Suitin' Up

I finally ordered the bathing suit that I've been drooling over for weeks. Thanks to some very sly blogging buddies, I was able to scour some sites and find three promotional codes that added up to free shipping, $10 off and a free tote bag - a grand total of $42. The entire Protein Bar family (Daddy, Little, Baby Sis and Big Brother) is heading to the Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort on Marathon Key in June, and I needed something amazing to sport. What do you think of my new purchase?

The top in the first picture with the less scandalous bottoms:

In other Polka Dots & Protein Bars news, it is currently 80 degrees and breathtakingly sunny in Charlotte today, which bodes well for my Steeplechase trip tomorrow. Of course in my painfully indecisive brain, the debate rages on between wearing my pretty derby hat or my cheerful and quirky DIY floral headband. I guess it will be a gametime decision.

Speaking of which: tomorrow is draft day! I do love the NFL draft (I am glued to my television for every single round), and I hope my beloved Panthers will come away with some excellent additions to the squad. I'm now a writer for the super fun Web site Chicks in the Huddle, which targets female football fans! The site is owned, operated and written solely by female football fans, and I am proud to be the "Panthers Chick" chronicling all of the on and off field drama of my favorite cats! If you obsess over the pigskin like I do, come check it out! Football season is enticingly close, and I can hardly wait for my Vols and Panthers to take the field this fall.

This post took a dramatic turn from summer goodness to autumn lust, but as you know by now, things like that tend to happen around here :-)

Cute bathing suit!! I hope the Panthers get some good players in the draft :-) (as long as they don't take them away from Indy or the Giants- Manning obsession right here)

I'm in love with that resort. I had to go take a look at it and now I'm ready to book our next vacation. Have you been there before?

Would you be willing to share your wonderful coupon deals from Vicki's? At that price maybe even I would splurge for a new swimmer!
