May the Force Be with You
Um, hello. My name is Jess. I am a not-so-closeted Star Wars fan. I may or may not own action figures (that are boxed up, thank you). I also may or may not own a Darth Vader helmet with voice changing capabilities and heavy breathing simulation. I may wear it occasionally to make crank phone calls.
About the crank calls.
Given what we'll from here on out refer to as my "condition," it should come as no surprise that I was almost salivating when I saw the Star Wars Cookie Cutters from Williams- Sonoma on Bakerella's blog a few weeks ago. I mean, salivating. I even did a little dance when I saw that she was giving away a few sets.
I cried (just a little) when I did not win one.
But you know why that doesn't matter anymore? It doesn't matter because my awesome from Amanda and her darling baby Sofie gifted me with my very own set as an early birthday present. And you know what else? They even found a Star Wars apron to go with it! An apron! Holy Tonton!
Yes, the above is an obscure reference to a fictional creature that was ridden by Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Episode IV: The Empire Strikes Back. So sue me.
I'm absolutely making myself, and Shannon, some Boba Fett cookies this weekend. Boba. Fett. Cookies. If you say it to yourself enough, you'll begin to understand the magic. Or maybe you won't. If you don't, though, that means more cookies for me!
