The first official trailer for Twilight is out! How awesome does this make the movie look? I was wondering how it would be based on the actors/actresses that were cast ... but this confirms that the right people were chosen. Doesn't Edward look perfect ... exactly as I had pictured him based on his description in the book. I can't WAIT until 12/12/08.

Don't know what I'm talking about or what this movie is about? You mean you haven't read the Twilight series of books by Stephenie Meyer? Go out and get them RIGHT NOW! There are 3 - Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. They are SO good, you won't regret it. A lot of people have been turned off to them based on the fact that technically they are Young Adult novels, and that they are about vampires - but I can tell you, they're so much more than that. Most of the people that I know that love them, in fact, are grown women. And people are fanatical about them - as evidenced by the website Twilight Mom's (www.twilightmoms.com). A whole website made by married women with children where they profess their love for Twilight! It's hilarious!

Also, Stephenie Meyer's new book, The Host, comes out today. I am picking it up today and I'll write more about it once I've read it. But it sounds so good, too. (I think people are going to like it - based on the fact that there are 976 holds on it as of this minute in the Salt Lake County library system!) Then the 4th Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, comes out August 2nd.


  1. Oh I am ALLLLL over it! The trailer and the book ;)

  2. Most people have not liked the trailer and think that they are going to not like the movie, but I think that it looks good and can't wait for the movie to come out. To bad we can't see it together.

    I hope The Host lives up to the hype!!!

  3. I should really go to get this series. I am sad to admit that i don't read very much anymore, but wished I did. Maybe this will be my start back into it :)!

    Your garden is so fun! I can't wait to see it all in bloom.

    Looks like the concert was fun! Cute pic of you and your cousin.

    Mason's sandbox looks like a dream come true for my boys! Oh, how they would love something like that! I am glad he is enjoying it.

  4. Wow, it looks really good! The books are good?...maybe i will read the books and then i can watch the movie come december! So there are 3 books...and more coming??

  5. Hey, I was ROBBED!!! When I tried to start the trailer, it said it was no longer available...... Can you say "miffed"?

  6. Mom, It looks like it's still up at YouTube? Try going to this link directly:

  7. Thx, Erin. I found it. Guess there will be huge lines at the theatres in December, me included.

  8. I love these books! I'm a little unsure about the actor playing Edward...but I'm sure if I were a 16 year old reading the books watching the trailer I'd feel a lot differently ;)

  9. People don't like the trailer? Are they smoking crack? I mean, so far, I'm not sure I've seen a movie adhere as closely to the book as Twilight is. Kristen and Rob are SO incredibly perfect as Bella and Edward -- that point was made abundantly clear in the trailer.
