Friday really snuck up on me this week! Although I will say I did mix up my days last night, thinking it was Friday night, which was a bit disappointing when I remembered I needed to set my alarm for this morning. I just wanted to sleep in! This weekend’s a busy one, but filled with exciting things! It’s the annual Harry Potter Celebration weekend at Universal, and of course, I’ll be making my way over there! My dad also got tickets for the fam to see The Lion King on broadway this weekend, so I’m looking forward to that as well! Do you have any big plans for the last weekend of January?
Fellow Harry Potter people, where you at?! Pottermore has been revamped a bit, including the return of the Sorting Hat to determine which HP house you belong in. I’ve always thought of myself more as a Gryffindor, but ultimately, I’ve been sorted into Ravenclaw. Have you taken the quiz yet? Which house do you belong to? More updates are supposedly to come this weekend with the big HP Celebration over at Universal!
AMC Best Picture Showcase
Something I’ve been interested in every year but still have yet to make it, is AMC Theatre’s annual Best Picture Showcase. I always enjoy watching The Oscars but a lot of times have only seen a couple of the nominated films. This year, I’m hoping to see all of them to form a solid opinion on who/what I think should win. AMC holds a full marathon day of the nominees beginning the weekend before the awards show. It actually ends up being a little better on pricing (varies by location) than seeing each individually on separate days. I think it’s a pretty neat concept, but it is a long day of sitting in a theater! I’d love to see a stream-at-home package one of these days. Hopefully we’re not too far off from it!
Kristen Bell + Dax Shepard in Africaaaaaa
These two are the absolute cutest and really, my favorite Hollywood couple! They made a video to Toto’s “Africa” on a trip they took and it’s beyond epic! I seriously can’t stop laughing watching it!
