The Bachelor

It just irriates me to no end they keep calling the epsiode before the finale The Women Tell All, because they DO NOT TELL ALL. Eighty percent of them don't even speak! And the twenty percent that do speak, don't say anything "telling." The only part that made last night's episode worth watching was the recap of Natalie's "I love bears" moment – that will never get old for me. 

Now, I may be admitting more than I should here – but since I don't apologize for being a Bachelor junkie I might as well spill it: I've been reading the rumors about how this season ends. If it is true, then I have no words – other than maybe Jason Mesnick will replace Brad Womack as the most villainous Bachelor History.

The Bachelor

Dear Jason,

Don't ever play poker for high stakes.

I love when our friends get puppies, and I love even more when they rescue one! Kristin and Christophe (our buddies) got Finn from the Riverside Animal Shelter – or the animal shelter on Riverside, I can't remember which. He is one of seven puppies that were left behind at the shelter (it's okay, all of them got good homes!). Finn has a great little personality and he is SO crazy cute, I almost couldn't take it. It started to rain soon after I busted out the camera, so I'll be visiting Finn again soon for a more complete shoot. And even more after that!

Dear Kristin and Christophe, 

Please don't be annoyed with me for showing up at your house with my camera every chance I get.

The Bachelor

Still no Deanna in what I am calling The most boring Bachelor season in Bachelor history. It's very clear why we must wait so long for her appearance.... To keep us watching. I do however have to give it up to The Temple Priestess and her mother The Adult Indigo for making this episode more tolerable. Thank you!

The highlight for me was when my co-watcher James (who is a Bachelor newbie) turned to me and asked in all seriousness; " In all the Bachelor seasons, do people just sit around and talk about nothing even though they are under the impression there are talking about something?" I replied by explaining this is how all girls get to know their "potential future husbands".  

I know Jason kept Kappa Kappa Molly, but I do believe Melissa has this in the bag. Nitty, you wanna bet a burger on it?

Me and My Crew

Sometimes I drive them to drink, but I love my crew. Even though I'm the one taking the pictures, I'm really just part of a team - A team of incredibly hard working, kind, patient, genuine, loyal, and fun people.

I don't care about Deanna's appearance anymore. It's taking way too long.

On The Chalkboard

I came home from the gym and saw this. What can I say? It's my husband's chalkboard too! He loves bikes. I think it's amazing:
