Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Spent the entire weekend reading Harry Potter book 7. I didn't want to leave my house without finishing it for fear of any spoilers. So my dad and I spent Saturday afternoon till 1:30am this morning reading!!! It was really awesome to read with my dad... we would stop and share our theories (always trying to figure it out before the book revealed it), It was also really fun to react with someone when something happened - including me jumping around the room in excitement, and also having to hand off the book a couple times because I was crying too hard. With that said I will enjoy telling my kids that Grandpa and I spent two entire days held up in the house reading Harry Potter (something I would love to do with my kids too). It was really fun!!!
Now onto the book - I WAS PERFECT!!!! I could not have written a more perfect and wonderfully amazing stupendous ending!!! I wouldn't change a single thing because it was flawless!!! I laughed hysterically, cried uncontrollably, and beamed from ear to ear throughout the whole thing!! I am going to start reading it again!!
Oh also in honor of "Harry Potter Weekend" I bought my dad and I each a pack of Berti-Botts Every Flavor Bean - based on the candy from the book - they have all types of flavors from marshmallow, lemon drop, earwax, sardine, dirt, cherry, earthwarm, blueberry, and vomit. The worst I tried before giving up due to uncontrollable gag reflex were sardine and to my dad and mine's entertainment buttered popcorn... I heard Wild Flower Bread Company was selling pumpkin Pasties and butterbeers on friday and somewhere you could buy chocolate frogs, althought I couldn't find any.
I had a great weekend.
