People will believe what they want or not believe what they want from the book regardless of what Danielle says. Just because someone says it's true or not true doesn't necessarily make it so. People will make up their own minds and have their own opinions. Needless to say, that dinner turned ugly FAST! What the HECK was in those Bellinis?! Don't "F" with Teresa! Holy cow! That was actually the first time in seven years that I EVER even saw her even angry. It was CRAZY! I guess the anger had been building up in her toward Danielle for a while. Some of her reasons why were not discussed or shown on the show. Danielle said it herself...she likes to push buttons. NEVER tell Teresa to "Pay attention." LOL! Everyone was out of control. I'm so over it! Time to make amends and move on. I love my family and I just want peace. I adore my husband so much for trying to be supportive of everyone and for trying to keep the peace. I am so proud of him and he is the best man I know (besides my Dad) and I love him sooo much for it. I am a very lucky girl.
As you see, Ashley finally earned her car! We took my Dad's advice and didn't give her full control of it. In the beginning we only let her drive it to school and back and she earned more and more time with the car as she acted appropriately. My husband and I controlled the keys. It was great to see her reaction to the car - I know that she was very surprised and it made us feel good that she worked hard for it that summer and that we could give it to her.
How cute are my parents? They are the sweetest, most down to earth people you will ever meet in your life. My Dad is a retired Army Colonel and retired Vice president of Operations of a major hotel in Las Vegas, NV. I am very proud of them and we are very, very close. We speak DAILY to each other and visit each other often. How cool is their motor coach? We once traveled the entire Alaskan Highway in that coach one summer. It was an incredible experience! I think everyone should experience this at least ONCE in his or her lifetime. Anyway, I trust and respect my parents' advice and opinions. I always consult with them. I ended up doing the Botox in my forehead regardless of my Mom's horror stories about it ending in death. All of her stories end in death when she is trying to prevent me doing something she doesn't approve. She has a story for every food you can eat or medicine you can take or cosmetic procedures you can get, etc. I took my foolish chances to remove the wrinkles in my forehead, which resembled a Shar Pei dog. It's all worn off now, but I am seriously considering doing it again. I'm a rebel. Haha!
