I finally saw the last Harry Potter movie the other night.
I think I cried at least seventeen times while I was watching it.
And then when it was over and we got home I was all wanting to talk about how special it was and how my heart was hurting but my husband was all, “I’m confused…wasn’t that EXACTLY the same as the LAST Harry Potter movie we saw?”
And I was like, “seriously, you aren’t even human. It was a cinematic masterpiece. I will be completely devastated for at least the next hundred years. It’s OVER. OVER!!”
Then my husband did that thing where he pretends to listen to me but I can tell that he really isn’t. He’s probably thinking about survival skills, or tool boxes or whatever section of the brain men retreat to when they don’t know how to deal with a COMPLETELY REASONABLE WOMAN.
I realize that Harry Potter and all that magic wizardey stuff isn’t for everyone, but as a mom, I can assure you that magic really does have it’s place in life.
Just ask my son, who thinks that a wizard lives in our fax machine and the ATM works by scanning your fingertips to see how cool you are and awards money accordingly.
Seriously, so convenient. I mean…try explaining money and electronic debits and how paper information is scanned and travels by wire to a 6 year old.
Or me, for that matter because honestly I still don’t understand it
Magic is such a simpler way of explaining things. Funner too.
Anyways, right now, I really wish I WAS magic because America is on fire. Like, the hot kind of fire. It’s 108 here and completely miserable.
Soooo….I made milkshakes. Want one?
1/2 cup milk
2 TBS funfetti or plain white cake mix
1/4 cup canned vanilla frosting
1 cup vanilla ice cream
Sprinkles and whipped cream, for garnish
Layer ingredients in your blender as listed above (minus the sprinkles and whipped cream). Blend until frothy and well mixed. Pour into a glass and garnish with whipped cream and sprinkles.
Makes 1 large or 2 small shakes.
Want to make the cute little cupcakes to go on top? They are super easy and require NO baking!! You can find the tutorial HERE on a previous post.
If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying and mourning the end of the Harry Potter series.
But on a good note, I have a new celebrity crush–Neville Longbottom!! Who knew?!
Have a wonderful Monday full of Magic and Milkshakes!!
