Heading back home from an amazing weekend in Minnesota where the EVINE LIVE shopping channel is located! Terry and I are so grateful for the amazing response to our skin care line CONSULT BEAUTE available exclusively at EVINE LIVE (or go to evinelive.com)! You will be seeing the road to Minnesota this season on RHOC so stay tuned!
I didn't write a blog last week - so this will be a bit of a combo :)
I am just devastated for Vicki over the loss of her mother. I had the pleasure of meeting Joanne a few times and she was quite a character! Vicki is the strong, fun, crazy woman she is because of her amazing mother.
Vicki's siblings are all so close, you could feel the love between them as they called each other and mourned their beloved mother. It was so sad and yet beautiful to watch and made me think of my own family and like I said to Lizzie at lunch, I hope that's what I am creating between my own children. I won't be here forever, but if I can instill in them the love and respect for one another as Vicki's mother has clearly done - I will have done my job. Even in death she is still giving life lessons to us all.
Rest in Peace, Joanne Closset Steinmetz.
When someone dies it reminds you to take stock of your life and what's important. My family means everything to me. Those four perfectly imperfect children are my pride and joy and I love my husband with all of my heart.
That's why it's so hard to not have him around. I am so proud of him and the work he is doing in his private practice AND the incredibly difficult cases he does on Botched. However, he is still my husband and our children's father and WE MISS HIM! No shame in that game :)
Coco is very smart and she knows it annoys Terry when she ignores him. It's hard on a four year old to not have their parent around. She doesn't care that he has to work! They do love each other though. Sadly, you are not seeing the love and giggles they share too!
Terry and his MOOBS!
I mean come on, there have to be SOME repercussions for eating so many onion rings!!! (HAHA) No, seriously, he really doesn't have MOOBS - it's just fun to tease him sometimes :)
Coco (who is 4 1/2 now) is only leaving her pacy by her bed now "just in case" she needs it in the middle of the night! YEAH!!! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!! Thank you all for your funny, supportive stories of your own struggles with the dreaded pacy, binky, plug, nuk!!!!
Finally I want to say a HUGE congratulations to Tamra on becoming a GRANDMA!!! It was so nice after last week's episode to cry some HAPPY tears!!!! Sending so much love to the whole Judge/Vieth Family...
Ava Ryan is just the CUTEST thing ever!!!
Until next week...
