What a week it has been!!

Wow, so much seems to have gone on in the Twilight world this week, where does a girl start!
Well, I guess a pic of Rob is as good as any huh!!!??


And we have the release in America of the New Moon chocolates...



I'll take 25 of Rob and 5 of Taylor thanks! Oh and throw in one of Kristen for prosperity. Anyone know where we can get hold of these down under???


Then we have the New Moon bookmarks, hmmm....
I'll have me some of these too! But, where can we get them? I need to know!


And of course Comic Con. Naturally living on another continent, in the wrong hemisphere made it nigh on impossible to attend (Oh for the lotto life!!). But we have been getting some great pics and video from all the wonderful people that could attend, lucky buggers! Though, when I think about it, it is probably a good thing that I didn't go, cause I would have been thrown out after smacking a few squeeling, shrieking teens in the mouth! Probably would have earnt a few assault charges too. *sigh* Can't these parents keep their noisy little what nots at home and leave the drooling to the mature adults?





These were a few of the releases at Comic Con and I want 'em all!!!

For the collectibility of course! And I ask you, why is there no shirtless Edward doll?




Or are the clothes removable???


Lots and lots of goodies to yearn after! I just need to sell about a hundred more things on etsy and I can't start buying up!! And again I say, Oh for the lotto life........
Just a reminder that this is the last week to get your entries in for the necklace and charm bracelet competition, just leave me a comment! I am starting to feel a little neglected over here.

All new New Moon clips... AWESOME

If you don't want to watch any spoilers, then don't go any further!!!
I am so excited and can't wait until November... hopefully I can go to a movie session during school hours and avoid all the screaming teenagers!

New Moon still and a little eye candy to end the week!

I'm sorry but I can't remember which wonderful blog posted this gorgeous pic of Rob, but it is one of the blogs shown on my blogroll (over on the right there, see it??)


And this one I found on newmoonmovie.org, my Twilight bible!
Things are a bit quiet on the Twilight saga front. I guess it will remain that way until filming begins for Eclipse, which I think is next month.
So, I was wondering, what are your plans for the release of New Moon? Are you having a big movie night with a group of like minded Twifans? Are you sneaking off from work to go during the day when there are no kids (anyone under 20!!!!)? Having a big party? Heading off to the US for the premiere? (oh how I wish that was me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).
What are your plans? I have a few in mind, all pretty lame, but don't forget, I am on the west coast of this humungous country and EVERYTHING ELSE IS ON THE EAST COAST! Except for the gorgeous Gil Birmingham, WA gets a big fat NOTHING!
So, if you have any ideas you can share with me, let me know.

Meeting Gil Birmingham @ Supanova

What an amazingly awesome time my friend Jo, my 2 girls Samara and Courtney and I had at the Perth Supanova convention yesterday.
As we arrived we found out that Gil was doing a talk in the seminar room, so we raced down there but only caught about the last 30 seconds! Bummer!!!! It looked like Gil had sung a song and we missed it. I tried to catch a photo, but mine didn't turn out too good. Luckily Jo managed to catch this one....

Then we wandered around for a while to check out the merchandise. I was disappointed not to find anything new, there was no New Moon stuff except for the poster which I already have. I ended up buying another puzzle, but that was all.
We decided to take the plunge and pay for an autographed pic and a photo. I will upload those later, but Jo caught some shots of Gil signing our pic.

Thats me standing there with the striped hoodie!! I was excited to be so close!!! But we were all very demure and restrained and did not squeel until later. Gil is a lovely guy, very friendly and down to earth. I was surprised by how tall he is and he looks so much younger in real life than he does in Twilight. He has the most amazing smile and an incredibly broad chest!!! I actually got to nestle up against that chest... only for the photo though. Because all 4 of us were in the photo with Gil, we had to squeeze in, what a shame!!!! I promise to get that pic up later today!


We also had our photo taken with some Star Wars characters....

(The gorgeous Jo, me and Courtney)

and had a blast checking out the local wildlife....


We couldn't believe the amount of people who came dressed up as characters (even vampires!) and just plain bizarre outfits! What a sheltered life I have led up until now. Just another way that Twilight has changed my life and opened it up to new and amazing experiences.
We all had an amazing time and it was a little strange to come home and back to reality.
Now I am planning for October and GO3...
A BIG thanks to the gorgeous Jo for all these photos and for sharing my obsession!

Been a little busy...

My baby turned 8 on Tuesday....



I have been obsessed with this puzzle, right up to this stage but have given up.... for now.




I took my girls to a West Coast Fever netball game, here is Jess (the mum-to-be), Kaitlin and Madison...


And in the middle is my Courtney with her friends Emily and Courtney (yea, I know, confusing!!!).



And here is Courtney on the keyboard at her music rocks concert.


Hoping to have a few exciting photos and lots of news tomorrow!
Stay tuned and Happy 4th July to all you Americal readers! Have a great weekend!
