Twilight - Final Trailer

Yesterday was the release day for Twilight. I had never seen it before but I had heard several people say how great the movie is. So, Jason and I decided to pre-order the movie. We never do that without seeing a movie first but decided to take a risk. The movie was FABULOUS! It's a movie about vampires but it's more of a love story than anything. I liked it so much that I have watched it twice already since last night. I am seriously thinking about watching it a third time. Each time I watch it I pick up on something during the movie, which is fun for me.
Another cool thing about the movie was Jason and I went to Washington state last September. We drove through the town of Forks and even stopped at the local grocery store and Ace Hardware for camping supplies. Another reference in the movie is La Push Beach. That was the first beach we visited on the trip and we actually went through the Indian Reservation they mention on the movie. Also, during the movie (and you can even see it on the trailer), the vampires attach at a warehouse. Jason and I got lost on our way to Forks and ended up driving through that actual warehouse, which is crazy since it's on the movie. We visited Port Angeles as well.

Anyway, if you have not seen the trailer check it out. I'm going to link it to my blog from U-Tube. So, you will see it shortly. I highly recommend renting it and giving it a try.

Nothing really new here......

I figured I'd better post something or someone could get upset with me. There is nothing new to report on the McKenna home front though. Normally I only post the cool things that we are doing however right now we're just doing home renovation. BORING!!!!!

For the last 3 weeks Jason has been reflooring our bedrooms and office. We're putting down the swiftlock laminate. We also ordered new carpet for our living room and hallway. Pretty soon we're going to have a brand new house, or at least it's going to feel like it. The floors look fabulous. I would attach pictures however we have furniture shoved in all the rooms waiting on the carpet to be installed. Once that's installed I will update my blog with pictures.

Other than that, nothing new.......BORING!!!!!

Our future plans include a trip to Washington DC. We're heading out the weekend after Good Friday with our friends Dori & Gerald. Right now we're planning on staying in Arlington. Our plans are to visit the Arlington Cemetary, White House, Reflection Lake, Vietnam Memorial, Smithsonian and other cool places.

We're trying to decide which month to go to the ADK's to get our high point for the year. Jason cannot travel anywhere until after May. I, of course, can go anywhere I want. HA!
