I ordered a new swimsuit for my vacation. A really cute one to show off my flatter tummy and tan. (Yes, I went to the tanning booth in prep for my beach time...go ahead and judge me.)
I got an email today...IT WILL NOT BE HERE IN TIME!
Thanks to unexpected issues with a high volume of orders, it will land on our porch 2 days after we leave.
I live in a tiny, cold town high in the mountains. They do not sell swimsuits in the middle of winter. I could get a ski parka in heartbeat or a spiffy set of snowshoes year round, though. It appears I will be heading to Florida with my old suit. My suit bought specifically to disguise my extra 10lbs.
Right now I really only need to hide 2.5lbs. Maybe less if I swapped some flab for muscle (*tiny hopeful grin*).
I am thinking about trying on my bikini from my "I don't have kids yet let's show off this booty" days. It is hot pink. It was made by Victoria's Secret. It was smoking and all sorts of amazing back in the day. It has laid untouched in the top drawer under a couple nursing bras for many years now.
I think that may frustrate me...discourage me....maybe even send me over the edge and make me hate hot pink forever.
But what if it....
it delights me??
