The 4th Will Be With You, Always

It's Star Wars Day!!
Are you excited? I know I am. I'm celebrating all weekend! I'm actually more excited about this than May 2-4 weekend! Sure, long weekends are awesome, but May the 4th only happens once a year.

Star offers these cute e-cards that you can send out to those you love. And since I love you guys, here they are

Ok, ok. So I didn't get this out in time yesterday. To be fair, I was caught up with my dashing rogue. It's not often I get to spend Star Wars Day with someone else. So it was super awesome that he was as stoked about doing SW things as I was!

We picked up the first 3 seasons of The Clone Wars. He's only seen a few episodes and we decided it would be fun to watch them together.  Over the weekend, we made it half way through the 1st season.
We went out walking through the city with some friends and saw lots of people wearing SW shirts. Mine also got noticed quite a bit. It's nice to get a friendly compliment or a head nod from a fellow geek. I even got to fan-girl with another geeky girl wearing a Han Solo shirt. She loved my shirt, I loved her shirt... it was geek at first sight.

I've never really made SW themed food before, other than desserts, so we set about trying to make some fun meals over the weekend.

I mixed up some Blue Milk, so we could make Banthamilk pancakes.

 And whipped out my Williams-Sonoma pancake molds.

 Ok, so the yellow of the egg and the off white of the pancake mix turned them green, but it was pretty fitting as far as Yoda was concerned.

The pancake molds are a little hard to use, but the more I made, the better they got.

Something about having a Darth Vader pancake on my Darth Vader flipper was both amusing and awesome. See, it fits so well.

We had all these brilliant plans on how to decorate out pizza to be SW-esque, but by the time we go around to making it, we forgot and made it how we normally do.
We decided afterwards that it probably looked like the stomach of a Sarlacc. 
So there you have it, Sarlacc stomach pizza...

For dessert, we tried to get a little more creative. We picked up some cookies and cream ice cream and I through together some cocoa snaps. 
I present to you;
Hoth shield generator after it's been destroyed.

Pretty awesome, huh? Yeah, I thought so too.

The other awesome thing we did this weekend, was finish off my ISO Girl outfit for the 501st and take preliminary photos. Now I just have to send them in to get approved. 
What do you think?

So how did you spend your Star Wars weekend? Did you dress up and go dancing? Did you stage an epic lightsaber battle in the park? Did you talk Star Wars to someone? Comment and let me know.

May The Force Be With You
