Friday Favorites Link Up – The Bachelor Edition


It’s Friday again, woo hoo! I’m linking up with the ladies of A Little Bit of Everything Blog, Grace and Love Blog, and Momfessionals.

And today through the link up I found other ladies who also host their own link up. So today for the first time I’m joining 5 of Friday with A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, Hello! Happiness, and The Good Life Blog.



To keep the link up party going, I’m also joining The Farmer’s Wife and September Farm today as well!



I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I watch the Bachelor and the Bachelorette and I’ve read their books (Trista Sutter‘s book that I haven’t blogged about yet, Sean Lowe’s For the Right Reasons, and Courtney Robertson’s I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends).

So I love all things Bachelor. I love that Jimmy Kimmel talks about it so much, and was on the show this season. This is an old video but I love that he did the baby Bachelor with his nephew and I love that Des was a good sport and played along.


I wasn’t planning on making this a Bachelor edition of Friday Favorites, but I might as well go with it. If you are watching this season of the Bachelor with Chris, then you will know that Whitney is one of the last three girls that are left. She is by far my favorite girl on the show, and for Chris.

I think they’re a great match. She seems level headed, sincere, and honest about wanting to be with Chris and being open to move to small town Arlington, Iowa. They look great together and I hope they end up together and can make it long term (because so many couple obviously don’t make it in the real world). I don’t read the spoilers and I don’t know who he picks but I hope it’s Whit!

If you guys are watching this season, who do you like? Kaitylnn, Becca, or Whitney? Also who would you like to be the Bachelorette? I think Kaitlynn would be really fun. She’s great but I don’t see her with Chris. And Becca is so sweet but I feel like she’s a little young and innocent for Chris. B7wjZ_-CAAAyMb0.jpg-large

THE NEW YOU(2)And lastly, I want to highlight the blogs and recaps that I love reading each week.


  • It’s not a blog but each week Jason and Molly Mesnick do a podcast on their website Gossip and Reality and I love getting their perspective since they’ve been through it together

I know I read a lot of recaps, but are there any more that I’m missing and should be reading?



I like to follow past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants and leads from the show on social media and I love seeing what they are up to after being on TV. It’s fun to see all the Bachelor babies. Here are a few of my favorites.

Riley Mesnick


Addison Stagliano


Fordham Rosenbaum


Ava and Beckett Strickland 


Max and Blakesley Sutter



And lastly I want to say how cool I think it is that Dana from the Possesstionista website finds the clothes and accessories that the contestants on the show wear. Because sometimes things are so cute you just want to know where it’s from!


Have a lovely weekend everyone! See you all Monday!

    1. Thanks Brenda! Haha I’m so glad you watch the bachelor too, and that you agree about Whitney! 🙂 Hope you’re having a lovely weekend as well! Are you going to be watching the Oscars?! I know I am!

  1. I love watching The Bachelor too- totally my guilty pleasure! I just discovered a website called so I can watch it the next day in London instead of a week later on That is one of the tough parts about being over here- everything is on SO late or not at all. Oscars will also be watched tomorrow!

        Hey girl! Just wanted to say you have a great blog! I enjoyed looking through it this morning! Also wanted to say that I couldn’t believe how mean people were being about Shay’s interview. 😁 I agree that the responses were super short, but I appreciated you taking the time to create the questions and post! Goodness, people can be so opinionated and hurtful!

        Anyway, just thought I’d share that I love what you’re doing! Have a great week!
