First let me just say that Wes HAS to go. Soon. In the previews it seems like she does eventually come to her senses about him and starts questioning his reasons for being on the show in the first place...so hopefully it does end up that he leaves. I think we may have to endure him for a few more episodes, though.
Next, I was LOVING Micheal and Tanner in the car, their enthusiasm seriously had me rolling on the floor, and I came to love Michael a little more from that experience. I was so happy that Jillian heard them cheering on the phone because I think that made her like them both more. I do have to say I was laughing at Tanner calling Juan feminine. Um, pot calling kettle black in a MAJOR way! But I am glad that he and Michael are still around because I enjoy them both.
Jake, Oh my. He is darling, right? There was quite a bit of cheesiness in the air on their fabulous date, but I have to admit I think he is genuine and could be a good match for her. A really good match!
I was happy to see that there is a good attraction between her and my man, Kiptyn, although he didn't get much face time on this episode.
Dave needs to lay off his steroids or something, I could not believe how worked up he was over Juan. Seriously, buddy, get a life. He could focus all that energy on Jillian and take it all, probably, but instead he is caught up in obsessing over Juan not taking the shot. Whatever.
Speaking of Juan, he drives me nuts. But apparently not as nuts as he makes Dave. Sheesh.
I felt really sorry for Brad when she chose Wes over him. And what was up with everyone watching their alone time? That was just mean.
Apparently ripping off your clothes and jumping into water worked well for Mike but was a complete flop for poor Brian. Brian really did NOT seem like her type, though, so I am fine with it. In fact, I was happy to see Julien go, too.
MOURNING over the fact that she let Mathue go, although I do think that there are other guys better suited for her, AKA Kiptyn, Sasha, Jake....LOVE them all.
So there's my quick recap, hopefully my internet is fixed soon!!!

Moving on. As per request (Candra and Adrienne) here is the info on the hair and blouse. My hair was easy, I just teased it up after I had curled it, then I kind of brushed it to the side. Then, started from the other side, I twisted it like a sideways french twist, sticking bobby pins in as I went. Once it was all on the side, I put a ponytail holder in and then proceded to twist pieces into a little side 'do, securing it with bobby pins. Easy, easy. :)

I have to admit I was super nervous about what Mike would say when I wore it. I envisioned clown comments of some sort, but he was actually very kind about it. What a good guy. I put a short cardigan over it, also from Charlotte Russe, but I can't find it online.
Thanks for the nice comments! :D

DARLING, right? Well, unfortunately I only have about 1/3 of the thickness of her hair, but I was determined to recreate it anyway. Disclaimer: Not only is it super uncomfortable to take picture of myself, it is also incredibly difficult!
What do you think?
I think I should have left more hair out in some cute curls by my cheek, like she has it, but I need another head of hair to accomplish what she does. ;)
My friend Nancy blogged about taking pictures of the back of your hair, and how it would become addictive. I have to say that my arms were aching so bad by the time I finally got a decent shot of it...it is much harder than it looks! (Plus my camera weighs a million pounds!)

Panera. I cannot tell you how much I miss my precious Paradise Bakery. For me, Panera does not even hold a candle. And yet, we keep going back. *Hoping* that perhaps their food has gone from average to delicious overnight. Boo.
Running. Why, why, why can't I like to run? I know if I ran that the pounds would start melting off, but as soon as I break into a jog, I am already ready to quit. I really, really don't like it. At all.
