Friday news flash, y'all–I love the Robertson family from Duck Dynasty. Just when I think Korie and Willie Robertson couldn't be kinder or more down-to-earth, they go and and share their story about how expanding their family through adoption changed their lives.
Apparently, when the Robertson clan isn't writing bestsellers or opening stores (or starring in their hit show, for that matter!), they are out doing good and spreading awareness about what is important to them–faith and family. Take note, Kardashians!
Well, I think we all know my first stop if I ever make it to Monroe, Louisiana! Well, wait. My FIRST stop would be a stalkeresque drive-by of Phil and Miss Kay's house. This will be my second stop…or my third. Second will probably be the Duck Commander warehouse. But, this place will certainly be on my list. Where you ask? Why, Duck and Dressing, of course! Is there anything these Duck Dynasty folks can't do?
Willie Robertson's wife Korierecently shared the news on Twitter that she and daughter Rebecca will be opening Monroe's newest and most quackably chic boutique!
They're not going anywhere, and I, for one, couldn't be more elated happy, happy, happy! The phenomenon that is Duck Dynasty keeps spreading faith, humor, family values, and positivity, and it isn't going anywhere any time soon.
I know you'll agree with me that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Silas Robertson is married, y'all! Of course, we all already knew this, although Uncle Si's wife has stayed out of the spotlight while her husband and family skyrocketed to fame withDuck Dynasty.
When news of Si's happy forty-three union became common knowledge, hearts were breaking all over the country, although his love for his wife made all those broken-hearted ladies adore him even more. Am I right? Oh, I know I am!
So, it seems that the silent, bearded type is star struck by the tiny rapping type. Do I smell a collaboration? Duck Dynasty'sJep Robertson has certainly become more vocal this season, and he recently shared his favorite celebrity sighting…Yeezy himself.
While appearing with his brothers and Uncle Si on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jep ran into Kanye Westbackstage before heading over to catch a runway show during New York Fashion Week. Of course, it wasn't just any show…it starred Willie'sdaughter Sadie Robertson!
It's been a whole week since I got to spend quality time with Phil, Willie, Jase, Uncle Si, and the rest of the Robertson crew. Sure, I've had my reruns, but I so look forward to Wednesday nights now thanks to Duck Dynasty. Last night was no different. Whether the warehouse boys were convincing Si to pay out his last dollar over a gentlemen's bet or Jase wearing out his welcome at Willie's house, the episode went by too quickly. Sidebar, I love howJep is always referred to as "Willie's Other Brother."
Jase and Missy are renovating their kitchen, so Jase and the kids will be bunking with Willie and Korie. Thankfully, Missy is out of town, so she'll have to miss whatever debacle will surely ensue this weekend. Meanwhile, after a heated race between two toy woodpeckers, Godwin, Martin, Jep, and Si are betting on who can knock down red solo cup pyramids, and Si is doing his best to hustle the warehouse crew. Jep can't believe that Si and his father are related…after all, Phil was almost a quarterback in the NFL, and Si couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.
As y'all know, I love Duck Dynasty. In a reality world with name-calling, back-stabbing, hair-pulling, and bed-hopping, I find the Robertsons to be a refreshing change of pace! (Don't get me wrong, I like some drama, too!) Uncle Si has been the breakout star of the A&E hit. While he's been everything from a fashion model to an air traffic controller, yesterday Si added author to his list of accomplishments. His book Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle hit the shelves yesterday.
Si's stories span from days of playing hooky with his brothers to earning good grades in college despite having a hard time making it to class. He discusses his time in the military, how he met his wife, and the blessing of his two children and eight grandchildren.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Si talks about why he chose to pen the tome, as well as the strong faith he shares with his family. Initially, he didn't want to write a book, fearing that he didn't have enough family memories to share with his fans due to his twenty-five years serving in the armed forces. He says, "I was in the military, so I told my wife that I was never there for the kids when they were growing up. And she said, 'oh yeah you were. Let me go get a photo album.' And she was showing me dressed as a bunny rabbit, rooster, and Santa Claus during Christmas time. Personally, I didn't feel that I was there enough."
However, in true Si fashion, he ended up going for it, lamenting, "They just kept bothering me, so I said, OK."
I think things are really going to be great this season of Duck Dynasty. It's fun, light-hearted and not too scripted! I love seeing the Robertsons get together, and I think it's hilarious the way Phil interacts with his grandchildren.
Jase is installing a new dock with his brothers and friends as Si gives orders from the edge of the water. Si is great at supervision, but he's reminded that he, of all people, does not have super vision. I think we can all attest to that having seen his coke bottle glasses.
At the warehouse, Si is regaling the warehouse crew with stories of his football days. Jasehas Si's football formula memorized. First, there is a grand exaggeration followed by Si's remarkable strategy. After awhile, the actual story of the game begins, but it's riddled with commercial breaks for Epsom salt, sweet tea, and more ridiculously exaggerated stories.
