SHOPPING

My husband will probably be mighty glad when my mom leaves because we've been spending money like a pimp with a week to live. In addition to gardening stuff, we've been buying baby things and maternity clothes.

And boy howdy, did I pick the right era to get pregnant in. Maternity clearance rack: $14.95. OK, let me just walk across the aisle to the juniors section. Shirts that look exactly like maternity: $4.97. This wacky style right now is perfect for chicks who want cheap maternity shirts. They're everywhere these days.

And we walked through the dresses section; man, I wish I'd had a camera on me. What in the holy heck is going on with dresses? It looked like the costume rack from Laugh In. Funky psychedelic nightmares on empire-waisted dresses that would barely cover your butt. Seriously, Twiggy's clothes are back in style. And half the patterns looked like something Mrs. Roper would wear.

My mom joked that I've bought more clothes for myself this week than I have since I got married. And she's probably right, considering the shirt I wore out to the store was something I got in 1998.

Husband, don't look at the credit card this week. Between the emergency trip to the vet and my shopping spree...well, it's a good thing you get your deployment benefits this month.

1 I was out shopping today for a dress for my mother's wedding and I had the *exact* same thoughts. It is indeed a perfect time to be pregnant, and since I am not I have no desire to LOOK like I am. I should just get myself a pair of go-go boots and call it good.

2 I was noticing this trend starting last year, too. Maternity style empire waists and/or flowy-bottomed shirts are very popular right now. They make some people look pregnant who aren't, but yes; are very convenient for those lucky women who are. Now, if we can only conceive before this stuff goes out of style again...
