Doing My Part

 Whew... Ok, my vacation came to a screeching halt the day before yesterday so I took some time to unwind, unpack and upload a BUTT-LOAD of photos.  And when I say BUTT-LOAD, I mean it.  You'll see; I will be posting MANY here over the next week or two.  You'll get to see all the fun!  My vacation consisted of attending a family member's birthday party in NM, hanging out with a dear friend who abandoned me to move to ID and then attending a wedding for a friend of the family in WA.  Well... you didn't expect this Twi-tard to go all the way to WA and NOT visit Forks?????  I mean, I HAD to do my part to support this economy, right?!?  And boy did I!!!  After I loaded myself down with all the Twilight trinkets and key chains that I was going to be giving away to all my fellow Twi-tards when I returned home, I also picked up a few little "happies" for myself.

 Along with my own key chain, two tee shirts, bumper sticker, bracelet, charms and decal, I also picked up this VERY UNIQUE rear view mirror ornament.  I LOVE this thing!!!

And the final piece de resistance is my new MACHINED METAL Twilight clock!!!  My husband who so WONDERFULLY humored my Twilight obsession during this trip to Forks was actually the one to find this gem.  I'm so so glad he found it.  I wasted NO time putting it up the minute we arrived home!

So those were the fun goodies I got, we also did a tour of Forks seeing the Cullen house (the one from the book), and Bella's house with her truck parked outside of the hardware store.  And you know I got pics of the high school and Charlie's police car parked at City Hall. There was even "Twilight Firewood" on the side of the road. But the highlight of the trip was DEFINITELY La Push.  I have THE MOST WONDERFUL pictures to share with you.  I have to do a little editing (forgot the date stamp was on in my camera), but I will be getting those beauties up as soon as I can.  I am hoping to return to La Push to just hang out for a week or so... that would be the most wonderful vacation all by itself!  I will go into all of that when I do the La Push post, so check back for that!!!

Alright folks, I'm off to watch Twilight.... AGAIN!

I love that key chain! It's beautiful. I would have loved it even if it wasn't a Twi-thing. :) Love reading your posts about your trip!
