Will You Accept this Rose?

What girl doesn’t like the perfect love story? 

So of course, it’s only natural that I am a fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette.  It is completely over the top with the fantasy getaways and dates that raise all girls expectations and I love it.

And if in the end the relationship doesn’t work out, the break up’s can be equally as entertaining ... especially in the case of Jake and Vienna.

But when I found out who would be this season's NEW bachelor, I was completely uninterested.  Brad Womack.  The same guy who broke the rules and didn’t choose anyone at the end of his season. 

Granted half of my reasoning was based on the fact that I was still madly in reality-love and heartbroken that Chris Lamton (Yes… I know his last name) the runner up from last season wasn’t the new bachelor… um HELLO ABC? Have you seen him?

Anyways, after receiving several text messages from my girlfriends counting down the minutes till the premier, I just “happened” to stumble upon Monday night’s episode of the Bachelor.  I figured five minutes wouldn’t kill me and I could still go on protesting this season. 

But within the first couple of minutes stupid Brad Womack charmed the pants off me (figuratively speaking). 

I got wrapped up in his handsomeness and by some of the women's touching stories (Team Emily) that it wasn’t utill two hours later I realized what had happened...

I not only watched the entire first episode but I knew right then and there, every Monday night, for the next couple of months, I will be tuning in.   

Ugh ABC….. Well there goes 2 hours of my Monday nights
