I bought this swimsuit (but with pineapples instead of stars) a few weeks ago and LOVE it. There’s one left, if you’re looking for something for the waning days of summer. (Make sure to size up! I went up two sizes and the suit fits perfectly).

    On changing your name after marriage, my grandmother (obviously this is a different era thing) thought that you had to. That there was a law or something that you had to change your name. And people choose many combinations to mail things to us, it’s pretty entertaining. I should start using that as the reason I didn’t change my name. For the mailing label entertainment value.

      We had something sent to us with *Husband’sFirstName* *MyMaidenName*. It was entertaining. I did take my husbands name for a variety of reasons, one of which was I hated my maiden name (which was a popular soup brand and if I heard one more soup joke I mighta ended up in prison).

    Ahhh, the name change debate again. I remember we got into this a few days ago on the feminist post too. I’m almost leaning towards the adding my name to my middle name and taking future husband’s last name. So Lyra *middlename* *mylastname* *husbandslastname* as my legal name. Hmmmm. I kinda like that. But that could change in 10 minutes. Haha.

    Wow, the parents one is dumb. Total opposite of Wendy’s great post a few weeks ago. I have a friend that I’ve barely seen since she had kids, though, and I wonder if she thinks the way this author does. She didn’t come to one of my parties because she couldn’t find a baby sitter. Even though multiple other friends had no problem bringing their kids. And really, of the 5 good friends I have that are now mothers, there’s only just the one that’s disappeared. Sure, I don’t see the others as often, and now the kids usually tag along, but we still at least see each other.
