I think that should go without saying by now, but just in case it doesn't...
I do miss them.
I think a little part of me always will.
I guess it's true what they say. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
No eyebrow with it's own brain.
That being said......here's my recap.......
HOMETOWN DATE #1:
AshLee is VERY pretty. However, she dressed like a lumberjack.
Don't you know you are supposed to be helping me fill Selma's void?
AshLee and Sean had a picnic outside and she openly declared her love for him. Again.
I really like Ashlee, and clearly she really likes Sean.
Look at her in the middle pic gazing up at him.
This girl is clearly smitten.
After their picnic, they headed home to meet her parents.
Oh, and in case you didn't know, she's adopted.
I might have rolled my eyes.
Okay...I did roll my eyes.
I actually really like AshLee a lot...but my eyes just automatically rolled anyway.
They do that sometimes. Just ask the hubby.
your common sense, your ability to say "no!", and probably your outermost layer of skin.
Ashlee was all, "We rolled around in the sand.!"
And Ashlee's daddy was all.....
Back to the date.
Sean has 1:1 time with each of Ashlee's parents.
Ashlee's dad talked about meeting Ashlee for the first time and how he fell in love with her on site.
You guys...it was seriously heart-warming.
And if he doesn't pick AshLee, maybe he can just break the rules and pick AshLee's dad.
They could hang out in one of their beautiful backyards together, talk about being a pastor/reverend, and talk about how much they love their families.
I'm telling you...they are a match made in BFF heaven.
HOMETOWN DATE #2:
Seriously impressed with Sean's fish catching skills. Those are some slippery suckers.
Check out the sister on the right's expression. This is what she looked like immediately after Sean asked the settling down question.
That face says "NO WAY JOSE".
Thanks a lot sisters.
Still....I'll say it again....there was some serious chemistry on this date, and it was fun to watch!
And I really liked the coral shirt and necklace that one of the sisters was wearing. So there's that.
May I say that she's looking better than ever! Don't you agree?
(More on this look later.)
Her little baby voice shouting out military orders might have made me smile once or twice.
The worst part about it was that Sean had to sport a mock turtleneck.
I wonder if the girls are asked to jump up and mount a producer?!?
but these girls do it all the time, and it looks like they've practiced.
Payback is a B Sean.
Des's "boyfriend" comes in, professes his love, makes Sean clinch his fists (with a dramatic close-up) and then they shout out, "Ha ha! Just kidding Seanie!"
Sean was a super good sport.
I think her brother single-handedly took her down.
Listen up Nate:
We understand Sean is cuter, better built, smarter, and way nicer than you (and that might make you uncomfortable).
But good news dude, he's not trying to date your girlfriend,
he's trying to date your sister!
So, CALM THE FREAK DOWN.
"I'm sorry that I gave you that opinion, but that's not me, at all."
I don't know what Nate was trying to prove, but if it was that he is a total and complete jackwagon, then he did a bang up job.
And kick him in the crotch.
Too bad Tierra is supposedly engaged. I'm thinking Nate and Tierra could have been a good fit.
Bye Des. I'll miss you.
Desiree, Sean, and the rest of America
Now...before we leave...I want to highlight Lindsay's look.
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that Pinterest has convinced us that wearing black and brown together is no longer a fashion no-no. In fact, it is AWESOME!
Exhibit A, B, and C
cream shirt, black leggings/jeans, and brown boots.
I thought she looked great.
I mixed black and brown for the first time back HERE in the summer, and I really liked the look.
Now I do it all the time.
I think the easiest way to pull off black and brown together is to wear black clothing
with brown accessories.
And I think it's often best to go with a lighter brown vs. a darker brown for optimum contrast.
I promise you that you might feel weird the first time you do it...but you will LOVE it.
And it's not just for fall and winter, it's for summer too (see below)!
Actually, I think the summer outfit would look even better with brown flip flops or wedges.
More contrast = better!
if you want to try to rock the black and brown look yourself (and you totally should because all of the cool people are doing it), see below for some options.
Click on a pic if you're interested.
Brown Purse Options:
varying price levels...the left one is on SALE!
Black Clothing Options:
love ALL of these options
Brown Boot Options:
REALLY digging the wedge boots on the left. A LOT. And they are ALL on sale.
Now is a great time to buy boots.
The middle one is my absolute fav. LOVE the color and love the detail on the wedge. They would look so great with a black dress, black short shorts, black skinny jeans, EVERYTHING! They would also look perfect with everything else in my closet. Yes, I think I need them.
So....we've learned 2 very important lessons today:
1) Brown and black together are awesome.
2) Never invite your stupid brother to dinner to meet your boyfriend on national t.v.
