Monday is most likely going to be the biggest night of my life. You think I am being dramatic, but really I am just being honest. It’s not every day you have the best bachelor in all of bachelor history [bless you Ben Higgins] choosing between the TWO women that he is madly in love with. Have I mentioned that Ben grew up a mere 30 minutes away from me yet? No, of course I’m not the tiniest bit mad that we didn’t meet in our younger years, duh. With the finale upon us I have been in full out prep mode for the finale viewing party that my girlfriends and I are having. Obviously I have been staying up at night battling between Lauren and JoJo because who wouldn’t? Oh right, those with a life. Regardless, I think I have determined that it has to be Lauren right? Right. THE MAN CRIED WHEN TALKING ABOUT HER. I think the only time Shawn has cried when talking about me was after he saw my credit card statement and it wasn’t necessarily a good cry if you know what I mean.
Alright, so back to the big finale party that you are either hopefully hosting or attending – lets get down to the basics of what you’re going to need.
For starters – food. And not just any food, but the fancy kind that you know all of the females are getting to eat every day in their huge bachelor mansion. Not that any of them actually eat it but you know, we do. And by “we” I mean all of those who aren’t in a bikini on national television week after week. Pretty sure that includes all of us. Because you and your girlfriends are going to be glued head first to the TV, you don’t want anything difficult to eat. Stick to the finger foods such as a fabulous meat and cheese tray complete with nuts, fruits, breads and the like.
Last but not least, the decorations or extra touches. What would a bachelor viewing party be without roses? No party at all, that’s what. To really make it personal, I printed out pictures of Ben himself to cut out and use as coasters. Now that’s a face you hate to cover, am I right ladies?
And there you have it – time to sit back, sweat, cry, “awwwww”, and anything else that may happen to you during the finale. Happy bachelorin’ it up.
