If you had to assign a caption to the photo below, what would it be?
We were looking for: "Melanie went to see Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 on Friday with sister Amanda, and [to the dismay of sister Amanda] was proudly representing Team Jacob."
Oh yes I did. Amanda (an avid supporter of Team Edward) was soooo excited to arrive at the theatre with THAT. Am I in love with Taylor Lautner? Yes. Do I enjoy any scene where he's shirtless? Sure. Do I want to marry a werewolf? Obviously. I heard on the radio the other day that Taylor gets an additional $20k for each scene where he's shirtless. He made some good money this time around. Those pecs are quite an investment.
Amanda and I went to the 8:55pm showing of the movie. The day after it came out. And seated behind us were 2 women with 3 young girls, the little chippies averaging about 6 years old, maybe? Okay, ladies. If you're that much of a Twi-hard, maybe you should find a babysitter instead of subjecting the theatre to your children throughout. the. entire. movie. And maybe you shouldn't even have your 5-year-old watching a bunch of bloodsucking vampires ripping each other's heads off (the fight scene in the end is awfully graphic and disturbing, even for adults).
Clue #1 that your daughter doesn't belong at the theatre watching Breaking Dawn:
she shouts, "Oh look, mom! Justin Bieber!"
when Robert Pattinson appears onscreen for the first time.
The movie was okay; definitely 1.5-star-worthy (at best). I'm a little bummed that this marks the end of the Twilight saga. Booooo. But all good things must come to an end. Side note: During the opening credits, the casting director (Debra Zane) is listed.... I'm sorry, but should she even have been paid for this one? I feel like casting the fifth Twilight movie is sort of in the bag. Talk about easy money. Was it really that difficult to determine who should play Edward?
I picked up a free turkey yesterday. My company gives each employee a turkey for the holidays. I was planning on donating mine, but my family (all carnivores) wanted me to grab a turkey for our Thanksgiving meal. So here I sit, a dishonorable herbivore with a heavy heart, all because of the 14.36 lbs of treason thawing in the fridge upstairs. I am ashamed of myself.
This past weekend was a busy, whirlwind weekend. I was even able to sneak in a few photo shoots for some friends. (how adorable are they?)
Something tells me this coming weekend will be just as busy. If you're traveling this week/weekend, have safe travels! And have a happy Thanksgiving. I know you all have much to be thankful for, so take some time to say thanks for the fabulous things in your life.
