The Bachelorette Ep. 3 & 4

Happy Monday & Tuesday Bachelor Nation!

As always **spoiler alert**

This week we got a double dose of The Bachelorette, 4 full hours! And what a crazy four hours it has been! I finished filling out my Bachelorette bracket for the competition at my office on Monday, and I was pretty confident in it, until tonight’s rose ceremony and two-on-one date. (Gosh Chad, couldn’t you have hid the crazy for a few more episodes?!) I have Jordan winning it all – but who knows? My top 4 include Jordan, Robby, Luke and Chase. Anyway… back to the drama.

The Bachelorette: Ep. 2

Happy Memorial Day and Bachelorette Monday, Bachelor Nation!

The season premiere is always a whirlwind, between drunken bachelors and cheesy introductions, we don’t really start to get a good feel for the guys until episode two. So tonight’s episode was sure to be a bit more revealing.

***Spoiler Alert***

The Gal

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, JoJo is a bit hung-up on Ben. She brings him up multiple times in this episode. Get over it girlfriend, you’ve got a whole different group of guys here now.

The Guys

So first group date. Chad has a theory that it’s the B-list guys, and I kinda, sorta agree. In a major plot twist the actual firefighter won the firefighting challenge on the group date, so off Grant goes, to some one-on-one time with JoJo and a not so romantic kiss. Poor Wells was tortured throughout this date, after almost dying throughout the less intensive firefighter drill, he gets chosen for the more intensive firefighter drill… good thinking. But apparently JoJo likes men a little out of shape, so he gets the rose. He was so cute throughout it though I can’t blame her.

The Bachelorette: Ep. 1

The time has finally come ladies (and unabashed men)! The Bachelorette is back, and there’s finally a reason to look forward to Mondays again. I’ve seriously been counting down to the live-tweeting, yelling-at-the-tv, gossip-inducing drama of Monday nights and the season 12 premiere did not disappoint.

**Spoiler alert**

The Gal

Oh Jojo. I’ll admit, she was not my favorite last season. I was rooting for Becca, but I think I can get on Team Jojo this time around. She was so sweet to all the guys on night one, even the strange and slightly awkward ones. (Lookin’ at your Will.) And she seems genuinely ready to meet her husband.

The Guys

Upon first glance of the bachelors, I was not so impressed. But man, did the men bring it for episode one.

On My Radar

This week has been crazy, but so fun! It started off with a food truck festival downtown where my friend Morgan and I snacked on ice cream sandwiches (see below) and sausage-stuffed baguettes. Delicious! Then a jam-packed workweek included some spinning with coworkers for Bike to Work Week. I’m also getting ready for a wedding this weekend and I’ve been stressing over what to wear. I’m currently deciding between two dresses (this one and this one) I ordered offline from Nordstrom. What do you think? I’m still working on shoes and accessories for both and the wedding is Saturday – oops. Anyway here’s whats been on my radar this week.

On My Radar

This week flew by. I’ve had so much to do at work and at home but I’ve thankfully been getting a lot crossed off my to-do list. I’ve also been competing with my friends in two Fitbit “Workweek Hustle” challenges- a competition to see who can get the most steps during a typical work week. It has seriously motivated me to get up and walk around at work and go for extra long runs after work. Unfortunately I’m still not doing too hot. (My friends are more active than me apparently.) But I’m determined to not lose by too much. Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week…

These Shoes

I ordered these from J.Crew Factory online last week and they finally arrived. I’m obsessed. They’re the perfect glitzy addition to an otherwise boring summer outfit and they’re on serious sale. Originally $70 and only $34 right now. Go, Go. Go.
