Jodie Sweetin knows how to make her mother proud!

The Fuller House star and pro Keo Motsepe also earned their first perfect score of the season, and she just had one thing to say: “Mom, I did it!”

After the show, she told PEOPLE she’d set a goal of getting perfect 10s this week. “I think we ve done that every week. We said alright, this is what we re going to do this week, and we ve accomplished it,” Sweetin told PEOPLE.

Though she was eventually eliminated at the end of the episode, Sweetin, 34, got plenty of praise from the judges, with Len Goodman saying no dance from her has made him “so happy.”

His fellow judge Bruno Tonioli praised Motsepe for his vision.

“You were really inspired Keo. Creatively it was a really tour de force. You conducted the proceeding very well,” said Tonioli.

Sweetin said the dance “felt amazing.”

“I literally laid everything inside of me out on that floor. I’m going to go back and scoop it up later,” she said.

In her exclusive PEOPLE blog, Sweetin opened up for preparing for the demanding dance.

“A lot of our dances have been really emotional and intimate, but this week we are dancing with props and some of the troupe,” said Sweetin on the broadcast. “That’s been fun but also makes rehearsals a little more difficult.”

Sweetin faced hard competition Monday and wasn’t the only star to earn a perfect 30 out of 30. Ginger Zee followed suit with a powerful performance that equally wowed the judges.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
