Disney Mug Tuesday- R2D2 Mug

I recently got some new mugs from the Disney store and one that I am most proud about is this R2D2 mug. I have seen this mug mug floating around Instagram the past couple of months and I have not been able to find it. Being the Star Wars fan that I am I kept looking and it finally came available the other week to by.

My favorite thing about this mug is the not only does it look like R2D2 but it holds a lot of coffee. This is good cause this morning I am having one of those “I must have coffee NOW” moments.

I am a huge Star Wars fan and I really thing Disney buying them was the greatest thing. Next April I am running The Dark Side Half Marathon. I registered last month and I need to make my reservations soon.

Anyways, Happy Disney Mug Tuesday!

Happy Star Wars Day!

Happy Star Wars Day Everyone!!!

Today is a really cool day for all Star Wars fans. Its the day of the year where we really show why Star Wars is cool. If only I could get my wife to see it. She hates it and kind of leaves me to explore the galaxy far far away.

I was not around when the original Star Wars came out but I do remember watching it with my dad at home and when it was released in the theaters before the prequel trilogy came out. It became a tradition to see the newest movie with my dad and we even would sit and watch the originals ever now and then on weekends.  Its hard to believe the original Star Wars is going to be 40 years old this year.

Since my dad passed away I have tried to keep the Star Wars love alive. I went and saw The Force Awakens when it came out by myself but it was like he was sitting beside me. He would have loved the new trilogy.  I know he would be really excited for The Last Jedi. I must say that Disney was the best thing that ever happened to the Star Wars franchise.

Of course this year brought us to not so good news with the death of Carrie Fisher. She was a culture icon and was very funny both on and off screen according to those who knew her. She was a real joy to watch.

I have incorporated Star Wars in everything. I drink coffee out of my stormtrooper mug, wear my droid socks, and I even decorated my car in some cool Star Wars decals.

The coolest thing I did this year was go to Disney World and go to Hollywood Studios and visit some of the cool Star Wars stuff they had there.

The year I have decided that for the year 2018 I will be participating in The Star Wars- The Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend in Disney World! Super excited to not only do my first Disney race, but to running with other Star Wars fans. Its going to be a good time.

I hope every Star Wars fan enjoys the day and always… Let the force be with you!

Happy Thursday!

The Force Was Strong On Sunday!

As many of you know and did in fact celebrate it, this past Sunday was Star Wars Day! Yes I feel my inner geek coming out as I am typing. I actually forgot like I do every year. I blame my kid. My dad actually reminded me on Friday when he came over to the house to see K-Dub.

So what was one to do on such an awesome, not-so-real holiday? Watch Star Wars of course.

The only problem was that I had a lot of stuff to do on Sunday and could not get to my favorite of the six movies, which is of course Return of the Jedi! I had a party to throw for BrittWhitFun’s grandma(which we call Nana). I also had to do some house cleaning. By the time I got upstairs I was exhausted.

I popped the DVD in and hit play and just like that, I was in a galaxy far far away. I saw my favorite parts like the big speed chase through the ewok infested forest and then something crazy happened.

I woke up and the movie menu was playing. I had fallen asleep through the last half of the movie. I felt bad. Maybe next year I will do a better job of remembering and make a plan to have a Star Wars movie marathon at the house. I might even dress K-Dub up as Yoda. That would be cool.

Although my Star Wars Day was a bust, check out these awesome families and how they celebrated Star Wars Day!
