Well. At least it used to be.
Because Monday night’s episode? It was just “eh”. Shrug and tilt.
The families all seemed sweet, nice, and pretty dang normal… which just makes for an “eh” night.
ABC, take note, “normal” does not good t.v. make.
Which I know you know. Obviously.
WHERE IS THE CRAZY DAD WITH THE ROOM FULL OF TAXIDERMY AND A RIFLE?
WHERE IS THE DATE AT THE MORTUARY?
WHERE IS THE MOM WHO HIT AND KILLED A BIRD AND THEN BURIED IT IN THE BACKYARD?
WHERE IS THE PSYCHOTIC BROTHER? I’m looking at you Des.
1st Hometown Date
I barely even notice the fact that they are jumping around and calling it polka (because know this…they are not dancing the polka, they are jumping)…..
I like your style Andi, I like your style.
AND ALL OF THEIR PICTURES ARE ON THE WALL.
On the wall.
In 8×10 frames.
First Andi talks to his oldest sister, and the length of sister’s dress is questionable. Showing a little too much upper thigh for my liking. I’m guessing a little too much upper thigh for her own liking too once she saw her segment. Then Andi and Nick’s youngest sister (I’m talking 10 years old) had a really cute exchange. She was rockin’ the polka dots, and she had the cutest little bob.
At the end of the date, Andi names all 10 siblings on the wall.
I was impressed.
I’m also quite sure that somebody must have been whispering the names into her ear piece, because who in the world could do that.
The skin…the boobs…..the tears…..
I. CANNOT. WAIT.
2nd Hometown Date
HOW CUTE are these two?!?!
I may or may not have added the straw hat myself.
I think the Polaroid is a nice touch.
And let me just say, Farmer Chris knows how to ROCK a flannel and a puffer.
and I immediately felt a kinship with her.
The family talks about how Farmer Chris used to only wear underwear on school days (seems fair) and how he sometimes toots. Thanks for that one sis.
She was speaking my love language.
be called into question at times too.
I LOVED the outfit and immediately knew I was going to recreate it.
So, I wore it yesterday (you might have seen me tease it on instagram HERE).
I didn’t have a plain navy boat neck, so I went with a stripe. And I totally dug it.
Coral+Navy+Converse+Simple Gold Jewelry
I liked it so much, I’m thinking it’s in one of my top 10 favorite outfits since I started the blog!
grey converse HERE / similar silver Michael Kors watch HERE
Kendra Scott necklace HERE/ pave bar necklace HERE / earrings HERE
Coral Tote c/o Gigi New York HERE ($50 OFF TODAY!)
Colorful tassel HERE
Okay…enough clothes…for now…..
They go to Nibble’s family home
Like you could put her in a family pic and NOBODY would be able to pick her out as somebody that didn’t share the same genetics as the rest of the people in the family. In fact, Andi looked more like a sister than the actual sister.
Nibbles is DEFINITELY a front runner.
Now listen, there was a lot of talk about Nibbles’ brother entering the NFL draft and how Andi knew that was a big deal but that she felt like Josh needed some attention too. But by the end of her visit Andi and the actual sister had a come to Jesus meeting about the fact that Josh would have his own family too and that his family would be his priority (high five real sister), and football brother even said he was all grown up and didn’t need Josh all the time anymore (high five brother).
All was right in Andi’s and Nibbles’ world by the end of the evening.
4th Hometown Date
Here they are strolling through Highland Park Village.
Want to get the look for yourself? I’m your girl!
multi-strand necklace HERE
LOVE LOVE LOVE this layered necklace! So easy and affordable!
LOVE. THIS. LOOK.
And really. CHECK OUT THE LAYERED NECKLACE! That is 1 necklace!
Don’t they look like a perfectly normal couple here?
Because he’s clearly a stripper just posing as a Sports Medicine Manager.
Whatever that is. Sounds like a made up job to me.
First I hid behind my hands…and then a pillow…and then behind the couch, and then finally under the kitchen table.
Because this happened.
Marcus could not hold back his stripper alter ego anymore. It had to break free.
And he took off his pants.
OH THE HUMANITY.
Although I must say, it seems as if Andi is a fan of the poorly timed strip tease.
Different strokes for different folks. No judgement here.
Wait. That’s a lie. There’s a little judgement.
Andi meets Marcus’s family, and it goes well.
And by “well”, I mean that it was incredibly awkward. It was obvious that Marcus did in fact grow up in a family that isn’t the “typical” family. This makes me sad for Marcus because he seems like a really great guy.
If I were Andi, Nick would have been on the rejection limo.
