Harry Potter!!! (and t-shirts)

If there is one thing I love almost more than anything else (including Burn Notice) it is Harry Potter! As much as I love Harry Potter, I have never gone to a Harry Potter midnight showing before. How is this possible you ask? Well, because I value my sleep. And I don't enjoy movies after midnight usually, because I am so tired. But I decided with this last movie coming out, that I need to sacrifice some sleep to show what a true fan I am and go to the midnight showing. I am going with my sister and brother-in-law and we made these truly awesome shirts (pictures to come soon). Making those shirts was quite an adventure. At first, we were gonna try what my sister Linda did with these Robin Hood shirst she made where you bleach a black shirt. It was proving to be monstrous. We had to cut out all the letters and we only had a dull exacto knife (I cut my finger in this horrible process) and then we tried bleaching on shirt . . . to epic failure. To be honest, I was ready to quit right then. Then we thought about the shirts we made for Halloween. We used this thing my mom calls Stitch Witchery (but is actually called Heat and Stitch or something like that) where you iron on what you want. We decided to do that. It was tricky too, but not nearly as tricky as the bleaching thing. And they turned out so stinkin cute! I can't wait to wear it tonight!

Me from O-Z

Outside activity I love: playing tennis (though this technically can be done inside)
Pet peeve: extreme PDA and super loud chewing
Quote I love: "Build a man a fire and you warm him for a day. Set a man on fire, and you warm him for the rest of his life."
-Terry Pratchett
Right or left handed: right
Siblings: four. One brother, three sisters, plus two brothers-in-law. Both named Scott, oddly enough.
Treasured memory: getting sealed to my family
Unspeakable vow: if it's unspeakable, why would I tell you? Haha (plus I can't think of any anyway)
Vegetables I dislike: mostly all . . . I'm just picky
What makes me smile: Burn Notice, cookies, funny jokes, good movies, great times with friends, thinking of a song I love and then hearing it on the radio almost immediately after I think of it . . . lots of other things that I can't think of right now
X-rays I have had done: one on my middle finger when I sprained it (thanks for nothing Spencer George) and another on my foot. It was hurting really bad, but there was nothing wrong with it so it turned out to be a waste of time
Yummy food I make: blueberry muffins
Zoo animal: Koala bear
As another note, my sister had her baby! Her name is Ella and I really, really, really wish I could go see her :(
