I am so excited to be going next week to the Romance Writers of America annual conference in Anaheim, CA. In my excitement to have access to a pool, I decided to take a chance and purchase a bathing suit. Now I have kids, so shopping alone is not always possible. So I ended up trying on bathing suits with two kids "helping" me pick the right suit.
Let's just say if I suffered from false pride, I have been cured. Here's a sample of some of the ever so tactful statements uttered by my loving cherubs.
"Ewww, is it supposed to look like that?"
"I see your tummy sticking out."
"Don't you want us to tell you the truth?"
Um, no, I really don't want the truth. So if you need to be grounded (translate: humbled, humiliated, mortified), let me recommend taking my children with you shopping. I did return with a suit, something with as much fabric as possible and a skirt down to my knees!
Here are the details:
- Wednesday, July 25, 2012; 5–8 p.m.
- Convention Center, Ballroom (third floor)
- Anaheim, CA
This event is free to the public so I hope to see everyone there!
So as I get ready for my trip (and recover from the psychological trauma of bathing suit shopping with my now fired personal assistants), let me know your itinerary for this summer. What are your hot summer plans?
