I had the opportunity to decorate the 45 tables at our church for a fun women's event which featured Christmas treats, sing-a-long and speaker. The best part was the TEXAS theme!! We love our Lone Star State and a good old Texas style Christmas came together on Thursday night. When I agreed to do the work (with a great team) I wasn't working full time and had the time to devote to it. Because of being busy all the time it came down to the wire of gathering all I needed. I couldn't have done it without GREAT help. It was fun!
Our native-Texan speaker was stuck in traffic and an hour late because her agent switch her venues with another reporter and was on the other side of Dallas. She finally arrived and was quite delightful.
There is a precious woman at my church whom I want to be like when I grow up. ; ) She did this fabulous stage for us!!!
...and then it was FINALLY here---TWILIGHT.
We had a B-L-A-S-T hanging out at Starbucks after the Texas dinner, having a peppermint white chocolate mocha AT TEN O'CLOCK at night!! We headed to the theater an hour early. Got there to find millions, literally, of crazy teenagers giddy with excitement. We oldies were rolling our eyes until a The Man in the Yellow Shirt came over and said, "I have something for you." Oh goody!!! Since the THREE screens were going to be full of Edward-lovin' teens they opened up a fourth screen JUST for oldies!! LOL! We adults guarded our doors and no teenies were aloud! It was glorious!!
The movie was nowhere near as fun or alluring as the book, but it was still good. The whole experience is what was fun. I got into bed at 3:00AM and then got up at six for work. I was actually still wired and did fine until about 5:00PM yesterday.
Thanks girlies---I had a wonderful time!!!
It's fun to be young...at heart. ; )
