bff: why to date a danny

15 Jul

HAPPY FRIDAY! Welcome to our second installment of BFF= Best Friends Friday! If ya’ll missed it last week, BFF is when we combine our forces and post together on the same topic! Because, like we said week.. we wanted to write this blog together.

partyin' partyin' YEAH

Maybe you haven’t noticed, maybe you have, or maybe you thought we shared a boyfriend…(we do not) us girls here at Cupcake Dynamite both date Dannys. Originally a Daniel for each, they are both known by friends and family as Danny.. or as we like to say: D or D$.

Courtney's DJ D$

jamie's fisherman D$

And they’re both perfect. GAG. Kidding, they aren’t perfect but they make us perfectly happy, for some of the following reasons. And I present:

Why To Date A Danny:

1. Dannys will bring you water in the middle of the night. Whether you’ve worked out too hard, or you’ve had one too many cocktails at night, everyone has had the experience of waking up at 3 AM with a mouth as dry as the.. Arizona desert. It doesn’t matter if your Danny is passed out completely and you have been awake staring at the wall thinking about juice boxes for the past hour, D$s will be happy to wake up, jump out of bed, grab you a glass of water (ice for me) and allow you to drink 1 sip before falling back to sleep. Even if they don’t pop out of bed and fill your glass immediately… you will always be able to convince them to do it.

"not pushing him down because he appropriately filled my glass"

2. Dannys like blogs. Or they at least pretend to. Even though they out us (Like asking how Jamie’s 3AM cheesesteak in Philly is real healthy living..) They deal with our desire to snap photos of every meal and even make plans to create their own blog to combat against us in becoming successful fitness/food/fun bloggers. These days Dannys get jealous when we snap pictures of our own meals and not theirs. “Why isn’t MY meal blogworthy??” Danny Dynamites? Cheesesteaks, bacon, and beer?

3. Dannys grow accustomed to healthy living. Jamie’s D$ recently ordered a VEGGIE GYRO at lunch, at Courtney’s D$ is running with her through the streets of NYC. Who are these healthy living inspired men? Not the boys we first started dating. What’s next Dannys, yoga on the beach? Would you like your UPS lunch to be packed with temph? We’ll oblige.

...but after we scarf down this mac&cheese.. of course..

4. The side kicks. Dannys have incredible sidekicks. They will take you under their wing and allow you to be their great friend as well, making for one big happy family..aka the “my boyfriend’s boyfriend” syndrome. But that’s alright. We like that our Dannys have some pretty solid BFFS (because after all, so do we.. ;)) even if sometimes we question who is actually dating our D dollar signs. Their sidekicks are super fun to hang out with and it has been so gracious of them to allow us to steal their boyfriends away.


Sometimes Danny’s BFF even lets Courtney and her friends borrow his glasses for pictures. (They’ve definitely been seen on the bloggie before…)

it's fun having someone's glasses to steal 😉

    It’s pretty much expected that my boyfriend fills my water glass before we go to bed. Poor thing doesn’t know that I’ll expect this for the rest of our lives. Such a fun post, ladies!

      THANKS! HAHA Right.. they think this is only a temporary cutesy dating thing…..wrong!

    I can’t wait to have an amazing boyfriend!! To actually live with. I am suchhh the girl that loves seeing her boyfriend all the time in passing, even if it’s not to have like super deep conversations (or super deep other things) it’s just nice to see their face. YOU SHOULD DO A POST ON THE BEGINNING OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP ❤

    • cupcake dynamite July 15, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

      Good idea, we definitely will! And if your future amazing doesn’t get you water in the middle of the night CONSIDER LEAVING HIM. JK. But really, very important relationship component.

    My boyfriend has started changing his diet little by little to make himself healthier…and it’s kind of cute. But sometimes he thinks he is making healthy choices, when really, he is just a little off…(Example: “But I ordered the chicken salad sub from Quizno’s today- that sounds healthier! Are you proud of me?”)

    Awe this is so cute. My boyfriend tried to change his diet but it was an ultimate fail. HA. Adorable!
