THE CHOSEN ONE ... JEN DAIKER. AND AN UNEXPECTED SURPRISE AT WIZARDING WORLD.
Greeting from Hogsmeade ...
I know it's been a while since I've posted and visited. So sorry for that, but time has been flying. On Monday, I met the amazing Jen Daiker. Jen and I found each other in the blogosphere because we are both INSANE HP addicts. SO naturally this would be THE most PERFECT place to meet!
Since I've been to WW several times, I had the pleasure of showing Jen, her hubby, and sister around. I LOVED experiencing it all over again through Jen's widened and excited eyes.
The weather was perfect and the crowds were minimal as we whisked ourselves through Hogwart's and the many exciting rides.
By noon we had lunch... where? The Three Broomsticks, of course. Jen sampled her first butterbeer! SO DELICIOUS!
After lunch, we had to get Jen her wand, so off to Olivander's we went. Lines formed with many of witches and wizards clamoring to get inside. Mr. Olivander only had time to chose one lucky witch or wizard and normally picks one of Hogwart's age.
As he descended the staircase his eyes locked on Jen! SHE GOT CHOSEN! Another magical moment! Deep down I knew she would be chosen. How could she not be? She was by far THE most excited person in the shop.
Here's a pic of Jen ... her face says it all!
As you can see Jen DOES believe....
The fun continued on Tuesday when Jen and her family met up with me. After a quick tour of the castle and flying broomsticks ride, we headed over to the lost continent. We had just finished the Poseidon show, and a text from non-other-than PK Hrenzo flashed.
YAY! PK had the time to join us! She arrived shortly and we all had another great lunch at The Three Broomsticks. She, too, is a HP freak!
Could this trip get any better?!!!!!
Here is PK and I in front of Shrivelshaftts... Need a quill anyone?
As you can see, PK has one of those fantastic butterbeers. She and I spent the rest of the afternoon touring Hogmeade, while Jen and her family scooted off to Universal.
I have to tell you all, meeting blogger friends is the ULTIMATE HIGH!
Tonight I am off to Mickey's Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.... The magic continues ... stay tuned.
