Vicki shares how she's celebrating her birthday this weekend.

It's my birthday weekend, and I'm looking forward to spending time with my kids and reflecting back on life. (Do I hear a woo-hoo?) It seems every time I turn a new age, I tend to reflect forward as to what changes I can anticipate this next year and what changes I can make to improve my quality of life left on this earth. It's the last of my 40's…so I'm planning on "whooping it up" as I've been known to say. Next year I turn 50 and Briana turns 25 within only 2 weeks of each other, so we are planning a week long cruise and inviting all of our friends to join us in the 1/4 and 1/2 century birthday celebration. Our hope is to have at least 100 of our friends join us which should be fun.

Going to Cabo with Tamra was exactly what we needed to get our friendship back on track. I know it may have seemed like I made her work too hard to "court our friendship back"… but it was all in good fun. She and I had never gone on a girls trip before, and it was great spending one on one quality time with her. I felt like Tamra was on an adult spring break, doing body shots (first time I even heard of those) and talking about her sex life was like "holy crap …really?" The hotel we stayed at Casa Dorado was amazing, and in fact Tamra and I leave again next week to go back there to celebrate my birthday and Eddie's birthday with a bunch of other friends. I'm looking forward to leaving this cold, rainy, dreary Southern California weather.

When I watched this week's episode of she and I doing our first tequila shot, It made me laugh out loud! Exactly what is the correct order to do a shot? Is it the salt, lime and then the shot? As Tamra said there are really only three ways you can do it, and I really don't even know which way was the right way. Does anyone know?

Tamra continuing to want to talk about sex made me very uncomfortable. I have never been one to outwardly talk about people's sex lives, so when she told me she has sex for five hours I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. I mean really… If you do have the opportunity to do that, I guess that's great, I just have never had anyone say that to me before.
