"You can't be surprised," she said. "You know, you can't ever go into it expecting anything. And so for me, all I could do is focus on my dance, my partner and this experience. And this was an experience that I never thought I would have been able to do. And it was. Such a joy. And I honestly can walk away with a smile on my face, and that's the truth."

Her partner, Alan, told reporters that he was so impressed by how intensely the mom of three rehearsed. "She works so hard, and I'm so proud of her," he said after the show. "And honestly, she grew so much, you know, especially after a dance like tonight. I'm just so impressed with Jessie and it is really sad that the journey is over, but we became such good friends and honestly, I'm going to cherish the season."

Jessie said that she is looking forward to spending Halloween with her kids—Vivianne, 8, Eric Jr. 7, and Forrest, 4—who she shares with husband Eric Decker.

She revealed that her youngest child is wearing a Michael Jackson costume, Vivianne "wants to be an Olympian," and Eric Jr. plans to dress up like a footballer. Meanwhile, she will don cat ears and whiskers and Forrest wants her former NFL player husband to be Freddie Mercury.

After spending several weeks in LA, Jessie is happy to be headed back to Nashville. "I'm excited to just kind of have a little bit of normalcy again," she admitted. "I'm excited to get home and make them dinner and get up with them, take them to school, like the little things that you just as a mom love."
