Star Wars Movie Night: The Force Awakens!

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Teal loop. Today we are sharing fun ideas for a Star Wars themed movie night.

Last Saturday night, my wife, daughter, her boyfriend, and I sat down to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens via our iTunes library and our Apple TV.  For Sophie and Joseph, this movie was the first movie they ever saw together when we saw it a little over a year ago in the theater.  For me, this was the first Star Wars movie that I actually saw in the theater (unless you count the animated Clone Wars movie some years back). For all of us, it really was just a good opportunity to sit down, enjoy a good movie, and eat some snacks.

I had it all planned out. We had talked beforehand, and Sophie thought Light Saber Lollipops sounds really cool! I was thinking rock candy made into the shape of light sabers would be a neat way to make them at home. Then, I found out that it takes about 5 days to make rock candy. There went that idea. So then I went onto Pinterest and found some really creative snacks that really were just a play on words. Snacks like these (which you can check out in great detail at this Pinterest page):

  • 7 Leia Dip
  • Wookie Cookies
  • Jar Jar Links in a Blanket
  • Obi-Wan Kabob-ies
  • and many more!

To be honest, though, I’m just not as creative as my friends Lynn and Camille are, and not having any young children at the house (and not celebrating a birthday for that matter), the whole creative snack foods ideas kind of went the way of Han Solo at the hands of Kylo Ren…which you can see further down in this Lego mock up.

I’m hoping that my post isn’t as bad as this crashed Star Destroyer…of course, I leave that up to all of you!

Still, I really do like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and I’m glad that I’ve added it to our library. While my post may not feature quite the crafty creative spin that my friends at Always Moving Mommy and Sparks of Magic likely will, I hope you have enjoyed my post. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, well, I’m sorry for the spoiler. If you have, perhaps you will think about watching it again in the comfort of your own home. If you do come up with some of these creative snacks, drop me a line or a comment and let me know how they turned out!

Dream Disney Scents — Your Disney Scentsy Connection!

Dream Disney Scents

Dream Disney Scents is the name of my Scentsy Site! Let’s bring together our love of Disney and the love of Scentsy!

Dream Disney Scents

By Mike Ellis.

Hello everyone!  As part of the evolution of our site, I have decided to take on the roll of becoming a Scentsy Consultant!  My niece’s Leslie and Stephanie are both consultants, and after talking with them, I think that I can bring together two very well known brands — Disney and Scentsy — and combine them to help you all out even more!

Picture this, if you will: You know that I have my Disney fan blog, and that I am a travel agent with Pixie Vacations.  Because of this connection, you come to our blog, and reach out to me to help you plan your dream vacation to Walt Disney World, where you want to stay at the Beach Club Resort.  We plan your trip, it is full of a lifetime of memories for you, your family, your children, and you know that you will want to remember them for years to come.

Well, with Scentsy, you can do just that!  You can get the Key Largo Nightlight warmer, couple it with the Beach Scentsy Bar, and voila!  Whenever you smell that wonderful aroma, your mind takes you back to your Disney resort, and you remember strolling out on the Boardwalk near sundown, enjoying the view of the lights over the water, the sound of the music coming from Jellyrolls while you, your husband, and your children make your way to Beaches & Cream to enjoy some delicious ice cream!

If you are interested in all of this, I invite you to take a look at my Scentsy personal website, called Dream Disney Scents!  I have a launch party starting up tomorrow, but you can still take a look at the site and see what piques your interest!  Thank you in advance for taking a look!

With all that being said, I think I’ve got to make my own Disney plans — and also think about which scents will go best with the resort we choose!  I’ll see you…at Disney, and at Scentsy!
