The spring DWTS season is over, and my relaxation vacation is here! I was so excited to collaborate with Home Away this year for so many reasons! They have the best properties all around the world, this time we chose Maui, Hawaii. It is literally my favorite place to relax and enjoy family time. Especially after a long, grueling season!
This weeks blog post is all about my vacation, where to stay, where to go, what places to see, and what to pack for your ultimate getaway. I really suggest doing the Road to Hana (if you don’t get car sick), its about a 4 hour drive but its so worth it! I love love love the key lime pie at Tommy Bahama Restaurant, no joke I went there everyday for that scrumptious desert. If you stay at this Home Away location I recommend staying in Wailea Beach Villas or anywhere on the Wailea Beach! We always stay there at it has treated us so well! Hope this helps for your next ultimate getaway.

Where to stay:

Dancing With The Stars

This post is all about this incredible show. Today I’m talking about the week I had with Wanye and Lindsay and what we can expect from the remaining contestants.
Last week I was able to be with Wanye and Lindsay for trio week. We did a paso doble to an incredible song! As you probably all know Lindsay and I have known each other for a long time. She has always been the person I choose every time trio week comes around. We really work well together. Last time we had a paso it was with Alfonso and that was the dance that helped us win! I wanted to be that same thing for her and Wanye. Paso doble with one guy and two girls is pretty difficult. You have to make steps that make the man look strong but that also compliment the two ladies. Creating steps in paso that compliment one man and two woman takes time. Lindsay and I went back and forth with how we could make it interesting but still let Wanye shine. He was strong and commanded the stage, he came back stronger than ever! Unfortunately after they had an amazing night they were the ones to go home. I’m sad they got eliminated, I feel they had an incredibly close chance of winning the mirror ball. Proud of Lindsay and everything she did this season! Her choreo and the way she handled Wanye was so great!
Everyone who’s left is amazing too so it’s hard to tell who will win. The final contestants are all worthy of taking home the trophy. They have all worked hard to get where they are. The freestyles will determine who wins. I remember the finals very well with Alfonso. A lot of time is required to put together the best routine for your celebrity. For this final freestyle you have to make your celebrity shine above all the rest. Show America that they deserve to win and that they are the clear winner. Can’t wait to see everyone’s routines, it will be an amazing finale. Out of all the seasons yet that I’ve been apart of, this is definitely the most talented. Honestly, it’s anybody’s game! Good luck to the remaining contestants. Let me know your thoughts below and who you think will win this season of DWTS!
