So, here is some of the fun stuff we did for our adult Harry Potter Movie Marathon Party a few years back. (We watched the first 7 of 8 movies between 2 days, so everyone would be refreshed on it all, the week before it opened- it was a very daunting task!) We were kind of on a tight budget, so things are not as nice as I'd like them to be, but considering I believe I did all the decor, food, beverages, planning, etc. in less than a week, I think it turned out well. hehe
I cut everything out on my Cricut and made my own Platform 9 3/4 sign! (Still hangs in my craft room to this day!)
I hand-painted these bricks on a red plastic table cloth I got at the dollar store. Was VERY time-consuming, but I was determined to have this at my party.
We only had one bathroom at our old place, so you just had to deal with Moaning Mertle... hehe
Our bookcases (in all their messy glory, back then)
Another shot of the brick platform walk through.
Ready to watch all 7 movies!
My hubs dressed as a Weasley. Sadly you can't really tell that I wrote on the bunting, but it was very "House Colors" looking. ;)
Your generic food spread, but with more fun Harry Potter-themed names...
Gotta have popcorn for a movie marathon!

So, of course I had to scrapbook the event! We had fun with friends watching the movies and enjoying all our Harry Potter fandom. I also have scrapbooked our love for the movies, and our visit to the Wizarding World in Universal Studios in Florida.
Love for Snape:

I normally don't like to show pictures of myself from a few years ago, aka. the fat years. This was one of those times where I can really notice how big I was a few years ago. For those of you who are new followers, I joined Weight Watchers in October of 2011 and lost about 65 pounds in a year. I've been trying to maintain that for this past year, and I think you really can tell the difference in these two "Harry Potter fandom" pics! hehe. Normally I'm not into pictures of myself, but it really goes to show how 65 lbs can really change a person.
Anyways, Have a wonderful Weasley-filled Wednesday for my fellow Potter-heads, and for those who don't enjoy Harry Potter, sorry for this fan-filled post for the day.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
