I just saw TWILIGHT!!!!

Ok, heres the deal...I promised no spoilers, so I will keep my word! BUT...

I am going to give my opinion, so if you dont want to hear it, DONT READ anymore!!! ;)

I'm not giving anything away, just what I think you might want to know before you see it!!

Just remember, you dont have to read!!!

but since you probably still are...

I went with the Madonna group (+1) and we all thought it was great!!
To be honest, it might of had to do with the fact that I had heard nothing but BAD reviews ALL day :(
"Actors sucked" "Special Effects sucked" "Nothing like the book" (and no, not just from you Cara! lol)
I will agree with one thing...special effects sucked!
I think it helped too that I had looked at the cast before I saw the movie...I knew what to expect! (that was another complaint I heard...unrealistic actors!)
Other than that, the characters grew on me, I loved Bella, got used to Edward (he was a little stiff!), and thought they hit all the big events in the book pretty well!!
I'm a huge Alice fan, so I wanted more of her, but I guess I'll have to wait for the next 3 movies!! haha
Melissa (one of the girls w/ us!) brought us a copy of the soundtrack to the movie, so that was pretty fun too! There a few really good songs!!
So, I cant wait to hear what all my blog girls and CCBC thought of it!!
I think if you just realize NOONE could portray Edward (or any of the characters for that matter!) the was we see him when we read, and that the special effects are pretty lame, you will like it too!
Happy Twilighting!!!

MADONNA and more!

As you ALL know, Madonna was here in Houston Sunday night!!!!!!!!!
We ended up meeting up with 3 other girls (that work w/ Nat) that were going and got a limo! So the 6 of us got to ride in style and head to the concert! I have more pics, but I'm waiting on the other girls to email their pics! I couldnt wait to post about it though! I guess I will just have to update when I get them!! We went to eat at Dolce Vita and had the best food and pomegranite martinis!!
Then back to the limo to go to Minute Maid Park!!
Wine and Champagne in the limo!!
Are we really going to the Madonna concert FINALLY?!?!?Finally at our seats!My girls!!

We have had our tickets for almost 6 months, so it was good to FINALLY go!!

She rocked...I mean, other than the stripper pole, kissing girls, flicking off the cameras (oh atleast 10 times), humping the floor (on many occasions), and having to look at a picture of Obama on the screen, it was pretty tame! HAHAHAHA

Surprisingly, we were 3 of the youngest people there! It was probably 60% gays, 30% older, die hard fans, and 10% couples that the girls forced the guys to come!! Well, I guess it was a bit more diverse, b/c we didnt fit into any of those categories! lol It was a pretty strange crowd though!!
So needless to say, my bday is officially over, but I think I did pretty good this year!!
Birthday post coming soon! There was just way too many pics to combine!

There are so many things coming up soon, so each event I knock off my calendar the better! ;) Thanksgiving, Landons tonsillectomy, Lissas briday shower, Landons bday, here I come!!

More importantly (well, you know what I mean), guess what this Friday is?!?!?!?!?

Drum roll please.......

did you guess?!?!?!


TWILIGHT comes out!!!!!

We are going Friday night, and I am super excited! I cant wait to hear what everybody thinks about it! I hope we are not let down!

And, last but CERTAINLY not least, Landon got his second report card, and he got ALL pluses, E's and S's!!! (they dont have letter grades until 1st grade here!)
I am very proud of him! I think he was pretty proud himself too!! (especially after he got $10 from Nana!)
My little baby is growing up so much!
So, stay tuned for crazy bday pics...I have to go catch up on all your blogs now! ;)
