Find Your House & Wand on Pottermore

To be honest, one of the greatest disappointments in my life so far has been that I didn’t get to go to school at Hogwarts. The magic! That castle! The outfits! And the preparation for a badass career in the Wizarding World! Even though we can’t really go, getting sorted into a house and being chosen by a wand on Pottermore is still pretty fun. When they opened the sorting quiz back up this week, I thought maybe I’d be Slytherin now… something about my thirties just made that seem possible. I’m still Ravenclaw though. ๐Ÿ˜€ And now you can get a wand too! TL;DR: I’m a huge nerd. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stephen Colbert is Fantastic

I’m generally not very into network TV late night shows… celebrities plugging stuff, random musical guests, only white dudes hosting. But Stephen Colbert hosting The Late Show is changing that. He’s brilliant and the show is basically a less political version of The Colbert Report where he gets to be himself instead of the right wing character he played for years. Also, he loves Harry Potter &ย his Caesar Flickerman is amazing (but I wish he’d add more women to his writing staff).

Puns & CSS

Listen, I love puns. I will literally buy a cake from you because you called your bakery, Nothing Bundt Cakes. And since I often spend my days looking at CSS, these are just my thing. See more: 34 CSS Puns Thatโ€™ll Make You Laugh, Even If You Arenโ€™t A Web Designer

Harry Potter Re-Watch

My husband and I re-watched all the Harry Potter movies over the past few weeks. If you’re and adult & haven’t seen them all, I highly recommend giving them a shot. The first two films feel quite young and geared more toward children, but are great for setting you up to love Hogwarts and wish you’d gone to school there. Once you get to movie three (Prisoner of Azkaban) things start to mature and get darker. By the time you hit the fifth movie (Order of the Phoenix — based on my absolute favorite book in the series), the series is grown-up, addressing serious political issues, and has some really dark moments. They’re also beautiful to look at… the moody coloring and expansive sets really shine. Basically: ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Life Update

Husband, tonight while lounging on the couch together watching the last Harry Potter movie: “Our house is so relaxing.” Agreed. Love it, love him, love life. Since that’s not always been the case for me, I appreciate it so much and am thankful to have reached this point.
