i have a confession

 i love harry potter.
not just a little. but a real lot.
there it is.
 the first step is admitting.

last night amy and i sat in line for 3 hours to get good seats for us and our boys on the last film's midnight opening (max spent the night at mamaw's).
we 2 grown mothers were herded around from one line to another like cattle smooshed between gaggles of teenagers. it was humbling. and totally worth it. 

i may or may not have drawn a lightning bolt on my forehead with an eyebrow pencil, then rubbed it off on the way to pick amy up. 

but you can bet your bottom dollar i dressed in gryffindor colors. 
it's reached that level, i'm afraid.
but my oh my was the movie amazing! breathtakingly good.

can we still be friends?
happy happy weekend, loves!

  3. katie!! nooooooo. =)

    this is funny though, because levi and I were driving down I-75 S and saw the insanely crowded lot of the cinemark theater and said "what in the WORLD!?" then it dawned on us. we saw the line and the costume capes...

    so in short, WE SAW YOU!! i'm sorry the line was so long, but glad it was enjoyable. hehe you crack me up. and i do like the outfit.

  5. I am proud to admit that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan! But, I'm way too embarrassed to admit that I think Snape is kinda hot.

  10. We went to the midnight show too! And Jose totally drew a lightning bolt on his forehead with my eyebrow pencil and then wiped it off in the line, haha. I wanted to dress up but nobody ever wants to do those things with me. You look so cute! Hope you enjoyed the movie, we loved it!

  12. Katie... can we still be friends?!?! What kind of ridiculous question is that! HP is the besssssst! I'm about to pee my pants I'm so excited! I'm also dressing in house colors (Gryffindor of course) and I have got my scar on! Yeay! I can't wait. I'm so thrilled you loved and I love you even more after reading this!

    Mischief managed!
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA so excited!

  13. I too stood, sandwiched between teeny boppers in tiny plaid 'uniforms' and emo kids that were obviously too cool to be there...I almost wanted to put my sunglasses on as a disguise-at 11pm-But I would do it again:)

  14. Yay! Another HP fanatic! We're taking our oldest - who has blazed through the books and loves HP as much as we do - to an afternoon showing tomorrow. It's the only one he'll get to see in the theater so we're going all out and seeing it in IMAX 3D! So excited! Your outfit is perfect!

    (he celebrated his 9th birthday last week with an awesome HP party. you should check it out. it was great fun!

  15. I like how everybody gets excited with HP movies... I ve seen 6 of them and I suffered a lot. Maybe Im missing some HP Movie gene.
    They killed my beloved book and I dont like when that happens. But maybe the last 2 movies wont be like that because I read the 7th book only once and it was year or two ago. I love your Griffindor Outfit! ;-)

  16. HAHAHAHHA! You may or may not have drawn a lighting bolt on your forehead :) Good stuff..I am this way about the twilight series and I always feel silly admitting it!

  17. 100 cool points to you, Miss Katie!!! HP is the bomb and there's no shame in the game. I waited in line for the last Twilight midnight premiere for 6 hours, while pregnant. Nerds have to do what nerds have to do!

  18. I love that you dressed in Gryffindor colors! Oh man, I can't wait to see it this weekend!

  19. 10 points to Gryffindor!! I dressed in Ravenclaw blue/silver per the movies :D (I'm 32! Loveloveloved it!!) You rock!

  20. Love your outfit! Absolutely perfect!

  22. love your confession! and your gryffindor colored outfit! can't wait to see it too! i thought the first part of the seventh was the best yet, and have heard this one tops them all!

  23. LOVE your outfit. And also love this whole post. <3

  24. Who doesn't? And what a great 'grown up' outfit for the occasion!

  25. I am an admitted Harry Potter nerd. I've read the books. I listen to them on audio all the time. (Jim Dale, the narrator is amazing!) and I'm currently re-watching all the movies with friends before I see the new one. (my dislike of crowds almost outweighs my desire to see it, we'll see how long my resolve lasts.)

    I'm going to have to dress in Gryffindor colors as well when I go!

  26. please don't feel bad. I wore a white button up and burgundy+golden tie, & my boyfriend wore a gryffindor quidditch jersey.
    HP forever!

  28. I love your Gryffindor outfit! How adorable are you!? :)

    I am so sad the films have come to an end. I may go off and cry now....

  29. i came across your blog and fell in love! i love the "softness" aesthetically ;D i need a better camera, and should probably look into purchasing photoshop cuz i do so love taking pics but sadly use a dumb point and shoot and mostly blurry camera phone since it's the quickest. hahha
    I just think you're gloriously beautiful and i so love your sweet family, you remind me of friends and family i grew up with in California SO MUCH!! where do you guys live? it looks lovely and has so many adorable, quaint shops and small town feel. I look forward to reading more and more!
    And thank u for sharing your divorce story, my sister went thru something extremely similar so i know the heartache, the time healing you, and the chance for happiness once again-which i see you have accomplished with your man now. You never know how your story can touch someone going thru the same thing. Sorry this is the longest comment ever in the history of mankind...;)

  30. Katie, I adore this! I love Harry Potter as well. I plan on trying to convince my sister to come with me to see the last one. It's too bad that I wasn't able to see it on opening night.

  31. No shame in HP love! I adored the film, and everyone else in the theatre did too because we all clapped at the end. :)

  32. can we still be friends?

    i just smiled at that.

  33. I love your gryffindoroutfit. I love it even more that you drew a lightning bolt on your forehead, even if you rubbed it off.

    ReplyDelete
  34. your outfit looks so great! i went with my best friend and our husbands at midnight (we're all 26) and had a great time. we drew lightening bolts on our faces like ziggy stardust and loved seeing all the kids in costumes. midnight movies are my favorite. it makes everything seem so festive!

  35. Oh yes, of course. Harry Potter is the most awesome book series ever. Just thinking about it makes me smile. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    Can't wait for your photo tab on your blog. I want to know what lovely processing you do to your photos!
