Just me and the girls. We were ready for a crazy fan-girl weekend. Or at the very least a crazy girls' weekend where we made fun of the fan-girls. (not jk though. never jk. she's the coolest fan-girl i know.)
I have to come out of the closet here and say that, for me, the trek to Forks is more about the girl time and fun with the gals than Forks itself.
If you put a gun to my head and made me choose, I would say that although I'm ardently Team Jacob in the Twilight series, I'm definitely more of a Hunger Games girl. I love me some goofy teen romance, but in the end, I'm not so much a twihard as others.
And you all know that Team Charlie is my thang.
Don't get me wrong, of course I'm a fan. Who else travels all the way up to the Olympic Peninsula besides someone who has a little teeny bit of crazy fan-girl in them?
Yep. I'm a nerd.
So, onto the pictures.
the infamous sign
the sign for forks h/s. interestingly enough, it's on the chamber of commerce lawn, not the h/s.
the "forks h/s." again, interestingly enough, not in forks. actually in kalama, wa, a long way from forks.we stopped here on the way to forks and since it was a fri. afternoon, school was in session. jess refused to get close to the school, "we're gonna look like creepers, there are kids here! we'll get arrested!" something like that, anyway. haha! i was able to make her mama pose with me, though!
no trip to the area is complete without making it to the treaty line!
the sunset at first beach was gorgeous.
this is a blurry phone picture of me at the "Bella's Birthday Board." people post notes to bella on here. lots of "how could you treat jacob that way?!" "team jacob!" and "team cullen!" notes. seriously. so, what else would i post on this board? that's right. "team charlie!!" i'm pointing at it here.
when we came back to town, look who had showed up. that's edward's volvo, ladies!
we also ran into alice and jasper. poor jasper just can't seem to get his hair right. notice the orange tint?
and, because forks would like you to know, they are not all about twilight, here my friend ellen and i are posing in a hollowed out tree trunk. they were first a timber town, you see.
So, as you can tell, I didn't go as overboard with the picture taking as I did last year. I actually had enough for 2 posts in 2010! There were a few changes in Forks...not a lot, but a few that were pretty disappointing for us.
But we did have a fabulous time, just chillin' out, bein' girls, shopping and having fun, so I would call it a success!!
