How hilarious were those 80’s outfits???!!! Hideous, right? I mean, the teasing, the crimping, the rubber bracelets… it was all working. And I loved Bob’s step class. Jillian’s team break-dancing?? All of it was just fantastic. Ed and Bob in competing short shorts. And Jill’s leopard stretch pants were stand-outs for me. And I gotta admit – I was sent back in time getting to drive that Delorian. Because who doesn’t LOVE that movie??? A side note, is that my hair was teased so high, that I literally had to scooch low in the seat so as not to ruin my hairstyle by rubbing it against the roof of the car.
we had so much fun dressing up, and getting into the 80’s spirit. And it probably couldn’t have come at a better time. On the heels of all that drama and stress in the house, it was nice for everyone to have a break – to get their minds off of the game and the voting was a welcome relief. And even then, as you saw, emotions were still riding high. At the weigh-in you saw a lot of that. it's so hard to see them all work so hard - to see such continued success on the scale, and yet it's not enough to stay above the yellow line. it's heartbreaking.
I've watch a couple reality shows (yay, Top Chef is back!!!) and yet, i imagine no matter how many you've watched, being in one is so different. when you're in the middle of the drama, drowning in it, it must be impossible to get a full perspective on the big picture - and what the best decision is in that moment. so many factors weigh on you, that I'm sure later seem so minimal. I ran into Jackie and Dan (BL5) at Bob's birthday earlier this year. Jackie said it best - it's so easy to look back and see what would have been the smartest move, the best way to vote, things you could have done differently. But when you're in the thick of things? not always easy to see clearly.
i love coleen!!! she was so great to get to know on campus, and I was so happy to see how fantastic and happy Coleen seems. Celebrating her new life, her new body with her boyfriend and her family. And Jerry look so great too! She had such a great shopping spree at Macy’s, and all those clothes looked so good on her. Yay coleen! I’m so happy for her!
