I had a lovely birthday yesterday. Thank you all for your kind wishes! My day started off with my favorite breakfast (which, if you've been here for a while, you might remember is chocolate chip pancakes ;). Then I opened presents. Among other things, I received a Barnes & Noble gift card (which I've already used up, hehe) and some TOMS, which are really comfortable.
I'm doing a three-week writing camp (from 9-12) so I had that in the morning. And in the afternoon?
The Civil Wars! I was originally going to go to their concert, but then it sold out. However I found out later they were also doing a free performance at a record store. Fate. We (my mom, sister and I) had to wait out in the blistering sun for a while, but I think it was worth it. We were pretty close, much closer than we would have been at the real concert, and I got their autographs! And a high five. And their CD. But we had to pay for that. :P Anyway, it was amazing and I'm so glad it worked out.
That's my camera zoomed in as far as it will go (55mm) with no cropping/editing.
We ended the day with some ice cream. My flavor of choice? Gryffindor Tower. (It was pink with M&Ms, and I don't know exactly what it was but it tasted good, so that's all that matters.) They also had Butterbeer and the Sorting Hat. Oh, yes.
Have I mentioned how excited I am for tomorrow night? Only a hundred times? Well. I am prepared to cry a lot. Is anyone else seeing Harry Potter at midnight tomorrow? (Mayrose, you can put your hand down.)
Taz is very excited, too, as you can tell.
