Special Day  
I just had to make a quick post because today is a very special day in my family!! This is my Mom's birthday so I had to make sure and wish her a very Happy Birthday. :D I love my Mom so much, she's been such a light in my life. I've put her through some really difficult times in the past and I have always felt such tremendous guilt over it. She continues to be the most kind and understanding person I know. I feel very blessed to have her in my life and I hope to for a very long time to come. ^^

I also forgot to wish my friend forallseasons a Happy Birthday yesterday. I'm so sorry, hon. I hope you had a wonderful day, surrounded by your friends & family. *hugs*

Happy Bastille Day to all those who celebrate. I would really love to get my Mom to France someday for her birthday!

Well, tomorrow's the big day- HP & THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE is finally being released!!! To anyone lucky enough to be going to a midnight showing, I hope you have a blast. I may wait just a little bit before I go to see it, just because I want to enjoy it and not be stuffed in a theater with a million other people.
happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to your mom :)

I won't be going to the midnight showing either- too long movie, too late in the night... But I don't think I'll be able to wait longer than a day after that to see it :)

I know, I really wanted to see it opening day, but I'm not good with big crowds and people talking through the movie. :/

Thanks so much! I really hope the movie will be good. Usually the books are SO much better, but I enjoy seeing things played out as well. :D

I didn't see the first couple of films at the movie theater, but after the third one was released I really got into it! <3

Many times I wait for the DVD release too, but for HP, I usually go see them when they come out. Just waiting a little bit before I do. ;D

happy birthday to your mom, bb! ♥

you are so right about HBP. it'll be released here on 23rd, and there will be a midnight showing, but i won't go to that one, because a) i'd be very tired, and b) i refuse to watch it in an extremely stuffed theatre. not to mention that you can't hear ANYTHING over the screams of the teenage girls, yes? LOL. but i absolutely can't wait for it to come out here!

Thank you!

It's killing me to have to wait to see HBP but I am determined to enjoy it in peace, so I'll hold off for as long as I can stand. ^^

I can't wait to see HBP. I'm in total fangirl mode. :D

Happy Birthday to your mom!

Hope you have fun when you see HBP!! I understand what you mean about not going when the theater is full. If I had been able to stand the wait, I probably would have waited 'til the NEXT weekend after Public Enemies was released to see it!

You have no idea how hard it is to wait but I just can't stand being in a packed theater and not being able to hear the movie. Hopefully I'll be able to see it shortly though. ^^

Hope your mum had a good birthday, that´s so sweet what you wrote about her. :o)

I spent one 14 July in France when I worked there for a summer and in my opinion the celebration wasn´t anything special... they had fireworks but that was about it.
Maybe I´m spoiled, our national day is a HUUUUGE festive day!

Thanks, I appreciate your kind words.

Wow, you're so lucky to have gotten to France. Perhaps Bastille day wasn't all it's cracked up to be but we've always dreamed about going for her birthday. ^^

France isn´t all that far away from where I live, you know... ;o)
But I do hope you get to go there some day, great country. I´d probably make sure I knew some of the language before going though.

Well, if I got to choose, I'd love to go to England, but I know how much my Mom wants to get to France. I did take some French in high school, so I know a bit. ^^

Hope your mom had a nice birthday! My mom's birthday is coming up on August 7th. I have no idea what to do for it.

Hope you enjoyed HBP. I've only seen the first movie. I love the books though. Seems like it was popular over the weekend though, with it being the #1 movie in the box office! One of my online friends went to a midnight showing.

Thanks! I hope you come up with something wonderful to do for your Mom.

I still haven't gotten to see HBP but I hope to soon. You really should see the other movies, they get better and better as the series progresses! <3
