I apologize for the lack of update. College finals ran me ragged. Right after my birthday I broke out into hives, which left me unavailable to blog away.
Here is an update of my birthday: I survived the Harry Potter birthday marathon! I woke up at 9 am and to my total surprise, I was greeted with an acceptance letter from Hogwarts!! So amazing! Then, I pretty much started the marathon. Out of all the movies I watched Sorcerer's Stone and a little of Prisoner of Azkaban in the morning. As lunch and the afternoon approached, I watched Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix.
Nighttime soon came, and I made some delicious ButterBeer. I used one of the recipes in the comments at this page and I highly recommend it!! Finally, it was dinnertime (pizza, yum!), and we (we as in my mum & sis) watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. To top off the evening, we cut a slice of my Hagrid cake and watched (& sobbed) to Deathly Hallows Part 2. A long overdue birthday finally spent - it was amazing!
