Last night was AWESOME.
How much fun was it to watch Sean?!?
I bet his mama was proud!
And just so you all know, I don’t read any of the spoilers,
so I won’t know who is getting kicked off from show to show and you won’t have to worry about me spoiling anything for you!
Highlights for me:
*Seeing Shay, Andrew, Smith, Kensington, Lovie, and Papa Jay at the very beginning of the show and hearing the sweet things Sean had to say about his family.
(How precious were the kids cuddled up with Sean on the hammock?)
*Arie teaching Sean how to kiss. Hilarious.
*50 Shades of Grey doing her exit interview.
I bet Sean watched that and was just kicking himself for not giving her a rose.
Totally the kind of girl you want to bring home to mom.
*Katie – put on some shoes.
*Whoa 50 Shades chick. Down girl.
Know your audience.
*”So I gave her a rose. I hope that doesn’t create too much tension with the girls.”
You gave Tierra a rose, and then threw her into a lion’s den.
*Brooke. Stop it with your sexy voice and your growling.
*Lindsay, bless your tipsy little heart.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say you bet you wish you would have had a couple or 7 less
glasses of wine.
Hey, we’ve all been there.
Still, you are cute as a button and I like you.
A Couple of Quick Thoughts About The Cocktail Party
Southern Belle chick…seriously?
Selma brought the girls to the cocktail party.
Kacie B. saying several times that 50 Shades of Grey needs water was awesome.
The Bachelor Pad chick (can’t find her name or picture) scares me.
Okay…..on to the outfit….
For those of you regular Pinterest Told Me To readers, this is my first installment of
A Bachelorette Told Me To!
One day per week from now until the end of the season, I’m going to give Pinterest the day off.
Instead of looking to Pinterest for my outfit inspiration (like HERE, HERE, and HERE),
I’m going to look to one of Sean’s ladies for inspiration.
I didn’t want to create an evening gown look this week,
so I sifted through their promo headshots for an outfit for me copy.
these first 2 girls knew their audience (take a hint 50 Shades girl).
Tierra and and Kristy both knew that Sean is a Jesus Loving guy,
so they pulled out the big guns for their promo pics..
Love the humongo crosses.
Well played ladies. Well played.
Tierra is definitely one of my favs so far.
I would like to amend that last statement 30 shorts minutes after writing it.
I just watched scenes from the rest of the season, and it looks like I just might need to reserve my title of “fav” for somebody else.
Is she going to be one of those sweet girls that is really cray-cray?
I hope not…but it certainly looks that way.
The pickings were slim as far as exciting outfits to choose from.
Most girls were just wearing a tank top and jeans.
exhibit a, b, and c
So, here is Amanda’s look.
(I liked Amanda’s whole “akward silence” angle. Funny.)
And here is my interpretation.
Plaid Shirt: Gap
Bubble Necklace: Altar’d State, found HERE
(this bubble necklace is one of Altar’d State’s give back purchases!)
Black Boots: Ross
Watch: Michael Kors
Instead of linking to similar items above like I used to do, I’m going to start doing it with a picture collage like you see below. It doesn’t take me nearly as long to do, and I just think it’s kinda fun!
If you click on one of the below pictures, it will take you directly to the site for purchase.
If the exact same item is available, I will link to that item specifically.
However, most times the item in my outfit is no longer available, so I will link to similar items.
In the collage below (be sure you scroll up and down to see all the choices), I have several options to create different versions of the same look.
(sidenote: How ticked off are the girls that spent $118 on their J Crew Bubble Necklaces when they first came out? Who knew then that they would be EVERYWHERE and dirt cheap?!?)
So, my favorites so far (in no particular order)….
Ashlee, Lindsay, and Amanda
(Tierra was on that list for a hot minute.)
Told Me To!
Last week I made time to get to Nordstrom to get my Christmas present sized.
(Tip: the watch counter at Nordstrom will size your Michael Kors watch for free.)
I gotta say….I feel like such a baller wearing this watch.
It is so so pretty ifidosaysomyself.
Can’t wait to see what Sean and the ladies have in store for us next week.
Drama, Crazy, and Freaky are all going to come out to play.
Oh..and don’t forget to check out Shay’s blog for a little family insight and behind the scenes info (without any spoilers).
And if you need a recipe, check out Shay’s food blog HERE.
Today she has a recipe for chocolate chip pie! Yes, ma’m!
Okay…one more thing…just checked my e-mail and saw that for the next 24 hours you can get 30% off online at GAP, Old Navy, and Banana Republic!
I don’t know about you…but I know what that means for me…..

I’m going to be adding a little neon and some printed pants to my life for sure!
These are gonna in my cart fo sho.
I will also be starting my spring and summer shopping for the little fella that lives with me!
