Best Night of My Life:)

Well, close!
I don't even know where to begin. Well, most of you know I love the Twilight series...this is the point where some of you I'm sure will stop reading!! A group from school got together and watched New Moon, so we planned to do the same for Eclipse and decided to be true fans and go to the midnight fun! Christy decided to throw a little pre party and the movie (through the power of fate I'm sure) just happened to come out on my birthday!!!! Therefore, the party turned into the best birthday party I've ever had thanks to Taylor, Christy and Heather!! Due to this party...I am now the proud owner of a full size cardboard replica of Edward Cullen!! (more on that later)
At the party we had great food, great drinks, great friends and great fun! Then we headed up to the theater 3 1/2 hours early to get a good seat...I was worth it! Here are some highlights...Christy has lots more on her blog and will continue to post I'm sure.

This wonderful life size Edward greeted me at the door of the party and thanks to the lovely hostesses...I got to take home:) Christy is sure Shane will never let me go to her house again after taking him home! Here is Edward meeting Shane in the kitchen the next morning offering to make coffee. Shane hit the three-point stance when he rounded the corner and was ready to tackle him!

Laura was trying her best to hurt Edward...but don't worry team, I protected him! Everyone was looking at us a little weird when we were doing this but Taylor assured them they could ignore us, we'd been doing these "photoshoots" for years!

Me with the fabulously creative party planners!

If you haven't noticed, we all have matching shirts. (We teach elementary...I know it's sooo obvious.) We had mostly team Edwards (whoo-hoo), 2 team Jacobs, 1 Switzerland because she couldn't decide, 1 I'm here for the popcorn, and Stacey opted for the oh so true "I'm here with the crazies"

You can't see the tag, but the girls put rock candy in champagne that made it fizz and sparkle and the tag read "REAL men sparkle" HA!

Here is an up close of the wolf cupcakes

Here is my birthday tower!! It had my favorite book Breaking Dawn on the top, then wolfs, fang bites, and creative are they????

Edward when he greeted me at the door. I see many great things with Edward in the future...standing by the Christmas tree with a Santa hat...wearing the turkey headband at Thanksgiving...wondering if it's too much to take him to my classroom with a sign that says "Be good or I'll bite you". However, I do forget I am now his owner and when I fly around the corner, he has made me scream a time or two!

My birthday sign made by Tater. How fortunate am I that my name is so close to Cullen:)

I love that your friend brought her cross to the party. ;o) I'm so glad your parents were thoughtful enough to arrange to have you 20++ years ago in conjunction with the Eclipse made it that much more fun!!! I really don't think I can wait more than a year for the next one!!

What a fun way to spend a birthday!
Happy late birthday.
This is the first Twilight movie I haven't seen on opening night! Can't wait to see it.
