Tonight Is The Night...

For this awesomeness...

That's right, I will be one of those people standing in line to see the midnight showing tonight!! I am so excited! I can't wait!

I actually read all of the books prior to the first movie coming out. I was really sad when the books ended but I knew that they were at least at that point making the first movie. So I had something to look forward too.

When the first movie came out, the bestie, Lou and I drove 45 minutes from where we were going to school at to go to a midnight showing of the first movie. Did we care that we both had classes the next morning? Nope! Did we care that we would be driving back home at 2:30 in the morning? Nope! We had to be there to see it at midnight and there was no question about that.

The night before we spent our time making these bad ass custom made Twilight shirts(yes we are dorks and we know it and we don't care) and talking about how excited we were. Well once we both got off work we grabbed some food and headed down to the town that Lou was from and where we were going to see this movie. We headed to the movie theater around 9 and sat in line for an hour and a half. Luckily we came prepared, haha! I brought a Sudoku book and my iPod and some homework. So while we sat there for two hours we were well entertained. Once we actually got into the theater, we grew more excited. An hour later it was finally time for the movie to start. Of course we loved it. What kind of fans would we be if we didn't. We had a blast that night and lets just say that a tradition was born.

The bad ass shirts we made!

The back of our shirts! The bottom says "I run with vampires"

Us in the theater waiting for the movie to start!

The following year when New Moon came out, we did the midnight showing again but in the town where we were attending school this time. Not to mention we brought a few of our friends along. We made our bad ass custom New Moon shirts and then went down to the theater early and waited again for the midnight showing. Again, it was awesome!

Unfortunately due to us being in different cities, we weren't able to continue this tradition for Eclipse, but we are once again in the same city so the tradition continues tonight for Breaking Dawn Part 1. The only thing that will be different is that we didn't have time to make our bad ass shirts, haha! We talked about it but both of us are so busy with life and wedding planning that it just didn't work out this time. 

I am so excited that we get to do this again tonight though.. I look forward to our little tradition when the new movies come out and I can't wait to see how great the movie is. The only thing that could make this night any better is if this girl 

Me and our friend Veronica

and this girl

Me and our friend Nicole
could join us. We miss you guys and wish you were going to be here!

Are any of you going to see the midnight showing tonight? Or did you never get into the books and the movies?



  1. I love it! I almost went last night by myself cause I couldn't find anyone to go with me. I dragged Groomzilla to the last one kicking and screaming and he basically fell asleep. I can't wait to go!

  2. Sigh unfortunately...I just can't get into them...I actually want to like twilight and I've tried to get into it..but I didn't like the first book, and haven't really enjoyed the movies. But I know I'm in the minority here...I hope it was everything you hoped it would be!!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
