It's not itsy bitsy, teenie tiny, or yellow, 4 out of 5 aint bad.

This morning, I did something i do every year. It's not fun, it's not pretty, and it's definitely not cool. What did I do? I went bathing suit shopping. I have a girls weekend coming up with some fab girlfriends and I needed a new suit. My drawers are filled with past years attempts at looking presentable by the pool.

I have learned from past mistakes. Trust.

I had my year of just giving up and going for grannywear..

I decided that I could wear that when i actually became a grandma, and the next year I went with a style from your favorite stereotype and mine.. the mom blob
(No offense to Keely Shae Smith.  She had a baby, and hey, we've almost all been the mom blob, I just shouldn't have stuffed mine into a bikini)

The next year, boy shorts were in.  I have to say , that is the most uncomfortable bathing suit I've ever worn.  It's especially difficult to avoid a wedgie while carting around a baby at a swim park.

See, there's no way to keep things where they are supposed in these.

The one I had for the past few years, it was what you call a Tankini. I had a good few years with my last one, and it's worn out, and I've gotten smaller, so I decided to try something a little different.

I dreaded going today, but it was all right.  All the weeks of busting it at the gym might have helped, or maybe it was just the fake "you look great" lighting that gave me the illusion that I didn't look like I just came off the farm. Either way, I was pleased and I bought one.  I'm not posting what it looks like, but it's polka dot, very cute, and I felt good the minute I put it on.  It turned a usually torturous event into something i could live with.  It's never something I would love to do every day, but at least i can say today, i'd pick going over getting my teeth pulled. So for all you who haven't bought your sunwear, good luck.  I hope you find something that makes you feel less like someone is about to try to harpoon you, and more like people are envying how you look.

Happy Shopping.
