Moms wear swim suits too

Wednesday has quickly become my most favorite day of the week to post. Which is awesome, cause it’s a fun highlight for my otherwise ordinary week :) 
I'm linking up to What I Wore at The Pleated Poppy
Let’s take a peek at what I’ve been wearing, shall we? 

After my great debate last week, I did wear my usual two piece swim suit to swim lessons. And here’s the suit that caused me so much unneeded stress. 

Once in the pool, no one was aware of what anyone else was wearing, so the stress was totally unnecessary. However, with a grabby little baby like my sweet Isabelle, I think mama will be on the lookout for a cute tankini or one piece for this summer. I like making sure everything stays covered! 

This is what happens when I don’t have someone take a picture for me. To be honest, I was pretty impressed with how well I did with the self-timer. I love breezy white skirts for summertime! 

Kaylee and I wore our matching race shirts for the Mother’s Day 5k which was a lot of fun. This was an awesome race shirt too – a performance tee, as opposed to a plain tshirt! 

This is how I usually dress, besides when I’m getting all dressed up for the sake of my blog. Tshirt and jeans – shorts, in this case. Comfy casual at its best. 

Lets link up with Jennifer at Peas and Crayons!

As for what I’m eating, it’s all thanks to this baby. 
Yes, my very own VITA-MIX.
It arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago, and I’ve been blending up all kinds of smoothies. I love it! 
I make my fruit smoothies with yogurt, milk, and lots of fruit. Anything goes! I love to throw in strawberries, blackberries, peaches, bananas, mangoes, and pineapple. So delicious!

It comes with a recipe book, and will do a lot more than smoothies, but for now that’s all I’ve tried.
We’ve just been too busy for me to get in much more quality time in with my new favorite appliance. My hubby is anxiously awaiting some Vita-mix broccoli cheddar soup.

And lastly, linking up with This kind of love.

I'm loving... that summer is here! Dude, it was still getting down in the 30s just within the last week or two, and yesterday it was 102 here. Our weather is wild!

I'm loving... my gorgeous necklace from Not Just Any Old Day! Don't forget you can get an exclusive discount when you use the link on my site!

I'm loving... the most delicious corn I've ever eaten! I'll share a recipe with you soon!

I'm loving... that in less than a month, I'll be in Florida with my sweet girls. Sunshine state, here I come!

I'm loving... that my big girl rides in the shopping cart now, instead of the infant carrier car seat!

I'm loving... that she also transitioned to her "high chair" instead of just the bumbo!

I'm loving... that my brother is in town and will be over for dinner tonight!

He's a rockstar! For real! Check out www.abandonkansaslovesyou.com/ :)
(I really need to write a post about them!)

What's your go-to daily outfit? 


  1. Um yes! yes you do! I want to hear more about your bro's band!

    Your swimsuit is super cute! No need to stress it =)

    Hooray for your new vitamix! <3 broc and cheese soup sounds soooo good right now! regardless of the temp! I'll eat it all spring/summer long! =)

  2. My baby is 4 months old and after always being a bikini wearer I need to invest in a full swimsuit (maybe bodysuit??) pronto!

  3. well don't you look great in a bikini little miss!!

    I LOVE CORN! and is that onions in there? do share!

    loving the cute pics of your little girl!!!

  4. hey megan. super excited i found your blog. I'm a new follower, I hope you will as well. I started my blog 2 months ago. It's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I moved to cali last year after graduating back in the south and I can't get enough of your blog. Would love if you could stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Would love your support. xoxo


  5. Look at you, totally rockin' the bikini! Wowza!

    Totally hear you on the need for coverage with a grabby little one ;-)

    Isn't the shopping cart heaven?! And I love those floppy seat cover things... I finally got one for my 4th baby :P

  6. The pictures are so, nice and that smoothie looks great!

    I am following you from the blog hop, you have a great site. Would you like to follow me back? Susan's Family

    thank you :)

  7. I need a wetsuit or something to prevent Faith from exposing my goods to the world. :)

    Isabelle actually sits in the cart? I'm jealous, Faith only did that for like 2 weeks before she realized that Mommy would carry her if she threw a fit in the middle of the store, lol.

