I grew up in Missouri in a little town called Lathrop. It's about half-way between Kansas City and St. Joseph. In fact, Sexy Jim and I were married in St. Joe in the church my dad received his first communion. Cute, right? Anyhoo, I've done my fair share of shopping and "mall cruising" at the East Hills Mall. But now I'm just mortified for the place. Check this out.
The pros for the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars" have been revealed. The reigning champ won't be back, but his brother will. So will five-time champion Derek Hough and two-time winner Cheryl Burke, not to mention a few fresh faces. 12 pros were revealed yesterday on "Good Morning America" in anticipation of the 19th season premiere of DWTS on September 15th. Besides Derek and Cheryl, the returning pros will be Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, Mark Ballas, Tony Dovolani, Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd and Witney Carson. The new pros are Artem Chigvintsev, the winner of the U.K. version, who joined the DWTS troupe last season, Allison Holker, an Emmy-nominated choreographer, and Keoikantse Motsepe, a dancer from South Africa. ABC will announce the 12 new celebrity dancers on September 4th on GMA.

She may not love to have her picture taken, but my mommy is beautiful enough to be photographed every single day. Not that she would have time for that. My dad worked full time and traveled several days or weeks at a time. It wasn't until I was born that he settled down and started a construction company and began building custom homes in our area. What I'm trying to say is that my dad didn't change a single diaper. Mom changed diapers for twelve years straight. She was pregnant nine times with ten babies delivering eight of them and raised six children. She is a saint. Happy Birthday mommy!!
Oh! And my mom is a tree NUT. Pardon that pun, but my dad built our home in a pasture, but my mom has planted over 500 trees over the years, but this has to be my favorite "piece" in our yard at home. It shows how many miles away each of her little ones live from her house. That's including my sister Kelly, who lives across the street. No lie. And how cute is my mommy as a senior in high school? Soooo pretty!!
One thing I love watching is proposal videos. Anyone, anywhere, just creative. I love watching those. I found a new love though... Ever since I saw the vine of the dog eating dog food with human hands while wearing a hoodie a long time ago, these are now cracking me up. I think it's the music in the background. Honestly, I just don't think it would be as funny if they ate in silence. Anyhooo, enjoy!
My partner Dmitry with DancesportVA has worked hard to get me to bend in ways I haven't been bent since gymastics when I was about 8. If I had a nickle for every time I told him, "You know I'm not a trained dancer, right?" We're doing a Rumba and I absolutely love our routine - please come watch!! You can @ me on Twitter (@triciadeliciava) if you want to come by Z104 to get your tickets!!
My sweet Daddy, the one that loves peanut brittle, the one that gave me five brothers and sisters, the one that taught me to say my prayers at night, the one that has been playing poker every friday night for the past forty-plus years, the Paw Paw to 18 grandbabies is turning 73 today!! And this guy is still working full-time! In fact, he's building two houses right now!!! I love you Daddy!! Happy Birthday!
