Forks?! Forks, Washington! Really?

So as most of you know, or at least should know, I love Twilight. I love the books, I love the cheeseball movie, I love Carlisle. I just love everything about them. And I love that they're set in WASHINGTON! You know it's gotta be good when it's set in Washington. Case in point? Grey's Anatomy, Sleepless in Seattle...I could go on, but you get the point. However, I lived in Washington for 24 years, and had never been to FORKS! Shocking right? Well not so much, when you consider (according to Wikipedia) the population is somewhere around 3120. And considering it's a logging town. With not many attractions, not many that is, until Twilight.

Now? They have a WHOLE store, called "Dazzled by Twilight". I love it. The cheesiness just sings to me! It was a pretty sweet store, with the meadow grass for carpet, and twinkle lights for stars, and anything Twilight you could ever imagine. I walked out of there with a Twilight onesie (now i just hope that the baby is a girl, because I just can't do a Twilight onesie on a boy :( ) , Carlisle chapstick, mmmm, a million postcards, some breath mints that were in a cute tin that said Mrs Cullen (That's Carlisle Cullen y'all. I told you, I have a thing for doctors!)

The best part of the 3 hour trip (yes folks, Forks/La Push is 3 hours away from my mom's house!) was my BFF Stacy. We had so much fun talking, laughing, singing. I love her so much, because we can just be stupid, and we don't care.

OK, before we get into the actual FORKS pics, here's Gabe eating a Krispy Kreme. I ate SO many freaking donuts, I blame them soley for my vacay weight gain.

We were just in Port Angeles for 30 minutes but the hubby wanted to go to the Hoh Rainforest so we "almost" drove through Forks! I thought of you though EVERY time I saw a Forks sign.

La Push looks awesome. Maybe if we ever do the rainforest thing we'll check out La Push.
