Some New Moon Twi-Tastic Fun!

Wow! The day we have been waiting a year for has arrived! New Moon lives up to the hype and high expectations of the fans.

The night started at 6pm with a fun gathering at Julie's- complete with some Italiano cuisine, mint chocolate Forks cake balls, sliced apples & Edward ice cream pie! A very lively Twi-gift exchange kept everyone laughing while Twilight played on the Blue Ray.
Edward even made an appearance as Kathryn's date!

OME represented :)

The 11 of us made it to the theater by 8:30 and found a line formed! Thankfully they were prepared and didn't make us wait in line in the food court area very long. Management called out our theater number and we made the mad dash to find out place in line...the place we would have for hours!!! Yes, the wait was long, but it was so cool to share this experience with "friends"-everyone was in great spirits!

Oh, My Edward & 3 Days Till the Lining Up Starts!

Here's my ode to Edward in New Moon.
Though I missed him terribly in the book, his amazing reunion with
Bella in the conclusion made it all worth while.
I love this quote - reassuring her of his love.

Good Stuff Wednesday!

My family is so wonderful, so supportive of my OCD. In fact, my step dad is just fueling the flames! Here's what he brought for me and my daughter.
The Twilight movie board game and a bag of blood. LOL it's actually a fruit energy drink. I'm saving that for an extra boost staying awake for the midnight movie coming up. My hubby has actually challenged me to a game! Does he think he could really win??? Should I let him win? We all know who is the TwiMom in this house! He is a sweetie.

Here's the latest interview with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Lots of good questions asked!!!
Exclusive: Melissa Rosenberg on 'New Moon,' Edward's Proposal, and 'Breaking Dawn'Tue., Nov. 3, 2009 11:01 AM PST , by Jen Yamato

FEARnet spoke exclusively with Rosenberg from her home in Los Angeles, where she had recently returned from a whirlwind trip to Rome to unveil new footage for Italian Twilighters. Among other topics, Rosenberg discussed her favorite new scenes and explained how that proposal scene will be split between New Moon and Eclipse -- and that, if she were to write Breaking Dawn, the subject matter wouldn’t be a problem.

Have you seen the final cut of New Moon yet?

I saw an early cut of it, yeah. Some of the special effects weren’t there, stuff like that. But I have to tell you, it’s funny because for writers, and for me – I often will dread a director’s cut. As a writer, you have already seen the movie in your head. And the movie in your head costs a gazillion dollars; you can’t actually make the movie in your head, but you’ve seen it. And so, a director’s cut is almost always a disappointment because it’s not what you’ve seen in your head. It can be a major adjustment, it’s not what's in my head but this one’s different, but as good.

When I saw Chris’s cut, about ten minutes into the movie I started smiling. I thought to myself, I get to put my name on this. It was just so thrilling. It’s really good. I have to tell you, in all sincerity, it’s really good.

I saw you last on a set visit to New Moon’s Vancouver stages, and you had just arrived to watch the dailies. You seemed really pleased with what you were seeing from the Volturi scenes in particular.

Yes, and that was on a sound stage. The big screen version really lives up to it. It just looks lush and beautiful; it looks like a big movie. And the budget didn’t increase that significantly. Harry Potter budgets are what, $150-200 million? This is half of that, at least.

You’ve added a few scenes to New Moon that weren’t in the book, like the one where Jacob gives Bella a gift of a dream catcher. Can you tell us about that?

Actually, I got the idea from a writer friend of mine. I was searching around for that moment... You had to establish the relationship between Bella and Jacob; he can give her gifts and Edward can’t. The sort of easy friendship with the two of them, and yet also, show that Jacob actually has feelings for her. He sort of casually presents the dream catcher, but really he’s shopped around for it for quite a while. I wanted it to be something that was special to him and his culture, and it was so thematic to Bella; the movie is laden with her dreams. Her dream life is a very rich part of the film. So thematically, it really blended well. I thank my friend for coming up with that.

What’s one of your favorite new scenes or extended scenes that you’ve written into New Moon?

One of my favorites is actually the end, when they go to Volterra and confront a couple of Volturi. In the book, the conflict in that scene is verbal; there is an attack on Edward by Jane, and it works in the book, it’s beautiful in the book. It’s never acted out; it never explodes. For the movie, because it’s a visual medium, I felt like I wanted to externalize that conflict more, turn it into more of a battle. So it’s the same scenario, it’s just enacted and externalized. We get to see an actual fight.

We see that fight between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Felix (Daniel Cudmore) in one of the latest trailers, and with its slow-motion elements it looks great.

