Joyce shares the story behind her home invasion and explains how she feels about having a gun in the home.

on Jan 20

Now that my husband installed an insane alarm system in our new home, I hope I will never have to use the gun. But I do want to feel protected, because if anyone was to mess with my babies that's the moment when I would become Lara Croft and do whatever needs to be done.

My husband and I always have fun together in everything we do. Some people call me crazy, but the reality is that I enjoy spending each second with him. He is not just my husband, he is my rock and my very best friend!

I really liked seeing Brandi fix things with her father, because life is so short that we can't waste time being upset with the people we love.

Kyle's family is beautiful and I love them! I admire the Shabbat tradition and no matter which faith you are of, there is nothing more wonderful than dedicating a certain day to spend time with your family and loved ones, absent of TV, phone, and other interruptions. Sophia is growing into an amazing young woman and her bat mitzvah was simply perfection.

I love doing girls' get-togethers and organizing fun events for my friends. Even though Brandi and I had been on a very rocky road, I didn't want to exclude her -- so I decided to invite all the ladies to a self-defense class. It was nice to finally come together and all get along, leaving behind all the petty drama.
