Finally, it is time I actually return to my beloved Universal Studios as well as Halloween Horror Nights. Plans are booked and rapidly approaching. I’m drooling over the food and drink menus. I’m desperately trying to make sure I pack everything.
So let’s take a minute to think about my most anticipated houses at this year’s event.
I’ve talked about the previous times I’ve attended the Superman Celebration ( in 2017 and 2018), and it was really exciting to finally head back to Metropolis this year after being away for so long. And – the weekend of Superman Day! So it was perfect.
You can watch a quick video of the trip here.
I’m a collector, and I really love looking at the collections of others. That’s one of the many reasons I love to visit Metropolis, Illinois and see the massive collection of Superman stuff inside the Super Museum.
Are you ready to live out your childhood dreams?
Heading to New York soon? Or maybe you’re already a resident? Well, if you’re a Batman fan, you’re in luck.
Opening to the public for previews June 8th, this immersive experience promises to let you feel what it’s like to be in the boots of the World’s Greatest Detective.
If you’ve been around for a while, you may remember when I went to Wizard World St. Louis every single year. It was my biggest local con.
You may also remember, if you’ve been around a while, that in 2017 I made a solo trip to Fan Expo Canada and absolutely loved that con.
So imagine my joy when Wizard World was taken over…. by Fan Expo. My mind was blown.
To say I was excited for Planet Comicon 2022 is a severe understatement. This is one of my absolute favorite cons to attend, and I had a pretty packed, planned out schedule for the entirety of our trip – not just the con itself.
If you missed our trip last year: Planet Comicon 2021

It has been a wild few years, but cons are making a comeback, and with it – people are venturing to said cons.
Whether you’ve never been to a con, or you’ve been to twenty – there’s always new things to learn. So I’m going to share with you some of the tips, tricks, and generalized advice I’ve absorbed after several years of con-going.
From the event page:
“We all love a good mystery. On Feb. 4, join us to solve a mystery at the Saint Louis Science Center! The evening will include a building-wide Clue-style mystery game, trivia, a feature presentation on the science behind solving crimes, and educational activities that will require the use of your “little grey cells.” End the evening with a screening of an Agatha Christie film favorite.”
The week of Christmas, my nieces needed to do a bit of last minute shopping, so I decided it was a good time to check out some local businesses we could support, as well as giving you all a new place to check out if you’re in the area.
So, we went to The Factory in Farmington, Missouri to check out Aesop’s Treasury.
