Just couldn't wait!



My friend, Christie and I were pretty anxious to get our hands on the last book in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn! We went to Barnes and Noble at midnight for the release party. When we got there, there was a huge mass of people all wanting one thing...the book! And we felt a little old...it was mostly teenagers and young kids. And, yes, we have sleepy eyes. We attempted a picture of the momentous occasion. Thanks Christie! It was so fun!


Happily and surprisingly we only saw a couple people dressed up. We had reserved a copy so it only took us a few minutes till it was in hand! I haven't even finished the first chapter yet because I have to PACK! Ugh! Seriously, I'm trying to contain myself because I know I won't be able to put it down once I get into it. But, so far, so good. Can't wait to keep reading. Maybe I should take this one in strides, so I can savor it instead of reading all 3 first books in 3 days. Happy reading to the many Twilighters out there!
Oh, I forgot to mention we even got complimentary stickers!! ha (I thought that was pretty funny) :)

Totally jealous!!! I pre-ordered my book through Amazon and now have to wait until Tues...at least I won't be the only one not reading it all today! I wish I could have been there with you guys, it looks like you had a blast! Get to packing so that you can reward yourself by reading the book!

Ha ha! I love it! I just picked up a copy today. Isn't it crazy how this has exploded!
Enjoy it!
By the way, when do you head to Colorado? Our move is finally complete, but now I'm trying to find a new OB, etc... I wish you all the best!

I totally did the same thing at our Barnes & Nobles with 20 girls from my ward. It was a blast! I still have about 200 pages left. Hope you will have time to read it soon!

Hi Stacey! Your Aunt Susan sent us the link to your blog. Love it. And why hasn't anyone told us that you are pregnant??? Ha. I did hear about a kidney stone, but not sure if that was you :) Anyway, CONGRATS!!

This has absolutely nothing to do with your post but I just found this out and am so excited about it:
The Harry Potter movie has decided to change their release date from November 21st to July 2009. Because of that, the company that produced the Twilight Movie has moved their release date up from December 12 to November 21st (no longer competing with Harry Potter)
YAY!!
