    New Site- Who Dis?

    BrideonBase is undergoing some major changes executed by yours truly. Since I don’t really know anything about web design or graphic art, it’s going to be a minute before I get things looking right here. I am excited about taking the blog in a new direction and all the new skills I will learn along the way; so many skills… I hope to be live by July 1, 2018!

    The Bachelorette: Becca Episode 3

    This episode should be subtitled “breaking body parts instead of hearts” because that is what happened. The episode opens with David making the most eggs in the tiniest skillet leading into the invitation for the group date. On location, Becca is chopping it up with some women from the previous season, including the one that was “missing” and Tia. When the men arrive, they are informed they will be pampering the women, which is arguably the weakest date I have ever seen on the show. Colton is stressed out Tia is there because of, you know, their history. Becca takes Tia aside to talk about Colton. Tia explains that Colton…

    The Bachelorette: Becca Episode 2

I am a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan simply because I like to participate in pop culture; not because I believe in this mess or could see myself anywhere near this scenario.

I initially thought Becca was very regular, but pretty. It was good to see the…

    Hi Ho, Hi Ho- Back to Work I Go!

    The funny thing about being given 12 weeks of maternity leave, paid, is that it means there’s a job I should return to. I actually found myself back at my desk two weeks early in order to save the last two weeks of leave for going home when my husband’s unit takes leave. When I envisioned having a child over the last 3 years I imagined I would be in a position where I was freelancing as a writer and able to stay home. When I envisioned having a child eight months ago, I thought I would just quit. I was so in denial about the fact I would have…
