Hope everyone is having a great September. I love this time of year -- the crisp mornings, back to a routine, back to the gym! I'm feeling good! Oh and let's not forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back! Oh yeah!
On to the episode...
Joe cracks me up when he talks about how he builds houses. The fact is he really is so talented and has such an eye for custom homes. It's his craft, it's what God blessed him with. The only problem is he absolutely loves doing it, so he keeps wanting to build new homes! Eventually I'll put my foot down and say this is the last one, but I can't deny I love it too. I could move every ten years and be happy to change it up a bit. He loves designing them and I love decorating them. We make a great team!
The dinner at TeRESa's house looked yummy. Rino is a great cook and he was cracking me up when he kept running to the bathroom. I love people who are goodhearted, mean no harm, and just like to have fun. That's how I see TeRESa, Rino, and their family. However, the thingy on his thingy -- I could have gone without seeing that, LOL!Gia is such a strong young girl, and she's grown into such a wonderful little woman. I loved watching Teresa's morning routine, because it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one running around like a nut before school every morning! It's those little things in life we take for granted that one day when they are all grown up we will miss doing. I enjoy every minute with my kids and spend as much time as I can with them, because one day they are going to get in their car and drive themselves to school and I'm not looking forward to that. God bless all the mommies out there!
I will say I had no idea when I introduced Amber to my sister-in-law that she was going to have such strong feelings toward her. I know Teresa doesn't like all the questions, and I think by now Amber should realize that. It's not about us understanding exactly what's going on, it's about making sure Teresa knows we are there for her if she needs us. I do feel for Amber with her scare at the doctor. She has four beautiful children she wants to stay healthy for, so it's completely understandable that she is so stressed waiting for the results. Cancer is no joke and I would be a mess waiting for an answer.
Dina is losing her buddy! We all saw her hire him years ago, and he means a lot to her and Lexi. He looks like a lot of fun and I'm sure they miss him so much. But hey, that's a great excuse for her and Lexi to take a trip across the pond![video_clip_url:http://player.theplatform.com/p/PHSl-B/yT7k3t_YLXoZ/embed/select/VcBlx_zBd2hT?form=html]Jac is back! Surprise! I know the fans love her honesty and the real struggles she shares with us all. I can't wait to see Nick's progress! He is so adorable and his voice gets me every time!
I feel like life is short and you need to enjoy every moment. I'm realizing more and more as I get older that life isn't ever going to be perfect, you have to roll with the punches and live day to day. If we knew what the future holds, we would all probably do things a lot differently. It's kind of crazy to see how all of our friendships started and where they are going.
A lot happens during the Florida trip and you will soon see how the rest of us get filled in on the rumor.

Lots of Love,
