So lets be honest, Matthew and I are really into Harry Potter! We were both so pumped for this last book to come out and we have already seen the 5th movie! Actually we watched the Harry Potter movies 1-4 during the week when Jenna was here and then on the weekend went and saw the 5th one! We didn't want to miss out on the excitment of the 7th booking coming out so on Friday we went at midnight to Borders to get our preordered copy! Matthew went early Friday morning to get a ticket to hold our place in line. We we arrived about 12:15am it was so packed!! I couldn't believe how many people were there! It was so fun though. Kids were all over the place dressed up as different characters. It was so funny when the first couple of peolple got their books they held it up really high and everyone in the store starting clapping and cheering! I saw a couple of people I knew like Chris Jones and his wife and a couple of other people from BYU. We stood in line for about an hour before we got our copy. On the way home, I drove while Matthew read the first chapter out loud. Then while I went to bed he proceeded to stay up until 3:30 reading! So neither of us are done with it but when I came home from work today I was going to read until I saw that Matthew had taken the book up to campus with him today!

For the first time in a long time all 4 of us roomies were in Utah at the same time (me, Melissa, Jenna, Laura.) So of course we had to go out to lunch. We went to this really cute place called Zupas. Its so yummy! You walk in there and it is filled with groups of girls! Its the perfect little girls-out-to-lunch place. It was so nice to catch up with everyone. I think we sat there for about 2 1/2 hours just talking! Jenna was in town that week because we both had new teacher induction. I am getting really excited to teach but nervous as well. All summer I have been thinking that I still have a while before school starts but really now I only have 3 weeks to get everything ready! Jenna stayed with me and it was so fun to be together again. Matthew said he could never understand anything we were saying to each other cause we never really have to finish our thoughts to get what we are saying in our conversations! It was fun to see her growing belly! She's going to be a mommy! Well starting inAugust all four of us will be in Utah again so we will have to have more lunch outings to Zupas!
