I love the high waisted swim suits that are around this year, but aside from the trip to Florida we’re planning to take this Summer, I rarely ever have need of a suit. So, instead of spending the extra money, I thought I’d DIY one from my old one piece. I loved the suit as a one piece, except, as with most, I kept having to pull it up and readjust the umm…chest area. Genetics. I figured I could tailor it a little better if I separated it. After hemming, adding elastic and bra hooks, I decided to add fabric ties to the back mainly to cover the bra hooks that showed just a tiny bit.
I spared you the real life modeling of the suit, just take my word for it. It fits and looks great and with only a tiny bit of skin showing. Modest is hottest. :)
This weekend I spent Saturday with Malisa. We visited some shops and ate ice cream before lunch. It was fabulous. The more we hang out, the more I think we were separated at birth. It’s a really wonderful thing to find a friend who is open and honest and who you see eye to eye on in more than just superficial things. But it’s also great when Malisa drives past an open house and does a quick u-turn so we can walk through it. I always want to walk through open houses, but never have the chance. Such a fun day!
Sunday was a bit rough though. I was grouchy to the nth degree and Josh graciously took over all things parental and let me take a break. I didn’t realize until Sunday evening, after resting all day, how much I need a day where I have no responsibility. Nothing to think about or do and I can just lay in bed. Usually I’m prepared and know when to take a break and have some “me” time, but it came up so suddenly this time and caught me off guard. Josh never once made me feel bad for zoning out, he never once shot a glaring eye in my direction, he carried on cheerfully and although I battled guilt for my attitude and for feeling selfish, I was really encouraged watching him go about the day with kindness. It’s amazing how an example like that can change your heart and encourage you.
Tomorrow starts phase two of our Summer schedule. We are adding a morning ABA therapist, which means we’ll have someone at the house working with Judah from 9-11am and 12:30-2:30pm. We are super excited how things are turning out! More on that later.
So any plans for the 4th of July? It’s kind of throwing me off that it falls on a Wednesday and not a Saturday, but our town has a really awesome parade and other festivities and Josh has the day off, so I’m sure I’ll adjust. :)
