Breaking Dawn

I went to a release party on Friday night for the new Twilight book, Breaking Dawn with some friends from my new ward. It was actually a lot of fun. They had a trivia scavenger hunt, a pin-the-tail on the werewolf game and a trivia showdown. It was fun to be there at midnight when we all got to rush in to buy the books. I hadn't pre-ordered one, so I was way at the back of the line, but one of my new friends (who also had not pre-ordered) won a raffle and got to be 5th in line and she was able to get one for me, so that I didn't have to wait. Thanks, Karen.By the way...four of the five women above are pregnant...there are 22 pregnant women in our ward at the moment. There must be something in the water!!
I ignored my family all of yesterday and part of today and finished the final book in the series. It was great...I can't wait to be able to discuss it, but I won't post any spoilers here yet. I am, however sad that the story of Bella and Edward has come to a close. I am always sad at the end of a series. But I am sure I will get over it, in time!

How fun that you already finished this! I can't wait to get my copy this week and marathon-read it, too! And I can't wait to talk about it with people. The MBASA book club should be this week so we can all chat about it now!

That is awesome. You have to check out my blog so you can see my blog about the Breaking Dawn Release I went to. I finidhed the book last night. It was good but it just did not do it for me like the other three did. What did you think?

Fun stuff. I'd never been to a release party before, but it was neat to be around a bunch of people who liked the same things I do. Glad to hear you made it up in the line, that would have been a long wait :).

Now I am wishing that I had gone to the release party around here. I am sad that its the end of the series too- but youre right- time heals all wounds. How nice for you to have so many friends in your ward already- and 22 pregnant women- wow! You look great though- not big at all.
