Shapecations: Bridal Boot Camps on Location

In T-minus four months, I’m getting married. When I got engaged I promised myself that I wouldn’t be that bride-to-be: no talking about my wedding all the time (obviously failing at that), no obsessing over silly details, and no crash diets to fit into my dress.

But I’m here to tell you that wedding dress shopping is a humbling event. Those ornate gowns are altered to fit like a glove–and if you aren’t in top physical form, it will show every single buckle and bulge.

That’s why I was intrigued when my friend Carly indulged in a “shapecation” with her bridesmaids. In fact, millions of people were probably intrigued because Good Morning America followed her on her journey. Check out the video here.

Vacation Sex…You Know It’s Better

Without going into detail, let’s just say I see where Danny DeVito was going with his Lincoln bedroom commentary on “The View” a few weeks ago–though I would have preferred to hear it from his buddy George Clooney. There is such a thing a “vacation sex.”*

DeVito’s rant aside, I get what he meant. Being away from home, from work, and from the distractions of our everyday responsibilities makes, ahem…you know, totally different than at home. Indeed, better…and more frequent.
