She Did it!

Hannah Curlee & Olivia Ward

Hannah Curlee & Olivia Ward: Sisters, Biggest Losers, LOVE!

Dear Olivia,

I can’t tell you HOW EXCITED I was to watch you become THE BIGGEST LOSER last night on live television. Once you & Hannah were officially the last two at the top (Although Irene looked GREAT!) I started getting SO nervous…. Was this it!? Were you REALLY going to do it?

And you did! From 261 lb to 132 lb– you changed your life- much more than just your body.

You are beautiful. You were before & you are now. Everyone at LTT is SO proud of you. I am only sad that Moon wasn’t in the US to watch it live with me. And by that I mean, watch it 3 hours later than I did since she’s on the West Coast & I’m on the East.

CONGRATS & you’re paying next time we go out for drinks (*wink*)


PS: Mr. Choice is kinda upset you didn’t accept his FB friend request from long ago so he said he won’t celebrate your win. #he’smean

Don’t Forget: The Biggest Loser Finale tonight

Last time we saw Olivia (on TV) at 149 pounds!

Dear Twilight,

Don’t you DARE forget to watch LTT friend Olivia on The Biggest Loser Season 11 FINALE tonight!

If you haven’t been watching, Olivia & Hannah made HISTORY as the first sisters to make it to the finale. They are the TOP TWO!!! One more contestant (Either Jay or Irene) will join them tonight in the final competition. I have NO idea how it happens as I’ve never watched before, but I’m SOOOOOO EXCITED to see how Olivia looks. (PS Moon got to spend some time with her a few weeks back- LUCKY! They went out to eat. They had salads. DUH!)

Anyway, Olivia is a big Twilight fan so that’s reason #1 you should watch. And furthermore she is OUR friend. Met first online through LTT then in real life. We’re SOOOOOO EXCITED to see her tonight (well, I am. Moon is in Europe. Bitch)



PS: It’s on in the US at 8pm ET on NBC. DO IT DO IT DO IT!

My Twilight Friends

I’m feeling mushy. And since many of you have “known” me for 2 and 1/2 years now & we’re most likely on the same “cycle,” I bet you’re feeling mushy this week too. So bear with me, please:

Dear Twilight,

I’ve been thinking about you & all that we’ve been through. I’ve been thinking about our ups & our downs and all the in betweens. The good times, the bad. The funny and the not so funny. And without a doubt, no question about it, the best thing that has come from you is the relationships you’ve brought me. Of course that starts with my friendship with Moon & how dear she is to me, but it continues on to so many others. There’s @CalliopeBlabs who I haven’t seen yet in 2011 but was reminded to email after her gmail account got hacked & she sent out some spam:


I chose this picture to represent Calliope because when I googled "Calliopeblabs & UC" SO MANY amazing pictures & manips appeared. This one represents Calliope best. (She made it)

And it was @JenBrun‘s birthday yesterday & she tried to get Jimmy Fallon to wear a purple tie in her honor last night by tweeting him all day! (Maybe it happened. I’m writing this pre-show time!)

and of course (SPOILER ALERT) our very own Obird- Olivia made it to the FINALS on Biggest Loser! Have you SEEN this girl??? She looks amazing & mark my words: She’s going to WIN IT ALL. I just know it. It’s because she reads LTT. AND has Pocket Edward with her on the ranch. And also once met Rob. Oh and she works the hardest & stuff like that:

Anyway, I could go on and on and on, but I won’t because I’ll leave someone important out, but YOU people are why I like Twilight. At first it was Edward Cullen. Then it was Rob Pattinson. And now it’s people I met through Twitter then some in real life & some through chatting & some through emailing & some through comments. YOU ALL. {See. I’m mushy.}

So I thought I’d share this letter we got that also made me feel mushy. It’s about a real life LTT meet-up:

Dear LTT,

I’ve been a reader since that glorious day of SMeyer’s mention of you on her website. Thanks to LTT, I’ve spent many a boring morning at work getting back into the office chair after having fallen off from laughter. For reals. I read on my phone often, which makes me something of a lurker because commenting from my phone SUCKS. Every now and then though I pop in on a  regular old computer and both the posts and comments are usually hysterical. I will occasionally contribute, but usually I just read.

