Date Night - for the Twilight fans out there

Yesterday afternoon I drove up to Port Angeles to have a date with my hubby. His ship goes there for bunkers (feul). It's about a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive, but well worth it of course. Usually I get to board the ship and stay the night, but they were leaving too early this morning so I just drove home last night. So we had our Valentines dinner.... So, this is for all you Twilight fans. I was reluctant to read the series but I did and it was pretty weird becuase I knew so much about the locations she wrote about. Specifically the restuaruant Edward and Bella went to on their first day. This is my husbands favorite restuarant to eat at when he's working, and whenever I come to visit in PA we always go there. So I snapped a picuture. I only took a couple outside because it's very small and I didn't want to irritate the other patrons. It's funny because since the book came out they've had a ton of tourists and they even did some upgrading to the interior. New paint, new lighting etc...Before it was just a small aged Italian resturant. I guess they had to up thier game.
The best mussels in the world - Penn Cove Mussels (from Bella Italia)
Ok, the second part of this post I wanted to show you that patch I was talking about. This is what I left the PT's office with. That knob in the middle is something they used to hook up a little piece of technogy for a few mintues to "jump start" the IB into my skin. Weird.
I was going to try my 3 mile run today, but I have decided to wait until tomorow. I figure 1 more day of rest will not hurt, plus since I drove up to PA yesterday I didn't get a chance to ice or stretch. I will be home all day to do that today.
I have also pretty much given up on my weight loss goal for now. There is no way I can achieve it since I have not been able to run. It's cool. I've accepted it. I will pick up where I left off once I get to start running again. I'll be happy just to hold steady until then.

I was super resistant to reading the series too but when my sister-in-law passed me a bag full of books and the first two were in the bag, I figured what the hay, I'll give them a try. As I said in my last post, I am totally sucked in.

Cute that you went to that restaurant. As much as Edward, in the book, is a total heart stealer...I LOVE the sun and therefore, must stick with the humans =). Good thing my hubby isn't a vampire, we would have had to chose a different honeymoon location =).

Hope the leg is better tomorrow. Rest days are so important when you have injuries. You'll be back out there in no time.

Very sexy patch, I must say. Hahahha. Better to rest more then try to over do it. I'm sure you don't even need to loose weight (:

I resisted reading the series for the longest time. Just as feared, I completely got hooked.

Those mussels looked yummy!!
