Carols Fernandez schools you on his childhood memories.

We here at love back to school. So much, in fact, that we asked some of our favorite Bravo celebrities to share their 'back to school' stories. For more on this series, click here. bts_11_320x240.jpg

When I was a kid, I remember coming down to Miami every summer to visit my grandmother and family. We would play, swim, laugh and eat to excess everyday. Then Labor Day would start to approach and I would start looking forward to going back home. I would wonder what my friends had done for the summer and what the school year would be like. And once there was a cool breeze in the air and classes were in full swing, I would miss the days of fun in the sun. So my advice to you is get out there and enjoy today! P.S. After I had sent my blog the other week week, I had realized that the judges were not too impressed with C.J.'s salad. Something about too salty and not coming together. How did C.J. escape the salad curse? Ha! Have fun, stay safe, and stay tuned....
