Did you miss us, because we missed you! A lot has happened in Dallas since we saw each other last. I am so very excited to catch you all up! I want to start by saying a huge “THANK YOU” for all of the love and support you have shown us leading up to tonight’s premiere. I am absolutely blown away by the amount of kindness, compassion and love from my online friends, as well as folks that we run into every day. You truly warm my heart and I can't thank you enough! It is because of YOU that this experience is worth sharing!
For me, this episode was so special and something I have been trying my best to keep quiet about. When your best friend has a baby, you want to share the wonderful news, pictures, and stories of sweetness.
#ProudFriendMoment Bruin has seamlessly joined the Redmond Family. I have never seen Brandi Redmond and Bryan happier. I truly feel like Bruin has been the biggest blessing to their family. As her friend, nothing makes me happier than to see Brandi happy!
When we left off last year, Travis and I were just starting renovations on our new home. I am happy to report that our renovations are complete, we are all moved in and yes, the pool is gone! The house was a much larger project than either of us originally expected because mama likes knocking down some walls. I’m very glad that I held my ground with the renovations. Our house now feels like a home and less like Travis Hollman’s Dream Palace. I can't wait to share more on that with you soon!
Tonight we had the true pleasure of celebrating Jeremy and D'Andra Simmons’s 4th wedding anniversary. Now I have to be honest, I wouldn’t say it is “normal” to throw a large party for your fourth wedding anniversary, but D’Andra is the exception to that rule! I am always happy to support a friend will gladly accept any excuse to throw on a gown for a Friday night of fun! I was a little concerned when I couldn’t find my name on a table (you know that “wait, I did RSVP, right?”) until I stumbled upon my seat…right next to LeeAnne Locken. Cary Deuber was absolutely right, my whole body tensed up in that moment, but my heart also opened up a little too. It is a new year. I am so tired of fighting! I’m ready to start a new chapter with this group, including LeeAnne. As I’ve watched the issues unravel with her and my friends, I’ve put my guard up high and have never even considered the possibility of a friendship with LeeAnne. This year I wanted to change that pattern and get to know her based on my own experiences and interactions.
Thank you all so much for tuning in, tweeting and sending all of your kind and encouraging words. I am so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you and can't wait for you to ride along on this journey with us. Hold on because it is going to be a wild ride!
