Unboxing May @nerdypost: Maas theme 

I’m late, but here’s my unboxing for the May @nerdy.post! (I post my unboxings late bc I hate to spoil it for others.) The theme was MAAS and Alexis captured her books so well! Scroll down to see close-ups of the prints, buttons, and pin! .

So many goodies! My favorite is the ACOMAF bookmark done by guest artist Brittney @reverieandink. I love this quote! We also had a special surprise–a second poster from Tahira @tjlubrano of Abraxos. I love her work! Both of these ladies have their work for sale! Check out their profiles to see more!

.

The June Nerdy post was Alexis’s 1 year anniversary box with multiple fandoms represented. It was amazing! I can’t wait to share that with you guys! And did you hear July’s theme? It’s Alice in Wonderland. I know there are big fans of this book in this community, so make sure you sign up! 

.

I hope you’re all have a fantastic Thursday! What’s your favorite box subscription? What fandom merchandise can you not live without? 

Spells leggings from The Nerdy Store!

FRIENDS, you are all amazing! Thank you so much for all your kind words for my book and my Moana costume in my previous post. ❤️ I haven’t been comfortable in front of the camera in a long time, but I’m working on being positive about me and who I am now–a 40ish mother of four children who is following her dream to become a writer. Damn, when I say it like that, I sound pretty awesome. 😆 Thank you again! 🙏🏽❤️.

And here’s something of a first for me again! A #socksunday post! I never tried this because I didn’t get the logistics of how to take it (remember I’m in my 40s and just not that bendy anymore😂), but I HAD to also show off my Spells inspired Harry Potter leggings from the @nerdy.store. I took this picture earlier this afternoon and I have not taken these leggings off yet! Friends, they are so comfortable and the material is soft and light. But best part are the spells! Such fantastic lettering! 😍

.

And of course, I paired my Spells leggings with my I Solemnly Swear I’m Up to No Good socks and Hermione Funko Pop which were prizes won from a giveaway hosted by @riddlesteashoppe. Thank you Juli!! And if you haven’t tried her HP inspired tea, you must! 

.

I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

April: Middle Earth @nerdy.post

This is a bit late, but I’m pretty sure no one will be spoiled for the April: Middle Earth @nerdy.post unboxing. 😁.

I can’t even tell you guys how much I loved this box. I don’t know how Alexis does it every time, but I’m so impressed with how much thought and how much detail goes into each item. From the selected quotes right down to the Gondor penny, Alexis really poured her heart into this box. 

.

I loved every item, but my favorites were the poster print of Gandalf’s very famous quote–I used to have it posted in my classroom when I was teaching. 😄 And, of course, the one washi tape to rule them all! It’s gold washi with the One ring runes printed on it. If you don’t know, I’m obsessed with washi tape and this was perfect! 

.

Please make sure to scroll down to see close-ups and the flip sides of the bookmarks. Everything was stunning!

Also, the theme for May is MAAS! You don’t want to miss it! Check out my girl Kori @_livelaughread for a discount code on your first box!

Book Challenge: A Book 50 Years Older Than You

It’s Thursday. We made it to our spring break! 😄 Tomorrow is the first day of vacation. One of the first things we do is head to the library to stock up on books during the break. What are some things you do to get your vacation started?.
For #grimdragon A book that’s at least 50 years older than you: The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’m still reading through the stories but I’m enjoying them so far. 

.
For #watermelanerdsapril The Dregs: Okay. I slipped in the crow because it went well with my Sherlock Holmes edition but it’s really a nod to one of my favorite band of criminals whom I think Sherlock Holmes would have probably found fascinating. 

.
For #thehamiltonedition “I am inimitable. I am an original.”-Most Unique Character: Sherlock Holmes! Most famous detective ever! 


For #squeakybookishlibrary Sun and Moon: Mrs. Hudson is the moon–calm and steady what Sherlock needs a lot. Irene Adler is the sun–fiery and burns which we know Sherlock has experienced with her!

.

The Sherlock skull bookmark with Mrs. Hudson’s quote “A nice murder. That’ll cheer you up” is from the Sherlock @nerdy.post. 

Book Challenge: Book that got you through a tough time

Is the weekend really over? Sad face! I’ve been been pretty much battling migraines all weekend and now that they seem to be going away, the weekend is over. At least my Monday won’t be too bad. Yay? .
For #grimdragon I needed this book! A book that got you through a tough time: If you’re new to my profile, I’m a big Jane Austen fan! Pride and Prejudice came at a time in my life when I needed it most. It was my first year teaching and I wasn’t sure if I was cut out for teaching. My father also passed away that year too. It was a year plagued with doubt and loss and Pride and Prejudice helped me get through it all. I actually saw parts of the BBC Miniseries (Colin Firth will always be Mr. Darcy to me!) on TV and decided that I wanted to read it first before I saw anymore of it. I loved it! Jane Austen also inspired me to be a writer too.

.
For #squeakybookishlibrary Good and Evil: Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham!  

.
For #thehamiltonedition “It’s hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets.” Hot and steamy scenes: Okay. Corsets were used in Regency England which is when Pride and Prejudice was set! But, as for hot and steamy, well, I thought the Netherfield ball when Darcy and Elizabeth dance together and verbally spar was steamy…for the Regency era. Oh! And Lydia and Wickham! They were totally hot and steamy! (But it was like implied.)

.

This gorgeous Darcy and Elizabeth print was from the Classics themed @nerdy.post. 

Happy Mail!

Even though January was a tough month for me and my family (see previous posts), receiving happy mail helped to make it better. I have so much to share with you all! The January boxes for @owlcrate and @nerdy.post were AMAZING. Owlcrate’s theme for January was Classic Remix and Nerdy Post’s theme was Star Wars. I loved both of these boxes! I also received some cute planner stickers from @paperkumaco. Then my prizes for the 1 year anniversary giveaway for @riddlesteashoppe arrived too! Between caring for a sick family and all the rainy weather, this load of happy mail was wonderful. .

I’ve got it down in my bullet journal to take pictures of all the goodies. I’m at an age where if I don’t write it down, it won’t get done! I can’t wait to share everything with you all!

Book Challenge: Favorite Book and Author 

For #squeakybookishlibrary Casablanca: Dated Love and #bibliophile2017 Favorite Classic Book and favorite author, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is my all-time favorite book and Jane Austen is my all-time favorite author! I discovered Pride and Prejudice my first year teaching. It was a really hard time in my life and I caught the BBC mini-series on TV and thought I’d probably enjoy the book. Not only did I enjoy it, but I really admired Jane Austen’s style and the fact that she wrote during a time when it was frowned upon for women to make their own living..

My Jane Austen swag is from the Classics @nerdy.post. My January @nerdy.post arrived today and the theme is Star Wars. I haven’t had a chance to open it yet because we were on our way out the door! I’ll share an unboxing post later in the week. 

.

I’m at my SIL’s house for her birthday party, but I snuck on to post! 😆 What are you up to tonight?
