I did it. I bit the bullet and went out bikini shopping today.

Oh. Em. Gee!

I vowed after giving birth to my first that I would never be caught dead in a bikini again. How could I bring myself to show off my midriff covered in all those stretchmarks?! Seeing the beauty in the stretchmarks is something I’ve struggled with. Y’know what though. The stretch marks are just that… Beautiful. It’s a love marking from pregnancy. I earned my tiger stripes upon entering motherhood. Why consider them a flaw? They’re anything but.

I’m heading away on a vacay soonish in celebration of my 5 year wedding anniversary. So I took the plunge… why not bikini while in paradise?

Deep breath.

    Bikini Shopping… something I haven’t done since 2007. In fact I haven’t worn a bathing suit since July 2007..right before I got pregnant with my first… not one bathing suit. I have to wear one this year… I HAVE to.

    I am sure you will look beautiful! Deep Breaths!! 😀

    I’ve never worn one in my life. Ok, maybe that is a lie. I think my mom used to put me in one when I was a kid. But that was pre being a chubby kid. Never wore one since. Too afraid. You are so brave! Good for you!

    I have bathing suit issues… severely. Props to you for going for the bikini. I am really hoping to be bikini worthy this year. Now, if I was going to paradise… I’d wear one. Not like I’ll see all the people staring ever again… I hope.
