From more drama to steamy hot tub scenes, tonight’s episode was as “Bachelorette” as it gets – minus the actually falling in love part (I’ll get to that in a minute). But once again I have so much to say about the episode that I couldn’t wait until tomorrow – so I’m posting tonight!!!! And adding cute pics of me and Molly in a hot tub cause I don’t have any photos from the show yet – so why not 😉 Ha! Let’s get into this…
Naked Bungee Date
I freaking love this date so much! Honestly I found myself at the edge of my seat waiting to see what was gonna happen. At first when they saw that the other bungee jumpers were naked, I thought for sure there was no way they were going to get naked too. I thought maybe bra and underwear but not naked. I’m still not 100% convinced that they both took off their underwear because I feel like that’s a level of intimacy that could potentially be unsanitary. Ha! I don’t even know if that makes sense. It doesn’t really, but it just seems way too close to somebody that I’m not super into. And I don’t think Hannah is super into Garrett. Her taking off her bra and even surprised me. But I don’t think chest to chest is that same level of intimacy. You guys might disagree with me.
At first I thought it was way too over-the-top and not appropriate for the naked bodies to be touching one another, but then when I really sat back and thought about it – what an incredible experience! I wish Hannah got to do it was somebody that she’s more into. Like Jed or Peter or heck even Luke P at this point because it probably would’ve been good for them! Then again we probably would’ve had a softcore porn0 going on and I think we can all do without that. So maybe it’s good that it was with somebody she’s not super connected to. Ha! And I loved how down for it Hannah was! I honestly probably would’ve chickened out. Not necessarily chickened out of the bungee jumping, but chickened out to take it all off with someone I didn’t know that well.
Just can’t imagine the rush and feeling that they must’ve had with their bodies pressed up against each other in the cold doing something that terrifying. Honestly it’s kind of on my bucket list now! I feel like that would be such an incredibly intimate experience to share with my husband.
At the end of their day when they sat down for dinner, I definitely felt more of a connection between them. And let’s face it, Garrett is just a standup guy! I mean, how could she not fall for him just a little bit after everything he said! I think he’s so great! I just think something’s missing. And I think it might be the physical chemistry. Because mentally and emotionally it seems like they are connecting.
I’ve always really liked Tyler. I’ve honestly always thought he was just really funny. But tonight I feel like we saw a different side of him. We saw a softer side of him. And saw that he really is starting to fall for Hannah! I didn’t see it between them so much before, but now it’s clear as day to me! I feel like he’s a front runner for sure! Top three – no doubt.
Ughhhhhh Luke!!!!! I do not know where to start with this situation. When he called her body a temple that she should save for her husband, I wanted to slap him! But in the same breath I understand why it seemed a little bit like crossing the line. But then again sleeping with everybody in the fantasy suite is kind of crossing the line too! But it’s something you have to do in this experience… That sounded kind of bad. Not everybody has to sleep with more than one person in the fantasy suite, or anybody all. I only did with one… and it was the person that I got engaged to! But my point is that a lot of people do and that’s because you’re forced to figure out who you want to get engaged to in such a short period time. You kind of have to throw all rules out the window! Or at least most of them!
Plus, Tyler C says it perfectly. She was living her life to the fullest! She was presented with something crazy and out of the box and scary and she just went for it! I think so highly of Tyler C for seeing that and saying it. What an awesome guy!
But I also completely understand why it was so upsetting to Luke. He’s really into her and it hurt him. I get that he’s on the Bachelorette, but just try to put yourself in the position of dating someone and finding out they did something like that with somebody else. It’s hurtful even though it’s part of this process. So I wish he talked about it that way. Coming from a place of hurt. Instead, he acted like a complete a-hole which shouldn’t be surprising to any of us.
I’m actually surprised that Hannah didn’t put him in his place right away. I think she might’ve been struggling internally because she told him to open up and be real and that’s what he was doing. I just think it took her a little bit of time to realize that the way he opened up was so disrespectful.
I seriously burst it out laughing out loud when the woman was singing and they thanked her in the middle of the song. I totally thought it was over too. I’m still laughing about it as I write this! It was one of those really funny awkward moments that is just really good TV!
