Finding Fantasy Friday: Comic Con 2015

Have you ever been in one room where Harry Potter meets Stars Wars who meets Marvel who meets Anime? If you said yes, then you know exactly where I'm going with this. No, not Halloween. COMIC CON. 

Comic Con is a place you can truly step away from reality for some time. Watch where you walk because you may bump into a wookie or a storm trooper or the Green Goblin. Fans dress up like it's Halloween. Of course, not everyone does, if that's not your thing.

Why am I talking about this? Because someone you know and follow will be signing at the New Orleans Comic Con. That's right. This girl. Yours truly. I'll be there all weekend January 9-11, 2015. I'm totally fangirling. Celebs like Paul Wesley (The Hottie Stefan from TVD), Mark McGrath (I grew up listening to Sugar Ray
), some of the cast from Charmed, and the Bella Twins just to name a few will be there. How exciting!

Although I've been wanting to go to Comic Con for years, it'll be the first time I've ever been, and it's only the second time one has been hosted in New Orleans. Even though I'll be stuck behind my table, I'm so excited to be a part of it, and I hope this is the beginning of getting to do many across the country. I'm deep into planning for an awesome display for you guys. If you have ideas, leave me a comment. I'd love to hear them.

That being said, you better get your tickets. Go HERE for tickets. To see the amazing line-up of stars that will be there, check THIS out. If you can't get to New Orleans, I'll understand. Not. Just joking. But maybe there's a Comic Con near you that you can jump into a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Realm. Go HERE for more Comic Cons. I hope to see you there.

Lots of <3,

Finding Fantasy Friday: Set it in the French Quarter

For Mother's Day, we decided to spend it in the French Quarter in New Orleans. It's only a little over an hour drive from our home and one of my favorite places in the world.

There is no other city in the world like New Orleans; it's a gem. Growing up near the city, I took for granted how truly great it is.

With the hype from Hollywood in New Orleans, such as Treme, NCIS: New Orleans, and The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, I thought I would write about the fantastical elements in this city.
