Monday nights quite honestly may be my favorite time of the week because I am a part of Bachelor Nation and a devoted fan to these programs. Here is my opinion on the best couples that have come out of the Bachelor franchise and how their love stories began. Please note that this list does not include all the couples that are still together today, it is just a list of my favorites.

1. JoJo & Jordan

Joelle Fletcher, more commonly known as JoJo was first loved by Bachelor Nation when she was a contestant on Ben Higgins season 20 of "The Bachelor" in 2016. She was runner up on Ben's season and was then chosen to be "The Bachelorette" during the shows 12th season. After a devastating break up with Ben, JoJo was determined to find her Unicorn, her once in a lifetime love. For her that did not take long at all, on night one Jordan Rodgers (brother of football player Aaron Rodgers) stepped out of the limo and swept JoJo off her feet. He was given the first impression rose and was seen as a front runner from the very beginning. She chose him in the end and he proposed to her on the shows final episode in 2016. They are still together today and seem very happy and in love through their social media postings. They are currently still engaged with no announcement of a wedding yet.

2. Ashley & Jared

Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon really have been through it all. I like to call them my fairly tale couple and here is why. Ashley was on Chris Soules's season 19 of "The Bachelor" in 2015. Jared was seen on Kaitlin Bristowe's season 11 of "The Bachelorette" in 2015. They both were sent home during their respective seasons, but the two of them as fan favorites were sent to the summer spin off "Bachelor in Paradise," a show where fan favorite contestants can go back for another chance at love in Paradise. Ashley and Jared went on season two and three of "Bachelor in Paradise" where Ashley fell in love with Jared at first sight and only wanted to date him, but he constantly rejected her feelings towards him. They then became best friends after their appearances on the show. After nearly 3 years of "will they or won't they?" Ashley and Jared announced that they had started dating in May 2018. On June 17, 2018, while filming the fifth season of "Bachelor in Paradise," Ashley and Jared announced that they are happily engaged. They truly represent a love that if it is meant to be it will come back to you.

3. Kaitlyn & Shawn

Kaitlyn Bristowe was first seen on Chris Soules's season 19 of "The Bachelor" in 2015. Kaitlyn placed third on Soules season and as a fan favorite she was announced as one of two women who would be "The Bachelorette" in the upcoming 11th season. Bristowe and other chosen Bachelorette Britt Nilsson were to be voted on by the men on the first night of their season to determine who would be the only Bachelorette. Bristowe won the vote and eyes turned to Shawn Booth who was seen as a front runner from very early on because of how much he cared and focused on Bristowe, even with another potential woman in the picture. Bristowe's final decision came down between Shawn Booth and Nick Viall (season 21 Bachelor). Bristowe followed her hear and accepted the proposal from Booth. The couple has been happily engaged since 2015. No official announcement of a wedding has been made yet. They seem to be very happy in love via social media.

4. Carly & Evan

Carly Waddell and Evan Bass...probably the couple people never expected to end up together and here's why. Carly was first introduced to Bachelor Nation on Chris Soules's season 19 of "The Bachelor" in 2015. Evan, on the other hand, was first seen on JoJo's season 12 of "The Bachelorette" in 2016. Both were quirky contestants who Bachelor Nation loved. They were both seen on "Bachelor in Paradise." Waddell was seen on season two and three, where Bass was only on season three where he met his now wife Carly. If you watched, you know their relationship was rocky in the beginning and Waddell wanted nothing to do with Bass. After Evan faked a trip to the emergency room to spend more time with Carly, that's where she finally realized how much he really did care for her. After that event, this couple fell more and more in love with every date and through every rose. Carly accepted Evan's proposal during the season three finale in 2016. Their wedding aired on television as a part of the fourth season of "Bachelor in Paradise" on August 15, 2017. Carly and Evan announced they were expecting their first child on August 6, 2017. She was born in February 2018. Carly and Evan are still happily married with their big happy family that includes their daughter Bella and Evan's three other sons from a previous relationship.

5. Jade & Tanner

Tanner Tolbert was introduced on Kaitlyn Bristowe's 11th season of "The Bachelorette" in 2015 where he finished eighth. Both Jade and Tanner were Bachelor Nation favorites and were seen again on season two of "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2015. Jade and Tanner had an instant connection and they dated throughout the entire season. Completely in love with each other during their paradise journey, Tanner proposed to Jade in the final episode. Their marriage was televised as a special episode during the 20th season of "The Bachelor" in 2016. In March of 2017, they announced they were expecting a baby girl, and in August of 2017, their baby girl Emerson Avery was born.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
