Hola from Puerto Vallarta...
OMG isn’t my condo amazing? Doesn’t it make you want to put everything down, get on a plane and head there right now? Don’t we all wish -- including me! It has such a relaxing feeling when you're there and tends to take all the stress out of my mind. One of the favorite parts of my day is when I sit on the veranda watching the seagulls in a perfect line gliding through the sky. I feel my father’s spirit there when I’m there and my mind is at peace like no other place I have ever been.
Since I was there for two weeks, I had lot of friends rotate through. My brother Billy and his girlfriend Rhonda arrived first so of course they got the second master bedroom suite, and unfortunately that left the smaller bedroom to David and Shannon. I knew that they weren’t used to that type of room and probably expected the "Ritz Carlton," but to me that’s the fun of being in Mexico. It’s the culture, creeky beds and not 5,000-thread count sheets that make the experience, but I did understand it probably wasn’t what they expected.
When I told my brother that I thought they were not happy with their room, Billy volunteered his which was awesome. Billy is the best and so easygoing -- gotta love Billy!! After that little hiccup, everyone was happy and the Beadors woke up the rest of their trip looking at downtown Puerto Vallarta and the ocean. Voila! Problem solved.
I felt bad for Shannon when she said she thought everyone was always dissecting her marriage, but unfortunately it was the truth. They didn’t keep any of their "problems or issues" private so that’s what you’re going to get -- people’s opinions. I didn’t like seeing Shannon pick at David every time he had a drink -- especially the day we were on the beach tequila tasting. I mean, what the heck? It’s a gorgeous day, the waiter brought over tequila so what were we supposed to do, look at it? I just felt she was a bit uptight, but after some jet skiing and tequila she loosed up just fine. Way to go, Shannon, for rallying and enjoying the day. Don’t you love the way she tried to imitate me doing the "woo hoo?"
When Tamra told me about her idea of getting a “robo baby” and I thought she needed her head examined. I don’t know how “real” it is having a plastic baby to tote around but I think it gave Eddie a quick glimpse of how life would be with a baby in tow. Glad they decided against it as I think Tamra has enough on her plate with four kids, a new marriage and a new business.
For those of you that are asking... Briana is due to have her baby next week. I’ll be flying to BEAUTIFUL Oklahoma City to be with her for her scheduled C-section. I’m flying my 82-year-old mother from Chicago out there as well to welcome this new baby into the world so we will have four generations in one house. Hope Ryan can handle all of us. We are all so excited to see this precious new baby. Please keep Briana and the new baby (no name yet) in your prayers for a healthy delivery for both momma and baby. Now that deserves a WOO HOO!
I’ve got so many fun things going on in my life and I am probably at the happiest place I’ve been in a long time. Life is good, I am blessed beyond words and I thank God every day for the endless opportunities and the support team I have built to support all my businesses.

Wishing you an amazing, healthy and happy summer and don’t forget to smile... even if you don’t feel like it. Your mind controls your thoughts, which controls your destiny.
