Big Medical Words / Bobby Pins & Bullets / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Uncategorized

I’m pretty fired up, y’all. I don’t actually know what the draw to Dr. Phil is.  I’ve never been a fan.  I realize people go to him for his sage advice the chance to be on TV, but do you ever wonder if people would actually go back to him if he were not on TV?  His opinions very rarely meet up with mine, but I really love when he just straight up makes stuff […]

Colton is knocking on Cassie’s door.  She opens the door and is surprised to see him.  They hug and he asks her if they can go talk. He tells her he sacrificed everything.  She stops and says, what? He proceeds to tell her that he ended things with both Tayshia and Hannah.  Cassie looks shocked or maybe like she wants to laugh. She seems pretty well stunned.  It takes her a bit to form words.  […]

If you remember last week he jumped the fence and was last known to be wandering somewhere in Portugal. Now because they are making it a two-night-live-hoopla we have to do reviews and recaps and flashbacks.  It’s not new though, because I was already watching all season. Picking up where we left off we find the search party looking for Colton.  Chris Harrison is a master sleuth and comments that a dog is barking over […]

Ok, I’m gonna just do bullet points of anything important, funny, or amusing from the Women Tell All. Oneyaka and Nicole still don’t get along.   Oneyaka and Sydney don’t get along.   Demi and Courtney don’t get along.   Random blonde girl is so hurt that Nicole would call Oneyaka a bully because random blonde girl was bullied.   So much yelling.   Katie said that she overheard Caelynn and Cassie talking about being the […]

We pick up with Colton and Papa Chris having a chat on the steps outside the rose ceremony.  He wants to chat about fantasy suites, but not as awkwardly as the last time they chatted about fantasy suites on Becca’s season.  It’s relatively boring.  He goes back inside to tell the ladies that they are heading to Portugal. We are potentially preparing for fantasy suites with Tayshia, Cassie and Hannah.  We take a look back […]

Let’s be real.  I watched this live, but I was feeling pretty crappy and it’s been a long week.  So I’m gonna bust out a quick little bullet point recap for y’all so you don’t go into FANTASY SUITES tomorrow confused.  Because I care about you. It’s hometowns week.  Four girls.  One Colton.  He goes to each town and does random activities with the girl and then meets some family members.  Everyone drinks lots of […]

*oops.. I thought I posted this last week. I’m sorry! It’s hard to believe we are already up to episode seven.  That’s crazy.  What a delicious waste of time. If you remember from last week he’s all stressed about who might be here for the wrong reasons.  He had three girls tell him as they were leaving that someone or someone(s) is there for a reason other than marriage with him. It’s time for Denver, […]

Roses go to: Caelynn Tayshia Kirpa Demi Hannah G Katie Sydney Which sends the two fighters off together on a plane back to the US. […]

I think it’s episode 5.  I didn’t blog last week because I was too sick.  So, I apologize.  But I’m back tonight! This week we are in Thailand.  It’s hot and steamy and a great place to take the next step with Colton.  I think it’s a great place to take a shower and find air conditioning. One-On-One- Heather (Never been kissed) “Let’s experience something new” Heather greets Colton by wrapping her mile-long-legs around him.  […]

If you’re offended by harsh language, this will really fucking offend you. I am not into lies.  Social media is a LOT of lies.  I’m not mad about it but it’s hard for me to do the lying games too.  I mean, I get it.  You’re focusing on the positive and that’s brilliant, not to mention I really encourage it to people ALL THE TIME. I sometimes feel like if I’m only mentioning the good […]
