scary, night-time photos

Well, Twilight wasn't that wonderful. I'm sorry. I didn't love it. I'm really sorry for Stephenie Meyer, really, because the movie doesn't do her characters justice. I could go on and on and on about the bad casting and acting, but I won't.

I'll tell you about the good parts. The good part was that Emily and Caroline and I met up for dinner before the movie and talked. It was fun meeting someone that I only know through blogging, only met on the computer. It's also really strange when you meet someone who you only know through print. You have this idea of what their voice sounds like, but when you hear it out loud, it sounds different than what you imagine. I'm not sure what I sound like to you, in your head, but I've heard myself in recordings and it's not bad.

The best part was in the car afterwards. It was about 11pm and the movie had ended and we realized we had no photos to capture this special moment. So we used the old trusty automatic timer and took some while sitting in Emily's car in the empty parking lot of the restaurant.

We pretended to be moody vampires, like Edward. We pretended to be stuttering teenager girls, like Bella. And we laughed. And laughed. Oh my, it was one of those times when it's late, and you're punchy, and things that aren't normally funny are hilarious. And you're with friends, so it's ok.

So, even though the movie wasn't that great, it was a great night with some really amazing women.

oh, I'm so jealous. Not because you saw the movie and I didn't, but because....I want to meet a bloggy friend too!!

So fun.

It WAS a blast. The photo shoot was by far the best though. Since our paparazzi wasn't around, the only other option was to take our own pictures. Actually I should say you and Emily's paparazzi - you're so popular.

Let's get together again...soon!

I WANT TO BE THERE WITH BLOGGERS AND FELLOW TWILIGHT LOVERS! My hubby is going with me tonight but not because he wants to. I just pray he'll like it since he hasn't read the book. I am so with you on hearing bloggers voices in your head then the real ones being so different than what you expected. I felt that same way when watching the video on The Pumpkin Seeds blog last week. Totally took me back and made me think.

I am so with you on the disappointment. I have a huge list of issues. But I am really glad that my daughter loved it.

And meeting with other bloggers is beyond fun. LOVE, love, love the pictures!

That looks like fun! I know my seestar had a great time with ya'll! Enjoy the few days off from work, Sissy! You'll have to peek in on our blog- I've posted the most recent house renovations that LG's been up to. Amazing, I think! I haven't been able to help him paint which makes me sad, but it is not stopping him. Are you doing any home renovations right now?
