Hmmm interesting that yet again, no rerun of the prior episode. I watched Storage Wars, a much better fake reality show and then thumbed through the blog. Oh look, it’s Matt and Amy’s 25th anniversary again! Didn’t they celebrate this on a special journey to California? About four months ago? When it wasn’t their anniversary or Amy’s birthday at all but they said it was and they were celebrating? Hmmm.
So we’re at the house and Matt is noting how their wedding anniversary is in September. Amy thinks her perm is awful. Amy also is still annoyed that Matt helped with nothing at the original wedding. Now we have cute home movies of the r thought young roloffs – I kinda like the perm. Amy notes how she never thought she’d have a normal life. The undertone is that Matt made a quick completely unthought decision while Amy was thinking no one would ever marry her.
So Molly and Jeremy are home, playing pool. Molly notes how they basically goofed off the last 25 years. Jeremy wants to make a movie of how they love mom and dad. Zach manages to make it about soccer. Jeremy’s glasses really aren’t attractive.
Matt tells Amy they’re going to have their own party apart from the whole endless roadtrip thing they did prior. Amy doesn’t want a formal thing. Matt wants some sort of bachelor thing. Matt notes how he and Amy have completely different friends. Amy thinks that if they can’t make the party work then they’re sunk. Amy also thinks appetizers are no biggie. Amy notes how difficult Matt is to work with. They basically bitch at each other for a few minutes.
Amy voices over how she’s fun and crazy. She hauls out the wedding gown. To be honest, I think she was a lovely bride. Now we’re at the wedding bakery. Matt notes how he didn’t bother helping her with wedding prep before and now is all “I’m a MAN! ME HATE NOT MANLY THINGS!” Matt, it’s a frigging cake. He keeps harping on a cake shaped like a barn.
Now they are making Sven take their photo in various places. Matt continues harping on seeing the barn in the photos. Sven runs off in a snit then comes back and now Amy and Matt argue again. Its pretty typical. Matt notes how they may not survive the anniversary. There’s more endless complaining and fighting and picture taking.
Apparently Zach still lives at home and they are all going to Spokane to see Molly. Amy admits she doesn’t plan well but also thinks Matt is super anal about schedules. They drive off in a new silver man and Matt makes a sexist comment.
So Matt notes how they are fighting and Molly will miss the party. Molly and Jake hug. Everyone hugs. Molly likes school. Molly seems to be a bit broken out face wise. So they wander about Whitworth. Amy has a ton of stuff for Molly’s room. The roommate is nice. There’s lots of fond memories from Amy and dorm stuff. Aw it’s a cool college area. Molly notes how 25 years is a big deal. There’s lots of home movies and fond memories.
So back to the farm. Matt goes on about how dirt and sand should be a traditional gift idea. Matt is annoyed that the boys aren’t supporting his idea to serenade her with rap music. Meanwhile Amy makes craft projects from her pictures. Amy notes how really, they kinda lived separate lives, which is kinda sad sounding although I see why it isn’t.
Matt bitches about Amy. Amy notes how Matt should be happy to wait for her. They argue about the potties and the tables. Sven yells at them. Matt wants to dump sand for some reason.
Meanwhile Jeremy and Zach break out the Kitchenaide. It’s clearly a staged scene. Caryn wanders in to say remove the haybales. Matt wants the haybales and sand! Amy wants flowers and photo collages.
Meanwhile the cake looks like something I made with school pal Jennifer when we were eight and my sister and Jennifer’s sister were 11. It looks bad but it tasted pretty awesome in the treehouse
Matt notes how party planning is not his thing. Not a great statement from someone running a wedding venue. Meanwhile Amy gussies herself up in her wedding dress and has her hair done. Amy notes how she barely knew Matt when she married him. It’s kinda sweet tho that despite the fights she says she still loves him. To be fair, Amy looks good in the dress.
So now we have a cake with a Precious Moments figurine on top. Matt is all wow the dress. Oh look, Audrey identified as Jeremy’s girlfriend with no words or commentary. Matt does some sort of rapping thing. I agree with Amy… he seems to have had a few drinks. Then they do the cake shoving tradition I don’t like.
Then we get the obligatory scene of the kids saying how cool mom and dad are. Then there’s a game like the newlywed show where they ask rude questions. Matt gets nothing right.
Oh hey, TLC has a show about twins married to the same man!
Back to the barn, what is Amy’s fav flower? She likes daisies! Amy professes to not know what the Mile High Club is. And apparently ALL the brides got branding irons and now Matt and Amy have one and Amy brands a piece of wood with the brand…. Now Jeremy brings in the red velvet cake. Amy notes its kinda horrid. Then Matt and Amy dance. Amy has moves.
This was way dull but I will be honest… my heart isn’t in it. That little town Sandy Hook looks so much like my home town… all those little kids… I’m more maudlin than anything else today.
