THE Official Twilight Convention - ATL 2010...AND Eclipse Trailer!!

There is SO much excitement in Twi-land!  Have you seen the Eclipse teaser and/or trailer yet??
For those who haven't...don't waste any more time...Here's the TRAILER...(Feel free to watch it as much as you want...I don't charge for parking. :)

OHMYTWILIGHTGOODNESS (OMTG...from here on out)!!!  How exciting is that?  Goosebumps?  Check.  Elevated blood pressure?  Check.  Tear in eye?  Check. (Quit judging me...it's emotional!)  Edward just saying her name at the beginning is enough to get me, and then you throw Jacob's bit in there "I'll fight for you until your heart stops beating"....holy smokes, does it get any sweeter than that?  Oh, to be Bella Swan for a day...a girl can dream.

Who wants to talk Twilight Convention?  Me!  I do!  I do!

Most asked questions...

Was it fun?  Hmmmm.  Let me check.  DUH!  Let's just say that it was beyond fun...it was amazing...I need to invent a new word for how fun it was.

Would I do it again?  That would be a yes!  I'm hooked.  When's the next one?  Sign me up!

Would I get Gold Package again?  Absolutely, YES!  It was well worth it.  We were on the 4th row and it was easy to get great pictures.  We also had tickets to all of the extras.  It was nice to be first in line for autographs.  I would definitely go gold again.

What was the best part?  It's just too hard to choose...but the highlights are meeting all seven stars.  I went in being so super excited to meet Peter Facinelli (which was amazing...if I say "amazing" one more time, just change my name to Jake and put me on the Bachelor), and it was definitely a highlight...probably at the top of the list.  He is so down to earth and super funny.  I was just hanging on every.single.word.he.said.  What I thought was interesting was that I was excited to see each star because of the role they play in the Twilight Saga, but I left being a personal fan.  I love each and every one of them for who they are and not just for the role they play.  Does that make sense? 

My most memorable conversation was with Michael Welch (Mike Newton).  It was at the end of a long day and we were waiting in line for his autograph.  We were having fun conversations with all the people we were standing in line with and goofing off.  So, by the time we got to the table to get our autograph, we were being silly and cutting up (which is right up his alley...he is SUCH a clown!).  I was telling him how good his coffee smelled...and how I wish I had some Starbucks about right now.  We hadn't ate ALL day.  (One of the prices you pay to be at Twi Con...we referred to it as the Twi Con Diet...everybody should try it. =P)  So, he starts sipping on his coffee...really slowly...savoring each sip.  All the while, we're just standing there waiting on our autograph.  I told him how unfair it was and that he was basically a punk (yeah, I might of said those exact words...while laughing, of course).  THEN, he offers me a drink of his coffee!  I thought he was joking at first, but after us discussing the fact that I don't have cooties, I realized that he was being completely serious.  I wouldn't do it because I thought he would probably just throw it away after I walked off...but now I'm not sure that he would of, he's pretty crazy like that.  I told him I couldn't see a good cup of coffee go to waste...that is just wrong.  We had a good laugh.  It was fun interacting with him.

Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) is from Texas, and being the big time Sooner fans that my cousin Lindsay and I are, we decided we needed to find out if he was a UT (Longhorns) fan.  I would like to assure that he is NOT.  Whew, what a relief.  Funny thing was that he didn't even know who we were talking about.  He's not a football fan.  We told him we wouldn't hold it against him.

An unexpected surprise was the cast of the internet phenom Hillywood Show.  They were so super cool and played their roles so well!  Sometimes I felt like I was looking at THE Jacob or THE Jasper...they were so so good.  Hilly and Hannah are amazing talents.  They're geniuses at this parody stuff.  You should check them out online.  You can find them at http://www.thehillywoodshow.com/ !

I collected a few things while at the Convention to giveaway...how does a little Twilight Convention/New Moon Giveaway sound???  Come back tomorrow for a peak at what I have to give away and the details on how to enter!
