Edward Look a Like...You Decide???

So, as the story goes...I, Libby, was shopping at Albertsons one Friday afternoon to have gone through a cashiers line to which the young man checking my groceries looked - to me, like the dreamy Edward Cullen from the book series, Twilight.

As I so wanted to take a picture right then, I decided against it. As my thoughts ran along I thought of many ways to conjure up a photo of this young man. I asked for much help, and received much help. I thank you all for your support and help in this mission I have accomplished.

Day one: I decided to stop at Albertsons to buy something. I go in and scan the checkouts - he is not working. I take my time in shopping thinking that he might be on a break, or has stepped away from his check stand. I finally arrive for checkout to see that he is still not working.

Day two: I stop again at Albertsons on my way home, it's a Monday night. He is working, I avoid his checkout, and try to take a picture with my cell phone. He is in the perfect spot for me to take it....Wait, he's moving towards me, my hand is moving up with the closer that he is coming towards me!!! It's to late - act casual, I say, "Stupid text messaging?!?!" I'm nervous, that is all I can come up with...I immediately leave the store.

Day two, still: Ethan and Libby are staying the night with us, I tell them of my attempt to get a picture of my "Edward look a like" and they decided to help me out. I had been thinking about how they can run in with my camera and take a picture. I tell them that they need to act like they are on a Family Home Evening scavenger hunt for their "Singles Ward". By the way, this could only pass if you live in Utah...stuff like this always goes down in Utah. We park the car, I hide out in the car and Ethan and Libby take off for the store, they go in do a quick walk through and as quick as they entered the store, they quickly exited the store. Nooooooo, as I pout in the back seat. This can't be, I was just in the store an hour ago. Tis true, they say. We then go out for some dessert, and decided that we'll try the "mission" after our dessert. Thinking that possibly he was on his break the first time. We try again, and he is still not there. Oh well, thanks anyways for playing and trying to help me out in my silly quest.

Day three: I was frantically packing for my trip up to Alaska on Tuesday night, and I was baking some cookies when the doorbell rang. Summer and Cash were visiting in the living room when I hear a young girls voice. About a week ago I had seen Tanya (a cashier at Albertsons) at the Kanarraville Post Office. I started visiting with her and then asked if she was still working at Albertsons. I then proceeded to tell her of my fascination with this certain young man who was a cashier at the store. She laughed, said she would ask her daughters what they thought - they had read the books. She also said she would see what she could do for me. I got excited for a brief ten minutes, then thought, this is so silly...how old am I??? However, Tanya followed through with my absurd request and had taken pictures of him for me, and had sent her daughter over to my house on Tuesday night to deliver the pictures. Her daughter thought that this was so funny of me. She also stated that he is way to young for me, and that he is not someone that I would want to "hook up" with. I told her that I didn't want to "hook up" with him, but that I was just smitten with his Edwardish looks. I then gave her a plate of warm cookies and told her to tell her mom - THANK YOU, this is a dream come true!!!

Well Everyone, I was able to go and do - mission accomplished! You asked, and I provided. Enjoy!!!

I think that he is way better looking than the sicko dude that is going to be in the movie. The guy in the movie gives me the creeps like he is a pervert or something in real life!!

I guess I can see a little resemblence.

I was at a craft fair the other night. They had t-shirts that said, "I only like guys that sparkle" and other such silly vampire stuff. I hope I never see anyone wearing one of them.

Hey, Libby. You ARE smitten. But he's cute! You know, older women and younger men DO hook up. You never know...

I can see some resemblance, but I like the guy in the movie much better. But I'm REALLY glad you finally got pictures of this guy! It's actually a really funny situation.

Libby your taste in men kill me. But thats why there is someone for everyone.

Jessie said...

He's not how I pictured Edward, but I know we have different tastes in men. I could see that he looks kind of like Rob Pattinson, but not really.

Wow! I don't think either one of them are cute! Not the movie one or the Albertson one. Sorry I just don't. You probably hate me forever now. HAve a good day!
