Playing Catch Up

Why hello there, long time, no see!  It has been quite awhile since I updated – over three months actually – eek!

My husband and I are expecting a baby boy in May so as you can imagine, our world is in the process of being turned upside down.  We’ve decided on a Harry Potter nursery, is anyone actually surprised??

Our baby announcement!

We’ve gotten some of the major furniture items, done the baby registry, my friends are planning my NC baby shower and my next item of business is researching daycare for after I go back to work. The whole things still seems surreal!

Harry Potter flying key mobile

My best friend from college was in Atlanta for a conference so we went a bit baby crazy.  We made this gorgeous Harry Potter mobile using this YouTube video as a reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wyvv5eVOLao.  I am absolutely in love with it!

Amidst all the baby preparations, I did keep up with my reading.  Yes it is February but I would still like to share a few of my favorites from 2015:

Favorite Comics – The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Nimona, Locke and Key, Rat Queens, Trillium, Descender, Wytches, Saga, Ms. Marvel

Favorite Books – Carry On, The Revenge Playbook, An Ember in the Ashes, Speak, I’ll Give You the Sun, Rose Under Fire, Legend

Favorite TV Shows – Orphan Black, Supergirl

Favorite Movies – Star Wars, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two.

I hope you all have been doing well these path few months, reading some great books, and nerding out with some wonderful fandoms!

I first fell in love Fangirl fan-art on pinterest.  My favorite by far is Simini Blocker who I am so happy to see featured in the special edition (Emergency Dance Party).  Other contributing artists are Valeria Bogado Cravero, Leela Wagner and Lily Williams.

Mark went to buy running shoes today and I went to buy books.  Put this little tidbit on the twitterverse and look who took notice #squee!

IMG_4660I had to pause Panel’s latest podcast on the Age of Ultron to fangirl out at my desk.  Such a fangirling happened once before when I tweeted to Rainbow and Simini after My True Love Gave to Me came to out (amazing winter holiday collection, check it out!).  If you haven’t read Fangirl yet, what are you waiting for??
