Reasons why I need girlfriends
Since its 80 plus degrees here, I figure its officially swimsuit season. My original plan was jus to a really cute coverup and sit on the beach in my cutest-thing-you've-ever-seen-coverup-so-it-doesn't-matter-
how-many-cookies-I-ate, but...somehow I haven't been able to find that one. I love being married and living with a man's man (aka, non shopper guy), BUT sometimes you just need a girl's opinion.
Like which color do I buy of the Land's End Tugless Tank? Cause I need something to strap in all of my womanly figure. And I should add that I think cleavage is repulsive...wait...no, mostly just "I've had three babies, can't you tell" cleavage especially. So we want none seen...so there I find myself at the Land's End modesty department of the swim suit.
or Dark Azure?
Which one would make me look hip and fun and not so frumpy and can a color really change you that much?
My mother always said it doesn't matter what you look like in a swimsuit, cause if you aren't self conscience, no one else will be. I never her believed her. Not for years. But now I do. Cause I think its all in our heads. Or I hope if for reals is true cause I was prancing all over the beach last weekend with my stark white legs. Jiggling. But kids don't care and they just want a fun mom. And I want to have fun too.
And I gave my friend a big lecture when she was saying self-hating remarks about her body (you know who you are!). And seriously she is beautiful. And why do we woman torture ourselves? Cause really as long as I can run 4 miles, I would rather eat ice cream than be crabby. Maybe two bowls sometimes. Heaping.
Cause really the one I want to buy is this one? But is it too hoochy? This is what I need a girlfriend for. Would you wear it in front of your in laws? Or your children? Am i a dork or what? Don't worry, I won't have anymore crazy swimsuit posts....we'll stick to the kids. :) Is that sheer in the middle part? Maybe if I just didn't stand like she is it might work. You'll have to see me on the beach.
