Hallelujah, it’s Friday! And payday! And Cinco de Mayo (hooray for half-priced tacos)! And not only that, but its only 9 days until Mother’s Day! What? You haven’t gone shopping yet?! Not to worry, I’ve got a gaggle of geeky goodies for the great gal in your life!

 

There are many times I have to correct people who say I’m bossy with, “Its not ‘bossy’; its leadership skills.” Got a momma like that? Grab a pair of these mitts from Perpetual Kid!

There’s also one for your more intimidating madre as well as the bookworm babe!

 

Got a whimsical woman who always likes to look her best? Look no further than this unicorn nail polish dryer!

Nails fly and dry in 5 minutes flat! No risk of messing up her mani while she chugs a uni-frap!

 

If you’re a mom of littles, you’re constantly carrying around a ton of crap. Seriously. Between snacks, diapers, wipes, and crayons, I need an enormous bag to carry it all in! Thank goodness ThinkGeek has my nerdy back with this!

This canvas “Motherboard” bag is perfect for carrying all of your spawn’s stuff as well as looking geek chic!

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!

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:

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!

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:

Happy first Friday of fall, y’all! I don’t know how the weather is where you’re fangirlin’, but here in Oklahoma it STILL feels like summer! I’m ready for hashtag PSL’s and bulky sweaters that cover up my summer of bad decisions. Pretty sure the only thing that can cheer me up is a blog full of nerdy nifties! Oh, look, here’s one now!

Today I’m bringing you geeky goodies from one of my new favorite fandoms that is actually celebrating its fifty anniversary! Its a fandom that will boldly take you where–well, let’s face it–other fandoms have taken you before… but none have looked as good doing it as Captain Picard, amirite?! That’s right, today’s FGF is all about Star Trek!

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s genius, the USPS is launching limited edition stamps! Check ’em out!

Want some simple Star Trek swag to accessorize with?  Then look no further than Etsy shop JewelSculpts! They’ve got a lot of amazingly geeky gear, like this Vulcan salute necklace!

Happy Friday, fangirls and boys! Even though its been a busy week, I have found some nerdy nifties to make your weekend be filled with geeky joy!

 

I’m sure most of you are ECSTATIC that it is finally #PSLseason and that means pumpkin flavored errythang! This year, though, its not just pumpkin that’s making the rounds, but butterscotch as well! M&M’s will be debuting their butterscotch-flavored candies very soon and–good news!–sources say they taste JUST. LIKE. BUTTERBEER!

1470841949-syn-ghk-1470681173-delish-fall-mms-booterscotch

So even if you can’t get away to Harry Potter World, bust open a bag of these, pop in HP #1 in the DVD player, and don those robes! It’ll be like you’re back at Hogwarts!

 

When I was a kid, I thought I was a bad-a clothing designer because I was a Fashion Plates pro! Now, thanks to an awesome company called Picture This, kids can wear their actual drawings/designs!

57c48f51170000a014c763f1

Picture This was founded by a mother who created a dress designed by her daughter. Her little one loved the dress and lit up when she told people, “I’m wearing my imagination!” Now kids everyone can do the same!

 

This year, Star Trek is celebrating their 50th anniversary! There’s a lot of limited-edition gear coming out, but I think my favorite is from RockLove Jewelry! Just check out this GORGEOUS Starfleet ring!

starfleet-ring

Not only do they have awesome jewelry for Trekkers, but they TONS of fandoms to choose from!

 

And speaking of a-DORK-able jewelry, I’ve found an awesome new Etsy shop full of accessories for fangirls! PeachesandPebbles Shop has a great selection, including hard-to-find fandoms like Totoro!

SO. FREAKING. CUTE!

Happy Friday Star Wars Release Day, y’all! I am so stinking excited to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens I can barely stand it! Sadly, I couldn’t get tickets until Monday evening, so I’m thinking I’ll be on a “social media blackout” until then. I’ve had waaay too many things spoiled just by scrolling through my newsfeed. I’ve learned my lesson.

 

Today is not only momentous because Jedis and Storm Troopers are back in the cinemas, but also because it’s exactly ONE week until Christmas! If you’re still trying to get those last-minute/hard-to-buy-for gifts knocked off your To Do list, I can help!

 

For the “silly walker” in your life, look no further than the Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail 40th Anniversary Edition!

Monty Python 40th Anniversary Edition

This awesome set comes packed with bonus features, behind-the-scenes looks, and cast interviews all packed into a castle box complete with animals you can toss over the walls! Who wouldn’t love that?!

 

For the Trekker Mom-To-Be on your list, keep it logical with this Vulcan on Board maternity tee from Think Geek!

irqk_vulcan_on_board_ruched_maternity_tee_mb

Live long and prosper, Momma.

 

For the one who treats their life like a musical, grab this sparkly necklace from Perpetual Kid!

Wizard of Oz Necklace

Just don’t be offended if they try to click the heels on the charms to go home in the middle of your Christmas party.

 

For the overworked/sarcastic mother in your life (which, let’s face it, is basically every mom!), let them don this little beauty so everyone can see their hilarious snark:

I childproofed my house necklace

Pretty sure my mom probably said this a few times when my sisters and I were little, ha!

 

Have you finished your shopping yet? Better hurry!
