My birthday was yesterday. I have always loved my birthday but I feel like as I get older, they kind of fade into the background. I miss my mom making a big deal out of everything I do when I was younger, I miss my locker being decorated by my friends when I was in middle school, and I miss skipping all my classes in college and watching a bunch of TV in bed.
I bet someday I’m going to miss being childless and having time to do little things like my Star Wars blog, haha. So maybe I should just enjoy this.
I’m due in a month and half, by the way…kind of cray cray, right? I went to an ultrasound last week and they said my little girl is going to be small and has long legs – just like me! I was a little baby with really long legs too.
She does have a few Star Wars things, a cute BB-8 dress and and Ewok onesie along with a crocheted Yoda hat and leg warmers. My boppy pillow also has a Star Wars cover…the room is not Star Wars themed though. I’m trying my best to let her decide what she will like and dislike and not force Star Wars on her but there’s only so much I can do since my whole life is Star Wars. She is going to be brainwashed to some extent. 😉
Yes – I’m one year away from the big 3-0! That’s me yesterday getting my cake (I’ve had a major craving for anything with fruit lately so I got a fruit tart instead of cake).
I decided to take a look back and see what memorable events happened in 1987 with Star Wars. Good thing Wookieepedia has a whole page devoted to it.
- 10 year anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope.
- Star Tours opens in Disneyland.
- Star Wars 10th anniversary convention held in LA. The only Star Wars convention pre-Celebrations.
- Richard Marquand dies in September. RIP.
- The first Star Wars Sourcebook is published.
It’s strange to think that next year is the 40th anniversary of A New Hope. 40 years since that movie came out and changed so many of our lives…I’m still hoping my little girl will be born on May 25th, the same date that ANH was released in 1977. I think that would be quite fitting.
