"Sleep safe and keep hydrated, no Advil or Aleve," Polizzi texted in an exchange Farley posted to Instagram Christmas night. "No pushing on the toilet either."
"Yes mom!" replied Farley.

It's not every awards show where the ratio of cowboy hats per head outnumbers, well, everything else. Throw in a lot of boots and big hair and songs referencing various types of automobiles, and we reckon your Honky Tonk Badonkadonk's definitely at the CMA Awards.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a mom, author, entrepreneur and star of MTV's Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWoww. She's blogging for PEOPLE.com as she competes on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Sasha Farber.
Hello dancers! This post is so bittersweet to me. As I type this on my iPhone, I'm currently sitting in a massage chair getting a pedicure. FINALLY! They told us as dancers we shouldn't get our toes done so that our feet are hard and strong.
This is my first Monday not being a part of DWTS and I have a mix of emotions. I miss everyone so much. I feel like throughout the whole experience we had all became a dysfunctional family, and we all had no idea what the hell we got ourselves into.

One thing is clear on this season's Dancing with the Stars: Bill Engvall hasn't lasted this long in the competition because of his stellar dancing skills.
"It's about your fan base," Engvall, 56, told reporters backstage after Monday night's show, which sent Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi packing. "It's about popularity."
So, what, exactly, has made the comedian click with viewers?
"I don't have big time celebrity friends – I'm just a guy," Engvall explained. "Yes, I'm a 'celebrity,' I'm on the show. But if you went home with me, you'd be like, 'This guy's not a celebrity. He drinks his coffee in the backyard and walks out in his bathrobe to get the paper.' I think that's what they relate to. I'm just a regular guy."

As hard as it was to accept, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tried to look on the bright side after her surprising elimination Monday from Dancing with the Stars.
"I'm happy and I'm grateful," she told PEOPLE backstage. "The show showed a different side of me, the mother side of me. And this whole experience has been so amazing. Everybody on the show is so amazing. I love them."
But the disappointment was evident, as she began to get choked up.
"I'm really sad to say goodbye to everybody," the Jersey Shore star, 25, admitted. "I just wasn't ready to go yet."

It was a night of overall high scores on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but in the end, one couple had to go home.
The two couples in jeopardy were Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber, along with lowest scoring couple, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater.
And the results? Polizzi and Sasha Farber were eliminated in yet another shocking dismissal, closely following Christina Milian's surprising farewell a couple of weeks ago, despite their earning high scores.
