12 Days of Star Wars

Nerds!! There are only 11 days left till our eyes behold the next installment in the Star Wars saga. (10 if you plan on going on Thursday night!) This Star Wars is going to have a decidedly different flavor than the 7 that have preceded it. There will be no scrawl at the beginning ofContinue reading “12 Days of Star Wars”

Something Magical Happened, But I Can’t Show You

Last week can only be described as amazing, soul-refreshing and down right exciting. You already saw my solo adventures at not one, but all four of Disney World’s theme parks. But here’s the part I didn’t show you. I actually can’t show you. See…my phone died right after I ate what looked like a delicious MickeyContinue reading “Something Magical Happened, But I Can’t Show You”

Lizzie’s Solo Ride

I LOVE Disney. If you’ve been reading me for any length of time, you know this. That being said, I’ve never done Disney on my own before. I’ve always gone with friends or family. And the day is usually very mapped out. Everyone has their top picks and there is lots to cover in aContinue reading “Lizzie’s Solo Ride”

Follow Friday

I don’t know if you feel this way. But sometimes I feel like there’s so much noise out there on social media these days. It seems like everyone is trying to be heard. Me included. But you, gentle reader, have included my voice in the playlist of your life. And for that I’m grateful. I’mContinue reading “Follow Friday”

The Force is Awake

Now that I’ve see Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens for the 6th time, I feel like I can accurately and comprehensively share with you my thoughts and feelings and theories about it all. But before you go any further, let me offer you two warnings: The 1st is the obligatory SPOILER WARNING. BecauseContinue reading “The Force is Awake”

Leia, It’s Cold Outside

If God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers was this nerd’s answer to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (and if you missed it…CLICK HERE) then Leia, It’s Cold Outside would be my answer to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. I wonder what could possibly be coming tomorrow to a YouTube near you!Continue reading “Leia, It’s Cold Outside”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)

Long have I considered Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back to be my favorite Star Wars movie. But this time around, I have to be  honest…Return of the Jedi really pulled out in front. That’s not to say that I don’t consider TESB to be the best of the Star Wars films, becauseContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)”

Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)

I’m not on a mission to convince you that the prequels are worth watching. I think that argument is ridiculous. We all have our feelings and opinions on the matter. I personally like them. They are deeply entrenched in nostalgia from my high school and early college years and yes…there are bad patches, but whenContinue reading “Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)”
