of all, thanks to MYA for coming through and letting me borrow her copy of ‘Goodnight Moon’ – I still can’t find ours (WTH?!?).

In return, I promised that I’d rap it for her. She thinks I meant I’d ‘wrap’ it for her, in toilet paper, so hopefully she’s ok with this instead.

Ludacris’ freestyle of ‘Llama Llama Red Pajama’ has officially changed me. I promise not to junk up your life with these videos…but this one was too fun not to share.

Kelly Clarkson LOSES HER MIND Over Surprise Birthday Gift

  • 6:34 am Thursday, April 27th, 2017 by Danielle

She may be worth $28 MILLION dollars, but that doesn’t mean Kelly Clarkson doesn’t appreciate being surprised by her best friends with a ‘Girls Trip.’

Watch her unscramble her birthday present – in her sweats with no makeup – and lose  her mind in the EXACT same way that you or I would.

Woke up this morning to a birthday scavenger hunt that ended with an anagram!! Best surprise ever! #morninghair #whereisthegirlstrip #sweaty


Rapping Bedtime Stories: Ep. 1 Brown Bear, Brown Bear

  • 8:36 am Wednesday, April 26th, 2017 by Danielle

I’m still brand new here, so you probably don’t know about my love of freestyle rap. And that’s fair.

I’m not sure that I’m any good, but I’ve been known to rap about current events, my friends, etc. and I have a lot of fun doing it…so if that ends up with you laughing hysterically at my expense, hey, that’s cool too.

Anywho, I’ve been looking for new things to rap about…and Ludacris just came to the rescue – BIG TIME!!

Have you seen this video of him freestyle rapping the kid’s book ‘Llama Llama Red Pajama’? It’s a staple in my house. [More]

Spotted at Target: Mario Kart CARTS…Seriously.

  • 8:06 am Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 by Danielle

If I was Santa Claus, which I’m obviously not because that would be silly,  Target would be on my ‘nice list’ so far for 2017.

Recently, they’ve been adding ‘feeding stations’ to their stores to allow parents to either bottle or breastfeed their babies, and now, THEY HAVE MARIO KART CARTS!!!

This is not a late April Fool’s prank. Here’s proof from Target’s twitter!!

Apparently, they’re teaming up with the new Nintendo Switch, and as part of the deal, 650+ Target stores are getting random Mario Kart-themed carts added to their fleet of regular carts!!

Certain stores are also putting starting line decorations up [More]

This Bruno Mars + Spiderman Mashup is INCREDIBLE.

  • 7:45 am Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 by Danielle

I’m not much of a Spiderman fan (#TeamBatman), but I have to admit…this video is impressive.

Don’t tell my son (also #TeamBatman), but I’m seriously considering taking up ‘That Spidey Life.’

April the Giraffe’s Live Stream is OVER…But You Can Still Watch Baby Grow

  • 7:56 am Monday, April 24th, 2017 by Danielle


For months, I’ve been checking in on April the Giraffe.

For months, I watched her pace in front of the camera. Each day, becoming more and more pregnant.

For months, I turned in, hoping I might catch her just going into labor.

When the day finally came, I spent wayyyyy too much time watching the footage. Like, wayyyyy too much time. I even watched the replay. Twice.

And now, IT’S OVER!!!!

To be continued…


Can Taking the Stairs Give You More Energy Caffeine?

  • 9:06 am Friday, April 21st, 2017 by Danielle

I read a story this morning that said that taking the stairs could end up giving you more energy than drinking a soda. You can read the whole thing here.

Since I was feeling extra sleepy this morning, I thought I’d try out the theory for myself…

Here’s how it went:

Stairs vs. Caffeine… 👟☕️

Danielle’s Dog of the Week – Julie

  • 8:38 am Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 by Danielle

One of my FAVORITE things to do is help shelter pups meet their new forever families.

I’ve been working with the Humane Society of Pinellas for years and I absolutely adore them.

HSP is a no-kill shelter, which is so important to me. EVERY single animal that walks in their doors leaves with a new family, no matter how long it takes.

Every week, I’ll be featuring an adoptable pup that is looking for his/her new home.

This week, it’s  Julie!!

Julie is a super sweet and energetic 3-year old mix. You can learn more about her here
