Star Wars Cookie Cutters!

9am. I woke up famished, so I grabbed 1/2 a grilled chicken breast while I packed my cooler. Once I get home from work, I'll have to repack as tonight is Eclipse! No gym, since I won't have time. We'll have to scramble as it is to get a good spot in line. The show starts at 12:01am, but we'll be in line by 6pm. Oy! The things we do for our children! LOL! The girls are all very excited, we're a whole family of Twilight fans. I'll be throwing together a few wraps and some snacky veggies/fruit, etc for the loooooong wait. Thankfully, there's a huge Whole Foods just across the street from the theatre and there's a big Borders Books and a Sports Authority in the same center, so if I get bored, I can always browse while the girls hold our places in line. (Maybe I'll look for some non-slide and anti-bacterial yoga mats! LOL!). I'm a little concerned, as previously these premiers were in November (chilly weather) but with temps holding steady at 112 at 8pm, this is going to be wicked hot. Much water will be consumed!

We have such odd weather here in AZ. It was 104° this morning as I sat on the back patio with my book & coffee. Thankfully, there was  hurricane force winds  a gentle breeze. :-)  I was seriously bummed when I came downstairs this morning to discover that the container of chili had been left out on the counter all night. I don't know if I forgot to put it away, or if the kids got into it later and forgot to put it back, but it's wasted now. I hate wasting food! And I had more plans for that chili! Dagnabbit! 

2:30pm. My Williams-Sonoma gift card arrived! I had done several product and recipe reviews, and this was their "Thank You"... Cool! So of course, I dashed right out to Fashion Square (nearest store)... "Star Wars Cookie Cutters, YOU ARE MINE!!"  Um. No. Out of stock. Apparently I am not the only Very Cool Person in the area, and they ran out last week. Sigh. But Wait! I jump online and YES! In Stock! Ha! MINE! My order is placed, my gift card depleted, and I am anxiously clicking the tracking link (surely they've shipped by now! It's been 5 minutes! What's taking so long??).
