Twilight Take Two

by Meghann on December 10, 2008

It was definitely different seeing Twilight for the second time tonight. It was still good, but after reading the book I was able to view it with a more critical eye. Its funny how many refrences I noticed from Midnight Sun (Yes, I went ahead and read the unpublished draft. I had a lot of time on my hands waiting for the second book. :) )

I’m extra interested now to see how they adapt New Moon for the big screen. The Director has already stated she will not be returning for the sequel, should be interesting to see the books through another pair of eyes.

Before the movie Caitlin and I did have success finding the third book at Target before the movie. There weren’t many there, but we were able to grab a book a piece.

Since food choices are always limited at movie theaters, I went ahead and packed a dinner to sneak in ahead of time.

I ended up not eating the bag of popcorn, but did enjoy the Wrap, Pear & Blondie.

The wrap was basically my lunch in wrap form

Inside the multigrain Flat Out Wrap held:

  • Sabra Hummus
  • Spinach
  • Alfalfa Sprouts
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomato
  • Green Beans
  • Feta Cheese

I brought some of VeggieGirl’s Pistachio-Pear-Ginger Blondies to share and she was equally as impressed as I was with the overall mositness of the blondie and its wonderful blend of flavors.

Going to the movies doesn’t always have to mean unhealthy junk, its just a matter of sneaking in the good stuff. :)

This afternoon I snacked on a Peanut Butter Kashi Granola Bar at work.

Alright, its officially past my bed time and the New Moon book is screaming at me to read another chapter before I pass out. Good Night!

I’m staying hopeful that a change in director will not be detrimental to the movies, I NEED to see them make all four!

I plan on reading Midnight Sun eventually too, I bet the movie was especially interesting having that perspective.

Great “sneak-in” dinner, way to stay prepared!

Hi Meghann,
Good for you sneaking in some healthy food! Aside from the fact that the candy and popcorn are not the best choices, it also costs an arm & a leg!! Your dinner looks so tasty ;-)

I’m glad you found the third book! Enjoy reading New Moon tonight!

I love sneaking in stuff to movies, it is seriously out of control expensive to buy anything! I’m wondering about your canned drink? I’ve seen it around- is it soda or like tonic water?

I read that about the director. It will definitely be interesting to see what the new guy/girl has in store! I’m glad you enjoyed the movie this time around :) I’m glad you ladies found the third book, too!

Haha, I love sneaking food into movies! You picked some awesome stuff to sneak in, too!

Yay for Twilight!

That is so smart of you to bring your own snacks in! The food at the movies is always expensive and unhealthy.

I’ve been on a wrap kick lately. For some reason I like them way better than bread. Yours looks good!

I love your movie picnic! I ALWAYS pack stuff too! It’s cheaper and healthier – my mom even packed me strawberries once! Haha, you definately wont find that at the snack counter. And now anyone that goes with me loves sticking their stuff in my large purse! I’m still waiting on the day for food-sniffing dogs to be guarding the movie theater entrance ;)
