Weekend Getaway (aka I really need to move to the East Coast)

My weekend adventures began at a very early hour on Saturday. (I'm posting this picture because I know a lot of you don't believe that I've actually ever seen this time of day)

I flew into Baltimore where Tara picked me up. When this whole weekend was planned she graciously said she would put me up for the weekend so that I didn't have to pay for a hotel (which would have made the trip impossible so I was extremely thankful for her). We went to her house where Sarah (aka Tink) joined us. I didn't take a ton of pictures so I'm posting this one from the concert so you can see who these two fabulous ladies are. I met both of them through TwilightMOMS and go to hang out with them in both Forks and at TwiCon.
We started out the evening at Ava's which is an adorable pizza place in St. Michael's. I had an amazing pizza with caramelized onions and Gruyere cheese on it. We also splurged on the cupcake of the day which was very yummy.

After dinner we went back to Tara's and watched the DVD of the Breaking Dawn Concert with Stephenie Meyer and Justin Furstenfeld. (Did you expect any less? We met because of Twilight and were going to a Blue October concert the next day.)
The next day was the concert so after a yummy breakfast at Perk (which I didn't take any pictures of) we headed into DC. My pics from the concert are in the previous post.

Monday morning was the 6th Annual 1-800-Suicide press conference on Capitol Hill. I'm going to write up a whole separate post about that because it was so amazing. That hour and a half was worth the entire trip. Hopefully I'll get that posted in the next couple of days.

After the press conference we headed back to Maryland. Tara took me on a tour of St. Michael's, the cute town that she lives in. It's so fabulous! I would love to live there! Check out some of the scenery-

We also stopped at this little Irish shop that was a little piece of heaven on earth! One day I will go to Ireland, I swear it!

These are for my Twilight friends- 2 variations of the Cullen Crest ;)

Monday night we had dinner with my friend Amy D. We were so busy talking that the hours rushed by and we had to leave when the restaurant closed. We didn't get any pictures :( I do have a picture of Amy and I at TwiCon though. She's the beautiful blond in the middle ;)

Sadly my time on the East (or right, as Kara calls it) Coast came to an end too quickly. Tuesday morning Tara and I had breakfast and then headed to BWI :(
I had such an amazing time and am so blessed to have these wonderful people in my life. Once again, I'm in awe of all the great things Twilight has brought into my life. If it hadn't been for a book about vampires and werewolves I would never have met Tara, Tink & Amy or heard of Blue October. This is why I still love Twilight and this is why I am thankful that I found a little cyber home called :)
