So...Saturday was day 3...still chaotic, everything started late, lines too long, disorganized, clueless (often rude) staff...
Wow...okay sounds like our trip sucked, right? It so did not !!!! We had a blast. We enjoyed ourselves so much. Yes, the event should have been better organized and we were somewhat disappointed in that...but we definitely don't regret our little getaway! We laughed and relaxed and did whatever we wanted for 4 days. No work...No responsibilities...and 2500 other women who are as obsessed as we are! AWESOME!!
Okay...back to our day...the highlight of Saturday was definitely the Q&A session with the cast. Wish we were closer...wish it lasted longer...wish they'd had better questions...BUT...great fun. It was so neat to see the actors and hear their un-edited responses. Peter Facinelli is hilarious. I had always heard that, but it is so true. Everyone was great, but the obvious comraderie (especially between he and Jackson) was beautiful to behold. Peter tries to make everyone feel comfortable and easily fills any awkward silences. Jackson is charming. Kellan Lutz is like a cute kid that know you'll forgive anything he does. Billy Burke is funny by being the "laid back" dude. Alex Meraz looked completely overwhelmed by the "crowd of crazies". Christian Serratos was relatively quiet. But wow...how exciting to actually see the people you watched dozens (okay, maybe hundreds...) of times on screen. They were very gracious. Wow....look MOM! your lessons in good manners stuck....I said "gracious"!
Saturday evening was the Volturi Ball. The final "formal" event. We had fun dressing up and taking our pictures in our room with our Edward cutout. I'm sure the other guests in the hotel were a little freaked out by all the strange costumed women heading over to the ballroom! We saw a little bit of everything! Masks, capes, formals....obviously...but also giant wings, pirates, and outfits that would make most people blush! We saw several people with REAL Twilight tattoos! Wow...that is dedicated! We mingled...took lots of pictures...but left pretty early. The music and food were good, but again...poor planning...not nearly enough table or chairs. HUNDREDS of people were standing in every available space. Some had to stand outside the ballroom it was so crowded!
So our big night out ended with out party (3 adults / 3 teenagers!) going back to our room, ordering pizza, and giggling and talking (slumber party style) until 3 am...mostly about Twilight of course!!! As I said earlier...we had fun!
