Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday! Woot, woot! Let me tell ya, I’m super glad that this day is over! Let’s dive right in the gloriously geeky goodies I’ve found for you!

 

We are all goddesses, right? Now you can show just how much of a goddess you are with this awesome Thor-inspired wristlet from Think Geek!

Cute enough to go with any outfit and big enough to hold all your crime-fighting essentials!

 

The Tenth Doctor may be long forgotten to some Whovians but not to this girl! Ten will always be my favorite which means I need to add this next find to my Christmas list!

Seriously, how adorable is this?! Not only will I love it, but I’m hoping my little nerdlings will love it too!

 

Speaking of Christmas, the holiday season is upon us and that means parties will be filling up your weekends! Want the man in your life to look dapper while also sporting his nerd-side? Look no further!

This suit is guaranteed to to turn heads! The jacket and pants are emblazoned with the face of none other than Darth Vader and accented with red buttons and lining around the pockets. Force couture at its best!

 

Everyone likes to get mail, right? Well, actually, that depends on the type of mail. Bills? Not so much. Cards and letters? YES! Send old school snail mail to your peeps with this lovely Jane Austen-inspired stationery set!

For the sharp-dressed Jedi: 

Those bland beige and brown robes are a thing of the past! Help your rebel look fly while arguing about intergalactic trade law in this:

When you think of best friends, who do you think of? Lucy and Ethel? Batman and Robin? Kirk and Spock! Show your bud you’ll always have their back with this Star Trek ensignia friendship necklace!

Happy Friday, peeps! We are officially in Christmas countdown mode now that we are in December! Are you excited?! Need help getting into the Christmas spirit? Then I’ve got some nerdy nifties sure to put some jungle in your bells!

Last night, the fam and I watched Charlie Brown Christmas on TV–one of my favorite holiday specials! YouTuber Only Leigh decided to put her own geeky spin on the Christmas classic by making the mash-up, “Merry Christmas, Will Byers!” (a blend of Peanuts and Stranger Things!) Check it out:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but my Black Friday was spent binge-watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. And while I wanted to slap Rory (and Lorelai) a few times, I still really enjoyed the visit back to Stars Hollow! So much so that I think I need to grab some GG swag, like this adorable tee from I ❤ Apparel!

sportgrey_49bead61-b77c-482f-b0e6-6128518df003_1024x1024

This tee comes in a variety of colors (and you can also get this print on hoodies and mugs)! Plus they have other tees from Stars Hollow hot spots like Al’s Pancake World and, of course, Luke’s Diner!

 

For some folks, the holidays aren’t all stockings and rainbows. For some that aren’t able to make it home, the holidays can be a little sad. But have no fear! HomesickCandles.com can make you feel like you’re back with your family in your home state!

oklahomaboxwithcandle_grande

After a group of friends relocated out of state, they wanted to still feel close to their roots and Homesick Candles was born! Each candle is comprised of scents native to or famous in that state. The description for my home state (Oklahoma) reads: “These scents will take you back to the good ol’ days at home in the Sooner State with hints of pecan, barbecue, cinnamon, and vanilla.” Mmm…smells like home!

 

Anyone else seeing their computer covered in boring, yellow Post-Its? It can make your desk seem very bleak indeed. Why not spruce up the joint with these:

rainbow__06445-1480468645-1280-1280

Rainbow scratch art notes will surely make those reminders like, “Take out the trash!” and “Pick up dry cleaning!” feel like less of a nuisance and more exciting when written on these! You can get 125 notes for $8.99 from Perpetual Kid!

Happy Fangirling!

 

 

Mommy Monday

Mommy Monday2

 

Well, its the Monday after Christmas. Time to take down all the decor, vacuum up the tree needles, and eat all the Christmas candy before the New Year brings in its resolutions to lose weight.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! We certainly had a great time at the Huffman Homestead. It was insanely busy, but still great. There were a few things I wish I could’ve changed… like my kid’s reaction to Christmas morning.

Before you have kids, you imagine all sorts of scenarios: your kid behaving like an angel at restaurants, never allowing them to watch TV, and how pleasant and magical Christmas morning will be.

Then, you have a child. And you get a big ‘o dose of reality.

Your child throws a tantrum at Olive Garden because they don’t have Chick-Fil-A nuggets.

You hit “Next Episode” three times on Netflix because you’d rather listen to Daniel Tiger talk about going potty than a screaming child.

