That's right, ladies and gents! I'm FINALLY going to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! (When you live an hour and a half away and still haven't been, it tends to reflect badly on your life decisions. Just sayin'.)
Butterbeer, Hogwarts and rides, oh my!
...I may be a tad overly excited for this trip. My mother keeps reminding me that I'm turning 29, and not 12. But I think that's just because she's failed to fully understand my love for those books!
To celebrate this excellent departure from my work schedule, I've pulled together a few songs that we'll be listening to during the trip....
And by we, I mostly mean me. Mom and I differ a bit in our music taste... But I TOTALLY intend to play the birthday card and veto any dubious music choices during the ride to Orlando. ( It's one of the few perks that comes with entering the last year of my twenties.)

GReads and is now run by the lovely Katelyn of Kate's Tales of Books and Bands. It's probably obvious by now that I love music almost as much as I love books! When I found out about Tune in Tuesday, I couldn't resist getting in on the action! Be sure to check back every week for new music and if you'd like to join us, just drop by Katelyn's blog and link up your post!
I decided to do things a little differently this week... Instead of linking to videos, I've put together a quick soundcloud playlist of the tracks.
Making the playlist this week are two tracks by the Swedish band NONONO (You might recognize "Pumpin Blood" from that Sparkling Ice commercial they play during nearly every break on HGTV... *clears throat* Not that I'd know anything about that, seeing as how I spend ALL my time lately working on Book 2...), two tracks from the amazing newcomers Sir Sly, Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke (Because that Jimmy Fallon video has had it stuck in my head for over a week now...), as well as the new Ellie Goulding song "Burn" and a track from the Revivalists that I've had on repeat a lot lately...
With any luck, you'll find something new there to enjoy!
Happy Tuesday, y'all! I've got some last-minute packing to do!
