Twilighted

My Twilight party was a blast! My old roommate Brendy came with her friend Becky. And my sister-in-law came and brought the cutest Edward and Jacob cookies. And my two cute neighbors Windy and Whitney came! We hit every angle of the books and tried to figure out what the next book would entail. We were giddy with excitement! Midnight couldn't come quick enough! And when it finally did, some of us went to Walmart where we were greeted quickly and happily with our new book!!!!!!!!!!!! No pre-ordering, no lines, no wait! And I so wanted to win a TEAM JAKE t-shirt! It took all that was in me not to crack open the book and flip through to see the ending. But of course I didn't. I'm just happy to have my book. And I plan on taking my time to read it. I wanted to stay up all night reading, but really only made it to 2:30. Then Max woke up crying and that distracted me enough to put it down and get some rest. However, I didn't really sleep thanks to Max. Grrrrr! And just for you other Breaking Dawn readers...I'm not going to plow through the book, I want it to last as long as possible. So next time you see me, don't say a word or even hint about the book. My sister and I made code words to know if we could talk to each other. If I am not finished with the book we say "Bella's missing" and if we are through with the book we say "Vampires Rule". So if you do feel inclined to talk about it, use code please! :) (I think there are more Jake fans than you think!)

How much fun! I wish I could have been there with you gals to share in this excitement. There aren't too many fans where I live. I was able to buy my book at Borders this afternoon, so I'll be enjoying my book along with you too! I'm so ecstatic!

You are too cute. You guys make me laugh. I was with Whitney, and she couldn't put the book down!! I'm sure that will be me. I get to borrow hers next.

I was so sorry that I had to miss your Twilight night! I SOOOO wanted to be there but Tyler had to work late. :( I can't wait to dive into the book either, but like you, I'm most likely going to take my time reading it! :)

so what does code mean when you say "ERIC RULES"? :) j/k
Ahh, you are as crazy as my wife. We went to Barnes & Noble for the party and midnight selling of the book. The Barnes & Noble we went to was two stories high, and the line filled the whole bottom of the store to the top. Trisha and I were in the Letter "M" group which basically meant we would have waited 2 hours before we bought our book (did I mention this Barnes and Noble was HUGE). Anyways, there was NO way I was waiting in line for two hours. I spoke with the manager and pulled the whole "my wife is 9 months pregnant card" (same card I pulled when Trisha was pregnant with Natalia and we jumped in front of the line for the Star Wars 3 debut) so when midnight hit, we were one of the first ones to purchase the book, and Trisha got 3 hours of reading in as well. Trisha would have commented on your blog but, well... she is busy right now :)
Have fun reading your book, I hope all you girls in Legacy Ranch enjoy BREAKING DAWN!

P.S. Your husband is an AWESOME realtor. You should be carrying a sign of HIM (instead of Jake). Kind of like how I do in front of my condo ;)

What a fun night! I started reading last night...

Mindy said...

Happy reading dear sis! Your party sounds so fun. I would have eaten all the Edward cookies because I LOVE Edward and I LOVE cookies. :)

Btw - Bella is missing... so we can't talk yet.

I had a blast, thanks for having us over. We should have another party when "vampires rule." Love ya!

Windy said...

I just finished it last night. I tried to take my time but I just couldn't. I did neglect my kids and husband for a while. Cambree even crawled over and sat right on the book so I would play with her. Let me know when you are done so we can discuss!! Hehe!!

Michelle said...

Well "Bella's missing" at my house, I like to take my time and I can't give up precious sleep for a book! You crack me up! I got mine at Costco the next time, midnight was way to late for this mom!

Christi said...

I'm jealous. No one I know in the state of Colorado likes Twilight so I waited until Saturday to get the book. I'm still reading it. I'm trying to take my time but I can't wait to finish it.

Kenna said...

I think that I'm on your side about Jacob! I do love those unpredictable, wild ones! Although Bella's missing for me, I am reading it! I pre-ordered it, and it didn't come until just the other day!! Oy! Why would they do that to me???? I want to hear what you think!
