Hello all~ I'm attempting to respond to the posts I've missed from the past few days....
Good luck with the Christmas shopping! I'm plugging along with it, but would love to finish up in a week or so as things just seem to get busier the closer we get to Christmas. Hope your brother has a wonderful birthday. You seem to be ramping up to your typical pre-holiday busy social schedule in upcoming weeks.
~ Congrats on achieving 1000 posts--it's amazing how that kind of sneaks up on you. I remember The Wiggles, if they're the same Wiggles from the Australian TV show who wore yellow, blue, red, and (green?) long sleeve shirts, I think? My kids and I watched it pretty religiously when they were little, and I still remember the song "Fruit Salad".
~ I'm glad to hear you had a rather enjoyable Thanksiving with your MIL, and who cares if alcohol was the buffer that made it possible?
I love your plans for "sneaking out" to your second BD viewing with your Mom. I'm the same way....I'll casually mention to my husband beforehand that I plan on wrapping presents, exercising (yeah, right
), and doing house stuff Thursday morning, and then spending Thursday afternoon Christmas shopping before the kids get home from school. That way hubs won't bother calling and inadvertently disturb me when I'm actually at the movie theater watching Breaking Dawn, instead.
~ It sounds like you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving with yummy food and goodies to share. The journal you're writing in for little boy is such a great idea, and a keepsake that he'll always treasure.
~ I loved the Breaking Dawn stills you posted in one of your recent posts these past couple of days. For some dorky reason, I almost became emotional when I saw Stephenie Meyer in the wedding scene, and I actually punched my friend in the arm, I was so excited.
I've taken notes after seeing the movie, but I love that you actually took notes at the movie theater
What a super fan you are! Glad to hear you had a nice visit with your parents and that wedding and honeymoon plans continue to go smoothly. Only four months to go now, right?
~ Glad to hear you made it back safe and sound. Awesome Rob story, and I love that everyone
got in on the act, and only your brother was left out in the cold until he could reluctantly admit he might have to give Rob a chance for his acting chops after all, upon discovering Rob was cast in Cosmopolis
~ I guess you're probably not reading this, but I'm so glad to hear your Mom is alright and safely home from the hospital. Blood sugar levels that high can be so dangerous, and she's lucky you guys encouraged her to get treatment when she did. I hope she doesn't have any residual effects. I didn't catch Wyck G. in the wedding scene, but then I've only seen it once, not six times like yourself.
Wasn't Melissa Rosenberg supposed to also be in that scene?
~ Your 1920's Christmas party sounds like a blast, and Marielle's
idea to research the costumes from WFE is a great idea, with a little Robkowski as the icing on the cake.
~ We're so glad you were finally able to see the movie and hope you enjoyed it. Do you think pregnancy hormones could have contributed to you feeling a little blue, afterwards? I also feel somewhat bittersweet about the whole thing, because this movie was sort of the "beginning of the end", so to speak. And while I'm very excited to see VampBella, I didn't feel quite as connected to her character in the second half of Breaking Dawn
as I had in previous books, because she was no longer human, and was a little more difficult to relate to, if that makes any sense.
~ What a good Momma you are to rescue SonnyBoy. Is he still enjoying circus just as much as ever?
~ We're glad you enjoyed your birthday. It usually gets a little quiet around here, as well as some of the other websites a couple of weeks after a Twilight movie release. There's just not much "new" news, and we've always speculated that we hope Rob and Kristen are holed up privately on a beach somewhere with no crazy papz or fans to bother them....Lord knows, they deserve that time together.
**EDIT: Still pretty bummed that this adorableness
didn't make it into the movie. We never saw Bella eating one single egg, did we?
