For the Boys

I'm an Edward fan and always have been. Adam has never read the books but he is well aware of who he is and has even made a joke about him being his competition. I love Edward and have even told Adam that I feel sorry for myself that he doesn't love me like Edward loves Bella (I know I'm a dork, but I'm getting to that). Anyway yesterday I overheard a group of women who were having a conversation about how incredible he is blah blah and the thought occurred to me that I am a little crazy. Can you imagine what a fit I would throw if he "fantasized" about .... Bella. If I were ever compared to how great another woman was or even a female figure in a book, Adam would be in a lot of trouble. I guess it's been a bit of a double standard

Ha ha, I am totally laughing. I totally agree about the double standard. It seems like we might tend to do things like that sometimes. Although I can't quite emphasis with your adoration for Edward because I have never read the books.

I am glad to hear others are obsessed with these books and in particular Edward. I also, get upset that Brian doesn't look at me like Mr. Darcy does to Elizabeth. But hey, that is the romantic in us and at least you recognize the double standard.

Gretch is this a confesion to lessen the wrath of Adam? I sure hope it works, I know in my case I would not be so forgiving. Audra would be grounded, no candy for a day. Also tell Adam I can't wait anymore for our cars

Ty got really excited to post his first and last comment on someone's blog. And just for the record Tyson also really admires Edward's love for Bella, although I have never read them, he has.

Haha! I love Edward. This is so funny, because I just read a blog that my mom sent me the link to all about husbands dealing with wives who are obsessed with Edward. It's pretty funny. It has a helpful guide for the husbands so they can try to act like Edward would in any given situation. I don't know if it works to paste links in comments, but I'll try:

If it doesn't work to click on it, you can at least try copying and pasting it.

I did the same thing to Dallas!! Everytime anyone even mentions the twilight books he has to roll his eyes. But...I'd be much less jelous if he was in love with a fictional character from a book than some hot movie star. Don't ya think!!:)

Gretch I totally agree with you on that. I need to read this book now.

Kami said...

Hi Gretchen! How fun to hear from you! Your kids are darling! Heather and Casey are our neighbors.

About Edward, I felt the same way, and you are right, our poor husbands.

Hey Gretchen! I'm glad you found me!
You have the cutest little family! It was fun to see what you're up to. Are you still doing yoga? I agree with you that it does fill the dance void. That's why I do it too!
I just started reading the Twilight Series so we'll see what happens... I have a tendency to develop crushes when I read books. :) Love your blog!

Watts Family said...

Hey Gretchen
It's Chanel. Thanks so much for your comment. I think that your family is so beautiful and I am glad that I can catch up with your family thriugh this blog thing. I am not making a comment by the way regarding those books. Yes, I have read them, dropped a bunch of IQ points, and am aorry to admit that I loved every minute of it. Sigh.

I am going to go private with my blog and I want you to come with me. Will you send me your e-mail address to Ashlee2224@yahoo.com

Man.. he is so hot and I don't really even know what he looks like. I love Edward and Craig is cool with that. The thing is... girls fantasize about how he would treat us and make us feel and guys fantasize about something different with the girl characters. Sorry to be so truthful but you know it is! That is why we can and they can't!
