Saturday Soundoff: Would you greet your sister’s guests in a swim suit?



And, I begin and end with this question: How would you feel if your sister wore this while hosting your bridal shower? Notice the guests in the background. Everyone else wore shorts, cover-ups or dresses.

I just can’t get past the hygiene issue of serving and eating food while wearing a bathing suit. I mean the kiddie pool and Cheetos is one thing, but a bridal shower?   Hey, I love casual get togethers and I am thrilled Jessica is in great shape, but to a bridal shower? Seriously?? Leave me a comment!!!
