Hey, I get it.
I’m not entirely sure I’m a Bachelor person anymore…but the people want the recaps…..so the recaps you will get!
There is still something here for you today even if you aren’t watching The Bachelor.
Scroll down to the bottom of the post for a little surprise from Goodnight Macaroon as well as some awesome beauty deals from Nordstrom!
Ooooh! And I have a link for an Erin Condren gift card giveaway!
Also, if you are a HARD CORE Bachelor person and you only pop over to this blog once a week, I get that too! However, you really need to click HERE. It gives you a peek into quite possibly the favorite thing I do on this blog. 🙂
HUHWHAN PABLO RECAP: EPISODE TRES
We have to talk about this.
WHERE WERE YOU LAST WEEK HARRISON?
I missed you so!
We missed you.
AMERICA missed you.
One things for sure, you came back in a BIG way.
Rocking the color blocking.
Cassandra gets the first 1:1.
The date card says “Love is a wild ride.”
They get in a funny looking car, drive down a beachy rode, and then drive straight into the ocean.
Surprise! It’s a water car!
And all I can think is
“You’re going way to fast Huhwhan!” and “Where are the life jackets Huhwhan?”
and “You both are single parents Huhwhan! SLOW DOWN and THINK ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN AT HOME! DON’T ORPHAN YOUR CHILDREN AT HOME HUHWHAN!”
That’s just a tiny little peek into my mind.
The worry gene comes from my mom. Thanks mom.
I’m just a big ol’ mess of fun.
They head back to his house for dinner, and Huhwhan says, and I quote,
“all I want to do is something that makes her feel more comfortable.”
And it seems as if he decides the best way to facilitate that comfort is to GRIND all up on
Cassandra and her floral jeggings.
Um, no thank you.
Not a fan of the grinding loverboy.
And I’m not sure if you heard her say this, but Cassandra hasn’t had a first date in over 3 years.
Oh, you heard that?
Oh, maybe it was because she said it 74,362 times.
And listen, I’m not really a numbers person, so you do the math.
They look at pics of each others kids and one thing becomes SUPER clear to me.
I COULD NOT be in a room with Huhwhan AND a baby at the same time.
He likes to baby talk not pictures of babies, his own kid (who I think is like 6), AND to any girls that have had or are thinking about having a baby.
I’m guessing his baby talk would be OUT OF CONTROL with a real life baby.
He likes her, and she gets a rose.
The next date card arrives.
It’s a group date with 10 girls, and it says “Let’s Kick It”, so we are guessing soccer will be involved.
Or is it futbol?
One of the girls on the date is Kelly. The Dog Lover.
Like it literally still says “Dog Lover” under her.
I thought it said “Dog Lover” the fist night because her dog was with her. But now we are 3 episodes in, and it still says “Dog Lover?” Is this really what best defines her?
If so, Kelly needs to get a job. OR AT THE VERY LEAST another hobby.
They practice some and then divide into teams.
It’s BLUE vs. RED.
And is it me, or are you kind of scared of the red team too?
And to be honest, I’m a little disappointed. I was hoping No Shoes McGee was going to suggest to play shirts vs. skins, but no such luck.
I guess even the exhibitionist knows that running topless isn’t a good look.
Which makes me think of “bad naked”.
So I googled “bad naked” in hopes of finding the picture of Jerry belt sanding, trying to prove to his girlfriend that being naked wasn’t always a good look.
No pic of Jerry with the belt sander to be found, but I did find this screen shot.
And now I have to share with you possibly the most important information I’ve ever shared with you.
I beg of you.
Lean in and listen.
NEVER EVER EVER google search “bad naked”.
You will want to wash your eyeballs out with soap.
Cocktail party time.
Not much happens.
He makes out with one girl behind a fast food stand.
And then he and the opera sing head down to the soccer field to sit on a blanket.
And then y’all….I’m not sure what happened next.
However, I am unsure what it actually was.
My hubby looked at me and said “WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON HERE?”
I wasn’t sure.
I do know this, I had to look away from the screen and I was so confused that
I’m pretty sure my eyebrow went all Tierra on me.
However, in an effort to figure out what had just transpired, we did run it back to watch it again.
Chelsea gets the other 1:1 date and the card says “Trust me”.
Huhwhan picks her up and they rock out to Venezuelan music during the car ride.
Chelsea plays the air maracas, and for some reason it makes me like her more.
I’ve learned two things about myself so far this episode:
Not a fan of the grinding.
Fan of the air maracas.
The two head to a little Venezuelan bistro and sample some Venezuelan cuisine.
Then, after their bellies are completely full of greasy foreign food, they head to a bridge and Huhwahn asks her “Are you afraid of heights?”
and she is all “yeah, a little bit.'”
And at that very second I imagine she was probably re-thinking her second helping of arepas.
