Fan Girl Friday

Oh yeah, it’s FRIIIIIIIIDAY! I’m gearing up for a crazy three-day weekend of sewing, watching the greatest college football team of all time, and reading! #thuglife

But before I dive in to my wild weekend, I have some fun and fabulous fan girl finds to share!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the a-dork-able Funko Pop Vinyl figurines at Hot Topic. So cute, right? Look at what line was just released!

"You can't take the cute from me."

“You can’t take the cute from me.”

It’s the gang from Firefly! Now you can totally recreate your favorite scenes with these cuties! (Funko also recently released THESE!)
 

I used to be somewhat cynical, but after having a kid, I’ve become so soft (and I’m not just talking about my abs–hey oh!). These next pictures totally made me tear up like a big ole baby!
Holly Spring is the mother of a little girl who was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease as a baby, leaving her without a left hand. The photographer mom wanted to take some photos of her daughter to inspire her that she can do anything or be anything she wants to be. Check it out:

So ethereal!

This week, we got some very devastating news. Our favorite Japanese feline, Hello Kitty, we are now being told is not an actual cat! Hear that? That was the sound of my heart breaking. Some folks (ME), however, refuse to accept this. So, at this moment, Hello Kitty is both a cat and not a cat. Sound familiar? You can celebrate this Sanrio stalemate with these cute (and also morbid) Schrodinger’s Cat Earrings from Think Geek!

 

These are both accessories and not accessories.

Have a happy (and safe) Labor Day weekend!

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Fourth of July, fangirls and boys! Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I spent the entire day painting a room for two little kids that I think will be SUPER surprised when they finally arrive in Oklahoma! I can’t give you specifics because its supposed to be a surprise, but when they get here, I’ll post some pics!

 

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to find more ways to go green. We use cloth diapers, we use cloth napkins, and I’m trying to convince my sister to utilize the compost area in her backyard. But I think I found a super-easy way to conserve! Check out these pencils!

When you’re done with the pencils, just pop them in the planter and watch your plants grow! You can choose from herbs, spices, or veggies!

 

 

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters in just a little bit less than a month. And, if you just can’t wait to get your hands on some GotG swag, ThinkGeek has you covered!

These figurines are amazingly detailed and AWESOME! I really want the Groot one. He reminds me of Treebeard.

 

 

Even though I took a photography class in high school and college, I’m no photographer. If it goes beyond “point and click” I’m a novice. So photographer friends, rejoice! There’s a light meter attachment (does anyone even know what a light meter does?) for your iPhone!

Just snap it on top, download the app, and BAM! You’re ready for a photo shoot!

 

Looking for a gift for someone that seems to have everything? ModCloth has you covered. It’s a Name a Star Gift Set!

It comes with everything you need to document the name of your individual star! Now that’s a present that’s out of this world!

 

 

 

 

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! And be safe–remember, Roman Candles are not meant to be held.

Geek Gift-Giving Guide

Happy Friday, folks!

Typically I do a Fan Girl Friday on the last day of the week, but since Christmas is in a mere 12 days, I thought I’d do ya a solid and help you figure out what to get the geek on your list!

 

Typically, those involved in fandoms aren’t that difficult to buy for. Basically anything that remotely looks like a Tardis or the battlestar known as Gallactica will tickle any fan girl or boys fancy. But, if you’re unsure of what items go to which fandom, why, I’m here to assist!

 

For the Whovian on your list:

 

Celebrate! Celebrate! (In style!)

For when they watch "Blink" at night...

For the Tribute:

Take Finnick with you wherever you go!

For the Tolkien:

 

You shall not pass...up this awesome gift!

For the Batfan (wordplay!):

For the Khaleesi:

 

Poached, scrambled, or fried?

And even if your Secret Santa isn’t a nerd, I’ve got other gifts too!

 

For the one with too much energy:

Work off some of that egg nog!

For the one who—how do I say this nicely—frequents Taco Bell?

 

Put an end to stink!

For the manly man:

Work that Bump!

While my Maryland family was in town, my sister, Samantha, took some maternity pics of me and Huff the Hubs.

Don’t worry, they’re nothing like the maternity photos I found on the internet.

As a matter of fact, they’re AWESOME! I absolutely LOVE them!

Here are a few of my faves:

Thanks, Sam! You did an EXCELLENT job! (Especially with the Photoshopping of my chipped, janky-looking nails!)

Fan Girl Thursday

Hey fan-peeps! I’ve got something different for tomorrow so get ready for a bunch of nerd-tastic goodies coming your way!

First up, check out this awesome photo shoot from The Wedding Chicks‘ website! The couple’s wedding was Hunger Games themed. Let’s just hope that the guests weren’t asked to fight to the death.

I think the bride even resembles Katniss a little bit!

Its summer people, so that means heat. Which means you’ll be partaking in ice cream, but you’ll still need to look swim-suit ready. How do you keep the pounds off and still enjoy some Ben and Jerry’s? No need to diet, just use this from Perpetual Kid!

Half the spoon means half the calories, right? Right?!

And, if that doesn’t help with your weight loss goals, maybe try this from Oh Gizmo! Its a toilet seat that tells you how much you’ve lost after you’ve–ahem–dropped the kids off at the pool.

This blog started out to be so classy. Now its just gotten crappy. Heh. Word play!

And finally, check out this ADORABLE necklace from Think Geek! I think every fan-girl is going to be sporting one of these very soon; they’re too cute to go without!
