5 Things about Last Night’s Bachelorette

We’ll keep it real short & sweet since we’re all already 90 hours deep into the Bachelorette this season, and it’s only week 1:

1.  Britt’s not my favorite, but I still never wanna see anybody sad.  I thought she handled it well.  Maybe girlfriend just doesn’t know what kind of eggs she likes yet.


2.  She’s real cute.

3.  I mean, I hate to do this cuz Clint is legit Heath Ledger hot……  but am I kinda right or am I right??  I always wondered what happened to Baby Oscar in the yellow onesie from Ghostbusters II.

4.  Loooooook at this guy (!!!!!) when he hears that Kaitlyn aka Wifey is the Bachelorette.  What a sweetie.  All beaming with pride listening to her speech.  Also: do we think Shawn B is what would’ve happened if Ryan Gosling + Calvin Harris ever played swords?



5.  Gotta give the guy props for bowing out to chase down Britt’s exit limo.  In fact, my buddy Wingert (soccer stud for the New York Red Bulls) tuned in for about 3 seconds on Monday and said that …’if a guy picks one of them and she gets the axe, that guy should have to leave as well.”  Called it, Boss!

good move

PS: I can’t wait to see how Britt reacts when he starts strumming his guitar strings outside her hotel room door.  I’m guessing a surprised face, then an “OMG I can’t believe you’re here / this is so sweet” couple of phrases, then a gentle let-down.  But that’s just me.  I hope she throws the kid a bone.

Happy Hump Day!

6 Good Things for your weekend!

6 Things for Your Weekend | Covet Living

1 – This adorable “Flash ‘Em It’s Friday” tee & short set from ASOS.  AKA your new PJ’s.

2 – Snag yourself some fresh flowers on the way home from work tonight.  They’re good for your soul.  When I was standing over a sea of tulips last weekend and thinking better of spending $10 on flowers, I just resolved I’d cut out a latte or two, and remember to bring my mat to yoga this week so I don’t have to rent one.  See – that’s a good trade, right?  Problem solved.

3 – Whether you’re staying in in a Snuggie and doing a House of Cards binge, have to bring an app to a pot luck or are just stocking the fridge, do yourself a favor and pick up some of this cheese – try Whole Foods or any schmancy market or specialty food/wine shop. It has GOT to be laced with crack because it is DUL-LICIOUS (thanks, Kristine, for bringing it to Bach Fest every week!)  Pair it with a glass or two of Meomi Pinor Noir and you’re good to go.

4 – If you find yourself in the mani/pedi salon this weekend, go for something different – like a Kerry Washington’s nude mani with red tips.  Or this metallic one. Cuz we gotta do somethin’ to shake up Schmanuary.

5 – Print something that lifts your spirits online at and slap that sucker in a frame so you can see it every day.  Or slap it on the way out the door to work in the mornings.  Because how often do you Pin something that resonates with you, then forget it?  I just printed “The grass is greener where you water it” and popped it in a frame on my nightstand:

6 – Get a good cackle out of this spirited dude rocking out to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”  He’s a buddy of my good buddy Wingert… apparently this poor guy’s wife found this video on his computer and thought it was so hilarious that she uploaded it to You Tube.  (We love her.)  My favorite part is the absolute meltdown of amazing dance moves that come at the chorus.

Happy Friday!!
