Mod Cloth

I bought my first dress from Mod Cloth tonight. We are heading over to the East Coast for a dear friend's wedding in two weeks. I am looking forward to time away from the craziness that has become my job, some quality time with family, and a night out celebrating my friend's love and dancing for hours with my sweetie. I have been eyeing this dress, the aptly named 'come hither dress' for awhile and bought it tonight as the time is getting really close. I'm thinking a low side bun, dark nails and either red or silver heels (or possibly red nails and dark shoes). Fingers crossed on how it will fit . . .

Rock the Vote

Today there are primaries all across the country. According to the Associated Press, only 30 % of people that are eligible to vote will actually go out today and vote. Our right to 'speak out' through voting is a great one, especially during this time when our country is in such a state of disagreement and division. My lovely state of California is a hot mess right now. I tried to go before work but ended up at the wrong station so I will have to go after and then flip anxiously between the polls and the Celtics Lakers game tonight.

Insane in the Membrane

Despite all of the 'studies' telling us that this not good, my husband and I often fall asleep with the tv on. (When he was on night rotation I was not fan of a) sleeping by myself b) being in total silence in our bedroom when I could hear every sound both inside and outside of the house so I got into the habit of sleeping with the tv on) This leads infomercials working their magic: after several weeks of waking up to Insanity commercials and hearing, while half awake, people's success stories, I bought the workout set. It is a series of 13 workout dvds that come in neat little book, a calendar that shows what workout to do on which day, and a nutrition guide. Today was day one and I had to do the fit test. I retest myself on day 15, day 36, day 50 and on day 63, the end day. I am determined to stick with this as we are going on a cruise in August and I'm far from where I'd like to be. I'll keep you posted on how it's going - anyone else out there tried this yet?
