Why We Need Luna Lovegood

According to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary the definition of unique is ‘being the only one; being without a like or equal; unusual.’ I like that last one. I’ve never been one to fit in. The time I spent in public school before my mom started homeschooling me, the whole clique scene, just wasn’t my thing. I had friends, or, let’s call them acquaintances, from different groups and backgrounds. Typically when it was convenient for them (needed help with a subject or just didn’t have anyone else to talk to at that moment). I got picked on and…

Stan Lee Getting a Street Named After Him in the Bronx

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to… Stan Lee Way? That’s right! Our favorite Marvel comic book hero Stan Lee will soon be getting a street named after him in his beloved Bronx in New York state. In a seemingly small, but meaningful way to honor a man that millions of people loved and admired the New York City council voted to approve a proposal to co-name University Avenue between Brant Place and W 176th. The new street name will be Stan Lee Way. Once mayor Bill de Blasio approves the proposal…

Marvel Studios Phase 4

Tonight was finally Marvel’s turn to take the stage in Hall H at the 2019 San Diego ComicCon, and man they did not disappoint! My head is still reeling from the crazy announcements that were made! Kevin Feige and company shared with the audience and the world what films and Disney + series will debut in Marvel Studios Phase 4 and I can not wait! I would have loved to have been there in person, it is on my bucket list for sure. Maybe for the next phase announcement, ha! But I did stay on top…

My Thoughts on Spider-Man Far From Home

Spoiler Warning! This post is a review and contains spoilers for Spider-Man Far From Home as well as some details from Avengers Endgame. We recently went to see the newest Spider-Man film, Far From Home, and this one hit me unexpectedly in an emotional way none of the others have. As a mother.  First, I have to say I absolutely love Tom Holland as this character. He portrays both Peter and Spider-Man so perfectly. I hope he remains in this role for a very long time. And, from what I hear, he hopes the same, so……

Ready to Read – Part 3

For the final post in my Ready to Read series, I want to tell you about some of the awesome books we use alongside our reading curriculum. I love these books because of their content and my daughter loves them because they are some of the easiest she has found to read on her own as a beginning reader. If you are a homeschool parent, I’m sure you’ve probably heard of Usborne books. If not, you’re in for a treat! Lucky for me, one of my closest friends is a rep for them. And it should…

My Thoughts on Toy Story 4

SPOILER WARNING!!! The following review contains spoilers for all of the Toy Story movies, but mostly Toy Story 4. Proceed with caution. I’ve been a Toy Story fan for a very long time. The first movie was released when I was just 11 years old and it was instant love. This is a review of Toy Story 4 with some backstory to hopefully help you understand why I feel the way I do about the newest addition to the story. Woody and Toy Story 1-3 Woody was my favorite character from the very beginning. He loves…

Nerdy Post Box

I’m a sucker for fan art. I love what creative people come up with when it comes to the fandoms I love. What I love about these Nerdy Post boxes are how unique the pieces are. If you like hand lettering and unique artwork you will love these as well! These boxes include gorgeous posters, postcards, bookmarks, and artwork; really cool stickers and collectible pins; and if you upgrade your box you can get premium products and tee shirts! And who doesn’t love a good geek subscription box?! I will continue to update these photos as…

Dreaming of Fictional Worlds

A lot of people dream of places here on earth that they would like to visit. As geeks, we dream of those places as well, but we also dream of worlds only reachable through our imagination. Worlds from our favorite pieces of fiction that are incredible and magical. Some of these places we would love to visit much more than anywhere here on earth. For some of us, these fictional worlds become an escape, a refuge from the chaos, conflict or mundane of everyday life. Lucky for us as readers and fans we get to visit…

Game of Thrones Season One Rewatch – Recap & Review

SPOILER WARNING! This post contains a lot of detailed information on Season One of Game of Thrones. Proceed with caution. After finishing season eight and being somewhat… unsatisfied with the lack of a storyline and how rushed it was we decided to rewatch the series from the start. We wanted to see what foreshadowing we could pick up on, how differently we felt about the story and characters knowing how everything ends, and see how many details we missed the first time through. The following are my notes and takeaway after finishing the first season. The…

Ready to Read – Part 2

In this post I will tell you about the reading curriculum we are currently using. It isn’t your typical curriculum, it is only one book! A lot of curriculum can be pricey. I am our family’s budget master, so finding something that meets our needs, actually works, and fits well within a budget is a win in my book! It is called Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons and can be purchased through Amazon here or through the link at the end of this post. The thing I love most about this program…
