WooHoo and Argh!


I had a post planned today with pictures, but our internet is SOOO slow for some reason today; so, you get this little narrative instead.


First, the WooHoo! I am totally and completely addicted to the "Twilight" book series. Oh my gosh! My friend Kathy gave me the first book in the series to read three weeks ago. She was all like, "They're so good. It's about a high school girl who falls in love with a vampire." And, I was like, "OK, like I'm ever really going to read this."...in my head of course. Well, I didn't have a book to read last week (and I can't get to sleep without reading for a few minutes...otherwise, I think of a bill that needs sent off, the gross stuff that grows on the bottom of the shower curtain, and why my husband makes lists and lists and lists of things to do at work that he never takes to work with him). So, I picked up the book the other night and thought I would just read enough to get to sleep. And, guess what! I'm addicted!!! It's SOOOO good! Who would have thunk it?


So, here's the ARGH!.... This book is monopolizing all of my free time!!! I got done with the first book yesterday before church, started the second one at 1:00 pm and read until 2:30 am this morning! The only break I took was to watch the movie of the first book! Seriously, I am dragging today, but due to the restorative features of caffeine, I have still managed to be accomplishing for a Monday. All I can think about is getting started on the third book! So, if I don't post all week, please know that it's because my nose is stuck in one of the Twlight novels. Just kidding. There's a little teaser picture below of my niece Amelia's last photos we did this past month with my new all-white background. There'll be more from that session later this week.


Until then, in the spirit of my friend Brigit (and fellow Twilight-addict), "Hi, my name is Kelly, and I'm a Twilight ADDICT!"




I think Amelia is saying, "Go buy the Twilight books and be a nutcase like my Aunt Kelly!!!"

I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos of Amelia!! That one is a riot so I can only imagine the selection you have to pick from. You have to post more!!

Brigit said...

Kelly-You(and I) have a little thing I like to call Twilight Sickness. It's really OK!!! It will pass once you get over the last book being done. I can't wait until you get done with Breaking Dawn and we can discuss!

Kelly said...

Yes, Brigit, we're going to have to go eat lunch and discuss it since none of my sisters will read the book so that I can obsess over it with them!!! I can't put it down! I had to start watching the movie again this morning when I was feeding Colby at 5 am!

And, yes, for the rest of you who refuse to join in on my Twilight passion, more pictures of Amelia coming!...either later today or tomorrow!...and they're so darn cute of her!

The twilight series has completely overtaken my life, too. I just started the third book last night. I can't wait to get home from work to read more.

I guess I'm going to have to borrow the books from Katy to see what all the hype is about!

Can't wait for more pictures of Amelia...

Hi my name is Bethanie and I am a Twilight addict! I never thought it would be something I liked, but I gave it a shot, became obsessed and bought them all. I finished the whole series last year ! I think I finished the first book in a day ! Went to the theater to see the movie, and have seen it several time since ! Can't get enough of Edward ! I am counting the days untill the second film, and am thinking about re-reading the books, since it's been awhile!
I feel so much better knowing that I'm not the only one :)

When I saw your headline I was a little confused, but after hearing about the Twilight books, I totally understand!! I read all four of them in a week because I was completely obsessed!!!! I was up all night going to the bathroom anyways, (this was before Henry) so I just stayed up and read! LOVED THEM!!!! I am sure you are going to love them!!! Hopefully Colby will get fed and changed, because I don't think I did any housework that entire week!! ENJOY!!!

I'm wondering where the "cousin" pictures are?!?!?!? I thought you were going to post some of them a weekend or two ago! Do they go along with Amelia's?

Hi Kelly~
Gabbi got me addicted to the books also. I read all 4 of them, and just got done re-reading them!! We stood in line at midnight the night the movie released onto dvd for her to have it!! I've watched it a million times! I love the way Stephenie Meyer can describe a raindrop as a glistening diamond....and of course, my old-fashioned, proper Edward...so yes, I'm a Twilight addict and McCormick Blogstalker...but it's not like that's those are bad things!
Take care! Mindy Wendling

Hate to interrupt the Twilight craze but I was just wondering when we would get to see some cousin pictures as well! I'm anxious to see them and have tried so hard to be patient!!!!
I will have to check out this movie since I always have intentions of reading but never do it!!
Thanks!
