12:01 AM Twilight

Not gonna lie......I LOVED IT!!!
I've only read the first book. I really enjoyed it, but not enough to continue with all the rest. And I definitely didn't think I'd go to the movie, let alone the midnight showing! But my cute Aunt Christy and adorable cousin Tiff invited me and I couldn't turn it down--girl's night! I went and got in line at 9pm (Sweet Ben went with me to keep me company till the rest of the group came) We took our lawn chairs and Rook and made it just in time still be in line INSIDE. The rest of the group came at 10pm and we had a fun 2 more hours till the movie! It was insane!
There was a news crew there and I was on TV! They came right down our line and zoomed in on me jumping and screaming "EDWARD!" (I discovered that there really is a 13 year old girl in all of us).

Anyway--the movie was sweet! At first I thought it was a terrible pick for Edward, but after seeing him in that movie--he was perfect! And his whole family, especially Emmet, were so great! My favorite part of the movie was the family baseball game! It ROCKED! It was so funny to hear the crowd's reactions to everything. Every time a new character was introduced or something big in the book happened--screams and oh's! It was hilarious.
I thought it was better than the book. Only because I didn't love the way Stephanie Meyer writes, her style is too long and drawn-out, I was like, "GET TO THE POINT!" So this wasn't the typical movie where they leave out a lot of important stuff--they hit everything!

Here's the group (there were actually 21 of us but we didn't catch them at the end).

Cousin Tiffany, Aunt Christy and me:

How fun. I haven't read the books and I don't really care to and I probably won't see the movie unless someone pays for me to go, but I am glad you enjoyed it. My roommate is a little obsessed and she was stoked to go see the movie today. Hopefully she will enjoy it as much as you did.

I LOVED THE MOVIE!! I saw it TWICE! I'm one of the obessive girls lol. I've read the first book about eight times! lol
I love reading your blog and you have inspired me to start a book. I don't know if I want to call it Hot fudge Sundaes. I don't like that dessert much. So maybe I'll call it my "Hot Fudge Molton Lava cake book" Doesn't that sound delicious? lol I miss you!
