I would like to thank everyone that entered the contest. For many TwiFans it was their first blog. You all did great and keep blogging! In the end one blog made us giggle and we knew it was our winner.
Saturday Dec. 4th...I had waited for it for months! I sadly was not into Twilight for the first movie or New Moon. I just got into it when Eclipse was in the theaters, so this is the first DVD release that I was excited for! My friend Melissa and I decided to head to Target early in the morning so we could be there when it opened. Sadly nowhere in our area was having a midnight release so we had to wait. We woke up at the crack of dawn and rushed to Target in our pajamas, eager for the door to open! It was raining outside and very cold, but we didn't care. We wanted our dvd's! We ended up being first in line and RAN into the store as soon as they opened it. I almost slipped because my shoes were wet! Can you imagine? I could have told Robert if I ever meet him someday that I got a concussion for him. LOL. Thank god that didn't happen. We ran to the video aisle of the store and two guys looked at us frantically searching around for where the section of DVD's were. One guys says "Are you looking for Eclipse?" with a knowing look in his eyes. I guess they were ready for the crazies. I shook my head yes and he pointed me in the right direction. We both ended up getting the $24.99 2 disc special edition with the collectors cards. The smile on my face was probably ridiculous as I hugged my DVD to my chest.
I definitely did not act my age on Saturday. How does Robert always turn me into a swoonie 15 year old? I actually kissed one of the posters. Yes. I did it, I admit it! I couldn't even help myself. I hadn't done that since I was 15, literally!
At 3pm the other girls arrived and one of them had picked up the cupcakes that Melissa ordered. They were so cute! Here they are
I admit it. I had entirely too much fun licking Edward. Sadly, when I did, his face started getting fuzzy and eventually the colors ran together. But, he was SO yummy :D
Twilight and New Moon were lovely of course. I mean, we have all watched them more times than we can count right? I still get worked up at the kissing scenes. And I still get nervous when the Volturi, specifically Felix, is beating up Rob at the end of New Moon. I kept yelling at the screen "DONT HURT HIM!!!!" as if that would help. I think my friends thought I had lost it. I am definitely the most "passionate" of the 4 of us when it comes to the movies and more specifically Robert. It didn't help that we were taking German Chocolate Cake shots throughout the day. Between those and me getting all hot over Rob, I kept having to remove my sweatshirt or get out from under my Edward blanket that I was cuddled up with. By far the best point of the night was watching Eclipse though. I had seen it twice in the theaters. Once when it was originally in the theaters (I barely got into Twilight the last week that it was still at theaters) and once on Bella's birthday when it was rereleased. So, finally seeing it again was awesome. I could hardly handle the kissing scenes and leg hitch scene. I was squealing and stomping my feet. Alcohol + Robert = an overly excited me! The alcohol hit me hard by the end of the movie and I ended up like this and my friends just had to take a picture of me. The flash woke me up! LOL.
Yes, I'm just a tad Robsessed huh?
It was well after midnight and I decided to go home. By the time I got home and got my daughter into bed it was nearly 1am. But, I still had to watch the commentary on the dvd. I stayed up until 3am doing just that. I have never laughed so hard as I did listening to the commentary. Robert is so funny! I love when he says he is drinking an Arnold Palmer in the american accent and when he tells Kristen it looks like she is milking Jacob lol. He has the funniest, weirdest sense of humor. I had to wait to watch the behind the scenes and deleted/extended scenes until the next morning.
All in all, it was probably one of the best days of my entire year. I have since watched Eclipse 3 more times and watched all of the extras more times than I can count. In fact, I am watching Eclipse as I type this with my cousin who was not able to come to the party.
I LOVE ECLIPSE!!! I love Robert Pattinson! If I got that cardboard cut out, I'm not sure that I could be held responsible for what I do to it ;
