Do Not!!!

*Do NOT go try on a bathing suit in January. Ever!!! Even if it is the cutest little brown tankini with a flirty skirt. Even if you are leaving for a trip somewhere tropical in less than two weeks. Don't do it!!! You will see every Christmas cookie, and extra helping of dressing you carelessly consumed on parts of your body that have not seen sunlight in about 5 months.

DO go find a precious blouse like this or a cute little top like this and wait another 4 months till the New Year's Diet begins to take effect. In case you get side tracked at Target while looking at this harmless little number that just came in, heed my warning. It won't be pretty.

LOL! er...I meant SORRY it was a traumatic experience. We are our own worst critics, and I bet you looked just fine. (Hey...I heard that snort!) =o) The clothing you selected IS cute as the dickens. Where are you going in 2 weeks??

Robin said...

OH That IS cute!!! I think I must have it. Maybe I'll just buy it and pray the weight off by March??? =)

Ruth- My sis and her husband are taking us on an all expense paid trip to Panama for 5 days. He earned the trip through his work, and since Skip has done some graphic design for him(and because they love us and feel sorry for our unadventurous life)they decided to take us. Yipee!

I feel your pain. Thought I'm shopping for a formal gown. That is just as worse. Oh wait, I just found out we are going to disney in april. Help me. Take stock in tanning spray!!

Susie-You always make me smile! You have such a wonderful spirit and sense of fun.

I didn't take your advice, and went swimsuit shopping anyway! All I can say is... ugh! I ended up buying a sweater. I forgot how white I am. The temperature here in LA is supposed to be sunny and in the upper 60's. Maybe I can lay out in it and not freeze.

Or, if you're me, do not try on a swimsuit ANY month of the year. Just pack your cutoffs and an Old Navy tee shirt. LOL

Did I miss something? Are you heading for somewhere tropical in the near future? Wait. Don't tell me. I won't be able to stand it.
