5 reasons I won’t do the bachelor.

believe it or not, I have never watched the bachelor. I may have seen 5 minutes of an episode the very first season. but c’mon, does that count? no. unfortunately, I feel it is my duty, as a born + raised iowan, to watch chris soules. he’s from a tiny iowa town, one hour away from the one I grew up in. [*it’s important to note, my iowa town is way bigger. we’re talking almost 70,000 people bigger]. and by watching one full episode, I was inspired to write ..

5 reasons I won’t do the bachelor.

[besides the fact that I’m married].

and by “do,” I mean the show. not the man, for those of you with your mind’s in the gutter.

1. oh, the limo introductions. 99.8% of them make me cringe. like crawl under the covers + hide. so awkward. and I would totally be within that category of awkward intro’s.

2. I’d be the token drunk girl on the first night. 30 girls in 1 hour, fighting for 1 man’s attention. given mere hours [or an hour, does anyone really know?] to make a strong impression + earn a rose. it could just be me, but uncomfortable situations tend to increase my alcohol intake. this situation would top that list.

3. the same reason I was never in a sorority, I could not live with that many girls in one house. I don’t know that for sure, because I never tried. but I could imagine it’d be a struggle .. #CloggedDrains.

4. who likes sloppy seconds thirds fourths fifths sixths? and so on.

5. moving to a farm in iowa. hell no! as previously, mentioned I am an iowan. I had a short stint spent living away, but I came back because I truly love it here. I support + appreciate iowa’s farmers; they truly do feed the world. but if my husband, who I love more than any of those girls will love the bachelor anything in the world, told me we were moving to a 6,000 acre farm with the nearest town having a total population of 400 ..I would say “no thanks!!”. prince farming may be easy on the eyes, but the miles of nothing but corn + soybean fields aren’t, for long. best of luck to the ladies of hollywood, chicago + D.C. ..you’re in for a rude awakening.

who is watching the bachelor tonight?

if you do, let’s talk about it @LLinaBC.

gone country.

for the past two days, [J] & I have been in my hometown. 10 of my family members [aunts, uncles, cousins] are here, from colorado & california. in anticipation for a huge family reunion this weekend.

we were so happy to spend some quality time with them.

dare I say our activities weren’t typical for us but extremely stereotypical for iowans.

my grandpa has a farm. that he does not live on. but rather, he works on classic cars [& tractors] there. the kids love going to run around [& drive the tractors]. so off we went ..

to play hide & seek in the corn fields. drive tractors. wander through the barns. and embrace our iowa stereotype.

guys can be so creative when they’re bored. with a baseball bat & a lot of athletic tape they made a gun look-a-like. it’s the only kind I’m willing to touch.

one of my cousin’s [from southern california] asked me if [J] & I live on a farm, surrounded by corn fields? 

these pictures only encourage the “every person in iowa lives on a farm” fib. but we don’t.

on the contrary, there are a lot of farms. I was just not raised anywhere near one. I get my sweet corn from the grocery storeor the farmer’s market. also according to my slightly irritated legs, I may be allergic to corn husks. and I’m petrified of insect close encounters, which there are many on a farm.

I’m a city gal, who can get down on a farm.

every once in awhile.

happy middle of the week wednesday.

[tomorrow’s a holiday: go find your red, white, & blue].
