Tamra talks about the Florida trip, her friendship with Vicki, and her holiday plans!

on Dec 17, 2009

My talk with Vicki at Bliss was difficult. I care about Vicki and I don't want her to be upset. I also do NOT want to get in the middle of her and Simon's argument. I have voiced my opinion to both of them. Vicki is not only my friend but Simon's too. We did a lot of things together as a family and all that has changed over one stupid fight. After La Perla, the three of us went to dinner and Vicki and Simon got into a bit of an argument (off camera). I think they are both strong, opinionated people and like things done a certain way. With that said, you can imagine how they butt heads. I think Vicki thinks I am too dependent on Simon and Simon thinks I'm influenced by Vicki.

I am an old fashion girl in a lot of ways and allow my husband to take care of most of the household decisions. Vicki owns her own company and is very career driven. I am very inspired by her motivation. We are on different roads of life. My kids are young and take up most of my time. I won't go into what their argument was about, I just hope one day we can put it all behind us.

I can't believe next week is Christmas already. You can feel the excitement in the air at our house. The kids are begging to open up just one present. All three of them have holiday parties tomorrow in their classrooms, and then they're out of school until the New Year. This will probably be our last Christmas in our house and I am determined to cherish every minute of it. My father is out from Iowa and staying with us. I am hoping to have my whole family over this weekend for a holiday feast and gift exchange while my dad is in town.

We have been invited to go to Las Vegas for New Years but not sure if we are going to go. We usually spend New Years at home with the kids, which is so much more rewarding and there is no crowd to deal with.

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday and a safe New Year.
