Blue Monday - DWTS

It's Blue Monday! I'm so glad you came.

Please place the blue bird logo at the top of your post so that others easily find your Blue Monday post. Remember to place the link for Blue Monday; much as I hate to, I will DELETE those who do not follow this simple rule.

For all of the instructions, just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS.


Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) is one of my favorite television programs. I "watch" it every Monday night by telephone with my friend, Belle Jo, who lives in Mississippi. We chat during the commercials!

Tonight is the final episode of DWTS, and it will be something worth watching! The remaining three couples are so talented that anyone of them could win the coveted, giant trophy ball. I have noticed that my favorite color blue shows up in their costumes. For today's Blue Monday, I'm presenting some pretty blue costumes, worn by the three finalists.

Here's Derek Hough and Nicole Scherzinger during week 3. Look at those high leaps! They are the favorites to win. Nicole was a dancer before DWTS, so she has an edge.

One of the judges, Bruno Tonioli, said that Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were a "symphony in blue." Erin has steadily improved each week.

Anna Trebunskaya and Evan Lysacek show beautiful extensions with their long arms and legs. Isn't her blue gown just lovely? Evan already knows a good bit about the art of movement as he won a gold medal for ice skating.

Do you watch DWTS? Who do you think will win?

Happy Blue Monday!

Hello Sally,
Last week you invited me to join you on Blue Monday! Here I am! I hope you like what I put together.
You captured terrific moments from DWTS. Unfortunately, this year I was unable to keep up!
Hope you have a wonderful day!

ellen b. said...

Lot of pretty blue Sally. I haven't been watching the show this season. Enjoy the finale!

LV said...

Another great idea for Blue Monday. I watched some of the episodes but not all. I missed tonight's as I was watching a country music special.

Diann said...

No, I haven't been watching it this year. but, I really miss seeing all the outfits!

Happy blue Monday!!

Shirley said...

Yes, I watch it every week. Sorry to see it end! But I think probably Derek and Nicole will win!

Loui♥ said...

xinex said...

Great action pics! They have beautiful outfits....Christine

Great choices Sally. I love the blue costumes.

It reminds me of Lady D., she loves to wear blue dress/gowns.I love their blue costumes.

Eden said...

Hi, Sally! Beautiful pictures. I love watching Dancing with the Stars here too and can't wait to see the upcoming tenth season.

Happy Blue Monday

Barbara Jean said...

I do not watch it, but the pictures you have are beautiful!

Thanks for hosting and have a great week!

Marie said...

God morning Sally. Wow what gorgeous dresses!!!!

Anne Fannie said...

Happy Blue Monday!!

Unknown said...

Hi Sally! This is my first time linking up with Blue Monday...I look forward to meeting lots of great bloggers!

I don't watch DWTS but my aunt does and she keeps us all updated on Facebook! :)

Hope you have a great Monday!


The Tablescaper said...

I think it's great that you "watch" the show over the phone with your friend. How fun! Technology is great.

eileeninmd said...

DWTS has been a realy popular show. The outfits are beautiful. Thanks for hosting this fun meme, Sally.

Maharlikah said...

Had my first Blue Monday post. Have a nice day everyone!

aspiritofsimplicity said...

I don't watch the show but I talk to so many others who do that I feel as if I do too.

Lynn said...

I've never seen the show, but it looks like a lot of fun!

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I hope I see you this Saturday. ;-)

I really don't enjoy watching much television, but I have watched DWTS this season because my best friend loves it. However, she won't be on the phone during the show. I am allowed to speak with her when it is over.

My favorite pair is Anna and Evan, but I suspect Derek and Nicole will win. I am really okay with any of the three couples because they are all great.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, Yes, I do watch this show. I love the dancing. Both of the couples you have shown today are two of my faves. I believe that Nicole and Derek will win. They can really dance well together. The top three are all deserving to be in that position. Bill watches this show too. Erin is a gator, so of course, he is hoping she will win. Sometimes my sister calls during a show and we chat for one minute and hang up. Beverly is right. I don't like to watch the show and talk on the phone. smile!

Have a wonderful blue Monday.
Love ya, Jeanne

Jeanne said...

Oops, all 'three' of the couples are terrific. Great blue costumes.
LOL, Me again.

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

I think Eric Hough and his partner are likely to win! Very exciting and great dancing all around!

Auntie E said...

My Mom use to love that show. I really have not been able to watch it since her passing.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sally, I am looking forward to the finale. I love watching that show.

•°°• IcyBC •°°• said...

I haven't watch DWTS for a while since I couldn't take the whining from Kate "something" about paparazzi and blaming them for her inability to perform..but I like the show very much!

Kathryn said...

Hi Sally!
Not a DWTS watcher but I do love dancing! Used to love watching ballroom dancing with Juliet Prowse as the host. Probably where this show got its start. Great pics!
Have a wonderful day!

❀~Myrna~❀ said...

Wonderful blue costume pics ! I hope your favorite couple wins .

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I love that show Sally and the costumes are amazing! Love those blues! Cindy

Barb said...

Hi Sally, the pictures are lovely. Love those gowns. I have never seen this show....don't watch much network television.

