The long wait for the release of New Moon was finally over last night! Kristie, Melanie, Megan and I had so much fun planning and putting on this party! I love all the fun little details...it was awesome! We were sad that a lof of our friends couldn't make it because of the stake leadership training that night...but I know they were with us in spirit! Most of them met up with us at the theater...some went to the big newport though...anyway... We had so much fun waiting in line for the movie and the movie definitely did not disappoint! ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!!! (I wish they'd remake Twilight!) We even got interviewed by an aspiring broadcast journalist about our homemade t-shirts...if she ever sends the link to the youtube video, I'll post it!
I never thought I'd say this (because I LOVED Edward in the books)...but through this whole process of planning the party and rediscovering New Moon, I realized that I LOVE JACOB! There were a few times in the movie that I seriously started to cry -- teary eyes -- and my heart was just aching for Jacob!!!!!!! But...ultimately I am happy he didn't end up with Bella -- he deserves so much better! Ha, ha!
Kristie's famous home-made oreos!!! DELISH!
Jacob wolf cookies
ICE cold apple water (Edward) - with bloody rim!
(We also had Red Hots Cider - Jacob - but it's not pictured)
Thanks to Barbara for helping with the banner! It turned out SO cute!
and we replaced all of Melanie's family pictures with Twilight Saga pictures -- even one of Stephenie Meyer!
a happy Bella and Edward -- don't come across pics of them smiling very often...
and the movie soundtrack, prize for the trivia game
quotes from edward and jacob -- and pics of both of them kissing bella
+ our super cool book marks - edward and jacob!
werewolf kibble goodie bags -- chocolate peanut butter chex mix with miniature dog bone sugar cookies! I thought they turned out SO cute! (and tasty!)
The party planners! (L-R, Me, Kristie, Megan and Melanie - our gracious hostess!) I helped design Kristie's and Megan's t-shirts...Kristie's says "Edward Prefers Brunettes" and Megan's says, "I run with the wolves" -- Melanie's neighbor did hers, and it has a kind of stick figure lamb jumping off a cliff and says "Stupid Lamb" -- So cool!
our fun sign-post...Melanie actually found out the exact mileage from Fountain Valley to those locations...we thought it was pretty cool!
our first guests arrive... Erica is putting on the final touches... They had the coolest glitter spray and looked so sparkly!!!!
Our t-shirt contest finalists: Maddison and Barbara -- Maddie won! Her prize was the New Moon Movie poster...which I think she already had...oh well!
Some of us waiting in line at the movie...(L-R: back, Tracy, Edie, Me, Kim, Julie, Kristie, Melanie, Jessica. front, Julie and Melissa.)
We actually had about 17 people in our group...it was awesome! And we scored on good seats because Kim's cousin got in line at like 11am - so when Kim and Edie showed up they got in line with Kim's cousin - like 14 people back! Then when they got in the theater, they saved us seats...it didn't make other people very happy, but it all worked out in the end!!! So, even though I was ticked off at first that they didn't stand in line with us...(I just wanted them with us b/c they are so fun!)...it was really nice to have that advantage and to have them save us seats. Thanks for all the fun times ladies! Can't wait for Eclipse next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
