I have a confession to make...

If you come here regularly, you know that most of the time I post about the kids, and our nutty life here. Well, Matt's been in Hawaii since Monday morning and frankly, I just don't feel like talking about them. Kind of 'done' with them for now. SO! Let's talk about something more interesting - Jenny Kate, this one's for you.....


I have a confession to make. I don't talk about it a lot on the blog, but I'm fairly addicted to Twilight. and Robsten (you know who they are, right?) Matt knows I'm addicted, but I'm not sure even he knows how far this goes. Let's break it down:

1) I lurk on Twilight blogs on a daily basis. I've pretty much narrowed it down to Letters to Rob, Letters to Twilight, and E! online's The Awful Truth. Because Ted Casablancas LOVES him some Robsten & "Deep Twi" gives us all the dish from the set. LTR and LTT are written by two Thirty-something girls who make me laugh on a daily basis and they always have something funny to say. And they make me feel normal.

2) I've been looking at the 'Twilight' jacket from BB Dakota that Bella wore in the movie for 3 months now, ever since I saw they were going to be producing it for sale. This may be moving to the top of my birthday wish list. And it would solve my problem with #3...

If you want the Twilight jacket, it's very common. You can Google it.

3) Saturday afternoon I saw on Facebook that New Moon tickets were on sale. I immediately called my fellow neighborhood Twi-hard and we instantly agreed that YES! WE ARE GOING TO THE MIDNIGHT SHOWING! Because what else do a few 30-something Moms have to do at Midnight on a Thursday in late November? And who else will be there besides Moms - after all, it's a school night. Which begs the question - what do I wear????? (and yes, the rational part of my brain tells me it doesn't matter)

So I've wasted several hundred minutes looking for...

4) The perfect T-shirt. Now this is tricky. I am soon to turn 39 and I am a Mom, and I don't want to be TOO out there. I'd also like this to be something I can wear to places other than a midnight movie showing & not feel like a total freak. So far I've come up with these, but I'm still hunting...all T's are from Cafe Press.

Can you tell I prefer black? I think the one in the middle is more suited to a magnet for my van, but the other two have possibilities. I'm thinking of layering a flannel shirt over it. Robward likes flannel. and mullets, apparently, but I'm not going there.

5) I've been surfing for bumper stickers and t-shirts to take my mind off the fact that the 6-month old issue of GQ that I spent $20 bucks on ebay for is taking forever to get here.

(Sigh)

Evie's aware of my obession and (of course) the fact that I have a Pocket Edward. (She wants me to take her to TRU this weekend to get a Harry Potter action figure, "you know, like your Edward?") After Matt sent me this, she brought this home from school for me to find:


and I now have this in a place of prominence on my refrigerator!

A gift from my dear friend Kerri :)

Phew! I'm so glad I got all that off my chest. Hopefully nobody's slowly backing away from the crazy Twilight lady & you'll all come back again on another day. 'Cause really, all this is normal. There are plenty of people who will back me up on that. And it's not like I have a picture of Edward on my arm or a quote from the book tattooed across my collar bone. That's just crazy.

  1. Oh my goodness!! Love this! Did you know there's a New Moon Edward action figure too?? I thought of you when I saw it! I want a pocket Edward now!
    Also, I love the 3rd t-shirt, it's cute! There is someone that works at my sons school that drives a mini cooper and it's license plate says: I SPRKL Cool!

  2. Stepping.back.slowly. Don't.make.eye.contact...
    Now RUN!
    Just kidding! We've had some some issues in our house, so we've dropped off creepy things, including Halloween. This will be our 2nd year to go to the HuHot restaurant instead of being at home on 10/31.
    Nah - I won't go away. Just hanging around to see what you end up tatooing...

  3. I like the first shirt and now I want it. lol I am debating on ordering tickets (if they are still available!) Surely I will have a job by then so it may not be the best idea to go to the movie at midnight.

  4. I LOVE IT! I knew you "liked" Twilight, but I'm so happy to hear that you are obsessed. I am too. I have been hiding it. You know I went to the midnight showing of Twilight and then saw it 5 times in the theater? And had a Twilight party. I didn't even know that there are Twilight blogs. I am going to have to go check those out!!!

    So glad to hear that I am not the only one (of course besides Jenny Kate) LOL!

    XOXO

  6. Woot woot! It's about time you came out of your Twilight closet. :). I've been thinking we should do a once a week blog that is titled "Where in the World is Pocket Edward?" My PE is currently residing in my ficus tree in my office...where else? I've been thinking of taking him for an outing. Hmmmm. Where to go? So, I thought you were getting ready to through me and my Twilight tattoo under the bus. :) Don't worry, you know I spend my fair share of time on Twi blogs and websites. I've also spent countless hours thinking of the perfect outfit for the midnight showing of New Moon. It was actually on my list for topics to blog on my next Tuesday twilight blog post. Those shirts are very CUTE! I'm lovin' the first one and the third one especially. I can't decide if I want to dress up or dress like a character (Alice maybe) or just wear some rockin' New Moon attire. It's a difficult decision. I'm kinda glad we have a couple of months still to think about it. :)

  9. I have a small Twilight obsession and a tattoo but not a Twilight tattoo. Those tattoos, albeit beautiful pieces of art, are way over the top IMO!

    I'm going to the opening show as well and I'm a 39 year old mother of two! I will be bringing my 15 year old, her BFF and several of my friends. I was wondering what I was going to wear as well. I think I have come up with a solution.

    I am meeting with a crystal studio next week in hopes to have a crystal apple and "Dazzle Me'" printed either above or below the apple made on black tees. If the set up fees are in the budget I will possibly be selling them. If you're interested let me know and I'll send you the details once I have them. I think a red blinged apple is a very classy, grown up Twilight shirt. I think us Moms should all have one!
