Twilight Fans: UPDATE!

Thanks to my good buddy Megan, I can share this exciting news with all of you Twilight fans out there!


I couldn't get this image to post any larger and still be readable, so here's what it says:

"To all of our wonderful, loyal and fantastic fans -

Thank you from the entire cast & crew for your amazing support of Twilight. You’ve blown away all of our expectations, and we feel so honored to have made a film that means as much to you as it does to us.

Without your passion, interaction and support, this film would not be where it is today -- the #1 movie in America!

From every city, every stop, every interview we have done, you've made this an unbelievable, nearly surreal experience…and so cool that we were all in this together.

We just heard from Summit that we’ll be moving forward on New Moon. We look forward to sharing this next chapter with you!

Kristen & Rob"

Have you all recovered from our fun all-nighter yet? I am still. I woke up with a migraine this morning...BLECH! Took my meds and went back to bed until about 2pm. Feeling a bit better now, at least I can see straight and my head isn't throbbing anymore...but I do have this annoying dull ache right behind my left eye, and my stomach doesn't feel so good. I hate migraines! Brad said "No more all-nighters for you!" I agree. I am just not cut out for it! Even when I was younger, I was usually the first one to konk out. OH WELL! Sleep is good. LOTS of sleep is better. :) As a Mommy I should know that and not mess with that.

Ok, now that that is out of the way (I know you all wanted to hear my crappy health news) I wanted to thank Kristie and Megan for all of their help putting on the best-ever Twilight party with me! It was so much fun, and I can't wait to do another one for New Moon (sans the midnight movie...) and Eclipse and hopefully eventually Breaking Dawn! I will upload pics soon...

Thanks to all who came, and I hope you had a fun time! We missed those of you who couldn't make it, but hope you had a fun night anyway!

Has anyone gone to see it for the 2nd time yet? Hopefully I can get Brad to go see it with me...since he refuses to read the books! Even though I think he'd absolutely love the books. Maybe someday...



A while ago some of you asked how I got that signature at the bottom of my posts. Well, I just changed it, and realized I never posted anything about how to do it, so here ya go! It's very easy! Just go to: http://www.mylivesignature.com/mls_menu.php

(FYI: You don't need to register to use this site)

Click on: "Create a new signature using our wizard"

Click on: "Using the signature creation wizard"

Follow the simple instructions to choose a font, size, slope and color.

Be patient, once you've chosen your color, the next step is for the wizard to create your signature and sometimes this will take a minute or so.

Click on: "Want to use this signature?"

Click on: "Generate HTML code"

Click on: "Generate a code for my handwritten signature"

Copy the HTML code and go to your blog. To insert the signature so that it is included in every post, go to "Settings>Formatting>Post Template" and paste the code in the box next to "Post Template" and save.

Voila! You now have your very own unique signature! :)

The signature will appear at the top of each new post - just place the cursor in front of it and hit enter once or twice then move the cursor back to the top to start typing your post.

How cool is that? YAY! :)


It's FINALLY Gone!!!!!!!

Yes, I finally did it...chopped my hair off that is! Thanks to my wonderfully talented friend Kristie, I now have a cute new 'do! I love it! Thanks Kristie!!!!! This is my 4th donation to Locks of Love!!
Here are some before and after shots:

So, what do you think? I know Brad won't miss my long hairs all over everything...and I won't miss them either! It feels so good to have it off. As Kristie was cutting off the ponytail, she was like, "Does it feel good?" I said, "YES!" and then I laughed and said, "It reminds me of that girl from Sixteen Candles who gets her hair stuck in the door, and when her friends finally cut her free, you can tell it was like the best feeling!" SO TRUE...I feel like a new person! :) Now give me another 2.5 years and I'll do it again!
