Day 2 of the new blog and we are already off to a running start!
There are a few things that you may not know about our family. We love road trips and we love Star Wars. And lucky for you, I have a story about both!
First, Star Wars.
A couple of weeks ago, Matt and I were driving home when we came across a brand new comic book store. As soon as he saw the neon Batman sign in the store window, he squealed and almost hit a fire hydrant pulling into the parking lot. After we perused a while, we found a table that had different shaped ice cube trays. Currently in our freezer, we have an R2D2 ice cube tray and a Stormtrooper head ice cube tray. So, when we saw the silicone mold shaped as Han Solo frozen in Carbonite, we could not resist.
When we got it home, we couldn't figure out what to make in it, after all, it's HUGE! We made ice, big deal, after it froze, we ended letting it melt in the sink cause we had no use for it.
Then we made jello in it...meh...it was alright. It didn't really hold the shape and we're not big jello eaters, so it sort of went to waste as well.
Then, inspiration struck and had a brilliant idea!!!!
A couple giant Hershey bars and some wafer cookies...Voila! A giant KitKat bar in the shape of frozen Han Solo!
Matt had a Superbowl luncheon at work and I sent this, it was a BIG hit!
Now, Road trips.
This Thanksgiving, we drove down to Florida to spend the holiday with my sister, Erin and her Family. Being, the King of Roadside Attractions, Matt planned the whole trip.
We joked that we were going to find Honey Boo Boo's house and stopping by to Redneckonize with the whole Honey Boo Boo family.
Little did I know, Matt took it to heart. He figured out where they lived by watching the show and Google mapping the area.
So, on our second day of our journey, we stopped at a gas station that just happened to be 50 yards away from Honey Boo Boo's house. While Matt pumped gas, Emerson and I hid behind the car and peered at the house. There was a pick-up truck out front with a lawn chair next to it. There was someone sitting inside the pick up bed, but we couldn't see who it was. All of a sudden, there she was...Mama June!!!! We got in the car and drove by twice before we decided to pull up and talk to them.
It turns out that they were selling t-shirts out of the truck. All proceeds went to Stand Up to Bullying and were locally made. We had to buy one!!