And Christmas is a wrapping paper and cardboard box blur of trying to get toys out of the Fort Knox-like packaging before your child starts crying.

Yes, our dreams very rarely live up to reality.

Take our Christmas morning for example.

I thought it would be beautiful and wonderful and Huff the Tot would wake up in a GREAT mood, ready to see what Santa brought her.

Mommy Monday Christmas Expections

 

I underestimated, however, how much like her mother she really is. This is what really happened:

 

Sigh. 

Oh well. There’s always next year, right?

Y’all, tomorrow is Christmas Eve. However, I don’t know if its that its basically springtime in Oklahoma or the fact that I’m getting older, but it doesn’t really feel like Christmas to me, know what I mean? I feel like me (and everyone around me) is so overwhelmed, overworked, and just plain worn out.

I know we can’t be the only ones.

So, on that note, I’m giving you a little something that you can probably relate to.

I give you, “The Twelve Pains of Christmas”:

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday Star Wars Release Day, y’all! I am so stinking excited to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens I can barely stand it! Sadly, I couldn’t get tickets until Monday evening, so I’m thinking I’ll be on a “social media blackout” until then. I’ve had waaay too many things spoiled just by scrolling through my newsfeed. I’ve learned my lesson.

 

Today is not only momentous because Jedis and Storm Troopers are back in the cinemas, but also because it’s exactly ONE week until Christmas! If you’re still trying to get those last-minute/hard-to-buy-for gifts knocked off your To Do list, I can help!

 

For the “silly walker” in your life, look no further than the Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail 40th Anniversary Edition!

Monty Python 40th Anniversary Edition

This awesome set comes packed with bonus features, behind-the-scenes looks, and cast interviews all packed into a castle box complete with animals you can toss over the walls! Who wouldn’t love that?!

 

For the Trekker Mom-To-Be on your list, keep it logical with this Vulcan on Board maternity tee from Think Geek!

irqk_vulcan_on_board_ruched_maternity_tee_mb

Live long and prosper, Momma.

 

For the one who treats their life like a musical, grab this sparkly necklace from Perpetual Kid!

Wizard of Oz Necklace

Just don’t be offended if they try to click the heels on the charms to go home in the middle of your Christmas party.

 

For the overworked/sarcastic mother in your life (which, let’s face it, is basically every mom!), let them don this little beauty so everyone can see their hilarious snark:

I childproofed my house necklace

Pretty sure my mom probably said this a few times when my sisters and I were little, ha!

 

Have you finished your shopping yet? Better hurry!

With Christmas coming up, it’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

 

Did I get everyone on my list something? Are the guest rooms ready? Did I remember to mail the Christmas cards?

 

Yes, it’s so much fun to dress up, be with family, and stuff ourselves silly. But let’s not forget those around us that are less fortunate. I’ve got a list of some awesome charities that you can get involved with this holiday season!

 

Operation Christmas Child

Try It Tuesday OCC-Logo-Banner

Operation Christmas Child—also known as Operation Shoebox—sends a shoebox full of goodies to children all over the world! They could end up in Africa, South America, Asia; anywhere! Huff the Hubs and I really enjoy doing this! Its so much fun to go shopping for a little one and knowing you’ll get to brighten up their Christmas!

 

Angel Tree

Try It Tuesday AngelTree_copy

The Angel Tree program is a great one that my family has been doing for years. This charity focuses on the children of incarcerated parents. The parents fill out the Angel decals with their children’s names and what they’d like for Christmas. Then, you pick up a decal from a pick-up spot (normally a church or mall), shop for your kiddo, bring the presents back (wrapped), and the kids get gifts from their parents for Christmas!

 

Toys For Tots

Toys for Tots

Operated by the Marines, TfT focuses on helping children have the best Christmas they can, despite financial setbacks. There are so many drop-off locations throughout the nation that you can bring a new, unwrapped toy!

 

My Two Front Teeth

MyTwoFrontTeeth170x88

According to their website, My Two Front Teeth’s vision is: “to reduce the pain of poverty and help strengthen the bonds of society by bringing simplicity, efficiency, and personalization to the charitable gift-giving process, encouraging everyone to experience the incredible power and joy of giving.”

 

Another way to help those in need is to simply pack a bag for the homeless. Keep it with you in your car and hand it to someone you see while you’re out and about. If you need some tips on what the homeless actually need, here’s a great site with some helpful tips!
