Fan Girl Friday!

Doctor Who Fan Girl Friday

 

Happy Friday, peeps! Its been a whirlwind here in Oklahoma the past week, what with the teacher walkout and Mother Nature acting a wee bit bi-polar. I think we could all use some fandom fancies to help boost our moods!

As I said, the teacher walkout has been going on all week long. I’d personally like to see one of the awesome teachers down at the capitol wearing this Miss Frizzle-inspired getup!

Ms Frizzle Dress

Isn’t it awesome?! And–bonus!–its under $25! Score!

 

Tomorrow morning here in OKC there’s a chance of freezing rain and snow. Five days later, the forecast calls for a high of 81. Yes, I’m serious. I think for those days that actually feel like spring, I need to invest in this:

This magical inflatable sprinkler is what we all need in our yards and our lives! How much fun would it be to run around with the kiddos alongside this?!

 

Sometimes I feel like a 70-year-old in a 33-year-old’s body. I’m snarky, sarcastic, and like to be in bed by 8:00. And when you get me and my squad together, we’re basically the Golden Girls. Maybe we need to grab these to rep our GG selves!

These adorable lip balm holders from Etsy shop Little Dainty Darlings clip onto your keyring, purse, or diaper bag while looking uber-cute!

 

 

Its been a rough week. I think we could all use some relaxation and rest. Maybe cuddle up and watch a Studio Ghibli movie! And what better way to enjoy a beautiful Japanese cinematic experience than with these!

These Totoro slippers look so incredibly comfy and cozy! Those plus a catbus to take me on a Starbucks run and my weekend would be set!

 

Happy fangirling!

Today in my great state, schools are closed. Not because of inclement weather, but because the teachers are marching the steps of the State Capitol. I absolutely support the teachers in their endeavor to get funding for their classrooms, to create smaller class sizes, and to get paid for the hard work they put in week after week. Teachers deserve our respect and our support.

They’re are so many things I could say, stats I could provide, and stories I could tell to illustrate the need for proper funding, smaller class sizes, better pay, and improved working conditions for educators all around the nation. Instead, I’ll let this video speak for itself.

 

I stand with you, teachers! Keep fighting for our kids!