  8. I really want a blender, but I can't bring myself to spend the money. Sad? Yes.

    Also, I've been big on skirts this season, too. I love your white one. I'm always afraid of wearing white on the bottom because that'll be the day I sit on a strawberry or dog poo or something :)

  9. Oh and also...I'm totally going to start sending you messages in lines from FRIENDS :)

  10. Your bathing suit is cute!
    PLEASE share the corn recipe... mmmm... I love corn.
    Your brother's band's site it really nice... I like that video "Heaven Come My Way"
    Can't wait to hear more about him!

  11. Looking fabulous as always! I'm sure you and the girls will have so much fun in Florida!

  12. Cute Blog! Happy Wednesday! I would love for you to stop by and check out my blog as well! If you like it you can follow back! Thanks! Hope to blog with you again soon!

  13. Visiting from WIWW ~ fun blog! Love the white skirt, and that smoothie looks delish!

  14. Can't wait for the corn recipe!
    Cute outfits!
    And yes, we need to hear more about your hot bro! ;)

  15. See, I knew the 2 piece was a good choice! And with your body, you def need to be rocking a 2 piece. Your baby is presh in her little booster seat high chair and in the shopping cart. Can't wait for the corn recipe and I LOVE smoothies. I used to make them all the time when I was younger, but I've been too lazy to buy a blender since mine broke in college. Maybe I'll do that this weekend, I sure do miss them!

  16. I knew you would be fine with your 2 piece! :) My everyday wear is Jean shorts and a Tshirt too.

    Yummy SMOOTHIES! Congrats on the Vita-Mix!

    So jealous of your upcoming Florida trip! (we actually talked about going in a couple weeks also!)

    and YAY Isabelle! I know how much I enjoyed it when the boys finally transitioned to riding in carts, instead of carriers.

  17. I also love Landon being in his high chair. We had to put the Bumbo in storage when he almost twisted out of it once when I was taking too long to get his food ready!
    I've been wanting to try putting Landon in the shopping cart...do you think the little shopping cart cover thing is worth it?

  18. Hi Megan!
    Nice to meet you! Found you on WILW ... and I think I'm gonna like it here! :-)
    Just reading your "Who am I?" - I can see we have a lot in common already ....
    I'm a mom and a teacher (half-time since having my little girl) - and my latest dream is to open my own preschool!
    Can't wait to read more!

  19. You are too cute. And BRAVE for posting a bathing suit picture! :-)

    So I'm curious about your Vitamix. You really love it? I've been debating. My blender doesn't do a very good job with smoothies.

  20. I have two grabby toddlers, so the bikini debate has been going on in my house for awhile now! Good for you to go for it!! Thanks for visiting my site today.:)

  21. Isnt it great when they can start riding in the cart! Such a hassle to drag the carrier everywhere! Have a great day! :)

  22. I always stress about what swimsuit to wear to my son's swimming lessons. All the other moms have like one piece competitive swimmer type suits and I feel weird coming in in a summer print suit.

    Also, I want a Vitamix so bad!

  23. Beautiful girls! New fan from the hop! Stop by and visit soon!

  24. Love your cute white skirt, jealous of your vita mix (those smoothies look delic!), and love all your loving's :)

    New follower, found you through WILW!

  25. HECK YES you should wear the suit! I say if you look good in a 2 piece, you should WEAR one! Although, my grabby baby is now 5 years old so it's easy for me to say that ;) You look great though! And I LOVE the little white skirt, think I'll keep my eye out for one!

  26. Epps...a grabby babe would definately make a two piece a bit more risky :) Love your "timer" shot...I would never have known!

    A Florida girl's trip in your future...FUN!

