Tonight's episode was a girls' trip to San Antonio. I love Texas! Everyone is so flippin' nice you almost want to ask them if they are being serious. And growing up riding horses, I love the cowboy lifestyle! And let's not forget about the food! Texas has such great comfort food. We had a great time in Texas, but as you could probably see from my facial expressions, there were many moments where I was really wishing I were home with my hubby and babies. It was hard to leave home when Capri was barely one. Not to mention I didn't feel the dynamic with the girls that I feel when Tamra, Vicki, and I all hang out! At this point I was already feeling I needed to move on from my friendship with Alexis, so it was weird to be on a trip with her. I felt like I had to grin and bare it most of the trip. I don't really know Fernanda, but she is sweet, and Gretchen and I do get along well, but I know there is weirdness between us since I'm so close to Tamra.
The lunch in Texas was funny! Watching the show I realized how often Alexis would interrupt me or try to take over the conversation. It got to a point where I just stopped joining in the conversation. I also see that Gretchen is really torn about whether or not Slade is the right guy for her. I was meeting so many jerks before I met Micah, so I had to get strict and make a list of things I wanted and wouldn't accept. I was sharing all of these with Gretchen, however you only heard two of my wishes which were at the bottom of the list. I feel it is important to know what you really want before walking down the aisle. I have always worked as a model, TV host, and spokesperson, so when I said I wanted a guy that owned his own business, I was sharing that it's hard in a relationship to be with someone if your schedules are opposite. I didn't work 9 to 5 and was hoping to find someone that also didn't work 9 to 5. I also like my privacy, thus the no roommate wish! My top five wants and needs on my wish list were honesty, good communication, wants kids, passion/chemistry, and love for outdoor activities. These were a must! The job thing was a want, but not a deal breaker. If anyone is searching for a mate, I highly recommend making a list of all your wants and needs and the top five or ten you don't compromise on. Just my opinion and what worked for me.
I definitely did not agree with Alexis' comments about Fernanda's relationship or her negative views on gay marriage. I am very spiritual and believe whatever makes you happy is what is right. That's why I love our country and the freedoms we celebrate and the causes that work towards that freedom. One of those causes is NOH8, and I just shot photos for them last week. Will share on my Facebook soon! Check them out at www.noh8campaign.com!
Now we are at the Texas BBQ. So fun! I personally would travel every weekend if I could, and when in Rome always enjoy the local activities! Alexis acted like someone I didn't even know at the BBQ place. She definitely is trying to act more interesting this year or bring the drama. I couldn't believe how rude she was to pour ketchup on my food so she wouldn't be tempted to take a bite. I love to eat and was really enjoying the food and didn't need her to ruin my meal. Bringing up her eating disorder was surprising, as she had never told me this in the four years of our friendship prior. A lot of people are Tweeting and Facebooking me that they think she brought this up because I did my PPD story. It's possible, and it seems like she still has some issues with food. This would explain her pouring ketchup on my food. I've never met someone who was so obsessed with counting calories. Now I can understand why, and I feel bad that she went through this and hope she is better now! She was brave to bring it up, and hopefully she will help others like I have by discussing my PPD.
