Game of Thrones Premiere & Cheese Board Debut

Who watched the GOT season 8 premiere Sunday night?! I was so excited for it, and the episode didn’t disappoint. I watched the season 7 finale right before, and I forgot just how action packed it was. Watching that made me so pumped for season 8. I can’t wait to find out who ends up on the iron throne, but I’m sad that some of my favorite characters could face death! ):

Anyway, I had a few friends over for the premiere, so naturally as an entertainer and someone who just purchased a new cheese board, I had to make up a cheese plate for the watch party.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I picked up this marble cheese board with a golden pineapple detail about a week ago. The board came in the mail and I immediately felt the need to buy a bunch of cheese and invite people over, then I realized that the GOT premiere was the perfect time to break out both!

I picked up most of the items from good ole Trader Joe’s (there is one right around the corner from my office, and it’s never too packed, truly a blessing). I got some Cotswolds cheese, double cream gouda, herbed goat cheese, and Dubliner cheddar. For fun other cheese plate items, I used truffle marcona almonds, bread and butter pickles, pita crisps, cornbread crackers (all from Trader Joe’s),ย shelled pistachios, and some cucumber and orange pepper cut up.

It was all very delicious and extremely filling! I would definitely recommend getting and making a cheese plate for entertaining, as it was the highlight of the night (other than the episode, obviously).

Happy eating! xx

My vote for the next Bachelorette…

cast1

The first season of the franchise I actually watched was JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette. After that, I was hooked on all of the shows! I feel like I personally prefer The Bachelorette, since the last few Bachelors have been sort of a “miss” in my mind (minus Colton, but he’s also SOMETHING else…).

Some of the girls on this season were good for drama, however didn’t strike me as good Bachelorette material. A lot of them were just… boring. The younger contestants also just seem like they are there for the Instagram followers and not “the right reasons.” Although, after her run on the season played out, Hannah B. really strikes me as a good pick for the next Bachelorette. She was a little crazy, but also funny and relatable. I think it was mature that her and Caelynn put aside their differences and remained civil.

Hannah seemed very level-headed and not petty at the Women Tell All. Her overall positivity made me think that she would make a good, interesting Bachelorette over some of the other contestants, EVEN though she is young.

I am open to other contestants from Colton’s season (or otherwise,) so let me know who should be the next Bachelorette!
