“The Bachelor” Finale Essentials

I admit it, I’ve been watching “The Bachelor” since my sophomore year in college (2002). I’ve watched almost every single season, I only missed the season with this guy (did anyone watch that one?) I’m a complete Bachelor and Bachelorette junkie. I even watch “The Bachelor Pad” and read the spoilers online.

The truth is I actually like Mondays when The Bachelor is on *gasp* so last nights finale was bittersweet for me. Back to boring, depressing, ‘I have five whole days until the weekend starts’ Monday. I said goodbye to my favorite show last night with my girlfriends and our “girls night in” essentials.

Cupcakes! Coconut, Banana, and Guinness Irish Creme for St. Patty’s day. YUM.  Maggie picked them up for us from Hello Cupcake. They were better than Red Velvet or any other cupcake shop I have tasted so far. They weren’t giant gobs of sugar with more sugar frosting. We are thinking of a “cupcake hop.” There are so many cupcake places in the area why not have a cupcake tasting event? P.S. Maggie put out carrot sticks in case we wanted those instead… she’s so funny.

We did our nails! I recently found my long lost friend the “white pencil” With light pink polish (I used Essie Happily Ever After) and a white pencil under your nails you have a perfectly natural (and fail proof) French manicure.

The regal and girlie as can be Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Scarlett O’Hara was there to sit on our laps and love us. (I can’t wait for her and Honey’s play date. I hope Honey behaves, she likes to rough house with the boys and might be too wild for sweet Scarlett).

And of course we had each other to talk about the clothes (Emily’s awful final gown!),the tears and if Brad and Emily will really work out. This is Maggie. Check out her blog here, it’s one of my favorites!

Now starts The Bachelorette countdown. What do you think of Ashley H as the new Bachelorette? May 23rd is when Mondays will be bearable again.

    I LOVE the bachelor!
    I watched it with my husband, who loves it just as much as me!

    I really don’t like Ashley H… I’m sad they picked her.
    oh well!
    I’m still excited to watch the bachelorette!

    My boyfriend says he only watches it with me to make me happy… well last night I came home and he was watching it on DVR! He secretly likes it too I know it! 🙂

    I like Ashley H’s new makeover. I think I would have been more interested in watching Chantal though.

    Huge bachelor fans here too! I really hope Emily & Brad work out- what a weird after the final rose! And so not excited about Ashley H.! I’ll still probably watch though 😉

    I may not be a huge Bachelor fan, but any excuse to hang with my girlies and watch reality- I AM IN!

    I need to get that white pencil ASAP.

    I’m addicted to the bachelor as well. I’m so upset that he picked Emily, their whole relationship looked so fake & corny. I knew they weren’t going to work out, you can tell she’s not really into him. I just didn’t like either one of them lol. So I’m ready for Bachelorette & Bachelor Pad. I thinks Ashley will be a good bachelorette 🙂
