Vicki: Time Will Tell With Brooks
Vicki hopes that one day Brooks and Briana will be able to make ammends -- and that you see how much fun Shannon is.
I don't know about you, but to me it was kind of hard to watch a holiday ugly sweater party when we are now into May. In any event, you can tell how far back we are from filming to when it airs. It's been at least six months or so which means a lot has happened in our lives since then. Hoping you stay tuned to see all what goes on.
I loved watching Shannon and David's night away from the kids and seeing them interact with each other on their date night. I can understand how a woman feels if they are not getting attention from their husband and although I think Shannon was coming from a good place, I see where David thought she was nagging too much about it. It was good to see David making the effort by planning a nice evening together. I think it really made Shannon feel important to him.
I've gotten to know the Beadors quite a bit since then, and David is right -– Shannon is a lot of fun. If it seemed that their scene of "togetherness" was uncomfortable to watch because if it was awkward to be intimate with each other, that was not the case. Shannon told me she was nervous about sharing their "romance" with the world.
It was hard for me to see Tamra so sad about having to share custody of her kids with Simon and having the "baby itch" with Eddie. I agree with Eddie, as it would be too difficult at this time in their busy lives to bring on a baby and it's a forever decision. My feelings in no time, she will be a grandmother and will be able to have the same experiences I have with Troy and she needs to just be happy with her four healthy children.
It was great having dinner with Brooks at our local restaurant Hannah's. We try to get together a few nights a week to catch up on each other's lives.
We still have the on-going conflict with Briana, which continue to causes stress in our relationship. I pray and hope that one day that they would be able to calmly sit down, be given forgiveness, and then move on. It would be good for all. Brooks is very sincere when he told me that he really hopes he has an opportunity to one day talk with her. Until then, we are taking it slow, asking for God’s hand on our relationship and to just take each day at a time. I guess time will tell on what will happen, but until then we continue to just have fun together.
I'm wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day weekend. I will be spending it in Oklahoma with Briana and her family. She is now seven months pregnant and is staying close to her new home until the baby is born. I miss them so much, but have been able to Skype and FaceTime with her and Troy, which has helped me get through this move a little bit better. Their home is absolutely gorgeous in Oklahoma, and she is really enjoying it there.
