if you've been reading then you know i loved the finale. brad chose emily. good choice, my man. you'd be crazy to let that girl go. of course, i have thoughts. and entertain me, if you will...
she's adorable. like sooo adorable. i basically told steve it'd be okay if he had a crush on her cause she's perfect and so classy. but he did say that he really liked me and is glad i'm the one he's got. good answer. whether he's saying it to ensure he keeps gettin' some or not, good answer.
her clothes are the best. i want to swap closets with her. and does she do her own hair? she's good at it.
chantal, i felt really bad for you. this is the first finale where i truly liked both girls (despite the fact that i so wanted emily to win). it's gotta be hard going up against who america is describing as mother teresa. i mean, nothing bad can be said about emily (though tabloids will try to) and that's gotta suck! but glad you have someone now chantal.
i thought it was odd how emily said she seemed uptight and boring throughout her bachelor stint. how she wishes she'd be taken on more fun dates. i get what she means. she didn't seem super spunky and that she would really hold her own in a marriage until the after the final rose. why? how she jumped up when brad asked for water like "let me get it for you!" and then we see her on the finale with brad all in the doghouse every monday night. it was a little confusing. maybe it was abc's editing or that she was pretty reserved in reality but whichever the case, i am glad she's got a little more spunk to her. do you think she'll ever fart in front of him though? prob not.
the silly hollywood part of me wanted them to be all blissfully happy when we saw them in after the final rose but it's better that they are real and i think it was smart of her to say she wanted to live beyond the after the final rose and the monday nights and just live and learn how to communicate. and he is SMITTEN with her so i think if anyone ends this, it'll be her. though i hope not.
they have a 14-year age difference. a woman after my own heart! go em go!
i think that's it. i do think they'll make it. or i really hope so anyway.
OH, one more thought. didn't like how brad said he was getting shot down and "mad" at their last date when she was telling him about the reality of being a father. I TOTALLY GET THAT. she wanted no surprises and for him to, months down the road, be like "this SUCKS, why didn't you tell me?" then she and ricky lose him. so she should make NO apologies for that. and i'm done.
i got an email from a blog reader living in japan right now. she is safe (alleluia!) and wanted me to share this site which allows you to easily donate through facebook, itunes, texting, etc. check it out unless you've already got your own favorite charity.
have you heard the rob bell hoopla over the past day or so? maybe not. check it out. i think religious discussions are some of the coolest there are. as long as each person is willing to agree to disagree nicely. otherwise, they suck. well, i want to read this book really badly. i like love a lot. and i soooooooooooooooooooo hope the title of the book is true. that love wins.
i love my husband so much. he's hilarious and has been making me smile a lot these days.
i woke up at 6 this morning to pee and then could hardly go back to sleep because i was dreaming of nurseries. an exciting thing to dream about but i'd like it if my head could wait until the more normal hours of the day to do so.
my chest is large and in charge like it's never been before. in fact, when i walk around i think babies begin to clutch at their own mom's chest desperate to nurse. did your chest double in size when/if you got pregnant?
fyi: sponsors can start any day of the month. the whole only-starting-the-first-of-the-month biznaz didn't make much sense to me. email me if you'd like more info?
i'm going to learn to meditate at a class with this lovely lady today. i've been wanting to learn to meditate for forever now and she's the greatest so i think it'll be a good day. and the sun is out too!
how are you?
