Oh yassssss, it is finally Friday! One more week until chocolate bunnies, egg hunts, and everyone dressed in their Sunday best! Today, I’m going to share some nerdy nifties that you’ll want to drop in your little nerdling’s Easter basket!

 

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!”

Fan Girl Friday!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

 

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, y’all! My newsfeed is a buzzin’ with pictures, sound bites, and opinions (oh, lawd, the opinions!) about today’s inauguration. Both sides of the aisle are speaking their minds and, while I don’t really want to get into a political debate, I thought I’d bring some humor to the table with some elephant- and donkey-friendly finds!

 

Maybe you’re a single person, out on the town, and you meet someone you think could be “the one”. Then, you’re horrified to find that they are not the same color state as you, forcing your martini to make a reverse trip. No worries, Perpetual Kid has your back!

both__69055-1456430745-380-380

 

 

Perhaps you’ve just washed your hands of both parties and want a new contender. One that won’t let you down, won’t argue with your platforms, and won’t pull you into a debate. I’ve got just the thing!

hillary-for-prison-pizza-party__44521-1468541773-1280-1280

Now THIS is a political party I can get down with!

 

Maybe you’re ready to make some changes starting in your immediate circle. Or, maybe you’ve got big ambitions and want to affect change on a larger scale. Record your plans in this!

Etsy shop Elevate and Fly channels Pinky and The Brain with this inspiring journal!

 

It could be that you just want to be done with errybody because, well, that’s just where you’re at. Tote your fave sauvignon blanc or chardonnay in this!

Yes, yes, I know–its only Wednesday. BUT, I had to show you some last-minute geeky gifts for the fanboy/fangirl in your life before that pesky two-day shipping becomes obsolete! I’ve found presents for all of the different nerds in your life!

 

For the sharp-dressed Jedi: 

Those bland beige and brown robes are a thing of the past! Help your rebel look fly while arguing about intergalactic trade law in this:

Hashtag, hottest in the galaxy. Hashtag, ballin’ like a Bothan.

 

For the Whimsical Woman:

This a-DORK-able color-changing unicorn nightlight creates a soft, glowing light while protecting you from bad dreams and from the fear of stepping on a Lego during those late-night bathroom trips!

 

For Your Bestie:

When you think of best friends, who do you think of? Lucy and Ethel? Batman and Robin? Kirk and Spock! Show your bud you’ll always have their back with this Star Trek ensignia friendship necklace!

d6e61244d830c8a5d479a7efa6264291

Let’s just hope one of you doesn’t go the way of Spock in Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan. *Overcome with feels*

 

For the One Who Should’ve Run Away With the Flying Circus: 

Got a friend that thinks he/she’s John Cleese with an American accent? Someone on your list that just will NOT stop acting like they work for the Ministry of Silly Walks? Look no further than Think Geek:

You’ll make your geek so happy, they won’t be able to get out “Aye, tis a scratch!” without crying tears of joy!

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, peeps! We are officially in Christmas countdown mode now that we are in December! Are you excited?! Need help getting into the Christmas spirit? Then I’ve got some nerdy nifties sure to put some jungle in your bells!

Last night, the fam and I watched Charlie Brown Christmas on TV–one of my favorite holiday specials! YouTuber Only Leigh decided to put her own geeky spin on the Christmas classic by making the mash-up, “Merry Christmas, Will Byers!” (a blend of Peanuts and Stranger Things!) Check it out:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but my Black Friday was spent binge-watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. And while I wanted to slap Rory (and Lorelai) a few times, I still really enjoyed the visit back to Stars Hollow! So much so that I think I need to grab some GG swag, like this adorable tee from I ❤ Apparel!

sportgrey_49bead61-b77c-482f-b0e6-6128518df003_1024x1024

This tee comes in a variety of colors (and you can also get this print on hoodies and mugs)! Plus they have other tees from Stars Hollow hot spots like Al’s Pancake World and, of course, Luke’s Diner!

 

For some folks, the holidays aren’t all stockings and rainbows. For some that aren’t able to make it home, the holidays can be a little sad. But have no fear! HomesickCandles.com can make you feel like you’re back with your family in your home state!

oklahomaboxwithcandle_grande

After a group of friends relocated out of state, they wanted to still feel close to their roots and Homesick Candles was born! Each candle is comprised of scents native to or famous in that state. The description for my home state (Oklahoma) reads: “These scents will take you back to the good ol’ days at home in the Sooner State with hints of pecan, barbecue, cinnamon, and vanilla.” Mmm…smells like home!

 

Anyone else seeing their computer covered in boring, yellow Post-Its? It can make your desk seem very bleak indeed. Why not spruce up the joint with these:

rainbow__06445-1480468645-1280-1280

Rainbow scratch art notes will surely make those reminders like, “Take out the trash!” and “Pick up dry cleaning!” feel like less of a nuisance and more exciting when written on these! You can get 125 notes for $8.99 from Perpetual Kid!
