Can I be honest with y’all for a couple minutes? If you read the title of this post, I’m sure you have an idea about what I am going to say… I love “The Bachelorette.” As in, I have watched “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” from the start (circa spring ’02 when Alex broke Trista’s sweet heart). I am not sure if I should call the show my guilty pleasure because I don’t feel guilty when I watch. It’s the best show. Is it OK to call “The Bachelorette” your favorite hobby? (I’m asking for a friend, of course.)
With that confession out of the way, I’m excited to share my plans for this season. My living room has been home to many watch parties over the years, and we’re all gearing up for another “The Bachelorette” season premiere! When I met my mom for a day at The Spa at WinStar a few weeks ago, I got really nostalgic about all the watch parties we’ve had. She threw the best watch parties for the first few seasons when my sister and I were in high school. “The Bachelorette” is a family affair.
Next week, I am pulling out all the stops to make this the best premier party yet. I created a bracket with all the guys’ names and faces, and I already have ten friends committed to playing in our bracket challenge each week. Think fantasy football but with a lot more drama, dresses and romance. Plus, Rachel is such a babe– she’s from Dallas (right in WinStar’s backyard!) and a successful attorney. We can’t wait to see if she finds love!
I’m starting to plan decorations and food for the party too. Red wine, champagne, cookies shaped like roses and a lot of chocolate are all on the menu so far. We’re ready to kick off season 13!
