I never understand when people say they hate shopping. I love it. I would say shopping is one of my best things. Tonight though...I think I got a clear understanding of the evils of shopping. I went swimsuit shopping. Cali and I both went. In a couple of months I am going on two different trips. 5 weeks of vacation. On the book of Mormon tour there will be a lot of swimming...and of course the trip to Mazatlan. In Maz we spend about 80 % of our time in swimsuits. Since I have spent the last couple of summers (not including this) pregnant or nursing, I don't have a lot of swimwear...let me rephrase that...I have no swimwear. Now as most of you know I am a tall lady. Now I love being tall but it is times like this I just wish my torso was half as long and wouldn't make every swimsuit super french cut...and every tankini more like a half shirt. Nothing fits. Arrrrghhh. Cali and I didn't even find one suit that didn't make us burst out in hysterical laughter. That is sad. I mean don't swimsuit designers know that they are supposed to be flattering. I am pretty skinny...how can I not find something that looks good?? Another problem is all the swimsuits out there are soooooo low cut. I just think it is too immodest for a woman like me with "huge tracks of land" to wear any of the swimsuits I tried on. I mean...I have to go on this trip with my parents...and my brothers for crying out loud. So we returned empty handed. I don't know what to do. Have swimsuit designers ever met women before??? I seriously could make really cool swimsuits...if I only knew how to sew.
Even though we didn't find a thing, it was still great to be out together. We were so giddy! I don't think there is anything like trying on a bunch of ridiculous (another one of the words that is hard for me to spell) swimsuits with a sister. Cali and I are NEVER EVER together without our six kids...so we felt pretty footloose and fancy free. So thats all. I know I am one of those people that gives too much information. Hahahaa. Sorry.
