Bachelorette Musings + Honeymooning

If you're not a Bachelorette fan - feel free to scroll to the second portion of this post!! I've kept pretty mum on The Bachelorette this season, mostly because I didn't want to admit how invested I was! After the disaster that was Juan Pablo last season, I was just not ready to watch every Monday and be disappointed again. But ABC did it again and I was watching the finale!! How they suck me in for 3 hours on a Monday night is beyond me!! (please tell me I was not alone) It's probably because I trust Chris Harrison that "It's something I can't miss!" But this time he was right!! 
{Do Not Read if you haven't watched and plan to watch!!}
I had Josh M. picked from the first night in the limo - seriously you can check my text messages with Amanda & Christina!! He just seemed like the perfect fit for her from the start and neither one of them would have to move or compromise anything to start because they already live in the same city!! 
Nick was a little too intense throughout the whole process...but he seemed genuine with his feelings!   Watching the after show - I couldn't help but be sorry for him. I also feel bad for his future wife - since he basically said he'll always wonder what could have been!! Doesn't bode well for him... 
I'm not sure we were ready for the bombshell that Nick dropped on us  - we all know what happens in the fantasy suite - but he went there and then twitter exploded!! 
I definitely think Andi is one of the prettiest bachelorette's they have had on the show even though when she says "Stop It" - I all but throw my remote at the TV!  I find it really admirable she didn't make Nick go through the proposal - so at least he didn't have that embarrassment! As always - I'm a sucker for a love story and hope she and Josh make it!! 
Switching gears a bit - I wanted to mention that my contributor post is live on Wedding Party's blog  - you can check it out here! This month after taking our own vacation as an anniversary trip for our first year of marriage - I thought of so many other wonderful honeymoon and just vacation destinations for couples!! If you have a chance to stop by - I'd be so happy to hear your thoughts!! 

P.S. Don't forget to enter for your chance to win a pair of Tieks!!

  4. I was pretty much laughing during the entire Bachelorette show last night. I think Nick is unstable and has some emotional issues ... plus, I was hoping Josh would come out and deck him after his comment to Andi about what they did in the fantasy suite. That was such a low blow! I never liked him, so that just kind of solidified it for me. He clearly isn't a gentleman. I had Josh picked from the beginning, too - I really like him, but they were a bit too gushy for me during the live show last night!

  5. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I actually like Nick and felt bad for him last night! However, I think Josh is a better match for Andi and they actually seemed genuinely in love...perhaps it will be another (rare!) Bachelor success story!

  6. Loveeee the Bachelorette!! I was so thankful she picked Josh & I thought it was admirable to save Nick the heartache of proposing! Can't wait to continue to follow their journey- they're gonna have some pretty babies lol

  7. Haha I totally didn't watch it but I agree, she is gorgeous! And loving that tweet saying he's going through a Taylor Swift-like range of emotions LOL! Too funny!

  10. I have only caught a few episodes this season and thought Josh was a good match for her just from those few I watched. I only watched up to the proposal last night, which seemed a little too rehearsed. It was still cute though and I'm happy for them. I never liked Nick!! I can't believe he called her out!

  11. Oh haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, go you! Way to pick the winner :)!

  12. I didn't watch but I kind of liked reading about it through everyone's blogging haha. Its like watching it, but without getting invested :) thats awesome that they are from the same city, i always wondered how that would go down ;)

  13. I seriously felt so incredibly bad for Nick. I just wanted someone to step in and just stop everything. My top guys were Chris the farmer and Marcus, I really hope one of them is the next bachelor. I was never a huge fan of Nick, he seemed like a little kid but I felt so incredibly bad for him.

  14. oh I loved your post over there about honeymoons but it wanted me to sign into FB to comment, boo. But now I want to go on another honeymoon ;)

  15. I about died last night during the ATFR when he said that... I texted Amanda and was like did that just happen!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I loved Josh but I totally felt like they were reciting a script last night during the proposal! I haven't watched the After the Final Rose show but I hear I'm in for some craziness!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I couldn't believe he said that on national television either!! I agree with Andi - totally below the belt. However, I do agree that she probably shouldn't have slept with him. I mean she knew at that point who she was picking.
    I read Reality Steve so I knew the ending, but it still sucks me in!

  18. Call me cray cray but she should not have slept with him. POOR GUY!! He had a total Taylor Swift moment for sure.

  20. ughh I'm def glad she picked Josh over creepy Nick but I am so ready for the hot mess express AKA Bachelor in Paradise! ha! Tell me you'll be tweeting/watching too!

  21. I read the post yesterday, great job!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Holy Cow - that was the BEST after the rose finale ever :)
    I don't care for Andi so I'm just glad Farmer Chris got out of it unscathed & fingers crossed he's the next Bachelor!!!
    Josh is one good looking man though!!!

  23. Did you see the video of Nick on Realitysteve.com??? he's so creepy. he's just too much.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have to admit that I missed most of this season but I think the guy she picked is super cute and looked like a good match. I think the fact that they live in the same city might actually help them last....we'll see!

  25. Had to make the scroll down but I'm off to your guest post ;)

  29. I am so happy she picked Josh... I think they will be a great fit. Not a fan of Nick - to me, he seems insecure and really young (even though he is older than Josh)!

    They will make beautiful babies!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I watched too! You know what's funny?! When I first saw Andi on ATFR, I thought she looked a lot like you...something about her hair! :) She's beautiful so that's a compliment!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I could not believe that Nick said what he did about the fantasy suite. I was in complete shock and pretty pissed too. That was totally below the belt. But Andi was also a little cold towards him and that was awful to watch too. Im heading over to check out your honeymoon guide!

  33. I knew it would be Josh!! He was my favorite, athlete or not. It's kind of annoying though how much he talks about baseball. Ryan looked up his stats and apparently he wasn't that good and was on a minor league team. Oh well- they still look good together. Ps. can't believe they didn't announce the bachelor!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. hahah i love your opening sentence! i wasn't sure if i would watch andi's season, it was fine at the beginning but i was pretty annoyed with her by the end of it. i can't watch for bachelor in paradise!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's the Fantasy Suite, so we know...but I mean really? Really? Note to Nick: some things you keep to yourself. It just made him look kind of pathetic. But this is spot-on. Josh was my pick from the beginning too -- and they are just beautiful together! xo!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am so glad she picked Josh! Nick just rubbed me the wrong way... and what a lowbrow move to drop that bomb on tv! Bitter betty much! I just want to know who the next Bachelor is going to be now!

  37. Juan Pablo totally ruined this franchise for me. :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. I couldn’t believe that Nick called her out!! Such a sore loser.... I love her and Josh together!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nick was SO RUDE to divulge that to America. I'm proud of the way Andi handled it though! She definitely scored the cuter boy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I was nervous about getting sucked in again after Juan Pablo's disaster of a season.. I'm soooo happy this one had a totally different ending! Andi and Josh seem perfect for each other and the fact that they both live in the same city will give them a bigger chance of making it! Nick lives in Chicago and my friend ran into him at the bar and said he was making out with like 3 girls that night so I think he's doing okay!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my gosh! Your killing me!!! I NEED to know more! I'm staying at our camper this week and I didn't get to watch it! And my dumbass forgot to DVR it at home! AhhhH! I'm so glad that she didn't pick Nick though! :) Her and Josh are certainly going to make some beautiful babies! :)

  42. ahh i finally watched the finale last night and had only seen a few other episodes but agree with all that you said! the taylor swift range of emotions is hilarious and so true. you look like andi to me!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  43. So glad this finale wasn't another train wreck! I seriously couldn't have taken one more "Staaaap it" though! Girls got to get a new saying!
