Is it that time already?

I came in the house yesterday soaking wet and FREEZING! Why? I had just finished working out and it was 30 degrees (I'm really not sure exactly what it was) and I was like an ice cube!! I sweat like a MAN when I workout. It's gross really, but it makes me feel like I am REALLY working! So I walk in, and there lays one of the 10 catalogs I get from Victoria's Secret every week. But this one was the Swim Edition. I was like "WHAT??? Already!"

So I thumbed through it and found a few that I love! But I actually vowed to go do the whole "try on" process this year. I usually order from VS but I want to actually go out and buy one this year. Since losing all this weight, I am actually looking forward to a bathing suit season for once (in a very long time!) And I am also thinking that this is the last summer for at least two years that I will wear a bikini. Hubs and I plan to start trying to start trying for a baby sometime this year. So next summer, I will be fat and pregnant. But I GUARANTEE you that once that baby is out, it's back to the grind (I mean I do plan on working out all during the pregnancy as long as my Dr okays it). I will be back in a bikini that next year :)

Ok sorry, I digress... anyway, after looking at the VS catalog,i thought, well maybe I can order just ONE and shop for the others!! I usually purchase 2 or 3 bathing suits per year. I have no idea why, I just do!!

Here are some of my faves!!!

Hello Fabulous!!

Simply Stunning!



Nude-tastic



Tie-Dyed wonder!

I know it's not QUITE time yet to order, but now my mind is in "summer mode!" And going to the beach this weekend won't help! (But considering it's supposed to be 50 degrees-I'm sure I will snap out of it!) The cold has set in here in GA, and I will admit I like it, but I am ready for summertime!!

In other FASHION news! I sometimes send out emails to my mom and Hubs and the subject says... "NEED!" They know what it will be before they even open it. It's something that I am secretly wanting and I am just letting them know (er, wanting them to purchase)!! And this morning my sweet mother, replied with a "Yes you do! What size?" I was PUMPED!! So this little beauty is on it's way to me!!! Thanks MOM!! It's on mega sale and will be perfect for the wedding(s) I have coming up!


And speaking of THANKS... Krystyn over at Really, Are you serious? had a fabulous giveaway and GUESS WHO WON??? ME!! I couldn't believe it! I am one lucky girl!! Thanks girl for doing such a fun giveaway!! I love love your blog and we must do lunch soon. (PS-I will be in ATL for work some at the end of January-just throwing that out there) It's so ironic that I won, because the post she did about the giveaway she made a butterfly cake and I am going to make the exact same cake for my best friend's birthday! She (we shall call her Jack) turns 26 January 25th and she is coming to Smalltown, GA to celebrate! I can't wait to bake her that cake and give it to her :)

I ran in Target this past Saturday to grab some things and ALL in the FRONT of the store was bikinis galore! I mean really... because the high hear at the beach is 25 on Friday!!

I do LOVE the ones you picked out - and the dress! :)

Candice said...

I couldn't believe it when I received the VS catalog either! It seems so early for bathing suits. I am definitely going to need a new one this year. You picked out some cute ones...I especially love the purple one at the top! Unfortunately I've gained a few pounds instead of having a big loss like you...but your post made me feel super excited to be whittling my weight back down asap!

Lisa said...

I LOVE the suits! Too bad for me VS swimsuits don't fit my inordinately large ta-tas. Woe is me... Love the dress also. Hot, hot, hot! :)

zentmrs said...

I love that first one and have been trying to figure out if I should get it for our Hawaii cruise...

Lindsey said...

Those suits are so cute! And did you say you're trying for a baby this year, yayayaya! How exciting!
So did you decide where you're going for your one year?

EJ & Roo said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple one. i'm ready for summer to get here as well. it's been so warm in SC lately this sudden switch to cold weather has got me in a funk. not to mention i'm in boston this week and the high is only going to be 16 degrees tommorrow. my trip to miami next will only make me wish for summer more....

koopermom said...

That dress is HOT! I can't justify buying it though... :(

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

i LOVE the first suit and the black one is amazing, but my legs would never work in that suit. i never imagined that i wouldn't be in a bikini again this summer until you just said that. i'll have nasty flabby post-baby stomach!

i seriously laughed out loud at you sending emails to your mom and husband. i do that ALL THE TIME. shop it to me and fun jewelry emails. todd has an email file of all the things that i want! :)

The Mrs said...

My mind is already in summer mode as well. It did help yesterday when I woke up shocked that there was tons of snow everywhere.

