Her’s Day Thursday

Hers Day Thursday Girl

 

Its been a while since I’ve written a Her’s Day Thursday post, and I promise you its been worth it! I’ve found some great books and toys to encourage your little lady to chase after her dreams, inspire her to create, and increase her self-confidence!

This book by Ashley Rice is full of poems and mantras dedicated to helping your girl with confidence and motivation to chase after her dreams. Whether her dreams are to be a fashion designer or a firefighter, this book will pep talk her through it all!

Is your daughter obsessed with building things? Or maybe she has an interest in all things STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and you want to build on that passion (see what I did there?). Snag her this awesome set from K’Nex Mighty Makers! This set comes with 13 world landmark building ideas, as well as information about the landmarks and surrounding areas!

This coloring book is not only a great way to get your gal off of screens, its an awesome tool to help start conversations about your child’s aspirations. According to Amazon, “This groundbreaking coloring book is all about building a girl’s confidence, imagination, and spirit! The 22+ coloring pages encourage girls to think beyond social conventions and inspire conversations with adults about what it really means to be confident, brave, and beautiful.”

Got a gamer gal on your hands? Teach her how to code with this Wonder Workshop Dash Robot! This little robot (who, for some reason, reminds me of The Pigeon) comes with an instruction/challenge booklet and is even compatible with Lego bricks and Lego Technic bricks! The possibilities are endless!

 

Do you own any of these? What does your fierce female think of them? Share in the comments below!

Mommy Monday

Mommy Monday New Banner 2

 

Sometimes, as a mom, you have to just embrace the crazy around you and laugh at the ridiculousness that will inevitably happen. At least, that’s what I try to do when my kids have ground Cheerios into a freshly vacuumed floor or unwound an entire roll of toilet paper. Which is why I am loving my latest Amazon find!

This hilariously true-to-life coloring book, #MomLife: A Snarky Adult Coloring Book, is full of pages that describe what every mom deals with. There are pages for those (literal)”Oh crap!” moments:

And for those “Is-Your-Father-Home-Yet-So-I-Can-Have-A-Glass-Of-Wine?!” moments:

Other pages are included and are hilariously titled:

  • Congratulations on Your New Vajayjay

  • No Talkie Before Coffee
  • I Love you to the Moon and Back
  • Mommy’s Juicebox

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background3

 

Hallelujah, its Friday! Can I get an amen?! I know some folks woke up feeling very distraught because it looks like the UK and the EU are never, ever, ever, getting back together! But don’t fret! I’ve got some nerdy nifties to turn that frown upside down!

 

It seems like food trucks are everywhere these days! And its not just humans getting in on the street-vending delicacies! Your feathered friends can partake now, thanks to Perpetual Kid!

This Cheep Eats “food truck” hangs from just about anywhere! Fill it with some seed and watch birdies line up around the block just to sneak a taste!

 

Y’all, adulting is hard. Between going to work, remembering to pay the bills–and more importantly, to put on pants–life can get a little overwhelming. Keep you and your pals motivated with these:

This Big Book of Awards For Grownups includes citations for being awesome or geeking out about various fandoms! <–Perhaps deserve that one?

 

Parenting is stressful. One thing that has made it easier (besides locking myself in the bathroom and watching Netflix on the iPad) is the sweet nostalgia of coloring. I’ll admit, I’ve sometimes stolen Huff the Tot’s coloring books for my own, but now I’ve got my sights set on another:

fgf 6-24-26lotr

One coloring book to rule them all! This book includes pictures from the animated movie, Peter Jackson’s trilogy, and artist’s renderings! Eee!

 

My niece and nephews have a TON of Nerf guns. I’mSO not joking. They probably have two large storage tubs full of ’em. My brother-in-law is a wee bit obsessed. But I’m thinking this NASA engineer has him beat! Check it out:

Happy Friday, y’all! Its been a KA-RA-ZEE week around here and I’ve been off my blogging game a bit. But, I’m back today with geeky goodies to get your weekend started on a nerdy note!

Am I the only one that sits around and wonders what life would be like if unicorns existed? And what would their farts smell like? Well, wonder no more! Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Bag of Unicorn Farts

This bag contains sachets full of the essence of unicorn methane! And, what’s better, 10% of your purchase goes toward the Unicorn Children’s Foundation, which helps nerodiverse children. Read more about the foundation here!

 

You guys know I have mad love for Harry Potter. And with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them coming out soon, its pretty much reigniting the flame. But so are these!

HP Coloring Book

Four, count them FOUR coloring books are hitting the shelves! They include the one above, magical places, magical creatures, and favorite characters! Check out more about the books here!

 

Game of Thrones isn’t known for its happy-go-lucky storylines (Hold the door, anyone?) nor for bringing people together (except Cersi and Jaime, amirite? Hey-oh!) But now, GoT is bringing people together for a fun game night with this!

jhjp_game_of_thrones_clue_combo

Its GoT Clue! This double-sided board game features settings in the Red Keep and Meereen as well as 12 suspects (Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Sansa, Littlefinger, Margaery Tyrell, Daenerys, Hizdahr Zo Loraq, Missandei, Daario, Jorah Mormont, and Grey Worm) and weapons from the show, including the Faceless Men! Gather the clan and speculate widely!

 

Alice Through The Looking Glass hit theaters last week and the merch is EVERYWHERE! And I am LOVING it! Like this a-DORK-able dress from Hot Topic!

I seriously LURVE this dress! I don’t think I could pull it off, but I will totally gaze at it adoringly every time I pass HT whilst taking Huff the Tot to play at the mall playground.

 

Happy fangirling!
