First things first. I missed all but the last 10 minutes of the bach last night. What happened? Fill me in...
Besides this. I saw lots of this on insta.
I had a lot of ideas for a post today-next set of #jjdailyphotochallenge outfits, the recipe for the individual 7 layer dip from Monday's post, or even my crazy day yesterday, BUT my computer decided to freak way out last night. I'm calling in sick. I'll be back tomorrow with something good.
PS-I'm at the gym posting from my phone. Let it Go just came on so adios yesterday. So happy for a new day.

i had a few things going on today so i couldn't make any plans to watch with anyone. my roommate julia was in the living room working on some stuff. she's not a big bach fan so she had some great things to say.
i thought i was really going to love this show. i do love it, but it's not exactly what i expected. the dates are weird. we never really see what happens. the show feels totally disjointed. maybe it will make more sense when it's all over or when we know the point of the whole thing.
WHAT I HEARD...
"i said of course..hello"--sarah (maybe she can finally get out of the friend zone)
"what did i do wrong?"--michelle (you gave your rose to marquel)
"it's really hard for me to help you get ready for a date with a guy i'm interested in, but i'll make your braid look amazing" (classic michelle money. love it)
"oh michelle. i forgot about her" --robert (really? after 1 day you forgot about her?)
"there's something about the ocean that makes you vulnerable"--sarah (especially on the bach)
"say eggs all in 1 basket 1 more time"--roommate julia
"i respect what you and zack have"--cody "i respect what you've had for what like 5 days" --roommate julia
"no one is sure about anything"--roommate julia
"this date is more about me"--kalon (oh wow. here we go)
"i'm zero percent attracted to kalon"--sarah
"re fall in love with myself"--kalon (did he really just say that? the rest of the date later we realize he did in fact say and mean that)
blah blah blah--jesse "shes's an idiot"--julia about jackie
"i'm surprised there's not a camera on us"--ashlee (there are cameras everywhere. it seems like everyone knows that except ashlee)
" i work really hard on my character"--ashlee (except when she's saying crap about someone)
"i want to lay on the beach and work on our tans..."--cody
WHAT I SAW...on twitter
TO BE CONTINUED...ugh! (i wasn't prepared for that)
what did everyone think?

a couple of years ago, celsey and i had a weekly tradition (monday night tradish) of dinner and the bach. life has been crazy, and we don't live by each other anymore. monday night tradish kind of went away, but we brought it back this week. we started the night with a delicious dinner-asparagus chicken, zucchini, and olive oil noodles. i love love love watching the bach with celsey and her husband shawn (even though he pretends like he doesn't care).
WHAT I HEARD (so many good things watching with friends)
"is he wearing a wife beat?"--celsey (i'm not the only one that abbreviates everything. and yes, graham was wearing a wife beater)
"you are trouble" --chris about elise (we all know he is equal amounts of trouble)
michelle was talking and talking, but we were too distracted by her headpiece to really know what she was saying.
"really? you knew of me?"--marquel to danielle (he does realize he was just on the very most recent season of the bach right?!?)
the next few quotes from chris and elise definitely don't need any commentary from me
"it's a night date so stuff could happen"--chris
"chris is the perfect prince charming"--elise
"you showed me you were ready to take on anything"--elise (is she referring to her crazy self?)
"i'm ready to get down and dirty"--chris (please tell me i heard that wrong. except i'm pretty sure i didn't because he played it a couple of times to make sure)
"i want to be able to enjoy her behind closed doors"--chris
"chris is truly a gentleman"--elise right after chris' line above (i'm sure she really didn't say it right after, but the edit sure made it seem like it)
"she bugs the crap out of me. all she does is whine"--shawn about sarah (i really like sarah a lot, but she isn't really doing well on this show yet. it looks like things might get better for her next week)
"michelle is not put together. she's a hot mess"--celsey (we love her, but she's a total mess)
"i've seen girls fall this hard this fast. just not usually twice in 2 weeks)--sarah worrying about elise
"there are more wifebeaters on this show than i've ever seen. except at nascar"--celsey
"clare's dad is a turtle. not quite"--celsey
"i don't want to sound crazy"--ashlee right after telling graham she follows his instagram and really likes him
WORD TALLY (i cut out some words this week)
journey...0(this show is much less of a journey than the bach
WHAT I SAW (on twitter)
this show is a disast, but i love it. can't wait to see what happens next week. are you watching? did i miss anything?

nordstrom cardi|gap outlet dress|forever 21 leggings, target sandals
funny story-i went to dinner in day 12 outfit. the power went out during dinner. i spilled tomato soup while eating in the dark. naturally it landed on the white stripe. i came home and took the dress off to clean it. a guy comes to the door so i grab the first thing i could find. it happened to be this gingham shirt.
day 14...pool/beach looks (i was supposed to go to the pool, but the weather had other plans)
day 15...tropical (i had something else i could have worn, but my activities of the day-interviews and helping cater a wedding luncheon) didn't go with the schedule for the day
gap outlet cardi, target dress, ny&co shoes
