nerdy Valentine’s Day cards for your special someone

Please excuse me while I nerd out and share my favorite Nerdy Valentine’s Day Cards with you.Game of Thrones Nerdy Valentine's day cards

Let’s be real. I could end this post right here. Because, well, any guy who gives me a Tyrion or John Snow valentine would be the best. ♥

But while Game of Thrones does take up the biggest spot in my nerd-girl heart (maybe because the books are so damn long?!), there are tons of other nerdtastic v-day cards.

Battlestar Galatica Valentine’s Day Cards

When Ryan and I went through our BSG affair, we would frequently ask each other, “would you still love me if I were a cylon?” Finding out your partner is a cylon must be the ultimate test of love, right?

And this card. Oh gosh, my heart would swell if anyone gave me this card.

We have such adventurous spirits, that this could pretty much sum up our relationship.

 But, I feel like this card might be more up his alley, as far as romance goes.

Or this card.

But I think this one might be my favorite one of all.

I’m always fond of when Carl Sagan is portrayed as a romantic figure. And also, his love story might be my favorite love story of all.

Six Dress Halloween Costume

For Halloween this year, I went as a character from my all-time favorite TV show, Battlestar Galatica. I’m serious, guys. This is the most fan-person thing I’ve ever done. I’m not kidding, I’m getting excited just writing this post. The character is Caprica Six, or the six model of cylon. I find her fascinating and one of the most intriguing fictional characters ever developed. So, to show off the dress, Ryan, Watson and I did a little photo shoot. You think I’m kidding?

Watson Modeling

Watson was being his usual grumpy self. And ryan was showing me how it’s really done.

So, he’s gonna kill me for posting that photo. Ok. On to the dress, which is why you’re really here.

Dress Before:

Dress After:

I cut up an old dress my friend let me have. I created a shape for the bodice, extended the back (I couldn’t get it to zip over my breasts), cut out the waist and back, and shortened it.

Here’s the back of the dress.

I bought a wig, but it looked cheap and horrible. I might be this character again and again for every Halloween. I saw a really someone create hand make the character’s jewelry, and I’d like to attempt that next time.

Here’s me doing the iconic pose.

What do you think?

So now you know, I’m a huge nerd.

the weekender: 2/3/2012

Apologies for the radio silence the past week. I started my 10k training group and I’m trying not to fall behind. Basically, I’ve been running a lot.

My routine: I get off of work at 5 p.m. Run for 45 minutes. Get home around 6:30 p.m. Take a hot soak. Eat a bag of popcorn (dinner). Watch 20 minutes of Downton Abbey before I realize this is boring. Then I go to bed (8:30 p.m some nights, I’m such a lightweight).

Sometimes I switch it up by going to my boyfriend’s house and watching Battlestar Galatica(!) until I pass out on his couch.

So, I haven’t been cooking or crafting. But I have links for you!

Kit Kat Cake

I can’t explain how much I desire this Kit Kat Ice Cream Cake.

This glitter jar DIY. I want them all over my house.

How to look your best in photos. Please god, I need to remember all of this.

Heart-shaped sugar cubes or heart-shaped milk cubes for some DIY Valentine’s Day cheer.

Add lace to the cuff of your jeans for some cute detail.

These photos of exploding food look too cool. Plus, we all love food and explosions, right?

Plus, this is how it all started.
