This week we traveled to my home state of Wisconsin to surprise the Arboleda Family. This family is amazing. Rex and Clare followed their dream and came over here from the Philippines with CJ, their oldest daughter, when she was just a baby. They bought a house and Rex got a job as a music teacher.
Rex not only teaches people about music and dance, but how to live a healthy lifestyle through the love of music and through the love of dance. It's one thing to be a teacher and teach kids the regular curriculum and it's another thing to think outside the box and to combat a bigger problem. Rex has brought it to our attention that one in four kids in America suffers from childhood obesity.
Hello, Superstars! The competition is heating up, and I am the last girl celebrity standing! Yay! Bode and I are in the final four, and our competitors are Max/Kristi, Julio/Brandi and Lisa/David.

There are many clouds in the sky today, but they are moving at a rapid pace, revealing sun every few minutes. Below me, hotel staff is cleaning the pools with a large machine that is traveling along the pool's bottom surface. It reminds me of those ...

Usually, I write to you while I'm building a house for a family on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. This time, my location is a bit more glamorous — the Bahamas! But my television experience is not glamorous in the least. It consists of hard work, both mentally and physically, and many of us are ...
Meeeeoooooowwwww! Ty, Michael, Ed, Paul and I traveled only a short distance to this week's destination, Phelan, Calif., to meet the largest family we have ever helped. There were at least 130 members of the Almquist family, although they are not the traditional family "members." I'll give you a hint - lions, tigers and reptiles, OH MY!
