The Ultimate Harry Potter Round-Up!

Hi! It's Jilly. You guys may or may not know this, but I am a HUUUGE Harry Potter fan! Seriously. It's kind of sad awesome.

The first movie came out when I was in college. I was able to see a sneak peek before it came out. My friend worked at a theater and invited a bunch of us to come see "this kid movie with a bunch of hype." Well, I loved it! After that I read the first book and I was officially hooked!

I reread the first five books while I was in the hospital with the kiddos, and read HBP as soon as it came out during those long hours sitting on the couch nursing after the kids were born. (that's Half-Blood Prince for those of you who don't know Potter-speak)

Then, when Deathly Hallows came out, my hubby and I took turns reading it out loud to each other while caring for the kiddos. When the last movie came out I hosted a Harry Potter party before the midnight showing! And, when we went on our celebratory 10 year anniversary/med school graduation trip we visited the WWOHP.
I guess I have a soft spot in my heart for the series. It's been neat to watch the characters grow over the years, and I think of the books with warmth and fondness. The movies are good, too, but the books are better, of course. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to all things Harry Potter.
