New Series Coming This Fall!

Couples (married, engaged, or just dating) like to take road trips together. It's a good way to find out who's better at directions and it's so much fun!

So this fall, I have decided to roll out a 2-week series called "Fun Dates on Road Trips"! Twice a week, I will post date ideas depending on the type adventure you're taking. I won't go by city or state because being a Texan, there is still a big swath of the state I have yet to discover so it wouldn't be very helpful for either of us.

So for example, let's say you and your sweetheart are heading to a historical city but you're not sure what you want to do. I would suggest eating at a place that is not only part of the history, but can tell you more about it. In search of as something where you can go completely nerdy? Find an area that has been featured in movies or even go play laser tag!

In fact, the boyfriend and I will be heading to Dallas this fall and I am hoping to plan a full day of fun that doesn't require going to the touristy areas. I already have a few ideas, but it all depends on when we actually go, as Dallas tends to have different things going on during the fall and winter than any other season.

We're also looking for fun places to eat! For my fellow Texans, do you have any suggestions?

Hey, It's Okay!

Last time on "Hey, It's Okay", we talked about movies, laundry, and total geekiness. This time, we're still going to go a bit geeky but not totally.

What is perfectly a-ok with me this time?

It's okay...

... To hurt your wrist going to play Pokemon Go. (I was walking onto a curb when part of it crumbled under my foot, and to keep myself from completely falling to the ground, I put out my right hand. Well, it may not be 100% okay to hurt yourself, but my wrist is okay, if that counts.)

... To get excited when a t-shirt you've been expecting comes in, and you put it on the minute you have it in your hands.

... To get feel happy when you get a new phone just because someone cared enough to buy you one when your current one was on its last legs.

... To be tired of rain after 3 days straight.

... To go fishing late at night after already putting on your jammies. (When my boyfriend said he was going fishing at 11pm and I jokingly told him to take me, he said sure and you better believe I changed so I could go!)

What's not bothering you this week that normally would?

My geeky wardrobe is complete! #TextualTees

I was not compensated for this post. I received KEEP CALM & DON'T BLINK and I WANT YOU FOR THE EMPIRE t-shirts to review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Your experience may differ.

Never Trust An Atom They Make Up Everything
Last week, I posted about geeky outfit ideas to end your summer. I forgot to mention that fandom t-shirts are my go-to clothing for showing how proud of a geek and  a nerd I am. I have owned Karate Kid, Star Wars, Revenge of the Nerds, and tons of other fandom-related t-shirts over the years. (Yes, I wear my geekiness where everyone can see it!)

But if you want high-quality geeky and humorous t-shirts that aren't super expensive, you have to check out Textual Tees! They have tons of shirts where you can indulge into what makes your funny or geeky bone happy.

For those that are into gaming, you might be interested to know that they have Pokemon Go t-shirts! Are you on Team Valor, Mystic, or Instinct? (I'm Team Valor, by the way.) Nintendo, Legend of Zelda, and plenty of other game references are available.

Team Valor T-Shirt
Favorite movies, shows, and games get turned into funny parodies with their Pop Culture section. Minions around a TARDIS? Uh, yes, please!

What makes Textual Tees a great place to get all your geeky, nerdy, and funny t-shirts is that most start at only $6! I kid you not. You can stock up on all of your favorite fandoms for a fraction of the price you might find other places. (Hoodies and other non-tshirt items may cost more.)

So if you're looking for totally nerdy t-shirts that won't break the bank, be sure to head on over to Textual Tees. You won't be disappointed. I promise.

Be sure to follow Textual Tees on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

You can purchase Keep Calm And Don't Blink and I Want YOU For The Empire starting at $6.


Just to warn you, I am a major Whovian. In fact, me and the guy I'm dating will either have Whovian nerd-offs or talk about Doctor Who often. I have lots of Doctor Who stuff, but I didn't have a Who t-shirt. So when I found out that I would be working with Textual Tees, I knew the first shirt I would choose would be a Doctor Who t-shirt.

I chose Keep Calm & Don't Blink, since The Weeping Angels happen to be one of the most feared Doctor Who monsters. (Here's more information for those don't know about it.) The t-shirt is so soft and comfortable. It fits absolutely perfectly, and falls just below my hips. The printing is so high-quality, it won't be fading for a while. Plus, there are a lot of Whovians in my area, and I've been stopped once so far to talk about Doctor Who.

I was also to choose another shirt, and since I love Star Wars (thanks to growing up on the originals), I Want YOU For The Empire seemed like a logical decision. Once again, it was so soft and comfortable. The imaging is GREAT! Darth Vader looks great, doesn't it? At the convenience store, one guy asked for an application to join. Who knew the Dark Side was so popular in my town?

I plan on getting a lot more, since I need more Doctor Who shirts, and I've been eyeing that Team Valor t-shirt.

Do you wear geeky shirts? What's your favorite one to wear?

Fall #AhSleep4U Naturally!

I was compensated for this post. I received a FREE product to review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Your experience may differ. Consult with a physician before starting any new medications or regimen.

I suffer from bouts of insomnia. Either my brain won't shut up or I just have trouble not only falling asleep, but staying asleep.

Originally developed by MHF Health founder, Dr. Tracy Sands, AhSleep was meant to help patience in addictive recovery treatment who suffered from insomnia. Because of its success, it is now being offered to the public for the first time!

Most people with constant sleep problems can be critically low in the hormones and brain neurotransmitters that help regulate normal sleep. AhSleep is formulated specifically to address the body's chemical shortages to help reduce difficulty falling and staying asleep.

All-natural, non-addictive, and safe to take with most prescriptions (check with a doctor first), AhSleep is a great alternative to traditional sleep medications that often cause that annoying "hangover" feeling the next morning.

Who's ready to get a better night's sleep? I am!

Be sure to follow AhSleep on Facebook.

Like I said, I suffer from bouts of insomnia. Most of the time, however, I just have trouble falling and staying asleep. So I end up waking up at 4 in the morning and that only leaves me a few more hours of sleep before I have to get up. I am so tired in the morning, I feel like a zombie.

I've tried OTC sleep medications, but the "hangover" the next morning made me realize that it wasn't worth it so I decided to just forget OTC sleep medicines altogether, and go back to sleeping crappy.

I was a little apprehensive about trying AhSleep, wondering if it would give me a sleep hangover.

The short answer? Nope! I fell asleep within 30 minutes of taking it and slept beautifully. No hangover in the morning, and I felt so rested. As I continued taking it, I noticed that my body started to get back on a regular sleep schedule. I no longer wake up feeling exhausted, and I generally sleep through the night (minus a few nights).

Yeah, I like AhSleep. A lot.
