The Re-Awakening of Anakin and the Process of Forgiveness

Hello all!!

I am pleased to announce that my latest blog over on The Cantina Cast is now live!!  This one is a personal one, as it indirectly chronicles not only the lives of Anakin and Padme but also the lives of my husband and myself.  If you are able to stop by, any feedback is appreciated (either on The Cantina Cast site or here).

Until next month...May The Force Be With You!!

A New Beginning

Hello everyone!  I wanted to take a moment and apologize for the inactivity on here over the past year.  Real life quite often takes precedence over any aspect of our "pretend" lives (i.e. blogging, costuming, etc).  However, I am really excited to announce a new journey upon which I have embarked thanks to a good friend of mine:  I am a Featured Blogger for a new Star Wars related pod cast site called The Cantina Cast!!  We are just now getting things started, but I will be publishing a new blog on the site once a month from here on out.  As I do this, the blog here will more than likely take a bigger backseat than it has already.  I will post little things here and there, but I will leave my deeper, more thought-provoking blogs for the Cantina Cast.  I will link to my entries as they are published, so you can keep up with me there if you are interested.  For now, I will leave you with this link to my first blog with The Cantina Cast.

Until next time...May The Force Be With You All!!

Celebration Anaheim--2015!!

I realize that I am a couple of weeks late in posting something about the next Star Wars Celebration, but, like always, things have been hectic around here.  When the next Celebration was announced two weeks ago, my husband and I initially thought "there is no way we are going to be able to go to this one," mostly because of it being out in California, during the school year.  However, after thinking about it for a few days, we started talking and realized that, although our son would be in school at this time, he would only be in preschool, where it is not as critical for him to be present as it is when he is older.  So, as long as we are able to save enough money and nothing else comes up between now and husband, my son (who will be 5 years old =O ), and I will be heading to Anaheim, California in April of 2015, with plans to spend a few extra days to visit Disneyland and some other attractions in the area!!  When tickets and hotel rooms went on sale this past week, I was able to secure us a room for 10 nights...although the length of our stay may change before then.  We still need to get our convention passes, but there is definitely still time for that.

Now, in addition to saving money and planning for the trip, I will be working on plans for our costumes ;)  I definitely have some in mind for myself...some of which I have already started working and some of which I have on a "plan to do" list.  My husband would like for us to start working on his Wookiee Warrior costume so that we have it ready by then; in addition to his Bail Organa costume that I made for him last year.  Finally, for my son I am planning on a X-Wing pilot, an Episode I Anakin, a farm boy Luke, and possibly something like Boba/Jango Fett or Ewok/Jawa or something else, all depending on whether he can tolerate wearing a "bucket."  He will definitely be introduced to Star Wars by the time the convention rolls around, so he may even have an opinion on what he would like to wear ;)

I do not know when I will be able to post any non-convention or non-costuming entries...but I do hope to have something out soon!  All of this, of course, depends on how crazy things around here get with my teaching starting back up, the possibility of a new job (where I can actually use my advanced degree/certification), and planning/sewing.

Until my next entry...May the Force Be With You All!!

May the Fourth Be With You!!

Hello everyone!!  I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy Star Wars Day...and, May the Fourth Be With You...Always!!

Also, I have a few ideas for new blog entries, so I hope to be posting them soon as things settle down here a bit and I start feeling better (been sick for the past week, but am starting to feel a bit better since being started on some antibiotics and using my inhaler more frequently)!!  Until then, I wish you all the best in wherever your adventures take you.
