Big Brother 16 - Recap - Episode 8

We open with the fallout from the POV.... Brittany calls Paola out for throwing the competition.  Paola gets defensive and said she didn't throw the competition.  Devin confirms he asked her to, and confirms that, but says she didn't do it.  She calls Devin a liar.  Then Zach gets up and gives a big speech about how much he doesn't like Devin.

Frankie feels betrayed by Zach for "putting him on blast" when Zach said "he wasn't sure how Frankie would vote".  Um... what's so bad about that?  Anyway, Frankie's very dramatic about it... I'm just going to leave it at that.

Paola and Zach have a ridiculous argument over whether they deserve to be in the house, who's a liar... basically it was stupid.

Meanwhile, Devin decides to add a new member to the alliance without bringing the whole alliance together to talk about it first (ahem... dictatorship).  They bring Hayden in, and Devin tells him about the Bomb Squad and asks him if he wants to be a part of it.  What else are you going to do in that situation but say yes?!  Can you imagine the reaction if Hayden had said no?

As it starts to become aparent that Zach is going to stay, Frankie, for whatever reason, decides it would be a good idea to fill Devin in on this.  I still don't understand why.  I mean, Devin is nuts... giving him information like that is like throwing a can of gasoline on a fire.  Immediately, Devin denounces the Bomb Squad (might I point out, this is the second time this game he's done that), and tells Frankie he's picking everyone off one by one.  So there's your reward Frankie.

After two lengthy nominee speeches, the houseguests vote, and "Pao Pao" is voted out.  Thank goodness.  I don't think I could take another week of that girl.  Although, I will say, I did enjoy her friendship with Donny... and his "goodbye" message to her was absolutely sweet.  When Paola leaves the house, Julie asks her about whether she threw the competition.  Paola sort of sputters over her answer and says she's not sure if she threw it or not.  Huh?  Were you drunk?  Why wouldn't you know?

On to HOH, it's a sort of croket type challenge.  And the winners are..... Derrick and Nicole.  I'm kind of happy about both of those options!!

Julie tells us that the houseguests are now wearing "activity trackers" so you can log in to see how active or lazy your favourite houseguest is.  I barely do that for myself.. so I'm not sure I really care how active they are... BUT... Julie does say it will impact the game.  Suspense!

Nominees and #TeamAmerica's first challenge come Sunday night!!!

(PS - anyone else happy this episode was a little less focused on Devin?)

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Travelling on a Budget Series - Part 1 - Accomodations

My family and I have been fortunate to be able to travel regularly.  I often get asked about how we can afford to travel.  I'm going to share my money saving tips to help you reach your travel goals.  I have a lot of information to share so this will be a series of posts.  In this, part 1, I will be sharing my tips specific to accommodations - I will follow up with tips on flights, eating on vacation, activities/entertainment, and rental cars.

Before a continue, a little disclaimer - It's important to have an in depth understanding of your own budget.  It's important not to travel "beyond your means".  So that being said - Understand that in addition to my regular full-time job, I have taken part-time jobs in the past (fitness instructor, paid contributor to blogs, etc) to help us save for vacation.  I am not a financial adviser or any kind of financial professional, but my best recommendation is to go through a budgeting exercise first, before you start planning…
