Kate and I are insanely into these books and movies and worship JK Rowling like the goddess she is. Little Miss Fancy-Pants-I-Wear-Jimmy-Choos-to-the-Grocery-Store Kate and her daughter McGee went to go see it in costume at midnight the night it opened. I'm waiting til next week when I get a sitter and the crowds have died down but I can not wait. Kate has been to Harry Potter world at Universal Studios. I have loaned out my HP library to all the neighbor kids but then I make them have really long conversations about it with me. About why certain spells only work on objects and not people and how Draco has it really hard and most people don't get that...
Bottom line? We are dorks and we own it.
Bearing that in mind you will understand why we both squealed like a couple of 11 year olds at a Bieber concert when we saw this picture this week:

I could look at this frigging picture all day long. These guys were photographed supporting Daniel Radcliffe at a performance of his play "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying". Oh my goodness! They are so awesome and they look so genuinely happy for him and to be together and they're all so grown up and cute and holy mother of mercy is that Neville Longbottom on the left??!!
Oh even yesser.
Let's take a little trip down memory lane:
and then there's this...
We have no idea why his transition from sweet, chubby little guy to total heartthrob makes us so happy but it just does. Maybe its because we love the character of Neville so much. Maybe because Neville epitomizes the idea that no matter how weak or chubby or ridiculed or discounted you are, the potential to do amazing things is always there if you're just brave enough to try. And this actor's transformation from boy to man just makes that magic seem all the more real. And we need all the magic we can get.
Rock on, Neville.
xo, Kate & Lydia
