Bachelor (ette) fans

Who watches the Bachelor(ette)????

I’ve been into them on and off since my college days. I was first introduced to the show when Aaron Buerge was the Bachelor in 2002. Remember him, he picked Helene, very sweet girl, but I did love Southern belle Brooke. We used to be devoted to the show and especially when Andrew Firestone was the man, a group of us girls would get together each week with munchies and gush and bash the show. Also, which was big, there a girl from our school on the bachelor that season which made it even more saucy, but she didn’t get much air time :(

Many seasons in between I didn’t get too enthralled in once I started working full time, had kids and so on, but got back into it when DeAnna Pappas was on (i was a Jesse fan). I am not sure why I got into it again, but I did!

I can tell you why I am into the Bachelorette this season with Ali though….

I know one of the bachelors :) First off though, we in Massachusetts thought it was pretty cool when Ali was announced as the next Bachelorette after her drama with Jake and Vienna. It was a local news big story, I guess not too much fame comes from our parts so we rely on reality stars :) So months go by and my hubby is talking to one of his old roommates who also stood up in our wedding and said he’s forgot to mention that his brother is on the bachelorette this season whom hubs lived with one year as well. Naturally we get all giddy and psyched up for the airing of the show which finally started a few weeks ago. (if you want gossip, go to, he’s got all the scoop, and I hate being the spoiler even though we’ve been trying to pry info out them for weeks now).
We now got a bunch of family and friends into it, have people over like every Monday night to watch. (Although my friend Jill signed me up for a "cake decorating" class for Mondays, thank goodness for DVR! I can't even bake!)

Any takes on which Bachelor I know???

Which was your all time favorite bachelor or bachelorette?

Mine is Andrew Firestone and Matt Grant, I was a fan of DeAnna’s reign as well.


Whats your take on this season? The weatherman needs to go ASAP or I may start writing hate mail! (I guess you know one bachelor that its not!) Ugh can't stand him, such a loser!

M.I.A (AkA, missing in action)

Lately I’ve been M.I.A, I know(not this M.I.A :), but wasnt that one crazy talk about outfit that night, my goodness). And I do have a ton of excuses up my sleeve, but do you really want to hear them????

(if so I will be happy to elaborate, but I just don’t want to bore you with the same Riddick of every mom’s lifestyle these days, because we all know how easy it is to let time pass you by when you have kids)

I have a few things I’d love to blog about, whether I get to them all today or not I will separate them into different posts so I don’t try to moosh everything into together as usual.

A few post subjects on the way:

- The Bachelorette (Yes, I know one of the infamous Bachelors this season, guess which one!)

- A Pattern Review (which I hope to start to do regularly). I love trying to new sewing patterns and think its very helpful to see reviews on them and how others perceived the directions and what not of it.

- New things going on with the “Local Collection”, future boutique business ideas.

- And I am sure you’ll here a little about the fam in between everything.

I hope I didn’t scare everyone off with my M.I.A status!
