Swimdress Opinions and BYOC

I did some dreaded bathing suit shopping today. The best thing I could come up with was a swimdress. Here's the style, though mine is a different print. What do you think? Lame? Cute? I'm torn. All I know is it does hide not-so-attractive tops of my thighs really well.

Now for some BYOC:
It’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy…a couple of questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog and enjoy!

1. If you were asked to symbolize yourself as an animal – which animal would you be?

I'd have to go with a giraffe. They are my favorite animal (I even collect any giraffe item I can find!). Anyway, they are so tall and graceful --- everything I am not.

They can be laid back... like here, they're all "What up, yo?"

And they have their goofy side too:

2. Did you ever play an organized sport – with coaches, rules and scoring? Tell us about it.
I was on the dance team in highschool, and I was also a cheerleader for a bit. To this day I am still quite good at projecting my voice. And I can do a mean high kick. In grade school, I played basketball. My favorite memory of this is how the coaches (my dad and some other school dads -- it was a small catholic K-8 operation) taught us to play ball in hockey terms. We were playing right wing, left wing, etc. I didn't even know what a point guard or a forward was until I tried out in high school and had no idea what the hell the coach was talking about. Oops!

3. When did you start shaving your legs?
I started when I was in 5th grade. This may seem early, but I was on the cheerleading squad (see above), and this Italian girl was not about to parade around in a short skirt with hairy legs in front of the whole school!

4. When you’re in a crabby – pissy – want to stab everyone you see kind of mood – what do you do to get out of it or do you revel in it?
throw things. Once I broke a window when I hurled a bottle of lotion at it. I don't even remember what I was so pissed about at the time. It needed replacing anyway. That's what I like to tell myself.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.
I have had another rough week in real life, so my contributions to blogland have suffered. I haven't been posting/commenting as much as I'd like.

That's a really cute bathing suit!! And giraffes are really cool, fun animals. I'm sorry you are having a rough week, but it's nice to see you posting and I was just talking about you today and how I want to spend more time with you in Chicago this year (if you want to of course!). have a great weekend!

I personally love swim dresses. I think even if I were 140 lbs I would still like em! No idea way! I have one similar to that except it is black with white piping. Same kinda straps. Very flattering on too!!

I have that bathing suit! (mine is solid black with turquoise piping) It's the one I wore at the beach and hubby told me I looked "cute." I love it!

I like the suit... being a little dress and all, you won't need a coverup to feel comfortable.
