I Got Sucked In....


That's right. I joined the thousands of Utah moms and women who went to the "Twilight" premiere last night. My showing was a 12:15 at Jordan Commons. I have to say that I didn't mind the "Twilight" series, but I wasn't a devoted fan like some people are. I decided to go to the movie with some friends and it proved to be a very fun night. We got to the theater around 10:45 and luckily they let us into the theater around 11:00 so we didn' t have to wait out in the lobby. The place was jam-packed with women (and a few guys who looked like they were vampires in real life, or they were wearing shirts that said, "I don't know why I am here). My friend Roxanne and I were a little nervous about staying awake so we had to go get a large popcorn and some Diet Coke to make sure that didn't happen. :) Unfortunately, we ate almost the whole large popcorn by ourselves... Oh, well... the diet will resume today right?

The movie was entertaining and I didn' t have any problem staying awake. I wanted to kill Bella, but I hated her in the books so I guess the actress did a good job. She is just a bad character. What kept the movie (and book) alive was EDWARD! I have to say, I was not a huge fan of his (the actor) before the show, but I have to agree with the masses that he is HOT HOT HOT! I couldn't stop looking at him. There was a little steam ( I could have done with more :) ), but overall the chemistry was good. I'll go out on a limb here and say that there were probably happy husbands at home around 3-4 am when their wives came home! :) Haha. It was worth it.

That is so funny! I went to the show last night as well with my mom and two sisters. Right after the show my sister said to me, I want to go home and kiss my hubby now! Anyway I can't blieve you hated Bella, I loved her. I thought she was totally perfect and what I pictured her to look like. I didn't love Edward and I wish he was better looking, but oh well. I was glad to see I wasn't the only crazy Mommy out last night. Lucky for me I got to come home and feed my baby twice last night. Needless to say I NEED sleep. But I had a great time:)

I read the book and had no idea what all the hype is about. Not like Harry Potter anyway. I put off reading that one just because it was so popular and when I finally did read I was hooked too. But that picture, is that Edward? He was Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire. I guess Vampires just aren't my thing.

Ha ha Erin!! Sounds like you had fun at the movie premier. So I am compeltely in love with the Edward in the book, and I was completely disappointed with his movie character. He does NOTHING for me...to say the least!!! You're going to be one of those who sees the movie four times aren't you :-)
