Hi friends!  Sorry to leave you hanging, but I didn’t get back from New Moon until midnight, and now it’s 5:45 AM, and I’m getting ready to leave for Miami.  We have our last home game to attend and tailgate at.  :( 


New Moon was a-maz-ing.  I don’t care what the critics say, it was SO good.  And that’s coming from a fan of the books who was disappointed in the first movie.  If you love the books, you will LOVE New Moon.


I will respond to all previous e-mails and comments when we get back this afternoon!  Have a great Saturday!  🙂

    I took my daughter to New Moon and she said too that is was so much better than the first movie. She has read all of the books (several times) and loved it. She wants to go back today and see it again.

    Enjoy the game.

  • Kristie Lynn November 21, 2009, 7:45 am

    Have fun tailgating… something tells me someone might be crashing HARD tonight 😉

  • Stacey November 21, 2009, 7:46 am

    Have fun! And I’m glad you liked the movie 😀 I think I might avoid all the hub-bub and wait for it to come out on DVD!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite November 21, 2009, 7:47 am

    looks like fun! Have a great time!

  • Karla November 21, 2009, 8:02 am

    New Moon was great! I saw it last night too!
    I thought the first 5 minutes were REALLY REALLY bad but it got much better after that.
    Plus I may or may not have been converted to Team Jacob…

  • Ali November 21, 2009, 8:24 am

    My thoughts exactly on the movies…the first was awkward, studdery, and the acting sucked. New moon was better, ten fold! Thank god Kristen worked on some things (though I feel she could have shown a little more emotion when Edward leaves- like cry?!)
    In any case, I am officially Team Jacob for the movies (nice bod!) and team edward for the books! Hope you have fun today!

  • Anne P November 21, 2009, 8:28 am

    OMG New Moon was soooo good. WAY better than Twilight. And Jake = SO HOT!!!!! Everyone in the theater started cheering when he took his shirt off. Hilarious!

  • Sammi November 21, 2009, 8:48 am

    I hope you’re having fun out there!
    I want to see the movie soooooo bad! We were going to go last night but they were all sold out. Glad we noticed that before we stood in the horrible LONG line!
    Thankfully I saw the first movie before I read the books so I still loved the first movie! It probably would have been a little disappointing if I read the book and then saw the movie (they changed so much! grrrr)

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) November 21, 2009, 9:16 am

    Can’t wait to hear the full recap on the movie! I looooved the books and was dissapointed in the movie too. Especially the first time I saw it. I think I said this in your last post though…lol
    Either way, have fun today lady!! 🙂

  • Babycakes November 21, 2009, 9:18 am

    LOVED the movie!!! And although I said it before, it’s worth saying again – I’m team Edward all the way but I love Jacob and Taylor Lautner is mouth-watering!

  • Jenna November 21, 2009, 9:32 am

    glad you liked new moon! have fun at the game 🙂

  • megan November 21, 2009, 9:37 am

    Yay! I can’t wait to see New Moon. I’m so glad you thought it was so much better than the first one. Can’t wait!!

  • katie November 21, 2009, 9:59 am

    have fun!! we are going to the VA/Clemson game today..and your tailgate sounds WAY better than what ours will be..haha

  • Evan Thomas November 21, 2009, 10:21 am

    I never care for what critics say about the movies; in the end, they’re one person with one opinion and it’s not always the same as mine

  • Nicole, MS, RD, LD November 21, 2009, 10:29 am

    I am SOOOOO glad I found your blog, I love it! Can’t wait to read more. I loved the vegan/vegetarian post.

    You and husband are a cute couple! Have a good weekend and enjoy that tailgate menu!

    • caitlin November 21, 2009, 7:00 pm

      aww thanks 🙂

  • Lisa November 21, 2009, 10:42 am

    I think you should win the prize for the healthiest, most inventive tailgating menus! I love them!
    Last year this weekend I was tailgating in Happy Valley where the wind chill was 13′ and it was snowing all day!! BUT, it’s college football and that’s what you do!!

    Have a great time!

  • Emily November 21, 2009, 10:50 am

    I tried to stay away from the Twilight world by not reading the books or seeing the 1st movie. Well I was drug to the opening of New Moon (at midnight no less) and I am now hooked!! The movie was great and I am even considering my self Team Jacob now. I want to catch up on everything else — would it be better to see the oher movie first or just read the books?

  • Tonyne November 21, 2009, 10:58 am

    I came here this morning hoping you would have commented on New Moon!! I loved it! I was also disappointed in Twilight, but New Moon stuck to the book so much better and the colors were amazing! Edward looked even dreamier and Jacob, makes me want to do naughty things that would put me in jail because he’s under age. haha 🙂 I loved it! Have fun at the tailgate!

  • Vicki November 21, 2009, 11:54 am

    Have fun at the tailgate!

    I saw it last night, too. It was so much better than the first one. I really enjoyed it!

  • bec November 21, 2009, 12:22 pm

    I cant wait to see new moon today! have a great time at the game 🙂

  • Tania @ Moment Anew November 21, 2009, 1:40 pm

    The movie totally swayed me over to “team Jacob”. Taylor Lautner can pretty much act circles around Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson. Enjoy your tailgate! 🙂

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) November 21, 2009, 2:44 pm

    I am gladded you loved the movie!! I think they did a great job with the first film, and I look forward to seeing this next one!

  • Adi (oatonomy.com) November 21, 2009, 5:00 pm

    Love how orange and cheery you both look! 🙂
