Happy Birthday, America!! I’ve had to work a bunch this past weekend but when I’ve been off I’ve been wearing such spirited things; last night I rocked a black tank top with the American flag Rolling Stones logo, and tonight I wore a lovely Captain America top by Her Universe from her special 75th Anniversary of Captain America collection for Kohl’s. I didn’t get any cute pictures with it on; my parents and I tried to take a festive family portrait but either I looked awful while my mom looked pretty, or vice versa, or we both looked cute but then my dad’s eyes were closed. Oh well. Instead, or at least for now, here is a picture of Ashley Eckstein herself wearing the shirt I’m wearing right this minute:
She is just too awesome and adorable to handle sometimes.
Speaking of Captain America…it’s also Steve Rogers’ birthday!!
Captain America is my favorite superhero, so I have to celebrate him! Sadly, I will be at work all day, but I’ve already started watching Captain America: The First Avenger tonight and I will definitely watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier tomorrow. I don’t believe I’ve discussed my love of Marvel movies enough, but I am so in love with these stories and the relationships between the characters of the Avengers movies. I appreciate the Thor and Iron Man movies, but the Captain America ones are my favorites. I’m not sure if Captain America: Civil War is still in theaters but I’m 100% down for going to see it a third time to further celebrate my superhero boyfriend’s birthday. It comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD in September and I’m so excited to have more of Cap and Bucky in my home. And Wanda. And Black Panther. And the new Spider-Man…I just love them.
Aside from winning my heart in terms of solo movies, Steve Rogers is such a beautiful and inspirational character in the other movies as well. After all, he was chosen for the Super Soldier serum because of his huge heart and selflessness. I was attracted to him pre-serum when he huddled himself over the grenade that he didn’t know was fake. And, tiny Steve Rogers is adorable anyway. Oh, how I wish I could be the one to give him his first dance.
I have to admit, though, that I also have a crush on his best friend, Bucky Barnes. Do you blame me, though?!
Okay….I’m getting quite distracted; this day is about Rogers!!
My love of Captain America was another love that was introduced to me by my dear friend Jeff, who also got me into Star Trek. I have the greatest friends ever, basically.
Oh, Steve Rogers, let’s just look at you for a bit:
But really, he’s a beauty inside and out, never forget that.
He’s also one of my favorites to play as in Disney Infinity; his shield makes this amazing, soaring swoosh noise when I throw it and he is just the best.
Also, when I went to C2E2 this past winter, I got this beautiful art from Naomi Romero:
Happy Fourth of July!! And, more importantly, Happy Birthday, Captain America!!
