Yep, saw it opening weekend. Not that I needed to, it just worked out that way. I was a bit hesitant to see it actually, with Argo & Lincoln in theaters I thought perhaps we should spend our "one-movie-a-year" on one of those. My husband and I are not Twihards by any means, but we read the books and have seen the past three films, so we thought we'd finish it off right. 

I remember on a whim, we went to opening night of Eclipse and said we would never do that again. We were surrounded by a full theater of teenagers who enjoyed commenting out loud about Jacob and Edward's appearance. Oh dear!
So! Since I didn't really care for Part One (perhaps a bit too much Edward & Bella - if you know what I mean) I didn't really know what to expect from Part Two. But I loved it! I enjoyed Bella the best in this film compared to all the others. (No more sulking around the forest crying about Edward) 

I also was caught off guard by the ending of the film (which I won't go into detail about). But it was a good one, it kept me on my toes and I actually felt like I was able to share in some of the emotions. And of course at the very end, when the Christina Perri song kicks in, the softy in ME kicks in and I start to lose it. But don't worry I held it together.

This is how we worked out going to a movie BTW - since we don't live by a lot of family and haven't started getting a sitter OTHER than family, my sister and I swapped kids back to back. After church our family went to her house and watched her two girls while they went to a movie, then when they got back Tim and I went while they were on kid duty. 
Mini-matinee dates! It's so nice to get a little time just one on one with the hubs. Driving back from the theater for those few minutes in the car was so quiet! So weird remembering how it used to be when it was just the TWO of us!
Oh! and I topped it off by getting my first Starbucks Peppermint Mocha of the season! mmmMMM!
Are any of you "post-teenagers" into this series? Or perhaps a different series that you KNOW is a big teenie bopper film?

That sounds like such a fun date, especially the Starbucks! I'm with you on this one - read the books and saw the other movies with a former coworker. Not a Twihard, but need to finish it off. :)
