Work has me stressed but nothing new with the reasons. Just need to put the rhino hide on and focus on what matters to me the most. My family, my friends and the plans I have for this year. Twilight Girls Weekend and the cruise. It's what is keeping me from going totally mad. As long as I keep myself busy I won't think about how thoroughly disgusted I am at certain people.
I do need something to fill up the fall and from what I've heard "Breaking Dawn" is scheduled to start filming in October. One of my dear cruise friends wants to come out here and "set stalk" so who am I to say no? :) Not sure where they are filming yet. Really hoping they bring it back to the states and film in St. Helens again. Would be perfect for a weekend drive. I know I'm dreaming and possibly living in a fantasy but filming begins after the cruise and since we are going to be partying with Mike and Alex they will remember us and bring us on the set. You never know. It could happen!!! It's a long shot but I'll hold onto that fantasy for awhile. LOL

I went to Seattle yesterday to meet Linda and Bobbi. They are organizing the Twilight Cruise I'm going on in August. Have I mentioned I'm going on a Twilight themed cruise? ;) I am. You should check it out:
Met up with Linda and Bobbi in the lobby of the Westin and from there it was a great time. Granted they were having a meeting to get some things worked out for the pre-cruise portion of the trip but it was interesting to see the inner workings. After all of that was said and done we sat down for drinks and appetizers. I have found MY drink while we are at the Westin. I love Cosmo's but I can say that hands down The Westin in Seattle makes the best ones by far. I'm sure that by the end of the 3 days the bartenders will know to make it as soon as they see me. YUMMO!!!
Sonya (sales manager at the Westin), Linda, Bobbi and me
We went to see a Mariners game last night and I was honestly thinking we would be sitting in an okay section. Nope. We were sitting in the Terrace Club seats. NICE!!! Found out a little more about the Vampire Night festivities and got a free Mariners baseball cap. :) A really nice one too. Not that I'm much of a cap person but I'll wear it for Vampire Night.
I'm so glad I signed up for the Twilight Cruise. I've met some of my best friends through this trip and we haven't even gone on the cruise yet. Lifetime friendships have been formed and when I told Linda that it looked like she teared up a bit. I don't think she expected this little turn of events but her idea of a Twilight fans cruise was quite possibly one of the best things she could have ever done. :)

This was hilarious...
And my favorite song....aside from "I'm feelin' good" for obvious reasons. ;) This was the 2nd to last song and he still had energy after a 2 hour show. Amazing entertainer and someone I would be more than happy to spend as much money as possible to see again. I won't ever go see him without being in the 3rd row or closer. :)

From there I did something I've never done. I got a facial!!! Great little spa in Belltown. If you are in or around Seattle go check out Spa Noir. Found the most amazing skin products ever!!! Will most definitely be purchasing them.
I was surprised at where I was staying. He reserved a king room at The Edgewater for me. Talk about a nice place!!! Another highly recommended place to go.
Dinner was at a place I had never heard of. He took me to Palisade. He had told them it was my birthday so when we got there we had rose petals scattered on the table. Dinner was fabulous and the view, even though it was cloudy, was wonderful. Don't get me started on the pomegranate cosmo. Yummy!!!
Once dinner was over it was time to head to Key Arena for the very reason I went to Seattle. Michael Buble. I cannot even begin to say how fabulously fabulous the concert was. His opening act was "Naturally 7". They have no instruments other than their voices. Check them out...
I was in awe while watching them. Oh...I was in the 3rd row watching them. ;) Yes...I would be jealous too. LOL
After a brief intermission, this man came on stage...
I can safely say that any time he is in concert within driving distance I will be going. Holy crow that man can put on a show. He was "insert a lot of superlatives here". While he was singing the above song he was on the side of the stage where we were sitting. He was singing and looked right at me. Well...I thought he was but just to be sure I smiled really big and guess what? He smiled right back!!! Yes...I became a puddle at that moment. Michael Buble' smiled at me! *sigh* I love Michael Buble. Seriously though...the concert was fabulous and definitely worth seeing again.
Yesterday was spent walking around Pike Place Market and the waterfront. It was really too cold to enjoy much. I did get my photo taken with the Easter clam outside of Ivar's though. ;)
A great birthday and I truly hope that all of my birthdays from here on out are just as much fun.
