Itunes .99 Movie of the week:
ICYMI: Each week Itunes does a .99 rental! You can rent it and “watch now” giving you 24 hours to finish it, or “watch later” giving you 30 days with it. Once you start it though you have 24 hours to finish it!
This week’s movie: Nerve, starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco.
*This movie is not free with Amazon Prime, so this is the cheapest way to watch it at this time, if you missed it you can rent it from Amazon Prime here.
TBH, we haven't really been watching much of anything noteworthy because of the move ?. But I am thrilled to settle back into my binge watching ways in the next week!
Bachelor Finale Recap:
It seems like we've been waiting years for Nick search for love to come to a close… it has us skipping in the streets even! Oh wait… it has been years.
Frankly, I couldn't be more relieved to not see Vanessa on my TV for another week. *Please note, Vanessa this has nothing to do with you as a real person in real life, me shitting on you this season has everything to do with the character you were edited in to. You are probably lovely person IRL.
Raven (re)meets the Fam:
Raven met Bella and Nick's parents in Wisconsin, so I think it's fun to watch how easily they all vibe. It really does feel like happily ever after for this kids…
But then again, the fact that this scene basically last all of 2 seconds, you know Raven's going home.
Vanessa Meets The Fam:
Vanessa shares the story of their first date and it honestly looks like they are about to fall asleep they are so bored.
Vanessa talks with different family members and is basically the grim reaper talking about everything that's wrong with their relationship. Every time I feel like she couldn't say anything more off putting about their relationship, she finds something new! One minute she is saying she can't accept a proposal from him at the end of this, but then the next second she is saying:
It's really all quite exhausting to even watch.
When Nick and Vanessa say goodbye, it seems pretty clear she is going to win (not that it hadn't been clear). He is SO passionate in the way he grabs her and holds her every single time.
Vanessa & Nick 1-on-1
This date was legit so awk and lame.
They start off with a snowed covered trail ride on horses to Santa's magic cottage.
Santa is creepy AF and Vanessa seems like she is about to propose a three way. Can someone tell Vanessa Santa isn't real, just a perverted old man in a costume? Also where is Mrs. Claus to intervene on this situation?!?!
Finally they leave creepy Santa's house with their fertility gift.
That night Vanessa basically just cries. It seems SO clear what their future will look like together at this point (runnnn Nick runnnn!!)
Raven & Nick 1-on-1
This date literally made me SO happy. My heart was burstingggg watching these two crazy kids ice skate and dance their little hearts out.
As if the ice skating and throw back soundtrack to there rollerskating days (nothing quite gets my heart fluttering like Sixth Pence Non The Richer)
Could this date not be any more fun? Easy? Loving? Oh yes… in fact it can because Raven's awesome.
That night they are hanging out and Raven says, “Without too many details, how are you?” SHE CHECKS ON HIM! She is so selfless and so caring and I basically love her.
Plus, isn't this exactly what Nick's dad was just preaching to Vanessa? Is this not the most perfect woman?
Seriously, how do you have the most fun and relaxing day during such a stressful time and not think, “This is what forever is supposed to feel like?”
Nick picks yet another Neil Lane engagement ring…
…The Rose Ceremony
Raven steps out and my stomach feels so sick for her. I know she's going home. He can't even look at her:
It was awful watching her spill her heart out to him. I really don't get why he didn't give her the same courtesy Kaitlyn gave to him and stopped her. He just let her go on and on. It was so heart breaking.
She kept it together and was the epitome of a stoic and strong woman. I couldn't believe how composed she was.
Vanessa comes in looking like the villainous queen from a Disney movie. He doesn't even let her talk he is so excited to express how he feels:
She basically hysterically cries and says yes
After The Final Rose
Raven handles herself with such grace, which is to be expected since she is basically #goals at this point. Even when Chris asks her if she thinks they will last, it's clear she doesn't, but she says it so eloquently.
BEST NEWS YET: We may not get Corrine on BIP, but RAVEN AGREED TO BIP!!! YAYYYY
So while I am super sad Raven was dumped, I am thrilled we get more of her!
AND James Taylor (from Jojo's season) is asking her to meet him in Paradise! Which I am THRILLED about watching those two crazy kids together!
Next Vanessa comes out with Nick and it's basically like, “yeah we fight all the time, but we are good at communicating so we think this will work” *eye roll*
TBH I think they won't last for all the reasons Nick outlined on the season, but she is such a little limelight seeker that it may workout just fine.
They decide to bring out Rachel and start the bachelorette! WTF – I thought it was SO awkward and lame. I really hope this was NOT a good representation of her season. The guys were weird and it just felt totally uncomfortable to even watch.
What did you think of the finale? What are you hoping for in the Bachelorette or BIP?
