Happy Friday, nerdlings! I’ve found some geeky goodies sure to put a smile on your face! Let’s dive right in, shall we?

With NASA finding new (and actually habitable) planets this week I’m sure many of you are now looking out at the night sky, wondering what all is out there. I’ve got something just for you, buddy!

Starfall is “a game of wit and quick thinking to build an impressive list of cosmic curiosities”! Designed for 2 to 4 players, each game only takes half an hour to complete! Grab your stargazing friends and start playing!

 

Before I married Huff the Hubs, I was NOT a fan of anime {gasp!}—I know right? But now, I’m converted! One of my favorites is My Neighbor Totoro! And Huff the Tot loves it too! So I’m thinking I need to grab one of these A-DORK-ABLE night lights from the niceEshop!

Just charge this nightlight through your computer or power bank, and set the Totoro terrarium next to your little geekling’s bed for a soft glow of light sure to help them snooze!

 

How is everyone doing on their New Year’s Resolutions? Falling a little behind? Maybe stagnating a bit? Need some motivation to put in more effort at the gym? Snag one of these sports bras to make you feel like an Amazon!

Anyone else feel a little guilty when they have to leave their pet at home as the run errands? Have no fear! Now you can take your pet with you, and take them in style!

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!

Happy Friday, peeps! Being “iced in” has had its perks! I’ve been able to find some awesomely nerdy nifties and news to brighten your frigid Friday and make this ice-pocalypse just a little more bearable!

 

Eighties ladies, rejoice! I’ve found some some adorable shoes to fill your heart with nostalgia and your closet with glee!

Looking to redecorate your home in 2017 but have NO idea how to use a nail and hammer and also want to keep your nerd cred? Opt for EverBlocks!

These Lego-like blocks aren’t just fun, they’re functional too! According to their site, EverBlock was “…conceived to allow designers, decorators, and inventors everywhere to economically build their dream objects.” I think we need these in the Huffman Homestead!

 

Pokemon Go was HUGE in 2016 (it was the most downloaded app last year, according to Apple). And, with the major updates coming for 2017, I’m thinking its going to explode again! Get your gaming pals together and celebrate with this!

pikachu-cake

“I chews you, Pikachu!” will be the rally cry of all Poke trainers as you devour a delicious slice of this cake, fueling you for more battles in between Pokestops!

 

Anyone else over winter? Because I am. Express your exasperation with this sun-less season with this snarky necklace from Hot Topic10854471_hi

I’ll wear this thing ALL. YEAR. ROUND, yo.

 

Happy fangirling!