Mojito Maven said...

like you and BEB, I TOO send emails to my hubby (but typicaly it is DIAMONDS haha) about clothes, shoes, restaurants I want to go. I guess we all think alike!

AND I love the first suit you posted!!!!

Emily said...

I got that in the mail too...it comes earlier and earlier every year! I love it though, I always find a ton of pieces that I like.

Wearing Mascara said...

Yay for swimsuit season! I was surprised too about getting the catalog so early and LOVE, LOVE the tie-die you picked! So cute!

Cute dress too! :-)

xoxo

Krystyn said...

Thanks for throwing all of those skinny models in my face! I'm still working on the baby bulge, and by working, I mean, doing hardly nothing! It was definitely easier the first time (because when she was sleeping, I could do stuff), but now when #2 is sleeping, #1 is still wanting attention.

I wonder if I should try the "need" email! Wouldn't that be fun!

And, yes, let me know when you are in the ATL (hopefully, closer to my side of town)... I would love to do dinner, or coffee, or something.

The Shabby Princess said...

I usually start working out like a mad woman when my VS Swim catalog comes. It's motivation. I hope that this year I can rock a bikini. I rocked the tankini last year. Sad!!

And, awwww, y'all want to start trying for a baby??!! How exciting. One of the ladies I work with is pregnant and it's such an exciting time. Yay for you guys!

SassyEngineer said...

I think the tie dyed one is my fav, but I have to admit that I don't really do bikinis. I tried once, and it wasn't good! I think they are super cute on others, but I feel like my bossoms are just busting out, and I am way to shy.

Chic Runner said...

I just want to take one of those bodies.... THANKS! :)

Landra Lynn said...

It's almost 90 here at the beach in California today... all I can think about is swimsuits LOL

Thanks for readding me! :)

KLC said...

You gotta buy that purple bikini it's HOT!!!!!

Texan Couture said...

I love the black one! & the dress is gorgeous!

Katie said...

Congrats on your win - it is SO cold now it is ridiculous...at least we have warm hearts :)

I love the first two suits...I would never do a nude - I would be afraid some old guy would actually think I am naked!!! yikes!

and love the dress - and that price!! wow!

Holly said...

I am IN love with the black one! The dress is AMAZING too!

Mrs. Cup said...

LOVE that dress!!! Those bathing suits are fabulous and you'll look great in them!! :)

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Aw, your mom is so sweet! And the dress is gorgeous! I can't believe all the swimsuits already either, esp. since we have a cold front coming tomorrow with -7 degree temps, ew! And ps - Love the black bikini!

Life at the White House said...

I got that catalog too and bookmarked a few I'm interested in. However, my body is just not ready to be in a swimsuit. I need a tan and need to lose 5 - 10 lbs. before I dare even try one on!

Congrats to you for being bikini ready!

Megan said...

I love alllll of those bathing suits! I am looking forward to going swim suit shopping soon! I sweat like a man during workouts too--so you aren't alone!!

StylishSuburban said...

Swimsuits are everywhere all ready. I do have to say they are great motivation to keep working out. I love the purple/pink swimsuit very cute. Also I have this dress and love it and plan on wearing it to a wedding as well. You got a MUCH better deal than I did that is for sure.

Newlywed Next Door said...

That's so exciting that you're going to be starting a family soon! Flaunt it while you got it girl!

Cali Girl said...

Tracy's Porch said...

I am sitting here freezing today and seeing those bikinis made me shiver ;-) Cute pix, though!

Have fun at the beach. I love Gulf Shores!

Natalie said...

I have just stumbled across your blog and girl, you are ADORABLE! I swear we would be friends in real life. I grew up in Marietta, GA and lived there for 22 years before I met my husband and ran off to Nashville.

Your blog is GREAT - I have enjoyed reading it!

Love those suits, by the way!! AND I ordered the BR dress at the crazy cheap price -- have been loving it since before Christmas -- so much easier to buy when it's on SALE!

morewineplease said...

Oh that dress will look darling on you! I am so impressed with your progress it's very encouraging... I just wish I could find a way to get your height!!
I like the first swim suit!

Caroline said...

I cannot believe how many stores already have their bathing suits out right now! I, for one, do not feel like trying on bathing suits when its 32* out, I'm extremely white, and feeling extra pudgy after all of the holiday goodies I ate.

BUT- I do have to say, you have some great taste! I'm loving your picks from the catalog, and totally loving that dress wayyy more! :)
