My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week.
It is hard to believe all the violence that has been happening this week. It has hit us in the US really hard but there is violence all over the world. I hope and pray people realize that violence isn’t the answer and no more innocent lives are lost.
We are back from our vacation to Los Angeles and we had a lot of fun. On our first day we went to Universal Studios Hollywood. They had a smaller version of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter but it was still fun walking around. It felt like being in the movie! We tried butterbeer, which was good but too sweet for me. We also got our wands. I had such a hard time selecting which wand to get but I decided on Hermiones. It is an interactive wand that brings certain window displays to life. My daughter and I had fun casting spells around Hogsmeade.
On our second day we went to the Anime Expo. This was our first time to this expo and it was ok. We were disappointed with how unorganized it was but my daughter Kailee was happy to see her favorite dance group perform. Kailee dressed up as Detective Conan.
For our last 2 days of vacation we went around LA. My girls are so used to just going to Disneyland so we decided to do something different this summer. We went to Griffith Observatory, Little Toyko, Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica beach. While in Beverly Hills we visited the Paley Center for Media to see the Outlander costumes and set designs on display. If you are fans of this series and in the LA area you have to stop by. The costumes are beautiful and the hand embroidery is amazing.

I’ve been on Weight Watchers for 3 months now and I lost 7 lbs. BUT I gained 2 lbs. from our vacation. This is ok because it will be easier to stay on track now that I am home. Another thing helping me is my daughter Tyler Marie. We started playing Pokemon Go this week and we’ve been walking every day. If you are not familiar with this phone app basically it is a scavenger hunt for Pokemon. But you have to move around to get Pokemons. Our dog Koko also needs to lose some weight so this game is keeping us all moving.
How was your week?
