Bedtime Beats: Llama Llama Holiday Drama

  • 9:08 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

Sometimes, I hold on to a song that I LOVE until I can find the book that will be a perfect fit.

I’ve had Run the Jewels ‘Blockbuster Night Part 1’ sitting in my back pocket for monthsssss…

I realized it was totally worth the wait the second I started reading Anna Dewdney’s ‘Llama Llama Holiday Drama’…

Here you go!!

Got a book you want me to rap? Send it on down to the studio or email me and let me know what it is – danielle@MyMagic949.com!!

As it turns out, Justin Timberlake celebrated a lot like you – with one MAJOR difference.

Full disclosure here…

I was originally going to setup a fancy margarita quiz for you for Cinco de Mayo, but I totally got distracted by the Strawberry Margarita Cupcake recipe.
