Bathing Suit Catastrophe & Free Header

First off, did you all get to enter yesterday's giveaway? Helloooo ... $10 to Sonic. You can't beat that. Read yesterday's post and enter there.


Well, along with that, my friend, Jackie, is giving away a free header designed for your blog. To enter, leave a comment on this post. For Sonic, previous post. Got it? I'll pick for both on Sunday. You must be entered before midnight on Saturday.

OK.

My body donned a two-piece bathing suit 2 weekends ago. 

Shocking. I know.

It was a bikini. Sort of. With a skirt. Does a skirt make it a non-bikini? 

Whatever.

My stomach hasn't seen the light of day for about 16 years.

I warned my girlfriends ahead of time.

But, thought, that I'd seen a lot worse on the beach and felt comfortable enough with these friends to do so.

I had some good advice offered to me by my friend, Courtney: Stretch marks look better tanned. 

You know what? They do. They really do. That's not to say they're gone. Because there's not enough tanning in the world to make those babies disappear.

So, I decided to buy my own two-piece bathing suit. Another bikini. With the skirt of course.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this.

Oh ... wait, wait, wait.

Look at the first picture to get perspective. Cute. Skirt modestly covers.
Once again ...

Imagine my surprise when I saw this.
Beau says I'll be the hit at the pool.

Apparently I'm missing a piece.

I laughed so hard when I read this! I also dared to do a 2 piece (with skirt of course) this year. Yours is adorable!

A hit indeed!! :) What happened to that thing?! Isn't the inside usually ATTACHED... I mean, it's not like wearing TWO bottoms... Too bad though, because that IS a cute suit -- maybe you could buy a regular bottom to wear under it.... and hooray for you for the 2 piece. I'm sure your tummy's happy to match the color of your legs now. :)

OH! I tried the Mango Limeade at Sonic the other day... trés tasty! :)

I am cracking up!!! Sounds like something I would do. I haven't braved a 2 piece in YEARS!!! After going to Florida last week (let me just say there were some brave women or women who didn't own a mirror), it has crossed my mind to get a cute 2 piece (the bottom end would have to at least reach my belly button and have a cute skirt- after 4 children the stretch marks are horrendous!!). Hopefully you can find a regular bathing suit bottom to go under that cute skirt. Good luck!!

~Jenna said...

LOL, as you usually make me do ;) ok, going to dare the 2 piece this year too...more to follow , hehe!!

H-Mama said...

Crack. Me. Up.
I guess I've checked inside skirts so many times for my girls that it became a habit when looking for myself. This tummy will remain white... :)

sara said...

LOL!!! that is too funny and the suit...very cute!!

please enter me!

TCKK said...

Ok. I'm sitting in my office after eating lunch and looked at this and snorted I was laughing so much. Hope no ones nearby!!! Dare you to wear it that way!!!!!! Not really.

"Rachel" said...

OH MY GOSH!!!

Is that on purpose or did they really forget the crotch part????

Lily said...

LOL-- I almost bought just the skirt and top a few weeks ago at Target. Fortunately I noticed before I got to the checkout, or it would have been an unhappy trip to the beach for me.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Yea... you might need that their piece!!!

Okay I want in on the header give away!

Patrice said...

I went shopping today for a bathing suit and I also picked up a crotchless suit (crotchless sounds like a bad word) anyhoo, must be a new style...ughh, I had to pass...

Tammy said...

SO glad I didn't have a big swig of Coke in my mouth.....that photo got a whole hearted SNORT at my house!

thedomesticfringe said...

LOL! I was going to say that you're brave to sport a 2 piece, but you're just in better shape and thinner than I am. That's the truth I need to face! I'm too fat for a two piece. ;-)

Well, just hope there are no breezes!
