Replay last season, I clearly remember Tamra hating Gretchen, and Gretchen swore she'd never be friends with Tamra. . .
The friendship between Vicki and I is not out of convenience, nor is it contrived. Vicki and I have both said we have nothing to dislike the other person for, and we really enjoy being around each other. Not only that, but Vicki apologized to me for everything in the past and said that if Tamra hadn't been in her ear she would have gotten to know me and befriended me sooner. I told Vicki I was sorry for not understanding her sooner but I understand her now. . .And from that we BOTH moved forward. It's ironic to me that Tamra suddenly has an issue with Vicki becoming friends with me, but doesn't seem to feel it's strange what she is doing with Gretchen, and same goes for Gretchen. HELLO ladies, you two were talking smack on each other and are friends again! Bottom line is why can't we all just get along and be happy for each other? You know, in my other circles of friends, we're just friends, not frenemies. Moving on. . .
Shannon always makes me laugh! I couldn't think of one person I'd rather take glamping with me after being cooped up for 10 days! All I wanted to do was laugh and have fun, and Shannon already knows I pack heavy, so I knew she wouldn't mind me taking two suitcases for an overnight trip! I'm a girl that needs options!!! I really wanted this trip to be special for the ladies, with s'mores packets, scarves to match each of their personalities, and sweatshirts decorating each girl's room when they arrived. When all is said and done, I think camping is fun and I knew that getting the ladies away from the typical technology would allow us all to get to know each other better, and what better place than El Capitan where we can have the wilderness and a bed!!!
