This was the set. Isn't it amazing? Joe and Dawn at Sleepy Creek Vineyards whipped this out in 2 days. You may also notice that there is writing on the boat. It says "Talley Ho" to which I made the joke that they named the schooner after me. Cause I'm ornery like that.
This was me chugging a bottle of bootleg gin. It was really water, but I got to show off my chug-a-lug skills. I grew up with 2 brothers. (One of whom decided to get appendicitis on opening night. We are a very dramatic family!)
This is my favorite picture from the photos we took. You may notice that one of my girls is glaringly higher than the other. I will tell you that it's because of the dress. Whoever made it (and it was NOT ME) cut it on the bias incorrectly, so the dress was crooked. I subsequently had one bra strap adjusted all the way up, and one all the way at the bottom. But it still looked like that. I couldn't fit both my boobs in the same place at once. So it looked like I was severely lopsided. But I managed. And Matt made sure to try and help adjust me backstage whenever he could.
See all the grey in Matt's beard? He added that. SOME of it. The rest is because he is married to me. He had 2 grey hairs when we met. Since then, he has become VERY distinguished! This is the scene that he was on ice skates. Yep. Ice skates. Which was pretty darn funny. He is not what you would call a beautifully coordinated person.
Over all, we had a great show. In fact, so great that my dahling man has gotten the acting bug once again. He's filled with passion and purpose. And when that happens, Charlie gets herself a man that twitterpates her like no other!
And after seeing some of the pictures of me in a lopsided dress, I have become more convinced than ever that I have got to finish this diet to the bitter end. The photos I did not post here were less than flattering. So it's back on the wagon for me. Weight Watchers, exercising, and serious Biggest Loser workouts. Lee Ann has been working out twice a day, and she is looking SOOOOOO GOOD! So I think that I better get back on the ball before I get out of the habit and gain all this weight back.
Which is good for you. You can all expect my funny fitness fiasco blogs when I am exercising with a vengeance! So, starting tomorrow- when the kids are back at school, I will be going to the YMCA at 9am and working my tooshie off. And walking at the mall that night. It's crunch time, and I think I'm finally ready to hit the goal that I have been shooting for.
So, until tomorrow....
How are you guys doing on your weigh losses?
