Well if you haven’t been living under a rock then you know that when I refer to Twilight I’m not talking about a time of day, but about the madness that Stephenie Meyers produced with her Twilight Saga.
I’m normally one that likes to follow the beat of my own drummer. I don’t like following mindlessly and just do something because everyone else is doing it. For the longest time I was able to resist and never gave much thought to the book. A story about a vampire and human that was written by a Mormon mom that just woke up one morning and started to write.
Hmm I wasn’t interested. That was until it invaded my family. My sister was given a copy for her birthday and since I’m an avid reader I asked her to pass it along so that I could merely check it out. Well I was hooked! I couldn’t read them fast enough. I made sure I had all 4 in time for the movie, because I just had to know what happened to Edward and Bella.
Me and my sister went to go see it opening night and yes I was probably one of the oldest ladies there other than parents accompanying their kids that were too young to see it on their own, but I didn’t care.
Most people had mixed reviews about the movie. The thought it was horrible compared to the book, but I was in heaven.
Edward Cullen's equals yummy!

The DVD was released last weekend and I was able to get a copy of it until this morning. Don’t worry I made sure to get the Blu-Ray copy so I can enjoy Edward at his best.
So while I settle in this afternoon and enjoy my new flick I thought I would leave you all with some eye candy of your own.
Enter the Cullen’s home in Forks, Washington:
The house they used for the movie was built for the Hoke’s family and goes by the name Hoke House. It was built by Skylab Architecture that specializes in modern homes with a twist. They like to mix it up with introducing natural elements and fusing the past and future in their designs. I perfect fit for our modern vampire family that’s just trying to fit in.

So now you know what I'll be doing during my dreary rain-filled afternoon. What are you all up to? Anyone else already have their copy of Twilight?
