We realized that we’ve been so caught up in the news of Emily Maynard as the Season 8 Bachelorette and Ali Fedotowsky’s new man, that we’ve forgotten to check in and see how Bachelor Pad 2 lovebirds Holly Durst and Blake Julian are doing.

Well, they’re doing just FINE, we’ll have you know. Better than fine, in fact!

First of all, Holly’s children’s book, Chocolate Socks, is out next month. On February 2, she tweeted: “I just got to preview my book #ChocolateSocks :) It looks great! It now comes out next month! I'm so excited!!!!”

A few days earlier, she gave us an update on her upcoming nuptials to Blake: “What a great day #WeddingPlanning with @TOAST_events! I even got to try on my wedding dress again!!”

So are you wondering what to get the happy pair? Well, lucky for you, Holly revealed where they’re registered: “We finally registered for the wedding at Bed Bath & Beyond. I'm pretty sure we scanned a lot in the 'beyond' areas :) haha.”

We’re beyond excited for the two of them!
