On my Pintrest I have a section called The Funnies, and I love the things I've pinned in there so much, that every Friday, I'm going to do a Friday Funny. Starting now.
And, to get us all headed in the right direction, I'm doing three of them today.
You're a liar if you don't admit to doing some variation of the red part while singing.....
Too awesome for words..... the Harry Potter lover in me swoons.
I may or may not have posted this one already, but doesn't it just make you laugh?
Hope you liked The Funnies.

There are a lot of things that make me happy.
These photos are some of those things, for a few reasons.
I NEED a photo like this, I for sure have enough books, I just need a volunteer to take the photo.
I love anything beautiful.
Growing up in Utah, tatoos are largely looked upon as unattractive, sinful, etc.
But I love them (most of them, I still don't understand why people get Winnie the Pooh... so awkward)
and I think this one is extraordinary.
New Teen Fiction novels at Barnes and Noble.
I just found a bn gift card I somehow overlooked.
If you have any book suggestions send them my way.
Decorating my basement right now, and being hugely inspired by photos like this one.

I have a list of places I would like to see in my lifetime.
Some of them make sense - like journeying to the place my ancestors originated from, places of historical value - like Pearl Harbor or Stonehenge.
And others are on the list out of a simple desire to see some place beautiful, or fantastic in some way.
This is one of thost places.
It's The Dark Hedges.
They are in Antrim - Northern Ireland.
A beautiful collection of 300+ year old Beech Trees.
They have grown into a tunnel that spans the length of a road.
I want to visit.
Stand under the boughs, watch the sunlight fade.
Ride slowly below the branches on a vintage bike with a bell.
Just to see it. To be in a place that looks as though it were created for a Grimm Fairytale.
Because, isn't it just wonderful?

How lucky can a girl get?
One of my favorite quotes from Tolkien was made into a leather statement cuff.
I think I might.
I ordered this lovely, fingers crossed it arrives on my doorstep soon.
"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king."

I'm not lying when I said that July 15th was the happiest and saddest day of my life.
It was (dramatically, I know) the end of a huge chapter in my life.
The last release date of Harry Potter.
I went to the book release parties, dressed up, rode brooms,
and tried to kiss boys dressed up like dementors.
I had my tea leaves read, smooshed a fake Hagrid belly,
and wished that I had a wand of my own.
And nothing was more perfect than Ron Weasley - in print and on screen, what a perfect character match.
I waited in line next to these boys.
Voldemort, Draco, Me, Hermione, Professor Lupin, and Harry Potter.
Hermione was by far my favorite. I HAD to get a picture.
The boy had BOOBS, a wig (but it was black, lol, he did try), he shaved his legs, wore a skirt.
But the best part?
Voldemort & Hermione's tatoos.
I mean COME ON. How much more creative can you get?
I was sad to see the movie end, knowing that it was the last, that I didn't have another one to put in my calendar. No more book releases (come on JK Rowling.... another series please....) no more parties.
Unless I do one of my own....
