Perfectly suited for me

I FINALLY found a freaking swimsuit! I went shopping with Looseyfur and Quigs in the next towns over. They have a Lane Bryant and I figured that while I was there, I could look for a suit. Loosey was nice enough to google sporting goods stores up there, so I would have somewhere to look. We started with lunch at Carlos O'Kelly's which has the most freaking awesome Fajita cheese crisps and I seek them out anytime I'm in a town with one.

Then we went to LB, where Loosey found a super cute shirt to go with her nice pants. Quigs found some really nice bras and I hope they serve her well. I have an LB bra and I don't like. It is way too much and feels like strapping on full body armour when I wear it. I looked at a few things but I have no need for more cloths so I didn't do any trying on.

Then we went hunting for the "Lifeguard Supply Store" that google said they had. After we found the cabinet store and the semi sales, we finally found the lifeguard store, only to find they were closed. :(

We ended up back at the other mall in town, where they had an MC Sports that I wanted to check out. I was kind of disappointed when it looked like they didn't have any of the suits I wanted to try out. Quigs, fortunately, found me some of the Speedo suits, which had 2 in my size. I tried them both on and found that the plain one (which was tagged a little more expensive, which is confusing to me) in solid blue fit a little bit better. I was willing to pay the $5 extra to get one that fit a little better. When I checked out, I found it was on sale and ended up being cheaper than the other one anyway! So I have a one piece swimsuit, designed for swimming, in a color that I like, that provides enough leg coverage! This is seriously a rare event in swimsut finding for me. And, now I know what size and style I need so I can just order them online from now on! :)

Then we went to Maurice's where Quigs found a couple of things, then home. Now RF has gone to play with Mactroll, PapaQuigs and TDad and I'm sitting here trying to decide how early I can convince these kids to go to bed because I'm worn out!

I like that we each came home with a little something. I also like how none of us shopped for the kids.

I haven't done that in a long, long time. Usually I completely bypass things for myself because I think X-man needs something more than I do.

Usually I bypass things for myself because I shop with the kids and they won't sit outside the dressing room and hang stuff back up for me like you guys will. :)

Thank you for being patient with my shopping bipolar disorder and for being honest with your opinions!

If your friends won't tell you the truth about your clothes, who is going to? Strangers are just going to point and laugh behind your back :)

Don't you just love when that happens - when you get that surprise discount?

Glad your shopping trip was successful!

Very cool about getting a suit! I still haven't found one I like and I've given up. We head for the beach soon and I'll be out there in shorts and a top and no suit. :-( How fun to go shopping with the girls. :-)
