Peggy talks about the trip to Temecula and her awkward moment with Vicki.

Lastly, I want to discuss my boudoir photo shoot I did! I was really disappointed they only showed about two minutes of this. I planned this photo shoot as a surprise gift to Micah for his birthday! He is a very difficult person to buy gifts for, as he always gets himself whatever he wants or needs! I decided this year since we are done having babies and I am back in shape that it would be fun to do a tasteful boudoir lingerie shoot. This way he always has those photos to look back on when we are old. It was tough planning and executing this shoot. I had to fib and tell Micah the day of the shoot that I was filming with Tamra. Then I had to hide all the new La Perla lingerie I got in my trunk and snagged one of his jackets to wear during the shoot and put that in the trunk as well! I used to do a lot of catalog shoots in the past for lingerie and swimwear companies, so the day really flowed well and was really fun for me. I was definitely in my comfort zone. It was nice to feel sexy for the day after three years of babies and going through post partum depression. I would highly recommend every mommy do a boudoir shoot to look and feel beautiful for a day! Not only is it a gift to your significant other, but more importantly it is a gift to yourself. Choosing the right photographer makes all the difference in the world. I had the best photographer. Nancy from www.crushphotostudios.com has worked with me for years! We shoot really fast together and always get great pictures. I can't wait for the episode where you see me present a beautiful photo book to Micah with all the best pictures from my shoot! And don't worry, I'm not going to come out with my own lingerie line with my photo on the hang tags!

In closing, so many of you continue to reach out to me and ask what finally worked for me in battling my "baby blues," what liquid vitamins and immune support I take and give to my girls, and other health advice.
