Wrinkly bellies and other random thoughts...

What a blah day it is...it's raining and supposed to get colder again (50's). I know...I know, I'm spoiled down here in the south. Harrison said he wanted hot cocoa and "scout cookies"when he woke up from his nap, guess who introduced him to those? You can't hide food from them after a certain age anymore. As I'm sneaking eating a samoa..."mommy, can I have one"? BUSTED!


Right now the boys are all napping..so I'm about to go cuddle with my NAP blanket. I don't know how much running I'll get to do the rest of the week. I ran 6 miles on Saturday and it wasn't too bad, but I thought to myself, could I run 20 miles more? Week 5 of training down, 27 more to go. YIKES! My friend, marathon mom, is pregnant and ran 26 miles last weekend, so what am I complaining about-go marathon mom-you rock!!


With spring and Easter right around the corner and the pools opening soon...they open at the end of April around here-YIKES...I'm trying to decide on a bathing suit. Since I weigh about 30 pounds less than I did last summer, I need a new one. And, even though I've lost so much weight, I still have the stomach of a 90 year old..(with all of the wrinkles), so it will be a one-piece. I still don't understand how a stomach can be flat, yet wrinkly at the same time...it's so annoying. I tell you-it's the dark side of having mulitples...Tankini's just don't do it for me because of my short torso, they actually make me look shorter. I'm eyeing up this one over at J Crew...what do you think?




What do you think of my new music? The group Bitter Sweet has a lot of songs on Lipstick Jungle, which is growing on me rapidly....I love their music!! Makes me want to dance as I clean the house....

First of all you rock with your weight loss. Definitely deserve a new suit! That one is gorgeous. Who the hell is preggers and running 26 miles! Holy crap!

I love the suit. My only concern with it, is the way the pattern is hitting the model seems to highlight the stomach -- makes a big ole circle around it!

Can't comment on the music yet...I have to MUTE my laptop at work so the whole office doesn't know I'm reading your blog!

I ditto the mrs.-26 miles and pregnant? I am envious as I have been so sick all day that I can barely do a few miles on the treadmill a few times a week! You runner girls are dedicated!

I love the suit and am sure you would look fabulous in any suit with all of your weight loss!

Love that suit- it is the perfect colors for you. I was always jealous that you could wear orange and look so good!! I love orange but it just doesn't do it for me!!!
27 weeks to go- that is going to pass so fast!!!

I love the idea of the suit but the pattern could highlight certain areas. Look closely at the pattern, it makes tummy swell and boobs recede. It might be better in person, as the fabric could be cut differently. Good Luck!

Running while pregnant? I couldn't run 26 yards when I was pregnant, much less 26 miles.

SO jealous of your weather right now...

The suit...hmmm...I love the pattern, but I would be concerned about the chest. I don't know if the halter style would be the most flattering for a post-kid chest.

Love that suit! My stomach is incredibly wrinkly and I don't have twins as an excuse.
