For those who know me well, you will not be surprised that I was RIDICULOUSLY excited for the new Harry Potter movie to come out, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. Unfortunately this year I had to deviate from my normal course of going to the midnight showing and dressing up with all of the other Harry Potter crazies. I had a ton of schoolwork and work due that week, so there was no way I was going to make it. However, I was able to lend some of my Harry Potter gear to both my friend Halie and BIL Bryce. Glad to spread to Harry cheer any way I possibly can!
Anywho, Brad and I were able to go see HP7 the Monday before Thanksgiving. We went to this random theater up in Sandy since we were picking up my mom from the airport later that night, which turned out to be THE GREATEST IDEA EVER. We arrived right before the previews started because we got stuck in some traffic, and I was worried that we would have horrible seats. However, I think we picked an obscure enough location because there were only about ten people there and we had awesome seats! I love me some Harry Potter. Even though we couldn't go the first night, I still had to dress up of course!
So happy to get good seats! Also, I was happy that this film actually FOLLOWED the Harry Potter book. Most of the past movies have been quite upsetting to me and have not really lived up to my expectations. This movie, however, was a pleasant surprise, and I am so excited for the next installment! Long live Harry!
We also went to a Jurgensmeier Family Reunion this past month. We met up at a church house in Bountiful and had tons of fun playing minute to win it games and eating food. My team even won first place, gift cards to Dairy Queen! It was fun getting to spend some time with the Jurgensmeier's
We have really been having a great Fall semester. I thought it would be terrible with all of my difficult classes and work, but it has actually been really rewarding and fun. We love our new apartment, our new ward, and our second year of marriage!
Marianne and Brad
P.S. Sorry for the reposting of my freshman ward reunion. Oops!
