Twilight Convention

So for those of you who know me know it's absolutely no secret how big of a Twilight Saga fan I am. And while I really try hard to keep this blog about the boys, I've had too many people ask me about my trip so I decided to post it.
So let's go back to where it all started... ;)
Last October everywhere you looked there was hype regarding a movie coming out called Twilight. I knew that it had originated from a book but to be honest had no interest in reading it. Not because it was about vampires, no I LOVE stories of vampires, werewolves, monsters and magical powers. I love reading stories that can take you into a whole other world. And I remember it beginning when I was young thanks to my dad. I remember so well watching the Lost Boys for the first time, I was hooked. The reason I didn't care to read it was because it was classified for young adults and teens and being honest I thought it'd be boring. BUT a few weeks before the movie came out I finally had to know what the big deal was all about and decided to read it. I couldn't believe how much I fell in love with the story and characters and in less than 2 months read all 4 books. Now it would've been sooner I know but remember I had one year old triplets to take care of! LOL
So since then I've collected Twilight items, joined, met some wonderful ladies who some are now close friends and then just recently went to the convention. Everyone wants to know what Adam thinks of the whole deal. He teases me every now and then but in the end says I could have worst addictions. ;D

So last Friday morning at 5am I took off and headed north first stopping in Indy to pick up a friend and fellow Twilight Mom Pam. We were off and ecstatic. Once we arrived I think we were both in shock that for one we were away from home, (it was my first time away from the boys) and that two there was such a place to fuel our obsession. LOL
Friday was such a good time. We got check in and walked around to vendors selling items. Went to panels with actors and others related to the saga. We met Tinsel Korey and Charlie Bewley. Then Friday night went to a concert which was a blast! By the way Tinsel Korey who will play Emily in New Moon performed and did amazing. She has such a beautiful voice. Go check out her myspace! My personal favorite is Into the West.
Saturday was the day I was looking forward to the most because as most of you know I'm "Team Jacob" and love the wolf pack. It was their turn to show up on the panel and a chance for us to meet them. We also met Michael Welch and Justin Chon who play Mike and Eric for those of you who have seen the Twilight movie.
That night me and Pam then met up with fellow Twilight Moms. It was so cool finally meeting these ladies who we had been talking to online. :)
Sunday the convention continued but me and Pam headed home. It was so much fun and we had a awesome time. We're already looking forward to next years convention which thankfully will be in Indy. Less driving, closer to home and way more convenient!
So for right now we're counting down to November 20th when New Moon is released. And for those of you who are wondering....YES, I'm going to the midnight premier and have already bought my ticket. ;D
Just a heads up for anyone local interested in seeing the midnight showing. 12:01 & 12:04 is sold out but they have added on another showing for 12:07. To me it's dumbfounding to think that it's still a month away until the movie and theaters are selling out everywhere.