I’m telling you: Chris and his stunt guys and the DP are just fantastic. Daniel Cudmore, who plays Felix, did a tremendous job. I love Daniel Cudmore! Not only is he terrific in this role, he’s also just the greatest guy. Funny and charming.

In your script for Twilight, you wrote in a number of direct quotes from Stephenie Meyer’s book. Can we expect the same in New Moon and Eclipse?

There are definitely some quotes sprinkled throughout. In some cases I’m paraphrasing, but I do try to include as many as I can. It’s very important. It brings the flavor of the book into the movie, so I definitely try to.

Fans want to know: Did the proposal scene make it into New Moon?

The proposal comes into the end of New Moon, and that is the first proposal. Absolutely in Eclipse, the proposal when they’re on the bed, yes -- to me, that was a quintessential scene from the book. When Edward gets on his knees, with his mother’s ring, and she says yes -- that was one of the most romantic scenes that Stephenie wrote in all four books.

There are so many specific scenes and events in the Twilight books, it doesn’t seem like you could take them out and still remain true to the story.

Yes. There are several that are so essential to the storytelling that you absolutely must put them in.

Wyck Godfrey specifically said that if Breaking Dawn was made, it would absolutely be a PG-13 film, so it seems that staying true to that story’s specific events while making it suitable for younger audiences would be challenging.

Well yes, you have to know your audience. And... there’s no reason for it not to be. It could be PG-13.

Obviously by the fourth book in The Twilight Saga, there will be subjects and events that do seem unsuitable for the younger side of the Twilight audience. How would you tackle that challenge?

If I were to be writing that, I think there are many things that probably are inappropriate, and there are probably other things that can be implied. I don’t think that it will be a problem.

246 Days Till.....

If you guys think I am excited for New Moon- well, hang on to your apples, because Eclipse is my favorite! I cannot wait to see how they interpret the third book in the series.

Here's Alice!

So, this is one I dreamed about....tiny red, white, & black dice inside and all! It's so nice to have something I have thought about finally come to fruition.

"I'm betting on Alice."

I Broke! This is Clip is Awesome!

Yes, I am only human. This is exactly what I needed. Feeling better- just giving in to it all. LOL

New Moon Wolf Scene

I haven't watched it yet, but read the caption. My hubby was my eyes & he watched it for me, lol :) but I wasn't going to not post it for you guys! I'm trying so very hard to stick to my guns and keep a clear mind of new movie scenes.

Introducing Team Jacob

It is well known that I'm positively Team Edward, *snicker* but I know some Jacob fans out there. So this one is for you :) There will probably be a special place on my tree for it too. Enjoy! You can take this one home for $10.

And The Wolves Decend

Oooh! Look at Edward. Not looking thrilled! A new still released from New Moon today- must be from early on in the movie, seeing as Jacob's hair is long.

Ok, I'm feeling slightly conflicted. I am on pins and needles for this movie to open and love the clips being released to us "hungry for more" fans. But, are we getting too much? Do you feel like you have already seen the movie? If there was so much to give up as samples- why hold back and have the opening so far away? I mean the studio has been teasing us with clips since Comic Con! I know there's another clip to be shown during the Scream Awards. Twilight has a couple nominations and Taylor is presenting the clip.

But I think I'm done watching trailers, clips, looking at new stills, etc. This next month I want to "cleanse the palate" so to speak, so that when I do see the movie, I will be ready for the full experience.

How about you?
Anyone else on board?
It's gonna be a tough one!
Here ya go Julie ;)
I'd buy one!

OME Custom Ornament

I'm thinking this is pretty cool tribute to OME & my sorority sisters. I'm so excited about up coming events. The graphic is the women of Twilight, and the ribbon & red spheres are how we are all tied in together- separate spheres doing our thing,
with a common cause running through us.
This one is only for sale to OME sisters for $10 :)

Change of Plans!

Well, life changes, plan changes. Vegas out, hometown Houston is in! April is just around the corner and that's when the Official Twilight convention is happening. It's all happening! This event, no matter what city we decided to go to, has been in the planning for months now. What a great turn of events that our local OME sisters coordinated with Creation Entertainment to bring a con here. It will be a blast, or a ball- literally. There's a huge ball event that weekend! I have to start looking for a super cool dress & Twilight it up.

I couldn't be more excited to share this 3 day weekend with my Texas friends & OME sisters!

Twilight Inspired Ornaments

Ok, so ornaments aren't just for your Christmas tree anymore! I literally had a dream about making these and I have a million ideas and themes to work on. Really excited!

So, here's my first one "Why am I covered in feathers?"

