A Man in Your Bed Can Be Distracting

Life, after a week-long cruise to Bermuda, can be rather exhausting.  So The Wedding Date and I are off to my parents’ place in the middle of nowhere for the weekend.  In order to provide you all with your daily (okay, semi-daily…) dose of dating related amusement, however, I’d like to direct your attention to…

Technically, We “Went” to the Gym

For our cruise to Bermuda, I packed six pairs of shoes, five bathing suits, four dresses, three hats, two gowns, and an entire week’s worth of workout wear. Why? Well, Royal Caribbean cruises tend to bring out the worst in me.  By which I mean if I have the option to eat breakfast three different…
