On Sunday I went to Target and I bought something that I have never before in my life bought, a swimsuit.
I've had swimsuits before. When I was a kid my mother bought me swimsuits and forced me to wear them. After hitting the 14 age mark though, it was always shorts and a t-shirt. If I was feeling crazy, I would wear the black polka dotty one that my mother gave me which was one of her cast-offs from her skinny phase. The top part was a little loose, meaning my boobs had to grow into it. Even with this swimsuit, which I still have and have still been using since then, I have always topped it with a t-shirt.
Why? I could lie and say it was to protect myself from sunburn. But let's be honest, I'm a girl and I'm self-conscious. All girls are, especially in bathing suits.
But this year, I am approaching summer with a positive attitude (at least I'm trying to). Rather than shy away from beach trips and anything involving Jared seeing me in the embarrassing mess of the black polka dotty suit with a t-shirt, I decided to try and find a flattering swimsuit. After all, last year I lost a little weight and I'm feeling better about myself than I have in years.
Summer, here I come.. Beach, here I come. Sunburn, here I come.
What do ya think?
