Cast Blog: #FLIPPINGOUT

Survivor

Jenni encourages everyone to hang in there and pursue their dreams.

Some relationships start with a phone call. Gage called, I told Jeff he was offering free jeans, and the rest is history...

I feel like the old house that Jeff came back to and wants to fix up. My boyfriend is the guy you meet and want to be with forever. Jeff has a lot to say about someone he does not really know. What I don't know is what the future holds, but I have lots of reasons to smile. 

My ex husband is remarried, and I wish him well. I hope Jeffery can do the same, and Chris will be allowed to be in the past.   

Just rename this season "Survivor" -- Jeff is trying to survive the economy, and we all tried like lots of Americans to keep our paychecks coming. Sarah and Trace heard, "You're fired." Almost everyone seemed kissing close to a pink slip. 

Some dreams survive... many thanks to all who have downloaded my rap with Lil' John, Ray Ray, and Jay Monaco. Jeff's reverse encouragement did not put a stop to Magical Girl, and to all out there like me in need of a little cheerleading, listen to my lyrics and HANG IN THERE! 

Stacey tried to be mini-Jeff and play Jenni the pinata. I guess at the end of the world it will be me and the cockroaches. 

Surviving is the theme here, and Jeff I are doing another show called Interior Therapy. Looking at ways our thinking creates our living atmosphere and the possibilities for changes for the better. It's is all about Jeff using his skills and drive to make people smile.

Citrus, Jeff's rental property, is a lesson for Megan in Jeff Lewis Property Management.
I bet she does not think it involves hands-on trash can super skills.
"If we're at a job site and something needs to be done, Jenni and I just get our hands dirty and we do it."
I guess I'm missed.
I have major dumpster skills, so smelly trash cans are no biggie. Megan thinks being an assistant is a little bit of a step backwards for her.
As Jeff's assistant I have had to happily go backward and forward.
