Hey y'all. I've been busy, sorry for the lack of posts. Tonight I'm eating pretzels with Boursin cheese and wine (I'm classy), so I thought I would blog for a bit.
I have sort of big news that's really only big for me, but I don't care, you can read about it too. One day last week I was perusing my usual blogs (Dottie, you need to blog soon), and I came across MODG's swimwear rant. And it spoke to me.
I've been pretty happy with my body lately (although the wine and pretzels and cheese probably aren't helping), I definately don't look as good in the um........stomach area........as I did ten years ago, but I've had two kids. Give me a break. So I bought a new one piece suit this year and it's really cute.
AND I SWEAR I DIDN'T PAY THAT MUCH FOR IT!!!! (in case D is reading this)
But I wanted a two piece. I was thinking about it, and the last time I wore a two piece was the summer after I got married. That was eight years ago. Really. That's pathetic.
So after I read MODG's post (see above), I decided that I was done feeling self conscious. No, I don't look like I did when I was 18, I've had two 8.5lb babies that gave me tiger stripe stretch marks all over my stomach, but I feel good about where I am. I don't want to teach my girls that they should be ashamed about their body because someone might look at their *percieved* imperfections. I'm me because I like to eat ice cream and drink wine and I've been a house to two baby girls. So sue me.
I'll be wearing a two piece at the beach this year. I'm going to have to spray tan my stomach so it doesn't blind anyone, but I'll be in the two piece. I ordered it from J.Crew and it should be here tomorrow. Eeeeekkkkk!!! Excited!
I SWEAR I DIDN'T PAY THAT MUCH, D, LEAVE ME ALONE!!!
