Breaking Dawn, but not Breaking Water
On November 21, I had my first non-Shawn outing. That is right, I ventured out into the world with someone who is not my husband. Praise the Lawd! I am making friends! My darling coworker, Wil, set me up with his sister to see Breaking Dawn. Kristi is due one week before me (she is having a baby girl) so we chatted during the previews all about our respective pregnancies, her omg adorable three-year-old, and being happy that we could see this flick with another chick - the husbands put the kibosh on them ever attending.
Shawn set me out the door as if it was my first day of school. "Have fun with your new friend, honey."
We waddled in and popped down for the show. Neither one of us ran to the bathroom during the whole thing. This far along in our baby-building sitting for more than two hours without a restroom stop is almost unheard of.
I have to say that this movie surprised me in how much I liked it. It completely surpassed my admittedly low expectations. Edward finally was dressed good, his hair was normal, and he actually was able to act like he cared about Bella. The wedding was really pretty and that dress was beautiful! (side note: Alfred Angelo made a knockoff). It was the transformation that her already little body made as she was impregnated with a demon monster baby with a funky name that did it for me. The makeup and CGI was fantastic. Anytime the wolves made it on screen I couldn't help but giggle. They are always so cheesy.
Looking forward to next year with the second installment comes (though my expectations are still not high for that inevitable wierdfest - the whole imprinting thing puts me off a lot). Looking even more forward to making more friends! Success!
