Sometimes I wish they weren't so honest

I got a new swimsuit yesterday that I had ordered off of Lands End website. I had seen on Fiddledeedee about the great prices on Lands End "overstocks."

Needing a swimsuit at the beach, I quickly looked around town to see if I could find anything that I liked.

Not so much. In fact, the best I could find was "this isn't horrible."

So, I took a chance on mail ordering a swimsuit and it arrived yesterday. It does flatter my top half (which is better than any of the local suits) but the bottom half . . . let's just say I will be in shorts.

Junior, ever the flatterer, told me "Mommy, I like your new swimming suit. It makes your tummy not look as fat as it really is."

thanks for that.

  2. Brave girl. I had never ordered online before either. I'm with you on the shorts issue. Shorts are just practical. You just never know when one of your kids will ask you to do a cartwheel. :)
