Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Marvel

 

Hey y’all! Its been a while since I’ve done an FGF, so I figured I’d make it a good one so you wouldn’t be *too* upset that you’ve missed out on so much nerdy awesomeness!

 

Get your passports and dress robes, people because I just heard that there is going to be a Harry Potter-themed cruise coming to England this year! *Cue the fangirl screams*

Barge Lady Cruises will be hosting a six-day trip down the River Thames making magical stops at locations used in or as inspiration for the Potter films! There’s even a stop at the home used as “4 Privet Drive”! *Packs bag, grabs wand, and waits for an owl to arrive with instructions on how to use the floo network to get to London*

 

And speaking of the spectacle-wearing boy wonder, check out these Hogwarts-inspired clutches from Think Geek!

The uniform-themed bags come in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw colors!

 

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’m sure many of you fellas out there are trying to think of that perfect gift for your gal. Let me give you some advice: flowers are lame. They only stick around for a while and then they die. You know what doesn’t fade? The absolute A-DORK-ABLE-NESS of this Star Wars plushie bouquet!

I mean, for reals, just LOOK at that Porg! And if a galaxy far, far away isn’t your lady’s “thing”, there’s many more to choose from including microbes, books,  and science-themed!

 

Sometimes its hard to start the day off in a good mood. Its tough getting out of bed on these cold, winter mornings. Make waking up easier with this unicorn pancake mold from Perpetual Kid!

Breakfast: the most important–and magical–meal of the day!

 

As I mentioned, V-Day is coming up FAST. And whether you give this as a gift for someone special or gift it to yourself, there’s going to be one happy chocolate-lover come February 14th!

This 36-piece chocolate gift set comes with a variety of chocolate infusions including: Baconluxious, Totally Tangy Mango, Orange-A-Go-Go, and Strawberry Waffle Wild! I may just have to buy one of these for myself!

 

Happy fangirling!

Ah, Friday. My second favorite “f” word. (What? I was thinking “fries”. What were YOU thinking?!) Enough chit chat, let’s dive right in to the nerdy nifties I’ve found this week!

I really thought Huff the Hubs and I had a pretty nerdy wedding. I mean, our cake toppers were Lego, we had a frickin’ TARDIS, and I walked down the aisle to Storybook Love from The Princess Bride. But this couple? Man, they put us to shame!

Cassie and Lewis Byrom of Manchester, UK totally hit the Snitch out of the pitch with their a-DORK-able Harry Potter-themed nuptials! Just check out these pics!

The bride and groom featured on their very own Wanted posters!

The groom’s boutonniere? Yeah, those are pages from Harry Potter!

The cake not only had house crests, but was adorned with a tribute to The Three Brothers and topped with Voldemort and Bellatrix Lego minifigs!

Every guest (130 of them!) were each given a handmade wand! I wish I would’ve been invited to this! For more pics, click here!

 

Keeping with the HP theme, I’ve found an awesome way to not only help you de-stress, but also find out once and for all which Hogwarts house you belong in! Etsy shop ScentD has these amazing surprise bath bombs that reveal your house colors when dropped in the tub!

Each bath bomb also includes a charm–either a lion for Griffyndor, a badger for Hufflepuff, a serpent for Slytherin, or bird for Ravenclaw! You can choose which house you want OR select “random” and be sorted! (They also have a charcoal bath bomb called “Sirius”!)

 

For the Potterhead that needs a magical manicure, NOVAPolish has what you need!

Seriously, how cute is that polish?! NOVA also has Totoro, Batman, and other themed polishes!

 

Let people know you mean business with this striking silver Lord Voldemort wand necklace from Soft Kitty Clothing:

Just, ya know, don’t go all “Avada Kedavra” on anyone, mmmkay?

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, peeps! I realized this week I haven’t done a Fan Girl Friday in TWO WEEKS! I know; bad, blogger! But I’ve found some geeky goodies and nerdy news to help you kick off your V-Day weekend!

 

A few weeks ago, I was out running errands and saw the COOLEST window cling! So when I got home, I immediately searched for it online and found it on Etsy!

Fan Girl Friday Hogwarts Honor Student

Seriously, how cute is this?! I need this for the Mom-mobile. I mean, my kid’s name is Hermione so its perfect, right?

 

And speaking of the magical world of HP, JoAnn’s Fabrics has recently acquired some new Potter prints!

Fan Girl Friday Harry Potter Fabric

AHH! Excuse me while I go spend an unholy amount of Sickles on this fabric…

 

You guys know I’m a HUGE fan of Friends. I quote it at least once a day and I’ve watched the entire series all the way through probably a dozen times. So when I saw this, I got all floopy!

