New Moon has come and gone.
Here I sit all alone.
No New Moon countdown to make me happy,
Just thoughts of Edward that make me sappy.
No party planning to attend to,
Just lots of clean-up left to do.
No excitement, no thrill, no anticipation...
Just memories of a night when New Moon was our destination.
I have to say that I've been in somewhat of a lull. I miss the hubbub that surrounded the last few weeks...putting together decorations, making goodie bags, nailing down a menu, discussing New Moon with my friends, counting down the days and hours...I miss it all...oh, and my date with Edward and Jacob. To put it in a nutshell, it was AMAZING! The party was so super fun. Everyone showed up. Everyone had a good time. Everyone played along w/ my silly games...and they liked it (or at least they pretended for my sake...and because they knew there was prizes involved). The movie was beyond words. I don't even have the right descriptiveness to tell you exactly how I feel. I LOVE that movie.
OK, my review...I thought that Christ Weitz did a fabulous job. He's a directing genius. I'm a lover of the books and I treasure those words that Stephenie wrote and the characters that she brought to life for me through those words. Chris definitely honored the book and held true to the feeling of the book. I felt like he didn't skip anything...although I know he did or we would have been there all night (or morning). I loved the cinematography. I loved the warm feel of the colors. The make-up artists should get huge props for making the Cullens look a hundred times better than Twilight...no more pasty Wal-Mart Halloween make-up...they were all gorgeous! Rosalie looked absolutely beautiful. Jasper was not quite as weird. Bella looked more mature (which she should b/c she's a whole year older in NM). Edward looked rock-hard and sparkly, just as he should. Jacob had me in a trance with his rippling chest and abs, his bulky shoulders, and that beautiful smile. He is his own sun. It ended with the proposal, and went black...just as it should. All is right in my Twilight world...except for the fact that I'm in a slight state of New Moon depression. When I walked into my office this morning, there was no huge party box overflowing with Twilight stuff...no Edward and Jacob behind my door. It was sad. I've seen it twice already and have plans to see it for a 3rd time on Wednesday! Maybe that will help. I know what would really help...I'm thinking Eclipse. Just when you thought all this was over...think again...Eclipse will be here in 218 days! We've already started planning!
OK, now onto the winner of my New Moon Giveaway...
I transferred each person's comments over to a word document and gave each of you your appropriate number of entries in order of when you commented. Then I numbered each entry...
and went to the random number generator (RANDOM.org) and plugged in the number of total entries w/ random number result of 15...
And the winner is...
Michelle from Tickled Pink & Fabulous...and I am tickled pink that she won! She is an awesome blogging buddy, fellow Twi-hard (true true fan), and sister from another mister. We share tons in common (even outside of the Twilight realm). She has a fabulous blog, so be sure to stop by if you don't already! Congrats, Michelle! I think the *crossed fingers* really worked! ;)
Lastly, I've got a few more pics from my party that I
stole borrowed from people who were there. I wasn't able to take as many pictures because I was busy hostessing, so I'm glad others had their cameras. I'm sure they won't mind me sharing.
Me and Allison - her and I are already consipiring for Eclipse! Can't wait!Telena, Edward, and I
Edward, Allie, Me, and Jake...I think I was checking out his biceps.
Getting ready to go see New Moon...party was coming to a close. I love this group shot...wish everyone would have been in it.
Hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!!♥
