5/2/11 Oh Happy Day

It's certainly been a memorable few days...

What a day (May Day) for the U.S. (It always scares me when I see 'Breaking News' interrupting TV programming...so good last night to see good news for a change)!  Bin Laden dead just a few months before the 10 year 9/11 anniversary...I hope this gives our victim's families some small peace.  I'm still in shock that he was in a mansion and so near a Pakistan military facility .  I hope this takes some of the wind out of Al Qaeda's sail.  I'm also happy that DH is back in the country from Italy, but I'll be glad when he's home from his second trip out west here.  As much as I fight this, to keep them from winning, unfortunately, the terrorists have succeeded in keeping some fear in my heart in regards to air travel.

In other news I was intrigued that Kate Middleton, excuse me, the Duchess of Cambridge, is purported to be 5'10" and 120 lbs. (and rumored to have been on a diet, which dropped her weight quite a bit).  It caught my attention, because I was just under 5'10" and 132 lbs. at my wedding, and let me tell you, I was too skinny...one of the few times as an adult I wasn't trying to lose weight, but lost a few pounds just due to the 'wedding stress'.  That gives Kate a BMI of 17.2...yes, that's well into the 'underweight' category.  My first thought...all those poor brides that will be buying look-alike wedding dresses hoping to look like her.  Although I thought she looked beautiful (and it was a beautiful wedding), I wish she hadn't dieted to get quite so thin...more unrealistic images for our girls to struggle with (and another new diet to gain followers)...who didn't want to look like tiny Cinderella on their wedding day back in my day?...that tiny waist...heck even her feet were tiny!

...off to a busy day, have a good one all!

I just posted about Kate Middleton (and her weight) too! Great minds! :) She was beautiful, but I definitely agree about the unfortunate result of girls having yet another unattainable role model for weight. Ugh!
