I did it...

I bought a bathing suit for this summer! I put it off for 2 reasons. 1) We are just now going on vacation today (yeah!) and 2) I was waiting for a big sale...and Belk is having one this weekend!

I followed my own rules and bought what would work for my body type. As you can see from the pictures (which are kind of distorted...sorry), the top is a halter which shows some skin on the smallest part of me...my chest :) Then on the sides, it has these drawstring things that allow you to make it rouched. This works perfectly to cover up the gut I've accumulated over the summer. Then the bottoms (my phone will be ringing any second. My sister will be calling me to make fun of me. I made fun of her for getting a "skirted" swimsuit last year) have the cutest little skirt...not too grandma, but covers up just enough! I'm so excited to wear my new suit to the beach. Hopefully I'll be confident that all the bad parts are masked, and all the good parts are showing (well...not too much of the good parts!)
P.S. My swimsuit is neither of these colors. I just couldn't find a pic of it in my color (purple). And I'm not going to gross ya'll out and put a pic of me in it...ha!

Interesting....I recall you making fun of me for SEVERAL things that you are now into. For example, blogging!! Also, like you mentioned, skirted swimsuits AND MOST OF ALL...the color purple!! Wow!! I need to have a witness around at all times in case you try to deny making fun of me! I guess I can just assume that whatever I have or do that you make fun of, you'll have or be doing in just a matter of time! ;) Just admit it...you want to be like me!

Love it! I have a skirted suit with a halter and LOVE it- I think it's so flattering (even though my top is not that small- ha!) I need the skinny on your celeb sightings. Have you seen Keith's baby yet?
