Breaking Dawn: It’s All Over the World!


As you might know I went to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn with one of my gal pals. It’s kind of our thing. I’m also glad we only have one more movie left as I’m not getting any younger and I poop out at 8:00 p.m. 

But I threw on my most PJ like attire, my Volturi cloak was at the Cleaner’s, and we made our way to one of the 8 screens showing the flick. We sat in our seats from 10:30 p.m. until showtime at midnight. We laughed. She ate smelly hotdogs that made me want to throw up on the Twilight moms in front of us, I ate a pretzel that had probably been over-microwaved. 

Good times.

My take on the movie? I liked it. I thought  the wolves talking through thought in the book was cool, but in the movie, it was kind of silly. But overall, I really enjoyed it.

 In fact, I went and saw it again with my husband, who yes, happens to like the movies and yes, I pray every day he doesn’t leave me for another man. I’m kidding. Not that I pray he will leave me for another man or even that he’ll leave me, I’m just saying he likes chic flicks and anything with vampires and wolves. It does annoy him that they sparkle, so I feel mildly safe. I did have to get all over some middle grade girls for flapping their gums and driving me nuts! 

“This can’t be possible,” Bella said.

“Mmmhmmm, yes it can, too,” the annoying middle grade brat said for every theater in a fifty mile radius to hear (not that I know how wide that is, it just sounds good). 

“If ya’ll don’t cut out the commentary, I’m going to go crazy on you,” said Jesse Patch as she thought, by getting the manager.

They shut up.

Earlier in the month, Hubster went to Thailand on a Missions trip and I do plan on sharing that trip with you when I can make him send me the pictures, ugh, but he did send me these because I nagged. I know guys hate it, but…it works. Although that could be grounds for leaving me for another man. 

Check this out:


Yep, he took these in Thailand, and yep, I hope they were for me and not him, but then, I did have to nag to get my grubby paws on them so…

 Have a great weekend! 

Did you see Breaking Dawn? What did you think?

  1. Oh, Jesse, Jesse, Jesse! You make me laugh so often and so hard.

    Breaking Dawn. Where to begin. I must be honest here. I need to see it again. Not because I liked it so much, but b/c I was my own form of Mystery Science Theatre while I watched it the first time. I was so busy providing commentary along with the mom beside me, that I'm not sure what even happened – well except that Jacob took his shirt off. A LOT!! (We were quiet though. No one yelled at us all mean and stuff – like some people do.)

    I thought Bella looked pretty when she was "dead" in the end. Her pinkish eyeshadow was cool.

  2. LOL! Great post, Jess! How cool your hubby went to Thailand. Thanks for sharing the pics. Looking frwd to hearing more:)

    Have a great weekend too!

  3. lol. I have not seen Breaking Dawn yet. Just watched the 3rd movie last week.

    I have read the books though. I was pretty much shocked that I liked them. I'm not much for vampires and wherewolves, but…

    And, yeah, I'm too much of a realist. I wouldn't go to a midnight showing if you paid me. Well, maybe I would for dark chocolate and sweet tea…

    Hmm, naw, not even for that. 🙂

  4. Heheheh, hilarious post. So kind of your hubby to get photos for you. Unfortunately, I'm not a Twilight-er at this point, but you never know, I could be persuaded someday. Either way, I'm pretty sure talking wolves would make me laugh…hehehe…

  5. The vampires – they're taking over the WORLD!

    I haven't seen it (and don't plan to – vampires aren't my "thing") but I am with you about the calling-out-the-talkers thing. I mean, really? That's what movie nights on the couch are for!

  6. I'm kinda embarrassed to admit I haven't checked out the Twilight craze yet. I think I'm afraid of how hard I'll get sucked in if I start. 🙂

  7. You are hilarious. I wish we lived closer.
    I have not seen ANY of the movies. In fact, I only read the first Twilight. I know, I'm a lame-o.

    Will pray for you!! I'm just doing the wrap-up and closing prayer. Easy peasy stuff. Guest speaker is a whole other ballgame. (Not to make you nervous!) LOL
    I will pray God will give you those words!

  8. I've seen the first two with my kids.
    I haven't seen the third.

  9. You. Crack. Me. Up.
    I just may read this post again.
    And your husband?
    Yeah, he's totally cool –and does he read your posts?

  10. HAHA! I laughed throughout the movie, cringed during the honeymoon scene, and thankfully the teens kept silent most of the time so they could hear the dialogue. Your husband is a keeper! 🙂

  11. Yup, I saw it. I was the one squealing when Jacob took his shirt off. 😉

    The wolf communication thing did not translate well on screen and was just a tad bit cornier than Edward's sparkly skin in the first movie.

    They picked a great place to end it, with Bella's red eyes opening. If they really wanted to toy with fans who hadn't read the series they could have stopped with her lifeless body on the table.
