JordAsh – “The Looks” part 4 – Ep 8 HTD

I know, it’s been a while since I did Episodes 6 & 7, as I wanted to focus on my Black & White video project (which, in case you haven’t seen it, is here:

OK, let’s go on. The last 3 episodes focus on the last 2 men, so we get a lot more screen time for our JP. Therefore, I will do 1 post per Episode + 1 for AFTR. Hope that’s OK with you 🙂

*** Episode 08 – Home Town Dates ***

First off, I loved this episode, and so many things in it: JP’s mum, Roslyn, JP’s excitement at Ashley meeting his parents, and of course, the “Can’t hide this feeling” moment, to name but a few. So here we go on our nostalgic journey through this episode!

Roslyn… How beautiful does this place look!? Here are a couple of pics:

I found hilarious that one of the first shot of the JP Hometown visit was of…. his shoes. I guess ABC made a point to show us that they weren’t (too) bad this time LOL. But could have done better 😉

Staying on the fashion, I loved Ashley’s outfit, relaxed, cool and effortlessly beautiful! (And her shoes matched JP’s!)

Onto our favorite Cupcakes, I loved how happy they were to be together, and how comfortable they looked. Noticed, as usual a lot of hand-holding and caressing 🙂

Moving on to the star of the show, you guessed it, HotSkates! 🙂 (although the Lasagna may have something to say about that!). We all love this bit, and the song that go with it, but I also love the simple intimacy and comfort we saw between Ashley and JP, before, during and after the skating.

I think another moment that really showed how comfortable they already were, was JP’s fall (it was hilarious and thankfully painless, except maybe for his ego 🙂

Watching it again to get the screen grabs, I couldn’t help laughing at JP’s “I just didn’t want to make you feel bad”! Yeah, right!

Now, onto the musical part of the episode 🙂 You know what I mean. So for this, I will stay silent and let you hum our favorite tune (sadly my blog does not come with Audio!) while scrolling through the romantic pics below. Enjoy…

After the skating, they had an adorable picnic, including “classy” paper cups and wine. And a chat on Jp’s joy at introducing Ashley to his parents, as well as (again…) mentions of his past GF.

I was particularly touched by how genuine he looked (and sounded – again I hate the no audio on the blog…) when he welcomed her to his home:

… and at how excited Ashley looked at the idea of meeting them.

One of the funniest scene was when Ashley teased JP on his age “Since you’re just a little bit older”… I think this is probably a running joke between them!

Quick mention of the Ex (too often in the whole series I think, a bit like Mr. B&*$”^), just to say that I love the patience and understanding I saw in Ashley’s eyes when JP was talking about it:
Ashley Hebert - JP Rosenbaum Home Town date - Ex-girlfriend 1
Ashley Hebert - JP Rosenbaum Home Town date - Ex-girlfriend 2

And later, when he tells her he is miserable without her, I could have cried. I actually remember I went to kiss my (non-Bachelorette watching) husband straight away… he was baffled and happy 🙂

On to the Rosenbaums‘ abode 🙂 And what a place. First, how amazing is that tree???

And second, how amazing is that lasagna??? (Almost picked it as my featured image for this post, but figured the glitter ball was more relevant!)

Meeting the family was amazing, only down was that we did not get to see Ashley having a chat with JP’s Dad Peter, or seen his thoughts on her. I would have liked that. But I do love JP’s mum, Ilene, I think she is GAS! (not sure we say this in the U.S, but it’s a cool word in Ireland!) Another really cute, almost missable, detail was the hug between JP and his brother Roy… Spot the hand on JP’s shaved head? Love it!

Another really cute detail… notice on the image below how JP is leaning towards Ashley almost at the same angle as his dad is leaning towards his mum?

And how ‘cutiful’ (my 4 year-old son’s favorite word) is JP getting all embarrassed and shy…

OK, I am just going to finish up with a few pics of Ilene meeting with each of our Cupcakes :), as well as a couple for Roy and JP.

    Once again you did a great job. I loved when his mom brought out the mullet photo. He looked so embarrassed. And we do you GAS, but we would have said “she is a gas”. At least in Canada.
