Bella's Birthday

Well, it is that time again. Time to celebrate Bella's Birthday! Our beloved Bella is 18 again and so we thought what better excuse to get together and enjoy each other's company and who doesn't like a good Birthday Party. Here are the particulars:

The When: Saturday, September 11, 2010 6pm to 9pm
The Where: La Madeline - the usual one in Round Rock
The Why: because we miss each other

We thought a gift exchange would be appropriate for a birthday party so if you would like to play along, bring a gift - the limit is $5 and the theme this year is something Bella would use.

If you think you are coming, go ahead and post here or contact Nancy, Jessica, Lauralee or April with questions. You can reach us on Facebook or TMs.

CSN Stores

Recently I hosted a give on Mundie Moms (which ends tonight) for a $60 gift certificate to CSN Stores. CSN stores have over 200 online stores where you can find everything from dinnerware to bookcases to sofas and kitchenware and more! It's the perfect site to find whatever it is you're looking for to add to your home. Believe me, I'd love to get some of their floor to ceiling bookcases to display all my books, including the Twilight ones.


Since we're finishing up with remodeling our home from when our water heater exploded, I'm looking forward to reviewing some products for CSN and sharing my review on here. It's tempting to try and use the excuse, that it would be great to get a new dinning set so that we can have TM get togethers here and have room for everyone.

* No compensation was received for posting this, but I am receiving a gift certificate to use to review a product for CSN. These opinions are my own.*

Thank you!



















Thank you so much for everyone who came to our sold out show! With all 178 movie goers there, we were able to raise $509 for The Alex Lemonade Stand!

Thank you SO much to everyone who was apart of making this happen. Thank you to Candice for putting the beautiful ALS baskets together, and to Jennifer for purchasing the ALS merchandise. Thank you to the wonderful Twilight Moms who donated items for each basket and to everyone who bought raffle tickets!

We had a great time and are looking forward to seeing everyone next year for Breaking Dawn!
Thank you to all the TM's who helped me out the night of the release! I really appreciate it!!

More Raffle Bags

Thank you to a wonderful friend of mine, author Shannon Delany, who's donated us to our raffles for ALS. Shannon's debut book, 13 To Life went on sale last week and I highly recommend it. It's a great YA paranormal book with werewolves. If you took the Cullen family relationship, turned them into wolves and gave them a Russian heritage, you'd have the wolves from 13 To Life.

Here's the two raffle bags and all the books are signed EXCEPT Breaking Dawn.

See you guys TOMORROW NIGHT!! We can't wait.

*big plush wolf is NOT included in the raffles. He's part of a ransom that we'll be doing
during tonight's chat w/ Shannon on Mundie Moms, to support wolf conservation.*

What's not allowed is two people waiting in line to save a whole row. We had a lot of problems and complaints about this last year and had to pull in chairs due to people saving seats and then not using all the seats).

** We will have a wait staff provided by the Alamo Draft House. Food and drinks are NOT part of your paid ticket, and are extra.

** NO cameras or videos are allowed into the theater. Please know that if you're caught with them, you will escorted from the showing and you will NOT receive a refund.

** Please make sure YOU HAVE YOUR TICKET. You don't have your ticket, you will not get in. IF a name has changed on the ticket, please let us know, as we will have a list w/ everyone's name on it, and if someone tries to enter who's name is not on the list, they will NOT be allowed in. This is a private event and only those names on the list will be allowed to enter.

** We have wonderful raffle baskets for The Alex Lemonade Stand. Raffle tickets are $1 and 100% of the proceeds goes to ALS. CASH only for the raffle tickets.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you next week. *sorry for the all caps, we want to make sure everyone saw the regulations for movie night. :D

Thank you,
Katie and Jennifer

Latest Eclipse Info

Hey everyone! I wanted to post this here, so no one misses it. I wanted to answer a few questions and let everyone know what's going on. Sorry nothing is posted yet. We had some link issues we're trying to fix.

Questions and Answers-

* Eclipse will be the night of the 29th, but shown at 12:01 am on the 30th. Which is how it was for both Twilight and New Moon.

New Moon DVD Party March 20th


Nancy, Lauralee and I have been busy planning the DVD party. The party will be on Saturday, March 20th. It starts at 6:00pm at Nancy's house. We will have some fun games including NM Bingo and all the board games, will watch all the outtakes and extras then start the movie. We thought long and hard about food and decided on your favorite comfort foods - you know the food you rely on when you are down or just need comforting so bring your favorite comfort food. And if you want something specific to drink, bring that too.

We also thought it would be fun to have little goodie bags to be filled at the party. We have some ideas but we thought it would be fun for each person to bring something little to put in the goody bags then each person would take one home. It could be candy or pins/buttons, or whatever you think - store bought or hand made are all welcome. Since NM is the plan for the night, make is something NM if possible.

We think it will be loads of fun and a great chance to get together. Post here if you are coming and if you already know what you will bring for food, post that too. If you need directions, email Nancy or contact her via Facebook or pm her on TMs (screen name is TwiChica) and we will see you there!

Breaking Dawn News




Deadline Hollywood reports that Breaking Dawn will be made into two movies - WooHoo.

Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood is reporting that she’s received confirmation that Breaking Dawn will be made into two movies:

I have this from several sources, and it’s definitive. Filming on the back-to-back movies would begin in mid-October, and Summit Entertainment is looking at “high end” directors.

Although this story is being picked up by various outlets, Summit is still officially saying that “no decision has been made.”

Here is the article:
