It’s Thursday and Thrilled time, and boy am I thrilled for some stuff this week! I’ve been in a suuuuper crafty mood lately. Last weekend was my Trekkie Trek and brunch for my local chapter of Geek Girl Brunch. As I did not want to run in costume I came up with a few small things to honor the occasion:
A tank top that I carved the Starfleet Insignia into and made into a stamp.
And some hair clips a fellow officer and I glued together to give to the brunchettes and interested brunchettes. I am so proud of them and the fact that they were a huge hit! Now, I’m itching for my next craft project. Read More
I’m slowly getting back in the habit of blogging on a regular basis. I find at the beginning of the week, I have a harder time getting motivation, but once Wednesday and Thursday hit, I usually do a lot better.
Here are some things I’m thrilled about this week!
In addition to being sick at the beginning of the week, this week is usually one of the busiest weeks for me at my job. However busy-ness does not keep me from being thrilled about things.
Here are some things that I have been thrilled with the past few weeks. Read More
It’s only the second Thursday of the year and I’m already behind in these! Siiiiiiiigh! The past few weeks have been a weird range of emotions, but as of this week I’ve been in a pretty awesome mood all week. Spending my days with my awesome company and my evenings watching shows with my husband that make us laugh so hard I feel like I had done a million crunches. Finally getting out of my weird holiday funk.
With all of that, this is what I’m thrilled about this week
The past couple weeks have been a blur of running, fandoms, photo ops, and fast food. I have no one to blame but myself. This saturday marks the final event that I’ve had planned for the past few months and I can finally start to relax.
I’m pretty excited to start winding down in the fall and winter months, starting with these few things:
I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA this week. I blame my excitement for Salt Lake Comic Con starting TODAY!
This is Salt Lake Comic Con’s Third Year and has been growing like crazy each year. This will be my second time attending and I’m VERY excited. This con has had its fair share of growing pains (and then some), but I feel that each year they are trying to get things better and better.
This year I don’t think I’ll be doing any cosplay. It’s going to be a year of photo-ops for me and I don’t want to be in Cosplay for my pictures (I know. It’s a bit lame).
Though just because I won’t be dressing up, doesn’t mean I don’t want some pointers on what to do for Cosplay. Read More
This whole week has been a blur of pumpkin bread and laundry. I can’t seem to keep up with either of them. I love making pumpkin bread around this time, but it’s exhausting.
Here is what I’m thrilled about this week!
September is surprisingly one of the busiest months I’ve had in a long time. Coming up I have my Time-Lord 5k (I need to think of a shirt design for that soon), Salt Lake Comic Con, a Gamer 5k (where I’ll be sporting my Lakitu Costume), in addition to all of my amazing TV shows returning. It’s crazy and exhausting but by the end of it, it’ll be so much fun!
Despite all the busyness, I’m still pretty excited about a couple things!
This week’s Thursday and Thrilled is brought to you by Period Dramas. Around this time of year (shortly after my birthday and right before fall really sets in), I get into this kick of watching copious amounts of literature inspired period dramas (or in some cases, webseries based on those pieces of literature). I’m not sure why, but the way they talk, the way they act just puts me in the most agreeable mood.
They’re always so romantic and sweet. I just can’t get enough of cuddling up with my cat (the husband won’t watch them without ensuring that I hear his “funny” commentary) and a cup of peppermint tea. So here are a few of my favorite period dramas* (and inspired by period drama) items this week!
*expect a lot of Jane Austen. #sorrynotsorry
I’m so ready for the weekend! Getting my hair done and a writing day with my writing buddy planned. An excellent way to start the month. Next Saturday is my birthday, so I’m gearing up for that in the following days and trying to figure out exactly what I want to do.
Here are some things I’m thrilled about this week: Read More
