WEEKEND UPDATE



RECAPS
1 | Harry Potter read-a-thon. Over the course of this week(end) I finished the last book in the Harry Potter series. I cried...a lot. I become very emotionally attached to fictional characters (especially after seven books), and this feels like the end of an era. Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Forever and always.

2 | Peter Pan. Did y'all watch Peter Pan live on Thursday night? It was so great! Peter Pan was one of my favorite stories growing up...my brother and I watched the disney movie over and over and over...and it was so fun to watch the play!

3 | Core group Christmas party. My core group has a Christmas party every year..it's my fave. We do Secret Santa gifts, eat yummy foods, and play games. This year we played Heads Up and laughed until we couldn't breathe. It was definitely a winner. I'm so thankful for those girls and all of the years we've walked through together.

4 | Disney has my heart. I went to see Big Hero 6 on Saturday and cried approximately six times. It was so much more than I had expected, and I definitely recommend going to see it! Disney is always the best.

OTHER FINDS
-- Holy LEGOs, batman!
-- You, yes you. You are important.
-- Yummy Christmas cookies.
-- Cutest baby in THE WORLD.
-- I want to make this PVC pipe wreath!
-- Need gift ideas for her? I've gotcha covered.

I loved the Harry Potter books. I think they're ones that I'll need to reread again at some point!

Kindred Spirits! I'm in the throws of starting the Goblet of Fire and I'm so excited to get my hands on it! And I love Disney! I'm so jealous that you guys are going so soon! Say hello to Snow White for me! She actually called me the other day! hah

Angela said...

Yayyy Harry Potter! I get so excited when people finish the series for the first time! So magical. :)

Rachel said...

I hate when a good book series ends it's such a let down! I love Peter Pan I actually asked my Mom if she could buy me pixie dust......I succumbed to jumping off of the furniture instead ha ha ha! It was a really fun play to watch, the sets were gorgeous!

Stacia said...

Had you ever read Harry Potter before? I adore those books. They get me every time!

Elizabeth Than said...

Love the adorable antlers! :p

Meg McIlvaine said...

Thank you!! Picked them up from Lowes! Haha!

Meg McIlvaine said...

No! Can you believe it?? I started the books later in life than the rest of the world :) I LOVED them.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Me too! I'm never ready for it to end!
Baha...that's amazing! Pixie dust. And yes, the sets were so pretty!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Get on it! ;) You will LOVE the last book. It is good, and sad, and good again.

Meg McIlvaine said...

It is! Oh man, I'm ready to read it again!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oooooh that's a good one!!
I will totally tell Snow White hello for you!

Meg McIlvaine said...

You can watch it on Hulu for free!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

NO! What happens??? Shoot, I knew we should have stayed. OH, but Feast was adorable!! I cried a little.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hulu! Oh wait, you did. :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

I will definitely be re-reading!

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

I didn't get to see Feasts. Sad. Because it's a screener it's the movie only. Stan Lee came back in the end as Fred's Dad and Fred found a secret room that was like a super hero headquarters. It was fun!

Stacia said...

I read them a bit later that a lot of people, too, but they are good no matter what your age. :)
