Words can’t really do last Friday night justice. It was a huge party, hundreds of fans, tons of fun … superlatives all around! We’ve got loads of pictures; if you were there, check ’em out — you might be in one!
My very amateur slideshow will have to tide you over for now, since WordPress is very stubborn about these things (oh WordPress, when will you make my life easy and integrate Picasa?!), but you MUST go see this one that Geoff from the Deseret News put together, complete with audio. I don’t think anyone could have captured the night better than he did.
It was a very long day — I was up for Channel 2 news at 5 a.m., then in the store all day prepping, then here at the PARTY till 12:30 a.m. How did I spend Saturday recovering? Why, reading the book, of course! I won’t give anything away, but talk about happily ever after! Stephenie is definitely a “happy ending” kind of writer. Having read all of them, I have to say that Breaking Dawn might just be my favorite.

The entries will officially be on display starting tomorrow, Tuesday July 22nd, but if you’ve been by the store then you’ve already seen our two 3D entries: a full-size
wedding dress and Barbie Bella (note to Matel: you saw it here first!).
I’ll be posting more pictures of the entries starting tomorrow, and they’ll all be on display until the PAR-TAY (!!!!) on Friday, August 1st.
Also, yours truly will be on Channel 2 (KUTV) on Friday at 5 p.m. talking about how awesome the books are and how cool our party will be. Unless they decide to edit me out, which is totally fine by me; I’m even considering not watching it, since there is probably nothing more heinously embarrassing than making a fool of yourself on TV. Unless it’s on YouTube.
