I have a confession to make... I still wear my maternity underwear and my kids are 4 and 7! I'm sure your reaction is the same as my husbands, "throw those damn things away!" For some reason I just can't seem to find replacements that I like. I've ordered probably 4 different types from Victoria's Secret (I'm trying to get my sexy back - failing miserably though!) but I only wear them when my maternity ones are in the wash. I hate spending the money on these things when my drawer is already overflowing with uncomfortable, always "up my ass" underwear. I'm THAT person that you always see trying to slyly pick their underwear out of their butt hoping no one is watching, ha!
Over the weekend my husband said I needed an intervention, an "underwear intervention" and he threw away ALL my "ugly" underwear! I'm embarrassed to admit that this was not my first underwear intervention. When I was in high school my girl friends did the same thing because all I wore were Hanes - you know the ones that come in a package of 5? yeah, those. I had never thought anything of it and thought everyone else wore those too. That's when I was introduced to Victoria's Secret. I had a good run of sexy underwear until.... I had kids!
So, now that I can't fall back on my trusted, oh-so-comfy maternities, I'm going on the quest to find replacements. Please share your recommendations because clearly I need the help :) Surely I'm not the only person that struggles with this, or am I?
I just finished the book, Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews and I loved it. The story unfolds in ways you anticipate but also with unexpected twists. It takes place in Savannah, Georgia (and Tybee Island - which I had never heard of before!) and makes me want to go visit and buy a boat! The main character is a hard working woman who faces a very difficult situation but learns something new about herself along the way.
She's a woman that has dreams she doesn't give up on and is empowered by calling something "her own". This feeling of knowing you were born to be your own boss is something I can relate to.
And a story wouldn't be good without a love story... this one has a good one! I don't want to give any of it away but I highly recommend you add this to your list of must reads.
Next on my list is Return to the Beach House, by Georgia Bockoven. Can you tell I don't want summer to end :)
