new moon. of course.

So I caved. In fact - I didn't really cave at all, the whole thing was planned, but since I don't want to come across as excited as a 15 year old girl, "I caved".

I went and bought New Moon - for my kids, or so I tell people who ask, when secretly since devouring the entire series in a few weeks, I've been waiting on pins and needles for the movies to come out.
We had a midnight showing at a friends house with our kids - of course they loved it, and this elicited whispered conversations of "I'm on Edwards side" "Edward?? Jacobs so much cooler" "But Edward lives longer. Jacob will get old, like Mom" <--- this was actually a conversation which - up to that point, I had been quietly enjoying. That was where I cut in with an equally whispered "Shhh. You're missing the movie .... & making me feel old" was left unsaid.
All in all, it was a good time & even as I write this, my girls are huddled around the t.v , watching the movie again, giggling & making comments about who they would marry.

And today is a good friend of mine's birthday - which she shares with her son. So "K & D"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
See you late on tonight xx

Happy Birthday to K & D! I haven't seen New Moon yet, but I may watch it. I've just not gotten into the Twilight stuff, but I do see the sex appeal. Go Team Jacob!

Uugh...I tried to resist reading the books! I don't know why I was so against them, I guess it was because the were so popular with the tweens!

My 70 year old Mother in Law talked me into reading them and let me borrow them, I read all four books in a week!! Lol...

Can't wait to see the movie again!

I've been told that they are good books and movies...I, however, have not seen or read them.

The special effects in the movie are as good as the story line itself.

yeah I got new moon last saturday on my way home after an 8 hour fitness workshop. I was so tired i could barely move but i HAD to get the movie before going home.

I am 100% team edward. To be honest I don't really understand the team edward.team jacob thing. Anyoue who's read the whole series knows jacob gets what he really wants in the end, and come ON, who could resist edward?????

Seriously, I'm completely in love with him.

Have you read the unfinished midnight sun manuscript? it's twilight from edward's point of view. If you haven't you should check it out - you can find it on stephanie meyers website. I love edward even more after reading it! the only downside is - it's unfinished so you're happily reading away and then it just stops. and you like -I WANNA READ THE REST!!!! (or at least i was...)

Team Edward all the way! I took my 10 year old to see the midnight opening! And she just had an 11 year old New Moon party! I love being a Twilight Mom!
