Happiest birthday on earth!

I have had a month long birthday celebration. It has been ... well the only word I can think of to describe it is AWESOME. I have had fun all month long.

The first part of the festivities included and awesome concert. Snow Patrol. Derek bought me a ticket as my present. It was a really chill and fun concert. The band was funny and down to earth. They played their new song, Just say yes, which is my new favorite song. It was only their second time playing the song which is kinda great! I got to spend a day celebrating with the family and I love them all so much. I got the coolest gift from my mom, a V-blade Mandoline Slicer. Check it out. It slices everything. I am slightly nervous I will slice my finger off one day but so far I have only sliced foods. It even slices french fries. LOVE it.
The weekend of my birthday Caity, Carly and I went down to LA and had an epic weekend full of the beach shopping and of course DISNEYLAND. It was magical and so much fun. We stayed at Caity's friend from home Alex. It was an amazing weekend full of amazing people.
By far my favorite part was Disneyland. I love it there and it had been far too long since I had seen Mickey and Minnie. We went on my actual birthday and I got to wear a pin and everyone, the cast workers, strangers, Everyone wished me a Happy Birthday. It was so fun. I sported my Minnie ears proudly all day long. Even though I was turning 22 I felt like I was turning 6. I felt so young all day and I was excited for every ride. The park was all decked out with Halloween decorations. My favorite holiday( well technically it is tied with Christmas) and they had some amazing Halloween Fireworks. I loved them. They incorporated the villains with their music with the fireworks and I light/laser show on the castle. WOW. So great.
Needless to say I had an amazing Birthday. The only thing that could have made it better... If ALL of my favorite people could have been there with me. Next year folks. Mark your calendars. Oct. 25 year 10 (2010) Disneyland celebrates Dannielle's Birthday.


Try something New

I have been trying something new.. A new blog. Check it out.

Fred and Friends

I found the funnest products ever while browsing the web the other day. Fred and Friend. Here are a few of my favorites.



Today I woke up and it was one of those mornings where you wish you could sleep forever so you could live in your dreams. My dream was basically the greatest thing that could ever happen.
As you know from MY TEAM I love Zachary Quinto (Spock, Syler). LOVE HIM. Well let me just tell you what happened it this blissful dream of mine.

I was hanging out with some friends at this sweet beautiful Beach House. Ok it was My very own beach house. (perfectness #1) You could see the waves from my house. All of my favorite friends where there hanging out just chillin. Then all of the sudden Both Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine ( also love him captian kirk... ahhh) Show up at my house. Wow... ok but it gets better. I of course persue Mr. Quinto. And well flirting happens with both of these fine men by all the ladies in the house. Since this is my dream they both are interested in me and they are both trying to get my attention. WEll we end up on a couch watching a movie. Natalie and I were sitting next to each other, then make room for zachary to sit in between us. Ahhh Wonderful right. SO its all flirty flirty la la wonderful and then he gets up to go get something from the kitchen I follow him and everything is looking up because he is flirting back. I go back to the couch and who is sitting in his seat but Chris Pine. Well lets be honest that is nothing to complain about because he too is wonderfully attractive. So I sit next to him and he is extra flirty. Then all of the sudden he leans into kiss me and from then on my heart is changed. He is so great and he keeps whispering cute things to me as we sit on the couch.
Well this is where it gets really good because Zachary got really jealous and well they started fighting over me. Nothing physical or anything I am not a violent dreamer but they just kept fighting for my attention and my love.. Well basically it was the greatest thing in the world.

Unfortunately I woke up before I found out who won my heart. I may never know wins my heart over. If only this was real life.

The Best of Both Worlds

Like Hannah Montana, This summer I have had the best of both worlds! I have not been a rock star, but I have been a kid half the summer and an adult the rest of the summer. It has been a GREAT summer full of fun and many adventures!The next few posts will showcase all of the fun I have had!


The simple things in life.

So somethings make the world a better place. This just happens to be one of those things.

the fastest, most hygienic hand dryer.

If you have not come across one of these brilliant machines, FIND ONE.
It is much like a classy Jetsons device.
Simply insert wet freshly washed hands into the airblade as shown on the pictures and you will be swept away by the thin slices of air power drying your hand. My favorite part is the way the speedy air wiggles the skin on your hands like the rush of wind wiggles your cheeks while you fly through a roller coaster. This machine has your hands dry in seconds and leaving you mind in awe.

Whenever I find one of these in a bathroom it is like Christmas. And love. Wrapped up in slick siver speedy air.


Proud to be a white person.

I just want to recognize this satirical genius. I found this blog a couple weeks ago and I keep going back. It is so funny and so true. I found myself over and over thinking hey I do that, or hey I like that. Not to mention there was tons of laughing involved. This work of wonder and laughter is called Stuff White People Like (stuffwhitepeoplelike.com) and it is just that. A blog about what white people like. Some of my favorite posts include, Bob Marley(#125), Girls with Bangs(#106), Asian Girls(#11) and Vespa Scooters(#126).

Yesterday I experience a true white person moment and I was apart of post #67 Standing still at concerts. It was great.

I have enjoyed every minute of this fantastic website and I am even contemplating buying the book. It is just that great.
