So if you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know by now that I’m a super nerd.  Especially when it comes to sci-fi.  The first Christmas that my husband and I were married,  he actually purchased me 8 Yoda related items.  Yes, you read that right…EIGHT!  Perhaps he went a little overboard??  Perhaps.

When I was still teaching school, I had shelves in my classroom dedicated to Star Wars paraphernalia.  Yes, that was plural, SHELVES.   As far as I’m concerned…Star Wars=AWESOME.  If I could live in an alternate universe, that would pretty much be the one I would pick, but only if I could be a Jedi.  I mean what would the point be if I couldn’t use the force???  I’d even be willing to don the famous gold bikini if it meant I too could be a Skywalker.  DREAM. COME. TRUE.

Unfortunately for me and every little boy under 13 in America, that ain’t gonna happen:(

So we CAN’T really use the force or travel to Tatooine, but we do get a very special day!!!  May the 4th.

You might be saying “May the 4th?  Like the day before Cinco de Mayo?”  ummm…no.  May the 4th like, “May the 4th be with you!”  (If you are still unsure, say it aloud.)

Heck, yes….Tomorrow is Star Wars Day!!!!  So in honor of all you geeks out there like me, I have compiled some of my favorite Star Wars Party Ideas…. check it out:May4th pic

Celebrate the world of George Lucas (before he sold it all to Disney) with something super awesome….and be sure to tell everyone you see “May the 4th be with you always.”  You know I will be!

And if you happen to run into me at Disneyland (because that is where I will be), don’t be surprised if I speak to you like Yoda.  “Favorite day of the year it is!”
