It dawned on me late last night that I completely forgot to mention that I am going on vacation next week. From July 10 to July 17, I will be down in the Orlando area with my family. My parents are taking everyone down for our first whole family vacation in YEARS.
Needless to say, I am super excited about escaping Michigan for awhile and heading for Florida. We have grand plans-going to the beach, shopping, going to a Disney park (we haven't decided which one yet), and of course, going to the Universal Studios park and MOST IMPORTANTLY, going to Harry Potter World!! This is probably the thing I am most excited for. The last time I was down there, they were building the castle, so it will be amazing to see the completed thing. :) It will also be really cool to be there during the week before the release of the final movie (good timing!).
I will also be spending my 26th birthday down there (July 15-which is also the release date for the final movie. Best. Birthday. Ever.). Can you tell that I am really excited about it?
I also wanted to mention that Sunday night we had a birthday party at my parents house for my little sister, my sister-in-law Lauren, and myself. My family all chipped in and bought me the most marvelous new toy-a Nook Color! I've been playing around on it for a bit, and I have even downloaded a few new books onto it. It'll be making the trip down to Florida, so I can try out reading on it.
For anyone who has a Nook or Nook Color, any tips, tricks, etc that I should know? Any freebies I can download? :) The help is much appreciated.
That's all for now. I have some time set aside tonight to write reviews and get things set up, so you should see more bookish posts in the very near future!
