Monday Musings: It's Leap Day!


Highlight of the week: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!! It was even more amazing than I expected. Full post -- with tons of pictures -- to come! Another highlight was coming home from an 8-hour workday Saturday (after spending over 16 hours in the car on Friday) to find my husband, glue gun in hand, making me a "Monster Book of Monsters" photo album for all my Harry Potter pictures! He's a keeper. :)

Reading: I didn't get a ton of reading done on our Florida trip, but I did finish "The Guest Room" by Chris Bohjalian (not bad). I'm about 100 pages into "All the Birds in the Sky" by Charlie Jane Anders and I'm loving it so far.

Knitting: Not a single stitch this week.

Watching: This weekend we got caught up on the shows we missed during our trip: "Elementary," "Walking Dead" and "Survivor."

Eating: Tons and tons of BBQ. (Seriously, we ate barbeque four times in a week!) But you just can't get good fried okra here in Ohio (and definitely not in Hawaii, where we'll be spending the next three years) so we had to eat all we could handle!

Looking forward to: A quiet week at home. And getting my dentist appointment Tuesday over with. And seeing "Deadpool" at the theater. And going to Kohl's this afternoon to do a little shopping. AND I have a free drink to redeem at Starbucks!


  1. I can't wait to read about HP! I am so excited to go, but probably won't until Miss C is older and can enjoy it herself.

    1. It was absolutely amazing! I had so much fun telling all my co-workers at the library about it today. :)

  2. I hope you post lots of photos from your visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I'm so jealous (in a good way, of course!). How fun! I'm curious about Deadpool, but will likely not see it until it's on Netflix streaming. So it'll be awhile. A friend saw it and loved it. I hope you will too. Good luck at the dentist's and have a good week!

    1. "Deadpool" looks decent but it isn't necessarily a must-see for me; however, we have a free movie ticket coupon that expires super soon so we might as well go! (And Jarrod wants to see it.) I wish it expired just a little later so we could use it when we see "Allegiant" in a couple weeks!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
