Anybody like vampires? Girls get away!!!

Anybody read the Stephanie Meyer Twilight books? Seriously, I can not believe how many people have jumped on the band wagon. My Mom and all of my sisters have read the whole series. When they announced the release of the final book of the series my family was so excited that they used it as an excuse to have a girls get away. Even though I did not order a book oh yes I was @ Barnes & Noble with the family & yes it was midnight and yes there were bunch of crazys (maybe I should not say crazys but devoted fans who like to dress up and stuff). Hey anything was worth hanging out with the girls though. We stayed @ the historic Biltmore Resort. Since I like the architecture and design of Frank Lloyd Wright, then you can imagine I was very excited to check this place out. It was so much fun playing by the pool. It really didn't matter where we were as long as we had each other. I think the highlight was when my Mom presented us with a gift that was definetly a labor of her love. She made us our own personalized bags for the 1st annual Vance girls get together. They are beautiful and I can't believe how much work she put into them. I sure love my Mommy. Can't wait for next year.



Thanks to all that made this event happen!! Especially Waylon @ home with all kids.


Biltmore Resort..very Frank Lloyd Wright.




Somethings never change.


The night just begins @ midnight.


Crazy that there was a life size chess set. Perfect photo opp with the release of the new book.



Fun in the sun!

How fun to get to hang out with ALL your sisters. Im so jealous. I sure was there at midnight and it was way too crazy for me. I read the book in 2 days and loved it. I would have given up the reading time to be by the pool in the sun hanging with the girls-thats for sure!! I bet it had been fun with Annie back in town. Tell her I said hi. Your mom is way talented-LOVE the purses!!