Some dancers they are. Wow!

Barb ♥

Cindy said...

Love DWTS! Hard to decide my fav this time. Happy Blue Monday :)

Hi Most Blue Smiling One! Oh, I like to watch DWTS, but am not faithful to it, so I'm not up on the couples. These are some pretty blues on their costumes, but sometimes I'm amazed at the barely there costumes on the gals! :)
Be a sweetie and hope you're doing well,
Shelia ;)

Ann said...

Those blue outfits are dreamy!. I haven't kept up with this years show, but I'll watch the final one. Happy Blue Monday.

Apron Senorita said...

Happy Blue Monday to you. I want Evan to win!!!

SouthernGal said...

I usually watch the first hour on Monday (before 24 comes on) and then watch the 2nd night results (at least the end to see who gets kicked off). Love the show. Since this is the last season for 24 I'll be able to watch the entire thing next season!

Love the costumes. It is as much fun seeing them as it is the dancing. How wonderful that you get to share it with your friend long distance. How fun is that?

Happy Blue Monday to you and thank you for hosting!

Hi Sally, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and leaving your kind comment on my "Bluebird Bottle Project, so "TWEET" for my first Blue Monday!

Fifi Flowers said...

Love to dance... but I hate to watch TV... but I might have to take a peek since it's at the end... ENJOY!!!

peggy gatto said...

I loved your DWTS pictures!!!
I always enjoy my mondays!

jlshall said...

Neat post, Sally! I don't really watch the show, but I'd definitely vote for Evan. I loved his skating, so his dancing must be wonderful, too. Have a great Blue Monday and a terrific week!

Marice said...

great photos indeed! though I havent heart of that :) thanks for sharing Sally!

Lorrie said...

Hi Sally, DWTS is always on at our house too. It's fun to watch the dancers evolve as the season progresses. Your blue costumes are just great.

Diane at Crafty Passions said...

Love the gowns the shade of blue is sooo nice!

Diane said...

Hi Sally and thanks for stopping by Pittypat Paperie. Come again sometimes.

I love this idea of Blue Monday. How cute. I look forward to linking up again next week.


Dimple said...

DWTS is one show I enjoy. There aren't many! But as to who will win, I hope Evan, but it could be any of the three.

Thanks for the visit!

Mary Bergfeld said...

Hi Sally, I don't watch DWTS but I always read about it the following day. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...MAry

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I came over to see what you reaction was last night of the dancing. I think the judges were a bit harsh and they want Nicole to win. I knew Len would hate Erin's free style dance. I told Bill he would give them an 8, and he did. I am sorry the show is ending. I enjoy it so much.
Have a happy day.
Love ya, Jeanne

B i r g i t t a said...

Oh yes - I love this program too. And my favorite is So you think you can dance - Mia Michaels wow - the But dance - wowo wow wow ...
Nowerdays I am a fan of dance, ballet and contemporary dance
Sorry I missed Blue Monday this time :)

Nikki (Sarah) said...

I just love love love those chickens or birds at the top of this page...what the heck are they anyways? I've never seen anything like them...ok....dancing with the stars...can't speak to my sister when the show is on..she's totally hooked.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally you are right. They should just have given the trophy to Nicole and get it over with. HA! She is a fantastic dancer. There have been a few like her. I knew Brook would win right from the get go too. Now she is the female announcer. She is beautiful.

I hope all is well with you my friend.

Love ya, Jeanne

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, thanks so much for your sweet wishes for Mr. Magpie's birthday! He read and loved every single one, and you all made his day complete!

Love you and hope you have a very Happy Memorial Day!


Sheila :-)

Charlotte said...

Great blue post, Sally. We watch DWTS also and predicted who would be in 1st, 2nd & 3rd place. They all were very good.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

♥ Kathy said...

I don't watch it Sally but my MIL never misses it :) I hope you had a great week!

Anonymous said...

I've been a fan of DWTS from the moment it first aired! I missed some of the Mon. night shows this season, cuz 24 was on part of the time DWTS was on. It was the last season for 24...and I've loved it, too! I figured the former Pussycat Girl would win, cuz she was a dancer...but the other two were good,too!! I love it that you and a buddy watch it together via phone conversations!!:)

Re: your comment about my neighbors and when I'm taking photos for those crazy posts. Usually, I wait until no one is outside (they may be peeking from windows, though!), however, on the day I did the Pig Shoot :) there were folks replacing a street sign at the top of our cul de sac. They did keep an eye out on me as I crawled around on the yard with the pigs and my camera! :) They just thought I was a crazy old gal with nothing better to do....they were right!

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!! L, dana

Jeanne said...

Hello Sally, thank you for your visit today. I wanted to wish you and your family a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

I pre-posted Blue Monday because we are going to Fl. for our grandson's HS graduation. He need lots of support because his mom has passed away and I am sure he will be thinking of her on his graduation day. My daughter is giving him a little party.

We will be home on Wednesday night.
Maybe we can talk on Thursday. I so enjoy chatting with you my friend.

Hugs, Jeanne

Beautiful blue clothing! Happy Memorial Day! Mary
