Adventures in Twilightland
First, we want you all to know that we realize there is more to life than Twilight. We don't spend every waking moment talking and thinking about Twilight, but it is near and dear to our hearts.
Within this blog you will find our Twilight musings, declarations of adoration, and all sorts of other silly Twilight-related nonsense. And to all you other Twilight fans, we'd love to hear from you.

Best of Both Worlds - Part 2

Big T trolled around a second time to see what sort of unique Twilight Saga goodies are being offered now that "New Moon" has been released in theaters.

These cute bookmarks come in a set of 12 from Keep some for yourself and share the rest with your favorite Twilight friends!

Get this custom iron-on decal from and brag to all your pals about the awesome date you and Jacob had last night!

Shout it loud and proud that you are Team Jacob with this cute vinyl sticker for laptops. Snatch one up at today.

This sculpture set represents the struggle between Edward and Jacob for Bella's heart. Who will be the ultimate victor? See for more info.

Add some class to your house or apartment with this Andy Warhol-esque poster of Edward. Can also be printed in black and white for you "serious" types out there. is the place to go for this eye-popping awesomeness.

Doesn't that brooding stare make you want to spill all of your secrets? You can scribble your sweet nothings to Edward within the pages of this beautiful journal from Full disclosure: the talented woman who makes these journals is a friend of mine, but just because she hangs out with riff-raff like me shouldn't stop you from snagging this bad boy.

I'm not a drinker, but I might reconsider that choice if someone gave me these wine glass charms from Hello, Cullen men!

Werewolf instructions made easy by! My undying love of Edward aside, I may have to get one of these iron-ons just for the fun of it.

Giving Back

Edward is now back from his vacation in Florida as he was hanging out with Little T and Big C the other day. I, however, have not seen hide nor hair of him. Our favorite little vampire must have read my last post and sensed my annoyance, though, because I got an interesting email from him this morning.

Seems Edward felt guilty about causing me such distress during our camping trip with the students and he wanted to prove to me that he isn't selfish and lazy. He wrote that upon further reflection of the situation, he wanted to make amends with me by mentoring student readers.

Oh Edward, you know me well. Doing something that encourages children to read is a sure way to my heart.

Edward and Jesse listen as Zane reads from "The Foot Book". Fun Fact: Edward is a big fan of Dr. Seuss and he owns a copy of every Seuss book printed!

Trying to help Zane figure out a word, Edward gives him a visual clue.

Zane, I'd be smiling too, if Edward was reading with me.

A Camping We Will Go

Edward is a pretty lucky guy. Whenever Big T or Little T get roped into a field trip for work, he usually gets to travel with us.

Back in October, Big T went with a group of students to an overnight camp for 3 days and 2 nights. Edward, who likes to think of himself as an outdoors man, jumped at the chance to get away from the city and offered to help wrangle children.

As you can see from the pictures below, he spent more time eating than actually communing with nature or assisting kids.

Scoping out the snack machine while the students learn about pond creatures. He kept bumming quarters off me to get KitKats.

According to Edward, s'mores taste best on a moonlit night. He was our designated golden brown marshmallow cooker since he could sit so close to the fire for long periods of time without being bothered by the constant smoke and sparks.
Keeping up his human appearances, Edward dutifully eats a plate full of enchiladas and churritos while a student looks on. He plans on munching some "real food" later that night.

Basking in the warm glow of the lights, Edward enjoys his real dinner after our campers went to bed.

Overall, Edward was more of a hindrance than a help on this trip. He would steal the girls' stuffed animals and make them sing or recite poetry for him in order to get their toys back. I caught him trying to sneak into the animal exhibit more than once during our stay, but of course he just wanted a closer look at the tortoise - sure, Edward. And he insisted on sleeping in the top bunk in our cabin, even though he knew I really wanted it. The final straw was when he rummaged around in my overnight bag to steal my reading book because he forgot his at home.
As much as I adore Edward, I don't think he'll be joining me on any more camping trips.

Time Keeps on Slippin'

Again the real world has overtaken my life, leaving little time to report on Twilight saga news. Of course Little T and I went to the midnight screening of New Moon. Our group of teen girls, ladies, and two lucky teen boys had fun chatting in the dark theater, playing with our Twilight action figures, and taking pictures until the movie began. I won't go into too many details since I plan on creating a separate post.

Edward and Jacob joined Little T and myself at a wedding back in November. It was a lovely ceremony and the best reception I've ever attended. It may have had something to do with the fellas that were with me, but I could be wrong. Again, that will get a whole post.

What else, what else... oh, yes! Edward journeyed to Chicago for a getaway with Little T and Big C. He occasionally likes to visit his human hometown. And he also has been spending some time at Disney World. He left a few days ago and I'm not sure when he'll be back. Jacob and I have been spending some one on one time together and I can now relate to Bella's predicament.

These posts will be coming over the next week or so, whenever "real life" gives me a few moments to catch up. Enjoy the holidays! ~Big T
