You know it's time for some new suits when...

I typically wear the same suit every morning at practice. A navy blue speedo endurance with light blue piping. I am such a fasion-ista, I said piping. Anyways, this suit is awesome because chlorine is nothing to it – it has lasted forever…it might be going on a year by now and there aren’t any signs of wear. The only thing I don’t like about it is it will occasionally chafe me under my arm. I actually have a faint scar from all the times I have just swum through it. This only seems to happen when it’s very cold and dry outside – the WORST times of the year in my opinion. Again, anyways these suits are expensive but we get a sweet discount at Inside Out and it is SO worth the money since it lasts so long. But this morning I realized I may need to switch up the wardrobe a bit.

I do have another suit – it’s purple and swirly and is nice, I don’t actually know why I don’t wear it more often but this morning I put it on and no less than TWO guys at master’s commented about my new suit. Hello! GUYS!!! And that’s not even counting Marty who said something immediately to me PRE-COFFEE!!! If those aren’t glaring red flags that I need to wear a bit more suits I don’t know what else is. I do have one splish that ‘the nicest lady in the world’ sent to me, but I have yet to wear it to Master’s practice, although I’m sure everyone would get a good laugh out of it (it’s the ‘Who Rocks? I Rock’ swimsuit). That one has only been reserved for times when I know the pool was empty ;)

We’re driving up to Va this afternoon; Dad’s flying up to my sister’s house to do a bit of pre-Christmas celebrating. Then we’re back in NC for a few days before going BACK up there on Christmas eve for a couple of more days. I’m really looking forward to spending time with my family – never a dull moment, that’s for sure ;)

Dan told me today that I looked like a real swimmer in the water. He hadn’t swum with us in awhile and this is a huge compliment! I swam my next interval extra fast still beaming about it. Then I pooped out and was happy we only had one more to go!

Wear the "Who Rocks" suit!!!! It is the best suit and everyone always loves it! You will get over the self conscious feeling when everyone starts telling you how awesome your suit is and how much you rock.

Only one suit...for all the swims...and it lasted the whole year?! I need me one of those!!!

Anyway, hope you guys and your family have a wonderful holiday. Safe travels "up north". :)

I get teased all the time Bri, b/c I am one of those swimmers who has those clips attached to my XL PINK bag with literally - NOT exaggerating - 12 suits of super loud colors hanging off my bag...and I pick a suit based on my mood. And, if I show up in my plain black suit, everyone goes, "Uh oh." :) Hee hee....happy suit shopping.

Merry Christmas!!