I’m from Seattle, WA (you may have heard of it?) originally and about a year ago, Hubby and I began discussing a move somewhere in the South. After much discussion, we narrowed our choice down to Nashville, TN. Having never been there (hubby has lived in town before meeting me) I was slightly apprehensive. What is the weather like? Where will I work? Do I have to join a church? Do they have coffee there? While reading comments on LTT, I came across some users that live in the Nashville area and decided to see if they would answer my questions. They did and as I began following @sassysmart, @and78 & @allryans on Twitter I started thinking that I could possibly have some friends if I were to make the move. Over the past ten months or so we’ve been talking about happenings and neighborhoods and parties and get togethers they were going to have without me. And then last month we got the call….Hubby got a job and we’re moving! This meant that I would finally get to meet my fellow LTTer’s IN REAL LIFE! @sassysmart and @and78 and I set up a meeting at a local restaurant and I seemed silly getting ready. I told Hubby that it felt like I was getting ready for a blind date. What if they don’t like me? What if I dress weird for Nashville? What if they spend the whole time talking to one another and I’m just sitting there? WHAT IF they are total
Twi-hard nerds that show up wearing a creepy Edward t-shirt and a wolfy bracelet and are NOT NORMAL?!?

I am happy to say that both are completely normal, and completely lovely. We sat for a few hours drinking dirty vodka martinis talking about books and LTT and Nashville life and it all put me at ease. @and78 even baked for me. (Best. Cookies. EVER.) I realized that I will have friends anywhere because of LTT. Maybe someday we’ll be the kind of women that have periodic regional meetups. Maybe some of you already do. I’m looking forward to meeting @allryans soon and hopefully other readers in the area. A big thanks to Moon & UC for creating a medium where I can make new friends. You girls are the best!

Love and Vampire Kisses,


After the jump please enjoy some of my favorite moments making new friends through LTT Continue…

Update on Biggest Loser & LTT friend Olivia

I failed so much & didn’t post this last week like I was supposed to. So technically this update is 1 week behind, but our darling real life friend through LTT, Biggest Loser contestant Olivia, is STILL kicking it week after week at the Ranch (she made it through this week too!)

Here, Olivia & Hannah are "Tempted" by delicious snacks which they declare "don't look as good as a hot guy" AMEN

Dear LTT Readers and Friends:

It’s time to give a lil blurb of our Olivia’s progress thus far, especially for all you non Biggest Loser watchers (shame on you for not watching. Glee Smee). Let’s see….since the show’s premiere on January 4th, we’ve learned that Olivia and her sister Hannah are two sassy, spunky women. They’ve often given the best one-liners of each and every show, with Hannah having a special gift for those hilarious quips.

We’ve fallen in love with Olivia’s relationship with her hubby, including seeing their reunion during the at home show, sharing his love letters to Olivia, and even watching his Valentine’s video message to Olivia. In Week 3 of this Biggest Loser Season 11, we’ve seen the mouth watering Bob Harper (@mytrainerbob), I mean incredibly competent, world class trainer, Bob Harper speak to the Team Purple Girls about their worry.

Olivia has even brought to the world and Sami Brady (aka, Allison Sweeney) the wondrous delicacy known as monkey bread. Olivia and Hannah have gone through MAJOR physical body changes and the dropping of sizes and have gone from being Team Purple, to the black team (or Team Blurple), and finally to the Blue Team, in last week’s airing.

Through all this and lots of blood, sweat and buckets and buckets of tears, Olivia has lost a whopping 81 pounds and over 231 of her beginning body weight, while Hannah has lost an amazing 76 lbs and 31% of her weight. We certainly can’t wait to see what the next few months bring us of our dearest friend. I just hope she doesn’t dissapear altogether. Gurrrll is looking skinnnyyy.

To follow along for weekly recaps/snarky commentary on each show of this Biggest Loser Season 11, please go to Letters 2 Team Purple

NOTE: Please pretend like the “Letters2” format is a totally new concept and also please ignore the fact that there seems to be a gap in some blogging in the month of Feb. I will make it up I assure you.

Watch this behind the scenes “Getting to know Olivia” video. (Girl needs to just  ADMIT on National television she’s a twihard who has pictures with Rob Pattinson already!)


Love and Tissue Boxes,
Jane Trigs @Janetrigs (also known as 1/2 of @DearTeamPurple)

We are SO Proud of you Olivia (And Hannah!) Keep kicking weekly ass & making us cry! Make sure you follow Olivia on Twitter & like her on Facebook!

Psst- keep sending in your stories/comments/blog posts/emails etc. from when you were a Twilight virgin! The contest runs through tomorrow!
