New Moon Midnight Release Party

I’d like to start this post off by giving everyone who commented yesterday (here and on FB) a HUGE “Thank You!!!” March 21st will never be a good day for me. But, with friends like all of you (and some thoughtful relatives!), you have each made yesterday go a little bit better. I really felt the love, so THANK YOU!!!

I don’t have a project to share with you today. I came down with an evil cold yesterday (to add insult to injury!). But i really wanted you all to see what a great time I had with my sister Pam and my BF Terry.


Here we are at Walmart. Not a place I frequent by any stretch, but we just had to see what kind of merch they had!


And I figured you all (esp. Erica!) would want to see what I wore… so here is an incredible jacket Pam gave me years ago. Click on any pic to see it bigger.



Terry is not a fan of KS… can you tell???


We went to Borders next, where we picked up our flicks. There were not nearly as many people as there were for Twilight, which surprised us. Esp. considering how much better New Moon was over Twilight! At least, as far as the movies go. Ya know?


And here is Pammie and me. Pam is enjoying a Twi-inspired drink (anything to make a buck right?), and I am just giddy with anticipation!


It was a great night. And even though I wish my Twi-Girls were with us, I couldn’t imagine not doing this without Pam and Terry. Now we just have to wait for Eclipse to come out! Peace, Love and Twilight!

It looks like y'all had a blast!! Love your coat!

My Hubby went to Walmart to pick up something and won a Team Edward bottle by answering a question about New Moon!

All I can possibly say is that Alison, you kick @$$. Period. The end.
Love the pictures! That jacket is completely awesome! I didn't get to go out for this one, so, I'll have to do it for Eclipse.:)

Erica said…
Ahhh a shout out! You know me too well! Love the outfit! That jacket is fab! How tall are those shoes? Love the blonde in the hair! Glad you had fun. There weren't as many people as last year where I went either, but we also had a freak snow storm that evening too.
Micki said…
Oh I'm so envious. We had a snowstorm so I didn't venture out. I had pre-ordered it to better be in the mailbox today :-) Jacket is awesome!!!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my tutorial.... I am such an impatient crafter and when the mojo hits hate to take time out to write down everything, much less take pics, lol.

Thank you for the comment! I have a lot of people I met from CHA so I do their challenges even though they arent really "me" lol!

Leigh Ann Baird said…
You look fabulous! Love the hair! I grabbed the dvd at Walmart. My almost 9yo wants a New Moon party for her birthday next month and I even found New Moon plates and napkins at Target! She is so excited! She wrote out a 2 page outline of what's going to happen at the party. She wrote down stuff like Bella Bacon, Jacob Juice, etc. for food! So cute!
