{ RICK & AUBREY }


Oh Ricky! (Don't worry, he told me I can call him that.) What a fun date we had tonight in Hollywood! Think back with me to Date #2 and you'll remember that for our first date Rick took me to the happiest place on earth, exposing me to his "Rick the Happy Disneyland Goer" side. So when planning tonight's date, I decided to do something that would expose yet another one his "many layers." While I tossed around ideas that might bring out "Rick The Hippie," "Rick The Poser," or even "Rick the Meditative Ninja," in the end I decided to stick with just Rick Buck. One personality is enough for me!

We started things off with some dinner at the famous Roscoe's House of Chicken 'N Waffles on Sunset Blvd. I know it sounds like such a strange combo, but trust me, it's good stuff.  Those who have eaten here know it's a classic case of opposites attract! Uh-oh, I feel a metaphor coming on...Is Rick the chicken to my waffle? It's usually the unlikely pairings that end up being oh-so-good together! You like that? I thought so.

After dinner we made our way over to the Pantages Theater on Hollywood Blvd where Rick and I saw Phantom Of The Opera together for the first time. I thought the show was absolutely amazing! The Phantom did a phenomenal job and the set was incredible! I was entertained the whole night through. And the company wasn't too bad either.  The theater ended up being quite cold so it was nice to cuddle up to a warm body. I could tell Ricky didn't mind.

Before heading home we decided to just walk around Hollywood and Vine for a bit and check out the stars. No, not those stars, the Hollywood Walk Of Fame stars!  As we walked we gabbed some more about the show, and then, right there on the street corner, Rick kissed me for the first time!  Well done Rick. That makes for 3 firsts for me tonight: eating at Roscoe's, seeing Phantom Of The Opera, and kissing Rick Buck.  Maybe we'll make it 4 and bring him back to meet the family this Saturday on the Final Date.  Wouldn't that be amazing...

How are you ever going to decide!? I thought Dane and Larry were my favorites... but I love Todd and Rick too!

Rhonda said...

Hey Ricky you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind! Hey Ricky! Rhonda Gunnell

Jenny Robbins said...

I agree with jeanine! Haha. Also, I thought, if he doesn't try to kiss her I'm gonna be upset. AND HE DID!! Well done sir. Love watching this date. Aubrey, I'm so glad I'm not in your place. I don't know how you'll ever choose among such amazing guys.

Lindsey said...

Um, I might be the only one, but it looks like AUBREY instigated THAT kiss! Just sayin'.

Betsy Hite Reddoch said...

Forget all the bachelors and date Roscoe's instead! ROSCOE'S!!!!

Emily Sue said...

As a staffer I can inform you that Rick instigated that kiss. Saw it with my very own eyes. It was a delightful surprise for all. :)

Holy Rusted Metal Bat--uh, I mean, Buckman! Dang Aubrey, I think you are going to have a HARD time deciding (or do you already know?!) who you're going to pick. This just keeps getting more intense! Love it.
PS- I think Emily should be the next bachelorette. Agree?

April said...

Did he ask her first? She looked ready for it....

Geoff said...

Props to Erin for living dangerously and filming inside the Pantages, even when the show isn't going. They are super anal about it there.

The Mormon Bachelorette said...

Geoff, that would actually be Emily who likes to live dangerously. So stealth. What would we do without her!

Emily Sue said...

Oh we did it while the show was going as well. Footage wasn't up to par though.

Shayla said...

oooohhh goodness! A kiss for Rick Buck. I was almost as surprised as my 4 year old Hunter, your biggest fan, when he looked at me shocked hahaha. I kind of love you two together {no matter how hot you and Larry or you and Matt look together}. Definitely the chicken to your waffle :)
Can't wait to see who you choose!!! Good luck!

Digital said...

ain't gonna lie, the kiss looked a little akward. Why the big hug after?

TheSinglesWard said...

BUKKMAN, dunanunanunanunanuna.... BUKKMAN!!!!

The Jayroes said...

Was someone really giggling when you guys kissed?! Oh man.. that's embarrassing!!

You experienced some of y favs. tonight too. Roscoe's is by FAR the best place to get chicken and waffles. I don't know what is in their syrup, but it is the best, and I've seen Phantom of the Opera 3 times. Love it. great date!
