Last night on Jill & Jessa Counting On Season 3 Episode 3, Jinger Duggar and her sisters took it upon themselves to work on Jeremy’s pad.
Did Extreme Home Makeover: Duggar Edition go over well?
Those who watch Jill & Jessa Counting On online know by now that Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo in a magical wedding last year.
Now it’s time for more behind the scenes looks at the newlyweds’ lives, which are changing dramatically in such a short period of time.
As Jinger prepared to move from Texas from Arkansas, she reflected on what the move would mean to her life, and her family’s lives.
She felt it was “bittersweet,” which is an understatement.
“I am really not looking forward to the day when Jinger moves away,” Jessa Duggar said, lamenting that her sibling is leaving Arkansas.
“But I mean, I know what it’s like — you don’t want to put it off any longer than necessary, so we’re happy for her, sort of,” Jessa said.
Jessa also observed that unlike herself and Jill, “Jinger and Jeremy are much more ‘huggy’ and affectionate … but to each their own.”
As Jeremy started unloading the 11 enormous suitcases the Duggar kids brought to Texas, Derick Dillard’s health crisis was addressed.
Derick is experience a gag reflex from exercise, eating and a bunch of other triggers, so he was told that he may want to see a gastroenterologist.
Seems like a good idea. The doctor also said Jill’s arteries may have narrowed, so Derick’s health problems may not be unique to his family.
We just hope they’re both alright.
Back to the pregnant Jessa Duggar: Ben Seewald’s wife was 20 weeks into her second pregnancy at this point, and comparing it to her first.
“I haven’t had the opportunity to sleep as much this time around,” she said with a smile, for obvious reasons (young Spurgeon Seewald).
“It does make me wonder if this might be a girl,” she adds, and given Jessa’s baby bump selfies, a lot of fans seem to believe she is.
Of course, her fans have a 50 percent chance of being right no matter what, and we’ll all known in about a week when she gives birth.
Until then, she’s not telling.
In Texas, it soon became clear to Jeremy that he wasn’t going to have much say in terms of the decor and layout of his own residence.
Not when you marry a girl with 18 siblings. When she wants a “light and bright” color scheme, well, that’s what you’re ending up with.
Jer looking on in abject horror as Jessa found the ideal place for his favorite bookshelf – a closet – was a scene many men know well.
While it can’t be easy to see your belongings shoved into a closet to make way for someone else’s, Vuolo approached it very positively.
“What we may think is non-negotiable is a bit more negotiable than you thought,” Jeremy said, summing up marriage in a single sentence.
We kid, but love is give and take.
When you marry a Duggar especially. To say they “travel well” or “roll deep” is an understatement when you’re talking about this crew.
On the plus side, taskmaster older sister Jessa did allow Jeremy to keep his prized (faux) Rembrandt painting on display in public view.
Take what you can get.
