Beach Rays {Giveaway} – CLOSED

So did I mention that I’ve been sewing myself a swimsuit for the past few nights?  I knew it would be a good challenge, and I wanted to gain some good experience sewing with knits and elastics.  I bought a yard and a half in three different colors so that hopefully by the 3rd attempt, I would have something to wear!  After all this constructing, sewing, ripping, cutting, and trying again and again to get it right, I will SOOOOO appreciate a good swimsuit!  I feel like I could take any swimsuit off the rack and tell you if it was constructed well.  Through all of this, I just might have unintentionally made myself the perfect candidate to review swimsuits, ha ha!  Thank you, Beach Rays, for giving me the opportunity to do just that!

Beach Rays carries some super attractive and extremely stylish swimsuits for men and women, and they’ve just come out with their new 2013 line of children’s swimsuits!  OH SO ADORABLE!

A new year means bigger kids, and “Rocket” was definitely in need of a good swimsuit.  Golly, he’s been growing like a weed!  Here are some of the boys’ swimsuits we had our eye on:

Together, we picked out the Aadan swimsuit, by Vroom Vroom, and he looks like a rockstar!

There were no corners cut on its construction.  There is a velcro fly, thick and high quality laces for a snug fit, and even a functional pocket with velcro closure on the back.  Perfect length, and true to size.

Love it.  The pattern is so modern and fun, and not too “little boy” for me.  The material doesn’t wrinkle, and I’m confident that the colors will not fade.  It is made out of 100% poly micro fiber for quick-drying.

And then as soon as I laid eyes on the Maya swimsuit, by RayRay, and even though I don’t actually have a girl, I knew I simply had to have it!  Yup, I’m a hoarder.  I’m banking on atleast one of the next 3+ pregnancies being girl, and when she comes, she’ll be one best-dressed baby!   And oh, what a diva.

 Everything about this is CUTE CUTE CUTE!  Oh, the ruffles!  Oh, that zebra print!  Oh, the hot pink flower details!  But really, its a very well-made suit besides all the frills.  Perfect stitching and attention to details, highest quality knit, and vibrant colors.  80% nylon and 20% spandex makes this very soft, stretchy, and comfortable.  $46 seems totally fair for this darling.

 Take a few minutes and get a little nostalgic about beach days while you peruse the Beach Rays shop in all its glory.

Perhaps you have noticed that our Ruby has an infected right eye A LOT of the time???  Or perhaps I only post pictures of her that aren’t so noticeable?  Either way our little girl is having surgery in the morning for a blocked tear duct.  We knew it was coming.  Eventually.  For months and months now we have been waiting, hoping for it to unblock all on its own.  To no avail.  So at 6:15 tomorrow morning we are reporting to the children’s hospital to have it taken care of.  The procedure itself is supposedly super simple, but the anesthesia part of it has me nervous.  It’s times like these that it’s hard being a parent.  As a mother I’m responsible for my babies, teaching them, and keeping them safe.  Tomorrow morning I won’t be in complete control of the situation.  I’m entrusting my child in the hands of doctors, nurses, and other medical staff.  St. Louis Children’s Hospital is a top notch facility and all involved are fully capable.  I have faith in that fact, but it’s still scary.  Most of all I’m looking forward to her being well.  Kids are resilient and I’m sure she will bounce back really fast!
