Before we get started today, I want to first take a moment to acknowledge the terror attack in Boston as well as the plant explosion in West, Texas.
Prayers going out to everybody affected by these 2 horrible instances.
God has a way of showing up in these times, and I pray people see and feel his presence.
On a much different note, tomorrow I have a HUGE giveaway.
Lots of prizes….and 1 winner takes all.
It’s gonna be good, so don’t miss it!
DANCING WITH THE STARS
Dancing With The Stars is doing a really good job thinking of ways to make the show new and different each week. This week each couple danced alongside a professional couple for 15 seconds of their dance, which means they had to be totally in sync.
And I’ve gotta say, this scared me. It scared me bad. 🙂
I thought Len had lost his ever-lovin’ mind.
However, I must say that Len knows what he was doing. I was pleasantly surprised, and it was such fun to see the couples dance side by side!
Ingo and Kym: Cha Cha / Danced with Tony and Emma
They danced to Lady Marmalade from Moulin Rouge.
Bruno said “Lady Marmalade got you in a bit of a jam.”
The bows and ruffles on the girls hineys reminded me of THIS dress that I’ve been seeing all over Blogland.The bow/ruffle on this dress is on the shoulder instead of the hiney (good choice), and I think it’s a really fun!
SCORE = 21
Jacoby and Karina: Jive / Dancing with Max and some chick (didn’t catch her name)
It was fun and the judges liked it a lot, and I do like watching him dance.
However, when he opens his mouth, he loses me.
I can’t put my finger on why, but his attitude just robs me the wrong way. Do y’all agree?
I will say this, the dude has got some serious ups.
He jumped clear over Karina’s head when she was pretty much standing straight up. CRAZY!
I thought the neon yellow and pink color combo in the costumes was so pretty,
and I found THESE earrings with the same color combo
They are SUPER cheap!
Victor and Lindsay: Vienesse Waltz / Dancing with Tristan and Emma
Victor was wronged by his lady friend this week, and it was really affecting him.
Man, we have all been there.
The unison portion of their dance was very good.
I was just sure that Lindsay was going to go all Janet Jackson on us and have a wardrobe
malfunction right here.
SCORE = 21
Ali and Mark: Samba / Tony and Whitney
No surprise here, the dance was really good.
And Aly is starting to win me over a bit.
The black and coral sequined costumes were so pretty! I own one tank that has sequins on the front of it, and I think it’s fun and a little bit fancy that it is so sparkly.
I found some other sequined items:
a military jacket with sequined sleeves HERE
a neutral sequined skirt HERE
a pink sequined shirt HERE (it’s 60% off…but still expensive!)
SCORE = 25
Sean and Peta: Quick Step / Tritan and Chelsea
I thought that the recorded piece of Sean imitating everything Tristan did was hilarious.
I also thought that was his best dance yet. BY FAR! And the judges agreed.
Len did tell him that he was “like a pigeon”. I have NO idea what he meant by that, but I’m pretty sure it was meant to be a compliment. 🙂
Way To Go Sean!
SCORE = 24
p.s. I do want to point out that several of you commented yesterday on my gold lame picture saying that at first glance you thought this was Sean.
Laughing. SO. Hard.
Kellie and Derek: Foxtrot / Anna and Henry
Okay…..who else here thinks that Derek came off looking like a total hiney-hole?
(pardon my language)
I’m here to tell you that he went all Ike Turner on sweet little Kellie.
I mean, DEREK! Who do you think you are?
Here he is throwing a tantrum.
At one point he even kind of threw himself up against the wall momentarily, and at another point he motioned for Kellie to come over to him in a way that made me think there seems to be a man with a super short temper under all of the spray tan, spandex, and glitter.
Still, in the end, they put together an amazing dance.
DL and Cheryl: Tango / Chelsea and Sasha
He definitely deserved to be the one to go home, but I do respect him for how he kept his cool all season as he was getting hammered by some of the judges. Way to keep it classy DL.
SCORE = 18
Cheryl’s all black costume inspired me to look for a perfect little black dress.
And I think I just might have found the PERFECT dress.
I know that’s a big claim, but I’m standing by it.
The dress is fantastic. Period.
It’s fun, it’s flirty, and it’s classic at the same time!
Now, it’s from the juniors section at Nordstrom, but it is GREATNESS! There are only 2 reviews, but they are both glowing! One is from an under 20 year old, and one is from a 50 year old!
I feel like it is a cut that would look great on every body type and every age, and it is only $52!
And the reviews say the fabric is good quality!
Another option for a little black dress HERE that is gorgeous.
Val and Zendaya: Argentine Tango / Anna and Max
That’s all I’ve got.
This girl is good.
SCORE = 29
Andy and Sharna: Paso Doble/ I didn’t catch the names of the professionals.
All I know is that the professional dude walked in wearing a cardigan without a shirt on.
Listen buddy, I’m a huge fan of the cardigan, and even I thought that was all sorts of wrong.
Andy came in on a zip line and I LOVED it.
He was Zorro for crying out loud, a role I’m assuming Andy never thought he would
get the chance to play.
The dance wasn’t nearly as good as last week, but I still adore him.
SCORE = 18