You get your hand designed glass ball ornament in a cute velvet gift box (as supplies last) for $10 plus shipping, $8 if you are an OME sister ;)
Keep checking in on Life As A Twilight Mom for more themed decor. I'm raising my Twilight convention fun money. If there's a specific quote that you just love, let me know and we'll see if we can come up with a custom piece.

Fall is a Time for Change


Ok, nevermind the fact that Alice is being almost choked. I adore her hair in this movie! I'm seriously thinking of cutting mine to look something like it. Nothing like a cut & color to change a mood from summer to fall.

Whatcha think? LOL I think I'm gonna do it :)

Twilight Inspired Birthday Baking

So, today is Julie's birthday!
Stop over and read her latest post on Bella's Birthday Party & wish her a happy one too! While at the OME dinner last Saturday, Julie and I got inspired about party favors...and we collaborated till we came up with this concept. I had to see if this really worked and there was no better time than for her birthday :)
They are chocolate covered cake balls and fork. I wrote some fun Twilight Saga quotes on each fork too. Not bad for the first run :)

"Meet Me On the Equinox"

Here's the first release from the New Moon soundtrack...I love it!

Monday, September 14, 2009

Oh, It's Official!!!

Literally, I want to kick up my heels and sing
"I've got a golden ticket, I've got a golden ticket..!"
I will barely refrain, lol.

So, on a whim I checked the
AMC movie theater website in my area to see if maybe by some chance they posted when advance tickets for New Moon would be available.

Not only did they say when, they were on sale NOW!
No joke, so check out your local AMC theater's site.
Sweet Julie, ordered ourgroups tickets online quick.
Excited is an understatement.

Did You See It?! "New Moon" Extended Trailer

MTV also has a frame by frame walk through that's pretty cool.

Bella's Birthday Party

Today is Bella's birthday! The day she dreaded, the day that changed everything in New Moon. Getting older wasn't an option for her then...not so much anymore! I was invited by my good friend Alycia to take part in a big birthday celebration dinner at OutBack. O.M.E. is a Twilight sorority that she is leader in, so it was very sweet to invite me and let me bring my Twilight OCD gal pal Julie.
We were so warmly welcomed and felt apart of the group quickly.
Why wouldn't we?
This is a group of women who love the same things we do when no one else understands!

The party was complete with a gift exchange and
we were given Cullen crest pendants as well!

No birthday party is a real party without cake.
Edward was quite tempted by the vanilla :) I don't blame him, it was delicious!

I joined O.M.E. today! Very excited to do more with this wonderful group of ladies.

TwiCon Dates Announced!

I already booked my mom to hang with our 2 little boys that long weekend!
Are you READY?!
Registration isn't open yet, but I'm guessing it won't be long.

Monday, September 7, 2009


So, being home with the kids and us not feeling well on this 3 day weekend has left me in a mood. Thanks Twilight Guide friends for taking us along on your Vegas trip! This made me smile.
So here's their "What would Edward do?"

And can you believe I have a friend who owns this exact bed set?!
So very cool!
Happy Labor Day!

"Seth Clearwater" Dishes

He's a little cutie and has such a huge part in Eclipse.

And he gives us some juicy details...the Twilight Saga will be 5 movies total!
Whoa! Check it out!
What do you think will be after Breaking Dawn?
Or will they make 2 movies from BD?
I think that would be so smart of Summit.
BD has so much going on- definitely worth making 2 movies from.

Are You Buying This?

thanks to

"FIRST LOOK: Twilight Barbie Dolls Are Here!

Twilight Barbie Dolls Pink Label Collection

If Twilight-inspired greeting cards and clothing wasn’t enough to satisfy fan-pires’ desires, now they can add Edward Cullen and Bella Swan Barbie Dolls to their collections! As a tribute to the on-screen lovers, Barbie has created a set of dolls modeled after Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan. Featuring Robert’s strong jaw line and vampire-glow and Kristen’s long brunette hair and innocent face, the dolls are almost an exact replica of the stars. Looks like Bella’s wish for immortality is finally coming true! The Twilight Barbies, $25 each, will be available starting November 1, 2009 — just in time for the release of New Moon — at Walmart, and Mark your calendars! "

Ok, so this seems to anti Twilight to me.

Bella is supposed to be awkward and clumsy- no where near Barbie is. Hey, Edward could have fallen in love with Tayna or Rosalie if he was searching for seamless beauty, but he wasn't. I don't think I'll be buying this for my daughter and I think Mattel should read the books and give us "reality". Well, as much "reality" as you can from a fictional teenage vampire romance! lol
