Big News--Bates Fan File


Happy Saturday! I (Ellie, your faithful blog author) have a fun surprise for my readers.

Today marks the start of an exciting new partnership between myself and UP. The network is introducing a video series called the Bringing up Bates Fan File and has asked me to host.

Following each new episode of the show, I’ll have a new Fan File video to share with you all. I’m thrilled about this partnership and eager to show you the first installment (below).

  5. Love the bates family. I try to never miss an episode. Love your blog also. Was a little disappointment with York's attitude on cake and other wedding plans. Maybe it was nerves but rudeness is not a Bates.

  7. Very nicely done, congrats on your new gig with UP. We don't get UP, so I hope you will continue with the Blog as well. As far as your question if I could plan a Bates-sized wedding in just three months, my answer is NO. But our weddings are very detailed with appetizers and drinks, sit down 3 or 4 course dinner and dessert, open bar, speeches, hiring a DJ for dancing, 11pm buffet of foods and desserts and coffee/tea, and this all requires very early reservations for these services. Planning is usually minimum ONE YEAR here.

  8. Congratulations, Ellie, on your new gig! You did great on the video above, and I can't wait to see future ones. Also can't wait to see your comments about going dress shopping with Tori -- her dress was beautiful! -- Meg

  10. I’m a little confused. What will the fan file be about? I watched the video but Ellie just did a synopsis of the last episode. I thought the fan file would be more? Or will it only be a synopsis of that weeks episode? Sorry if I missed something....

  13. Hi! Good luck with your new gig. I I love the Bates family and I am excited to have another format to learn more about them. IIcome from a community where it is very common to plan very large weddings during the time-frame of a three month engagement. It is a vet hectic time, and sometimes not everything gets done in time. It is extra stressful because the bride needs to buy a Wig as well, because women cover their hair in our community, after they are married. I think there are benefits to a long engagement and to a short engagement, and I prefer when the community tradition is that each couple or family makes the choice that works best for them. Nathan's Lake party sounds fantastic. Men need their clubs. I have not posted in a while because I figure they have a lot of fans, so do they need another comment? I watched the pre-show YouTube clip with Erin and her husband and the parents discussed how much encouragement they get from fan feedback. I love their show. It is a blessing and inspiration to watch and how they invite us to learn from and be a part if their lives. I live in Israel and I love meeting with Christian visitors and tourists, sharing and showing them the Holy land. If I they decide to come I would love to help them prepare their trip and join them on some of their explorations and travels. Avishagbatshunam@gmail.com
    I also have a blog about Israel, the Bible, religion, recipes, culture and health science. Theshunamshindig.blogspot.co.il.
