Hey there! Glad you stopped by Motley Moms today! I'm feeling so relieved now that the big holidays are finished that I thought it would be nice to just sit and chat for a while.
You may be wondering why I'm posting today. Yes, I have been Sunday Mom since I started writing here at MM, but when Bryssy decided to take a break I asked if I could move to Tuesday. Tuesday is an exciting day for me in the blog-o-sphere--have you ever heard of a blog carnival? It's a way of collecting articles about similar topics in one place so that readers can find them more easily. There's Meal Planning Monday and Frugal Friday, amongst others, but the carnival that I'm excited about is Kitchen Tip Tuesday. I love kitchen talk, and when I find something that works I love to tell everyone I know! I'm looking forward to participating in that carnival every now and then.
So on to hotter topics--have you sorted out your summer wardrobe yet? You know what I'm talking about. The poolside wardrobe. Swimsuits. I've spent a great deal of time avoiding them, but my water-loving toddler is probably not going to let that fly this year, so I'm going in a direction I never thought I would travel (at least I never thought I would during my cheerleading days!). I bought a tankini with short bottoms. Would you believe this was really a hard decision to make? I was pretty concerned about tan lines. Tan lines. Isn't that hilarious? Anyway, I picked a pretty sporty looking one, and as a friend pointed out the other day, I wear shorts with my swimsuit most of the time anyway, so why not wear a pair that can actually get wet?
And then there are the things I will do to fit into that new tankini. Cardio last night was a killer! There were so many people in class (which is a good thing) that the only weights left during the lifting segment were the heavier ones (which is not necessarily a good thing). My arms are trembling right now and incredibly sore. Shouldn't there be some point where the workouts get easier? It seems like the more I work out the sorer I get. Or there's some new "level" to jump to, which usually means more work and more soreness. Ugh. The price we pay for health and wellness. And looking hot in a swimsuit.
Well, I won't keep you. I've got some errands to run, and I'm sure you're busy, too. We are moms, right? Thanks for chatting with me today, anyway, and feel free to join in on the conversation. Take care, and have a good day!
