Boba Fett Cookies, Jamba, and More Love


What does every Mommy Fett need for the kitchen? Spring-loaded Star Wars cookie cutters from Williams-Sonoma, of course.


In other news, summer has officially begun, as we hit Jamba Juice today. Buster and I split a 16 ounce cup, and Q-ster managed to finish one on his own. The boys definitely inherited their father’s liquid capacity, not mine. I'm still loving the Little Brother and Big Brother baseball caps sent by Grandma N.

We also enjoyed watching Ms. Redowa’s dance troupe at their kid-friendly outdoor concert. (She and her husband had the Purple Wedding, featuring newts and trampolines, for you longtime readers.)

It felt fabulous to be out of the mode of comparing execution with previous gigs, thinking about critique and feedback, and instead just having fun with their clever and creative dances. Here’s a moment where they imitate the standard Silicon Valley work day (at the computer) and a different number where they integrated a ribbon segment.


At the end of the show, one of the lead dancers was greeted by her boyfriend, who proposed in front of the whole crowd. Mr. Redowa, who was running sound, did a nice fade-in of “Love Story” as she said yes.

(Photo as he was taking the ring box from his pocket, just prior to kneeling most romantically.)

So, inquiring minds want to know if you bought the cookie cutters, or just admired them and moved along. It's one thing to recreate the shapes, but that icing!

Love the cookies!

I love being witness to wedding proposals. Except at sporting events. Some places are just not wedding proposal-appropriate, I say.

Wow, you actually made those cookies. I first thought it was a promo shot, then I noticed the glass that contained the milk.

They're just pictures from the Williams Sonoma catalog - I don't have the hand skills for that kind of icing detail!

Oh, my.

We were just at Star Wars weekend in Disney. We found Star Wars molds. I'm thinking that combined with those cookie cutters, we'd have ourselves a party...
