Twilight

Lucky for me, my friend Tara had an extra ticket to Good Things Utah the day Stephenie Meyer was visiting and talking about her new book the Host. I have always thought it would be fun to go to a GTU taping, but lucked out a got to see S.M. as well. She was so cute and so matter of fact. I was glad I finally finished Twilight before I went, although I didn't dare tell the rest of the gals there for fear I would have been strung up by my toes. There are some serious fans out there.
Tara also gave a ticket to Katie, and we were able to meet up and talk in person (We mostly have met up in the blogging world). It was so fun to visit with her. We decided we needed a picture (for our blogs of course) so we asked Mike McKay to take our picture. His reaction was so classic, "Me? take your picture?" His poor ego....We decided to make him feel better we should get one with the 'famous Mike McKay' as well. One time Jay and I asked one of his players if he would take a picture (meaning of our family) and he went and stood next to Jay and the kids and waited for me to take the picture....So I did and then asked if he would take one with all of us in it. So funny....
Here is the pic of all the "Twilight moms". (Tara, Katie and I are not official members, yet :) I guess there is a site just for moms who love this series. Katie was even asked to put her pics on there. The biggest surprise to me was how down to earth and willing to visit the girls of GTU are. They acted like we have always been friends and we were just catching up. They were so cute! Thanks for ticket Tara! I had so much fun! Katie, we will have to meet up again, soon!

One day I am going to have to read these books...I see there is a movie coming out. Is it the same thing? Fun times, I miss GTU.

The new book is good- really good. Thanks for lending it to me. Isn't there seriously a club for everything nowadays? let's form a frumpy grumpy mom's club. That's more my style.

It was a lot of fun wasn't it?! Thanks for having Emily come down to baby-sit so you could go to the show and by chance I was able to catch a ride back up to Ogden with her for the half marathon! All things happen for a reason:) Still haven't even glanced at Host yet...oops!
