Bathing Beauty

I fell in love with this bathing suit the first time I saw it, but the smallest size that they make it in is 12-18 mos....
what's a momma to do? ------Order it for next summer, that's what!
I couldn't help but try it on her and it's big, but still looks so cute...

I cant wait to see her walking around in it next summer!!!

We got home from the river on Friday. As wonderful as the week was, it's good to be back. I completely agree with Dorothy, that "there's no place like home."

I do hope that this week is better than last as far as "big news" goes.

After Jon & Kate's announcement, then Farrah Fawcet and Michael Jackson both passing away, Sunday morning we got up only to learn that Billy Mayes had also died. I've said before that I have a weakness for an infomercial. I didn't know that Billy was a fellow Floridian. I also don't know who they'll get to replace him. Who else could sell everything from "The Awesome Auger" to "Mighty Putty" to insurance with such excitement and the ability to convince millions that the advertised product will not only work, but will change their life? Nobody could get me as excited to see what else you'd get if you called within the next 10 minutes, with his signature phrase, "but wait, there's more" like Billy. I just hope they don't replace him with the guy on the Sham-Wow commercials. Bless his heart, he's just scary.

We had a busy weekend, so all the laundry was waiting for me yesterday. After 3 loads, I thought my washing machine was going to be next on the list....
It stopped and wouldn't do anything. None of the lights would even come on. It's on it's last leg anyway, so I wasn't that shocked that it had finally quit. DW worked on it a few weeks ago and we were hoping to get some more life out of it. When he looked into what was wrong with it, he said the new part that we'd need would be around $100.00, and since it's as old as it is he hated spending that much on it, so we'd just let it keep doing it's thing and once it quit, we'd buy a new one....I broke the news to him yesterday afternoon that I thought the time had come that we were going to have to replace it....then he came home, looked behind it, and plugged it back in.
Oh..., okay.... Seriously, who's washing machine comes unplugged on it's own? It sounds terrible when it's spinning, and it even does a little walk to halfway to the middle of the laundry room when it's going... but I keep the laundry room door closed and after each load I push it back in it's place against the wall.... and keep on hoping it will last another year or two, because we don't want to be buying a new one anytime soon--- especially when there's cute bathing suits to be bought for a certain little somebody....

Okay--plugging back in the washing machine is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time!!

I guess we all have washing machine stories...my hot water worked all the time and the cold never...Steven blamed it on the new machine.... Uncle Punk, our handy man in the family, stopped by and switched the hoses...now I have spring fresh water again and my clothes smell heavenly.

That is the cutest little swimsuit I've seen! If it comes with monograms or bows, there's nothing better out there! : )
