Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday New Background1

Happy Friday, all! Am I the only one that woke up suddenly on Wednesday morning and thought, “HOLY CRAP, FATHER’S DAY IS THIS SUNDAY?!”

giphy (1)

Have no fear! I’ve got a list of awesome gifts you can snag for your dad, grandpa, or hubs!

 

Is your dad a handy guy but never seems to have a pen? Check out these awesome writing tools (see what I did there?) from Think Geek!

Writing Tools

This 4-pack of pens shaped like a crowbar, saw, pliers, and boxcutter are great for the DIY dad!

 

Sometimes its hard for a guy to find a lunchbox that fits his needs as well as looks cool. Perpetual Kid has JUST the thing!

This toolbox-inspired cooler holds a 12-pack of Dad’s favorite beverage and keeps them cold for HOURS! Your pops can spend a day out on the lake fishing without ever having to go back to shore! #DadWin

 

Is your dad the type who touts Ron Swanson as his spirit animal? If so, he needs a pair of these:

grump_socks_800b__45694.1491494482.1280.1280

I actually might get a pair to flash at those pesky, incessant kiosk workers at the mall!

 

Got a geek dad that also likes to build–maybe an AT-AT playhouse for the kiddos? He’ll need an awesome tape measure to get that walker built!

iuqm_sw_r2d2_tape_measure

Exclusively from Think Geek, this R2D2 tape measure cannot be found at your local Home Depot! Snag one while you can!

 

Happy Fangirling and Happy Father’s Day!

It’s the first Friday in June, peeps! Its time for sun, fun, and lots of pasty legs in shorts! Woot, woot! I’ve rounded up some nerdy nifties to help you get your summer kicked into full gear!

 

Summer days are made for being in the pool. Honestly, I don’t know why people even leave the pool during June, July, and August (especially in Oklahoma)! Why get out of the cool, refreshing place to grab a drink when you can snag this awesome swag from Perpetual Kid?

Float Up Tiki Bar

At over five feet wide, this floating tiki bar has spaces for seven cold beverages (adult or otherwise) as well as a built-in ice chest! ALOHA!

 

Summer is FULL of weddings. Want to look chic while also staying true to your inner geek? Look no further than this a-DORK-able dress from Think Geek!

Star Trek Dress

This dress is covered in retro prints of starships from Star Trek! It even has pockets–that’s the dream!

 

Have a baby shower this summer? Help a sleep-deprived nerd momma out by gifting one of these!

Jedi First Year

This Jedi’s First Year calendar is not only handy for a new momma in her zombie-like state to know what day it is, it also doubles as a “baby’s first year” scrapbook! There are spots for pictures, baby’s milestones, and growth charts!

 

Ladies, are you ever out and about and need a screwdriver? Maybe a bottle opener? A nail file? But you’ve left your big bag of holding at home? Or maybe you just don’t like carrying a bunch of stuff with you. Have I got the thing for you!

These hair clips are also multi-tools! They come in black, silver, and pink! Just look at these specs!

I’m seriously considering getting some of these for all of my gal pals!

Fan Girl Friday!

Ah, Friday. Such a glorious day! And this one is even better because its part of a three-day weekend! Woot, woot! And I have exactly what you need to get your summer season started off right!

 

Thinking about hanging outside, watching the hunky pool boy? Wait, you don’t have a hunky pool boy? No worries, Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Hunky Pool Boy Floatie

Toss this good lookin’ fella in the pool and he’ll carry you around like the diva you are in his bulky arms!

 

Want to just catch some sun while also showing your nerdy side? Grab one of these circuit board swimsuits from Think Geek!

Circuit Board Swimsuit

One of the best things about this (besides its super comfortable and modest design) is that the binary coding on it spells “Love”! D’awww…

 

Maybe you don’t want to go out and instead, you want to have a weekend in! Your pals will definitely thank you for being a friend when you invite them over to play Golden Girls Clue!

Golden Girls Clue

According to ToyWiz.com, this specialty version of Clue “features a custom illustrated game board, where players attempt to solve the crime of WHO ate the last piece cheesecake, WHAT they left at the scene of the crime, and WHICH room they did it in.” When in doubt, blame Blanche!

 

Or, maybe, you’d rather use this extra-long weekend to just get away from people and spend some time with your fur babies. Why not spoil them with some nerdy cardboard houses from CacaoPets!

cardboard cat box

These amazing creations come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including the TARDIS, an Imperial Stormtrooper, and even a tank! They’re easy to assemble–no glue required! You’d better order one right meow!

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday Easter Egg

This ThinkGeek creation and exclusive looks almost good enough to eat! (I wouldn’t, though… those bricks would hurt coming out!)

Got a Minecraft-playin’, marshmallow-lovin’ geekling? Then grab a package of these sweets!

Each box has four fluffy marshmallow Creepers ready to be devoured!

 

Got a family member who is trying to watch their weight and has specifically said, “NO. CHOCOLATE. BUNNIES.”? Don’t worry! I’ve got something for them as well!

Fan Girl Friday Chocolate Bunny Plush

This chocolate bunny plush has all the festive-ness and nostalgia of your childhood Easters but without the calories! Woo!

 

Need something to get your hubs who daydreams about the “good ole days”? (And by “good ole days” I mean like, 1997). Yep, I’ve got something for him, too!

Fan Girl Friday Coloring Book

The Colour Me Good: 90’s coloring book is full of 90’s nostalgia sure to make you say, “This Easter basket is so fresh!”

Happy Friday, y’all! It seems like an eternity since I’ve done a Fan Girl Friday and I am soooooo excited about it! Let’s dive right in!

