Top Seven Postsecrets of the Day

Star Wars Celebration - Day Two

By day two of the Star Wars Celebration, we were old pros.
We headed to the convention all ready for action.
Wahoo! We were excited.
Ran into Chewbacca on my way inside.
Then saw R2-Kitty inside. So cute!
To complete the trilogy, I also saw Yoda!
Keith ran into some scary guy.
We saw a beachgoing Stormtrooper.
Then I decided to get into the cosplay action.
Including Leia braids!
I tried it with my hair tucked in, but Keith preferred the pink hair to show through.
Cheesing out in the Milennium Falcon.
Pow pow!
Posing with the new set.
Help us!
This might be our fave picture of all.
Are these the droids you're looking for?
Panoramic view!
Keith with a life-sized version of the Darth Vader toy.
Cool backdrop.
Ewoks are our friends! Super fun time!

Pinky's Fandance - Jeremy Bulloch

Before we met Mark and Carrie, we "practiced" our picture taking skills with Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett in the Star Wars movies.
We'd actually done a show with Jeremy a few years ago, but never got the picture then. We have a funny story about him catching us in a fight and schooling me on the elevator. Hmmph. Anyway.... Nice to see him again!

Hottie Alert

Last night we were playing around with Keith's camera to get some new headshots done.
Here are a few of my faves. Hot stuff!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Thursday Edition

Hello and welcome to Thursday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Hey Beth, we can see through your shirt.
Hey Jena, we can see through your dress.
Hey Dianna, if you're going to go to an event wrapped like a present, maybe comb your hair?
Hey Less Dogg, I love you. You are hysterical.
Hey fugs, Goodwill called. They'd like their clothes back.

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

Tina & Lani's California Reception

Don't worry, there are still plenty of pics from the Star Wars convention to share, but I wanted to also post some pictures from the beautiful California wedding reception we attended this weekend for our dear friends Tina and Lani. Loyal readers may recall we attended their wedding in Hawaii in December; but this reception was for those who couldn't make it to Hawaii (as well as for those of us who did). 
I was super excited to see my good friend, Katrina, whose been one of my nearest and dearest since we were in Junior High.
Actually, 99% of these people I've known that long - we're a tight group!
I love this picture!
Allycat's photobomb is the best.
The happy couple.
With the beautiful bride.
Me and Kat showing off our cookies. :) Great day!

Pinky's Fandance - Mark Hamill & Carrie Fisher

The thing I was most excited about during the Star Wars Celebration was the chance to meet both Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill (aka the Skywalker twins). I mean, how often do you get a chance to be photographed with them together?!?!
We actually planned our days pretty perfectly - the first day we got a lay of the land, got a few photos with cast members, and figured out what we wanted to do the next day. Then when we came back for day two, we felt a lot more confident on what we were doing. Plus, we went during the first two days which were a lot less crowded - definitely a must. So much fun! We were dying when this picture was taken - we were SO excited! I think we screamed after it was over. So cool.

Star Wars Celebration - Day One

As I'm not really a big convention-going girl, I really had no idea what to expect from the Star Wars Celebration held at the Anaheim Convention Center this past weekend.
I'd gotten discount tickets from work and thought Keith would really enjoy it (since we all know Star Wars is totally his thing). Initially he tried to tell me that he didn't need to go, but I insisted and I think we're both stoked for that now.
Heading into the show, we met a new friend. My selfie skills were NOT on point and I cut off my face. FAIL.
I loved the artwork on the entrance banner.
Our 4-day passes (we only went two - they were cheaper than paying for individual days. Go figure).
Keith posing with an R2-D2 car.
Keith got to see Felix Silla who not only played one of the Ewoks, but was Cousin Itt on The Addams Family and worked with Keith's grandfather, Jackie.
Legos are fun!
How cute is this shirt? It's got light sabers on it AND it glows in the dark!
The force is strong with this one.
Photobombed by Jabba!
My fave part? All the pink!
Even a pink R2!
This sign cracked us up.
One of the many cool photo op places.
Keith posing with the Star Wars Rebels....
