The Twilight DVD release. We started counting the days as soon as the date was announced. On March 20, we were finally able to bring Twilight home to watch
Kerry Sees & Reads Twilight For The First Time. Yeah, I was a latecomer to the whole Twilight deal. My hubby read the series and wanted to see the movie before it left the theater, so January 25, 2009, we showed up to a still half-full theater and saw the movie that would instantly change how I spent my free time. (And some of the not-so-free time)!
Rob Breaks The Internet. Otherwise known as the Least Productive Day Ever.
The MTV Movie Awards Show. For me, this was really exciting. This was the first time I watched anything 'live' with the cast or Twilight-related. Made me feel like a real fan, not just playing catch up with old youtube videos. Unfortunately, it meant I had to watch the MTV Movie Awards.
Various Wonderful Magazines. Including, but certainly not limited to US Weekly Sexy Stars of Twilight and the
Speaking of Magazines, What About....? GQ = Kerry falls in love with a 23 year old guy with dirty hair. Vanity Fair publishes some of the best pics of the cast, and then kills us dead with an amazing shoot with Rob. And then outtake after outtake after outtake after outtake. Oh, and of course let's not forget Taylor's Rolling Stone, or Kristen's Allure. Or any of the other 4.324.857 others.
Seeing Sam Bradley and The Men. Okay, so this is definitely a personal highlight, and not really Twilight related, directly. But, were it not for Twilight and Sam's co-writer status on the soundtrack's Never Think, I might never have found this fabulous artist. Meeting him, interviewing him and seeing him perform was definitely a highlight of my year. This is an experience that Kerry and I both got to have this year, but unfortunately, months and miles apart. Sam is so adorable! I had a great time seeing him in concert in Seattle, and was pleasantly surprised to find him attending a Marcus Foster concert in Nashville a few weeks later! Hi Sam!
Comic Con. It was the first chance to see the cast together since they wrapped filming. It was incredibly exciting and of course the panel was wonderful. Afterward, even more of the cast showed up afterward to introduce special screenings of Twilight.There was tons of fantastic coverage from this event.
Chris Weitz. This isn't a moment, more of a combination of moments, but definitely a highlight. When he was announced as the director of
Taylor hosts SNL. There were skeptics galore, but Taylor pulled it off with flying colors. He got the chance to demonstrate his comedic side and those awesome martial arts moves and physical tricks he's famous for. Awesome, awesome job Taylor.
New Moon Release. It's not that Amber forgot this one, I
The growth of the blog. Of course, this is a bigger deal to Kerry and I, but it's something we're really proud of and thankful for. We were able to expand to a blogging page on t5m, added the lovely Kerry, reached over 1300 twitter followers, purchased the eyesofamber.com domain name and most recently even became available for subscription on Kindle! It has not been without help from so many fellow bloggers and of course, our wonderful readers! You guys make all the Twi Moments so much sweeter! This is a definite highlight for me! Now I get to write about my
