A Mom's Vacation

So this last weekend, I had the fabulous opportunity to take a trip to see my best friend, Meag. She has recently relocated to the state of Washington, which makes for a much cheaper (and shorter) flight!

I flew in Thursday afternoon and we had a quiet evening.

Friday was THE day. And if you are a New Moon fan, you know what I'm talking about. We had originally planned on going to an evening show, but our anticipation got the best of us and we traded in our tickets for an earlier show. The movie did not disappoint in the least. It was fantastic...and then fantastic on top of that. So much better than Twilight.

After the movie, we did some shopping and then headed over to some friends' house to watch the BSU game and play games. There *may* have been some drinking, too.

Meag, enjoying her drink.......and headband! I love this girl!

Saturday morning, we got up fairly early because we were making our trek to FORKS. For those who don't know (you poor, unfortunate souls......great, now that song is stuck in my head), Forks is where the Twilight books take place. It's about three hours from where Meag lives, so we knew this was going to be an all-day event. But we had our giddy smiles on!

This was in Aberdeen, where we stopped for some Starbucks.

I don't remember exactly where we were when I took this picture, but the fog was just gorgeous.

Also on our way, was a stop at the coast....I LOVE the ocean. It's so peaceful.

And then, we arrived!
Forks High School

The Swan House

There were several Twilight stores......we were in heaven! We went to all of them.

And there was some great stuff!

And we were THOSE cheesy fans......yes, yes we were.
And here's what I came away with:

Sunday was my day to leave, but my flight wasn't until the evening. So we set off for Seattle early and ended up doing some great shopping. We stopped at the Nordstrom Rack, which was a fantastic place full of good deals. And then it was time to say good-bye and hop on a plane. It was such a fun visit and I really hope that since Meag lives closer, we can make these visits MUCH more often!!
