Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I've decided to sell my wedding gown. My beautiful, fabulous Barcelona gown. When I picked my gown up from the bridal salon, I thought to myself, I will have my gown forever.. it's just too special to ever, ever part with.

I mean, I still put it on at least once a month and sit in it and watch TV, twirl in front of the mirror and freak my neighbors out when I go to check the mail in it. Crazy right? I know but it makes me smile. One time my Hubby came home early and I had it on with my veil on, no less. He just laughed and I was like "what?", as if it was totally normal for me to be sitting in the living room with my wedding gown on.


Anyhoo, I'm finally at a place that I can part with it. Hopefully, it will bring as much joy and fabulousness to another brides wedding day as it did mine.

I think this Mizrahi dress is darling.. very reminiscent of something Marchesa would do. I would have to take the hemline up just above then knee and it would be perfect!

Maybe I'm Crazy

I can't sleep and when I can't sleep, I watch ALOT of TV. So, last night, well early this morning, around 3ish, I happened across an infomercial for "Insanity". I was sucked in immediately. I mean with Halle's bod as my inspiration, I figured this would be a great workout to that end.

It DOES look extremely challenging but it has me quite intrigued. Can I do this? Will I be able to complete it? How will my body look in 60 days? Can I stay committed? Can I get any of my friends to do it with me, to keep one another accountable? Well, I have big, fat, "I don't know" for my answers but I'm willing to give it a try.

What really draws me to this particular workout is the vast difference in exercise on a given day. I get bored really easily and I believe that's why doing my other videos doesn't last. The other thing is the women look like women.. still feminine yet toned.

If you haven't seen the infomercial, check it out! Is "Insanity" for you?

Shorty shorts, here I come!
