Dillards Enjoy Married Life

Now that they are back from their honeymoon, Derick and Jill Dillard are settling into their new lives as husband and wife.

The newlyweds are living in Northwest Arkansas, so they are close to both the Duggars and the Dillards. Even though she is married, Jill still hasn't stopped investing in the lives of her siblings. She recently took James, who turns 13 next week, on a shopping trip to Aldi and Walmart.


Derick has a full-time job as a tax accountant, so Jill packed some food in the couple's personalized Razorback picnic basket and met him for lunch.


It's definitely an adjustment to cook for only two people when Jill is used to preparing meals for the Duggar clan. Looks like she and Derick are going to have lots of leftovers!

Where did you get the 2nd picture?

Why would she stop investing in her siblings lives? Just because she is married doesn't mean she is no longer a Duggar. Isn't James one of her buddies? It is an adjustment for all of them. Love this family and their wholesome values and their convictions and unshakeable belief in God. What a wonderful family and godly example for us all. God Bless the Duggar family as they continue to grow and add to their family.

Wow, I've been married 7 years and I'm in my early 40s and can't afford a house or a grill like that. Did Jim Bob give away some sort of dowry? And didn't Derick just return from Nepal? That house is nicer than the Duggar house!

This is just so exciting to watch them start their marriage!

I've read on other blogs about negative comments about their house, seriously people,why can't they have a nice house, just because JimBobs motto is all about thriftyness, doesn't mean his children have to be exactly like him.Envy and Jealously has a lot to do with the negativity, why not be happy for them .Its none of our business about their finances anyway.Funny thing is, they don't give a hoot about all this nitpick stuff said about them, they just live there life with love, honor and respect . Can you all imagine how kind this world would be if everyone was as nice to people as the Duggars? Godbless those Godlovin folks :-)

Jill and Derick honeymooned in North Carolina for almost a week. They rented a house on the beach. They're now settling into their house which is close to Derick's work.

Anyone know who makes this basket? I would like to order one for a bridal shower gift.
thank you

Anonymous said...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the picture of Jill with the picnic basket taken on their honeymoon?

Anonymous said...

Everyones comes from different financial situations, your age and how many years ones married doesent dictate ones wealth.Derick has a good job and Jill has her own nest egg,its not our buisness anyways.Lets just be happy for them,I hope they live in a mansion, they deserve it.All the giving they both do for their fellow man is awe inspiring and commendable.

Some people need to stop scrutinizing every last detail of Jills life, hair, house,job, dress,choices, so on and so on.She is a sweet,giving young lady who loves God and all people.So please just be happy for her and quit picking every piece of her life apart.Thankyou! Praise be to god

People Magazine did an interview with Jill on where her and Derick went on their honeymoon along with exclusive pictures. Here's the link: http://www.people.com/article/jill-duggar-derick-dillard-honeymoon-north-carolina-wedding-19-kids-and-counting

Are they renting or did they buy the house?

People magazine reports Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina for honeymoon.

Nancy Parker said...

@AnonymousI think that's one of the fixer uppers the family bought a few yrs ago. We don't know what the situation is with the house... maybe they are paying a modest rent but not everything is our buisness.

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina is where they spent their honeymoon

We finally know where they spent their honeymoon :-) North Carolina!

I'm sure TLC gave them money for her wedding and she was probably making money from being on the show since she isn't a minor.

What is happening with the other children? It seems there's only Jessa and Jill.

Maxine Zoe Evans said...

When will the all of the Wedding pictures be posted?

Margaret Tudor said...

Jill and Derick can't seem to stop smiling! :) Happy Birthday to young James!

I think "ThirtyOne" makes it. You can personalize stuff like that from 31. Look it up, if you don't know what it is, it's a super cute bag company.

Aaaah the joys of newlyweds......such a glow......and adjusting her cooking to just two.....for now.....It's a joy to watch this family.....Not much to find that's good these days.....it's wonderful to see something real and beautiful....

They went on picnics during their honeymoon so I bet that is the kitchen at the beach honeymoon house. They are such a cute couple. Can't wait to see the wedding on tv!

Hi Lily and Ellie,
Where do you live? Are you close to the Duggars? Are you family or just close friends to them?
Please get back to me soon.

Cathy Johnson said...

I literally get into verbal arguments sticking up for the Duggars! Leave them alone if you can't be happy for them! I love Jill n Derek's spirit and wish them the very best in life!

Theresa said...

Just can't wait for the new season to see scenes from Derrick and Jill's wedding, and maybe a peek into their new house. They are such a sweet couple!

I've seen those exact totes on Etsy. :-)

Anonymous said...

I believe they are also called market totes (on Etsy) and are collapsible.

Anonymous said...

My husband and I once asked Michelle and Jimbob if they made any money from promoting the financial freedom seminar, or from any of their books/ DVDs. They were very adamant that no, they didn't get any royalties from the sale of those rescourses. And originally I don't think they were paid for any of the first one hour specials. I think they may get some payment from tlc now. But that would all be covered by a confidentiality agreement. So it's any bodies guess now

They do sell these 'market baskets' (which are collapsible) on Etsy. And there is a seller out of Little Rock, Arkansas. dicorembroidery

I believe they are living in the Stoney Brook renovation that was featured on episode about finding the kittens in the wall. Even though it isnt anyones business about their finances, I cant help but wonder how things work in such a large family when a child gets married. Also have been curious about if the kids get any of the $ from the show? I am assuming that Josh and Anba do!?
