10 Reasons Why Eclipse is My Favorite
1. It was my favorite book.
2. There's a love triangle 
3. Jacob has his shirt off a lot.
4. Edward broods and smiles a lot.
5. Surprisingly, Bella does not blink and bite her lip a lot.
6. Most of the Cullens have more lines.
7. The tent scene was spot on.
8. The writing is better.
9. The acting is better.
10. The proposal scene made me teary.

PS - This post took a long time to put together on my phone.

If it looks wonky, I don't care.

PPS - Our blue shirts came from this lovely blogger.

Looks like you girls had fun.

tara said...

y'all are cute! and the proposal scene was AMAZING!!!

valentine said...

i love your shirts, even though they didn't mention it in the movie (lame) the newtons outfitters is kinda big part in the book.

i agree with all ten!

Gosfam said...

Love girl's nights!! The shirts are great.

Christina said...

Love the shirts! I was expecting Team Jacob or Team Edward. You impress me.

I'm finally going to see it tomorrow night and I'm very excited to know that Bella doesn't blink as much!

Kristina P. said...

It wasn't as bad as I expected. Definitely better than the first two.

Macey said...

You are all awesome. :)
Seriously, I thought you were like a neanderthal or something, then you said you were only 5'5" and Terri is like 5'3" or some crazy crap...so you're both neanderthals! <--- that's coming from a freakin' midget though.

Macey said...

And I wanted to hump Jacob's leg.
That is all.

Nikosmommy said...

Dying to see it!!! Just finished reading "The short second life of Bree Tanner"...makes me want to see eclipse sooo badly!! Unfortunately husband is not interested and my two BFF's saw it together while they were out of town. (without me... sigh)

Olivia Carter said...

Amen to everything you said. And double amen to the proposal scene making me teary.

Erin said...

Oh I so loved Eclipse...I've seen it twice already! I agree with your top ten! I do not know how they are going to top this in the next two movies!

Mrs. Match said...

I agree! I was so impressed with how all of the actors have gotten comfortable with their characters. Even Kristen managed to minimize her awkwardness! The tent scene was amazing. This was my fav book and I was not disapointed by the movie. Now I'm pumped for Breaking Dawn!!

Julie Leah said...

Misty!! I thought about you Sunday night when I saw it!! I LOVED IT!! I must go back and see it like 5 more times! The tent scene WAS spot on. And the proposal made me teary too! I love vampire love!!


Alicia W. said...

Your list nailed it! Best movie yet and now I'm even more obsessed with waiting on the 1st part of book 4 to come out. :)

Salt said...

LOVE the shirts! So creative!
And I agree with you on all that you said. Eclipse is so much my favorite book too. And Jasper having more lines = happy Salt.

MommaKiss said...

they're not short, they're vertically challenged.

great shirts!!!

Mom in High Heels said...

JEALOUS! I hasn' even made it to our theaters yet. Not until next week. Stupid Army Europe theaters! Don't they know I NEED to see this movie? I can't wait to see a SMILING Edward. They make him kind of a dork in the movies. Boo! Your shirts are awesome. I'm insanely jealous of those too.

Shelley said...

I'm right there with ya about loving Eclipse! It's definitely the best yet!

TLF said...

You blogged, You blogged!!

Mrs. M said...

I haven't seen it yet, but every time I see pictures and previews I am really annoyed by the wig Kristin Stewart is wearing....does it look very wig-like during the whole movie??

LOVED Eclipse! You're right on about Bella and her dumb lip biting, she didn't bug me as bad in this movie. However, I did have to look at Jasper, which always creeps me out. Rosalie was amazingly beautiful and God love Jacob for saying, "I'm hotter than you". Die.

Not Everyones Mama said...

Eclipse was my favorite too, for all those reasons, plus hair and make up for the other Cullens was so much better!

I've got the same problem with my friends. I'm 5'4" and I tower over my mom, my SIL, my sister, and 2 of my best friends. Kind of nice being the tallest in the crowd every once in awhile. LOL

Ms. Salti said...

Fun post! How many times have you seen the movie now? My count is only at 2... I want to go again very soon, though! I love your shirts!

Nikki said...

It was my favorite movie too!! I loved it and am totally wanting to go see it again! I'm actually watching Twilight as I write this because the obsession has started over again now!! Dammit!!!

Trixie and Tess said...

I concur with all of your 10 Reasons!

Ca-UTE pics of you and your twi-peeps! I would have just convinced people that I was tall. No need to out yourself. LOVE your Olympic Wolf shirts. I'm sensing a lot of Team Jacobness going on...not one person in your posse to represent Edward? WHUT???


Heligirl said...

Yes x10! I was totally blown away by this movie. Amazing what the money is doing for the acting and directing. Totally loved getting to see Jasper develop, but I wish they'd written Rosalie to be more like in the book - you forgave her and saw her become nice, where in the movie she still seemed rather spiteful and hard to like.

You guys look great. I had to sneak away solo to go, which was just fine. Amazing how you're so self conscious when your single about being alone in the theater. As a mom getting me time, I covet it!

I love the shirts!

I decided I'm definitely going to need to get a new shirt for the next movie. I love my Buffy shirt, but it's time for something different.
