For the past couple of years, the lives of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds and her husband Jim have been filled with bottles, diapers, and sleepless nights. During that time, they have had three babies — daughter Aspen, 23 months, and twin boys Hayes and Hart, four months — making their opportunities to have some adult time few and far between.
However, earlier this week, Edmonds announced on Instagram that things were about to change.
“It has been over 2 years since Jimmy and I have gone on a vacation together (we used to go all the time) In that time we’ve had 3 babies and are leaving them for the first time ever! I have so many mixed emotions about this, but mostly excitement,” wrote Edmonds.

The St. Louis mom went even deeper and explained that she and Jim planned a trip to Mexico when the twins were six weeks old, and at the time it seemed far away. She can’t believe that they actually went through with it, and they wouldn’t have done it if they didn’t have a good reason — their friends are having a vow renewal. Meghan added that she and her husband almost canceled several times, but they didn’t. And, she is glad because their marriage needs the trip “BADLY.”
In addition to having three kids in two years, during that time the couple has also relocated from Southern California to St. Louis, where Jim is a television broadcaster for the St. Louis Cardinals. They are also building a new house, and Meghan says that both she and her husband have quit jobs and started new ones.
However, their busy lives have caused them to become complacent and take each other for granted. Meghan says they are both constant fixtures in the marriage, but they are often ignored and in need of some “shining and buffing.” Meghan also wrote that they need “us” back, and they never realized they were missing.
The mom of three says she is looking forward to hanging out with her husband, and not having to worry about when the babies need to eat. She concluded by saying that she feels good, and she is ready for the trip. But, she already misses her babies.
For people who can’t hop a plane to Mexico, Meghan recommends a phone-free picnic in the park. She urged her fans to do whatever they can to work on their marriage.
According to Us Weekly, Meghan King Edmonds and Jimmy Edmonds got married in October 2014, and Jim has four other children from previous relationships.
