So back in the day. I mean a long long time ago Kenny and I had just started dating and he lived with his best friend Chad. And every week Chad and his girlfriend and Kenny and I would all crowd around the television to watch this new hit show The Bachelor. We were glued to the television, boys and girls alike. Who was "The Bachelor" going to pick to propose to. Somehow we missed the first season so this was Aaron's season and we all wanted him to choose Brooke, the girl from Alabama soooo bad.

I have to admit I was a long time watcher of The Bachelor and probably stopped watching when Meredith became the bachelorette. The girl's personality was boring with a capital B! But then came these scandalous commercials in the past year. Some girl in the bachelor house had hooked up with someone in the house who was GASP not the bachelor. And while I am totally ashamed to admit this...that commercial worked. I tuned in. And by default...poor guy... so did Kenny. And now we are hooked.

Jake as the Bachelor was so incredibly cheesy and I could see upon my return to the show that the producers were taking new liberties with the word reality and I was loving all the drama. Rozalyn and the crew member, Allie and Vienna's hatred for each other and then Jake just picking Vienna at all!

Last season Kenny's favorite was Allie so naturally we went right along with the new season and her being the bachelorette. Wow! These guys on this show are weirdos. But Kacey takes the cake and he has kept me cracking me up the entire time. I am sad he is gone. My friend Susan who lived with us for a week because her AC was out watched the episode where Kacey serenaded Allie and now she is hooked. What's with this ridiculous show??

During last night's episode of The Bachelorette a commercial came on for The Bachelor Pad starting in August. Have yall seen the commercial. It looks awesome in a trashy television kind of way. After the commercial was over I said "We are sooooo watching that." To which Kenny replied "Well hell yeah!" Poor guy...

Summer is flying by! And since May was so incredibly crazy for us we have tried to slow it down in June. Try being the key word. So that brings me here. I know I haven't blogged in a while. But its official! I'm back and I promise to make more of an effort. Hope there are still a few of you guys reading!

This picture is funny but it looks sorta like theirs.

Last weekend our friends Joe and Tracy invited a big group of us to their families new lake/river house. It was so nice and the best thing was Joe and Tracy just bought a pontoon boat and I have to say I am a smidge obsessed. They have always had a ski boat but I have officially jumped on the pontoon bandwagon. We had like 12 people on there and 5 coolers and it was so much room. And there is something to be said for just jumping off and floating in the water for hours on end. It was so fun!

My poor skin hasn't seen a natural way of getting a tan in a few years so I of course got a mild sunburn WITH suncreen reapplied but it was so worth it!

This weekend my mom came in town. She just got back from the Camen Islands so it was fun to hear about her trip. Friday night Kenny was itching to cook a meal so he had me pick out what I wanted. I have to say it was amazing. He made these maple slow cooked country ribs and horse radish restuffed potatoes that were worthy to feed to company. It was soooo good.

On Saturday my mom and I went and got pedicures and went to get some art framed and then headed up to Brookhaven Pub to watch the USA soccer game. It was so much fun watching the game in a packed bar full of people. It was kind of crazy how loud it got when USA scored.It was sad when USA lost but they just seemed tired. After the game we went to see Knight and Day. The new Tom Cruise movie. It was cute. I won't give a whole review but it was funny, totally unrealistic, made me want to go to Spain and a remote Caribbean Island, and Tom Cruise did not bug me in it despite his bad outfit choices (one included a jean shirt and black jeans). I would give the movie a

Hoping this weekend flies by because Kenny and I are excited about our 4th of July plans!
