Total Eclipse of My Heart

So, the BG girls have been anticipating the release of Stephanie Meyer's third installment of her Twilight Saga, Eclipse.

Yes, we know....we're moms, we're too old to be reading teenage books, much less reading about vampires and werewolves. However if you've read any of the books for yourself, you ABSOLUTELY understand why we are admittedly, dorky, TWIHARDS!!

Last year we stood in line for hours, with all the teeny boppers and the other moms, to watch Twilight and the New Moon premiere at midnight. Needless to say, when I watched New Moon for the second time I realized I had actually fallen asleep for nearly 10 minutes and had missed an entire scene of the movie! This time we agreed that catching the first showing the next morning would be our best bet. So today was an official BG work day...spent at the theater, with friends, an ice blended mocha from The Bean and Edward!

I have to say that Eclipse is my favorite book of the Twilight saga. Perhaps it's because it reminds me of that feeling I had when I first fell in love with my beloved- the butterflies in my belly, the pitter patter of my heart when I was with him, the anticipation of seeing him...or perhaps it's simply because Bella and Edward are finally together and make out like the hormone-charged teenagers they are! Regardless, the movie didn't disappoint and certainly lived up to my expectations!!!

My fellow Twihard sidekicks and I went to lunch afterwards and thoroughly discussed the differences between the book and the movie and what we thought should have been included. And of course, anticipated how long we would have to wait before we are able to get our next Twilight fix!!

When we returned to the studio and began to work, I couldn't stop replaying the movie in my head and feeling like I was going through Eclipse withdrawals!! I couldn't stop pondering on how, exactly, Breaking Dawn will be made into two separate movies. Where will it begin? Where will the second half begin? How will they bring this book to fruition with all the special effects needed?
Then to the good stuff....the wedding!
(Have you checked out Bella's engagement ring?!)

What will Bella's wedding dress look like? More importantly, what will Edward and Bella's wedding invitations look like??!! Who will design them??!! What color palette will they chose to capture Bella's laid back style? Will it be traditional but chic? Will it be modern and funky?

SO many questions! SO much to ponder on! SO long to wait!! Do you think Stephanie Meyers would mind if we submitted a couple of designs for Breaking Dawn and the wedding scene????

Check out our suggestions....
Green, like the forest of Forks, Washington,
laid back and simple like Bella Swan
Capturing the simplicity of nature and
keeping in line with the organic vibe of Bella and Edward

A more muted option for their August wedding

We leave you with our favorite quote from Eclipse...

"I was that boy who would have gotten down on one knee and endeavored to secure your hand. I would have wanted you for eternity, even when the word didn't have quite the same connotations."
