It’s May the fourth, a holiday as you might say, for us Star Wars fans! Today was an exciting day in the Star Wars community: we got a new trailer for Kenobi, new behind the scenes gallery from The Book of Boba Fett, and sales on Star Wars merchandise galore! Happy, Happy day!
After work, I met up with friends for a round of mini-golf, food, and lots of fun to celebrate the day.
Now I’m winding down, watching A New Hope curled up in bed with my cats. The perfect ending to a busy, busy day!
How did you celebrate the day? Leave me a comment below!
Happy May first to all! It’s Star Wars month (although every month is Star Wars month for me)! So many excited things are happening this month including Star Wars Celebration and Kenobi! This month is Heaven for us Star Wars fans!
I finally decided on my Loungefly pick for May (I have too many choices!) I settled on a handbag that I purchased from HerUniverse a couple of years ago and thought it was so perfect for this month : Leia (obviously!)
I thought this bag was elegant just like our Princess herself!
Stay tuned! I have some very special posts coming up!
Hey everyone! I’ve waited awhile for this one! How gorgeous is this Princess Leia wallet by WristBandMania? As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to add it to my collection! The details are amazing and will go so well with my Leia Loungefly bags!
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to stop by one of my favorite collector shops in my area. And lo and behold what did I find? Princess Leia of course!
She caught my eye right away and I knew I had to add her to my collection! It crossed my mind to phone a friend to talk me out of my purchase, but luckily my friends agree with me on most of my purchases!
This particular statue is from ANewHope, my all-time favorite Star Wars movie! It also happens to my my favorite Leia look (closely followed by Hoth)!
She was a limited edition of 1000. The card of authenticity I received happened to be creased (that’s how it was packaged), but I don’t mind because I have no intention of selling her at any point!
The statue was heavier than I expected! She would make a great bookend! And I currently have her with my Star Wars books! It would be perfect with a matching Han Solo counterpart don’t you think?!?
What do you think of my newest acquisition? I absolutely love her!
Hey gang! Happy Friday! It’s been such a crazy week and am really looking forward to catching up on some reading this weekend. We’re supposed to get SNOW!!! Typical mid-west weather!
Last weekend a friend of mine came with me to check out some new tattoo studios in my area. We went to five different places! But I learned a lot and it’s so important to check out options and get a feeling for the studio and the artists who work at them!
When I got my very first tattoo, I was living in a different state. I did the same thing. Some friends and I checked out five or six different studios before I decided on the artist and studio I liked. The tattoo itself took only five minutes, but I felt comfortable with the artist. It was a small kanji symbol for strength. I ended up adding to that particular tattoo and now it’s a bigger piece on the side of my leg, which I still absolutely love. As my mom has said, “I hope you like your tattoo. You know they’re permanent, right?” No joke, that’s what she said when she first saw it!!
Since then, I’ve added more! The saying is true, once you get your first tattoo, you’ll want more!
Last weekend, I added two more! They were both done by the same artist.
That brings my tattoo count up to seven!
Do you have any tattoos? Share what tattoos you have in the comments below!
Hey everyone! It has been a crazy week with all sorts of new Star Wars information! A week ago tomorrow, the teaser trailer for Kenobi was released! Oh my goodness!! I was absolutely blown away! I screamed, I laughed, I cried…May 25th…we are getting closer and I am all for it!
The same day that the teaser trailer was released, I received my first Legacy lightsaber!!
Ever since they released images of Leia’s lightsaber from The Rise of Skywalker I’ve wanted it! Since I am not near the parks, the next best thing was shopping on Amazon. It just so happened that a seller had her lightsaber listed! And I FINALLY pulled the plug!
I am so happy that I decided to add Princess Leia’s Legacy lightsaber to my Star Wars collection! It is so gorgeous, the pictures really don’t do it justice!
But, getting a lightsaber is like getting a tattoo…now I want another one!!
Hey gang! It is looking a lot like Spring! Most of the snow here has melted and we are supposed to be in the 60’s this weekend! Finally, after a long cold and snowy winter there is some light at the end of the tunnel!
It‘s time for another edition of Friday Five!

2). Book I’ve Recently Read : Killers of the Flower Moon This book was absolutely fascinating! It’s based on true events and goes in depth exploring murders that happened on a Reservation.

Hey everyone! And welcome back to another edition of Friday five!
1). Podcast I’m Listening To: Crime Junkie. Another new podcast that I stumbled across! So fascinating! Episodes are real cases of murder, mystery, and disappearances. If you are into crime drama, I highly recommend this podcast!
2). A Guilty Pleasure: Watching The Housewives of New Jersey. How can you resist this drama? I enjoy watching these “reality” shows because it distracts me from real life…we can all use a fun and ridiculous distraction!
3). What I’m Listening To: Stevie Nicks. Stevie Nicks is my fairy godmother. IT’S STEVIE NICKS!! I love everything about her!
4). My newest purchase: The Rearmored Boba Fett helmet. MY FIRST STAR WARS HELMET! I am so excited! It looks FANTASTIC!
5). What I’m reading: The Art of The Mandalorian. This collector’s book is amazing! Full of illustrations and gorgeous concept pictures of scenes and characters from The Mandalorian season 2!
1). Podcast I’m Listening To. Morbid: A True Crime Podcast. I am OBSESSED with this podcast! I have always had a fascination with murder and mystery! And it gets my creative writing juices going! This podcast has it all : true stories, background of the crimes, outcomes, and intriguing speculations! Highly recommend!
2). Star Wars Character Who I Am Obsessed With Right Now. Okay, so I’m obsessed with so many Star Wars characters ALL THE TIME, but with the new announcement that Kenobi is coming to Disney Plus on May 25th, I have been reminded of how much I love the character and Ewan McGregor (let’s be real! 🤣) What are your thoughts on the new Kenobi poster? I LOVED IT!!
3). My Newest Funko Pop. I had pre-ordered this one months ago. I HAD TO HAVE IT! IT’S LUKE AND GROGU!! How perfect was that episode of Grogu training with Luke in The Book Of Boba Fett?!? It was my favorite! I cried during the whole episode!
4). Song I have On Repeat. “Mad World” by Tears for Fears. I have always been a Tears for Fears fan! Yes, I am a child of the ‘80s! Lately, I have been on a Tears for Fears kick and am so happy that they came out with a new album! But “Mad World” is a classic! If you haven’t listened to it, I highly recommend that you do!
5). Candle I Am Burning Right Now. I am still a huge candle fan even though I’ve been really getting into wax melts. One of my favorite small shops on Etsy has tons of Star Wars inspired fragrances and Jyn Erso is my favorite! Not only is Jyn Erso (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) one of my favorite Star Wars characters but this scent was so spot on! The candles and wax melts are 100% natural soy and beeswax. The scent for Jyn Erso consists of scents of black cardamom and amber. It smells PERFECT!
