Summer Swimwear

 This post is underwritten by Old Navy. Whether you're looking for a tankini, bikini or a one piece, Old Navy has you confidently covered. 

Now that it is officially summer... it's time for the water! We might not have an ocean here in Minnesota, we do have over 10,000 lakes, including Lake Superior. Plus there are a ton of different pools and water parks here as well. Everett is old enough to really have some fun in the water, and of course I need to be right there with him. And totally catching some rays myself! 

I have to admit that wearing a swimsuit is not my favorite thing in the world. No matter what size I am, I always feel self conscious in a suit. And you can forget a 2 piece, especially after having a baby. Not only is my belly my least favorite part on my body, I have a GIANT scar from my belly button to to the bottom of my belly. (thank you c-section). 
So I will definitely be rocking a one piece this summer season! Plus running around with a toddler, I need to make sure everything stays in one place and can move along with me. 

Right now, Old Navy has an awesome selection of all different swimsuits for everyone. Including lots of belly happy one piece suits.
I  am totally loving this suit at Old Navy! Not only is the color awesome, but it totally covers my belly area. A complete summer life saver! 

I'm am really looking for beach season once again this year, now that I have some fun swimwear options. Whooo Hooo! 

Thank you again to Old Navy for sponsoring my post. I was compensated for this post as a member of Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all my own.

Happy Blog Birthday!!

This weekend my blog had a birthday and turned five years old!! It's really hard to believe that I have been blogging for that many years. I just started this blog on a whim, mostly because my cousins started their blog about their adoption journey and I wanted to jump on the blog bandwagon. 
When I told my parents I was starting a "Blog" they thought I was making it up! "What's a Blog?"
Looking back at my blog, I do a lot of laughing and cringing at some of my posts. I had no idea how to blog and place pictures. What the heck was HTML? And what was a follower? 
The best part about looking back, is all the changes that happened in my life. I started this blog as a single girl living it up in the better Twin of the Twin Cities... St. Paul. I just went through a pretty major break-up and was trying to figure out how to move on from that. Over the years, I've changed careers, bought a house, went on a lot of adventures, met my husband, got engaged, married, pregnant, moved into my husband's house, had a baby and sold my house. And now I am a happily employed stay at home mom. The pay is awesome! Lots of hugs and kisses and laughter!

Another fun thing about blogging is all the fun people I've "met" through the blog world! It's like a ton of pen pals from all the place! Not to mention through, blogging I've discovered some really cool blogs. Which inspire me in so many ways! 

Blogging isn't always easy, sometimes it's time consuming and sometimes I have NOTHING to say. Some days I could care less about ever writing another thing, but most days I have big ideas I want to share, even if I don't always have the time to blog. 

Thank you to all my readers... whether you have been reading since day one or just started yesterday, I really appreciate you all!! 

Happy Birthday Blog!
