Welcome back this week. Sorry I’ve been skipping a few weeks here and there -– life seems to be too busy to sit down and write anything. Unfortunately, we had a death in the family two weeks ago which rocked all of our worlds. Mike and Briana’s 14-year-old half-brother was killed in a terrible accident in southern Illinois, so please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
My blogs as you can see are always going to be “short and sweet” as I am not one to sit still long enough to write lately. Tonight you see the big reveal of the new baby. Baby #2 should be arriving around July 11th if not sooner. It was so much fun for Briana and Ryan to bring over the box with the color of the balloons in it for the gender reveal. Even they didn’t know what it was going to be -- so it was really fun for all of us to experience it together. I’m really happy that Briana is having a boy even though I said I wanted her to have a girl, because I know Troy will have that built in buddy that every boy needs. All we pray for now is a healthy baby and momma.
Briana is on modified bed rest right now and I’ve been fortunate enough to go back and forth to OKC every three weeks to help out as much as I can with Troy and to see her and Ryan. I have really come to like Oklahoma and the people are really great so again, my apologies if I offended any of you. Let’s move on from that, OK?
This Good Day LA situation with Heather and Tamra is just silly to me. I mean, really! I look at it completely different than Tamra does. If Heather works out at a gym in Newport (which is nowhere near Tamra’s gym), why can’t she have that gym on to showcase their workout? Why does Heather owe Tamra a “free commercial” to CUT Fitness when she doesn’t even work out there? I’ve tried to put myself in both situations, and I err on the side of Heather on this one as this is how I see it. I insure over 7,000 clients in the past 26 years of being in business. I do not insure Heather and Terry’s personal lines or his medical practice. If Heather and Terry chose to have their insurance agent/company on Good Day LA to support their business relationship, why would I be offended? I mean, really? I wouldn’t be offended at all. It’s a GIFT to be able to be on a show like Good Day LA and the fact Heather did tell Tamra that she wanted to put her on eventually then Tamra should have said “thank you!” I’m sorry, Tamra, if you’re upset with this one, but sincerely I don’t think you had any place to be mad at Heather. She was coming from a good place, not an evil place.
This email that David sent to Shannon just makes me sad. I don’t blame Shannon for sharing this information with Tamra because that’s what girls do. I remember when Donn and I were going thru our “issues”... sometimes emails turn out to be the easiest form to communicate with one another. For David to share his feelings with Shannon as he did, he probably felt they were just going to stay between them. My heart breaks for David and Shannon and I hope they are able to get their marriage back on track for the sake of their family. The grass isn’t always “greener” on the other side and to me they need to water the grass they are on. Take it from me –- divorce is costly and it destroys the children in some way or another. I’ve been a good friend to Shannon and I’m there for her whenever she needs me and I’m encouraging her to get the necessary help to keep her marriage together. The engines are starting to rumble -– so stay tuned which I know you all love.
Thank you for being so supportive to all of us as we peel back the curtain into our personal lives. In closing, I’ve got some exciting things that I am working on including a new book geared towards some basic principles on retirement planning, my new Diamonds by Vicki diamond line will be available soon on Amazon and many more other surprises I have in the works. If you haven’t seen my YouTube video on my company, please check it out and let me know what you think.
Wishing you all a safe and Happy Summer. Vicki xoxo
