Happy Thanksgiving

Trixie and I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so thankful for all of you. Running this blog would not be nearly as fun if you guys didn't stop by, read, and comment. We really appreciate every one of you!

We are also thankful for Twilight for bringing us all together. Rob is also at the top of our thankfuls list...as well as Rob P0rn.

Hope you all have a great day with family and friends!!

Loves,
Trixie and Tess

IRWTSMN - Check Up

Hello, Lovelies!

How was your weekend?  Ours were busy, as usual.  The next week or so will probably be hit-or-miss for us.  With the holidays coming around, our blogging will be sporadic, but we will try to check in and post as often as we can.  For those of you who won a giveaway in the past few weeks, your goods should be delivered (except for rpfangirl - going in the mail today!).  Please let us know that you got your stuff.  I sent everything via Fed-Ex, so I can track any shipment.

How is everybody doing with the IRWTSMN diet?  I know holidays are the hardest.  For me, the downward spiral starts about Halloween and it finally ends around New Year's night.  That's when I make my NEW resolution that I "won't be this fat this time next year...blah, blah, blah."  Well, I'm going to try to not do too much damage this year.  It's just that much more that I'll have to take off and this is too much work to add any unwanted pounds.

Here's are my tips for the holidays:
  1. *Fill your plate with healthy options and just take a small portion of the more fattening dishes.
  2. *Wear tighter fitting clothes, so that you won't feel like you can stuff yourself...leave that for the turkey.
  3. *Spend more time visiting with family than eating food.
  4. *And always, always remember...what IF ROB WERE TO SEE ME NAKED??
  5. *AND NEVER leave home without these..

Now how is that for some motivation to get your through the holidays?!

A HUGE thanks to Kelly from My discomROBulation.  Thank you so much, Kelly!

How are you holding up through the holidays?

Twilight Convention In Pictures

Hello, Lovelies.  Sorry we've been MIA this week.  
Real life is such crazy sometimes.  
Trixie is have THE.WORST.TIME.EVER with her Internet connection, making it nearly impossible for her to post on the blog or comment on blogs...basically anything to do with the Internet.  So, say a small prayer for Trix and her Internet.  I have been trying to recuperate from the Twilight Convention.  I think I got a total of 6 hours of sleep the whole time I was gone.  Plus, I had to drive 5 hours home...alone.  It was exhausting, but oh-so-worth it!  This week I started righting on another blog.  So, now I have TNT, my personal blog, and a once-a-week post on a group blog.  What have I gotten myself into?!

I'm going to try to get caught up over here by showing you all the pictures from the Twilight Convention.

Beware of photo overload.

The convention started on Saturday morning.  
Can I just say that partying at Pete's until 3 am is not the best way to start off an all day convention, but thanks to large amounts of Starbucks I made it until 3 am the following morning!  Thank you, Starbucks!

First up was the wonderful and funny Christopher Heyerdahl.  He plays Marcus in New Moon and Breaking Dawn.  
He is also well known for other roles in movies and television series, like Supernatural.  
His bald head is due to a role he is playing right now.  He is just one of the nicest guys you will EVER meet!  After seeing him twice now, I'm a huge fan.

For each star, they hold about a 40 minute question and answer session.  You are allowed to submit as many questions as you would like.  Sometimes they are able to ask them all of the submitted questions and then the stars will mingle through the audience and allow people to ask questions from the floor.

Hillywood facilitates the Q&A session.  They're awesome!
Above is a pic of Hillywood's Edward and Bella, Jacob Jost and Hilly Hindi.  
Below is a pic of Hillywood's Jasper, Drew Lorentz.  He's fantastic.
I really loved this shot that I got of Jacob "Edward" and Hilly "Bella".

After Christopher, 
we got to see Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon.  
They are so much fun.  Bronson is full of energy.  
He is a Canadian and I love to hear him talk.  Different accents and dialects amuse me.


He is such a cutie and he said during the Q&A that when someone asks him what his favorite animal is, he answers "cougar"...and sometimes "pumas".  LOL.  LOVE HIM!  He's 23, so he's totally legal. 

Kiowa is more reserved and quiet, 
but still just as funny and cracks these "undercover" jokes...
like you have to really be paying attention to get it, but he's funny. 

FINALLY, it was time for PeterfreakinFacinelli!!

They were actually doing one of their auctions, where they auction off things from the convention...banners, pictures, other autographed pictures from previous conventions, etc.

Peter stuck his head in the door and yelled out "I bid $500" and the guy auctioning off the stuff yelled out "we just added a date with Peter Facinelli!" LOL.  The whole audience erupted in hoots and hollars.  It was great.

Here's a few of my favorite Peter pics from the weekend.





Most of the good pictures I got of Peter were from the dinner that night.
We had an Asian dinner buffet and Peter was the guest of honor.  He spent about 5-10 minutes at each table just chit chatting.  It was really nice to just have normal conversation with him.  I asked him about his schedule and when he'll be in Baton Rouge (w/ the Precious)...around December 4th in case you're wondering.  He said that they are filming a lot of the indoor shots from the Cullen house there.

Jennie and the kids are doing great.  I asked. 

Later that night, we had the Volturi Ball.  
Kiowa, Bronson, and Christopher came to mingle.  
It was a lot of fun seeing them out and about.  
They were having drinks and enjoying themselves.  
We tried not to go all fangirl on them, 
but I did snap this pic when Kiowa was looking at me.


We shut that party down.  

I think my cousin and I were two of the last to leave. 

It was fun!  Pocket Edward had a great time too.

