Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Button

I have been so off my blogging game this week! But not to worry, my faithful followers, I’ve got some nerdy novelties that are sure to perk you right up!

 

I don’t really dress up that much. In fact, my idea of “dressing” up is switching out sweat pants for a pair of week-old dirty jeans and a t-shirt. But after seeing this skirt, I may rethink my style!

This awesome skirt from Her Universe is the PERFECT pick for any lightsaber-lovin’ lady that’s ready for a night out at the cantina with her scruffy-looking nerf herder!

 

And speaking of our favorite galaxy far, far away, show your nerd side with this tee from Fun Sports Gear!

 

Jedi Mom

Jedi moms really are much cooler than normal moms. Plus, we carry lightsabers and know how to handle bounty hunters.

 

I’m not much of a gamer. Well, I take that back. I can play Super Mario Brothers with the best of them! What better way to show my Nintendo pride than with this raglan tee from Think Geek?

This tee is actually a TG exclusive! The sleeves are decorated with question boxes, Mario-esque clouds and Nintendo controllers! What more could a plumber-lovin’ 80’s girl need?

 

They say a woman is the “queen of her castle”, now we can actually feel like it with this apron from Perpetual Kid!

How cute would you look stirring spaghetti sauce in this little number? Plus, if your family doesn’t like what you’ve cooked, you can always just tell them to “let it go”.

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

What a week it’s been! My head is STILL spinning from The Walking Dead mid-season finale and I’m having a minor life crisis because my 30th birthday is next week. Needless to say, I need some happy to distract me from the gloom and doom going on right now. So let’s just jump right in, mmkay?

 

I don’t know about you, but I have been desperately missing my peeps from Pawnee, Indiana! I mean, why would they leave us with such an amazing season finale this spring and then just leave us hanging all summer and fall?

parks and rec

Thankfully, the finale season of Parks and Rec FINALLY has a start date—and sadly, an end date. Looks like Leslie Knope will be back on January 13th! NBC will show back-to-back episodes all the way up to the last episode….on February 24th! Yep, that’s all we get—a freaking month. They better make it a good one!

 

Yet another show that I absolutely cannot wait to see return is Downton Abbey. And, this week we got to see a sneak peek of this season, complete with cameo by America’s favorite bachelor groom, George Clooney!

EEEEEEEEE! I. CANNOT. WAIT. If you need a little Downton to deck your halls, check out the PBS website for some adorable ornaments!

 

 

As the year winds down, we start to take a look back at what 2014 has brought us. Thanks to DJ Earworm, we can hear (and see) the best jams of the year! Check it out:

 

I’ve been a bad Doctor Who fan this season. I haven’t really been keeping up with it. Sigh. It took everything I had to accept Matt Smith as the new Doctor, so when I saw the first two episodes with Peter Capaldi…I don’t know…I just couldn’t. My hearts still belong to Ten. And, thanks to toy makers in the UK, I never have to let go of him!

This 1:6 scale action figure of The Doctor comes with jacket, Converse, and of course, a great head of hair!

 

 

Get ready, Frozen fans, Disney World is about to get a whole lot cooler! (See what I did there?) DW just announced that they will be creating a brand new ride for Epcot Center all about the sisters from Arendelle!

frozen disney

They will have to make some adjustments in the Norway section of Epcot, i.e., they will have to tear down the iconic Maelstrom, which has some people up in arms. Come on, folks. It’s Disney World; there’s revamping all the time. Take a page from Elsa and just let it go.

Mommy Monday

Before I was blessed with Huff the Babe, I held myself to a certain standard. I behaved a certain way in public, making sure that I treated people with the same courtesies that I would like to receive.

 

I held open doors for the elderly, made sure that my friends and weren’t too raucous in restaurants, and gave people the typical “three feet of personal space”. And if people didn’t do the same for me, I got really, really irritated.

But now that I have my little Gryffindor, things that used to grate on my nerves don’t really bother me as much.

shrug

 

For example, before I gave birth I didn’t care for strangers. I wanted to just go to the store, get my stuff, and get out. No chit-chat, no funny quips.

 

Now, however, I’ll talk to just about anybody and anyone. Little old lady thinks my baby is cute? By all means, I will thank you graciously and tell you what features she gets from me, all about the 23-hour labor, 2 hours of pushing, and my episiotomy. I’ll also be sure to let you know that my baby is a lot more regular now that we’ve switch to oatmeal cereal instead of rice.

