Life is for adventures

I'm sure most of you, if not all of you, have heard of The Bachelor. I'm not too sure when my love for this show began, probably somewhere around the first season however many years ago, but trashiness and all, it's kind of addicting. I love watching girls (or guys, depending on the season) embarrass themselves all in the name of love. It's reality T.V. at it's finest, I assure you. So, last fall, when my sister and I discovered a blog called, The Mormon Bachellorette{TMB,} it's no wonder we became hooked. A spin off of the actual show, Mormon style. The idea of a Mormon girl going on 30 dates in 30 days, in hopes of finding her "one true Mormon love," sounded so awkward, how could we not be hooked? Especially when we as the "audience" would have the viewing pleasure of watching her dates via "webisodes." I mean really, who wouldn't want to watch this, right? Well, surprise surprise, in her quest to find her E.C. {eternal companion,} she wound up engaged to be married in March. I give the girl props, I don't think I'd have the guts to do something like that. Although, I did do other questionable and gutsy things to win my husband over, but that's neither here nor there. With the first "season" being so successful, they decided to flip the cards and go Mormon Bachelor style. Which brings me to the here and now.

Over Christmas break, I received an email from my other sister, asking me how badly our sister would kill her if she applied for her to be on TMB. Following me? I thought about it, laughed, and said something along the lines that she'd be killed indefinitely if she did that. I then proceeded to tell her to do it anyway, because I thought it would be funny, never expecting anything to actually come of it. So she did! She also told me to never tell her that she applied for her to be on the show? blog? webisodes? So when she and I both received an email, demanding the culprit behind her application make ourselves known, I replied, with a big smile on my face saying, "It wasn't me!"

I think this is the point where I let my sister explain the rest...

Check out her blog, and then visit The Mormon Bachelor blog as well. I can assure you, it won't disappoint. I may be a bit biased, seeing that it is my sister and all, but isn't she just awesome? Rick Buck seems to think so! {you should leave a comment on the TMB blog saying so, too}

I love that you and Brittany were in on this...it's the most gutsy thing Brittany has ever done for Andrea. True sisterly love. I'm glad you told her to do it.

What an awesome story! They looked like they had a lot of fun doing that. I have heard of the Mormom Bachelor but had not really seen it. I got sucked in slightly. I know another one of the girls.

I tried to leave a comment, don't know if it worked.
That looked like so much fun! Great for Andrea! She looked so cute and fun!!! It would be neat if he picked her. They looked very nice together.
