First, there’s this. My baby fell asleep in my arms for his morning nap yesterday. I debated transferring him to his crib, like a crazy person, for just a second, and then my heart grew ten thousand times and I just couldn’t bear to move him, so in my arms he stayed. And he slept for 1.5 hours. It was literal heaven on earth and I basically just stared at him for the entire time. Oh, that sweet angel baby. He is my joy.
Okay, one more. Twist my arm. ;)
Woo boy, folks. This week was a doozy! A TWO-FER Bachelor! But Sunday night was also the SNL 40 special, so obvi we were like… mmmmmm… let’s see here… and priorities won over, and SNL won by a landslide. But we are devoted to these darn Man Quotes (and plus, yeah, hate to admit, I’m kind of devoted to the Bachelor, too) so we found it and watched 4 HOURS OF BACHELOR last night. My poor husband. And also, bless his heart. Or as my mama would say, bless his pea pickin’ heart. :) On to the quotes! There are a lot! You’re….welcome? Sorry? Not sure which way to go here.
First off: Be sure to read last week’s quotes here!
Zack: Whoa, she’s got a greasy face.
Chris: “I have to just let you go…”
Katie: …It’s because of her greasy face.
Chris: I just can’t send another girl home tonight.
Zack: Can I marry all of them?
“We’re going to Iowa!”
[All the girls scream and jump up and down]
I have never seen anyone be that excited about going to Iowa…
Jade: “Chris’s house has a very “bachelor” feel to it.”
Katie: Well, yeah. He’s the BACHELOR.
Chris: “Jade has a wild side…”
Katie: Oh, you have no idea.
Chris: “I don’t think Jade has come out of her shell with me.”
Zack: Not with you…
Jade: “It was basically a Hometown date.”
Katie: Well.. I mean… It was a hometown date, so…
Kaitlyn: “I’d want to pop out babies ASAP if I lived in Arlington, Iowa.”
Zack: It’d give you something to do.
Katie: And someone to hang out with.
Whitney: “Our picture had been painted on the wall, like a mural!”
Zack: Well, that is what a mural is.
Allll the Britt stuff: DR-AMA.
–About the Britt drama– Okay, so she just said that her first impression of the town (which took them approx. 2 minutes to drive through) was that she couldn’t picture herself living there, but then thought more about it and could. I mean, I think that was just her being 100% honest, and NOT being fake. Pretty sure they all thought that right away, even if they didn’t say it. So, yeah. But when she fails to mention that and just tells Chris that she “LOVED” it and could totally see living there! Um, no. That was fakety fake fake. And near the end she was just soooo annoying and I was basically so over her. Like, go home already. Stop talking about it and go.
“And tonight, the drama in Iowa continues.”
Zack just laughs.
Chris: “I think that’s what I love about you the most.”
Zack: All she heard was I love you.
Britt packed her bags and is talking about leaving early.
Zack: Britt is not leaving early. Watch.
Britt: “There’s no cocktail party. I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Zack: I thought you were going to go.
Britt: “The train is moving.”
Katie: Jump aboard!
Zack: The old cancelled cocktail party trick.
Katie: Wait… There are gators, and then the just go in a tiny little boat? Um. HELL no.
Katie: Okay, Becca’s sister telling Chris that Becca is not affectionate.. Um. How does she know?!
Katie: …What does Becca’s sister think a “sugar donut” is?
Zack: Is sugar donut code for something, or…?
Becca: “I think this feeling is the feeling that I’m feeling that love is starting to happen.”
Katie: That’s a lot of feelings.
Chris: “I make corn, and she makes babies.”
Katie: Yeah. She wins. Although, corn IS delicious…
Zack: Overprotective sis-ter!
Okay, I like Whitney’s sister. He asked for approval, and she said “I need her to be THE ONE, not one of four. So call me when you have that.” BOOM. PERFECT.
And the classic Bachelor moment: “I love you.” [Responds with makeout sesh]
Whitney: “It just makes sense. Traveling back and forth between Chicago and Iowa.”
Zack: Wait. That doesn’t make any sense.
Zack, who said two weeks ago that Carly is going to win the Bachelor: “Kaitlyn will win the Bachelor, even though I want her to be the Bachelorette.”
Katie: Jade’s father is totally sabotaging her!
