Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background1

 

Oh yassssss, it is finally Friday! One more week until chocolate bunnies, egg hunts, and everyone dressed in their Sunday best! Today, I’m going to share some nerdy nifties that you’ll want to drop in your little nerdling’s Easter basket!

 

Fan Girl Friday Easter Egg

This ThinkGeek creation and exclusive looks almost good enough to eat! (I wouldn’t, though… those bricks would hurt coming out!) This Build-It Brick Easter Egg kit comes with 4 individually packaged pastel DIY egg packets with one set of instructions! This is a great find for families with lots of Lego lovers!

 

Got a Minecraft-playin’, marshmallow-lovin’ geekling? Then grab a package of these sweets!

Fan Girl Friday Marshmallow Creepers

Each box has four fluffy marshmallow Creepers ready to be devoured!

 

Got a family member who is trying to watch their weight and has specifically said, “NO. CHOCOLATE. BUNNIES.”? Don’t worry! I’ve got something for them as well!

Fan Girl Friday Chocolate Bunny Plush

This chocolate bunny plush has all the festive-ness and nostalgia of your childhood Easters but without the calories! Woo!

 

Need something to get your hubs who daydreams about the “good ole days”? (And by “good ole days” I mean like, 1997). Yep, I’ve got something for him, too!

Fan Girl Friday Coloring Book

The Colour Me Good: 90’s coloring book is full of 90’s nostalgia sure to make you say, “This Easter basket is so fresh!”

Happy Friday, y’all! With the impending arrival of Huff the Babe, I’ve been slacking a lot on my bog-writing duties. But, I couldn’t let another week go by without sharing some awesomely geeky delights for you!

 

Even though its barely March, I’m already thinking ahead to Mother’s Day. I’m thinking I need to tell Huff the Hubs that my Littles need to get this for their momma:

Love you to the moon and back necklace

Isn’t it so cute?! Perpetual Kid really knows the way to a momma’s heart!

 

Around this house, there are about five things that Huff the Tot absolutely loves. And one of those things is Pete the Cat! So imagine my delight when I read that Pete will be starring in his very own show!

The release date is still TBA, but the creator of Phineas and Ferb has already been named as the show’s director! P and F is a hilarious show, so hopefully Pete will be a great one as well!

 

I’ve got a long list of books to read on Goodreads that hasn’t really been touched in the past 6 months. Because, toddler. And now, one of my “Books to Read” is about to be made into a movie! Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children has always piqued my interest, and seeing that Tim Burton is set to direct the film adaptation, I’m feeling the need to read this book!

Here is a brief synopsis from IMBD: “When a teen (Asa Butterfield) visits a magical place known as Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children, he learns that his new friends have special powers and powerful enemies.” The film comes out September 30th so I better get to reading!

 

Easter is only three weeks away! Can you believe it?! It seems like yesterday we were decorating the Christmas tree! I love the tradition of Easter baskets and I’m REALLY hoping I get one of these in mine:

Benedict Cumberbatch Chocolate

Its a chocolate Cumberbunny! A chocolatier over in Europe has crafted these Sherlockian sweets just in time for Easter! They’re around $70, so they’d better taste as good as they look!

 

Egg Hunt!

As I woke up this morning in a sea of Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg wrappers and wiped the Peeps sugar dust from my cheek, I realized I didn’t participate or watch an Easter egg hunt at all this weekend! My kid is only 7 months old, so an actual egg hunt would be more like me trying to balance a baby, a camera, and a basket while simultaneously looking at the ground, making sure I don’t step on any hard-boiled eggs. In other words: it would’ve been a disaster. But still, I was sad I didn’t partake in this Easter tradition.

So I went on a different kind of Easter Egg hunt–a virtual egg hunt!

Thanks to Doctor Whowe know Easter Eggs (hidden messages/symbols) can be found in just about any kind of entertainment.

This first video has all kinds of video games from the 70’s to now!

 

This video is more for the hardcore Marvel comic book lovers, but its still super interesting! (I never caught the fact that Stark is wearing a Black Sabbath tee, seeing as how one of Sabbath’s biggest hits was titled Iron Man.)

 

You know I couldn’t do a blog about Easter Eggs without highlighting the KING of EE’s–Pixar!

(This video is in Spanish, lo siento if you don’t know how to habla Español. I understand enough to know that at the 10-minute mark, the narrator says that the number on the dial on the Monster’s Inc. practice scare room is actually the phone number for Pixar HQ! ¡Que fantastico!)

 

See any eggs you’ve never seen before? Know of any not listed?

Happy Good Friday!

I’ve got some egg-cellent geeky goodies to kick off your Easter weekend!

Need a little something (besides gobs and gobs of candy) to stuff in your sweetie’s Easter basket? Check out these glow-in-the-dark soaps!

Kids needing some new summer gear? They’ll be singing: “My mommy’s awesome!” if you score them one of these tees from ThinkGeek!

Everything is awesome tee

 

Who knew that our favorite rouge space captain was also a phenomenal nail artist? Nathan Fillion stopped by Conan to discuss his pedicure prowess:

 

And finally, need some egg-spiration for dyeing egss this weekend? Look no further than blog, Between the Pages! They’ve got some nerdy notions that will make your Easter extra geeky:

Try It Wednesday

Man, oh, man! Am I glad that Tuesday is over with! That root canal was brutal. I have officially come out of my Novocain-induced haze and I am feeling ALIVE today! Woo!

Since I didn’t have a Try It for you yesterday, I thought I’d show you what I’ve been cookin’ up (literally) just in time for your Easter Sunday get-together!

Its called “Bunny Bait” and it is AWESOME! It reminds me of the party mix I made last fall, but less cavity-inducing-sweet and a better blend of salty and sweet!

Here’s what you need:

photo 1

~2 cups pretzels sticks

~2 cups Rice Chex®

~1 cup M&M’s®

~Almond Bark (or white chocolate baking chips)

~I bag (popped) natural popcorn

 

Grab a cookie sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Then, pour the pretzels and cereal (be sure to mix them up good) then add the popcorn:

 

Already a great snack!

Then, melt the almond bark (or chips) in the microwave, stir, and pour over the ingredients on the cookie sheet:

Sure did lick the bowl of almond bark after this pic was taken!

Fold the ingredients so the almond bark covers the pretzels, cereal, and popcorn evenly. Let the mixture dry to a sticky consistency. Then add in the candies and mix some more. That’s it! you’re done!

"Bunny Bait"? More like "Blogger's Bait!"

“Bunny Bait”? More like “Blogger’s Bait!”

 

This was so. freaking. good. And super easy! This took me maybe 10 minutes to put together (not including the cooling time). This would be a great treat to make with the kiddos!

{We had an “Easter Potluck” on Monday (basically just an excuse for us to gorge on bunny-shaped treats) and TWO of us made this! We made quick work of both!}

 

Happy Good Friday!

“It was the day of Preparation, and the Sabbath was beginning.” Luke 23:54

 

Hello everyone!

Typically on Fridays I do Fan Girl Friday, but since today is Good Friday, I thought I do a little something different.

I posted this on my Facebook page, but its just too good not to share.

“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:17

May you and yours have a blessed Easter!
