Bella Who?

On Nov. 18, Megan and I got dressed up in our finest winter attire for the opening night of Breaking Dawn. Looks like Megan's personal invite from Edward arrived just in time!

Since it's a tradition to pose in front of the Twilight movie posters, we kindly asked two strangers to step aside so we could get up close and personal with Edward and Jacob. Oh, wait...Jacob's not on this movie poster! Just that skinny Bella chick. Luckily, we figured out a way to enhance the poster...

When you're snuggling with a cold-blooded vampire, it helps to wear layers!
Now it's Megan's turn to cozy up to her favorite leading man!
Our finest winter attire had another purpose this night. As soon as we snapped these photos, we walked outside and were greeted by the first snowstorm of the season. It was a slow process driving home, but it's not every day you get your picture taken with with a sparkly vampire. Go Team Edward!

Your Humble Servant, Edward

It's hard to believe it's been two years since Megan and I posed in front of this movie poster. As underground Twi-hards, we've seen all of the Twilight movies together. So what if the acting is so-so and the median age of most audience members is 14. We enjoy our Team Edward vs. Team Jacob rivalry too much to care what critics or our parents think. And by parent I mean my dad. I can guarantee my 56-year-old mother will be sitting with us on opening night! I probably should adjust that median age, huh?

So when I came across this entry for Paper Crafts magazine's annual World Card Making Day Contest, I knew it was meant for a higher purpose. It was meant to be Megan's invitation to the next Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn!
FYI: I only called dibs on this card after it didn't make the final cut in our contest. Jolayne Harris, for what it's worth, I think you card is fang-tastic!
Jolayne even included two bite marks on the inside of her card!
To draft the invite's text, I downloaded a font that looks exactly like Edward's handwriting. And just how do I know what Edward's handwriting looks like? You'll have to read the books to find out!

My phone number has been blurred to protect Edward's privacy. You wouldn't believe how crazy fans get these days!
With just 4 days 'til opening night, Megan better rsvp soon! If not, Edward might think she's switched to Team Jacob!
