After the wine tour fiasco, the only thing I can hope is that we can all move forward and try to start fresh.
Have you ever seen the show “Dallas”? Well, the outside shots of the show were filmed at Southfork Ranch. It’s a big white house on several acres of land. I guess it’s a mansion.
Bra shopping with Steph was iiiiiiiiinteresting…especially when I found out that she is a size E! WOWZERS, girlfriend!
I was excited to prepare for Peyton and Sydney’s Birthday Party, hosted by Wishes Upon Wishes. Melissa Stinson, the owner of the company, was Peyton and Sydney’s first nanny, and we are still very close to this day.
Who doesn’t like wine? I like it, as long as it’s just wine. But in the case of our “wine tour moms night out” it was anything but “just wine.” I was really looking forward to the Grapevine Wine Tour with the girls.
I was really looking forward to the Wine Tour…until ‘life happened’. Joe and I had been up ’til 3am with friends, painting our kids’ new rooms. I was sore, tired, and sick of filming for the show by this point…
With all of the recent stress and tension among our group, I decided it was time for a day away from our children and spouses to relax and attempt to reconcile hurt feelings.
I was excited to go on the wine tour that Candace had planned for us ladies. I felt bad about the whole Hooters issue and I was hoping the wine tour would be a place where we could all have fun and just clear the air.
It’s a rocky start to the morning at Stephanie’s house as she and Jerald bicker incessantly. The morning goes from bad to worse when Stephanie realizes that her female dog is in heat and has left a trail of blood throughout the house. While Stephanie tries frantically to clean up the mess, Jerald has to separate the dogs for fear that they might end up with puppies sometime soon. The last thing Stephanie wants to deal with is more multiples in the house.
Meanwhile, Candace has planned a birthday bash for her triplets’ 4th birthdays. She invites the other multi-mamas to bring their kids as well, although Stephanie is left off the guest list. At the party, the other moms can’t help but notice that Teryn’s kids are running absolutely wild. Without her husband there to help her, Teryn is obviously out of her depth.
Single mom of twins, Tonia, is working hard to establish her home organization business. She’s excited to be speaking at a bridal convention this week. The morning of the convention, Candace is by Tonia’s side, helping her prepare. But the day takes on a bittersweet tone as the nature of the convention brings up raw emotions from Tonia’s divorce.
As Stephanie and Jerald contemplate getting both dogs fixed as soon as possible, Stephanie brings up the idea of Jerald getting snipped as well. Jerald thinks that Stephanie should be the one to have surgery since he would still like to have more children. Stephanie vows to win this fight eventually.
At the end of the week, all the moms get together to let loose. Stephanie complains about Jerald refusing a vasectomy and the other Mamas boast that their husbands have already gone under the knife. The talk then turns to sex and birth control and the women compare notes on what does and doesn’t happen in their respective bedrooms.
