Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background1

Happy Friday, all! Am I the only one that woke up suddenly on Wednesday morning and thought, “HOLY CRAP, FATHER’S DAY IS THIS SUNDAY?!”

Have no fear! I’ve got a list of awesome gifts you can snag for your dad, grandpa, or hubs!

 

Is your dad a handy guy but never seems to have a pen? Check out these awesome writing tools (see what I did there?) from Think Geek!

Writing Tools

This 4-pack of pens shaped like a crowbar, saw, pliers, and boxcutter are great for the DIY dad!

 

Sometimes its hard for a guy to find a lunchbox that fits his needs as well as looks cool. Perpetual Kid has JUST the thing!

This toolbox-inspired cooler holds a 12-pack of Dad’s favorite beverage and keeps them cold for HOURS! Your pops can spend a day out on the lake fishing without ever having to go back to shore! #DadWin

 

Is your dad the type who touts Ron Swanson as his spirit animal? If so, he needs a pair of these:

I actually might get a pair to flash at those pesky, incessant kiosk workers at the mall!

 

Got a geek dad that also likes to build–maybe an AT-AT playhouse for the kiddos? He’ll need an awesome tape measure to get that walker built!

Exclusively from Think Geek, this R2D2 tape measure cannot be found at your local Home Depot! Snag one while you can!

 

Happy Fangirling and Happy Father’s Day!

 

Happy Birthday, Dad! (Or, reasons why my dad is cooler than yours)

Today is my dad’s birthday! It may be the pregnant brain, but I honestly can’t remember how old he is. I’ll just say he’s 30 again. That usually makes people feel good.

I’m just going to say it right now: my dad is awesome. If you think your dad is awesome, I’m sorry…after reading this post, he will pale in comparison. Don’t believe me? No worries; I’ve got a list prepared!

 

1. He was an ADORABLE kid.

Look at those freckles. I may die of the cuteness.

Happy Birthday, Daddy! You are, hands down, the best dad ever. Thanks for giving me your eyes, your sense of humor, and your taste of music. But most of all, thank you for loving me and just being awesome.
