The Bachelorette – Premier

I will freely admit, The Bachelor/Bachelorette is my guilty pleasure.  I love getting together with a group of gals, gabbing over what he/she wore, what they said, what they did… it also is a huge reminder of how blessed I am to have my family.

Anyway, I’m really excited for this season.  Andi seems like a gal who knows what she wants.  There wasn’t a guy who stood out to me, so I’m interested to see how these relationships develop during the season.  If I had to pick a guy though, after the first episode, I think I’d say Marcus.


Or maybe Nick S (both headshots are from ABC’s official cast page, with a fun, personal touch).


Being the party planner that I like to be, I decided to host the premier party. And while I didn’t get as much done for it as I wanted to, there were a couple of fun things I did manage to pull together after a crazy weekend.

I created a cast board, which I plan to lug around to the different places so we can keep track of who’s still around throughout the season.


Since we’re all working women in one form or another (mothering counts, of course!), instead of having a drinking game, I made a Bingo card for each of us. Truth be told, it will be better as the weeks progress. And, since Bingo wasn’t called this week, we’re reusing it again next week, then the responsibility of a new card falls to someone else – we’re all keeping track of the year’s buzzwords to change it up!


The other requirement for last night’s affair was bringing a snack that was renamed to be something about The Bachelorette… and what amazing snacks there were…


All in all, a good night. I even gave up Reality Steve for this season… it’s killing me!
