I was surprisingly stoked about the whole thing. Usually I’d avoid scenes of excessive Twilight fangirl-ism for many reasons. Maybe it was the promise of a night out with my sisters—away from kids and cleaning and responsibility—that was so appealing. Maybe I didn’t think my quota for ridiculous, screaming girls was quite full enough. Whatever the reason, I anxiously awaited Thursday night and my temporary Twilight fanaticism.
We got to the theater in enough time to find a good parking space but not so early that we’d have to sit and wait surrounded by all of the crazies.

|They ACTUALLY wore these clothes in the movie! *SWOON*|
|It's like two Kit Kats in one! Jackpot!|
|Note my burgeoning belly|
|Again, the belly|
|I may or may not have teared up during this preview because I'm SO excited!|
I can’t say that I had high expectations for this movie. All of the previous Twilight movies were overhyped and underwhelming. However, I only found myself laughing at a few of the “serious” parts and cringing only half as much as I expected. I can honestly say it’s the best movie of the series. Of course, it was probably so enjoyable because I was surrounded by some of my closest friends, we were saturated with caffeine and artificial butter flavoring, and it was after midnight. But, whatever the reason, we had a most excellent time and are already planning a girls’ night for the release of the final movie (a year from now).
Maybe by then we’ll have worked ourselves up to dressing up for the occasion (NOT LIKELY).
