Suit-Shopping Saturday

This morning, I went on a dreaded mission: To find a new swimsuit.

I was only partially successful.

See, my old swimsuits are getting kinda, well, old. My favorite one is 3 years old now and the bottoms are kinda stretched out and saggy. No girl likes a saggy bottom. So, I figured I'd go in search of a new suit since we plan on going to the beach next weekend to celebrate both mine and Jerry's b-days. I tried on about 20 suits and they all sucked -- I blame the suits, not my body. In the end, I decided to just buy a new pair of black bottoms (I have a black bikini top that I like but the bottoms that came with those are also saggy in the deire); thus, I got half a new suit.

It's okay. Nothing to write home about.

Anyhoo...that's about the extent my Saturday so far.

I did get to sleep in this morning, which was glorious, and now I'm going to iron some clothes for myself and Jerry because we're headed to my co-worker's memorial service this afternoon. Afterwards, some of the faculty in my department are meeting up at a downtown bar for a few memorial drinks to cry in our beer over the loss of our friend.

And, then tonight, I think we're going bowling, but I just learned of this. Funny how husbands can sometimes forget about social engagements that they've committed us to. Good thing I read about bowling on Ryan's blog, and then asked Jerry: "Hey, who's b-day is today that everyone else is going bowling for?" "Oh," Jerry said, "That's right. I forgot."

I haven't been bowling in a long time, but it's always a ton of fun, especially with a bunch of people.

I am going to swimsuit shopping today too! Go figure! I'm so excited and I'll let you know what I find.

Half a suit is better than no suit at all. I just bought 2 new ones. One is flattering on, but leaves bad tan lines. The other leaves good tan lines, but doesn't look the best (bandeau top - not made for big hooters). It is really hard to find the perfect suit.

Wow, sounds like you have quite the interesting evening planned for yourselves.

Can I borrow your saggy bottoms for next weekend? Preggo has a top that will work but the bottoms are, well, HUGE! I actually went in search of just half a suit today but the one that would have worked was not in my size. I may have to try another store later this week.

Jess, we don't forget about hte social engagements that we have committed you to....we just want to let you experience the joy of being surprised when learning about it. Well, ok, maybe we are just afraid to tell you out of fear that you will nix it. Enjoy bowling.

I hate shopping for suits! I swear, all two-pieces are made for girls with no hips or boobs.

Boys can be so funny sometimes. I might go bowling tonight. Woo hoo! I love it.

I hope you have a good time!

I hate swimsuit shopping. And I have totally done the mix and match thing...so just buying bottoms makes sense to me!

Swim suits and mirrors... not a good combination.