Fan Girl Friday Friends Candle

There’s a Kickstarter campaign to help a candle maker start his business including a line of Friends inspired aromatherapy candles! The “Ross” is called “Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!” (totally fitting). I really hope the “Monica” is called “Monana”.

 

You know when you travel and you consider your favorite destination your second home? That’s how I feel about London. And I think I need to go back for a fourth time, because the one and only Sir Ian McKellen is going to be riding around a double decker!

Fan Girl Friday Sir Ian McKellen hosting bus tours of London

Yep, in celebration of the British Film Institute’s Shakespeare on Film program (which was started by McKellen) Gandalf himself will be serving as a tour guide, showing tourists filming locations from his film Richard III. According to Radio Times, the white wizard said:

“I always thought it might be fun to take a bus tour around the sites of Richard III. You would watch snippets of the film and then arrive at the actual location,” [McKellen] said. “I want to be the tour leader.”

Let’s pack our bags, people!

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

You’ve survived another workweek and I survived my first week back to work! (Technically I wasn’t at work since I work from home, but still…)

Even though I’ve been juggling work and Hermione, I’ve still found time to scour the interwebs to find some awesomely nerdy finds for you fangirls and boys!

Let do this!

Its officially fall, y’all. The high today in OKC was 54! And this weather means chilly nights! So grab a hot steaming cup of Madame Rosmerta’s hot cocoa and cuddle up with a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them while wearing this:

"Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?"

“Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?”

Represent your house while watching an HP marathon! There’s Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw to choose from! Magical powers not included.

 

Get ready to rock game night through all of space, cowboy! Check out the new Firefly game!

"You can't take the dice from me."

“You can’t take the dice from me.”

From what I understand, its a little bit of Firefly and a little bit of Settlers of Catan. Here’s the description on Amazon: “Players begin with a ship, and travel from planet to planet, hiring crew, purchasing ship upgrades, and picking up cargo to deliver (jobs) all in the form of cards.” Some of the cargo is illegal but the fun is not!

 

Working from home has its advantages: staying in my jammies, being able to have Netflix on in the background, and yes: spying on the neighbors. In our old building, there was a lot to watch/overhear (I wasn’t “snooping”. If you stand outside yelling at each other, you’ve suspended all rights to privacy. You’ve also given me the right to call the cops and watch from my peephole.) Our new building isn’t as exciting… I may need to get this notebook and just watch people at the park:

Don't mind me, I'm just reading a good book...

Don’t mind me, I’m just reading a good book…

 

If you know me, you know my humor is very juvenile. I can’t help it. Farts and poop are hilarious and if you don’t find them funny, you’re dead inside. So when I saw this video I CRACKED up. I leave you this Friday with a little bit of potty humor:

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, nerdlings!

We’ve made it through another week and its time to fangirl it up!

I’ve found some great things from my favorite sites, but I’ve also uncovered some AWESOME new places to get your geek on!

 

“When’s the costume parade?”

“There isn’t one.”

“This party is just going to suck.”

“You’re a choo choo train?”

“You’re a choo choo train?”

Don’t worry, friend, you’ll be able to win any and every costume contest this Halloween (if the judges are a bunch of nuon -lovin’ physicists) with Sheldon Cooper’s Doppler Effect costume!

 

My ten-year reunion was just a few weeks ago, and as much as I loved my high school experience, I can’t help but wish I went to another school. One with more magic and moving staircases. Plus, I’d be able to wear this great tee from ThinkGeek with pride!

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy, hoggy, warts, warts, teach us something please!

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy, hoggy, warts, warts, teach us something please!

 

Huff the Hubs and I went un-traditional when it came to Hermione’s nursery. And seeing as how we’re hoping to raise a genius, we’ll need to save our pennies to send her to college so she can support us in our old age. This bank, in my opinion, would be the best way to store our funds:

 

"I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money."

“I expect to be well paid. I’m in it for the money.”

 

Speaking of our spawn, whilst searching Pinterest, I found the CUTEST website for nerdbabies! Its called Geek-A-Bye-Baby and it is FULL of fandom for your family! Check out this custom-made Firefly bedding!

 

"I aim to misbehave."

“I aim to misbehave.”

There’s also stuff for Mommies and Daddies! I saw a TARDIS lovey… I think Hermione is going to get one for Christmas!

 

Before I bid adieu for the weekend, just in case you didn’t know…

Katniss is excited.
