My coworker has another position in our building also and in her new office she found these stuffed animals, left unclaimed by the last tenant. She had no use for them, so I took them to my friend’s because she has a little boy and will soon have a little girl. But they did get to hang out in my office for a few hours. I named them Moose and Puppy. I’m super creative.
I wanted you to get a feel for how big these stuffed animals really are, so I took a picture with them. It was actually pretty difficult to hold them both AND take the picture. A lot harder than it looks.
This post is about to nerd out like I’ve never nerded out on this blog before. Hopefully, you can relate.
My friend Deborah loves Harry Potter. LOVES! I don’t love it quite as much as she does, but I still love it a lot, so when she suggested having a weekly Harry Potter party to watch the movies (one each week), I was reminded why we’re best friends. Best. Idea. EVER!
Last night was the first night and we started off the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Do you remember what year that movie was released? 2001! Holy cow! I grew up with the awesome experience of being as old as Harry, Ron and Hermoine were in the books, so I was just a year older than him with the movies. This might sound super nerdy (I’m beyond caring about being judged) but I really felt like they were my friends! They were a big part of my childhood and my growing up years! Anyway, the movie night was a success!
Some of us dressed up. I’m a Gryffindor, so I made Teddi (who was also dressed as a Gryffindor, although she has not yet been sorted on Pottermore) take a picture with me. HP parties are about all graduation robes are good for after the actual graduation.
We also had HP themed treats. One thing you can’t see is the Butterbeer. Whoa. It was really sweet and rich. Almost too much. Plus it’s the most carbonation I’ve had in REALLY long time. Bad Alyssa!
It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to keep doing this every week for the next 7 weeks til we finish all the movies!
Another goal I have this summer with my friend Nan is to acquire all the seasons of Friends and watch them in order from start to finish. I have done this a couple of times already, but seriously that is my all time favorite show. I’ll never get sick of it.
Admit it, are you a Harry Potter fan?
Have you been sorted on Pottermore? What house are you in??
If you’re not a HP fan, what do you nerd out about?
