An Ah-ha moment presents a dilemma

Sunday, May 29, 2011

After gaining some weight this winter, I decided to buy two pairs of shorts that were comfortable. Slimming! Sleek! Flattering! those were the words that shouted out to me when I saw them on the rack. I found a brown pair in a size 20 and lo and behold....they fit! YES! And....they actually met the promise they shouted. The secret is they button on the side.....not at the belly button where they would stick out like so many of my other britches. So I bought them, along with a kacki pair.

We left for the beach yesterday w/DH, DD and DS#2. I was tired because we waited up half the night waiting for DD's flight to get in. So I put the brown shorts on, threw the kacki pair into my luggage....and at the last moment, threw in a smaller pair(18) of plaid lime green shorts (my golf uniform, haha) "just in case".

The beach is a 3 hour drive and we enjoyed chit chatting...and I even got a little snooze. We got to our hotel kinda late....too late to make a trip to the beach. So we dumped our stuff in our room and went out to the pool with drinks and snacks. That is when I discovered that my slimming, sleek, flattering shorts were SWIMMING on me!! And were in danger of falling off!! I tried to ignore it, thinking.....well, this is a good problem to have.

But then I saw myself in the mirror as I headed to our room for a potty break. They actually made me look BIGGER!! Egad!

Needless to say.....I took them off and put on my golf uniform which fit perfectly....and felt fabulous!! Good thing I have two shirts that go with those shorts! Because that's what I'm wearing all weekend! lol

I wonder what the swimsuit is gonna look like? hmmmmm....

    Woohoo -- you get to go shopping!!!!!! Have a great time at the beach. Let us know how the swimming suit fits - remember, you have a lot more to show if the swimming suit swims to the floor ----- no, it's a lot less to show!!!!
