I Survived Another Star Wars Anniversary!

Well, I survived my evening with Star Wars...oh, and with the hubby, too. :o) In all honesty, we both really had a great time. And with even more honesty, this is probably one anniversary that I'll always remember...even it did revolve around Star Wars. The concert far exceeded my expectations, but I have to admit that I really love the music from all the movies anyway.

Alex was convinced that it would be okay to take a camera to the show, even though they're normally not allowed at arena events. As soon as we got in the lobby, there were tons of people already there looking at the exhibits that were set up for everyone. And to our great surprise as well, we even got our tickets bumped up. Our seats were originally much higher up, and when we were on our way up to that level, they had the area blocked off. Then, they switched out our tickets which was awesome because we ended up on the first row of a different section! I don't know about you but I absolutely hate sitting behind someone, especially if they can't sit still!

Oh, and one other really cool thing.... Anthony Daniels, the guy who played C-3PO in the movies narrated the entire concert. He would provide a small introduction to each song, and once he even broke out in character as C-3PO. Too cool!

No lie, the whole night was awesome. If this ever comes around to your city, and you've got a die-hard Star Wars family member or friend, you'd be their best friend for life if you suggested this event. Even for someone like me that is not a fan....I had a great time! :o)

Pretty good view, huh? :o)

Alex and a Storm Trooper (?) - he said later that he used the Force to steal his weapon...crazy hubby of mine!


  1. Hahahaha it looks like you guys had a blast! Thank ya for sharing! :-)

  2. You got an award from me!

  3. We saw this show when it came to Tulsa. I loved it! It took me back to so many fun moments in the Star Wars series.

  4. I'm sure I would have enjoyed that concert - as a child growing up with the original trilogy I have a soft spot for that culture. My hubby and I went and saw the funniest One Man Star Wars show where the guy reenacted the entire original 3 movies in about an hour doing all the sound effects and playing all the characters himself. Has your hubby seen that yet? Maybe a goal for another anniversary ;0)

  5. Hmmm....the one man Star Wars show sounds interesting, but do I dare suggest it? Maybe only if we can go see it at ANY other time of the year besides our anniversary! :o)


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
