NERD ALERT!!!


My girly friends Leslie, Nora and Stacey attended the midnight release party at Barnes and noble for Breaking Dawn with me, ironically enough Leslie and I had purchased our books at Books A Million (way cheaper) but not enough people pre ordered so their party was cancelled. Apparently there are not enough Nerds in the Williamsburg area. Leslie and I sported our T-shirts (I couldn't find my iron on so I made my own it says "I'm not Switzerland-- team Edward" thank heaven for photoshop and iron on transfers haaa!) We took a picture beneath the balloon arch supposed to be for people dressed like they were going to the prom. There was only one really weird kid who literally wandered around the entire time in a black hooded cloak. He was totally there to pick up on Edward obsessed girls. Hilariously enough when we finally dragged our exhausted selves over to Books a Million the first thing we heard was a teen aged girl squealing on the phone to her friend in Utah about how she got the book first because we are two hours ahead time wise. I nearly died laughing, you gotta love the support us LDS show each other. We didn't recognize her so she was probably on vaca and apparently this was the highlight of her trip! I finished the book with in 36 hours and am now anxiously waiting for Chris to finish it (SUCH a supportive and sensitive hubby! He did start reading them before me though.) Luckily Chris had read the seventh Harry Potter first so it was my turn to know all the secrets of a book we found mutually interesting! Anyway I am a huge nerd but I really don't care, it was nice to get lost in a ridiculous fantasy world for a short time! Although there were times I wanted to kill Bella and her incessant teenage whining I am glad I finished the series! Here's hopping they break down and write a fifth!

How fun! I was going to go one of the release parties out here in Utah, but Wes wasn't really into going with me (I wonder why :)), and I didn't want to be too much of a nerd there all by myself, so I waited patiently until the next day to get my hands on a copy!! I just started reading it and I can't put it down! By the way, I love the shirt...super cute!

I went to a midnight release party and it was PACKED!!! Think Black Friday times 5!! I will be posting pictures on my blog soon. But they threw bouquets and everything, it was a wedding reception theme. I am totally jealous that you got it two hours ahead of me though!

Oh to be a nerd! Wait for it... Yes, I am a nerd, just a different kind of nerd. Was it all you hoped for and more? I just can't get into it- granted I've only read the first one. Maybe they get better. I'm all moved into my new apt. (clothes and everything) I'll send you my address.

Don't worry, I was busy being a nerd too! I was on vaca in North Carolina with my mom and sister, but we were even more lame and forgot and waited until almost 1am after playing family games before remembering and venturing out to pick our up. My mom had to literally BEG outside Borders for them to let us in to get our books because they had JUST closed. My sister and I pretended we didn't know her until they FINALLY relented and let us in to get them. My mom's awesome and she told us we were lame daughters for not helping her present a united front! I agree with her! Love your t-shirts!!!
