Oh happy day, Twilight!

Saturday was a great day for several reasons!! First I got to spend a day with the girls. I headed over to my friend Mel's house for a 'nestie' get-together. These are wonderful ladies I met on the December 2007 board on the knot while I was planning my wedding. After I moved to Boston for my new job, we were able to all meet and have been having fun since then. There we are today at our November get-together!

We are teaching Marilyn how to crochet, so look for some crochet scarves in the coming months!

After the get-together Mel and I had lunch and then went to see the Twilight movie!!

I LOVE the Twilight series of books and couldn't wait for the movie. I was not happy with the casting, but wanted to see it anyway and WOW, the actors did their homework. They may not have looked like I pictured the characters, but the personalities were definitely right. I know there are a lot of critics out there that are hating on the movie for various reasons. All I can say is, I didn't expect to like it, I am very pleased and I think I will definitely own and love this movie, although not for the same reasons as the book. That being said, there really was not a lot of time for character development, so for non-readers a lot of the little things may not have made as much sense.
