Bachelor Gossip

So I saw MOST of the the episode last night. if i feel the need to go back, its on my DVR to catch the parts i missed. G and I decided to do dinner on his patio and since he's been working all weekend, i wanted to spend the time catching up with my hunny.

However, even though I didn't get to see the whole episode, i was perusing the online gossip sites this afternoon and came across THIS article! It interviews Tim, the drunk guy from episode 1. I gotta say, i actually do feel a little bad for him. He totally fesses up for being a complete idiot and blowing his chance with a potentially great girl.

And, in other Bachelor/Bachelorette news, i also learned that this couple is together!

If you're an avid Bachelor/Bachelorette watcher, you'll remember Kasey Kahl from Ali's season. Most famous for tattooing "guard and protect your heart" onto his forearm, singing impromptu (really bad) songs about love, and getting left on the side of a mountain in Iceland when Ali broke his heart. Apparently he is dating Vienna Girardi, from Jake's season - their relationship hit the rocks hardcore, ending with a confrontation interview. Gosh, what great reality TV.

I'm still waiting to see what happens with Emily Maynard and last season's Bachelor Brad Womack. They've been in and out of the tabloids for the past month. I watched her on some Bachelorette vlog last week and ladies, note, no ring! Now, maybe its just me, but if i had a ring like this, i'd never take it off!

What do you ladies think? Are Emily and Brad working things out? Or are they headed for Splitsville?

Til later when i can get home to do my link ups!

Flip Flop Swap!

What a fun idea! I'm linking up with Lyryn at Breaking Through for a flop flop swap! You should too!

Go there! Sign up! And in the meantime you can see the cute flops i got myself from Old Navy today!

For some reason i couldn't find these on the website, and they're the cutest ones! I also climbed an unstable "employee only" ladder to get a pair for C, your welcome biotch! LOL kidding...

Old Navy Lunch Trip

So. The idea is to hit Old Navy to pick up a few pairs of these:

I mean, you can't get any cheaper than $3.50 a pair right girls? Might as well get them in a few colors, they usually last til the end of the summer and then i chuck 'em...

But who's to say i won't come home with any of these adorable finds...

Cute and comfy to either hit the gym in... or wear with a cute wife beater tank underneath... while lounging on the couch and watching re-runs of mob wives... wait, did i just say that last part out loud?

I've been on the search for a reasonably priced leather braided belt, if i can find this one, it will definitely be in my shopping cart! I may or may not already have a braided belt at home that I'm just too lazy to look for but shhhh... if anyone asks, you didn't hear that from me.

This looks like a cute summery tunic for the days when its not quite hot enough for short sleeves, or if you work in a freezer like i do and constantly have to wear cardigans. thank god for the snuggie ma dukes just got me. i can't wait to see the look on my co-workers faces when i break that bad boy out. in august. bahahaha.

Even though this is a really simple tank, i love the striping and tiers of this tank. It would look cute with skinny jeans and a blazer and my steve madden platform nude pumps to dress it up a little. perfect for a date night with ma boy-frannnnn... (that was a lil country accent for you girls)

OK i admit... i probably wouldn't actually buy this, but i had to throw it in there... i mean, its hello kitty, who doesn't love this asian icon... and being that i'm asian... well enough said.

What have you bought from Old Navy lately?

Oh and PS going to Old Navy = lunch at Chik-fil-A. I know you're jealous. NOM NOM NOM...

Thought I Was Done for the Day...

Decided i liked these questions so i'd link up! You can do it HERE.

1. Do you apologize to your kids?
So. technically, i no has kids. But, i do have furbabies, which personally are sometimes WORSE than human kids. haha. And yes, i apologize to them... like this week, when i told scooter he was so annoying "i am going to f*cking KILL you dog". Yeah that was mean. i retracted immediately. he still gave me dirty looks.

2. What color are your nails right now?
Right now... i am ashamed to say it. My nails are BARE. i know i know... like i said, ashamed. I had grand plans for a DIY mani/pedi last night. But when G called and said his NJ Transit train was broken indefinitely and he was stuck in NYC, i had to throw the man a bone and pick him up to drive him back to his car at the train station. So my plans of a glorious night in with a glass of wine, a mani/pedi and my DVR were instead turned into 2+ hours in the car driving up and down the NJ Turnpike. No one ever said loving someone else wasn't without sacrifices right? plus, i know he would have done the same for me.

