I know what you're thinking - "Twilight Convention??? REALLY???" and yes, I admit, I am one of those Twilight people. I am the TwiHard that I used to roll my eyes at. My co-worker tried and tried to get me to read the books and I finally caved. I literally told her, "Give me the book. If I hate the first chapter, I'm not going any further."
I was hooked after the first page.
If you have not read the books, I highly recommend them. They aren't the gore-filled vampire story that I expected. It's a love story with just the right amount of action and suspense.
Anyway - so this Saturday we trekked down to L.A. to the Hyatt Regency for the Breaking Dawn Convention. My co-worker has a connection, and we were given free VIP passes - how could we say no to that?!
The convention was packed, of course. Everyone went absolutely berserk when RPatz, KStew and Taylor Lautner went out on stage. Not gonna lie, I screamed like a little girl, too. Here are some pics - enjoy!

Kailee's First Birthday
On November 6, 2010, my bestie Tara gave birth to her sweet little girl, Kailee. Yesterday was Kailee's first birthday, complete with a very pink party! All of the munchkins had a great time and there were surprisingly few meltdowns considering we partied well past nap time. And at the end of the day, a beautiful rainbow appeared just for the birthday girl.
Happy First Birthday, Kailee!
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!

Birthday hug from Mommy!
