Anybody who knows me, knows that I am just a tiny teeny little bit obsessed with Harry Potter. And not just the movies, in fact, I prefer the books. I've read them all, they're excellent and such a fun read, they really suck you in and you can't put them down! The last movie is coming out in July and I cannot wait to see it. But before that, certain preparations must be made. A friend of mine's boyfriend hasn't seen any of the movies, so we are hosting Harry Potter viewing parties/bbq - cannot wait. In addition, there's a Harry Potter Exhibition in the city right now which we have to go see (just as soon as our crazy busy weekends subside a bit!)
And to tie this post into the baby-relatedness of the blog: Sasha totally loves watching HP too! Granted, I think movies 4-8 aren't exactly toddler-friendly, so she's only seen bits of the first three. On our way to DC, after waking up from her nap, Sasha said "What's Dobby doing? He's hitting his head". A couple of days later at dinner, she asked where Snape was. And every time she sees Voldemort on the screen, she says "The mean guy has an ugly nose" This mama is so proud!!
And yes, as a matter of fact I am watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix right now (in my defense, Sasha's in school, the floors are clean, the dishes are washed, and the laundry is loaded).

P.S. I just realized that to further fuel  my addiction, ABC Family is running a Harry Potter weekend, starting tonight!! Good thing that our entire weekend is full and I won't have any time to actually watch, because otherwise I might have been very tempted.

I'd like to know where Snape is too actually. I have a bizarre fascination with him. xx

Well to be perfectly honest, Snape is a pretty awesome guy! And I guess my little girl has figured that out ;)
