Harry Potter

Okay, let’s start from the beginning. Sorry I haven't posted in such a LONG time. But, here are few quick updates starting with "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows." As most of you know I'm an embarrassingly huge fan of Harry Potter. So, like last time Mindy J, Trevor and I decided that we wanted to be one of the first people in the UC to get the book. But, we knew that since this was the last book in the series it would be a little harder to be in the front of the line at 12:00. So, since Mindy and I are both prego Trev did the manly thing and spent the night at Barnes and Noble for us (we luv you Trev). Unfortunately, other fans had the same idea and had been sleeping at B&N since Wednesday (where do these people work?)!! Nonetheless, we got wrist bands that put us in the very first group to get the prized book!! Later that night in a cloud of fog (B&N had fog machines going all night, really set the mood :) we got our books! While walking out some guy offered me $100 for my book and as I was about to take the deal and just buy a new book at Wal-Mart the punk chickened out!! It was a weak moment, I'll admit, but $100 sounded good. From there we drove home immediately so we could all start reading. I stayed up until about 3 that night reading, but then fell asleep (growing a baby really makes you tired :) I read as much as possible on Saturday while still running errands and finally finished the book early Sunday. For those who haven't read the book, I won't ruin it for you, but I must say, it was my favorite book of the series, by far!

I found my old Harry Potter glasses from the book six party and thought it would be funny to wear them for a little bit while reading the book. I tried to get a pic of Seth wearing them, but he said, "I'm not a potter, I can't wear them." Needless to say Seth started reading the book as soon as I put it down and finished pretty darn quick for not being a "potter."
