This past weekend, I got to combine two of my favorite things... One Tree Hill and my best guy friend!
Me and M - Halloween 1988.
Let me explain. M and I have known each other since we were in diapers. He was literally my first friend and after all this time, we're still super close and know each other to a tee. He just so happens to reside in the small North Carolina town of Wilmington - where Dawson's Creek was filmed, where One Tree Hill is taped, and where countless movies have been made. You know of my love for Bethenny, but have we ever discussed my insane girl crush on Sophia Bush?!
I totally nominated her for my sorority's Alumnae Achievement Award (yes, we're sisters!) and will continue to until they honor her with it. If you're a fan like me, you should check out her blog. She is so passionate and so much like Brooke Davis. It's kind of a chicken and egg situation - I'm not sure which came first, my adoration for her or for the show. As both a writer and an NBA fanatic, I love the idea that a boy stepping onto a basketball court changed so many lives. What a story line. (And yes, I cried when Nathan FINALLY got called up to the Charlotte Bobcats!)
Sadly, I didn't run into B. Davis, but I did get to see some of the One Tree Hill sets.
The River Court - where it all began...
On the very same bleachers that Sophia has sat on... swoon!
Clothes Over Bros and... Karen's Cafe? Here's hoping for flashbacks in the upcoming season!
I so enjoyed my time in Wilmington... it is such a charming Southern town. I hope I'm able to return someday!
