Before I start, I want to give two of my besties the biggest shout-out because they are always thinking about me, and I appreciate them so much. I got a package from them in the mail this week with a BTS magazine that Therese saw in the store and picked up for me and some of the cutest BTS stickers that BNice included in the package. It brightened my day so THANKS GUYS! I HELLA LOVE Y’ALL!
Here’s a JK hand kiss just for you guys! Haha.
Next week, I’m hosting a girl’s weekend here in Vegas for my nephew’s fiance. We’re doing our side’s bridal shower and everyone is coming to my house for it. We’ll be doing touristy things around town but our home base for the weekend will be my house and I’m thrilled to be hosting my first party with my fam. This weekend was for deep cleaning the shit out of my house. I took everything out of my pantry and washed all of the glass storage containers, I took the rice out of the giant rice jar and washed that. Did the same thing all around the house. I cleaned the base boards, I scrubbed my bathroom from top to bottom and made myself a little dizzy with all of the bleach fumes but everything is clean. This week is for washing all the towels, hand towels, blankets, and everything so that folks will have clean things to use. This coming weekend, Ingrid and I plan on starting our Family picture wall so I’m pretty excited about that. I’ll be sure to take pictures and share them afterward.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

I also decided that I was going to start a series re-watch of one of my all-time favorite shows, One Tree Hill and I think I’m going to start this week…right, Therese? Haha. I’m roping my bestie into watching it with me from L.A. and I don’t plan on binge-watching it so I won’t be rushing through this re-watch. I’ll watch a few episodes each week until I’m done. I was inspired to do a re-watch after listening to my three favorite gals, Hilarie Burton, Sophia Bush, and Bethany Joy Lenz talk about the show and giving us fans a behind the scenes look back into their experiences and their memories from shooting the show.
Their podcast is such a fun listen and I make sure to never miss an episode. If you guys are fans of One Tree Hill, you should check out their podcast called Drama Queens. I listen to them on Spotify but you can check them out on all sorts of places. I’ll definitely be blogging about my OTH re-watch so that’s something I’m looking forward to.
Thoughts on This Week’s Episodes from the Drama’s I’m Watching
Imitation (2021): I started this show this week on a whim, after seeing it while browsing Viki. I’m glad that I did because I’m enjoying it. I’m really liking the female lead and though I’m much more into the second male lead (but not with the main female lead, her friend from her girl group who has an obvious crush on the second lead). It’s an interesting look into the kpop world and man, all of that work and shit that these idols have to go through, only for them to lose their privacy and have their every waking minute scheduled – couldn’t be me but it makes me feel better to help my idols in any way that I can. By supporting them, streaming their music, and buying their merch.

This is how I looked through Edelweiss and Netgalley this week, trying to see if any new review copies looked interesting to me but I didn’t see anything that I absolutely had to read so I didn’t get anything. Hmm. Maybe next week.
