Ali Week 5 - In Iceland and a Bachelor update

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Well, Kasey freaked out over the double date with Justin - showed Ali the tattoo and was sent home, literally LEFT on the top of a mountain while Justin and Ali left. It was clear that he was to nutty to be there. I still have NO idea what is up with his garbled talking. He never explained it.

Kirk and Ali had a wonderful 1 on 1 date! He opened up to her about a huge part of his life. She really likes him and he is becoming a quick favorite!

The previews for next week don't look promising and it is my guess that Frank really lets her down which is what I kind of suspected all a long.

For those of you who watched Prince Lorezo's season you may recognize lil miss Erica here. She is now on a show on VH1 called CUT OFF! It is for pampered Princesses whose family members are tired of their spending habits and have cut off their financial support and sent them to a life coach for re-learning. Well little miss Erica is still the lil trouble maker she was on the Bachelor.

And of course we all knew this couple wouldn't make it down the aisle! Yes, Jake and Vienna are no more! Aren't we all just heartbroken!

Well there is your weekly update on all things Bachelorette / Bachelor!

Carla Stewart


Carla Stewart’s writing reflects her passion for times gone by. She believed in Jesus, the power of the written word, and a good cup of coffee. She's a country girl living now in a mid-sized city with her engineering husband who just happens to be her best friend and biggest fan.She and her husband have four adult sons and delight in the adventures of their six grandchildren.


I grew up in the Texas Panhandle with two younger sisters and loving parents. Small town school. Great neighbors. Today, those small-town, fundamental things resonate within me -- the twang in people's voices, the art of being neighborly and just being a decent human being.

Growing up, I preferred the company of books over TV and playing outdoors. I imagined myself in many different careers, but given my down-to-earth raising, I settled on nursing. I didn't faint at the sight of blood and did well in science, so it seemed a natural choice.

I worked as a registered nurse off and on through the years, but primarily I stayed home with my four rambunctious boys and dreamed of the day when I could write the novels I loved to read. When our youngest son was in high school, I quit my job as a nursing instructor and settled in to pen my first novel. It's been quite a journey. One I wouldn't trade for anything.

I'm committed to writing the stories of my heart and am truly thankful to Jesus, my Savior, for allowing me this freedom. May all the glory be His.

Chasing Lilacs is her first book!


It is the summer of 1958, and life in the small Texas community of Graham Camp should be simple and carefree. But not for twelve-year-old Sammie Tucker. Sammie has plenty of questions about her mother's "nerve" problems. About shock treatments. About whether her mother loves her.

When her mother commits suicide and a not-so-favorite aunt arrives, Sammie has to choose who to trust with her deepest fears: Her best friend who has an opinion about everything, the mysterious kid from California whose own troubles plague him, or her round-faced neighbor with gentle advice and strong shoulders to cry on. Then there's the elderly widower who seems nice but has his own dark past.

Trusting is one thing, but accepting the truth may be the hardest thing Sammie has ever done.
