Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday! It has been one, long, HOT week here in the Middle of America. But I’ve found some cool treats to help us chillax (see what I did there?) into our weekend!

 

I love anything and everything related to the UK. I’ve been to London three times and my Netflix queue is filled to the brim with British shows. I’m also a Game of Thrones fan (even though I haven’t watched too much of this season). So when I saw this, I was so. Freaking. Excited!

It’s the Queen’s Guard playing the GoT theme song! And people say that Britons have no sense of humor…

 

Speaking of Brits; get ready Whovians! Word on the street at SDCC (aka, San Diego Comic Con—happening this week!) is that Peter Jackson, our favorite Hobbit-loving director, will be using his talents on the small screen! That’s right, PJ is going to direct an episode of Doctor Who!

Do you have a picky eater in your house? Is dinnertime a battle? Make it fun with this game board-inspired plate from Give Simple!

Just put your kid’s dinner in the little openings, and have them eat as they go! Then, when they reach the Finish Line, they can uncover a treat! (I actually know a few adults who need to eat off of this—HA!)

 

And speaking of eating (aka, my favorite hobby), dessert just got a whole lot better! Some students at Harvard came up with the most amazing invention ever: cake in a spray can!

Snack time is forever changed!

Royally Excited

Most of you now I’m a total Anglophile; I love anything and everything British. I watch Sherlock, Doctor Who, The Graham Norton Show, drink Twinnings, eat biscuits (not cookies), and have even been across the pond three times. So it should come as no surprise that I am ridiculously excited about Kate and Will’s baby.

 

On a scale of 1-10, my anticipation level for the arrival of the bouncing baby boy or girl is at about a 9. The British, however, are probably hitting the 11 or 12 point mark. I haven’t seen them this excited since dentists started offering veneers (ba-da-bum-psh!).

 

Just check out all the commemorative gear they’ve come up with to celebrate the royal arrival!

 

For a little princess, monogrammed clothes complete with title so that no one forgets who’s really in charge:

Time to change the prince/princess’s nappy! Make sure its embroidered!

 

 

Posh tableware (with a little painting of the Duke and Duchess’s pup, Lupo):

This is for all those dinner parties the little royal will no doubtedly host with the Beckham’s children.

 

 

An iPhone cover for the royal baby fan (which, in my eyes, is royally creepy):

Nothing screams: “I’m a wierdo” like an iPhone case with someone else’s baby on it.

 

There’s also a variety of books, mugs, truffles (I may need some of those), and commemorative cookies biscuits:

Notice the corgi on the mug with Granny the Queen?

 

My favorite though is this sleeper:

If I don't get my bottle soon, it'll be off with your head!

If I don’t get my bottle soon, it’ll be off with your head!

 

 

Whether the Duke and Duchess’s spawn is a prince or princess, George or Diana, I think we can all agree that this child will be adorable.