3. When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick? (As in, did you have to vomit or just say "I don't feel good".)
Ma dukes was pretty strict, so we were only allowed to miss school if we were legit sick. That lady don't play. But that must be the reason i'm SO gosh darn SMART! RIGHT???

4. When is the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?
I'd say about 3 years ago. Right after my ex and i separated, i decided to get this GORGEY Restoration Hardware comforter, Italian Cyprus Paisley, swoon! After i saw the price tag (it may or may not have been about $300 for a DUVET. hey i never said i wasn't nuts), i vowed to never buy another comforter again in my life. I've been using it (and loving it) ever since. The sad thing is once I move in with the BF, it totally doesn't match anything in the bedroom. Sadness.

5. Favorite website(s)?
See yesterday's post about my favorite time wasters HERE!

OK for realz now, that's all i got for today... yay for 3pm early dismissal from work. still doesn't make up for the 15% salary cut, but i'll take what i can get!

PS. Someone PLEASE help me get that damn Rebecca Black "Friday" song OUT OF MY HEAD!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

Summer Lovin' Happened So Fast...

I met a girl crazyyyy for meeeeeee! i met a boy cute as can beeeeeee.... oops, i'm getting carried away over here... but how can you not LOVE that movie and just want to sing along (i know you all are in your heads as you're reading this!)

Anyway, since the Jersey weather hit the 90 degree mark AND since there are only two more weeks til i'm off on my myrtle beach vacash... and since all my sweet bloggy friends are posting about them, i think i need me one of these.

Adorable right? Though, i really don't know if i could pull off a bright pink hat... don't get me wrong, i LOVE me some pink. But i'm thinking of something more like below. I'll let my girls PinkLouLou and Kristen from All in My Twenties go for the pink! (And check out their blogs while you're at it, they're fabby!)

More my style:

This one's from Nordstrom, very cute, will match most anything... reasonably priced.

This one is also cute, more of a taupe color... not sure that i love the white stripes on the brim and bow ribbon.

This Urban Outfitters one may be the winner... though its simple, i love the "flop" of it...

Another simple and sweet hat, a bit different from Bloomies. Is this worth $48 + shipping? Darn, of course, the more i look at it, the more i like it. But the budget is tight this month since i need spending moola for the actual trip. (Can we say his & hers massages!)

Anyway, weigh in and let me know which hat you think I should get... i definitely have to get something, don't want any pre-mature wrinkling, i spend WAY too much money at the dermatologist to damage my skin.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, have a blast, stay safe and i'll catch you on the flip side of the weekend!

So for now, i'll just leave you with my current favorite song...

SWWWWOOOOOON! Love this guy, love this song.... love love love! Miranda is one lucky girl!

Til tomorrow ladies...

Time Wasters

Think it might be a slow day at work... which is good because I feel pretty darn UN-motivated to do any actual work anyway. On days like this i like to indulge in what i like to call Time Wasters. Here are a few of my favorites below!

1. Facebook/Farmville/Zuma Blitz

2. Texts from Last Night - a hilarious website of user submitted texts. Most of them are drunken or about drinking. The rest are about sex. But they are all pretty gosh darn funny. Some of my favorites from today:

(530): My ex came to my place while I was gone. Random things he took: snow shoes, my laundry quarters, a decorative picture, all my condiments, the container that held my rice and a sticker off my wallet. Then left a note saying he watered my plants and fed my cats. What. The. Fuck.

(859): how thoroughly do i need to sanitize the cone the vet put around my dog's neck for it to be safe to use as a beer bong?

(501): I just found what appears to be a tooth in my purse...anybody missing one?

3. Perez Hilton - my 1st stop source for celebrity gossip! Loves him!

4. Twitter - Find me here posting about random stuff! Along with some of my other favorite bloggy friends!

5. Your Blogs! See my sidebar to ALL the ones I read on a daily basis!

What do you do at work when you want to procrastinate? Happy Hump Day Girlies!

Oh Boy, bring on the DRAMA!

From creepy masks, to drunken snoring, to gimmicks with guitars, signs and dental floss, the bachelorette kicked off strong last night. Now i don't know about you girls but i wasn't overly impressed with most of the guys Ashley has to choose from. Some of them were cute, and hopefully their personalities will get a chance to come out more as the season goes on.

