Hey everyone!

I hope you watched last night! To be first out of the gate was tough, but we brought it!
I’m happy with our paso doble. It was a rough week and we worked on a lot of things. I was really happy we were able to bring another level on the dance floor. I wanted to please the judges.

I’m so psyched about our 29! We got our first 10s! It’s completely crazy to be getting these kinds of scores! I’m honored with those scores and I hope you guys just continue to enjoy the performances.

I know I have a lot of stuff to work on though. Len [Goodman] said I am too similar every week. I’m not offended at all by his critcism. He knows what ballroom is all about and he’s just giving some words of advice to think about and to help improve on, so we’ve got to work on things still. It’s never going to be enough.

 

We went for a very traditional paso doble look with the costumes. It was a real gypsy look going on and I liked it! Mark went for the matador look and I had the cape with a flowy skirt. Hopefully I used it and worked it enough!

 

I loved Adam Carolla and his unicycle! It was definitely…different! It was fun. He knows how to have a good time and put on a show. We all had a laugh about it!

 

Last night was also special because my husband made it in to see me perform! It was fun for him to see the show live for the first time and having him here gives me a little more confidence when you know someone is in the audience pulling for you! He was kind of sitting in my trailer while I was getting ready for the show and I was like, “You have to go sit down because they’re going to give your seat away!” I think he’s excited and he knows we’ve worked really hard. He’s been very supportive, so it’s great to do well in front of him!

Thanks to everyone who voted for us! See you all tonight! Keep your fingers crossed!