I can GUARANTEE you this…
Chelsea probably wrote FEAR OF HEIGHTS and WEAK STOMACH all over her
I have a PSA for all of you future Bachelor contestants.
Be VERY MINDFUL about what you share on your application or in your interviews because you can be absolutely certain they are going to EXPLOIT THE HECK out of that fear.
I wouldn’t recommend writing anything like the following:
deathly afraid of sharks
spiders make me want to pass out
i would rather die than bungee jump
The following would be what my application would look like:
Name: Sheaffer Sims
Do you have any fears? If so, please list.
I’m crazy scared of queso and tacos. Chocolate makes me cry.
Diamonds make me want to puke.
But that is neither here nor there.
Chelsea goes back and forth…and back and forth….and back and forth…..about if she wants to jump or not.
Huhwhan is all “Do you trust me?”
And if I was Chelsea, it would be here that I think I would have point out to Huhwhan that trusting HIM really isn’t the issue.
It’s about the bungee cord.
And the man who rigged up the bungee cord.
And the jagged rocks below that could possibly crack my skull into lots of teeny tiny pieces.
They end up jumping off.
And then they kiss upside down.
Chelsea says that since they got through this she feels that they could get through anything.
Sure Chelsea. You keep thinking that sweetheart.
The first time Camila says “You’re not my mommy!” I’m guessing you and your air maracas would be out the door.
And then they walk off with their arms around each other with their harnesses still on.
They eat dinner, and then lo and behold….what’s that I hear?
Yep friends! There is music in the background!
But this time I actually know the song!
“Hey Girl. What’s your name girl….”
They dance, and Chelsea is SUPER cute….but homegirl CANNOT dance.
Let’s just say Chelsea and Elaine are dancing soul sisters.
(Who knew that a Seinfeld theme would emerge today?!?)
The next morning all the ladies are sleeping and Huhwhan sneaks in to cook them breakfast.
The dog lover sees him first when she goes downstairs to let her dog out because THAT’S HER JOB you know. She covers her face, runs upstairs, and I find that for some strange reason I am super annoyed with her and kind of angry. Why do I care?
I love that Huhwhan popped over unannounced to cook them breakfast, but I do have one complaint.
He was wearing sweatshorts.
And men in any type of a sweatpant in a public situation make me EXTREMELY uncomfortable.
Huhwhan announces that there is going to be a pool party instead of a cocktail party.
And Kat is totally into it, because obviously.
The girls are hanging out around the pool,
and I still find myself wondering who a couple of them are.
Claire gets wind of the kissing between the opera singer and Huhwhan and she just can’t take it anymore. She heads to the bathroom to cry.
Can somebody get Mama?
WE’VE GOT A CRIER!
Mama shows up and talks her down.
Thank you Mama.
Time for the rose ceremony (THANK HEAVENS!)
So, that’s it for Episode 3!
As far as next week goes, I may or may not be doing a recap.
I will however have a recap of SEAN and CATHERINE’S WEDDING up on Wednesday!
BEFORE YOU GO….3 FANTASTIC THINGS TO SHARE WITH YOU:

Aren’t they so cute?!? 🙂
I also received the following e-mail from Sarah:
This vest is better than the pics! I love how heavy it is and the
quality is out of this world. I think this vest runs very true to size
(not small like some were concerned about) I can’t wait to style it with
jeans, skirts and my black leggings. (Grey Hue leggings are in the pic)
I took the hood off because I like less bulk, but the hood is cute
Also, I was extremely impressed with how fast I got it! 5 business
Thank you for finding this, Sheaffer! I own a lot of your
recommendations and this vest is definitely in my top 3 favorites!
(Along with the boots and the jeans! Ok, and maybe the fringe scarf
Have a great Sunday,
NOW….LISTEN TO THIS….
And the winner will get a $500 GIFT CODE TO GOODNIGHT MACAROON!!!!!!!!!!
SO FUN, RIGHT?
I’ve worn the puffer 3 times already. Twice I wore it in looks you saw styled on the initial post.
BUT THEN I HAD A STROKE OF GENIUS!
I paired the puffer with the grey sweater with the red plaid peeking out.
Why in the world hadn’t I thought of this before?
LET’S TALK SIZE FOR A MINUTE.
I normally wear a small or medium in tops and sweaters. I definitely needed a medium in this top. Several readers talk about how it runs SUPER small and to make sure you order a size (or 2) up! The medium is good with me and if I would have ordered 2 sizes up (a large) I feel certain it would have been too big. Concerning the vest, I have a medium. I usually wear a medium in jackets, so I would say this is true to size.
I love both pieces so much.
So, Go and Start Instagramming your pictures! The contest will end next Thursday and the winner will be announced on Friday
Goodnight Macaroon we would all just pretend it was Friday today if they
would go ahead and give us access to the sale items.Goodnight Macaroon
