With Ryan finally back from tour, Ashlee is smitten and psyched to spend some time with him. However, she is still super busy and the couple is forced to compromise their quality time, with Ryan attending Ashlee's band practice as she prepares to go on tour. Jordan, the president of the record label Ashlee's band is signed to, also drops by the practice. He suggests that the guys in the band sing back up vocals for Ashlee and the boys seemed alright with doing so, only they get frustrated because the situation is so sudden and rushed. Ryan jokes that he can sing back up for the band if need be.
After practice, Ashlee and some friends hang out at her new crib. Her interior decorator stops by and Ashlee goes over her plans for each room in the house. When the decorator leaves, Ash is pumped because she feels like the pair had a great connection. She cannot wait for her house to be finished!
With a hectic tour schedule quickly approaching, Ashlee decides she has to get in better shape. She and some friends take a private Tae-Bo lesson with expert Billy Blanks. After the workout, the group is exhausted and Ashlee vows to get more fit before tour.
Ashlee's house is coming along, but not as quickly as she was hoping. She has another meeting with her decorator and expresses her concern that the house be complete when she gets back from tour. Ashlee notes that she wants a comfortable place to crash and that her bedroom should be the decorator's first priority. Painting crews come in and Ashlee's place is transformed into a hot bachelorette pad, with lots of cream, black and red.
Ashlee contemplates adding her friend Lucy to the band for more back up vocals. At practice, Lucy sings and everyone expresses their uneasiness about the way Lucy's vocals sound with the track "La La," which is a priority because the band will be performing this song on TRL. Ashlee gets nervous and decides to go back to the original band members for the TRL performance, and the band successfully rips up the stage.
After TRL and a few radio interviews, Ashlee is off to the Motor City for Detroit's Hob Wobble Gobble Thanksgiving show. The performance goes great and Ashlee is much more lighthearted now that the stress leading up to her TRL performance is done with. The Thanksgiving show raises ample money for the Thanksgiving Day parade, and Ashlee's dad comes to Detroit to keep her company. She waits and waits in her trailer for the parade to begin and gets somewhat anxious. Finally she is called to her Target float. The parade is a breeze and Ashlee and her dad hop on a plane to make it home in time for Thanksgiving dinner.
