Happy Friday, y’all!

Today has been a CRAZY day! Huff the Hubs got his wisdom teeth pulled this morning and I’ve been taking care of him while also scouring the internet for awesomely nerdy nifties for YOU! (I’ve also been researching how much it will cost us to move because I saw a mouse in our kitchen this morning and I do NOT want to live here anymore!)


Remember how awesome it was when Johnny Depp was the Madhatter in Alice in Wonderland? And how we all wished we could see him reprise his role? Well pine no longer, lovelies! Our wishes have come true! The sequel to Alice in WonderlandAlice Through The Looking Glass, is set to hit theaters next May! AND, its awesome trailer (complete with Alan Rickman voice over) is out!


And speaking of deep-voiced Brits, have y’all seen the  latest trailer for Sherlock‘s Christmas special?! NO?! Well, here it is!

Sidebar: When I see Holmes and Watson dressed like that, all I can think of is The Great Mouse Detective, ha ha!


Sadly, I don’t have a trailer for this last find, BUT I do have pictures and insider info! The latest film from the wizarding world of JK Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, officially has a logo AND a plot!

Fan Girl Friday Fantastic Beasts Eddie

The film, starring Eddie Redmayne, will be full of the magical world we all know and love, but with some twists. According to Entertainment Weekly:

“Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?). Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous … get out of their case.”

Happy Friday, y’all! Today is trailermania on The Huffman Post! I’ve got awesome sneak peeks on much-anticipated movies!

First up, we’ve got The Scorch Trials the second in The Maze Runner series. And, bonus, it opens in theaters today!


Disney is releasing a live-action retelling of their classic The Jungle Book! And by the looks of the trailer, we will not be disappointed, people!


I know many of y’all were none too happy about the ending to the Divergent series, but maybe you’ll be appeased when you watch the newest trailer for the film!


And, finally, the last installment of the Hunger Games saga wraps up this November. When I saw this trailer, titled For Prim, I seriously got goosebumps. Watch and try not to cry!


What’d you think? Have you seen any new trailers that YOU can’t wait to watch in theaters? Share in the comments below!


Scorch Trials

Iiiiiiiiiittttttttttttt’s Friday! Time to pour some iced tea, put up your feet, and binge-watch some Outlander! But before you start your chillaxing weekend, take a gander at theses geeky goodies!

Its still blazing hot in Oklahoma, but it’ll be sweater weather before you know it! And what better way to stay warm—while looking cool—than with these Star Trek: The Next Generation cardigans?!

Star Trek Cardigans

Exclusively from Think Geek, these unisex, button-up beauties come in three colors: Sciences Blue, Commander Red, and Operations Gold!

Got a tiny tike that is not feeling the whole “potty-training” thing? Have no fear, there’s help from the smartest Vulcan around!

Potty Training is Logical

This book, Pooping is Logical, is sadly not out in stores yet, but that’s where WE come in! The authors, Gary and Leah Whitta, need our help in flooding the powers that be to give them official Star Trek licensing! I know we can do it! If we can get Roswell and Chuck back on the air for a farewell season, then nerd parents can surely see this book hit the shelves and, hopefully, help them not go crazy when potty training their little Vulcan! Click here for more info!

If you’re like me (and, well, most of America) you’re constantly on your phone. Which equals a dying battery. Which equals a Darth-like moment of screaming, “NOOOOOO!!!” when you see your screen go black. Don’t worry; the dark-helmeted villain is here to help!

Darth Vader USB car charger

This Vader USB car charger is sure to keep your phone or device charged and ready to go so you can beat your high score of Flappy Bird while waiting for your order in the drive-thru!

There are so many awesome movies coming out soon and, thankfully, many of them are in the Marvel universe! I just can’t get enough of those heroes. A new trailer has hit the web, and I can honestly say I know NOTHING about this character. I know, I need my Geek Card revoked. Have y’all seen the Deadpool trailer? It looks awesome! Check it out:

(Update: A follower of the blog let me know that the trailer has A LOT of NSFW language. To see the cleaner trailer, click here. For some reason, IMDB won’t let you embed their trailers. Womp, womp.)

Happy fangirling!

NYC Fashion Week is happening and what better way to get in on the fun than by checking out come geek couture! PopSugar has found the best–and geekiest—looks strutting down the runway!

geek gowns

I personally LURVE the “Mystic” gown and the “Regina” from Once Upon a Time!


Big news, Whovians! The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Well, sort of. The PopVinyl figurines of our favorite Doctor(s), companions, and villains is about to hit the shelves!
vinyl doctors

You can pre-order yours now in the US or UK! I. CANNOT. WAIT.


Another sweet treat for those that travel in the Whoverse, An a-dork-able Etsy shop is selling Doctor Who cookie cutters! Look at all of the cute shapes!

There’s even a “Doctor Whooves” from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!


Looking for a great gift for the person who has everything? Then look no further than the Sharper Image! Send in a photo of your loved one and they’ll create a look-alike bobble head!

create your own bobble head

I’m seriously considering doing this for my brother-in-law (even though his birthday was yesterday!)


