My real-life BFFs and I are obsessing about Twilight. 3 of the 4 of us read the books. We sometimes insert Twilight phrases into our conversations.

Basically, we are 23-year-old (actually, I guess I'm the only one who's 23 - they're all 22) high-schoolers. And we're OK with it.

It was decided this past weekend that we need t-shirts to wear to Thursday night's premiere. But after perusing the $30 t-shirts at Hot Topic (I didn't go in, some of my friends did), we decided it was time to DIY.

And since I'm probably the craftiest of the group... off I went.

Goal: super-cheap t-shirts.

Answer: Haynes Men's V-Necks, 5 pack, under $10.

So we have decided that there will be 2 Team Edward and 2 Team Jacob t-shirts... not that any of us are really Team Jacob.... but we need the balance, plus it'll be a cute picture.

This is the Team Edward tee. We're using the crest on the right on the front of the tee and putting "Cullen" on the back like a baseball tee. I used permanent market on the collar to make it blue (classy, I know - but it works!).

This is the Team Jacob tee - with the wolf boys' tattoo, upside down. I didn't notice when I was taking the picture.

The question is - should I use iron-on transfers or should I just put the symbol underneath the tee and trace it on there myself - either with permanent marker or paint? Hmm... I can't decide. Transfers would definitely be faster!

The only downside to all this excitement on Thursday at midnight.... is that my dad is having surgery that day. It's a routine surgery and shouldn't be anything too big to worry about - but still.... I'm going to be at the hospital all day and then I have to bring him home and run out to the movie.

So I should post tomorrow and Thursday, but if I don't - just know that I'm busy busy busy...

So who else is excited about New Moon?! Anybody besides Megan and PinkSass? (Oh yes Megan, I did just insert you into the #TwilightPosse - hahahahahahaha!)

Any Twilight haters out there? I'm not really sure we have much in common but feel free to tell me why you're too cool for teenage vampires and werewolves... so I can laugh at you (kidding!).

Happy Tuesday!

I got into Twilight really late (a couple of months ago) and read the first 2 books really quickly but decided I needed a small break for 3 and 4. Then I got into True Blood, which I highly recommend for anyone. I didnt want to like Twilight at first cause vampires gross me out and I had the same issue with True Blood, but it is soooooooooooo good!!!!

I'm 25 & my sister is 22 and we are going to the midnight showing on Thursday :-) I wanted to make t-shirts too but I have no time. So we're going in comfy clothes since the movie starts at 12:45am which is way past this woman's bedtime.

The iron on transfers will save you a whole lot of time since you are going to be super busy!
