Today is a smorgasbord of information!
I was not able to post a recap of The Bachelor yesterday because I had a special post up about how I found the love of my life on eHarmony. If you missed it...hop on over and check it out because I'm giving away a $100 gift card and there are two chances to win.
Bachelor Recap in one paragraph
Belize is beautiful and Ben is clueless. Lindzi gets a date where they jump from a helicopter into a blue hole and then they put a message in a bottle. Emily's date finds the happy couple catching their own lobsters and talking about Courtney. Courtney gets her own date where she shows her true colors...but Ben doesn't see them. On the group date, after swimming with sharks, a few girls tell Ben to tread lightly and he takes it as a person challenge. Rachel and Emily go home. It's down to the final four...Lindzi, Courtney, Kacie B and Nicki.
Book Club Announcement
Today, Mimi and I are announcing our next book club selection! I have to tell you....I really enjoyed all of your comments and participation on the Facebook group. MWF Seeks BFF would not been as fun to read without it! This month we are reading......150 Pounds by Kate Rockland.
If you would like to be in the running for a copy of this book, all you have to do is leave me a comment saying I WANT THE BOOK. I will pick the winner on Friday night!
Here's the snopsis from Amazon:
A smartly-written novel by author, Kate Rockland, of two women starting at opposite ends of the scale--and finding compromise and friendship in their journey towards 150 pounds
In the fast paced life of blogging, two women stand out: Alexis Allbright, of Skinny Chick, and Shoshana Weiner, who writes Fat and Fabulous. Both have over five million loyal readers. Both are hungry for success. But the similarities stop there.
With over 100 pounds on the scale separating them, weight isn't their only difference. Alexis is a loner who is so bitchy the only person who can stand her company is her gay best friend Billy. She gives neurotic New Yorkers a run for their money with her strict daily workout routine, and weighing of food. Shoshana is Alexis’s opposite. Living in Jersey with rowdy roommates, she is someone who “collects friends,” as her mother puts it; and treasures a life of expanding circles...and waistlines.
When both appear as panelists on a popular talk show, their lives intersect in ways neither could have imagined. In turns comedic, heartwarming--and familiar to any woman who's ever stepped on a scale--Alexis and Shoshana realize they have far more in common than either could have possibly imagined, and more importantly, something to offer.
Come back tomorrow.....to hear all about a little altercation that I got into last week.