Who else is looking forward to Disney’s live action Cinderella, set to hit the big screen March 13th? Well, get ready to have the biggest of nerd squeals, people, because there is one more reason to freak out. Disney confirmed that there will be a—wait for—Frozen animated short before the film!

frozen fever

Its titled Frozen Fever and from the looks of the pictures, I’m assuming the story is about Anna’s birthday (given the big ‘Happy Birthday’ banner and all!) and the hilarity that ensues as the gang gets the celebration going!

Dirty Thirty Wrap-Up

So, as you know, I turned the big 3-0 last week! And, to lament celebrate the fact that I am now “over the hill”, I decided to do a 30 By 30 List. Last Thursday, I told you which items I had crossed off (in JUST the nick of time!) and which ones I had left. Now, to wrap this fun little venture up into a nice little bow, I’m going to do a review/critique of my year(s) in accomplishing my goals!


Most Favorite Goal:

Sew and wear a dress/skirt


This goal was tough. I’m no seamstress, and I was afraid of what I might make. But I actually really enjoyed learning about sewing! Plus, I got to spend a lot of one-on-one time with my mom which I don’t get much anymore.


Least Favorite Goal:

Watch all of AFI’s 100 Years, 100 Movies.


OMG. This was such a cumbersome goal. While watching some of the films on this list I thought: “Why in the world is this on here?! Its AWFUL!” Some of the movies were just downright painful to watch (Sophie’s Choice, A Clockwork Orange, Apocalypse Now) and others left me scratching my head thinking, “What just happened?”


Most Time-Consuming Goal:

Run a marathon.


If you want to spend your weekends waking up at the crack of dawn, running in freezing temps, and putting your body through all kinds of pain then, by all means, train for and run a marathon. I ran three times during the week and every single Saturday morning for almost five months. There were days I’d wake up before Huff the Hubs and Huff the Babe and not see them until lunchtime! It was tough!


Something I Will Never Attempt Again (Maybe):

Tie: Run a Marathon and Undertake a Big List (like AFI’s)


Why will I not run a marathon again? Perhaps you haven’t read this post. Read it. It explains EVERYTHING.

Also, if you’re considering making a 30 By 30, keep the goals small. Don’t say, “I want to cook through Julia Child’s entire cookbook” and count it as one goal. You will regret it. Trust me.


Something I’d Like to Do Again:

Have A(nother) Baby.

She's my glow.

I’ve been feeling the itch to have another wee one ever since Huff the Babe turned 1. Plus, she needs a little sibling. Just not yet!


Goal I’m Most Proud Of:

Tie: Run a Marathon and Pay Off All School Loan Debt.


Running a marathon is HARD. Not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Next to childbirth, it is the most difficult thing I have ever done.

When Huff the Hubs and I got married, we both brought in student loan debt. We wanted to be completely debt-free before we had a baby, and we met that goal! In a little over a year, HtH and I were able to pay off over $20K in debt! We were both so proud (and thankful)!


Goal I Didn’t Accomplish (And Wished I Had):

Tie: Get a Literary Agent and Buy a House.




I’m still working on finding an agent. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it happens at least before I turn 35! I told myself I’d try for a certain amount of time and, if it hadn’t happened yet, I’d assume it wasn’t meant to be and I’d throw in the towel. (Here’s hoping I hang on to that towel for a while!)

Don’t get me wrong, I am so incredibly grateful to my sister for letting Huff the Hubs, Huff the Babe, and I squat at her house. It’s helped us save for a down payment and has also helped her to have someone home to take care of her pup while she’s working on her Master’s. But still, I’m ready to have a house of my own. But, I know everything happens for a reason! There’s a reason we haven’t found one yet and I’ll just have to accept that and move on!



And with that, I promise to not post about my 30 By 30 Again. (Mostly because now its a 40 By 40–ha!)

It’s Friday, people! By this time next week we’ll all be waking up from our turkey comas and trying to scrape together bail money for that one aunt who punched a man for the last $1.99 DVD at the Black Friday sale. Ah, family.


But before you get frantic over family and food, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy all the geeky goodness I have to share!


You guys. Are you sitting down? If not, do it now. Are you sitting? Good. Lego recently announced six new sets coming to stores next year and three of them are from two of our favorite fandoms!

Oh yes, you heard that right! The Big Bang Theory AND Doctor Who will be getting their own Lego sets! I am seriously geeking out over here! I have already posted these bad boys on my Christmas 2015 list on Amazon!


Speaking of toys, you know I have a deep love for the girls’ line called GoldieBlox. They encourage young girls to get excited about engineering, physics, and other areas of science. While I sometimes think that their marketing may ruffle a few feathers (shamimg girls for liking princesses is sort of like shaming girls for not liking them, amiright?) I do think that their heart is in the right place by wanting to help the fields of math and science be more than a boys club. Here is their new ad:

What do you think? And if it looks familiar, here’s why.


This has been a great week for movie trailers! Especially from Disney! Check out two, all-new trailers from the House of Mouse:





And speaking of movies, I saw The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 last night and It. Was. AH-MAY-ZING! Seriously. I think this is the BEST one so far! The acting was great, the effects were so superb I fought back tears multiple times, and the sets totally blew what I had pictured out of the water! Even though I’ve read the book three times, my heart pounded, I covered my eyes, and hoped upon hope that things would work out (even though I knew the ending). Plus, J.Law’s rendition of The Hanging Tree was ON. POINT.
