Happy Friday, geeklings! Its the first Fan Girl Friday of the year and I’ve got gobs of geekery to make you smile! Let’s get right to it, mmmkay?

 

I know a lot of people have made resolutions to get fit and go to the gym. Why not rep your geekiness while doing squats with this awesome line of Harry Potter activewear from BlackMilk Clothing!

 

The line includes: active dresses, leggings, racerback tanks, sweatshirts, and shorts! Farewell, Christmas money!

 

I REALLY want to go to Comic Con this year–I guess you could say its one of my “resolutions”. And I’m hoping to run into the awesome folks from CosAbility! They’re a group of folks that help fellow nerds with different abilities be able to cosplay their favorite characters! Check out this video!

 

Have y’all seen The Last Jedi yet? NO?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Sigh… If you need something to fill the Death Star-shaped void in your heart, this next story will do the trick! New mom Becs Reed from Australia decided she needed a nursery out of this world for her little padawan, Vegas-Jack! Just look at this baby girl’s room!

Um, can she come decorate my house?! Click here for more pics!

 

Ever since October, I’ve been obsessed with a new show, Riverdale. Granted, its in its second season so its not really “new” per-se, but its new to me! Anyhow, as I was scrolling through Facebook I came across this hilarious parody by the uber-hilarious Jimmy Fallon and COULD. NOT. STOP. LAUGHING.

Oh, Jimmy, you slay me!

 

Happy fangirling!

Nursery Reveal!

Its finally happened people! The DAY has arrived! No, not the day I went into labor, the day Hermione’s nursery is complete!

I’m not going to lie, I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be done in time for our little padawan. But, thanks to my Pops taking a day off work (we’re very spoiled) everything is finished! So without further ado, I give you: Hermione’s Nursery Tour (the music that goes along with the video got blocked–freakin’ copyright Nazis–so before you watch, cue this up and play it along with it!):

Awesome right?!

Yeah, my dad is basically the greatest handyman/builder ever (take THAT, Ty Pennington!). He made SO many original pieces for Hermione’s room! I. LOVE. THEM. ALL.

I mean, look at this stuff!

"You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"

“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?”

Did you notice the sconces are actually Vader's face?!

Best. Nightlight. EVER.

Best. Nightlight. EVER.

Seriously. This kid is destined for greatness.

We trapped that Wompa ourselves.

I cannot wait to bring my little girl home to such an amazing nursery! Thanks, Dad for all your hard work! (And thanks Sam for the video!)

A Sneak Peak…

So, some people know what we’re doing Hermione’s nursery in. Others don’t.

I’m going to do a grand reveal when the nursery is done, but I wanted to give you all a little sneak peak into our little one’s room.

Drumroll please…….

"Echo station 3-T-8, we have spotted Imperial walkers."

“Echo station 3-T-8, we have spotted Imperial walkers.”

 

Oh yes, that’s right. Her nursery will be a Star Wars  theme!

I cannot wait to show pictures and video from this nursery. My dad has been working hard, creating and assembling one-of-a-kind pieces for our little padawan. He’s done such an amazing job that I know he’ll be getting orders for custom-made Jedi gear in the near future!

Bad Nursery Ideas

Today, Huff the Hubs and I got to hear Baby H’s heartbeat for the first time. It. Was. Awesome.

Hearing that made it all so real. I feel like I have so much to do! The biggest challenge? Trying to figure out how to decorate the nursery. I Googled: “Nursery Ideas”. I found some good ideas and some not-so-good ideas.

 

For example:

If Marilyn Manson were to have a child, I’m fairly certain this would be in the little devil’s nursery:

They see me rollin', they hatin'...

They see me rollin’, they hatin’…

 

I know what you’re thinking: Nothing can be worse than that! Just wait.

 

Personally, I don’t think Baby H needs some fancy-schmancy crib that can only be used until he/she is two. However, I think we could spring for something a little better than this:

"When I said I wish I was The Little Mermaid, this isn't what I had in mind."

“When I said I wish I was The Little Mermaid, this isn’t what I had in mind.”

 

 

I guess cribs don’t really matter as much as other things, like car seat and strollers. After all, you have to keep your child’s safety in mind:

Kids always want to play with the box.

Kids always want to play with the box.

 

I guess one of my biggest fears–aside from a hideous nursery–is that I won’t be able to get the hang of parenting. But I guess its a learn-on-the-job type of thing, huh?

Are these eco-diapers?

Are these eco-diapers?

 

Eh, I guess all parents screw their kids up in some way….
