"Action packed show today! Am I doing the frog segment or is @SavannahGuthrie??" she wrote. Savannah tweeted back that Hoda was totally sober with 16 minutes to air.

Hoda and Savannah palled around with Martha Stewart and got ready for Spring in the plaza with NatMo. Hoda even won a flower designing contest (mostly on enthusiasm), which proves it's never to early for her to summon the competitive beast within.

By 10:00 a.m. Hoda was ready to go with guest co-host Anthony Anderson. They tried baby food and showed off some hidden talents during host chat.

They ended the day trying out a new "shot ski" toy - and good thing that was towards the end of show!
