The Bachelor: Special Edition Starring Fifty

Look at these two gorgeous girls! That there in the front is Nina (she was born in the good ol' U.S.A. so I've got a bit of a sweet spot for her) and behind her, is her little sister Lily. A few weekends ago, they came to Le Petit Village for a date with Fifty (it was like one of those two on one dates on The Bachelor minus the bitchiness... actually, it was double the bitchiness if you know what I mean). But because neither of them have a drivers license, and walking from Salon-de-Provence to The LPV would take forever, they brought their parents with them, which was great because their mom just happens to be one of my favorite French people, La Professeur (you might remember her from this time or maybe that time).

And as if I wasn't already chuffed enough what with an afternoon with my friend La Professeur and all, she came baring gifts... Starbucks ready to brew packs. My dream finally came true... I was drinking Starbucks in The LPV. It's a pretty big deal.

I made Tex-Mex (La Professeur spent a stint in Austin so I thought she'd appreciate some guacamole and pico de gallo) and we watched a rugby match (of course we did). But mostly, we chaperoned the date, and tried to guess who Fifty would give the final rose to...

{a rare moment of calm}
{yes, Lily is wearing panties}
{first kiss} 
{take 1,837,447} 

It was a close one to call... when I saw Fifty and Lily kiss I thought she was a shoo-in for the final rose, but as the day went on, an initially shy Nina began to follow him around more and more staking her claim. 

But then in a surprising move, that nobody somebody coming, 
I got the final rose, because I'm his mommy,
 and mommies give the best cuddles.

  1. I so miss our dogs, I feel like I should adopt everyone elses! We want to travel though and it would just not be fair. Fantastic photos, have a great week Diane

  2. Hi Sara! I nominated you for a Liesbster award! I hope you enjoy it!

  3. obviously I just followed Fifty on Facebook. (my mom wants to know where his name came from. I had no answer?)

  4. So glad you ended up with the final rose on that one! ;)

  5. Aww, Fifty is the best! I can understand that every woman wants to have him! :)

  6. Television with their huge appetite for reality shows might just have found their next idea here on your blog. Have a great weekend.

  7. Haha, this post is adorable! Congrats on getting the rose ;)

  8. Hah . . . Fifty is too used to the human species and didn't understand?

  9. I can totally see the family resemblance between the 2 sisters... Most boys prefer their mammies anyway ;o)

  10. Love your dogs!! -Visit My blog

  11. Lily and Fifty's kiss... so cute!
    Have a good (warm!) weekend!

  12. Are these dates like, make little fiftys dates?

  13. Nina and Lily are absolutely beautiful!!! I love dogs and this post just made my morning.

  14. Gorgeous!!!
    Good for Fifty. I'm unable to find a Maltese for My sweet Strike.
    I want an invitation to the wedding :)
    Bisous, Babi

  15. How cute is this?! You gave me a good chuckle and I have the biggest smile on my face right now! xo

  16. Now, I hope fifty realizes you're already taken, or else his poor little puppy heart just might break in half!

  17. A fun post about good companions!

  18. MOST DRAMATIC DOGGY BACHELOR finale EVERRR! I was blown away by his final choice!

  19. This is why dogs are so much more fun than cats. I could never coordinate play dates with a pack of cats, surely one would end up totally dead.

    Dogs may be bitchy, but cats are - wait for it - super catty! Ah. ha. ha. ha.
    Couldn't resist.

    Nina is a really beautiful dog, btw.

  20. Swoon. I have two boxers, including a 4-mo old girl named Callie. They're the greatest.

  21. Doggy smiles are the best thing ever.