  28. I'm glad the swimsuit issue turned out to be a non-issue. You should try Target for tankinis or Old Navy, thats where I've had the best luck!

  29. Those are some awesome things that you are loving today!!! Hope you have a great Wednesday!

  30. I agree - that is a nice race shirt! Nice post. :)

  31. My daily go-to outfit is usually shorts and a tank top -- to show off my hot arms, of course. (Bahahah.) Usually it's more athletic because I am always doing something physical and hyper.
    Those performance 5k race T-shirts sound really nice. You girls look adorable!

  32. way to rock the two piece, hot mama!! headed to check out the band :)

  33. Just wanted to thank you for the link to Not Just Any Old Day! I ordered a key necklace with Alexandra's bday! Very cool! You and your girls look super cute in these pics! Which one is your bro in the band?

  34. Can i tell you that I HATE YOU!?!?! You look great! there is no way I could do a two piece after my second. Grrr... You look wonderful!

  35. I always stress about which swimsuit to wear. Sometimes I wonder if a mom of four should really be wearing a two piece and then I remember that I won't be able to pull this off forever and wear whatever I want.:)

    You look absolutely adorable. I can't wait to learn more about you.

  36. You look great in that swimsuit! And I love the white skirt, too!

  37. You look totally amazing in your swimming suit, sweetie and I need a blender like that. Smoothies are the best during spring and summer...Yum!
    Btw: Love all those photos, hugs

    Ps: I’m hosting a beautiful dress GIVEAWAY today! Just in time for summer!

  38. You go girl, you look fabulous!!

    And as for the Vitamixer...those things make some awesome margarita's just with fresh fruit, some sugar and tequila! My friend has one, she uses it all the time! She also makes soup in it!

  39. thanks for stopping by my blog today! I need one of those VitaMix machines like today! That thing looks awesome! Yay for you wearing the 2 piece! I am going to wear mine another year too...I was on the fence about a one piece but heck I love a 2 piece so why not?

  40. notice how your friends have towels? i'm telling you, it's just not done. (just joshing you.)

  41. Ooooo.... you got a vitamix! totally jealous. please tell me all about how much you love it and what it is great for. did you find a deal for it? or did you go all out?!?!

  42. Definitely -- cool vitamix!! And lots of other fun stuff! :)

  43. YUM! Those smoothies look so delish!! I would love to hear more about your brother! How cool is he?!

  44. P.S Im excited to hear about your brother and his band!

  45. Girl!!! Your HOT!!! YUUMMM love some corn, cant wait to get that recipe!!! Im coming to FL with you!!

  46. Love your pictures--the kids are so cute. I'm happy summer is nearly here too!

  47. That smoothy looks so awesome! I love that the swimsuit wasn't such a big deal after all. The things that we mom's stress over that are so unnecessary. But it doesn't go away...we just keep doing it!

  48. Aww, your little girl is adorable! She's 8 months? My son is 8 months. He's just about ready to get out of the infant car seat and sit on his own in the grocery cart and whatnot. Couldn't happen soon enough for me. Carrying him in the infant carseat now gives me blisters. UGH!

  49. That corn looks delish! I'll be looking for the recipe. I might have to try it for my recipe a week! Great list of loves today :)


  50. I hate that dilemma of wondering what bathing suit to wear. I'm glad you just wore what you wanted!

  51. Wednesday's usually my favorite too! BUT I didn't get on blogger AT ALL yesterday. It was a little bit of a shock to my system. lol

    What are you going to Florida for? Disneyworld?

  52. Cute post. Yes, always go for a tankini type swim suit with the kids. Bikinis are too risky with them. Be careful of one piece ones though cause if you are like me and you put it on under your clothes before leaving the house to make it easy to change you can't use the bathroom easily with them. I like 2 piece tankinis better for that reason.


  53. I'm you newest follower! Please follow me back at Adventures of a Thrifty Mommy!

  54. You are too cute and CAN totally pull off that 2-piece! Love the white skirt with that blue! It's so summer. =)
