How in the hell-o do you honeymoon?

Ok here is what you need to know:

1. We want to go to Jamaica and as close to the airport (aka no two hour long drives through country) as possible
2. We don't want to sleep in a smelly, musty, room, or have to worry about creepy crawlies but otherwise we aren't too particular
3. We have a teeny budget and no credit cards - just bank accounts that ebb and flow depending on the time of the month
4. Actually scratch #1 we feel as though we would like Jamaica but would be pretty much content anywhere with a chill out vibe, sand, sun, and no pressure to be adventurous. We want to shop, swim, sex, and maybe have a dolphin encounter - I'm open to suggestions!

That's it - simple right? Wrong. I can't seem to locate anything under $5,000 and I know it must exist. Married ladies and seasoned travelers...what am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?

Celebrity Malarky

Sherri Shepard has sliimed down and girl friend looks good. She showed up on the view in a bathing suit and wowed the crowds and is now gracing the covers of all the rags flaunting her new much slimmed down figure. Life for Sherri looks damn good, the only issue - she's lying like a rug!

On the both the cover of People and Ok magazine there are before and after pictures - the before picture boasts that Sherri was a "morbidly obese" size 16 and that now after mere months of dieting- Sheri is down to a size 6. Go ahead, scroll back up to the picture to scope this mess out - I'll wait.

You will clearly see that there is no way in hell on either size. I'll even give you a few more examples:



Clearly Sherri has worked very hard and looks great- she's doing wonders for her health and her self esteem but shame on Sherri Shepard for allowing Hollywood to size gauge her. If she's going to have her weight/sizes plastered all over the media as an "inspiration to others" at least be honest. Sherri was easily in the 20s for her size at her heaviest. At this point I would say with almost certainty that she is comfortably in a 12-14 pants and probably pushing an 18-20 for blouses. And any woman who knows anything about sizes knows that this size 6 thing is BS!

This is why we have women in America with such views on weight and we struggle with anorexia and bullemia as much IF NOT MORE that obesity. It just irritates me. Let's be real.

This has me a bit fired up for no real reason other than it just annoys me- ladies we don't need to be a size 6 to be healthy, beautiful, and hot and the sooner we call bullshit on this- the better off we'll all be.

So I'll be the first to say it - you look good Sherri Shepard..but size 6?!?!


Much Love!