 

Some days, adulting is hard. Whether you’re a stay-at-home-momma that needs a little something to take the edge off or an up-and-comer at your company, we could all use a little pick-me-up at the end of a long day. And what better way to knock one back than in this trophy wine glass!

Sure its not one of the participation awards that so many have gotten in the past, but it will still give you that sense of accomplishment when you’re sipping chardonnay!

 

Ever since seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I have been OBSESSED with the adorable little creature that Newt carries around with him–a niffler! Now I can wear the cutie-patootie around my neck!

This precious necklace is made by Aisha Voya Creations! She’s got other accessories on her website including a variety of Harry Potter-inspired lapel pins and awesome dragon hair clips!

 

If you’ve ever dreamed of being like Ms. Frizzle with her wonderfully wacky outfits, I’ve got just the thing for you! Check out this a-DORK-able glow-in-the-dark constellation dress from Think Geek!

iush_glow_in_the_dark_constellation_dress

I guarantee if you wear this to your next night on the town, you will definitely be the brightest star of the bunch! Hey-oh! 

 

My family and I proudly proclaim that we speak fluently in movie quotes. I feel like this next game was made for folks like us! Meet Schmovie, your favorite new board game!

jqjq_schmovie_game_of_madeup_movies

According to the website, the object of Schmovie is: “…trying to convince the other players that your title is the best of the bunch for whatever concept is being pitched to the producer(s). We’re not asking for a full script here – just a working title. Bad puns are highly encouraged! Each round you’ll roll the genre dice (sci-fi, rom-com, horror, action, drama, and producer’s choice), and then draw two premise cards – one ‘What?’ and one ‘Who?’ The combination of those cards give you the movie you’re trying to pitch. If your movie gets the greenlight then you’ll win a shquid trophy. Win enough trophies and you win the game. Easy, right?”

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Background

 

Happy Friday, peeps! I know, I know… I’ve really been slacking on the blogging this week. With sickness infiltrating the Huffman Homestead at every turn, its been tough to get us back on our normal routine. Thankfully, all of us are on the uphill swing and I’m getting my shiz together so I can bring you more of the blog posts you’ve come to know and love. Well, maybe not love, but at least tolerate.

Let’s dive in to the nerdy nifties I’ve found for you this week!

Sometimes, being an adult is hard. Just the day-to-day responsibilities and duties that we have to fulfill can be a drag and you just want to feel like a kid again. Enter our first find, courtesy of Perpetual Kid:

chardonnay__35517-1485547322-1280-1280

Oh yes, you read that right: Chardonnay Cotton Candy! For those days when you want to feel like a kid again, but also sophisticated adult that drinks wine. There’s also beer-flavored,  birthday cake, and even bacon!

 

There was a debate this week at the Huffman Homestead as to which was better: Star Wars or Star Trek. Needless to say, things got pretty heated between me and Huff the Tot. I’ll always be hashtag Team The Force, but even I have to admit that Star Trek has some pretty cool tech. And its actually become a reality! Check out this exclusive from ThinkGeek:

jmgi_st_tng_bluetooth_com_badge

Yes, that is an actual WORKING Combadge! This bad boy uses Bluetooth® technology to sync with your phone so you can totes feel like Picard, Crusher, Worf, and the whole TNG gang! Click here to check out all the specs–its not just for calls!

 

Are you new to a fandom? New to the world of cosplays, cons, and fanfic? Need a helping hand to navigate the geeky galaxy ahead? Then look no further than Sam Maggs’ book: The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy!

10088058_multi_main

This book tells you all you need to know about this fantastic, fun, fabulous world of fandoms and everything it encompasses! Plus, Sam includes stories of kick-a women in various fandoms–doubly awesome!

Fan Girl…Monday?

fan-girl-friday-lego-banner

 

Yes, yes, I know… Its not Friday. So why am I doing a Fan Girl Friday post? Well, last week was a tad bit hectic. I worked some extra days last week to make up for the day I missed with the oh-so-fun stomach bug so the kids were off their schedules (and their rockers!) so I didn’t get a whole lot done last week. Ergo, no FGF. But, with Valentine’s Day TOMORROW, I knew I had to share some geeky goodies for the fangirl (or boy!) in your life!

This adorable Beauty and the Beast sleep set from Hot Topic!

beauty-and-the-beast-cami

This set has various characters from the film including Mrs. Potts and Chip, but there is another sleep set with the Beast’s enchanted rose and two Alice in Wonderland sets!

 

Maybe you’re not looking forward to V-Day because you and Player Two recently called it quits. No worries! Perpetual Kid has exactly what you need!

breakup-kit

According to the PK site, this kit “offers maximum relief from soul-crushing, revenge-inspiring, self-pitying, and all-around unbearable heartache.” Each kit includes five affirmation cards, bandages, a heart pendant, bracelet, remedy booklet, and recovery certificate!

 

Want a gift that will make her saw awwww! ? Look no further than this squee-worthy Vinyl Pop of Lady and the Tramp!

lady-and-the-tramp

Not your gal’s style? Maybe your leading lady is a little less Disney and a little more DC? I gotchu.

 

 

Married men tend to think that their wives need a lot of fancy things–diamonds, expensive dinners, imported chocolates… But what we really want is for you to stop farting, pick up your mess, and let us sleep in. Which is why this G-Rated book titled, “Porn for Women” can be considered the married man’s guide to romance!

porn-for-women

The description of the book says it all: “Prepare to enter a fantasy world where clothes get folded just so, toilet seats are down, and flatulence is just not that funny.  Our G Rated book, Porn For Women, showcases beautiful photos of hunky men cooking, listening, and asking for directions.”

 

Happy fangirling, lovebirds!
