Saturday night I was Potions Master at a Hogwarts Feast and Harry Potter Geek-Out Party. Six of us girls sat down to a mouth-watering feast prepared by Chrissi (publisher/biz partner/friend) and her house-elves, including roasted chicken, spare ribs, mashed potatoes and gravy, English peas, glazed carrots and Yorkshire pudding, plus treacle pudding for dessert. We were stuffed! As Potions Master, my job was to mix drinks and the drink of the night was…BUTTERBEER MARTINIS! OMG, so freakin’ good! Chrissi and I made up the recipe last week and did some testing to come up with the right mix. A lot … Continue reading

I just have to say I’m jealous of all you who get to see Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows this weekend. I’m at the Miami Book Fair, having all kinds of fun, and the theater show times just don’t work for us to get to see it. Waaahhhh!!!! It’s the first time I haven’t seen the movie opening weekend. It’s the first time since Prisoner of Azkaban, I think, that we haven’t gone to the midnight showing. And, saddest of all, it’s the first time I won’t get to see it with my kids.

More Harry Potter! Yes, I’m a big fan. And you can call me lazy. Or busy. Yeah, that’s it…busy. For real – I have waaaaayyyy too much stuff going on. So I’m keeping it simple…but still FUN!!! Today’s tease is for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I movie. There’s a new trailer!! Woot! And for Twilight: Eclipse, here’s a new trailer, too.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventure doesn’t officially open until June 18, but they held a special “soft opening” for on-site hotel guests only on Friday, May 28. And guess what? We just happened to stay on-site for the first time and got a sneak peek! Total. Awesomesauce. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see everything. Of our whole group, I was one of two of us who agreed to wait in line for the ride in Hogwarts castle, while everyone else ran around, checking things out. They only gave us two hours in that … Continue reading

Happy Friday! And there’s no better one than that before a long weekend! Woohoo! Actually, my weekend has been extra long. In fact, yesterday started mine and I’ve been in Orlando. While you’re reading this, I’m at Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventure and, hopefully, checking out the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!!! According to rumor, today is a soft opening. (Truth be told, I’m writing this Wednesday night to post on Friday with the magic [sadly, not HP magic] of technology. So, I’m not positive we’ll get to go through HP world, but if we do, I’ll tell you … Continue reading
