Twilight DVD Release Party!!! (sorry it's long)

Where do I even start with this post!! It was such a crazy fun night!! I was always planning on going to buy the movie at midnight but when we heard that a star from the movie was going to be at the Riverton Walmart of course I had to go! So my wonderful husband stayed home all night with the boys while me and my sisters left around 8 to head up to the Walmart! We were meeting up with my friends from high school Leslie and Melanee! As we pulled into the parking lot it wasn't anymore crowded than any other Walmart so we were thinking maybe not as many people knew about it as we thought! WOW were we wrong! We walked around and looked at the set up and the stuff for sale at midnight and saw a line forming so we followed it thinking that is where we needed to be! I wrapped around the whole back of the store! So Megan and I left Carlie and Courtney in line to go see what was happening. Megan ended up standing in the "for Walmart manager's friends and family section only" and told them she new him so they let her stay! I ended up in the mosh pit where Leslie and Melanee and Amber later joined me! After what seemed like forever she came in through the doors, Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria)! Everyone screamed and was really excited! Megan got a front row view and shook her hand and was later interviewed by one of the news stations!! (Lucky) Well she stayed there and I left to find my other sisters and got some of the free food they were giving out! After awhile we decided to get out of line because we were too far back anyway. So we got in line to buy the DVD when Megan calls and tells us she got her DVD signed and for us to come over so she could sneak us in by her! Leslie and Melanee had already got in with Megan and after countless Walmart employees telling us to turn around we can't go this way, we finally made it through and sat watching Rachelle sign everyone's stuff! She is so pretty and nice! She stayed until almost 2 in the morning to make sure everyone that was in line got signed!! So when we saw the end of the line coming we hurried and ran in so we could get one last thing signed too! That is what the video is of her talking to us as we walk by with our books! It was sooooo much fun and crazy! I love being around my fellow Twilight obessesed people! My husband and most other people I know just don't understand! And since we were about the last twenty people there she shook our hands as she was leaving!! So at 2 am we started our drive home, laughing and talking about our fun night! It was all worth it, even though we would really have loved to see Rob or Taylor, we were glad we had Rachelle who was so sweet and nice to all of her fans!! Now I will have to wait until November for my next midnight premiere experience!!!

Waiting for Rachelle in the mosh pit!
As she walked into the store!
These pictures are of people on both sides of me while in line to buy the DVD! This is not including the line that wraps around the back of the store!
This is the view from where Megan was sitting! We stood here the rest of the night and just watched and got people in line to have her sign our stuff!
Our whole group finally together!

With all of our autographed stuff! Please excuse the stupid things I say in the vidoe! I was a little star struck!

OH. MY. GOSH. You are insane, and I love it. You couldn't have paid me enough money to go and do that. But I'm very happy that you got your special DVD and got to meet Victoria, even if she is a beast in the books.

Yep... I still need to read the book and see the movie. I can't believe you went to the Riverton store to see the star and get stuff signed... I guess I just can't imagine going anywhere at midnight these days.... I need a little bit of you to rub off on me I guess.

Holy crap I am SO JEALOUS!! How did you find out she was going to be there?!? And why was she in Riverton of all places? That's awesome! I'm so glad you got to go, what an awesome (and crazy?) experience! :)
