Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone! If you’re as sad as I am to not be at San Diego Comic Con, turn that frown upside down! Just because we aren’t there doesn’t mean we can’t have all the scoop! I’ve got trailers, clips, and news to make you a little happier you’re not dealing with the “wet-wipe-bathing” crowds at SDCC!

Y’all, I was NEVER into anime or Japanese movies before I met Huff the Hubs. Now? He’s made a believer out of me! One of my FAVORITE Japanese films, Death Note, is coming to Netflix and I am SUPER excited! Check out the exclusive con clip!

 

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid was Rocko’s Modern Life and I am feeling all kinds of nostalgic because its being rebooted! And the trailer is FINALLY here!

 

And, of course, we can’t forget everyone’s favorite zombie hunters! The cast of The Walking Dead throws all kinds of crazy in SDCC’s trailer for the AMC show!

 

Technically, this last trailer debuted about a week ago at D23, but I am so freaking excited I HAVE to share with you! This is the first “teaser” (if you want to call it that; it has clips from the first film, not the sequel) of The Incredibles 2 which is set to premiere next June! SQUEEEE!

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, peeps! I’ve rounded up some nerdy nifties to get your weekend started right! And–added bonus–today’s FGF is chock full of 90’s nostalgia!

If you were like me in elementary school, you yearned for the days that the book fair came to town. Because then, you could buy up all the new Goosebumps books (especially those awesome “choose your own adventure” ones) so your weekends would be set. Ever wish you could be in that world? We’re one step closer with this:

The game, for 2-6 players, lets YOU be the monsters from R.L. Stine’s creepy books competing to make it to the end of Madison Street and evading the author himself!

 

Miss the good ole days before mortgages and water bills? The days when you dreamed about sipping Shasta on the beach with JTT? Bring those daydreams home with this whimsical pillow from Etsy shop Dirtsastudio:

Even if you didn’t get that mansion like the game promised, at least your living room will be awesome!

 

Anyone else excited for the reboot of Rocko’s Modern Life? I’m just desperate for a day-long binge of my fave Nickelodeon shows from the 90’s! In the meantime, I can grab these cute Vinyl Pops from Think Geek!

I mean, come on. Look at the adorable Tommy Pickles! Squeeeee!

 

And speaking of our favorite diapered dude, this Rugrats-inspired top from FreeBirdApparelUK is AMAZE-BALLS!

Just don’t be a total Angelica while you’re wearing it, mmmkay?

 

Happy fangirling!

Her’s Day Thursday

Y’all know that I am all about strong women and raising Huff the Tot to be a self-assured, hard-working, kind girl that turns into an amazing woman. This is why I try to find books and shows that highlight strong female characters. I am super excited because Nick Jr. just started a new show called Nella the Princess Knight!

 

nella

 

According to the Nickelodeon website, Nella “…isn’t your average princess, but she is a princess-knight — a hero unlike any who have come before her. Working with loyal knight Sir Garrett, his trusty steed Clod and glamorous unicorn Trinket, Nella breaks barriers, challenges expectations and fights for justice every time the group heads out on an adventure. No matter how tough of a challenge she faces, 8-year-old Nella always stays true to herself through her determination, power and courage. The preschool series features a social-emotional curriculum intended to foster relationship development and empower preschoolers to be courageous.”

I love this so much! I just wish we had cable so Huff the Tot could catch some of the episodes. (Come on, Netflix, help a momma out!) Just check out this teaser trailer:

 

The show debuted on February 6th and is on every morning at 9:00 a.m., CST!

Happy Friday, peeps! We’re one week closer to Thanksgiving, or as I like to call it, “Gorge Till Puke” Day! And to celebrate, I’ve rounded up some fantastically awesome finds for my fangirls and fanboys!

Y’all, when Nickelodeon announced that they were going to dedicate a channel solely to 90’s shows, I was ecstatic. Then, I saw this video from Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo!

*Cue the 90’s fangirl screams*

 

Huff the Hubs and I have been working on decorating our new home. Our style can be best described as: “Twelve-Year-Old-Left-Alone-In-A-Home-Decor-Store-With-Our-Parent’s-Credit-Card”. Case in point, I really, really, want this:

Fan GIrl Friday Potty Piano

This “Potty Piano” from Perpetual Kid is the best addition to our house! Seriously! Imagine having friends over and then, instead of hearing terrifyingly gross sounds coming from the loo, you hear a nice concerto! Or, you know, Three Blind Mice. Because that’s basically all I know, ha!

 

With Christmas approaching ever so steadily, I think I need to pick up a pack of these to drop under my sister’s Christmas tree! Its Author Paper Dolls!

Fan Girl Friday Author Paper Doll

Each pack comes with 16 different authors including Jane Austen, George Orwell, and Franz Kafka! This is a must for bibliophiles everywhere!

 

We all know that the holidays are awesome. Yes, we get to see family and friends, but most importantly, we get yummy treats that we don’t get throughout the rest of the year! Like my mom’s pumpkin bread! Seriously, y’all…This pumpkin bread is da bomb! The only thing I think that would bring it over the top would be this cake pan:

Fan Girl Friday Dragon Cake Pan

Seriously, how much more kick-a would Thanksgiving be if my mom rolled into my Grammy’s house with pumpkin bread baked in the shape of a dragon guarding its eggs?! If only we could make it breathe fire…

 

Happy fangirling!