So let's start with Bentley. He's the one that is being made out to be "not here for the right reasons" right off the bat. I personally wouldn't trust the guy as far as i could throw him. I guess we'll see what happens as the season plays out, there's definitely going to be drama. Even G thought Bentlers seemed like he was going to be up to no good (and yes, i got my BF to watch the Bachelorette and i know he secretly liked it!).

Next up, we gotta talk about the drunk guy! Tim. Oh Tim, are you a full fledged alcoholic, or did your nerves get the best of you and you just had a few too many? And the snoring, geez, i would have to eliminate him on that alone! (Coincidentally i recorded G last week snoring away, luckily i was still awake so i thought it was hilarious.) Oh and is it ironic that he's a "liquor distributor"? I mean, he did a good job of distributing the liquor... into his body! AND the funniest part of his ABC profile:

What is your most embarrassing moment? Laughing at a joke and not realizing I was the punch line.

Ummmm.... Tim, i think you have a NEW most embarrassing moment. Being completely wasted, incoherent and passed out snoring on national TV. G and i were laughing SO hard at him... though we did both feel the tiniest bit bad too, but in the end, he did it to himself. Peace out drunky!

On to my personal favorite, JP. He's a New Yorker, so i'm a little partial to that (i guess i have to be, being that i'm dating a new yaw-ka)... i loved his cupcake story, shows he has a sense of humor. And he's definitely not hard on the eyes!

Now, i don't know about you girls, but besides creepy mask guy, i could NOT for the life of me figure out why she kept THIS guy. I don't know, he just seems... gay. And not just because he's a hair dresser. OK maybe because he's a hair dresser. Though in this picture he doesn't look AS bad... thoughts?

And what was UP with the masked guy?! I mean, i get it, i do, he wants her to like him for him and not his looks. But what if she takes the mask off and he's FUGLY? hahaha... and did you ladies see them show him ON THE TOILET wearing the mask? that in and of itself would make me run and not look back.

What did you girls think of last night's episode? Do you think Ashley will find love with one of these guys? Will you watch the drama unfold with Bentley?

Another Fun Filled Weekend!

Happy Monday girlies! It was a great weekend but now we're back to Monday. At least I have a 3-day weekend to look forward to and hopefully some nicer weather! (Though i think the forecast was rain all week... grrr...)

Friday night I headed to Staten Island to dinner with G and family. It was my first time meeting his brother and his family so that was nice... We had a feast at a chinese restaurant called Jade Island. The atmosphere is a Tiki bar and its rumored that Anthony Bourdain filmed there recently! As always this bad blogger didn't take any outfit pics... it was rainy, we were running late and i forgot my camera... oopsy!

Saturday we were up bright and early. Blew off the gym and hit up one of our favorite spots. Sonic. Love that glorious drive thru. After we stuffed ourselves silly, i had to go to Petsmart and get these.

The brats are too small to get on the bed themselves... so i guess for $20 this was a good investment. Until i got home and of course, they were scared of them and refused to go near them. Luckily a tasty treat enticed Rio enough (who is now a pro) and Scooter eventually followed.

We also ended up at Dick's Sporting Goods where our initial trip was for these.

So the original idea was for G to run, and for me to skate along side him. Which sounds in theory like a good idea. Til we saw these.

Yup. Just call me Lance Armstrong.

Those are the bikes sitting by my car. We had to buy a trunk rack at Dick's and attempt to put it on in the parking lot. That only took 8 years a little while to do.

Did you know mountain bikes don't come with kickstands? Who'da thunk it...

So anyway, by the time we got back we decided to just take a ride around G's development... and can i just say... i sucked. BIG TIME. But people, in my defense, i don't think i've ridden a bike since i was like, 15... so cut me a break here. Also, i used to ride in my driveway (my parents had a super long driveway) and not in the street with actual CARS! oh and golf carts (G lives in a development with a golf course. snooty i know... hehehe) I mean, couple all that with the fact that i didn't know how to switch gears, and i was rolling at a speed of about 2 mph. Oh and my ass hurt. It just wasn't a pretty sight for me. BUT, i am determined... i WILL get better! In the meantime...

I guess i deserved that...

Sunday I went to see Something Borrowed with ma dukes... i thought it was cute and entertaining. i loved the part where Rachel pulled a certain body part on the dance floor. that had me cracking up! And Dex.... swooon.... and Ethan... swooon!

Bachelorette starts tonight, who's watching? Catch me on twitter if you wanna chat during the show! (See my link to the right!)
