Twilight is a must see movie! I really enjoyed the movie but the book is 100 times better. Rob Pattinson looked AWESOME. I can't believe how different he looks in the movie and then his regular appearance in interviews. I've been obsessed with watching all the videos on Youtube for the past month so I've gotten used to his "normal" self. I love Rob anytime but dayum in the movie with the perfection of make-up, OMGosh I about wet myself just thinking about it. LOL
I like that it stays loyal to the book but I wished they would have cut a few non-important scenes to make the crucial scenes longer. It seemed to jump from scene to scene too fast. My favorites are the baseball scene (LOVE LOVE LOVE IT) and fight scene but both of those were too short IMO....especially the fight scene.
POSSIBLE SPOILER - I'm SO hoping Stephenie will finish Edward's POV (Midnight Sun) because I'm dying to see Edward's reaction when he finds out Jasper and Alice lost Bella in the airport. I was SO looking forward to that in the movie but the entire scene got cut. That was probably my biggest upset.
In the books, my favs have always been Edward, Emmett and Alice but after watching the movie, I love every one of them. The actors did a FABULOUS job portraying these characters. KUDOS to them.
All in all it was a great movie and I want to see it again just so I can concentrate on the movie itself and not have my brain trying to compare. I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD.
My good friend Toni over at Just Stop Screaming is having an amazing Twilight giveway just in time for the Twilight release at 12:00 TONIGHT. Its been running for over a week now and she's had some really great items. Its too bad my luck hasn't been good enough to win yet. HA HA
Today she has a really awesome necklace that I would love to have, check it out here.
Tomorrow is the last giveaway so I'm super excited to see what that item will be. Depending on what is, I just might be willing to humiliate myself on video. What's a girl to do? :o)
So head on over to Toni's place and give her some love.
When I heard that I thought what a phrase, of course most of us know that it's the 'beauty queen' phrase but when you think about it why not apply it to blog land and have "Blog Peace"
We all know how drama filled the world of blogging can be (and has been lately) and let me just tell you I personally am tired of it, it's a big blog world out there with lots of people to get to know and enjoy. Banning, backstabbing and cattiness need not be in the blog world.
If you are like me you use blogging as a means to escape your everyday "real" life for just a little bit. It's a place to be theraputic, have fun giveaways, share cool products you come across and just get to know other awesome people. You have the chance to just have a good time and give others a laugh or cry.
So why oh why do we need drama??
The answer is WE DON'T!!!!!!!
Please REPOST this on your blog to take a stand and have your voice heard:
Now come on all you blogging queens let's join together and let everyone know we won't stand for drama, we won't stand for blocking people from our sites, we won't stand for being immature,
We won't stand for bashing other blogs...because we stand for BLOG PEACE!
We come here to have fun, to win stuff, to learn about others and thank God that someone else's child is not ours when we see him/her doing something naughty! It's a place to be yourself and
Share who you are with tons of people and brighten other peoples day.
Who's with me, who out there in bloggy land is tired of the blog bullies? Who out there is tired of the mean girls in the blog world?~And I will be the first to admit I was a mean girl to one blogger in the past and I am so very sorry for what I did~
Who wants to stand up and say "We want blogging to be fun again", "We want blogging to be about friendships?", "We want to not have to look over our shoulder and wonder if we are going to be blogged about".
Let's stand together today and say to everyone out there in blog land "We Promote Blog Peace" and we want everyone to just get along.
Please repost, grab the "I Promote Blog Peace" button to wear with pride, and sign mister linky if you want to take a stand for Blog peace and link back to here. As well as let's all get out there and tweet that we promote blog peace too, spread the word. When you tweet just put #blogpeace (no spaces) in your tweet, that way if anyone searches for blogpeace they will find all of us who support it!
Complaint 1 My little brother, Eric, is getting married this Saturday and Gavin is going to be the ring bearer. He called me semi-frantic Tuesday afternoon that he had Gavin's tux and we needed to find out as soon as possible if it fit so we could get replacements in time. That's understandable and standard procedure so what's got you so upset? Eric got his tux at the same time and it was nothing but the tux itself. There was NO tie, no vest, no fancy jewelry buttons and his shirt was the wrong size. What are these people smoking? How can you "forget" to include 1/2 the freaking tux?
Complaint 2 My Mom, Dad and I are hosting the rehearsal dinner Friday night. My Mom gets a call yesterday morning from the preacher's wife which also happens to be the bride-to-be's aunt. She asked Mama what we were having Friday night. First off, its doesn't really matter what we are eating. When you are a guest somewhere you don't call and request a dinner menu. Anyway, my Mom tells her the menu all the way down to the desserts of strawberry pies, chocolate delight and banana pudding. The preacher's wife says "That sounds good except for one problem?" Yeah, what's that problem? "Paul (the preacher) is a diabetic and he can't have those desserts. You need to have a sugar free pie." Then, she proceeds to tell my Mom that at Walmart in the bakery they have sugar free chocolate, lemon and coconut pies and that we should buy one for Paul.
You know what lady? I am in charge of the desserts and your husband is a GROWN freaking man. He knows what he can have and what he can't. If you want him to have a pie so bad, YOU buy one from Walmart and he can have the whole freaking thing when he gets home from rehearsal.
When you go someplace like this if there's something there you don't like, want or need, you just skip over it and move on to the next thing. I can't believe anyone would do such a thing much less a preacher's wife.
I'll have to listen out and let you know if she requests something similar at the wedding reception.
The other day we took the boys to McDonalds and I ordered Tyler the usual cheeseburger, "No pickles, add mayo" not even thinking about onions. I'm driving so DH is trying to get the boys' food ready and he says
"Why do they put this on kids hamburgers? They know kids won't eat this crap?" DH proceeds with scraping the onions off the burger and Gavin says "Do you, Daddy?" DH - "Do I what?" Gavin - "Do you eat that crap?"
I thought I'd lose control of the car laughing SO hard.
On Saturday, Gavin sees this Black & Decker tool bench on a commercial and he decides he wants it for Christmas. Here's our conversation:
Gavin - "I want you to call Santa Claus right now and tell him to bring me that for Christmas." Me - "I can't call Santa right now, he's sleeping. Its nighttime where Santa is." Gavin - "No he's not, he is working." Me - "Where does Santa work?" Gavin (in his most sarcastic tone) - "At Georgia Power with my Daddy."
Its been quite a weekend for me. Saturday, I spent the entire day with my Mom doing last minute shopping for my brother's wedding next weekend. My boys put in to spend the night with her and how could she say no to her grandbabies? She was exhausted but so was I and she took them home with her anyway. I was SO relieved to have a small break.
Today was my SIL's bridal shower so the boys stayed home with DH. They got a lot of great stuff and NO doubles so hopefully few returns.
I hope everyone's had a pretty uneventful weekend.
Hey everyone, I guess I'm officially popping my blog cherry. Its a little overwhelming right now but I'll get the hang of it soon. I can't believe I finally created a blog but its all my friend Toni's fault. She made me do it! I just hope I can live up to the expectations.
