A Thank You, a Birthday Party, and “What’s Next?”

Thank you all for joining me on this amazing adventure.  I’m so thankful that our last dance – to rock ‘n’ roll – earned our highest judges score this season.  The judges were actually kind to me about our choreography, and I had a blast!

It’s hard to know exactly how to process this whole thing.  On one hand, I am so sad to be voted off.  I enjoyed having this opportunity to be on the show.  I had a great time, I got to meet a lot of new people, and I loved to be able to dance again!

But on the other hand, I now get more time to spend with Tripp!! (Thanks, Mom, Dad, Willow, Molly and Karen for keeping him for me so many hours!) Tripp and I are very excited to get home to the snow!! I even got to spend the later part of my birthday with Tripp and my some of my family! I came home from traveling, to a perfectly decorated house, that Tripp had done all by himself!!

Also, my dad let Tripp pick out what he wanted for a surprise party for me that my baby boy had planned. He picked out cheetah print plates, cups, napkins and streamers, yellow smiley face balloons, birthday hats, and caramel apples! He definitely knows his mama! He even got a piñata, and filled it with bubble gum, hand sanitizer, chapstick, bouncey balls, and fancy chocolate! I have never seen Tripp so excited and proud to have put it all together, and it was one of those “mom moments” that I will truly never forget! (I’ll post pictures in a bit!!) I’m so grateful to have such an amazing little boy, he is such a little blessing. I’m glad I’ll be able to have even more time with my son before he has to go to preschool!

This “All Stars” was a different experience than the first time around. The competition was insane! It was a completely different show than the first time I was on! The stage, costumes, and the cast were a lot more extravagant!! It made me even more humbled and thankful to be have been asked to be there. I felt more confident, more excited about the dances, and even more thankful to the people who showed such amazing support for me.

In the post DWTS interviews, the reporters always ask “what’s next?”  Honestly, am not 100% sure. I know God has much more in store for not only Tripp and me, but my whole family! I’m excited to spend the holidays with Tripp, and the rest of my family in Alaska!!! Oh, and in a couple of weeks, look for us at the DWTS All Stars Finale.

Thank you to all my supporters, especially my friends and family and all of you who pulled “all nighters” voting for me!  I appreciate you all!

I wouldn’t have gotten past week one without you guys!!! Thank you again!!!

    I loved watching you and Mark dance again. I’m glad the judges were nice to you. You always looked so beautiful and did an awesome job of everything. Sounds like Tripp did an amazing job preparing your party – what a wonderful little guy. What a great memory for you! I’m sure God has marvelous things in your future.

    Bristol,could you please do a blog on Stacey Dash?She is an African American actress(starred in Clueless) who has recently been bashed like no other after she came out and said she will be voting for Mitt Romney.Blacks everywhere are saying horrible things about her and tweeting bad stuff as well.They think just because she is black that she should vote for Obama but she made it clear that her skin color will not define who she votes for.The same thing happened to Nicki Minaj a few months ago when she said she supported Romney in a rap of hers.This issue bugs me a lot because I am a mixed girl who is 18 and do not want people thinking I have to be a Democrat because of my skin color.I’d love to hear what you have to say about this because I know you will support Stacey Dash.

    I’m really glad you enjoyed it. If you enjoy dancing, why don’t you take dancing lessons. The judges said you were the most improved! If you come back to DWTS for third time maybe you can win it!

    Tripp is so cute- he did well getting ready for your birthday celebration. It was great seeing you dance and getting to vote for you. I hope your reality show comes back.

    That is so cute that Tripp filled the piñata with stuff that you like, and not just candy; that just shows how much you mean to him! :) Love you, Bristol, and you family, too! And I’m looking forward to you coming back to DWTS: All-stars for the season finale!
