5 Things

1. As you read this (if you are reading this on Sunday morning), I am flying to Florida with my sister.

2. In Florida, we will be meeting our super cute, five year old little brother for the first time.

3. In other vitally important life-news, I will also be fulfilling a desperate dream of visiting Hogwarts, drinking butterbear, and possibly purchasing my very own Hermione-esque cape and wand at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. Does anyone else’s heart skip a beat when they hear that music? Just me?

Don’t judge.

4. When I told my dear friend Kristin, a fellow HP fanatic, that I was going to Harry Potter World, she immediately became furious with me, and then did the normal thing and bought a ticket for an overnight trip to Florida so she could go, too. I love my blog friends. (Matthew’s response when I told him this? “You blogger friends are just a weird little ring of people.” Touche, Matthew. I don’t think any of us would deny it.)

5. And last but certainly not least, I will be spending a day with Sarah Tucker.

 

Life = MADE.

 

Here’s a little Instagram picture of a quote I found and liked the other day. Made me think.

  1. Have an amazing time! I absolutely loved the Harry Potter ride & Hogwarts. It was fantastic.

    I'm totally confused about your meeting your little bro for the first time. Are you being intentionally vague or am I missing something??

  3. The FB snippet only showed that you were "visiting Hogwarts" so I got all excited that you were coming to England! Alas, no... but I hear the Harry Potter Studio tour at the London set is amazing... hint, hint! Have a great trip to FL!

  4. I'm with Emmy -- somewhat confused but excited about the brother!

    I am also incredibly jealous, I had NO idea such a place existed! I would buy a ticket and join but I'd say it's a little more expensive from this side of the world :( take lots of pictures though *sob*

  27. You're going to meet your brother? This sounds like an interesting story... I probably should be reading your blog more to find out the story behind this. And HP world is pretty cool! I went last Spring break with my boyfriend & we had a blast!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I didn't know you had a little brother! Although it's not like you know about me either so I shouldn't be so surprised! But that's so awesome that you're going to meet him for the first time!!
    And Florida!! I have family in FL, but it's northern florida. But be thankful you are flying(or have already flown) there, because a few yrs.ago my sister, brother, and I drove(well my sister and I drove) all the way down to Orlando FL, all night. It was the longest drive ever.
    But I hope you have a great time!!! Enjoy the beautiful beaches and great weather! Well, you're used to the weather. But still.

  46. Matthew's comment made me seriously laugh! Love it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who seems to missing the missing link about you having a brother, I knew about the sister but not the brother, that is super exciting for you to meet him though! He will LOVE you! :)

  48. Meeting your little brother for the first time? Now you've got me curious!

    Sounds like so much excitement for one trip! Between meeting your brother, visiting HP world (SO JEALOUS!), and hanging out with Sarah (love her blog!), I think I'd just about overdose on all of the resulting happiness!

    Gotta love Matthew's comment, too funny! Have an awesome time!

  51. You will have a COMPLETE blast at Harry Potter World. We went the summer that it opened and it was AMAZING. Have a great time!

  52. Nice post. I study one thing more challenging on different blogs everyday. It would at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store. I'd want to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don't mind. Natually I'll provide you with a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
