Twilight Weekend and a work in progress...

Yes, you know if you've visited me before that I am a twilight nerd. My daughter and I have read all the books and gone to the midnight movie premieres. Please don't judge me. :)

A dear friend of mine(also a twilight nerd) is expecting her 1st baby this summer and was in serious need of a getaway before being tied down with mommy duties. So we planned a fun little weekend drive to Forks, Washington! We brought along my friends mom too, she is so cute.

I think the sun came out just to welcome us.

This sign is in the window of the Fork's Visitors Center. They have a book inside they like everyone to write down where they came from. I flipped through and was stunned to see how far fans had come. People came from Brazil, the Phillipines, Australia, Germany, the UK, and all over the US.

Here's me, the wind was blowing so it was hard to get a good picture.

My darling girl Emma. They had cardboard cutouts in the visitors center that they let us use!

The truck in the background is from the movie. I think she and Jacob look really cute together!

Ok, this is not a twilight character. It's Damon from the Vampire Diaries. I have a teeny crush on him.

Here's Emma in front of Jacob's house

Beautiful La Push Beach. The tide was really high so we weren't able to walk along the beach.

Finally, I just wanted to share a little work in progress.

The face is just a little sketch I drew ages ago. I made a photo copy of her

and adhered her to the canvas along with some transfers. I'm just having

fun playing and getting messy with paint. I'm not really sure where she's going.

Thank you all for the well wishes on my last post. I finally went to the doctor and he said it was just a virus and I should be feeling better soon. I am feeling better, in large part to you my friends!

Sending love from Oregon♥
