five {things i'm geeking out over} on friday

Newflash: I'm a total nerd.  I bet most of you understood that already and knew this, but I'm just coming out of the geeky closet "officially" for you today.  For the Five on Friday linkup that I love so much, even though I have neglected it the last couple weeks, I'm going to be sharing with you five things I have been GEEKING OUT over for the last few weeks.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

OH MY GOSH.  I die.  Essentially this is a modernized version of "Pride and Prejudice" as portrayed via Lizzie Bennet's vlog.  I'm obsessed with it and most are shocked that I haven't been following it since the very beginning.  I've been a longtime nerdfighter and love pretty much any project Hank Green is involved with.  I heard about LBD, but I didn't start watching mainly because at the point it began I was: PLANNING MY WEDDING.  However, now I'm over a year into wedded bliss (!) and my next semester of college won't be starting until January/February, so I have some time.  Plus, I'm on my four days off after finishing the graveyard shift at work, so boo yah!  Binge watching LBD! 

Super Mario Brothers

We finally bought Super Mario Brothers for the Wii.  I have never been so excited to feel so incredibly inept at something.  Seriously, I suck at it (it's been a lot of years since I've played Super Mario...) especially in comparison with my husband, who is ridiculously awesome at everything that I am terrible at. 

Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up

Okay, so this isn't really a geeky thing...considering it's a beauty product...BUT OH MY GOSH I AM OBSESSED WITH IT!  If you're addicted to Highlighting and Contouring (which I am, because I have a ridiculously round face...seriously, even at my thinnest I had a round face) this stuff is the best luminizer I've ever used.  It has a gorgeous color, it isn't glittery and it goes on so easily.  Love it so much.  Also, I use this Highlighting and Contouring technique from Maskcara, but I use different products because my skin tone is very light and acne prone.  If you're interested in learning about my makeup or skincare routine, let me know! 

POP! Vinyl Bobbleheads

So, I talk about this is my "About Me" section, but I love the POP! Brand Vinyl Bobbleheads.  Seriously, it all started when my husband and I were dating.  We would go to Barnes and Noble for our dates all the time.  And one day when we were browsing I saw the most ADORABLE Princess Leia Bobblehead figurine.  Seriously, I was dying over it.  We didn't buy it, but I immediately looked up the brand and saw all of the adorable ones that they have!  Our first Christmas as newlyweds, my husband did get me the Princess Leia bobblehead and now we're slowly growing our collection.  Recently we got a limited edition Iron Man 3 one, which is awesome. 

Diet Dr. Pepper

This stuff has been my lifeblood the last few weeks.  Mainly because, rotating shifts mean no normal sleep pattern.  Meaning, caffeine is necessary.  And I HATE SUGARED SODAS.  Seriously, hate them.  They're way too sweet.  Plus, I grew up in a home where we never, ever, ever had sugared soda (my mom and dad are both diabetic, but it was a real blessing for me in the end).  It's so good!  However, I will admit I tried the whole "Dirty Diet Coke" thing that everyone has been so obsessed with...I don't get it.  I didn't like it at. all.  Blegh...


  1. Headed to check out The Lizzie Bennet Diaries! It sounds like something I would enjoy.

  2. I am with you on DDP as I affectionately call it! Regular soda is much too sweet and tastes flat compared to diet. I guess the cancer from aspartame will get me before the diabetes!


Thanks for coming to my little corner of the blog world. I love you already!
