Life with Luna: 2017

img_3609

Before my very eyes, Luna is turning into a toddler. She is really perfecting her balance and speed while walking, and is {finally} starting to imitate words, such as Papa, up, agua + Aba (her grandma).  You may notice one of those words is not Mama, but I digress…{hrmph}.

It’s really hard to wrap my head around this rapid passing of time on most days. I still remember the moment of her birth clearly, and when I see us well on the way to being half way to 2, it can do a number on my heart. Time can do this.

What I Wore: A Very Magical Christmas

img_3508

Quick confession: I’ve never been a fan of Christmas. It was always a bumpy time for my family, and just generally signaled stress for me. My husband has always been trying to break me of this, being a big fan of the holiday, and it was only when my daughter was born that I felt the switch turn on. This year was extra special because she’s a toddler, which means she is starting to react at opening presents {at least the ones she likes}. I was all smiles seeing hers light up the entire room. It was at that moment that I realized what people mean about the magic of the holidays, and I can only imagine it is going to get only better from here.

YouTubin': A Buzz Bag 2-4-1

 

It’s been a long time coming, but here’s a new unboxing video. I had a great time opening these babies up, as they are two of my biggest fandoms, and I’m sure you will be able to tell from the amount of squee-ing taking place.

Life has been rough, but I’m happy to say that things are slowly going back to normal. Luna was hospitalized for severe dehydration after an apparent stomach flu (I still don’t buy it) that spanned 10 days. It was an absolutely terrible experience that left me both drained and absolutely thankful for every little healthy moment.

With that said, I know that my regular blogging routine was disrupted, but the good news is that I’m back and ready to tackle the remainder of 2016.

Nerdy Must Haves

Happy Meal Dress; I am absolutely in love with Bonne Chance dresses, even though I am yet to be able to purchase one. They have cute collars and kawaii designs, so what else do I need in my life? I especially love this quirky one because I often don’t get to eat fun things with all my allergies, so I opt to wear them instead as often as possible.

Potter Umbrella; In Miami, it is almost a necessity (no, no it is) to have an umbrella on hand at any moment. You never know when the sky is going to open up and ruin your day. The fact that I can have a Potter themed umbrella would make toting the enormous thing around worthwhile.

I Believe in Stardust; I am instantly drawn to anything mystical and magical in nature, so of course, I need this adorable pin from Ban.do. I love the simplicity and the pastel colors. I think it would look absolutely fabulous on my growing fandom jacket. Who says magic can’t be a fandom?

Anchorman Pencils; Who doesn’t love Anchorman? Watching this film is seriously one of the few simple pleasures in my life (no, I still have not brought myself to watch the train wreck of a sequel) and I love that some of its signature quotes are immortalized on pencils. This would be so great as swag for a Geek Girl Brunch!

Holiday Gift Guide

Guys. This is it.
The last day of November, which means that Christmas is officially upon us. I am lucky enough to have finished 96% of my shopping and can sit pretty, but I know a lot of you are still on the hunt, trying to find the best gifts for family and friends. If some of those on your list are of the geeky variety, then I’ve got a fun round up for you!
