Happy Friday, peeps! Let me tell ya, I don’t know if I have ever felt so ready for the weekend. This week has been insane. Huff the Tot had the stomach bug and this momma’s been scrubbing poo off the carpet for several days. I’m SO ready for Mother’s Day so I can kick back and relax!

Do I note a look of panic in your eyes? Did you forget this weekend is Mother’s Day?! Don’t worry! I’ve got your Mother’s Day gift guide for every type of mom!

 

For the mom who exudes rainbows and sparkles and also likes to power walk at the mall, grab her a pair of these unicorn sneakers from Think Geek!

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Background

 

Its official: we’re halfway through January. And, already so much has happened! I couldn’t bring myself to write a blog post yesterday because I was so torn up about the passing of Alan Rickman. Though I bleed the red and gold of Gryffindor House, I think we can all say that, right now, we’re all Slytherins.

The passing of such a great actor and the man we’ve all come to love as he portrayed one of the most misunderstood characters in the HP universe, has really left a hole in so many people’s hearts.

Yesterday, at Harry Potter World in Florida, fans showed their grief in beautiful ways. A large group banded in front of the Hogwarts ride, wands held high.

And inside, a single lily was placed outside of Snape’s potion’s classroom:

Rest in peace, Alan. We will always remember you.

 

Now, I’d like to switch gears and show you some delightfully dorky deals I’ve found to brighten your mood!

Over at The Geeky Hostess, there’s not only recipes but there’s also one-of-a-kind finds sure to bring a smile to your face! Like this ah-may-zing three-pack of fandom teas!

Geeky-Hostess-Tea-Combo HP Firefly Doctor Who

The 3-pack includes Mechanic’s Blend (Firefly), Doctor’s Blend (Doctor Who), and Lion’s Blend (Gryffindor/Harry Potter)! I’m a part of all three fandoms so this is PERF for me! (Hint, hint, Huff the Hubs!)

 

Huff the Tot hasn’t worn bibs in a loooooong time (though, she–and I–probably should!). But soon, we’ll be adding to our brood and we’ll need to dig those things out of storage. But, I think I may buy a few of these, just to keep those meal time messes humorous:

Travelling Sideshow Bibs

These silly sideshow bibs not only protect the kiddo from messes, but also help you have pictures that will no doubt embarrass them in the future! Its a win-win! Ha!

 

Even though I work from home, I know how it can be working in an office. Some days, you just do NOT want to make small talk with people. And, there’s really no way to let people know this without coming off as a jerk. So let your mug do the talking for you!

Mixed Messages Mug

This mug from Fred Flare comes with re-positionable letters so you can let your coworkers know when you’ve finally had enough coffee to make it through 10 minutes of chit-chat!

How cute is this Star Wars-meets-utensils-mug from Perpetual Kid?

This would make a great gift for the Jedi in your life and, at $11.99, it won’t break the bank!

 

Speaking of the greatest trilogy known to man (I refuse to acknowledge Episodes 1-3. They are crap, sir.), make your toast a little more dark (see what I did there?) thanks to Think Geek!

vader toaster

Seriously, how fantabulous is this toaster?! Not only is it shaped like Vader’s helmet, but it actually toasts the words “Star Wars” on your bread (or waffles…or Toaster Strudel®).

 

Here at THP, we’re all about nerd culture, so when I saw this, I did the flailiest of Kermit arm flails!

geek art book

This book highlights artists and their work in the world of video games, movies, comic books, and television shows! It’s like Nerd-Vana!

 

I really like Origami Owl. I think that their stuff is super cute, but, I’m bummed that they don’t have nerdy jewelry/charms. Enter Etsy shop WonderlandContraband! Just check out these adorable charms:

Its Bill Nye the Science Guy!

If you’re like me, you basically carry everything you own in about 2 or 3 bags wherever you go. Luckily, Mod Cloth has an oversized bag that will not only carry all your stuff, but also explain how you feel about it:

My thoughts exactly.

This bag isn’t just hilarious, it also does a lot of good! The makers of this product, Wild & Wolf, support the organization WaterAid, which helps to provide clean drinking water to people around the world! How awesome is that?!

 

Have a great weekend, peeps!

 

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, kids!

 

If you’re one of the lucky 200,000 attendees at Comic Con today, I envy you. Even though you’re probably in a crowded room with people who haven’t showered in days, your afternoon will be filled with panels, free swag, and waiting in line for hours on end.

 

If you’re like me and sitting at home wishing you were able to sit in the same room as Chris Hemsworth Thor, we can cry on each other’s shoulders…OR we can look at all the awesomely geeky things I’ve found on the interwebs today!

 

Yes, let’s do that. We don’t want our mascara to run.

 

In Oklahoma, we don’t have beaches (well, I guess we do at the lake…but I don’t go to the lake; I don’t like swimming in places that aren’t infused with chlorine) but we sure do have swimming pools! And with the heat that’s cranking up over the south and east, we could use a dip in our cement ponds.

 

What better way to dry yourself off from an afternoon of Marco Polo than with this beach towel from Think Geek:

Tanning with nostalgia

Remember the days of pouring your bucket of Legos on the living room floor and building an entire city? Perhaps you named it Jessie-opolis or Jessville. No? Just me? Moving on… then remember how your siblings would come through and trash your city. You’d sit in the corner and cry until you heard the piercing scream of someone stepping on a lone Lego. Ah, sweet justice. You don’t have to worry about hurting your Hobbit feet with these bricks, though:

Lego fun without the foot-crushing pain.

Miss the days of NES before things got fancy? Me too. We can relive our childhood as we pour our morning cup of Joe and lament the fact that now we’re adults with things like jobs and mortgages with this awesome Tetris mug:

Fill your mug to the brim, but don’t let the cubes get too high!

And finally, if you’re in need of geeky gear, look no further than Elf Sacks! Check out all of these nerdy accessories:

I’m in desperate need of that Mario Ghost charm!

Fan Girl Thursday

Happy Thursday, fan peeps!

I’ve got something planned for tomorrow, so you’re getting your weekly does of fandom a little early! And OMG, I’ve got TONS to share with you!

Think Geek is going to be getting A LOT of money from me very soon. Check out this Weeble-inspired mug! It suctions to the table (or wherever you place it), it weebles, it wobbles, but it won’t fall down (or spill!).

Finally, a mug that can hold up to the likes of Messy Jessie.

Are you a total film geek? Then TG has the lounge-gear for you! Look at these adorable movie-inspired pillows:

Just don't eat them!

I cannot wait for my little Hermione to get here. I’ll teach her so many things: the art of sarcasm, the proper way to deliver one-liners, and oh yes…the awesomeness that is Grumpy Cat:

Grumpy Baby.

Grumpy Baby.

 

Bless me hobbit feet! Have you seen the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug?! I literally squealed out loud and hopped around like a dwarf that just found the Arkenstone.

 

And speaking of The Hobbit, check out this awesome hobbit-themed party I saw on Epbot:

No admittance. Except on party business.
