A Pretty Posing Suit...And The Perfect Grapefruit

Good evening everyone, and Happy Easter to you all!

Thank you for all your wonderful input about yesterday's Swiss Miss Cake Rolls. Apparently not as many of you fantasize about them as much as I do. Though, Little Miss Blogger might, but she prefers Hostess Ho Ho's.

I think I like this Fantasy Food Friday because then I get to find out what kind of foods you all dream about it. For example, I've never even heard of Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby that Sarah talked about. My husband wondered if eating it would make him chubby. Ha, Ha.

But at long all get to see the posing suit that I got in the mail yesterday and that I had specially sewn for me. I love all the sparkles. I've already tried it on and my belly looks flat in it and you can't even tell I've ever had kids. It's really amazing to me. I always thought I would have to deal with looser skin around my belly area...and don't get my wrong it IS looser, but when I put this on and pose the way they want you to pose...everything flattens out. It really gives me hope and encouragement that I can have a "beach body" despite having a bunch of children.

And even though, I'm eleven weeks along, the V dip in the middle creates a flattened illusion especially when I tighten my lower abs.

The crystals pattern continues in the back, and if you look close, you might be able to see where the posing suit straps hook onto the back. It's very beautiful and I will get some pictures taken for my own personal memories.
Other than that, I think I took the best picture thus far of grapefruit.

Allow me to present to you....grapefruit in natural light...

Does that NOT just beckon you to eat it?
In this picture you can clearly see all its succulent fleshy patterns.
Seriously, I really am going to write a poem about grapefruit. LOL!
I went on a four mile run this morning and afterward put a 5 oz banana, a scoop of chocolate protein powder, four ice cubes and eight ounces of water into the blender.

It actually ended up being more than this...
But again another refreshing drink.

THEN ....
I went to Barnes and Noble with a friend and took some photos
of the treats they had under glass
These shots turned out really nice,
so I wonder if they scrub their glass very clean.

Some kind of chocolate cheese cake...

A little bar...

chocolate chip cookies...
I didn't eat any of these things, but I really enjoyed looking at them.
Well, Sunshine Mama has had a long, busy day.
I was almost thinking of not blogging because it's late and I'm tired,
but I told you all I'd post these posing suit pictures.
I did end up getting a bunch of Easter candy to hide for the kids to have an Easter egg hunt.
I've already filled their baskets with an assortment of treats.
So, be prepared for some sugar-y pictures tomorrow.
I will say that I've had none of the candy while putting everything together.
I need to hit the sack y'all, but have a great day tomorrow!
Hope it's sunny and nice wherever you are!
Sunshine Mama


  1. Wowza! Hot mama coming through! That is some bikini! It's very pretty. All your hard work will show wearing that bad boy. I like the sparkles on it. Those would really catch the light when you are on stage and those lights hit you.
