Sophie wants one thing for Christmas-a little freedom from her overprotective parents. So when they decide to spend Christmas in South Louisiana with her very pregnant older sister, Sophie is looking forward to some much needed private (read: make-out) time with her long-term boyfriend, Griffin. Except it turns out that Griffin wants a little freedom from their relationship. Cue devastation.
Heartbroken, Sophie flees to her grandparents' house, where the rest of her boisterous extended family is gathered for the holiday. That's when her nonna devises a (not so) brilliant plan: Over the next ten days, Sophie will be set up on ten different blind dates by different family members. Like her sweet cousin Sara, who sets her up with a hot guy at an exclusive underground party. Or her crazy aunt Patrice, who signs Sophie up for a lead role in a living nativity. With a boy who barely reaches her shoulder. And a screaming baby.
When Griffin turns up unexpectedly and begs for a second chance, Sophie feels more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she's started to have feelings for someone else . . . Someone who is definitely not available.
This is going to be the worst Christmas break ever... or is it?
Christy’s Planned Friend Date for Kelly
Who needs romance when you have friends? Ok, maybe we will let Sophie find love in 10 Blind Dates and we will go on our friend dates.
First and foremost – this date is not going to be realistic for timeline. This is pretend. A wish. (pls)
2019-20 marks the 15th and final season of Supernatural. I’ve never befriended someone who is as into the show as me until I met Kelly. Because I don’t want to be in misery alone, I’m dragging her along with me.
After we both get off of planes in Vancouver, we are headed directly to the set of Supernatural. I’ve always wanted to visit. Hopefully we plan a day where Jensen, Dick, or Matt are directly because how cool would that be?
It’s just a quick tour though because we got plans – we have to be at VanCon, the Supernatural convention! We went together in 2018 but this time we are doing it B I G with gold tickets. And just about every photo opportunity because we need to memorialize this shit. Since this is a dream date, all of our favs are there – Osric, the Sheriffs, Gil…This con is doing it unusually big for us. We get chosen to sing during karaoke and Misha joins us for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
And clearly, during the autograph session, Misha thanks Kelly for being such a big fan and asks to take a selfie.
After our long and exhausting con day, we are having some mac n cheese delivered to watch the season finale. It’s just us with a giant screen and some cheesy carbs and ten boxes of tissues. It doesn’t matter how it ends because we are together for it.
Check out yesterday’s post to see the amazing date Kelly planned for me, and don’t forget to check out her instagram & my Instagram (and all the other dates!) for a chance to win an ARC of 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston!
