Harry Potter

I love Harry Potter. So much that I saved The Deathly Hallows (the last book) until this week because I didn't want it to end.... Well, I read the book. I didn't cry, but I wanted to a couple of times. I loved the book, read it in about 4 days, and I can't wait for the movie! We're going to the double feature, Part 1 at 9 pm, Part 2 at midnight. I'm SO excited. Rotten Tomatoes is currently at 95%. That's pretty good.

Maybe I'm 12 years old, but I really want some of these things:

independence day

First of all, I just finished reading The Hunger Games series. I know, I'm way behind. Lucas has been trying to get me to read them for some time now ... I just loved them. I might have cried a little at the end. If you haven't read them, do it now. And ... they're making it into a movie!

Secondly, Happy 4th of July! It's one of my very favorite holidays ... I love the food, activities, and the general attitude of patriotism everyone has. Tonight we're heading up to Oakley for the rodeo. It's a pretty big deal up there. And I secretly want to live in Oakley. (bull picture from the Strawberry Days Rodeo)
