Steppin' Out: Breaking Dawn Edition

Thursday night, my girlfriends and I stepped out, as we have with every other movie in
the "Twilight" series, to the midnight premier of "Breaking Dawn".  We have
anxiously awaited this movie for over a year now, speculating on how it would translate
from written word to the screen.  It did not disappoint!!!  It was a beautifully directed
film that included all of the most important elements of the fourth installment: romance,
gore, and an ending that left you on the edge of your seat.  
I love this series because it is centered around a beautiful and unbreakable love.  Bella
and Edward's love is not perfect, but the connection they share is something I understand
and feel for my own Edward Cullen.  Sure, it's cheesy, unrealistic, and was originally
written for a tween audience.  But I love these two star crossed lovers and their
commitment to one another.  
And I love how much fun my girlfriends and I can have camping out in front of a
theater, staying up past our 30 something year old bedtimes, laughing and joking
and enjoying a night to just be silly.  We've done this for every movie, the Nerd Herd,
proudly sporting our  Twilight tshirts.  I am blessed to have such an amazing group
of girlfriends, women I can be myself around, girls who don't take themselves too
seriously and enjoy a night of pure fun.  After I fed my babies their dinner and tucked
them all warm in their beds, I packed up my lawn chair and headed to the theater,
my pre-purchased ticket in hand.  This year, we were first in line, braving the
cold temperatures, all wrapped in our stadium blankets.
It was a night to remember...

These are hard core fans right here people.  The icing on the cake was when our local
news showed up to film the line containing hundreds of fans that wrapped around the
movie theater.  I planted myself right behind the teen reporter (quite the local celebrity)
as my girlfriends stood in the background and laughed themselves to tears at the
gigantic smile plastered on my face.  Go here to see my television debut, I will most
 likely never live this down.
So here's to great friends, fun times, and a movie that made us hard core
Twi-Hards very, very happy.  See you for Part 2 next November!!

I just saw it yesterday and agree with you ~ it did not disappoint!!! I just don't see how they expect us to wait a WHOLE YEAR for the next one. Cruel and unusual punishment!

Looks like a super fun night! I'm surprised there wasn't a camp fire and s'mores - you guys looked prepared for anything. I've never gone to a midnight movie - I'm just not that dedicated. :)

(Found you via FTLOB Comment Love Day. Happy Sunday!)

Nice! I think I'm going to see the film by myself (Gasp -- I've never seen a movie alone!) on Wednesday.

Bahahahaha that news clip is HYSTERICAL! I was bummed that I didn't get to go to opening night since I had a 12 hours shift ahead of me Friday, but I DID get to see it with a friend Friday night, so all is well. Ahhh guilty pleasures...
