Yes, We Are Nerds...

....but we have fun.

We had a little New Moon party this week. I am not as big a fan as this party makes me seem, but I do like to watch the movies and I loved reading the books.
I wanted a fancy dinner, complete with candle light. And I know the too short table cloth is tacky, but what can you do?
We had a good turn out and a delicious meal which consisted of, bruscetta with tomatoes and goat cheese, bread and oil/vinegar (which we happened to have the BEST balsamic vinegar ever made), stuffed mushrooms, asparagus, delicious green salad, manicotti, sparkling cider, garlic bread, and, to top it off, lemon gelato. It was all sooo good, I could have eaten nonstop for a few hours.

Alyssa and I were the only ones that 'dressed up' for the occasion. And to answer the question on my shirt, I have totally switched teams since the movies came out. Jacob Black all the way!!!


Movie time. It is so much funner watching this movie without guys and their commenting. I like the woo woos from the girls better. Gotta love watching a little Jacob.
It was a great night and we had so much fun! Can't wait for the next party in JUNE!
And the picture are courtesy of Kristen, who is not in ANY of them since she was the picture taker. I am sorry Kris! I should have gotten one with you in it!

I haven't seen the movie yet, but after seeing this I want to (especially if it comes with such a great party)!
Love the new theater room...I can't even remember what it used to look like. The beadboard is so nice. I haven't seen that kind before. Where did you get it?

I hope your still throwing parties when I move back. Looks like fun, I still haven't read all the books.

Haha, It's ok that I'm not in the pics...I'm not feeling all that cute these days. We'll take more pics at the next party when I'm not quite so HUGE and preggo. It was such a fun party. Thanks for all you did to make it such a great night!

Looks like fun! I just saw the movie myself and I agree with watching a little Jacob . . . B

Not nerds. How fun are you to plan a party like that? Way more fun than me, but that's nothing new. We loved playing with your munchkins. We keep laughing at all the funny things they did on Friday. And it was way fun to stick around and chat. Sorry we stayed so late. Did you hate by Saturday morning? Sorry.

New Moon was just the vehicle (excuse) for you girls to have a fantastic time. That menu sounds spectacular. YUM! So, did Trent take the kids somewhere or what?