Five minutes later, I found myself laughing just as hard! Once again I burst out in a super loud laugh that probably almost woke up my kids. It was when Peter tried to be all manly and push her down in the sauna and start making out with her. It started off so awkward! I feel like all of their make out sessions start off super awkward. Remember the pool table incident?! Ha! But then of course seconds later I had to start diverting my eyes because they got so hot and steamy! I’m really trying not to have judgment because there’s enough of that in this world. But I do think Hannah needs to pump the brakes a little bit. So far I feel like she’s gotten very steamy with 4 or more guys. And if she was the Bachelor I’d be super pissed! I’d feel like he was using the women. So I feel like I can’t have a double standard and not be disappointed with her for the same reasons. But that said, I’m not in her shoes right now and neither are any of you so we have to be careful to jump to any sort of conclusions and judgment for what she’s going through.
When they were in the hot tub, I was really proud of Peter for respectfully telling her how much it hurt him when she grouped him in with the other guys the night she got upset at the cocktail party. That’s how a man should express his feelings when he’s hurt! Luke should take some lessons.
And sidenote, was this the first hot tub scene of the season? I think it was! And as much as I like Peter and like them together I much more prefer Molly and I in the hot tub and our kisses. Ha! Once again because I’m posting this blog post on a Monday night instead of a Tuesday morning I don’t have access to ABC’s photos. So I had to use some of my own! And my photographer Ashley and I got these super cute photos of me and Molly in the hot tub with roses a month or so back. I figured I could use it for a scenario just like this! When I wanted to post about the show but didn’t have any photos! Thank goodness for the first hot tub scene of the season so I can use these cute pics! Ha! I linked my bikini and her rainbow suit below the photos. My bikini top is sold separately from the bottoms. I linked both, but I only bought the top and I wear it with other black bottoms I have.
Peter is also a top 3 guy for me. I’m pretty sure I’ve been saying that since the beginning. But I can’t even remember at this point. My brain is fried. All I know is that Jed’s her guy in the end. I’ve said that since the very, very beginning. Do you guys think Peter has a chance at being the Bachelor? On one hand I’d love to see him as the Bachelor. And on the other hand I feel like there’s something too innocent about him. What do you guys think?!
It’s funny because normally at this point I would think that the only reason Luke is still around is because the producer’s are begging her to keep him for the drama! But I think it’s pretty clear to all of us that that’s not the case. She’s keeping him because she chooses to! If producers were the reason she was keeping him around, she wouldn’t admit to Chris Harrison that she could possibly be falling in love with him. She just wouldn’t play that far into the game! He’s got to go home next week. Right?! I feel like after next week, if he is still around that she is going to lose a lot of viewers. I just am ready for the love story! She has such beautiful connections with some of these guys and I want to see those relationships flourish! She’s wasting her time with Luke and I know she’s going to see that soon. She’s a smart girl. Love can blind us but I’m hoping her love for herself will help her see more clearly.
While You’re Here
You HAVE to check out my 2nd Baby Registry Must Haves post. It’s my second post in a series of 3 that I’m doing. I just posted it yesterday and it has so many of my favorite baby products that saved me over the last 3 years! So check it out here if you are expecting or have an infant!
And here are some fun looks I posted this week that I think are perfect for hiding a baby bump or a baby burrito. Ha! They have helped me feel my best with my extra love around my midsection.
First being this GORGEOUS floral dress! It’s perfect for a summer wedding or any other somewhat formal event you have going on this summer! I love the way that it cinches at the waist. It truly emphasises your waist and is so slimming. Also, you guys know I normally try to cover my arms a little bit, but there’s something about this dress that really makes me feel so confident that I don’t need to!
I LOVE this tunic – I have multiple, and have kept it around for quite awhile! It isn’t a maternity top, but it was perfect for when I was pregnant with Riley. I love the lace details and the way that it flows so loosely. It truly is a great top for maternity, or after!
Time to talk about this super adorable dress. How beautiful is this!? I just adore it – especially the neckline and the sleeves. The squareish neckline really is so flattering, and the loose fit of the dress makes it so comfortable. I like to wear it when it’s that time of the month and putting on jeans is just way too uncomfortable. I just feel so pretty when I wear this dress!
