Bachelor Recap & Other Things

I don't think I could have asked for more of a trainwreck for the first episode of The Bachelor.  More than one girl had crazy eyes, more than one girl was a hot drunk mess, more than one girl decided she was the best girl for Farmer Chris, only one girl got a make out (I'm sorry, has that happened on night one before?  Uh woah).

Highlights:
| Amanda's CRAZY eyes! "My mom told me not embarrass her on national television!" Womp, womp. | 
| Ashley S. and her onion/pomegranate (also had crazy eyes) and trying gimmicks.  Oh dear, God.  I like her so much because she makes everything awkward! | 
| The hot mess that is Tara - the sport fishing enthusiast.  I called that - and I called him keeping her.  Chris Soules is a midwestern farmer.  Sometimes they like girls like that.  I loved that she couldn't even stand.  You go, girl.  I will say, everyone hated her entrance, but I will give her props for it - it's probably why she's still around! | 
| Kelsey turned out to be awesome.  However, she's a 28-year old widow.  THAT POOR GIRL.  I can't even... that's awful!  How am I supposed to handle this? | 
| Make out seen around the world - Chris made out with his first impression rose recipient, Britt.  While I like her, I don't LOVE her yet, and wasn't really into her crying at first sight experience.  She really needs to pull herself together! | 

Other Things

| GIRLS returns tonight - I'm so excited!  I am rewatching the series today and looking back on Season 1, I totally remember why I fell in love with this show.  It has taken a turn that I haven't loved, but I've stayed with it and I have high hopes for this season.  To all you haters, take it from Shosh: | 

| One of the few good things about the awful winter is being able to eat soup all the time.  Tonight I'm making this mac & cheese soup (whatttt you can do that?) recipe. | 

| You know you are getting old when you put "pillows" on a must have list.  I have pillows for my bed, obviously, but never thought about pillows for guests.  UGH!  I want to be the perfect hostess and there I go not having pillows!  Solved that issue, but wow.  Who knew I'd be buying extra pillows. | 

| I'm reading Empty Mansions right now, which was a Christmas gift from the boyfriend last Christmas, and I'm so angry at myself for not reading it until now.  If you haven't heard of it, it's about a 100-year old heiress who lived her last twenty years in a hospital instead of her stately mansions. | 

| The boyfriend & I will be celebrating 3 years together over Valentine's Day weekend (yes, he's the weirdo who asked a girl out on Valentine's Day) and we are thinking of taking a long weekend to enjoy a city together.  We're debating where to go - quick trip so not west of the Mississippi, unfortunately - and it will be winter.  So far we've thought about Pittsburgh, Philly, Richmond, or DC (two of which we've done, just never without visiting friends).  Any suggestions?  PS - NYC is out. |

    1. It was pretty cute... he had been planning on asking me out on a date but wasn't sure if I had a boyfriend or not, so he asked me what my plans were on that day to see if I was available or not. Too funny! And if you do watch Girls, I highly suggest starting from the beginning. Season 1 was amazing, Season 2 was ok, did not love Season 3 - and a lot of fans of the show at the beginning agree with me. Last night's episode was pretty good... Shoshanna didn't have as much of a place as I would have preferred but still fairly decent. However - it's on HBO so know there are some PRETTY scandalous moments.

  4. Wow - there's a lot of awkward faces on this season's Bachelor! LoL! I hope you and your boyfriend have a wonderful trip wherever you decide to go. Each of those cities has awesome things to see. This time of year, I'd probably vote for Richmond since it's least likely to have bitter cold winter weather ;) haha. But all of those places are great cities to explore!
    Warmest Regards,

    1. Haha Richmond is winning only because it's a city we both have never really explored before. I hate the cold! It ruins everything. Lol.

    1. It's so intriguing - especially because it's a true story and we've never heard of her or her father (at one point one of the richest men in America). And I definitely will - I'm still laughing from last night's episode!

    1. Oh my gosh - you did?! That's too funny! I'm sure she's a very nice girl. Very unfortunate she didn't know that her eye contact was so intense on television.

    1. Oh that's awesome! I think it's my number one choice, but I think the boy's number one is DC - if we decide on Pitt you will definitely be hearing from me :)

  21. Awww Sarah!! That is beyond cute!! He's definitely a keeper!! Hahaha!!! So happy for you!! <3 And yess, like you suggested, I will definitely start from the 1st season. Usually the pilot seasons aren't as fun, but since you're saying that it's better than 2nd and 3rd, I will definitely be giving it a go! :D <3 And hope you're doing well so far, dear! xoxo

  24. My boyfriend and I are heading out of town for Valentine's Day weekend, as well! We're going to Austin. For the East Coast, I'd say my vote is for DC. ;)

    Always, Anita

  25. Enjoyed the recap hahaa! I've always wanted to recap the show, but just can't muster enough energy esp because there were so many eye-rolling moments! I like Kelsey, too; with Britt & Whitney as my other faves (despite her voice).
