Some of our dearest friends, Matt and Ashley, are expecting their first child in early October. We are all excited for baby Xavier to get here. I am especially excited to see if baby X looks like his mama or papa.
We got an invitation in the mail last week to their baby shower bbq. I was super excited because it is a couples event. No offense to all the baby showers I have attended in the past, but I am NOT a fan of old fashioned baby shower games and pastel baby shower decorations. I am excited to attend this potluck bbq with my honey. However...something has thrown a big wrench in this whole shower business. There is an option for swimming.
Enter panic attack.
I realized I have not purchased a bathing suit in four years. Okay, let me beat you to the punch. "That is ridiculous!" Yes, yes it is folks. I think it has been at least 3-4 years since I've been in a bathing suit (not including my sporty one piece I wear at the gym pool) and even then, it was a suit that was probably 4 sizes too big. I hate shopping for swim suits like any other woman, but it is especially hard to find suits for me because I am cursed with a long torso. This means not only is there a limited selection, but I usually have to pay more money for my suits. This panic attack has lead me straight to the internet in search of a new suit. Here is the competition.
