I'm pretty much in LOVE with the Harry Potter series. I've read or listened to all the books and I own every movie and watch them over and over. I usually don't like fantasy stuff but for whatever reason Harry Potter is my FAVORITE! I love the stories and the heroism and the love interests and friendship and magic and everything about it. I think the movies have been done so well and they have created such a beautiful "magical" world. I would love to go to Universal Studios, Orlando and visit their Harry Potter world. I know I'm a dork! the past couple of weeks leading up to the 8th and final movie, I watched all the movies consequtively and I fell in love all over again. Every day when Josh came home he would find me intently watching one of the movies. I read the last book earlier this year so that I would know what happened. I couldn't wait to see the final movie and I wanted to end the series by actually reading a book. We went Friday to see Deathly Hallows part 2 in IMAX 3D. It was incredible! the movie was fantastic and I am pretty bummed that its all over. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it whenever I want. So now you know, I'm a dweeb and I have an obsession with Harry Potter. If you haven't seen them, you should!
For the 4th this year we went to Bolsa Chica beach with some of my girlfriends from hygiene school. We had a lot of fun playing volleyball, smash ball, playing in the waves, eating, laying out and having a bonfire and s'mores. It was beautiful weather and there actually weren't that many people around. We didn't feel crowded at all. We were able to watch fireworks from all over. We could see Disneyland's fireworks, Huntington's, Long beach's and at least 12 other cities. It was amazing to have them going off all around us. Then as we drove home they were bursting up from alongside the freeway. I was overwhelmed with patriotism and pride in our country. I'm just so thankful that we live in such a wonderful country and that we have so much freedom. We are truly a blessed people and I'm proud to be an American. God Bless the USA! Happy Independance day to all :)
