Edward or Jacob?

I should preface this post by saying that I have what I consider to be a healthy relationship to the Twilight novels. Translated: I am perfectly aware that they are cheesy, that they overuse the verb "smolder", and that Bella is annoying--but I love them anyway.

And so does Jill. Hence, the Twilight-themed birthday party. Highlights included werewolf cupcakes, blood beverages, and a huh-larious dramatic reading by Frank, Jared and Chris (sidenote: you don't know how truly bad the writing in these books is until you read one out loud).

Since the werewolf cupcakes looked a bit better than they tasted, I also made Georgetown Cupcake's chocolate ganache cupcakes. Heather, if you are reading this, I have to disagree with you. Those cupcakes are good, but Magnolia's are most definitely better.

I would have loved to hear the dramatic reading! Yes, they are cheesy books but fun to get caught up in. :)

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Thanks, Janelle!

Haha. I love people who sheepishly admit that, okay, they kind of like Twilight. People who preface their like with "I know it's not substantive or profound, but..." :)

Most of these people were English majors at BYU. Kid you not, I can name at least 5.
