Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Hello everyone!

Just a quick note to say Merry Christmas. Not happy holidays or seasons greetings but the real reason for the season... Christ. So Merry Christmas!!! Of course I like Santa and the reindeer and the elves, gingerbread men and snowmen but that's not why I celebrate this time of year. That's not why I'm singing around the house and that's not why I'm smiling every day. It's Christmas and I'm leaving The OC early in the AM tomorrow to fly up to northern California to spend my vacation with Shannon (my daughter)& son in law and my 4 adorable grand kids. Oh and I should mention that... I'll be staying these next 17 days in a tiny cabin in the mountains in the snow with Tim, my ex-husband :)

Who would have ever thought we would be back here over 30 years later? NOT me I'll tell you that. But for some reason we find ourselves here again and who knows what will happen. It's healing, emotional, familiar and exciting all at once and I'm not worried, I'm going slow and I'm very happy! This time tomorrow night we'll be snuggled up with a fire and a glass of wine watching it snow outside. I can't even wait!!! Can you tell I'm excited? I AM :)

So... no blogging until I get home because we have no computer access. You'll just have to imagine what we are up to and I promise to fill you all in when I get back home to Orange County... IF I come back home that is ;)

Oh the weather outside is frightful. But the fire is so delightful. And since we've no place to go...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Christmas Shopping

I just have to say that I had a GREAT day today!

I got up this morning and my father surprised me by making me a yummy omelet for breakfast. I can't remember when he has ever done that before and it really touched me. I think that since I have been staying with him (this past month) he see's me working long hours and is worried. He has been telling that I need to eat better...but I get up at 5:30, shoot off to work by 6:30, then work a 10 hour day and get home around 6:dark thirty. Sometimes when I'm attending a local event I'm home even later... I can have some long days I tell ya. Anyhoo... after breakfast I took off to Fashion Island (Newport Beach) to spend the day with my mother and sister. Our day consisted of a delicious lunch at Tommy Bahamas Grill, power shopping for a few hours, a starbucks run and a stop at the pet store. They had to pull me out of there because I fell in love with the worlds cutest puppy :)~ Mannnnnn he was the sweetest, cuddliest softest bundle of fur I had seen. I'm still thinking of going back tomorrow for another peek.

Jeana Keough just called and left me a message about a "Housewife" function tomorrow at the Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo. She mentioned something about Dr. Ambe...I'll have to get more info because I could really give a rip about going to a botox/plastic surgery function. yes I would love to see Jeana, Vicky and Tammy -Jeana is the glue that holds all the girls together, the peace keeper. You couldn't get me to spend time with some of those other ummmm ladies. When the camera is on you they smile but if they see you on the street... well I'll just say they are not so nice and I'll leave it at that. My mother always said "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". You know sometimes it's so HARD to be quiet and NOT say what you really want to say. Sometimes I had a hard time shutting up when there was a camera on me but then I would think... what would my mother, kids etc think if I did or said that...and closed my mouth. Yesssssss I know I slipped up a time or two. Opps =^.^=

Maybe one night I'll sit here with a glass of wine and just let it all go????? Hummm that could be fun! LOL

So they finally let you all know that Laurie is leaving. I hate fake people... did i say that out loud? Bad Quinny :P~

Willow Creek
This week is filling up FAST! I have a restaurant review on Wednesday, the Resort at Pelican Hill invited me for an opening on Thursday evening and Friday my mom, sister and I are meeting up in Fashion Island for day of shopping, lunch and an ornament exchange. FUN!

Don't you just HATE it when you have an argument with your kids? Shannon and I had a heated discussion on Saturday (while I was in Costco shopping, not a great place to cry and get upset believe me) and it is still bothering me. I won't get into the details but I hope we get it all worked out soon... I hate conflict.

Tim and Mason I'm getting ready for Christmas up in the mountains with Tim and the dogs. I HAVE to get a picture to share with you of his 3 Queensland Heelers.

Meet my Beautiful Daughter!

Shannon wasn't shown on the show at all. She lives up in Eureka (northern California) with her husband and 4 children...yes you heard me right, I have 4 grandchildren!!!

I guess having a grandma on the show wasn't exactly what Bravo had in mind for a Real Housewife. But hey, that is my REALITY. As much as I still feel 40 something, the fact is, I am 53 years old, have 2 kids and 4 grandchildren whom I adore. I just got home from spending the Thanksgiving holiday with all of them plus...get high school sweetheart,Ex-husband,Shannon's father in a tiny cabin in Willow Creek and I LOVED it!

It was sort of like the old sitcom "Green Acres" minus Arnold the pig, with me from the OC alongside Tim (The EX) from Arcata. Truth be told, I just might be falling in love with him all over again.

More to come on that later.

Where to Start???

Hi there, Quinn Fry here!

So many people have been emailing me with questions about my life after the filming of Season 3 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, that I decided to start a blog. I figured that inside the blog invironment I could ramble on, vent, chat, yell, laugh and cry all at once. I've never done a blog before, so bear with me as I get the hang of this.

Currently I am living at my fathers place in San Clemente where I'm parked temporarily because I sold my home and well... I guess I am waiting. Jeana Keough (love that woman) sold it for me last month for my asking price of $739,000 in just 2 weeks! The catch? The new owners wanted my "style" so they offered me full price but they wanted everything, furniture, plants, accessories etc... Walking away from my beautiful home has been stressful, in fact these past 6 months have been like a roller coaster!!! My son, Colin, graduated from San Clemente High School in June, is working at In-N-Out and attending Saddleback College and he just moved in with his dad. My sweet kitty (at the same time) came up missing... Colin and I are both very VERY sad :(

So I lost my home, son & kitty all around the same time. Not good!
