January 2020 Reading & Blogging Wrap-Up

all about (11)

Goodbye January & hello February!

I managed to read 12 books in January, all of which were on my January TBR.  It’s been a few months since I’ve actually followed my TBR, so it feels good to kick off 2020 on a positive note.

Let’s see what I read this month…

Bookish Happenings (1)

My highlight of January 2020 was that we went on a family vacation!  Want to guess where we went?!?

My family visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  This was our first time visiting Universal Studios, and it definitely lived up to our expectations!

I’ve been dying to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter since it opened back in 2010, BUT the timing was never right.  Basically we were waiting until our kids were older, mainly our youngest, to fully be able to appreciate the trip.

As you can see, I had a marvelous time 🙂

My favorite Harry Potter ride was Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Ride.  Since this ride only opened this past summer, it is obviously a popular ride.  We really lucked out and only waited about an hour, and it was definitely worth the wait!  I also really loved riding the Hogwarts Express.  My inner 10-year-old heart was bursting!

Can we also talk about the highly underrated butterbeer ice cream?!  I tried the cold drink and the ice cream, but definitely preferred it in ice cream form.

  1. So cool that you went the Wizarding World of HP. I missed out on that Butterbeer ice cream when I went so obviously that means I should visit again, lol.
