Everyday Cosplay: National Cupcake Day

Happy ALMOST National Cupcake Day! The official day is February 24th but I wanted you nerds to be ready with a cute outfit to wear when the delicious day arrived!
Everyday Cupcake

Everyday Cupcake by thenerdygirlie featuring a wide brim hat

I've done a few food Everyday Cosplays in the past and they have been so much fun {Starbucks Red Cups, PSL, pumpkin pie} so I just had to do one again for this special day! 

This outfit might be a bit too girlie for some? But I wouldn't be The Nerdy Girlie if I didn't create a sweet look! I loved picking out a few accessories that could represent the sprinkles. Take or leave a few of them if it is too much for YOUR style! Even just the pink dress, tights and shoes would be a sweet look for the minimalist!

If you are near a Cupcake ATM today would be the PERF day to hit that up. For me I am about to go search all of Denver for the perfect cupcake! Wish me luck!

Every holiday deserves a lil cosplay!

Today I Will Be Happy & Celebrate You


October 5th, 2014 was the day I lost one of my biggest champions, today would have been her 61st birthday.

I found out that my Aunt Sheryl had brain cancer in June of 2013 after returning from a vacation. What a way to be brought back down to Earth from a vacation high. She had already been in the hospital undergoing surgery while I "recovered" from my trip.
I soon found out that she came out alright and would be beginning treatment. This began a year and a half fight that she never gave up on. Until the very end she was always Sheryl. My Aunt was one of the strongest, most confident and passionate people in my life. She was a successful Doctor, a published Author and an Inspirational Speaker.

I've never had someone close to me die before and I didn't know how I would process it. We all knew it was coming, but we never lost hope and always shared our love for each other. I regret all the time that passed between visits when she was healthy, but I am thankful all the time we spent together while she was sick.

She ALWAYS told it like it was, even if you didn't want to hear it and because she was family I always trusted and never doubted her words. We didn't always share the same views, but we always respected each other. I am left with with her words of support, encouragement and love that pushes me to be the woman she always saw in me.

I still cannot wrap my head around death. It is so final and yet not because you still have your thoughts and memories. A living in her house after she was gone was sad but also only felt like she was out for the moment. My Uncle gave me a few of her purses and I love being able to carry a piece of her with me. {We were/are both purse lovers :)}
Our last picture together.

Our last day together, a Friday, was the hardest. She told me she loved me, she held my hand so tight and I could feel like she didn't want me to leave. The next morning she was gone. I'm glad we had those final moments together and I am so happy that she is at peace and not in pain anymore. She hated being cooped up in bed, it was not her. Now she is free to be herself again and I know she is with me and whispering "my sweet Meg."

Top 8 Psych Episodes in 8 Seasons

FINALLY...after seven straight weeks of nothing but Psych I am, like you anxiously awaiting The Psych Movie in December! I laughed again, I cried again, I laughed even more! WHAT am I going to do until December?! Probably go back and re-watch these eight awesome episodes!

Season 1: Shawn vs. The Red Phantom. Psych + Comic Con could it be anymore perfect?! I also love the introduction of Gus as Magic 8 Ball. One thing I love about this show is the fun names they come up with for Gus!

Season 2American Duos. Because of this video! Cannot wait for the musical episode!! Any songs they do are so great...they have awesome taste!

Season 3Murder?... Anyone?... Anyone?... Bueller? 80s movie reference galore! So happy to see the Rachel Lee Cook come in as guest start. She's All That mini reunion with Dule!  

Season 4: Mr. Yin Presents. I thought this is when the show got more serious. Love that it became a trilogy I have been amazed by all the amazing guest stars they havegotten for the show!

Season 5Yang in 3D. The end of the trilogy. Great story finished nicely.

Season 6: This Episode Sucks. Psych + vampires = another amazing combo. Interview With a Vampire is my favorite movie of all time and James Roday even directed this one!

Season 7: 100 Clues & Right Turn or Left for Dead. 100 Clues was my favorite of the season with an honorable mention to Right or Left. 100 won me over the second Christopher Loyd said "Great scott!" I could not leave out Right or Left because this one was so different from any other episode and it pretty much ripped my heart out!

Season 8: Lock, Stock, Some Smoking Barrels and Burton Guster's Goblet of Fire: Psych in London + Harry Potter?! You've got this nerd sold. Runner up is the season finale with Shawn proposes to Julia. What a sweet way to end the series.

Ok PSYCH-O's what were your favorite episodes!!!?? And I am sure we are ALL counting down the days till The Psych Movie December 7th!  I am so excited that Zachary Levi is going to be in it too!!!
I'll see you there!
