Mother of the Bride Update: Wedding Arms

Pink Weight

Nine and a half more weeks until my daughter Laura’s wedding.

Yikes!

And my MOB dress is SLEEVELESS.

Like Meg Tipper, I’m wondering how my arms will look.

Shiny pink hand weights weren’t enough to inspire me to pump those arms…

Until I decided to indulge in one of my greatest vices: situation comedies from the 60s.

I cut myself a deal.

And it’s working!  (And most of the deals I cut with myself fail within two days.)

I’m allowed to watch the Dick van Dyke Show IF I lift weights while I watch.

Shout out to the Lauras!

Laura Younger for helping me select the dress.

Laura Petrie for entertaining and inspiring me as I work on my Mother of the Bride bod.

Before you know it, I’m going to be escorted down the aisle with Laura Petrie arms.

Well maybe they won’t be Laura Petrie arms, but some of the jiggle really is gone.
