 They include:

  • Admiration
  • Adoration
  • Aesthetic Appreciation
  • Amusement
  • Anxiety
  • Awe
  • Awkwardness
  • Boredom
  • Calmness

Get ready to spend even more of your money at Target! If your Target has a Starbucks inside, you’re in luck. The big box store and the coffee company are bringing shoppers a Frappuccino you’ll only find at Target Starbucks: The Dark Mocha Frappuccino.

This frapp has extra-dark cocoa, coffee, milk and ice blended together and it’s topped with vanilla whipped cream. So it’s chocolatey and sweet, but not over the top like some Starbucks drinks can be.

The Dark Mocha Frapp has been available since the end of August and they’ll keep making them until supplies run out. By the way, your regular Starbucks has all the ingredients to make this for you. A rep confirms you just need to ask the barista for a Frappuccino made with dark mocha, ‘cause it’s the same stuff they use for the Midnight Mint Mocha.

 Disney staffers aren’t allowed to use negative language in front of guests so they’ve come up with some code words to use instead.  A rude person is called a “treasured guest,” and when someone vomits they call it a “protein spill.”  “Code Winnie” is used when kids pee in the pool, while a “white powder alert” is when someone distributes the ashes of a loved one at the park .  (?!?)

Back-to-school photos have become a big thing for parents. Moms and dads snap shots of their little ones documenting the occasion, sometimes with an elaborately decorated first day of school sign. But one mom’s “lazy sign” for her son’s first day of “pre-pre-K” has won the Internet and she made it totally last minute.

Meg Rowe admits that she had big plans for a creative sign for her son Teddy to pose with, but she woke up late. So the clever mom scrapped her original design plan for a colorful creation and went with a simpler sign. And it’s still amazing.

Rowe used a black marker and yellow construction paper tacked to a corkboard and it wasn’t the prettiest first day of school sign, but it was clever.

“Mom’s Lazy sign for Teddy” reads:

“Age: Old enough to know better.

Height: Tall enough to treat the TV like an iPad.

Weight: Seven of 10 in lower back pain.

Oh, whoops, the date: 9-6-2017.”

It might not have been what she had in mind, but it’s still a win! Let’s hear it for the lazy moms out there.
