Welcome back to another season of Real Housewives. Some things change, and some things stay the same. I know people will think that Colton has become more rebellious than when we last saw him. I think Colton is growing up. Boys will be boys... Colton just wants to spend all his free time with his friends now. I don't know if that's rebellion or simply just a stage in growing up. He also just passed his learner's permit test on the first try, we're all proud of him. Here are some photos of my Colty, on his way to Homecoming:
I love the fact that Tamra says she's "the hottest housewife in Orange County." She is hot! I see so many beautiful women everyday, from the grocery store to the nail salon, and I think it's a pretty large claim but she very well may be! And it's all about confidence, every woman is as hot as she thinks she is.
Everyone will probably ask about Kara and her boyfriend. When Steven broke up with Kara, she was really hurt and confused. But she has since grown out of the pain, but little reminders of him still find their way into our house (despite the fact that most of his pictures have been stripped from her walls). She found herself in process, discovering a newfound and heartfelt appreciation for her true friends. Kara had more "girl time" but soon settled herself into a family place- and...she has a new boyfriend!
The graduation day and graduation party was a great time, with the exception of Colton missing her graduation ceremony. I think Kara was more disappointed than I was- he's her favorite family member. The thing about Kara that makes me most proud is her strong stance against alcohol. To have graduated high school, with great achievements, and haven't ever succumbed to the pressure of her peers is really an amazing thing.
I feel so honored when other mothers comment on my blog telling me they want their daughters to learn from mine. I feel so proud. She is so supportive of her friends, she advises them when they ask for help, and lot's of her friends parents take her to lunch and dinner to help them get over the empty nest.
Kara is going to college in January and all of her friends left in Sept. She has the most amazing relationships with adults, she is so mature and sensitive people always ask her for advice.
I don't know what they chose to include in this season, and I can't remember what I ate for breakfast this morning... so I really have no clue how to tell you what might expect. Kara goes to UC Berkeley and realizes she may have to change her wardrobe. Shane goes to Canada to play ball, We have car accidents, weddings, separations, surgeries, all the usual run of the mill stuff!
Oh! And before I forget, I was asked to write in as part of the "Green is Universal" initiative to save the environment. The best advice I have is to buy plants. Also, make sure your cars have good smog standards, ALWAYS separate your trash, recycle. And just plain be conscious of the environment around you. Also, and this is important - don't litter!
Stay tuned, there's more to come this season!
