Fan Girl Friday!

Doesn’t it feel like we were just here seven days ago? I guess that’s the thing about Fridays; they’re kind of a weekly thing! And what better way to celebrate Friday and all of its glory than with geeky goodies for everyone?

Got a mighty girl in your midst that needs a heroine she can emulate (besides her amazing mum, of course) while eating her crackers and drinking juice? Then look no further than this awesome dinner set from Perpetual Kid!

WOnder Woman Kids Set

 

This BPA-free, microwave-safe set comes with a cup, bowl, and plate for your little crime-fighter!

 

And, if Momma needs to feel a bit more WONDERful (see what I did there?) then pick up one of these from Shop Post!

Wonderwoman workoubottle

Stay hydrated, look fab, and burn some serious calories with this Wonder Woman water bottle, complete with exercises printed on the bottle to keep your bod in Amazonian-shape!

 

Y’all, I have FINALLY gotten caught up on Once Upon a Time, and holy cow! So much is going on in the town of Storybrooke! AND, so much is going on HERE with our favorite cast! At Comic Con, it was revealed that our OUAT characters are getting a Vinyl Pop makeover!

OUAT Vinyl Pop

 

Premiering on August 15th, the show will talk all things Who! According to David Tennant News, “…they’ll revisit eight of the most popular Doctor Who episodes of the past ten years of Doctor Who’s modern era…there will be never-before-seen interviews with the cast and creators. There will also be fun new segments, trivia, fan-generated content and tons of Comic-Con footage.” SQUEEEEE!
Summer heat got you locked up inside but the neighborhood kids all up in your lawn? Don’t go “Gran Torino” yet. Just pick up one of these bad boys and enemies (and youths) will stay off your grass:
Game of Gnomes
This deadly King of Gnomes takes what he wants and listens to no one. Which is why his throne is made up of garden rakes and spades he’s lifted from his enemies cold, marble hands. Though he may only be 10 inches tall, he can strike fear into the hearts of gnomes everywhere. And possibly neighborhood cats.

Fan Girl Friday

This has been a KA-RAZEE week! I’m soooo glad its nearly done!

Even though I’ve been insanely busy, I found the time to round up some squee-worthy finds for boys and girls of every fandom!

If you’re like Huff the Hubs, then you are REALLY going to enjoy this first item. This month marks the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters movie! I can’t believe its been 30 years! Movie theaters all around the nation are playing the flick for a limited time, so if you were too young to enjoy it on the silver screen when it first came out, good news! Plus, we’re seeing a plethora of memorabilia featuring our favorite poltergeist-fighting team! Like these a-dork-able vinyl figurines from Quantum Mechanix!

I ain't afraid of no ghost!

My little Hermione (or, as one friend referred to her: Huff the Babes) turned one this week! Can you believe it?! Seems like only yesterday I was complaining about false labor pains! I’ve already done her birthday shopping for her party tomorrow, but I think I may need to get these as an extra gift:

Bathroom humor is the best humor.

Bathroom humor is the best humor.

These aren’t your typical “A is apple” flash cards. These cards buck the norm and have hilarious cards like, “F is for fart” and “B is for booger”. Kids are gonna learn this stuff anyway, right?

 

If you’d rather keep it clean, but still have a geeky-good time, grab a deck of these Princess Bride cards from The Albino Dragon!

Royal Flush?! Inconceivable!

Royal Flush?! Inconceivable!

There are three exclusive sets to choose from, too!

 

You guys, I’ve got some awesome TV news about some of our favorite shows!

If you’re like me and totally waiting on pins and needles and for the season premiere of Once Upon A Time to see Elsa and Anna in action, then get ready to squeal with delight! This week the producers over at OUAT threw us a bone with an exclusive look at the girls in action! Watch:

AHHHH!!! September 28th cannot get here fast enough!

 

How excited were you when Sherlock won THREE Emmy’s last week?! Wasn’t that awesome?! I was so proud of my favorite boys across the pond! My glee was short-lived, however, after I read a recent interview with Steven Moffat. When asked about the new season of the show, here’s what Steven had to say: “We have a plan to top it [season three]. And I do think our plan is devastating. We’ve practically reduced our cast to tears telling them the plan … we’re probably more excited that we’ve ever been about Sherlock.”

Don't cry, dear.

Don’t cry, dear.

WHAT?! What does this mean?! Is our favorite sleuth going to be really dead this time? Is Watson? Will Molly’s sweater collection burn in a terrible fire? The suspense is killing me!

 

 

Fan Girl Friday

I know I can’t be the only one who is super excited about seeing our favorite Frozen characters on Once Upon A Time this fall. Am I right? The show leaked a photo of the snowy sisters on their Facebook page this week! We’ve seen Elsa but now we get to see little sis Anna as well:

Have a great weekend, peeps!

I Love My TV…All My Friends Live There

I am so glad its fall.

The leaves are changing; the house fills with the spicy aroma of pumpkin-filled treats; and best of all, MY TV SHOWS ARE BACK!

Yes, its the time of year when the magical black box in my living lets me have a fly-on-the-wall view into the lives of my favorite fictional friends. I am so excited for this new season. And even though some have already begun, I’ll give you a run-down on what will be showing in the Huffman Home this fall:

1. How I Met Your Mother

Teddy Westside and the Gang.

I honestly hope this is the last season. After a seventh season of Ted still pining after Robin and Barney still womanizing, and still not GETTING TO SEE THE FREAKING MOTHER, I was about ready to call it quits. But those clever producers hooked me when I heard through the blogosphere that next season will most likely be the final season. Now I feel like I have to see it all the way through. It’d be like me eating almost all the Pringles, but still having three left in the can… you can’t just stop. Eat the whole thing!

2. Once Upon A Time

Oh snap! She got a sword! It just got real.

I was a little skeptical about how this show could keep going after the main problem of the first season was resolved in the season finale. At first I was like, “Oh, well that was a nice movie that lasted for six months.” But, when I watched the season premiere last week, I was excited to see that the magical mystery tour of Storybrooke was just beginning! I’ve heard that many more favorite fairy tale characters are going to join the cast (Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, Captain Hook) and I can’t wait to see how the writers put a new spin on the classics!

3. The Vampire Diaries

She’s gets TWO Salvatores AND has hair that pretty?! Not fair.

After last season’s cliffhanger (at which point I said, “OMG, finally!”) I was counting down the days until October 11th! I love this show so much. Not necessarily because of the whole vampire thing (the are so 2010) but because the season starting will bring even more shirtless Ian Somerholder into my life. And I think everyone could use a little more of that.

4. The Big Bang Theory

Achk, mohck! (I said no Klingon, Sheldon!)

Who didn’t shed a tear when Howard and Bernadette got married last season? I mean, this little creepy candy-coated engineer finally got the woman of his dreams (and it wasn’t Katee Sackhoff). Now that Bernie and Howie (and his mother) are riding off into the sunset, where does this leave poor little Raj? And what about Penny and Leonard? I swear, if they break up again, I will go to L.A. myself and kick Chuck Lorre in the molecules. He could, however, redeem himself by having Amy and Sheldon make out. Come on, Chuck, Amy needs some sugar.

5. Doctor Who

Bowties are cool.

Sadly, the season for Doctor Who has already come and gone just like the Ponds. (Sidebar: I’m going to miss the Ponds. Not necessarily because of Amy, but because of Rory. He really was the epitome of the sweet boy next door.) Those Brits really like to tease us as much as they can by whetting our appetites for these shows (a la Sherlock) and then taking them away from us for months on end. Le sigh. I’m already counting down the days to the Christmas Special.

What about you? What fall shows are you looking forward to the most?
