Feeling Old

I'm actually not old. I'm 29. 30 is around the corner, but so what? My husband is 13 years older than I am so really, I should always feel young. It's just that the past year has aged me. Inside and out. And even though it doesn't really matter...some of it kinda sucks.

1. I am getting gray hair. Not one or two, but many. If you didn't look closely you probably wouldn't be able to tell. But on the days I do look, there are many.
2. I am more comfortable in higher waisted jeans/pants/shorts. YUCK. It's not because I've found cute stylish ones (I realize they are in fashion now), but it's because I am constantly trying to cover my post babies tummy. Apparently I tug my jeans up compulsively, without realizing it. It was brought to my attention when my 19 year old stepdaughter told me that it always looks like I always have camel toe. Again, YUCK.
3. Similar to #2, I am trying to find a bathing suit. Goal: flattering suit to completely disguise tummy, lift boobs, elongate legs/arms, and still make me feel cute and youngish. Even slightly sexy. Suits matching this description come with a skirt and the option solid stripes or Hawaiian print.

On the plus side, I still get carded when I buy beer. That's gotta count for something, right?

I think you look great, but I just wanted to say that I've seen a lot of retro style swim suits lately, and I think that would be so cute on you! I this works, you might have to scroll back to the next page of posts, anyway this is a blog I love, and check out her cute suit in the post!

I hear ya...I've taken to wearing granny panties with a lot of spandex in them. They hold in my tummy and come up over my belly.

I bought the ugliest bathing suit because it claimed to make you look 10 pounds thinner. I think I need to find something a little less grandma-ish!! I should post a picture of it on my blog. You would laugh.
