Happy Monday, readers!
It’s my first Monday back at school after my second knee injury, and it’s going much smoother than I expected. During that week home I came up with a ton of ideas for “Sparkle and Shine,” so be excited readers – great things are coming your way!
But I don’t want to give away too much detail, so I’m just going to jump right into this week’s Monday Musts!
1. The Bling Ring
So let’s be honest, I spent my week home icing my knee and sitting in bed watching anything and everything I could On Demand. One of the movies that immediately caught my eye was called “The Bling Ring.” Based on real events, a group of fame obsessed L.A. teens broke into celebrity homes to steal their clothes, jewelry, money, any anything else that could get their hands on to try to try and live the lavish celeb lifestyle. Something about the plot had me drawn in immediately. Though I personally would have directed the movie differently, I still very much it. I felt dragged in “The Bling Ring” is also the next book on my reading list!
2. Duck Dynasty
So another one of the shows that I ended up addicted to while spending this week at home was Duck Dynasty. It’s one of my mom’s favorite shows (hi, mom!), so I figured I would finally give it a chance and watch it. It was so worth it. I don’t think I had laughed harder at any other television show, thanks to Uncle Si. The show, which revolves around the million-dollar Robertson family, known for the company “Duck Commander,” which is family’s duck calling business. The show, which follows the family through their everyday lives, provides good smiles and laughs for anyone. At this point, there is some days that I feel like I only stay sane from watching “Duck Dynasty” and hearing a “hey” from Uncle Si.
3. I got my Little Diamond Sister, Amber!
So I saved the best news for last! My school’s Alpha Delta Pi chapter had big diamond/little diamond reveal this past weekend, so I wanted to introduce you all to my little diamond – Amber! I drove three hours to surprise her for the reveal – and it worked! Yay! For only knowing each other for such a short amount of time, we are already sooo close. I’m so excited to continue making college memories with her as my little diamond! (And shout out to my amazing big diamond, Katherine, for standing in for me and helping me surprise her!) I am so thankful to have them both in my life – when I came back to school, I found a get well note with my favorite candy and a celebrity gossip mag on my bed from these two! Thanks for being the best ever, you two! (And I know you’re having a stressful day, Amber, so I hope this brightens your day a little!)
And now I’m off to my media history class to continue on with the craziness of my first day back to school! Enjoy the rest of your Monday, readers!