He gave a little attitude when it was time to go.
I took him to the meadow...er...the lobby so he could collect his thoughts and cool down a bit.

Tons more PE pics where those came from!  I'll share soon!

Jodelle was our last star of the conference.  
She was so sweet and at times she was SO 16!  I just love her.  
I think it would be great if the Short Life of Bree Tanner was turned into it's own movie!

During the conference we also had autograph signings and photo ops, 
but we weren't allowed to have our cameras or phones in line.

I have so many pictures that I'm still shuffling through.  
So, I may post some more soon.  
I'll definitely put more of Pocket Edward's adventures up.  

Hope you girls are having a great week!♥

Winner!!

...and the winner of the Peter Facinelli autograph is...

Living with Edward!!  YAY!  Congratulations!!  


My little boy was the official name drawer, so that it would be completely fair.  He was so happy that he drew out a name he could read!  LOL.  He was like, "I know this one...L-W-E...what does that spell?...who's name is that?"  I told him it stands for Living With Edward and he said, in his innocent 6 year old voice, "she LIVES with Edward??" LOL.  He was pretty impressed.  Edward is beyond celebrity status in our house, as he should be in every house.


He was so into the name drawing, so he drew two more names.  Lucky for you girls, this momma is a sucker! 


Congratulations to 17ForeverLisa and Married2MyJacob!!  


I'm not sure what you girls will win, but I'm sure it'll be great!  Don't you just love surprises?!


Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway.  I wish I could give each of you an autograph or something.  If by chance Peter is giving away free autographs, everyone gets one! ;)


Have a fanfreakintastic weekend!

Men of Twilight - Review

Tonight at 11:59 is your last chance to enter in our giveaway for a personalized Peter Facinelli (aka Dr. Carlisle Cullen, Daddy C, Dr. Fang...whatever you call him) autograph.

So, as a last ditch effort, we're going to review PFach's Men of Twilight post from a while back. Just as a reminder that he is HOTT, sweet, talented, giving, and committed. He gives so much back to the fandom, as well as charities and goodwill efforts.

Without further ado...PFach.

Today, we would like to draw your attention to the 
Big Daddy...
Dr. Carlisle Cullen...
Daddy C...
the patriarch of the Cullen Clan...
the man we owe our eternal servitude for creating Edward...
aka Peter Facinelli!

I had the privilege of meeting PFach in person earlier this year at a Twilight Convention (and I'll be meeting again in THREE days!).  
He is a seriously funny, witty, and charming guy.  
Not to mention he's freakin' HOTT!  
That Jennie Garth is one lucky chic! 
I checked out his butt on more than one occasion.  
He had me at "hey".  
No joke. 
I was his on a plate from the first adorable grin.

Have you guys seen Nurse Jackie?  If not, you should.  Peter is so flippin' hysterical in his role of  Dr. Fitch Cooper (what a coincidence that he plays a doctor)!  
Nurse Jackie airs on Showtime.  Click HERE for the website.
And surprise, surprise.  
You can follow Peter on Twitter.  
He gives some pretty funny tweets.  
Find him at @peterfacinelli (click to go to his Twitter page).

Best things about PFach...

He genuinely LOVES the Twilight franchise 
and embraces the Twi-hards by attending countless public appearances and Twilight Conventions. 
Gotta love him for that!

He LOVES his wife.  
He joked around at Twi Con that he wasn't answering his phone unless it was Jennie.  
He's an iPhone junkie.
He's a family man and he LOVES his kiddos!
He does charity work!

Did I mention he's smokin' hott?
What more could we ask from one of our beloved men of Twilight?
Are you a PFach fan?

The Natives Are Restless

According to Female First, the Breaking Dawn set was vandalized yesterday.  Apparently, the local peeps aren't diggin' the fact that their island has been turned into a movie set.  So, they decided to set a port-a-potty on fire...
and protest.  Protest?  Really?

From a Twihard's POV, they're FREAKIN' CRAZY!  Hello, Brazilians, you have RPattz in your zip code (or whatever kind of postal codes they have down south)!!

You should embrace the Precious.
*take your cue from KStew*
I just can't get enough of this.  
How could you NOT love this?

Living in small town Oklahoma, I've never had the occasion arise where my town has been turned into a movie set and not just any movie set.  I don't think every movie set has the crazy fans, paparazzi, and media attention that the Twilight Saga has.

I think the revenue brought in would outweigh the insanity that is Twilight.

What are your thoughts?

Breaking Dawn Highlights


Holy vampires and humans, what do we NOT love thus far?!

Here are a list of the highlights...

*Robsten in love...both on and off screen.  
You can just tell that their feelings are totes legit.
*The ring.  It looks stunning.
*KStew/Bella's dress is oh-so-chic and "womanly"...sorta Audrey Hepburn-ish...she's even wearing heels!! 
*Rob for the win.  
He looks HOTT as usual!!  
No surprises here.
*The body doubles.  
They totally crack me up.  
I don't know why, 
but I find them quite humorous.
*Rob driving the boat...and even better is KStew's passenger seat driving!  I love it.  Double win.

I could watch them for hours.
Is that normal?

*The anticipation.  
I know sex scenes are coming soon!  
We all know how the book plays out, 
so there are no real surprises, 
but I just feel all *giddy* when I think about getting to see it on the big screen.

What are your highlights so far?
Do you love the set pics or hate them?
Go on and dish...
and then remember to go and comment on Friday's post to be entered to win a personalized PFach autographed picture!

Loves, Trixie & Tess
