The Bikini Photo

This isn't so much a confession.... but it kind of is because I'm posting a no-filter bathing suit bathroom selfie for all of the internet to see. 

There have been times in my life where I wouldn't have taken $10,000 to do something this scary.

This weekend I went shopping with the mission to find a bathing suit. Temperatures have been getting warmer and I am feeling that invite coming along any time now for a friend to ask me over for a swim. 

Rather than anxiety later, I decided that Memorial Day weekend sales would be in my favor as I went to look for my first bathing suit purchase in over 10 years. 

That's not an exaggeration. 

Victory #1 - I didn't cry. 
Victory #2 - I didn't settle on something "more modest"
Victory #3 - I was honest about the sizes I needed (top L, bottoms XL)
Victory #4 - I bought a freakin' swim suit (and actually bought three)
Victory #5 - That smile on my face. Right there. 


Drop the mic. I'm out. 

(ps - this was from Old Navy but I can't find it online)

Link up with Kathy, won't you?

    And the smile says it all!

    Old Navy does have some rocking suits.. I need to go get a pair of bottoms, because (and don't ask me why) I still have the top to a rocking bikini I wore before I had my son... And this is the year I am going to wear it!