 

I’m telling you, I have no filter and I have no sense of personal space. A few weeks ago, Huff the Babe and I went out to dinner with my family. I mentioned that Hermione liked shredded cheese, so I reached over and grabbed cheese from my mom’s salad. I didn’t ask, I just reached into her bowl (while she was bringing a forkful of lettuce to her mouth) and gave it to the baby. It wasn’t until about 10 minutes later that I realized my faux pas.

oops

 

My sense of shame has also crumbled into non-existence. I’ve NEVER sang karaoke and I try not to hum too loud when my favorite Ace of Base song comes on at the grocery store. But when my little girl threw her hands up in the air inside Target and started saying, “Let it go!” how could I resist? I belted out that tune, Elsa-style and dropped the mic. Sure did get some weird glances from shoppers but the smile on her face was #totesworthit.

What about you? Have you seen changes in yourself since you’ve had kids? What kind?

Fan Girl Friday

Ah, Friday. Once again you grace us with your beautiful presence and boatloads of geeky gossip and fangirl fabulosity to get us through the last few hours of the grind!

Remember last summer when that weirdo-beardo statue of Colin Firth’s Mr. Darcy popped up in a lake in London, leaving many of scratching our heads and thinking, “Huh?” Well, our favorite sexy sleuth has done his own rendition of “Darcy-ing”, wet t-shirt and all! (Warning: this picture is very swoon-worthy. Try not to faint, ladies.)

"I love you, most ardently."

“I love you, most ardently.”

And he’s not just doing this so we can all bask in the glory of Benedict’s beauty. This is one of many shots taken for the “Give Up Clothes for Good” campaign, benefiting cancer research! Its a win-win!

 

In other crush-worthy-television-nerdy-boy news, the final season of How I Met Your Mother is going to be released on DVD in just 4 days! There’s going to be tons of bonus extras, including a MUCH better ending to the tale of Ted Mosby (but you can watch it before you buy it here) and we FINALLY get an answer to the question that’s been plaguing us since Season One: WHERE DID THE PINEAPPLE COME FROM?!

Seriously! We were told that all loose ends were going to be tied up but there’s was no reference to the pineapple incident at all in the season finale! That is, until now. Oh yes my friends, the mystery has been solved:

 

Comic Con 2015 tickets go on sale in TWO months, people! Hear that, Huff the Hubs? TWO. MONTHS. I think I need to start getting my cosplay outfits ready. Starting with this a-dork-able hoodie from Think Geek!

"Hey, puddin'!"

“Hey, puddin’!”

Isn’t it awesome?! I must has the precious!

 

Whenever I’m asked what my spirit animal is, its an easy answer: Grumpy Cat. I freaking love that feline! Even though she hates everything, I adore her (yeah, GC is totes a girl!). Which is why I am extremely excited that Lifetime is doing a movie about the kitty this winter. And the voice of the angsty cat? None other than Parks and Rec star, Aubrey Plaza! Isn’t that perfect?!

We hate all the same things.

We hate all the same things.

 

 

Do you realize that there are only 96 days until Christmas?! Let that sink in. And, if you’re like me, you know about half a dozen little girls who desperately want Frozen toys. If you’ve been to Target or Wal-Mart lately, you may have noticed that finding anything with Anna, Elsa, or Olaf’s face on it is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

But, according to The Huffington Post, Disney manufacturers WILL be able to provide dolls, action figures, and dress up outfits for your Frozen fan this holiday season! Disney claims they learned their lesson after what happened with The Little Mermaid. Evidently, “researchers” thought that little girls wouldn’t want to play with dolls with red hair (idiots) so they ordered basically ZERO dolls and/or memorabilia! They lost out on a ton of cashola and kids all over were forced to pretend to be Ariel in their bathtubs because there were zilch dolls!

 

All this talk about shopping and Christmas is getting me amped up for Black Friday! Maybe I should go look at my Black Friday prediction sites…

I know I can’t be the only one who is super excited about seeing our favorite Frozen characters on Once Upon A Time this fall. Am I right? The show leaked a photo of the snowy sisters on their Facebook page this week! We’ve seen Elsa but now we get to see little sis Anna as well:

 

Think she's looking at Kristoff?
