I can’t believe it… but it is true! This blog is 10 (ten!) days old, and already has (as I start this post) 5,288 views! Thank you so much all for reading.

I also cannot believe the look back at Ashley’s series of the Bachelorette is nearing its end! Although it means this blog might actually get some posts about other subjects (Yes I do have other things in my life, I swear!).
Come, let’s get on this “Overnight dates” episode ride:
*** Episode 09 – Overnight dates ***
I will start, as often, with a look at the location, and in this case, a huge WOW! Fiji is amazing!
Let’s continue by looking at the fashionable (and not so) looks we came across in this episode!
Before we move on to our cupcakes, I must make 1 reference to Ash’s date with Ben: as they enter the suite, she says (and I quote) “This is where we’re gonna sleep (puke – that’s me not Ash!), but it is opened to the pool too”. Sounded a lot like an estate agent giving a tour! Nothing that can be compared to her “Looks like we’re home” to JP… Am I right or am I right?
Finally, skipping over the whole Ryan thing, JP arrives… general sigh of mixed joy and jealousy as he embraces Ashley:
Regarding the plane trip, I just loved how much Ashley was hanging on to JP when scared, and how relaxed he made her…
The one thing I really liked about the way that day was edited is the fact that there was nothing seedy or overtly sexual about it, unlike the scenes with Ben on the boat and in the pool. Instead, what we got was tenderness, natural passion, progression of the relationship and a whole lot of love… Main example is that we see JP with the bottle of sun-cream in front of a stripping Ashley, and it was all about them being together, none of that (immature!) oiling up and innuendos! Well done ABC! There is so much more to a relationship than kisses and canoodling, and we also see that in the evening part of each dates, where the touchy kissy but not much talky Ben date really pales in comparison with the relationship defining talk, looks and tenderness of JP’s…
(And, I do not think I am a pervert, but I would soooo love to know ‘nothing’ happened between Ben and Ash… a girl can dream!)
And on that note, let’s get through our photo gallery, with, I apologize in advance, some interruptions!
And of course, I must include JP and Ashley’s favorite pic of that day, provided to us by JP himself 🙂
Moving on to the dinner part of the evening, and JP hearing about the “surprises” and his reasons for not being 100% ready to commit… (didn’t buy that one minute BTW, think ABC just had to make sure there would be enough progressions left for the final eps!)
God this man is handsome… (oops! Did say that aloud?)
I do not want to cheapen that evening and whatever happens once the cameras left, so i will simply finish with a couple of great pics from the fantasy suite.
Thank you for watching/reading, and talk to you soon. Remember #BeHappy!