Chris: “He referred to as a wild mustang.”
Zack: Here comes the wild mustang!
Time for the awkward face twitching! Any time Chris is uncomfortable, his face twitches.
Thoughts? I think Whitney is super sweet, but it’s weird because I feel like we hardly saw her relationship with Chris growing at all, since it was mostly just like THE BRITT SHOW. Like, I don’t even know her? So it’s hard to be gung-ho about them. I really like Kaitlyn, as does Zack. She’s just awesome, but I’m actually rooting for her to be the next Bachelorette.

Yesss!! His face does twitch all the time. It’s so weird. And the whole Britt thing – I think she forgot she’s on the same show as these other women because she always thought she should be number one. Good for him for letting her go. And what is squeaky-voice fertility nurse talking about? Because I think she means traveling back and forth on a daily/weekly basis. And no part of that makes sense.
Now that I’ve noticed the face twitching, I literally CANNOT not see it. Every. Time. Chris, stop being so nervous.
I can’t see Whitney leaving her job. But I really like her. Kaitlyn has been my favourite since day one when she dropped the f bomb in her first meeting with him. But I agree that she would be the perfect Bachelorette. I was shocked he kept Becca and got rid of Jade. Though I didn’t see Jade moving to Arlington. I say it like I know them, but I really feel like I do.
I think this season has been an awesome one.
Love the snuggly pictures!! So sweet! I’m catching up on the Bach on my first day home for maternity leave (bedresting&waiting for the babes!). I love the baby blue leggings, where’d ya get ’em?! P.s-ordered the white Kohls pair from your post a couple weeks ago :)
Ohhhh my gosh, you’re so close, girl!!! :) I’m super excited for you! <3 The leggings I'm wearing here are actually thermal pj pants from Forever 21! And Sam's little pants are baby gap. :) I'm so glad you got those Kohls ones! Aren't they the best? I wear them like every night haha
Haha I’m the same- we TOTALLY know them. Kaitlyn HAS to be the next Bach. She just has to be. That season would be SO legit. And I agree, I’ve really enjoyed this season!! I’m kind of sad it’s almost over!
We also charged through four hours of the show last night. Dedication. I have family that lives in Iowa and I’m here to report that absolutely no one has ever been excited to go to Iowa after they’ve been there for 30 seconds. Just keepin’ it real. Also, it totally freaks me out how Britt went from total frontrunner to gone in 30 minutes of showtime. Holy cow. My fiance is totally crushing on Kaitlyn, by the way.
Bahahaha you crack me up, girl. “And I’m here to report that absolutely no one has ever been excited to go to Iowa.” HILARIOUS. Seriously, I don’t get how Britt went downhill SO fast. Crazy!
Thank you for mentioning the whole “sugar donut” thing! I said the same thing to my husband and he completely shrugged it off and eluded to me having my mind in the gutter. But it was weird, right?! And even if she meant nothing by it, the sugar donut reference was kind of fantastic. I sure did whip it back out when Jade asked if he wanted to see her Playboy pics. I mean, how could I not? You can’t really put your sugar donut on the world wide web and have someone be super pumped about the entire world being able to see that part of your potentially future wife.
Hahaha the sugar donut thing was so funny!! Like, where did that even come from?! And yeah, the entire Jade scene was just awkward and hilarious at the same time. TOO MUCH SUGAR DONUT. ;)
WOW. Just wow! SO much happened this week! Britt went cray cray! I think the pressure made her crack. She realized she wasn’t alone or something. Not sure…
I was honestly SHOCKED that Jade went home. I was still hoping she’d make it to the end regardless of her decisions. I thought that they had more chemistry than he eluded to… but I must be wrong.
Kaitlyn is my forerunner, still. I love her. I love her personality. . . and her dry humor. But she’s scared of opening up and that could hurt her.
Whitney… hmm. Does she really plan to have an 4½ hour (one way) commute to work??? Is that was she was saying? That confuses me……..
Ps LOVE these pictures <3
Aww yeah, I had a feeling after Chris found out he would want nothing to do with Jade. I thought it was funny that her brother called her a “wild stallion” too. Like, WTF? And Kaitlyn is awesome, but I don’t think she’s right for Chris. So I’m banking on her being the next Bachelorette!!
