Originally posted 12/24/2011 03:15PM

Six months after getting engaged on The Bachelorette season finale last August, lovebirds Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are spending their first holiday season together learning about each other's family traditions.

Rosenbaum is Jewish and celebrates Hanukkuh, while Hebert's family celebrates Christmas.

"All of my friends in dental school are Jewish and they celebrated Hanukkuh, but I never did," Hebert says. "I love it."

"We have been celebrating the first few nights of Hanukkuh. We lit some candles," Rosenbaum tells PEOPLE, joking that he has also introduced her to the "Jewish tradition of having Chinese food." Says Rosenbaum: "We did a pre-Hanukkuh dim sum down in Chinatown with my parents."

Ashley Hebert & J.P. Rosenbaum Too Busy to Plan a Wedding

Just because they're not planning a wedding doesn't mean there's trouble in paradise for Ashley Hebert and fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum.

"We're so busy that even if I wanted to plan [a wedding] right now, I don't think I could," the former Bachelorette, 26, told PEOPLE at the Dodge Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles half marathon.

Hebert, who is in her final weeks of dental school and currently applying to pediatric residencies in New York, says, "My brain is just not there right now."

But the couple isn't waiting too long, and will "start talking about [wedding planning] after the New Year," assured Rosenbaum, 34.

Before getting engaged to the man of her dreams on The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert had to make sure he met the family. And New York construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum did – except for one important member: Hebert's teacup Yorkie, Boo.

Hebert's fiancé finally spent time with Boo earlier this month when the couple traveled to her hometown of Madawaska, Maine. And, to no one's surprise, the two hit it off right away.

"J.P. loved Boo," Hebert told PEOPLE at Sunday's Boy Meets Girl presentation during New York Fashion Week. "They're good. They will be best friends."

Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum Receive Advice from Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney: Don't Rush

Originally posted 08/04/2011 08:10PM

When it comes to a long-lasting relationship, former Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney have some words of wisdom to share with The Bachelorette's recently engaged couple, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum.

"Don't rush,” Mesnick, 35, tells PEOPLE. "Just because you met on a TV show and just because you now have a ring on your finger doesn't mean you have to get married in three months. Maybe it's a year. Maybe it's two years. Just make sure the relationship works the way you want it to."

And, adds Malaney, "focus only on each other. Do not let the media guide your life.”

More than 9 million viewers tuned in to The Bachelorette season finale Monday night and watched Ashley Hebert get engaged to the man of her dreams, New York construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum.

But they also saw Hebert's sister, Chrystie Corns, loudly voice her disapproval of Rosenbaum as a mate for her sister.

"I made a big mistake," Corns tells PEOPLE of hastily judging Rosenbaum and telling him he wasn't a good match for Ashley. "As I started watching the season, however, it's very clear to me that J.P. was the one. He was the best choice."

She had to endure months of tears, lies and betrayals on The Bachelorette, but after getting engaged in glorious, romantic fashion to J.P. Rosenbaum, Ashley Hebert says she wouldn't have it any other way.

"I've never even looked back for a second on my decision," Hebert tells PEOPLE in the latest cover story.

In fact, Hebert, 26, credits Rosenbaum, who proposed to her in Fiji on the ABC show's Aug. 1 finale, with helping her recover from her ill-fated romance with two-timing contestant Bentley Williams.

She also says her relationship with the 34-year-old New York construction manager didn't truly begin until the cameras went away.

Ashley Hebert: My Sister's Reaction to J.P. Was a 'Shock'

Originally posted 08/02/2011 04:00PM

Going into this final week, I was feeling certainty with my decision and was excited for my family to meet both Ben and J.P.

I still had a few unresolved concerns, but I knew my sister would provide me the insight that I needed. Not only that, seeing my family at this point was going to be the exact thing I needed. Being away from your normal life, friends and family for as long as I had been, you feel alone. I could not wait to see them!

I thought my family would love both of these guys – who wouldn't? But to my surprise, my sister, the person I was looking forward to seeing the most, had a very strong opinion about J.P. I didn't need for my family to see everything right away and confirm my feelings, but I did need support from them. My sister told me that J.P. wasn't the one for me even before she had even sat down to talk to him!

She may have found her happily ever after with J.P. Rosenbaum, but The Bachelorette Ashley Hebert definitely had a connection with her other suitor, Ben Flajnik – a canine connection!

During Flajnik's first meeting with Hebert's family in Fiji, the pair, who are both dog owners, goofily displayed their best doggie voices for the group – hers, a high-pitched coo, and his, a terrifying rasp.
