“Where the fuck is my bra, Lawson?” She hisses, grabbing for the first shirt-looking item she sees, not remembering that she’d worn a dress last night and not her usual jeans, t-shirt and leather jacket combo.

Mike, for his part, merely waves his arms, panicking and acting as if is this close to losing his shit. And to think… it’s only Blip at the door.

The day Mike realizes he’s actively looking for Baker’s ass in the dugout is the day he decides he should probably stop slapping it.

A few summers ago I was feeling sad, I was in Atlanta and went shopping in a vintage store. I don’t love shopping for clothes, I just wish I could wear a daily uniform. [As previously noted I had to look up Ann Demeulemeester on wikipedia.] In the shop I found an old timey bathing suit. I brought the bathing suit home and I looked at it and I thought about who might have owned it before. The bathing suit didn’t fit into my life at that moment, I was too busy to go swimming. I felt disconnected from my body after having kids and I was sad. I sat in the moment looking at that bathing suit. I thought about how long my winter had been. My brain fooled me into thinking the winter would never end. I closed my eyes and I thought of what my life would look like when it did finally end, what six months from now might feel like. I put this bathing suit in a drawer and it waited for me to take it traveling. And then, six months later I went to Palm Springs with a bunch of wonderful women. They were my beautiful friends who had helped through a difficult year. We were going swimming and I reached into my bag to find a bathing suit, and I had put this old timey bathing suit in with the rest. I tried it on again, and I felt beautiful. I thanked the bathing suit for waiting for me. I got into the pool with Rashida, and Kathryn and Aubrey and I thanked the women for holding me up when I couldn’t hold myself. I thought about the woman who had worn that bathing suit before, and realized she was another woman who had helped me. I thanked her too. I realized I had traveled again, this time into a happier future. I stood in the sun, I thanked the sun. The more I time travel, the more I learn, I’m always just where I need to be.

Yes, this is another one of those “bikini” posts of mine…

I was at the beach last Sunday with friends and family.
I must admit I was feeling a bit down about heading to the beach, mostly because the bikini I have, got really old, and was not even in good condition to wear.
But as soon as I got my hands on this awesome Forever21+ two piece high waisted bikini, I became beyond happy and excited.

While at the beach, I experienced a not so pleasant moment.
I was sitting by the shore with a friend, chilling, and a 17 ish old girl passes by with her boyfriend ( I think it was her bf, they looked like a couple) and they both giggled and kept staring at me, I’m guessing it’s because I am fat, and ignorant people don’t expect us to confidently show off a bikini at the beach. Well, I shrugged it off, mostly because I was the only one who saw that they were laughing at me, and the others around me “probably didn’t notice it”.

I really don’t understand why people are so “disgusted” when seeing a fat body in a bathing suit.
I am not going to hide in big shirts, shorts, and cover my whole body just because you are so ignorant and my body bothers you. People like you used to make me feel so self conscious that I literally wore bra, panties, shirt and shorts to the beach. I didn’t think my body was even worthy of owning a bathing suit.

So yes, I’ll do as many bikini posts as I can, because I wish I had someone to look up to when I was struggling with my body.

Be happy with what you have while working for what you want -Helen Keller

Keep this quote in mind, because if you are currently struggling to reach “that summer bikini body”, don’t let it stop you from rocking a bikini or any bathing suit right now.

Have a great weekend everybody!
